Hey, it's Shari!

0:00:030:00:05

And...I'm still in shock from seeing Chloe in full plasma elf make-up

0:00:050:00:10

at that role-play thing after Syd's magic beans or whatever got stolen.

0:00:100:00:14

So, Chloe's back to being the number-one suspect,

0:00:140:00:18

which, by the way, I totally called the minute my Dixi got hacked,

0:00:180:00:22

but she ran off like Harry Styles was outside looking for a prom date,

0:00:220:00:26

and since then, no-one's seen her.

0:00:260:00:28

Well, someone probably has,

0:00:280:00:30

but there have been no new posts from the Lady Akhali account,

0:00:300:00:33

and ever since Friday, Chloe's been all 404.

0:00:330:00:37

I did make this incident page thing, which is pretty cool.

0:00:380:00:42

I need to bring in more people for questioning,

0:00:420:00:44

cos I can't see how this all fits together.

0:00:440:00:46

So, Chloe might have hacked Syd's game,

0:00:460:00:48

but she's also followed everywhere by Me Too Mimi,

0:00:480:00:51

who said she got hacked, till it turned out she did it herself,

0:00:510:00:54

but she just wanted a New Space invitation from Zane,

0:00:540:00:57

but then he's got hacked too, so it can't have been him,

0:00:570:00:59

which I never thought it was anyway.

0:00:590:01:01

Are those the eyes of a hacker?

0:01:020:01:04

Not that he had any problem thinking I'd get it just for vlog lols.

0:01:050:01:08

Not that I care what he thinks.

0:01:080:01:09

The point is now no-one's speaking to me.

0:01:090:01:12

DIAL TONE Oh, except Eve.

0:01:120:01:14

Eve!

0:01:140:01:15

Where have you been?

0:01:150:01:16

I've been texting you all weekend.

0:01:160:01:17

Yeah, I just got all 89 of them.

0:01:170:01:20

My phone died while I was at my dad's.

0:01:200:01:22

-Well, that's no excuse. I was worried.

-Sorry.

0:01:220:01:25

I forgot that in your world, anyone who doesn't

0:01:250:01:27

post where they are 12 times a day

0:01:270:01:29

has obviously been kidnapped by aliens.

0:01:290:01:31

-Good one.

-Yeah, I liked it.

0:01:310:01:33

So, what's up?

0:01:330:01:34

I've been following a new lead.

0:01:340:01:36

Chloe's...a secret gamer!

0:01:360:01:39

No...M...D.

0:01:390:01:41

I know!

0:01:410:01:42

So, I'm going to dig deeper and message Murdo.

0:01:420:01:45

What? Why?

0:01:450:01:46

Well, cos Syd won't help me and he still blames me

0:01:460:01:49

for his pretend swords being attacked.

0:01:490:01:50

No, I mean, why are you messaging Murdo?

0:01:500:01:53

Oh, because he's all techy.

0:01:530:01:54

He's got all the stuff on his page about

0:01:540:01:56

building computers and installing software.

0:01:560:01:58

The whole reason I started learning about programming and antivirus

0:01:580:02:01

software was because my little brother used my computer once.

0:02:010:02:04

Feels like a bit of a stretch.

0:02:040:02:06

All right, Sarah Jane, what's your idea?

0:02:060:02:09

Give up. Forget about it.

0:02:090:02:11

Move on with your life.

0:02:110:02:12

My life is on my Dixi page,

0:02:120:02:15

so not an option.

0:02:150:02:16

-I'm messaging Murdo.

-OK, whatever.

0:02:160:02:19

But make sure he knows it's about Dixi

0:02:190:02:21

otherwise he'll think it's a date.

0:02:210:02:23

It's not a date.

0:02:230:02:24

Of course not, but he might think it is,

0:02:240:02:26

so best just make it clear.

0:02:260:02:28

Why would he think it was a date?

0:02:280:02:30

I don't know, cos he's a boy and boys are stupid

0:02:300:02:32

and there's an even more stupid prom next week,

0:02:320:02:34

and I know he's not going with anyone.

0:02:340:02:36

Wait, do you want him to think it's a date?

0:02:360:02:38

No!

