Official Synopsis

"Hot off their video win, Jem and the Holograms perform at the Starlight Foundation's annual fundraiser - but the Misfits, anxious the Holograms' overnight success, plan to bring them down."


Jem 03 Misfits Pizzazz, Roxy and Jetta barge into the coffee shop where Stormer and Kimber are sat together. Pizzazz is furious, knocking people out of the way and being aggressive. People are filming them on their phones.
In Pizzazz's house, Pizzazz rants at Stormer, while they watch footage of the coffee shop incident on an gossip TV show. She accuses Stormer of being on a date with Kimber, and bans her from dating "the enemy", because it would damage the reputation of the band. Jem 03 Enemy

At their home, Aja tells Kimber that Jerrica is out on a date with Rio, and Kimber is surprised and very interested, because Jerrica normally doesn't go out on dates. Aja pries into where Kimber went when she left the Starlight Foundation early, and Kimber tells her - without naming names - that she went on a date with someone, but that she thinks the person is out of her league. Kimber, Aja and Shana eat ice cream together, talking about what happened on Kimber's date. They encourage Kimber to text her (Stormer).

Jem 03 Date Jerrica meets up with Rio, who is playing with a little girl called Clara. Clara goes home, and so Jerrica and Rio go on their date to "Pacific Park" amusement park. They ride a big wheel together, and Jerrica gushes about the other Holograms. Rio asks why Jerrica isn't the lead singer of The Holograms, and Jerrica tells him it's because she has no confidence. Rio wins her a stuffed animal in a ring toss game, and he gives her a ride home on the back of his motorcycle. They kiss
The Misfits are trying to record the music video for Crush, but they keep stopping to argue about which of them is messing up. Pizzazz gives up, and throws herself onto the sofa, where she catches Clash reading Google Alert news about Jem and The Holograms. She tells them the Holograms are playing a benefit tomorrow, for The Starlight Foundation. Pizzazz is angry that they're using The Misfits's contest to get themselves gigs, smashes her guitar and flips a table of food. Jem 03 Guitar Smash
Jem 03 Clash Clash calls her friend Blaze, asking for a favour. She asks Blaze to get her on the wait staff for The Starlight Foundation fundraiser so she can sabotage it.
