-Previously on The Next Step...
-It's not about your dad, is it?
He wants me to come and live with him for a while.
He's just using you, how do you not see it?
I can't watch LaTroy get hurt again. It hurts me too much.
-Sloane, where are you going?
-Out of your life!
-How could she do this to me?
-I've ruined everything.
Ever since James got back,
I feel like my life is spinning out of control.
And I don't know how to make it stop.
Can we talk?
I love you.
I love you too.
That's why I forgive you.
You forgave me when I kissed Beth.
People make mistakes, it's human.
Listen, Riley, I'm willing to work on this
and do whatever it takes to get through it.
It's all so crazy.
I just need to sort through it all.
I completely understand.
I feel the same way.
Could you maybe give me some space today?
I promise to give you space whenever you need.
OK, just call me if you need me.
I can't believe James forgives me for what I did.
Everyone makes mistakes,
but what if kissing Alfie wasn't a mistake?
# We, we are going to show the world
# Everything we're made of
# We're going to tear
# The roof off this place
# Stand up! #
Hey, I got your text. What's up?
I'm feeling things. A lot of things,
and I just need someone to help me sort through all of them.
James is giving me space to sort out my feelings.
And I've been trying, but I think
I need an outside perspective.
Tell me everything.
Well, I don't really want to say anything out loud because I'm
kind of afraid that it makes me a horrible person.
Riley, this is a safe place, you can say anything.
I love James.
But I like Alfie.
Like, I can't stop thinking about him.
How can I be in love with James but still have these feelings for Alfie?
If Riley wants my honest advice,
I'm going to give it to her.
You need to make a choice, and it needs to be the right one.
Otherwise you might regret it for ever.
How do I know that what I'm feeling for Alfie
is real and not just a crush?
You need to spend time with him.
And when you spend time with him,
pay close attention to how he makes you feel.
He obviously gives you that something that you need.
And once you figure that out,
you're one step closer to settling this once and for all.
Wow. That's incredibly good advice.
I know, I'm good.
RILEY LAUGHS OK, so I'll spend time with Alfie.
But what are you going to tell James?
I need to be completely honest with James.
And that includes telling him how I feel about Alfie.
Right now, I'm calling LaTroy.
Since he's gone, we try to talk or text every day.
It great catching up with Amy
because I miss her and I miss everyone else in The Next Step.
-Hey, what's going on?
-Everything is good here.
-Why do you have that look on your face?
My dad has stepped into town to get some supplies, so...
Well, to be honest, I'm feeling kind of lonely
and I just really miss everybody and I just wish I could be there,
you know? I got like a bad case of Fomo.
LaTroy has Fomo. Or Fear Of Missing Out.
He's afraid of being out of the loop here.
I need to do something to show him that everyone misses him too.
Well, I'll call you back in 15 minutes.
-Make sure you pick up.
-All right, sounds good.
I have a plan to help LaTroy feel a lot less lonely.
What are you reading?
Just some poetry.
I have to do a reading at my cousin's wedding on the weekend.
Weddings are my favourite.
Why do you look so down about it?
Well, this wedding is for the side of my family I don't really know.
So basically, I'm going to be in a room with 100 people I've never met.
And I'm going to have to talk to all of them.
Well, what's wrong with that?
You'll get to meet a whole bunch of new people.
Exactly. I'm terrified.
I can dance in front of thousands of people,
but when it comes to talking to strangers, I'm super nervous.
Well, I could help.
I'm an expert at talking to people I don't know.
I've got the gift of gab, and lucky for Skylar, I'm willing to share.
OK. But the wedding is tomorrow.
Well, we better get started.
This is so great.
With Cassie's help, there's a chance
I might not make a complete fool of myself.
OK, LaTroy, here is your first special guest.
Henry! Oh, my gosh, man.
Long time no see.
-I mean, talk. I mean, type.
-Long time no type, for sure.
I'm so happy to see LaTroy.
I miss my tutty buddy, and by that,
I mean my good friend who also enjoys the fine art of tutting.
Dude, you won't believe what has happened.
What's up? Talk to me.
LaTroy and I are so close, it transcends words.
It's like we're best friends all the way down to our fingertips.
Oh, Oh, and...
Are you serious?
You wouldn't want to go there for vacation.
Yeah, but that's not supposed to be on sale this time of year.
But how did it break?
Oh, man. Dude, you got to
listen to this. All right.
-Looks like these two have a lot to catch up on.
I'm going to leave you two alone for a bit.
Please! Oh, my...
I know by the end of today,
LaTroy won't feel like he's missing out on anything.
Are you serious? And then they served chicken pot pie?
Oh, that's beast.
I am not looking forward to this conversation.
What's up, do you want to talk?
OK, so let's talk.
I want to spend time with him.
And then maybe whatever it is between us will just run its course.
And what if it doesn't?
I'm just trying to be honest with you.
Well, thanks for your honesty.
I'm not breaking up with you.
No, I know. No, you do your thing.
And for future reference,
the next time you want to talk to me about these things,
you don't need to call me in. You know, you can text me.
Don't waste my time.
Everything that we've built,
everything that we are...
..she's just throwing it away.
It hurts that I have to put James through this.
But it's the only way that I can know for sure.
-Are you ready?
Since LaTroy can't be at the studio, I'm bringing the studio to him.
Live via satellite.
Michelle wants to show you a piece she's been working on.
My dancing is getting
so much better this year.
And part of that is
because of LaTroy.
It's been great hanging out with my dad
but watching Michelle makes me want to be there dancing.
Oh, man, that was tight.
That was so tight.
OK, we're going to take a brief intermission and we will be back
with your final guest in a few minutes.
-There's still one more person that LaTroy is definitely going to
want to talk to.
