Meet me at the airport.

0:00:020:00:03

Bring your passport and pack for a couple of days.

0:00:030:00:05

Going away with Alfie is a big step...

0:00:050:00:09

huge.

0:00:090:00:10

I'm really sorry, Your Highness.

0:00:100:00:12

She's not coming, is she? How could she do this to me?

0:00:120:00:14

I don't know how Riley got here, and I don't care.

0:00:180:00:20

And now I know I can win this thing.

0:00:200:00:22

The winner is...

0:00:250:00:27

The Next Step!

0:00:270:00:28

We won Bangers and Mashups, the international hip-hop competition!

0:00:300:00:35

That is insane!

0:00:350:00:36

I had no idea I was going end up in England when I woke up yesterday.

0:00:470:00:51

But I followed my heart, and it led me to James.

0:00:510:00:54

After Riley and I broke up, I never thought I'd see her again,

0:01:020:01:05

until she showed up in London.

0:01:050:01:07

And you know what? It was perfect.

0:01:070:01:09

I can't believe I ever doubted my love for James.

0:01:160:01:19

Dancing with him right now,

0:01:190:01:21

it's clear how much I love him and he loves me.

0:01:210:01:24

There's so much I want to say to you.

0:01:340:01:36

Stop.

0:01:380:01:39

You're here, that's enough.

0:01:400:01:42

OK, just one thing. I love you.

0:01:430:01:46

I know.

0:01:480:01:50

I love you, too.

0:01:500:01:51

One, three, five, seven, fast.

0:02:300:02:34

Right now, I'm leading A-Troupe in some conditioning exercises.

0:02:340:02:37

Michelle and I have kinda been in charge since Riley went on her trip.

0:02:370:02:40

PHONE BUZZES

0:02:400:02:42

-Three.

-Looks like Amanda and I won't be

0:02:420:02:43

holding down the fort for much longer.

0:02:430:02:45

I can't wait to see the look on people's faces

0:02:450:02:47

when they see who's back.

0:02:470:02:49

OK. No, they're not.

0:02:520:02:56

Hey guys, um, come on.

0:02:560:02:58

What's going on?

0:02:580:03:00

Sorry that I left, but I had some business to take care of.

0:03:000:03:03

Good to see you guys back together.

0:03:030:03:05

I was a little nervous to see how

0:03:050:03:06

everyone would react,

0:03:060:03:08

but they're all happy for us.

0:03:080:03:10

Except for one person.

0:03:100:03:12

Who's not here.

0:03:120:03:14

Um, where's, where's Alfie?

0:03:140:03:16

Is there something you're not telling me, Michelle?

0:03:200:03:23

Well, he hasn't been here in a couple of days.

0:03:230:03:26

Maybe he's sick or something.

0:03:260:03:29

Alfie picked a good day to be sick.

0:03:290:03:30

If he saw Riley and James holding hands, it would break his heart.

0:03:300:03:35

OK. Um, I'll call him later and deal with that, but for now, Piper,

0:03:350:03:40

could I talk to you in my office alone?

0:03:400:03:42

Now that James and I are back together,

0:03:420:03:43

I need to fix all the problems I made along the way,

0:03:430:03:46

starting with Piper.

0:03:460:03:47

I owe her an apology.

0:03:480:03:50

You can sit.

0:03:570:03:58

I just wanted to apologise.

0:04:010:04:04

I know I ruined our relationship.

0:04:040:04:06

You have every right to be mad at me.

0:04:060:04:08

You trusted me, and I let you down.

0:04:080:04:10

And I am so sorry for that.

0:04:120:04:14

What I did to James was not fair.

0:04:140:04:16

Can I interrupt you for a minute?

0:04:160:04:18

Yes.

0:04:180:04:19

You don't have to say any of this.

0:04:220:04:24

I forgive you.

0:04:250:04:26

As long as James is happy, I'm happy,

0:04:280:04:30

and James is always happiest when he's with you.

0:04:300:04:33

You and me, we're like sisters, and we always will be.

0:04:350:04:38

I'm really happy to hear you say that.

0:04:410:04:43

Can I have a hug?