0:02:380:02:39

I thought you liked Zane.

0:02:390:02:41

Don't know where you're getting that from!

0:02:410:02:44

Anyway, it doesn't matter,

0:02:440:02:45

cos Zane's not even talking to me, cos he thinks

0:02:450:02:47

I'm some hidden camera drama queen.

0:02:470:02:49

Look, all I've said to Murdo is,

0:02:490:02:51

"Hey, do you want to meet at the cafe after school?

0:02:510:02:54

"I need to ask you something."

0:02:540:02:56

That doesn't sound anything like a date.

0:02:560:02:58

Sounds a little bit like a date.

0:02:580:03:01

No, it doesn't.

0:03:010:03:02

Oh, he's already replied.

0:03:020:03:04

What does he say?

0:03:040:03:05

"Cool, see you there."

0:03:050:03:08

"It's a date."

0:03:080:03:09

You're right, ApatiteLazyDog,

0:03:130:03:15

now I have two people who don't like me for the price of one.

0:03:150:03:19

Well, I'm about to dig deeper and question Murdo.

0:03:190:03:22

Hey, it's Shari.

0:03:230:03:24

I'm at the cafe, and Murdo will be here any minute.

0:03:240:03:26

Not for a date. It's not a date!

0:03:260:03:28

I'll let him down gently and then ask him

0:03:280:03:30

what he knows about what Chloe hacking Syd's game.

0:03:300:03:33

-Hey, Shari.

-Hey, Murdo.

0:03:330:03:35

This isn't part of that thing Zane was talking about, is it?

0:03:360:03:38

About you setting people up for some Dixi vlog prank?

0:03:380:03:41

Zane has got completely the wrong idea.

0:03:410:03:43

I just need to ask you something, but I couldn't do it at school.

0:03:430:03:45

That's OK. I think I know what this is about.

0:03:450:03:47

Great.

0:03:470:03:49

-It's about the prom, isn't it?

-What?

0:03:490:03:50

You wanted to ask me to go to the prom with you?

0:03:500:03:52

No. Why would you think that?

0:03:520:03:54

Cos in Citizenship,

0:03:540:03:56

you said how it was sexist that boys have to ask out girls.

0:03:560:03:58

Well, that is true, but no offence, why would I ask you to the prom?

0:03:580:04:02

Cos you said it was something you couldn't ask me in school,

0:04:020:04:04

-and you're acting all awkward.

-Er, I am now,

0:04:040:04:06

but just to be clear, I'm not asking you to the prom,

0:04:060:04:09

-and this is not a date.

-Oh, good.

0:04:090:04:12

I was worried you'd got the wrong idea.

0:04:120:04:14

-I don't have the wrong idea. You have the wrong idea.

-No, I don't.

0:04:140:04:18

When I asked you to meet me, you said, "It's a date."

0:04:180:04:21

That's just an expression.

0:04:210:04:23

Thank you. You know, that's what I said, but then Eve was all like,

0:04:230:04:26

"Ohh, he thinks it's a date."

0:04:260:04:27

-Wait, what's this got to do with Eve?

-Nothing.

0:04:270:04:29

-It's about Chloe.

-Does Chloe want to ask me to the prom?

0:04:290:04:32

No-one wants you ask you to the prom!

0:04:320:04:35

How are we doing over here? Aw, you're all shy cos you're on a date?

0:04:350:04:38

BOTH: It's not a date!

0:04:380:04:40

I'll just give you a minute.

0:04:400:04:41

I found out that Chloe's a gamer.

0:04:410:04:44

-Lady Akhali, yeah, she's wicked. Top plasma elf.

-Right.

0:04:440:04:48

Wait, how do you know? I thought this was like a massive secret.

0:04:480:04:50

Tell me about it.

0:04:500:04:51

I installed a new graphics card in her laptop, but she said that

0:04:510:04:54

if I told anyone about her gaming, she'd seriously damage my HP.

0:04:540:04:58

See, it's all coming together.

0:04:580:04:59

You know all the hacking that's been happening?

0:04:590:05:01

Someone also hacked my brother's game. If that was Chloe...

