[crowd gasps]
[Clara] Leila!
Talk to me!
[coach] Leila?
- [man] What's going on?
- [woman] Leila's hurt.
[man] Call an ambulance!
This is all my fault.
Hey. Maybe now we'll get
a decent flyer for the cheer team.
Welcome to my contradiction ♪
I'm soft
But I like the friction ♪
I'm scared
Yeah, it's an addiction ♪
You're leaving me with her?
In this place?
It wasn't Bannerman who bullied me.
But Bannerman did nothing to stop it.
Well, maybe you can change schools too.
I have a better idea.

[Viola] Mouse, you look pathetic.
Stop just watching and join in.
[Mouse] Yeah, no, I did mine.
[Viola] Oh, it's just really greasy.
Hey, I saw that video. It was harsh.
Sorry you went through that.
I don't want your pity.
I don't want anyone's pity.

- Mouse! Hey.
- Hey.
We didn't tell you we found his inhaler.
- Why did you hurt my sister?!
- That's not cool.
Oh, it would have been a bit cool.
Or not!
[Mouse] I didn't mean to hurt anyone.
I just wanted to make Bannerman look bad.
You have to believe me.
We don't have to do anything.
And quit acting like a victim.
It's annoying.
You wanted to make the school look bad.
So Leila in cheer.
- Evan in rugby.
- The concert.
The question I have is why?
The same reason you started DGM.
When May left, it was obvious
Bannerman was never gonna change
- unless we made it.
- Hey, less with the "we," okay?
There is no "we."
There's us. We're pretty cool.
And then there's you,
who's been terrorizing the school.
Why did you come after me?
You posted the video.
Everyone swapping clothes, supporting Sam.
It made Bannerman look good.
Cool, even.
I hated it.
The way you exposed me,
calling me out like that,
it felt personal.
Was I just collateral damage?
I was angry, so a bit of both.
- [scoffs]
- Don't smile!
You hurt my sister.
Was she collateral damage too?
And Miles, setting him up?
What was that, more of the same?
In the video you used to take down Viola,
what was I?
Collateral damage?
You didn't end up in hospital.
I hate what happened to Leila.
And I know it's just words
but I am sorry.
The thing is
I didn't have anyone to stop me
like Grace stopped you, Clara.
No one was there
to tell me I was going too far
because I was all on my own.
I don't want to do that anymore.
Or be that person.
I want to be like you.
I want to be part of DGM.
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 ♪
Okay, I vote no, never.
What the actual? And can we please
turn her over to the police now?
With what evidence?
The fact that she knew about an inhaler?
Can you stop making
logical points, please?
That seems unfair.
It's one of the main things
Grace knows how to do.
[chuckles] I also know how to weigh
things up from every angle,
so give me a sec while I do that.
Okay. We don't have one solid piece
of evidence to just hand over and say,
"There you go,
proved it beyond all doubt."
So the question is
how do we get that solid thing?
Okay, you're in, but you're on probation.
You won't regret it, I promise.
The question is, can you play nice?
I can and I will.
So when do you want to start?
It's kind of late, so tomorrow?
See you tomorrow, then.
What are you doing?
You said all we need is one
solid piece of evidence.
Just cut a bit for me. Thanks.
And that's how you get it.
You know, Rumes, watching you do that,
- best kind of weirdo.
- [chuckles]
[engine starts]
Oh, I love you like a gun ♪
The mouse has left the house.
Go, cats, go!
Why are we cats now?
Because she's a mouse. Go with it.
Okay, I guess.
A little bit of me ♪
Time to test Rumi's fingerprinting skills.
Keep moving on ♪
- [Grace] It worked!
- I'm in!
Yes! My status
as criminal mastermind is confirmed.
Hey, Bonnie.
Do you remember me?
You like cheese, right?
With my name on and I ♪
There's a bullet with my name on ♪
Love you like a gun ♪
Okay, so we need one solid thing
tying Mouse to what she's done.
But two would be better.
