Official synopsis

Jem and The Holograms do their first live show at the Starlight Foundation’s annual fundraiser - but a rabid Misfits fan is determined to sabotage their performance... at any cost!


Kimber and Stormer are on a second date at a bookstore coffee shop, but Stormer tells Kimber that they can't see each other again because of how much drama it would cause with the Misfits. She leaves the bookshop, but Kimber chases after her, and they kiss.

Pizzazz, Jetta and Roxy are backstage getting ready for an interview and performance on "Superlate with Rick Tenenbaum". They are annoyed because Stormer is late. She rushes in, and the Misfits chastise her for breaking rules again. Pizzazz threatens that if she doesn't get in line, she's out of the band. She joins the rest of the band in performing Attack the Night. After the performance, Rick Tenenbaum asks Pizzazz an interview question about Jem and the Holograms. Pizzazz bursts into another rage, screaming.

At the venue, they are having audio problems at the sound check, and they're worried that Kimber isn't there. Rio arrives, and Jerrica introduces him to Shana, and he goes to fetch them all coffee. Rio meets Jem, mistaking her voice for Jerrica's, and they have an awkward conversation.

Kimber runs towards the venue for the Starlight Foundation concert, but crashes into Clash, who is in disguise as a waitress. When knocking her over, Clash drops her bag and her bolt cutters, wrench, and other tools fall out.

Jem and The Holograms perform:

The ability to set yourself free
To totally just be
To live it, you gotta give it, girl
Give it all, don't be small,
Anything less than all
You're just looking to fall-

Just then, there is a loud noise. Clash, watching from the catwalks above, has used bolt cutters to cut the wire holding a very large lighting rig suspended above the stage. It falls, heading towards Jem's head.