0:05:010:05:04

Nah, but it wasn't. That was Zane.

0:05:040:05:06

He was annoyed at Syd, because, well, because of you, really,

0:05:060:05:10

but he was just trolling him. He's given the stuff back now.

0:05:100:05:13

-How do you know?

-I sit behind him in Geography.

0:05:130:05:15

Your brother was all, "Give me my sword back!"

0:05:150:05:17

And Zane was all like, "You mad, bro?"

0:05:170:05:19

and they went on like that for ages, but now they're cool.

0:05:190:05:22

Anyway...

0:05:220:05:23

Speaking of swords, I've got to go. My fencing class starts in a bit.

0:05:230:05:28

But good luck with your...

0:05:280:05:31

Whatever this is.

0:05:310:05:32

Hi, Eve!

0:05:350:05:36

You know, he is obsessed with thinking people

0:05:390:05:42

want to ask him to the prom.

0:05:420:05:43

You know he actually tried to make out like I wanted to?

0:05:430:05:46

Even though it's obvious he's the one that's desperate for a date.

0:05:460:05:49

-I didn't think he was that into it.

-He was.

0:05:490:05:51

But it sounds like your Chloe gaming idea is a dead end,

0:05:530:05:58

unless Murdo did it as part of some plot to get you to ask him to prom.

0:05:580:06:04

OMD, that's it!

0:06:040:06:06

First me, then Chloe,

0:06:060:06:08

and he mentioned us both wanting to go to the prom with him.

0:06:080:06:11

-I was joking.

-No, it all fits, you know?

0:06:110:06:14

Like when boys pull your hair in primary school?

0:06:140:06:17

They show you they like you by being mean.

0:06:170:06:20

But I've got an idea.

0:06:200:06:21

We are going to fight fire...with fire!

0:06:210:06:25

Shari, I don't think you should do anything involving fire.

0:06:250:06:28

It's time to go nuclear!

0:06:280:06:30

-We are going to hit him...

-Shari!

-..on his page!

0:06:300:06:34

Oh...

0:06:350:06:36

That's right, OrangeChattyApricot it's all starting to fit.

0:06:400:06:44

Er, and sorry, IndigoSnowyGirl,

0:06:440:06:46

but I think I'd know if my bestie fancied someone.

0:06:460:06:49

And especially my prime suspect.

0:06:490:06:51

-Hey, it's Shari, and I was totally right. It was Murdo all along.

-What?

0:06:510:06:57

-What's he said?

-Nothing. Nada.

0:06:570:07:00

And I posted all over his Dixi page last night,

0:07:000:07:02

and he hasn't even denied it. He still hasn't posted anything.

0:07:020:07:06

-Check your phone.

-That doesn't mean he's guilty.

0:07:060:07:08

He probably just hasn't checked Dixi yet.

0:07:080:07:10

Some of us aren't obsessively on there 24-7.

0:07:100:07:14

OK, then let me present to you Exhibit D. Look around, Eve.

0:07:140:07:19

No, Murdo. He knows he's been found out, and he's lying low.

0:07:190:07:23

Why else wouldn't he be here?

0:07:230:07:24

"Go hang under a bridge with the other trolls." And this bit.

0:07:240:07:28

And I can't believe you said that. Shari, this is a bit full-on.

0:07:280:07:31

Yeah, cos it has to be. He'll only crack under pressure,

0:07:310:07:34

and the sooner he owns up,

0:07:340:07:35

the sooner everyone will see that I'm innocent,

0:07:350:07:38

and I can stop being a complete social leper.

0:07:380:07:40

Don't forget, you're the only person on this bus who's

0:07:400:07:42

still actually speaking to me.

0:07:420:07:44

-It's not that bad.

-Oh, really? SHARI CLEARS THROAT

0:07:440:07:46

Hey, Zane!

0:07:460:07:47

So, Zane's still a little bit mad.

0:07:480:07:51

Hi, Isla.

0:07:510:07:52

-Eve, can you tell Shari I'm not speaking to her?

-OK, yes, fine.

0:07:530:07:57

Isla isn't talking to you either.

0:07:570:07:59

And tell her that her weird Dixi obsession almost broke

0:07:590:08:02

the bond of our band.

