Episode 2

Shock horror, you're stuck ♪
Do you feel like you suck? Yeah ♪
This is ruined.
- I thought you might've learned by now.
- What's that supposed to mean?
I mean being careless is dangerous.
Grace! Clara! What's going on?
She thinks it's my fault
Leila's in the hospital.
Well, you didn't catch her.
- What is wrong with you?
- All right, girls, that's enough.
What's wrong with me?!
Because everything's my fault?
Calm down.
- Shall I get some help?
- Yes, uh, quickly! Go get somebody.
Are you okay?
Deep breaths. It's Okay.
Shock horror, you're stuck ♪
Do you feel like you suck? Yeah ♪
Shock horror, you're stuck ♪
Hi, um, there's been
a huge fight in Room 308,
and, um, I've been told to get help.
Okay, could you go and get Mr. Malik?
- No, I've tried. He's not in his office.
- Oh.
It's urgent! All right, I'm coming.
Ms. Carson speaking.
Yes, good morning.
I understand.
The accident was unfortunate.
Oh, the girl's still in hospital,
but thankfully I hear she's doing okay.
I can put this right.
Still not making it ♪
Master key card
Still girls faking it ♪
Hey, oh ♪
Deep breaths.
Calm down. Calm down.
- It's all right.
- Get some water.
Shock horror, you're stuck ♪
Do you feel like you suck? Yeah ♪
Everything's going to be okay.
Shock horror, you're stuck ♪
Do you feel like you suck? Yeah ♪
- Mr. Malik?
- Yes?
Could you check Room 308?
- Okay, sure.
- Apparently there's been an incident.
I do have some initial ideas
to run past you.
Deep breaths.
Deep breaths.
Of course.
Of course.
Yes, I'll be there.
You should've got a better bed ♪
Better for your head
Better heads need shut-eye ♪
People, all the people
With big bellies banging bigger drums ♪
They beat down on you
They beat the pulse into your shoes ♪
Well, that went wrong fast.
You don't get to write
the script next time.
"You didn't catch her"? That was mean.
You're not even in her stunt group.
- No one expected that of you.
- I expected it of me.
Besides, it worked. Rumi got out.
Yeah, then it got her locked back in.
Okay, first, we need to rescue Rumi.
Then we steal the master key card,
get the CCTV of the hall,
and boom, we find out
who's tampered with Leila's water bottle.
How do we rescue Rumi?
Leila's MRI results are coming in.
You should head.
But I know you'll fix this.
- I've got total faith in you.
- I wish I did.
Ms. Carson, can I speak to you, please?
It's quite important.
Everything's important to you,
isn't it, Grace? Go on, then.
Have you heard of a website
called Anonymous Truth?
It's where people post
their problems, secrets, scandals.
There are quite a few aimed at Bannerman.
They're not good.
What do you mean, not good?
Ugh, signal's bad.
- Might be better out here.
- What's the address? I'll just type it in.
You need to have the app.
"The bullying at Bannerman's
getting worse."
"There's nowhere to turn. No one cares."
"Most days, I dread coming to school."
"They laugh at me. Call me names."
"I can't cope anymore."
- And all these are anonymous?
- Yeah.
If I'm going to be school president,
I'd like to do something about it.
Anyway, uh, I'd better go.
Thank you for taking the time.
- Good mood today.
- Can I, like, high five you?
- You seem like a high-five kind of guy.
- Wow, your instincts are spot on!
Rumi Joshi, report to Mr. Malik
for failing to return to class.
How are you feeling today?
Same. I'm bored.
Ankle's killing me.
- Hey, Reece.
- How are you feeling?
- Um
- I'm worried about you.
Clara, you all right?
- Yeah. Hey.
- Oh.
I got this for you.
- Ah. Hey, Reece.
- Yeah.
Well? What did the doctor say?
Well, she says it's good news
in that it's nothing more
than just a mild concussion.
But, um,
although the swelling's going down,
your ankle's still badly sprained,
so you're going to have
to stay off it for a while.
- Quite a while.
- But I can't.
What about cheer?
This is my last chance, Dad,
to help win this for the school,
for your team.
Yeah. Yeah, I know.
I'm so sorry, darling.
Which one's the mainframe?
It's so confusing.
They all look the same to me.
Yeah, yeah, that one there.