Don't lean, don't lean, don't lean
Just part of a well ♪
Dance to the beat
Of the serpent stones ♪
Abort mission, felines.
The mouse is back!
[Mouse] Just need my science homework.
Quick, we have to get out.
Hurry up! I'm going to be late for work.
Til it all goes black ♪
And if it never comes
Just keep dancing to the drum ♪
Oh, you love me like a rattle snake ♪
So, DGM next move? We're agreed?
But remember to play nice.
I smell of bin!
I can fix that.
Did it work?
Now you smell of vanilla and bin.
Like a vanilla-bin combo.
[all laugh]
Of course I see her now.
- You smell weird.
- Like vanilla?
Hey, can you slow down a bit?
Or stop, even?
No, I'm not letting
your cute eyes throw me off.
Yesterday sucked.
My first performance at Bannerman
was just completely ruined and
Why did you cancel on me, Rumi?
Such an illuminating answer.
I never know what's going on with you.
I hate that.
Mouse. Over here.
Great. Let's make this
a group-hang situation.
- Really?
- No, I'm out of here.
What went wrong between you two?
You can tell me.
- We're friends now.
- We're more like co-workers.
I just
It's to do with your post
about me in ballet school.
You thought she posted it?
- And now you don't trust her.
- Not me.
Clara and Grace.
Do you always go along
with what they think?
I I didn't call you over for that. Um
We've got a DGM meeting at lunch.
Green pavilion.
- Can you make it?
- Yeah, cool. I'll be there.
[Grace] Hey, can I see that badge?
Vote Miles.
Do you want to tell me what this is about?
Because you know I'm not fake.
This is about me getting in there first.
I thought about it, Grace.
Why you go poking around in my bedroom,
making small talk with my tutor.
You're trying to get in there first,
use it against me to win.
I would never use dodgy tactics to win.
So why were you doing those things?
You act like you care about people.
- Truth is you just care about yourself.
- No, Miles, you know the truth
- and you know me.
- Yeah, no, I did know you,
but this girl who sneaks around and lies,
she's a stranger to me.
- Yeah, yeah, that works. Yep.
- [knock on door]
So, what am I doing here again?
Well, it's good news. It's very good news.
Then why is she acting weird?
- Because you're not going to like it.
- Come on, Leila.
You know your sister's a team player.
She'll be happy for you. Right, Clara?
So, Leila saw her physio this morning
and she's been given
the go-ahead to cheer,
- which means
- She's point flyer at regionals tomorrow.
[sighs] Look,
Leila was point flyer before the accident,
and it's her last year. You know that.
This is the bit where you get to show
how happy you are for me.
Yeah, I got that.
Congrats, Leila.
Good call, coach. Go, team. Yay.
Are we done here?
See you later at practice, yeah?
I just
I need to know.
Did I let you down?
Uh No, of course not.
It's just about what's right for the team.
Honestly, it's not personal.
It feels pretty personal.
It feels like no matter how hard I work,
Leila comes first.
It feels like no matter
how much of a good daughter I am,
Leila comes first.
I wasn't just second born.
I'm a second thought.
No, Clara
[door closes]
[door opens]
- Hey.
- Hey.
I saw Rumi earlier.
So you know we're meeting at lunch?
Yeah, I'll be there.
Rumi seemed
I don't know, upset.
Normally she's so happy,
like life is a walk in the park for her.
She's had a lot going on.
So have you.
It's the regional competition tomorrow.
That is a lot of pressure.
Aren't you flyer?
No, I'm not.
Is staring at it helping?
Not at all.
It wouldn't even be as bad
if I didn't like his choice of font.
Still, he's not getting my vote.
You're not fake.
You don't know me that well.
I feel like I do.
It's strange, but
when I'm around you,
it's like I've always known you.
You should probably see
someone about that.
You know, like overfamiliar issues
or something.
- Yeah, there's probably a self-help book.
- Yeah, get reading. [chuckles]
Also, the last time a guy friend tried
to compliment me, it ended like that, so
Does that mean
it's a bad time to ask you out?
Kind of terrible.