0:04:440:04:45

I would feel terrible if Piper hadn't forgiven me.

0:04:470:04:49

She's my little sister and I'm glad to have her back.

0:04:510:04:54

Eyes on me, eyes on me.

0:04:590:05:00

OK, that was better, man, that was better. Peace, bro.

0:05:020:05:04

Right now, we're supposed to be rehearsing our small group

0:05:040:05:07

routine for regionals, but that's a little hard to do without Alfie.

0:05:070:05:10

That was good, that was good.

0:05:100:05:12

Hey, guys, so I have a bit of a surprise for you.

0:05:120:05:15

I thought I'd bring in some choreographers

0:05:150:05:17

to help you with your routine.

0:05:170:05:18

-Cool. Who?

-Well...

0:05:180:05:20

HE IMITATES FANFARE

0:05:200:05:21

Hey!

0:05:230:05:24

These guys just won basically the

0:05:240:05:27

biggest hip-hop competition in the entire world.

0:05:270:05:30

We couldn't ask for better choreographers.

0:05:300:05:32

Oh, and the pose.

0:05:320:05:34

This isn't just any trophy.

0:05:340:05:37

This is a British trophy, and it deserves a grand entrance.

0:05:370:05:41

Yeah, it's pretty sweet, isn't it?

0:05:410:05:43

-Whoa! Oh, my...

-I almost had a heart attack.

0:05:430:05:47

OK, no touching or breathing around the trophy.

0:05:470:05:50

As a matter of fact, back it up.

0:05:500:05:51

-Back it up.

-Back it up.

0:05:510:05:52

I thought West and Eldon helping with this routine was a no-brainer,

0:05:520:05:56

but that was before they won that trophy

0:05:560:05:58

and it went straight to their heads.

0:05:580:06:00

Well, I'm looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with.

0:06:000:06:03

-Have fun.

-All right.

0:06:030:06:05

-OK.

-It's gonna be awesome.

-OK, so I want to know what...

0:06:050:06:08

Ah! Oh, my...

0:06:080:06:09

She just took the trophy.

0:06:110:06:13

You know what? It was distracting us anyway,

0:06:130:06:15

it's probably better that she takes it.

0:06:150:06:17

Eldon and I are here to see what these newbies got.

0:06:170:06:20

If these guys are on A-Troupe, that means they're good.

0:06:200:06:23

I'm pretty sure whatever choreo they put together

0:06:230:06:25

is already really strong.

0:06:250:06:26

DANCE MUSIC

0:06:260:06:31

Woo!

0:06:410:06:42

# Some people get famous. #

0:06:420:06:44

We're a little off balance without Alfie right now,

0:06:440:06:47

but West and Eldon are professionals.

0:06:470:06:49

They'll be able to see past that.

0:06:490:06:50

# Sometimes in the spotlight... #

0:06:500:06:53

See, their choreography's good,

0:06:530:06:55

but I don't know if it's ready for regionals.

0:06:550:06:56

Yeah, they're not maximising their talents.

0:06:560:06:58

Yeah, that's where we come in.

0:06:580:07:00

Yeah, bro.

0:07:000:07:01

They're in sync, but they're not really gelling.

0:07:090:07:12

If they want to be a regionals-winning team,

0:07:120:07:14

they're going to have to learn how to be more connected.

0:07:140:07:17

MUSIC CONTINUES

0:07:170:07:20

Oh!

0:07:280:07:30

OK. That was really good, guys.

0:07:300:07:32

-Yeah, good job.

-Really good.

0:07:320:07:34

But you have a lot of hard work ahead of you.

0:07:340:07:37

Yeah, the choreography's good,

0:07:370:07:39

but I don't think everything is at the level for regionals yet.

0:07:390:07:43

And that's where we come in.

0:07:430:07:44

We feel like we need to add something

0:07:440:07:46

to make this a regionals-winning routine,

0:07:460:07:49

so we're going to talk that over and figure out what that is,

0:07:490:07:52

and then we'll get started. Cool?

0:07:520:07:53

-Sounds good.

-Cool. All right, sweet.