I just hope I can convince that person to talk to LaTroy.
There's one simple and easy trick to talking to people you don't know.
It's called the alphabet trick.
I know the alphabet.
Good. That'll make things a lot easier.
Cassie is supposed to be helping me
get over my fear of talking to
strangers, but maybe this
was a bad idea.
I know when I don't know what to say,
I always start with the letter A and work my way down.
For example, have you ever been to Albuquerque?
-Do you like bears?
No. They're scary.
-What about cats?
-OK, I get it.
I don't like cats, but I like dogs.
-Cassie's advice is so great.
I'm already feeling way more comfortable.
Now you try it on me.
-I like apples.
That's my favourite food.
-OK, once you hit a topic of interest,
you can just drop the whole letter thing.
Let's mackintosh away.
OK, I get it.
We've only just started.
If Skylar wants to impress at the wedding,
we need to take this to the next level.
I'm a little nervous right now.
I'm waiting for Sloane and I'm not sure she's going to like what I have
to ask her.
Hey. I got your text. What's up?
I have a huge favour to ask.
-Sure, what is it?
-Well, I was kind of wondering...
I feel like this has something to do with LaTroy.
-Look, whatever it is, I'm not interested.
He's by himself at the farmhouse.
-Wait, why is he by himself?
Did his dad bail already?
I'm mad at LaTroy's dad for taking him away.
But I'm even madder at LaTroy for ditching A Troupe
to go spend time with him.
You've never been down this road with LaTroy before.
I have. Many times,
and I'm tired of seeing him throw his life away for his dad.
You're probably right. But at the end of the day, don't you miss him?
I've got to go.
I wish I could help Sloane and LaTroy get past all this,
but I guess some things just aren't meant to be.
Right now, I'm waiting for Riley.
I'm excited because this is
the first time I'm going to see her since James got back.
-Hey, I'm so happy you asked to meet me here.
Yes, I just wanted to spend some time with you.
And James knows about this?
I told him.
And how did he react?
I wrote a song for you last night.
You wrote a song for me last night?
I was inspired. I just had a feeling that today was going to be special.
# Waterfall, I'm on a raft that takes me to the place that we will
# Go to and you know that I will cherish every moment we have
# Together, yeah
# And every time that you would smile my heart would thump
# And jump so high that I would think that I was having
# A heart attack and fall into your arms... #
When I hear Alfie sing, it's incredible.
It's like nothing matters more to him than me.
# Forever, cos you'll
# You know, you know, you know, you stole my heart away
# I think about you every day... #
Michelle told me to pay attention to my feelings when I'm with Alfie,
and my heart is beating like crazy right now.
That was amazing.
How would you like to go out to dinner tonight, to celebrate?
I don't know, you, me being together.
I don't think going out would be really a good idea.
No, of course. Of course, I understand.
You and James broke up and you need some time to figure things out.
I've been honest with James,
it's only fair that I'm just as honest with Alfie, too.
I'm not really sure if things
between James and I are really completely over.
Alfie, don't go. I was having fun.
I'm glad you were having fun.
This isn't fun for me.
OK, look, I understand you need time to process things and whatnot,
but I have feelings too.
Don't play with my heart.
I never meant to play with Alfie's heart.
I know I have to do what's right for me
but I just wish it didn't mean hurting everyone I care about.
So there's one final test you have to complete.
You can start a conversation with me,
but can you start a conversation with a stranger?
Cassie, don't make me do this.
You have to. No more games. If Skylar wants to
swim with the sharks, she needs to jump in the deep end.
Use what you've learned. You can do this.
OK. Then who should I talk to?
She's scary. Hi.
I would like a conversation.
-I don't have time for this.
-Do you like artichokes?
-Have you ever been to Berlin?
No, I'm kind of busy.
Children. Do you have any children?
Yes, I have a daughter.
What's she like?
Phone all the time.
Whatever it is you do on there, I don't know.
I mean, I'm normally texting, or taking selfies.
I mean, I have apps for dates.
What about cookies? Would you like a cookie?
It was nice talking to you.
That was awesome.
You even got a cookie out of it.
I remember the first time I talked to somebody I didn't know,
they gave me a blender.
Cassie's methods really work.
This wedding is going to be a piece of cake
so long as I remember my ABCs.
So, who's my special guest?
I don't have the heart to tell LaTroy that Sloan didn't want to
talk to him. The whole point of today is to cheer him up.
It's me. Surprise.
Well, I do agree that you are very special,
but that wasn't your original plan, was it?
-You wanted it to be Sloane.
-And she said no.
I'm disappointed that Sloane doesn't want to talk.
But it's not like it's a big surprise.
Sloane. You're here.
I gave it a lot of thought and Amy is right, I do miss LaTroy.
And it's time for me to put my hurt feelings aside.
I'll leave you two alone.
Yo. Super Sloane.
Is this green light frozen or something?
Are you good?
Are things good?
Yes. Things are good.
Things are really good.
I'm sorry, too.
I have to go.
Yes. My dad is going to be coming back soon, so I should go, too.
That conversation with LaTroy was a little awkward,
but at least it's a start.
Dancing usually helps me clear my head and understand how I'm feeling,
but I can't stop thinking about James and Alfie.
This is the most complicated thing I have ever felt.
POP MUSIC PLAYS
No matter how much I think about being with one of them,
I miss the other just as much.
How can I choose between them?
You know, I don't really think
things are going well enough here for you
to be sitting down, Riley.
-What are you doing here?
-I'm here to help.
-Sister needs sister, right?
If ever there was a time that I needed my sister,
it's right now.
# We, we are going to show the world
# Everything we're made of
# We're going to tear the roof off this place
# You, you can never fade us out
# Don't even ask the DJ
# Everybody knows we own this sound. #
