Regina Turner, the new head of the NGO committee arrives to judge the elimination rounds. Payson sneaks out to see Rigo despite the strict curfew Coach McIntire issued. Coach McIntire receives an anonymous text that Payson snuck out and he bumps Lauren and Payson to compete the first day of qualification rounds. Sheila is back at the USATC and she insinuates to Jordan that the only reason Coach McIntire has allowed her to get this far is because she is African American. Sheila asks Kaylie to stop messing with Kelly Parker's competitive edge. Kelly Parker finds out that her mother is now working as Wendy's manager and is not happy.
Meanwhile, Jordan refuses to perform the "Layout Jordan," a special move named after her. Regina is skeptical of Jordan but Coach is convinced she will help the team win gold. KP is ultimately cut and Sheila is furious and blames Jordan. Sheila admits to Kelly Parker she managed Wendy to obtain information to feed Coach about the girls. The girls are surprised to learn that Wendy has been the mole all along, and has been using Sheila to her advantage. During the qualifying rounds Payson blurts out that Lauren is sick when she notices Lauren's shaky hand movement. Lauren is dismissed from training and ends her friendship with Payson from the hospital bed.