0:07:530:07:55

OK.

0:07:550:07:56

I'm sure whatever West and Eldon add

0:07:560:07:58

is going to make the dance that much better.

0:07:580:08:00

I'm dreading making this call.

0:08:020:08:03

But I stood Alfie up at the airport

0:08:050:08:07

and he deserves to know why.

0:08:070:08:08

PHONE RINGS

0:08:090:08:11

PHONE RINGS

0:08:160:08:18

Hello.

0:08:310:08:33

'Hey, Alfie.'

0:08:330:08:35

Hey, Riley.

0:08:360:08:37

I'm so sorry I left you at the airport.

0:08:420:08:45

'Are you OK?'

0:08:470:08:48

I'm fine.

0:08:510:08:52

There's so much I need to say to you, but I want to say it in person.

0:08:540:08:57

When are you coming back to the studio? Tomorrow, the day after?

0:08:570:09:00

I'm not coming back.

0:09:000:09:01

What?

0:09:030:09:04

I'm done. I've left for good.

0:09:050:09:08

I'm in Switzerland.

0:09:090:09:11

I've got to go.

0:09:120:09:13

Bye.

0:09:150:09:16

Alfie left because of me.

0:09:220:09:23

Without him, we might not win regionals.

0:09:250:09:27

My personal drama could cost us everything.

0:09:270:09:30

Riley asked Eldon and I to help out

0:09:400:09:42

with the small group for the regionals routine.

0:09:420:09:45

After a little brainstorming, I know exactly what we need to do.

0:09:450:09:49

-OK!

-All right, everybody.

0:09:500:09:54

-Everybody.

-Everybody.

0:09:540:09:56

Everyone, let's sit in a circle.

0:09:560:09:59

I'm not sure how sitting on the floor has anything to do with

0:09:590:10:03

choreography, but I'm new to being dance captain, so what do I know?

0:10:030:10:08

All right, hold hands.

0:10:080:10:09

Don't you think this is kind of a

0:10:110:10:12

weird starting position for hip-hop routine?

0:10:120:10:15

Yeah, see, we're not dancing just yet.

0:10:150:10:17

Everybody at regionals is going to be great dancers,

0:10:170:10:20

but in order for you guys to win

0:10:200:10:21

you have to do something different.

0:10:210:10:23

If you want to be the best at regionals,

0:10:230:10:26

you've got to be totally connected.

0:10:260:10:28

What's the most important part about dance?

0:10:280:10:30

It's all about what is going on upstairs.

0:10:300:10:33

You are going to need to know how to read each other's minds.

0:10:350:10:37

West is talking next level stuff here and I absolutely love it.

0:10:370:10:42

That's impossible. Nobody can read minds like that.

0:10:420:10:44

Really? Then how do I know that Eldon is hungry?

0:10:440:10:48

-That's easy. Eldon is hungry all the time.

-True.

0:10:480:10:50

How do I know that he is hungry for a tuna salad and some fr...

0:10:500:10:56

No, no, curly fries?

0:10:560:10:58

-Right on the money.

-See?

0:10:580:10:59

I've never seen anything like it.

0:10:590:11:01

It's like West and Eldon are the same person.

0:11:010:11:04

And this connection, it doesn't only

0:11:040:11:06

apply to your best friends, all right?

0:11:060:11:08

Noah, how do I know that you are thinking about kissing Amanda?

0:11:080:11:12

And Sloan,

0:11:120:11:14

you are thinking about that recent video that you just filmed with Jude

0:11:140:11:18

-that just went viral.

-Nice!

0:11:180:11:19

-Hey, congratulations!

-Thanks.

0:11:190:11:22

Skylar, you are thinking about a... rogue bee?

0:11:220:11:26

-It was rugby, but still amazing.

-Rugby, all right.

0:11:260:11:31

Henry.

0:11:310:11:32

Henry, you are thinking about what I'm thinking about.

0:11:350:11:39

It's kind of like a thought loop, it's really freaky.

0:11:390:11:42

OK, so you mean we're going to be able to do that?

0:11:420:11:44

One day. One day, young grasshopper.