New low for me, timing-wise. [chuckles]
- Hey, did you hear about the
- Meeting?
Yeah, I was heading over now,
if you want to walk together.
Yeah, sure.
You don't seem fake,
but I'm guessing, with DGM,
you've had to lie quite a bit.
Yeah, a bit.
Hey, can I meet you there?
I've got
some science homework to hand in.
[lock clicks]
There's nothing!
Don't stress.
It's the cellar
that we really want to check out.
[Rumi] This is interesting, though.
Yeah, interesting, but not evidence.

- [Grace] "Don't get mad."

Into the flames ♪
You took your turn ♪
All of this and for what?
Why are we even trying so hard?
Leila's flyer again
and that decision took my dad
all of two seconds to make.
And Leila's fine.
But me
You're going to be fine too, I swear.
You don't need cheer,
like I don't need ballet.
Don't put us in the same category.
You walked away from something.
I was pushed.
I know it's different. I just
I still think you'll be okay.
Because you always think
everything will be okay!
You're like, "Hey, I'm Rumi."
"I skip through life like it's
some sort of summer meadow."
And what's wrong with that?
With being happy?
Do you want me
to push that part of me down?
- Apologize for being myself?
- No.
But apologize for lying to us.
Lying to me.
You said you understood.
I tried.
But how could you tell Jess something,
a girl you've known for five minutes,
something you couldn't tell me,
someone you've known
since baby grows were in?
I messed things up
with Jess because of you!
Because of both of you!
- Hey, don't drag me into this.
- Why not?
You both made me
feel stupid for trusting her,
and making someone
feel like that is a low move.
So is lying.
We've all lied at this point, all right?
- We don't get to judge each other for it.
- There's a difference, and you know it.
Do I?
Because with DGM,
I have snuck around and lied
more than I have in my entire life.
But we don't lie to each other.
Why? Because we're friends?
Miles was my friend before this.
Honestly, I think he's got a point.
I think he's right.
I'm fake.
But I never used to be.
So you hate yourself for lying?
And I hate myself
for putting so much into all of this.
And I hate you both
for making me cynical.
We're done here, right?
We're done.
[Rumi sniffles]
[indistinct chatter]
Okay, uh, let's get this started. Um
Question one.
What steps would you take
to improve the school?
Uh, Miles?
Politicians are fake, aren't they?
And trust me,
Grace Ellington is a politician.
Vote for me and, sure, I might not be
the most serious candidate, but
- at least you'll get what you see.
- [cheering]
That had nothing to do
with improving the school.
Uh, Grace, you're entitled to a rebuttal.
When I started this campaign,
I thought that if I had stayed strong
and fought for what was right
that I could make a difference.
But Bannerman doesn't change.
No, it just changes
those of us within its walls.
It makes people angry and lash out.
People lose their trust.
And they lose their faith.
What Bannerman does
is break everyone and everything.
Including me.
I'm out.
They're distant and they're going down ♪
Nothing but a pain ♪
[whistle blows]
Five more minutes, then into stunt groups.
I want a lot of energy, okay?
It's a big day tomorrow.
Hey, coach, are we're finally going
to show 'em what we're made of?
- Yes, we are, Sam! Yes, we are!
- [cheering]
So what do you think?
Do you want to swap bedrooms?
I thought you needed the bigger room
'cause you have more clothes.
I mean, well, that is true,
but you have the back window
and you don't even sneak out
so it's kind of a waste, really.
[Clara] You don't have to do this.
[Leila] I'm not doing anything. I'm just
bored of my living situation. That's all.
I don't want the room, but thanks.
[police radio chatter]
Sorry about this, Coach Harris.
Sorry about what? What's going on?
There's been an anonymous report
that you have performance-enhancing drugs
in your office.
This is some sort of prank, right?
Don't worry.
It's just a misunderstanding.
[Grace] What happens now?
[Leila] I wish I knew.
[Sam] Don't stress.
They're just taking him for questioning.
Come on, let's get out of here.
Guess I'm not welcome in DGM now.
Wait. I never was.
