Beckanne and Katie go get coffee for their girl time. Katie says her contract from Idaho is in the mail. Their conversation is super obvious and entirely unlike any conversation real people have ever had, in that one dancer uses the phrase "In the dance world" when addressing another dancer. You know how I'm always emailing my editor all, "Angel, as you know in the recapping world, we write snarky things about what happened on television shows and sometimes it is SO HARD to come up with more jokes that aren't about how Ronald looks like a low-rent Robert Pattinson when all you want to do is drink beer while sprawled in front of the window air conditioner!" Beckanne revisits her concerns from earlier in the season of how she doesn't have any other friends, boo hoo. The girls plan a big going-away party for Katie, at which Katie wants only fun, no crying. Better make sure Ronald gets that memo. He looks like the weepy type.
At the theater, Rex and Allison are stretching side by side. She's fiddling with her phone and pointedly ignoring him. He says he's prepared to find peace outside his relationship with Allison and I swear I will give five dollars to the first person who grabs him by his big gorgeous shoulders and shakes him and screams "YOU DON'T HAVE A RELATIONSHIP, DUMMY, YOU HAVE A HOSTAGE SITUATION." GOD.
Katie comes to the theater to clean out her locker. She says it's hard for her to stay positive, having to pack up and leave her friends, after spending three years trying to impress Adam. Sure, this is sad for Katie, but it would be a lot more affecting if we'd seen more than two minutes of her since the first episode. She and Ronald have really gotten shoved to the side in favor of the Rex & Allison Masochism Hour.
Montage of the later performances, intercut with rehearsals and the dancers trying to nap and eat and just maintain their bodies during the run of the shows. The dancers are all weary and rundown and giving 110 percent and other clichés as well. There's more on the injured dancer Beckanne is filling in for. It's all very intense.
