The Hellcats are facing some issues after Lancer pulls their funding for regionals because of the woman’s volleyball team. They have two options - go step by step through each competition or submit a video bid to the national organization and get funding from them. Marti asks why they haven’t already submitted a video and Alice explains it is because Marti is to inexperienced. Alice is determined to get back to her spot on the squad and seeks out the quarterback of the football team to get pills that will help with her injury.
On the school front, Marti deals with a new professor, Julian Parish. He is putting together a team to help him with a case he is working and encourages his students to sign up. He tells Marti not to waste her time because he needs a student who is focused, not just a cheerleader. She asks for a chance and in return, he assigns her a private assignment about an imaginary case. Once Marti realizes, she works with a classmate named Morgan to come up with their response to the assignment. Doing so earns both her and Morgan a spot with Professor Parish’s team.
