Episode Overview

Tara practices dancing in the studio behind a bar. Christian and some friends get arrested. Christian is told that it will be months until he goes to court, and that he can be released to his parents. However, Christian's mom is dead, and his father abandoned him. When he calls his brother, he does not pick up. Mr. Kennedy explains to Christian that he can stay at the Academy under bail conditions. Tara wants to move in with Kat, but Abigail refuses to sign the room swap form. Determined to make Abigail change her mind, Kat sets about playing practical jokes on her until she relents. Meanwhile, Tara's crush on Ethan is growing more intense every day, but she discovers Kat won't tolerate friends dating her brother. Sammy is concerned that Tara's crush will ruin their friendship and tries to help her realise this by writing a pros and cons list about Ethan... But all it does is make Tara more convinced of her feelings for him. As the roommate war escalates, Abigail wins a decisive victory — emailing Tara's list to the whole school Ethan isn't the only boy complicating Tara's life. Christian, who Tara clashed with during auditions, has arrived at the Academy and seems determined to antagonise her. However, Christian is preoccupied with a secret of his own - he was arrested by the police after committing a robbery, and is forced to stay at the Academy as part of his bail conditions.
