Season 2, Episode 25
"The Second" is the twenty-fifth episode of season two of the Australian television series, Dance Academy. It aired on March 6, 2012 on ABC3. This episode was written by Samantha Strauss.
After the second-year students attend Sammy’s funeral, Miss Raine announces that the Prix de Fonteyn will be delayed for a week, that the production of Peter Pan is cancelled, and that absences will be excused. Abigail, however, throws herself back into training for a new production, while the others begin to plan a “memorial” to grieve and allow a better chance for closure, as everyone vividly remembers how they met Sammy—Miss Raine, who recognised him from not getting through initial auditions for the Academy; Kat, who helped him forge his dad’s signature; and Christian, who met him while breakdancing. Christian fights with Kat, who wants to look at Sammy’s laptop to play a song at the memorial, and also with Ollie, over Sammy’s cardigan. Tara pulls out from the Prix, while Abigail breaks down during auditions for the production. The gang finally have a memorial on the beach and Ethan returns to join them. Christian reads a eulogy, as well as a list Sammy wrote of the top 50 things he wanted to achieve, with the first being to make a group of close friends he could have for the rest of his life. The group stays all night at the beach, then in the morning, dance and play with each other in the water to remember Sammy.
