Read our recap below:
Bay (Vanessa Marano) struggles after her accident and without the use of her hand. Following her visit with the doctor in last week’s episode, she wonders if her future as an artist may be over. When her teacher tells her to stop making excuses for not being able to complete her assignments, Bay is forced to come up with a different solution to her problem. If she can’t draw or paint, how can she create art?
With Emmett’s help, apparently. Emmett (Sean Berdy) takes her to a prop town set of Las Vegas a man built for his wife to help her remember her time in Sin City. Bay uses Emmett’s photography skills, following a dream dance sequence, to create a memory for her teacher. I felt like the build up for this whole plot was great but in the end, it didn’t really pay off. Emmett created the project, not Bay. I’m curious how it’s going to develop.
The dance scenes in this episode are weird and mostly dreams. I mean, why else would Bay be in a showgirls costume and why else would Kathryn (Lea Thompson) suddenly be in a can-can lineup with Enzo (Alec Mapa)? I do, however, appreciate that Tank can line dance in a cowboy hat.
Travis’ plot this episode, is actually related to dance and makes sense. Travis (Ryan Lane) worries that there are too many things that he and Mary Beth can’t do together. Wanting to impress her so she doesn’t leave him, Travis offers to go to the formal dance with her. There’s only one problem: He really can’t dance.
Travis goes to Toby (Lucas Grabeel) for help but let’s be real, High School Musical won’t help us here. We need Dancing With The Stars! Or, in this case, we need Angelo (Gilles Marini). Angelo gives lessons to the boys with the help of Melody (Marlee Matlin) and dang, they know how to move! I think this was my favorite part of the episode. For all you High School Musical fans out there: don’t worry. We get a nice shot of Toby dancing in his underwear to “Wild Thing”. Why not “Old Time Rock N’ Roll”?
Following the intense events last week that had Daphne (Katie LeClerc) saving the life of the head doctor on staff, she considers becoming pre-med. She asks Jorge for more responsibilities around the clinic but he’s less than impressed that she thinks it’s heroic to bring a dangerous woman around. Daphne can’t catch a break. When Jorge apologizes and attempts to have Daphne help with a patient, things quickly go wrong. A young boy has a seizure and Daphne, who has her back turned, can’t hear what’s happening. Daphne’s concerns manifest themselves in a dream dance sequence with both Jorge and Campbell (RJ Mitte).
John (D.W. Moffett) focuses his efforts this week on winning Kathryn back. If adventure is what she wants, then adventure is what she’ll get. His first attempt is kind of weak. The standard “Oh, I’ll buy her some jewelry and everything will be fixed.” John is so unoriginal that he buys her the same bracelet he gave her years ago. Angry at the situation, John blames Enzo for coming into their lives. Enzo angrily retorts that John is the one that needs to change.
Finally accepting this, John arranges for the entire family to meet for a fancy dinner. Kathryn sits at the table and boom! Surprise Kennish-Vasquez flashdance in Kathryn’s honor. All arranged by John. Yay! Does this mean they’re going to work it out?
