In the bookstore coffee shop, Stormer is struggling to write the song The Truth In Me. She gives up and leaves a voicemail on someone's phone. Stormer had told Kimber that she would be at the bookstore all day if she wanted to see her, but Kimber never arrived.

Jem 07 Application At their home, Jerrica finds out that Rio has written a glowing review of The Misfits' concert. Rio visits, and he apologises for hurting her. He tells her that while he doesn't particularly like The Misfits, they are a good band and that they deserved an honest review, regardless of his feelings for Jerrica. He reveals that he's been asked to write a feature piece about Jem. Meanwhile - Shana submits an online application for a fashion internship in Milan, Italy.
At 5x5 Records, The Misfits are being reprimanded by Elise Harcourt for their unprofessional behaviour at the Vs! Battle Competition, which lead to a lot of bad publicity for the band, because they were upstaged by Jem and The Holograms. Elise tells them that the record company have hired them a manager - Eric Raymond. After Elise leaves, Eric reveals his plan - to make The Misfits back into a successful band, but in doing so, take down Jem and The Holograms. His plan immediately gains Pizzazz's approval. Eric asks Techrat to hack Jem and The Holograms to try and gain information about them. Jem 07 Eric