The one with the sticker.
Um Hi.
I've to go. Good luck.
Toilet detention too, huh?
What even is that?
Just like sitting around,
waiting for people to pee.
What are you in for?
Rainbow laces.
I knew this school was strict,
but not this strict.
Well, welcome to Bannerman!
You're in for a treat.
What are you listening to?
You know when someone
has headphones on,
it's usually a sign
they don't fancy a chat.
I didn't know that.
Now you do.
Okay, but what if the other person,
the non-headphone-wearing person,
thinks that silence is the absolute worst?
Then I guess
they annoy me into submission.
Wolf Alice, second album.
Even when you do talk,
you expend, like, zero energy on it.
I don't like unnecessary words.
I love unnecessary words.
I got that.
We should do some work.
And one's blocked.
So, this is Project L,
AKA, Project Leila.
So, for the past few months,
someone, let's call them X
X? Really?
I mean, can't we go bigger, like
like Evil Demon Monster?
Or or Invisible Rage Being?
X targeted May
with bullying notes in her locker.
Last Friday, Leila also received a note
threatening her not to go ahead
with the cheer performance.
Clara said
that she saw Leila looking faint
right before she fell
from the top of the pyramid.
And now Leila's water bottle is missing.
Our task is to figure out
who messed with it,
who could've hurt Leila,
and why.
Are we meant to be taking notes?
So, suspects. Anyone with a motive,
someone who hated Leila,
someone who was jealous of Leila?
Great work.
Nothing's happening here.
Are you okay?
This has just
got to work.
Did you talk to Leila about the note?
She doesn't need that right now.
Wait, who's that?
Viola? Pause it.
What is she doing?
Viola did make that comment
about Leila only being flyer
because of Dad.
Yeah, but May's her friend.
Is she really cruel enough to bully her?
What next?
We get Viola to confess.
On camera.
Oh, sorry, excuse me! Excuse me!
Sorry, sorry, sorry.
Sorry! Sorry!
Although, you won't be mad at me
for being late when you see
what I ordered for us.
Pen camera.
- Sunglasses.
- Sunglasses?!
Okay, wait for it.
You're going to love this. Okay.
- Okay.
- What's going on?
- You're recording me?
- Oh!
And check this out.
A stone?
It's It's a spy camera.
For Viola's confession.
You are the best kind of weirdo.
Right, DGM,
let's do this.
Speaking in riddles ♪
Cutting the light outta my eyes ♪
Caught in the middle ♪
What'd you find buried alive ♪
Deep in the temple? ♪
Have you got a sec?
Um, okay.
None of this makes sense to me.
I feel like Leila's blaming me
for her fall.
Oh, that's a shame.
But she's been so weird lately.
I don't know.
Tell me if this sounds crazy, but
do you think she was on form
the other day?
Well, clearly not.
She fell.
She found it hard.
Extra training, last-minute pressure.
Maybe someone else should've been flyer.
Well, I guess she was just lucky
to have your dad.
Oh, come on.
No offense, but it's not like anyone else
can have a shot with you guys there.
Did you want to be point flyer?
Of course. Who didn't?
How much did you want it?
How much did you want it?
It's her. I know it is.
I'll get the camera later. Come on.
You know, most people use
study periods for napping
or necking behind the bike sheds?
Yeah, I'm not most people.
What's this?
"Bullies don't exist in"
- Campaign stuff?
- Kind of.
I'm thinking of creating a safe space,
a lunchtime club for students
having a hard time.
Sounds wild.
- Any better ideas for helping students?
- You know me.
I get my kicks from knocking down
other people's ideas.
Really, the world's rough.
Look, it'd be great to help everyone,
but you can't.
You might as well have fun.
Skip class, break rules.
See, no. I'm done with this mind-set
of "you can't change anything,
so why try?"
People are struggling.
If I can help one person, why not?
Where did Fighty Grace come from?
Fighty Grace?
She's always been here.
- Why? What's wrong with her?
- No, nothing. I like Fighty Grace.
She's cool.
You're way too chirpy.
I'm a happy person.
- What, you want me to be less happy?
- About 90% less happy, yes.
This is cool. What is it?
Mozart? Long way off.
Wolfgang Amadeus?
Same person, genius.
But no. This is Beethoven
and me.
Wait. Is that a video?