0:08:020:08:04

Oh, Eve, can you tell her too that music is my life, so I can't have...

0:08:040:08:08

Isla, she's right there!

0:08:080:08:10

Yeah, but I'm not speaking to her!

0:08:100:08:12

Can't you take a message?

0:08:120:08:13

Isla, I'm so sorry I broke the band bond or whatever,

0:08:130:08:18

but I'm innocent, and I can prove it.

0:08:180:08:19

Zane got that message about hacker stuff,

0:08:190:08:21

and Murdo is a total geek with computers.

0:08:210:08:24

He like builds them and everything. It was totally him.

0:08:240:08:27

Not speaking means not listening, Shari!

0:08:270:08:29

Look, I know she's bonkers, and completely obsessed with Dixi

0:08:290:08:33

-and she does that weird owl thing with her face sometimes...

-Hey!

0:08:330:08:37

..but...that's why we love her, right? Right?

0:08:370:08:41

Er, by the way, Shari, I just wanted to say that

0:08:410:08:43

I'm not talking to you either.

0:08:430:08:45

Oh, right, yeah, OK, I'll try to survive.

0:08:450:08:47

Hey, is that a Lady Akhali badge?

0:08:470:08:50

From Syd's Orcs and Dorks game?

0:08:500:08:53

Mimi, since when have you been into gaming?

0:08:530:08:55

Since forever. I love gaming.

0:08:550:08:57

I've always been a massive plastic elf like Chloe,

0:08:570:09:00

but I didn't want to say anything until she updated her profile.

0:09:000:09:02

Listen up, noobs.

0:09:020:09:04

Today we fight, not for XP, not for gold, but for honour.

0:09:040:09:08

Eve, do you want a badge too?

0:09:080:09:10

Or...or I've got key rings on special offer? Beat the lunchtime rush?

0:09:100:09:13

Oh, I'll buy one!

0:09:130:09:15

Yeah... I reserve the right to refuse service to certain customers.

0:09:160:09:20

He hates me. Why, why did I have to suspect the only cute guy in school?

0:09:210:09:26

-He's not the only cute guy.

-You know, this is so typical.

0:09:260:09:29

If anyone else came out as a secret gamer, they would

0:09:290:09:32

get sent straight to Loserville.

0:09:320:09:34

"Do not pass go. Do not collect £200."

0:09:340:09:37

Chloe does it, and everyone's falling over themselves to buy gnome hats,

0:09:370:09:40

but I try to bring down a ruthless cyber killer,

0:09:400:09:44

risking everything for truth and justice, and I get social death!

0:09:440:09:47

She actually made elves cool. It's like black magic.

0:09:470:09:51

I need to clear my name. Has Murdo updated yet?

0:09:510:09:54

Oh, no!

0:09:550:09:57

What if this is all part of his strategy to take me to prom?

0:09:570:10:00

Maybe he thinks we're flirting. Maybe I should write something meaner.

0:10:000:10:05

I'm pretty sure this is not romantic.

0:10:050:10:08

-He's just flagged your posts as abusive.

-Abusive? Aha!

0:10:080:10:12

-I don't see how this is a good thing.

-No, this is perfect.

0:10:120:10:16

This means he's running scared.

0:10:160:10:18

We've got him.

0:10:180:10:19

He must be at registration.

0:10:190:10:21

-Oh, look, Murdo!

-Isn't that his dad?

-He's handing himself in, I knew it!

0:10:220:10:27

Shari Doyle!

0:10:270:10:29

Both of you, my office now!

0:10:290:10:31

And I'll take that.

0:10:310:10:32

Listen up, noobs.

0:10:380:10:40

Today we fight, not for XP, not for gold, but for honour.

0:10:400:10:44

Come at me if you dare. Lady Akhali will greet you with sword and steel.

0:10:440:10:47

When the elf blood rises, all others will bow down before us.

0:10:470:10:51

SOUNDS OF BATTLE

0:10:510:10:53

Mystery drama series. Having discovered a link between the Dixi murders and online gaming, Shari enlists the help of computer whizz Murdo, but she soon begins to suspect him too.
