Episode Overview

Rehearsals for The Nutcracker are underway and Tara has been thrown into the deep end. Her excitement over performing the lead role of Clara soon turns to apprehension then devastation, as her rehearsals get progressively worse. Understudy Abigail is learning the choreography faster than Tara and she uses ridicule to undermine Tara's confidence. Sammy's confused feelings towards Christian distress him, so he unsuccessfully tries to avoid him. Christian misinterprets Sammy's avoidance as a rejection and confronts him and Sammy is forced to tell Christian how he feels. By refusing to dance in the production, Kat finds herself relegated to the costume department, where she finds an enticing distraction in Myles Kelly, who has returned from his world tour and wants to spend every spare second he can with her. Myles presents Kat with a life changing offer she's not sure how she can refuse.