Oh, no, I have to see this.
You look
so engrossed in it.
My wrist is too stiff.
But, yeah, I get pretty caught up.
Don't know how else to be.
When I dance, I'm mostly thinking
about what I'm going to watch on TV later.
You dance?
Just had an audition
for the Royal School of Ballet.
- But your mind was on something else?
- Yeah.
And I thought that was normal.
Well, I'd love to stay and chat,
but I've got rehearsals.
You are officially chief toilet cleaner.
Isn't it, like, illegal
to make us clean toilets?
They don't.
We're just here to monitor.
I just thought it'd be fun
to see you plunging.
It was totally worth it.
- Uh
- Later, genius.
Last-minute pressure.
Maybe someone else should've been flyer.
Well, I guess she was
just lucky to have your dad.
There's nothing we can use.
She's still not said anything about Leila.
Wait, she's coming back.
Mouse, when did you last shower?
Your new concealer, it's not working.
Send it back, you look like death.
I didn't know she was that bad!
Yeah. I thought she was
a medium-terrible human,
not a full-on terrible human.
She's a bully. A bully who wouldn't
think twice about hurting someone.
We need more of this.
One, three, five, seven.
Keep that knee locked,
Brooke, yeah?
Line up, easy.
One, two, three.
Switch, five, and
Not bad.
Okay. Attention, squad.
Okay. Sadly, Leila will not be
returning to cheer for a while.
Unless we find a new point flyer,
I'll have no choice but to pull
- Leila's group from the routine.
- What?
But I don't want to do that,
especially with the regionals
not far away.
So, there will be tryouts
for a new flyer on Friday.
Everyone interested,
names on the list, please.
Oh, Brooke!
You're signing up.
Uh, yeah, I just thought,
you know, why not?
Well, break a leg.
Mm. Too soon?
Why are you not lining up?
I can't do that to Leila,
especially as it was me who should've
You okay, love?
I know it's been a tough few days.
Look at me.
No one could've caught Leila's fall.
Not even me.
All right?
Mouse, you look pathetic.
Stop just watching and join in.
Go on.
Still nothing about Leila.
We can't use any of this.
I can't believe she's been treating
Mouse and May like this, all this time!
And we're the only ones who know.
No wonder she's been
getting away with it for so long.
You're right.
We're the only ones.
What if there's strength in numbers?
What if this footage went public?
Viola wouldn't be able to hide anymore.
Maybe others would come forward.
Maybe there's notes
we don't even know about.
- What, so you're saying, we should
- I'm saying
as long as Viola's in the shadows,
her secrets are safe.
If we expose her,
there's no coming back from it.
And we could destroy her life.
She destroyed her own life
when she hurt Leila.
You look so gaunt and shriveled.
I feel sick.
Me, too.
Why are you wearing those?
So no one can see my nerves.
Mouse, you look pathetic.
Stop just watching and join in.
Go on!
You look pathetic.
Stop just watching and join in.
Oh, little Mouse,
you look so gaunt and shriveled.
Gaunt gaunt You look pathetic
Door, please
Oh Door, please!
It's just really greasy
Wow. That's brutal.
Who made this?
Did you just wash your hair?
DGM? Are they back?
You need to tell Carson about this.
I had nothing to do with this.
- What's going on?
- You've probably got an email.
Say something.
Everyone thinks I bully you,
for God's sake!
You and May are exactly the same.
You can't take the truth,
so now I'm the one being punished for it.
You wrote the notes to May?
Oh, please.
They were just stupid little notes.
And this is just a stupid little video.
Until someone makes an official complaint,
what's this even about?
I'll make an official complaint.
My office.
She admitted to bullying May
because of us.
I still wish she admitted
to hurting Leila, though.
Sorry about what happened.
Do you know how much time
I spent helping those girls?
I care about my friends, you know?
And now I'm the one going because of what?
My sister might not think it's nothing!
Your sister?
- What does this have to do with her?
- I know what you did, Viola.
What are you talking about?
You know what? I don't need this.
Did she admit it?
Not sure it was her.
Bannerman School,
well done for exposing the bully
What is that?
But if you think everything's okay now,
think again.
Bannerman is dangerous.
It always has been.
You better get used to it.
Are you hearing this?
Watch your backs,
'cause it's getting worse
and no one is safe.
