Official Synopsis

"Go behind the scenes and see The Holograms and The Misfts from a whole new perspective... that of music columnist Rio Pacheco! What mysteries will he uncover? What truths will he reveal? Or will it mostly just be Pizzazz flipping tables and Roxy crying over ruined bagels?"


Jem 10 Stormer Rio Rio and Stormer are at the hospital after Pizzazz's car accident. Rio was the one who found Pizzazz's crashed car. Stormer asks Rio to go and tell Roxy and Jetta about the accident, because they're not answering their phones. Rio tells her he knows where they live, because he's been there before.
In a flashback, Rio visits Roxy's house to ask for an interview. She agrees, because it's the quickest way to get him to leave her alone - and invites him in. While interviewing her, Jetta comes home, and Rio finds out that Roxy and Jetta are roommates - but they beg him not to tell Pizzazz. Jem 10 Roxy Interview
Jem 10 Rio Score In the present day, Rio is on Roxy's doorstep again. He tells Roxy about the accident, and both Roxy and Jetta immediately run out of the house to the hospital. Rio gets a phone call from Rob, his boss. Rob is pushing him to get the exclusive scoop on Pizzazz's accident, but Rio feels uncomfortable capitalizing on their trauma for entertainment. Rob threatens to fire him if he refuses to do it.
He goes to The Holograms' house. The Holograms find out from Rio and Elise that The Holograms are going to be the openers for The Misfits' West Coast tour. Elise also tells Jerrica that Pizzazz has a fractured larynx. Rio asks them if he can do an interview with The Holograms, so that he can make them the bulk of the interview, so that he doesn't have to focus his piece on Pizzazz's accident in what should be a private moment. They agree to do it. Jem 10 Rio Holograms

Rio goes back to the hospital, and goes to Pizzazz's room. Stormer, Roxy and Jetta are all at her bedside, and they've smuggled in Pizzazz's cat. Pizzazz is smiling.