0:11:440:11:47

-OK.

-Now, let's get to work.

0:11:470:11:50

We don't have enough time to teach these guys how to read minds today,

0:11:500:11:53

but being aware of the connection is the first step.

0:11:530:11:56

Alfie's gone, Amanda, gone.

0:12:050:12:07

-He moved back to Switzerland.

-He didn't really move back.

0:12:070:12:10

He has a castle there.

0:12:100:12:11

I only told three people about Alfie being a prince,

0:12:110:12:14

and Amanda is one of them.

0:12:140:12:15

So I know I can trust her with this.

0:12:150:12:17

Whatever, that's beside the point.

0:12:170:12:19

The point is he's not going to be here with us for regionals.

0:12:190:12:22

And it's all my fault. I messed everything up.

0:12:220:12:24

OK. Whoa, whoa! We still have time to figure things out.

0:12:240:12:26

Alfie was our featured dancer in the regional routine, Amanda.

0:12:260:12:30

The whole dance is structured around him,

0:12:300:12:32

and even if that wasn't an issue,

0:12:320:12:34

we are still down one dancer without him.

0:12:340:12:36

OK, Riley, we can just adjust the regionals dance

0:12:360:12:38

to fit the dancers that we have left.

0:12:380:12:40

And even without him we still have enough dancers to go to regionals.

0:12:400:12:43

Don't worry about it, we'll be fine.

0:12:430:12:46

I know what Amanda is saying makes sense,

0:12:460:12:49

but it's not making me feel any better.

0:12:490:12:51

I'm sorry to burden you with this.

0:12:510:12:53

Normally I'd talk to James about it.

0:12:530:12:55

You did not just say that.

0:12:550:12:57

Never in a million years could you ever talk to James about this.

0:12:570:13:01

Do you think James wants to sit here and listen to you blab on

0:13:010:13:04

about Prince Alfie? No.

0:13:040:13:06

I would never ever talk to Noah about one of my ex-boyfriends.

0:13:060:13:10

Keeping this from James feels like a lie,

0:13:100:13:13

and I don't want to restart our relationship on a lie.

0:13:130:13:16

Now that you guys have a connection,

0:13:160:13:18

it's good to now carve out the story.

0:13:180:13:20

Exactly. What can you bring from

0:13:200:13:22

your personal lives in to the dance to make it better?

0:13:220:13:25

A dance routine is like a lasagne.

0:13:250:13:27

Dancers, music, choreo, energy.

0:13:280:13:32

But see, this last layer, the top layer is the most important layer.

0:13:320:13:36

That's the story and that makes a lasagne.

0:13:360:13:39

I'm dating Amanda.

0:13:410:13:42

Well I'm not dating anybody, I'm just not feeling it.

0:13:420:13:45

I have feelings for someone,

0:13:450:13:46

but I had to put them aside for the sake of our friendship.

0:13:460:13:49

I have a boyfriend.

0:13:490:13:50

-What?

-What? Since when?

0:13:500:13:51

-You have a boyfriend?

-Whoa!

0:13:510:13:54

I never brought up my boyfriend

0:13:540:13:56

because some of us leave our relationship drama

0:13:560:13:58

outside of the studio.

0:13:580:14:00

What's with all this relationship talk?

0:14:000:14:02

Is that all you guys are thinking about?

0:14:020:14:04

I'm dating Talia.

0:14:040:14:06

Eldon, you're not helping.

0:14:060:14:08

-Sorry.

-What's going on with all this boyfriend, girlfriend talk?

0:14:080:14:12

These guys should know that the only relationship that matters is

0:14:120:14:15

the relationship with your fellow dancers.

0:14:150:14:18

Henry, Noah, Sloan, Skylar.

0:14:180:14:21

You guys aren't now the new bros of A-Troupe, all right?

0:14:210:14:24

With you guys being the new bros,

0:14:240:14:25

it's important for you guys to learn the rules, OK?

0:14:250:14:28

The rules are that bros come first before anything, all right?

0:14:280:14:32

Before romance, before video games, even before dance.

0:14:320:14:36

-OK, I have a question.

-Yes.

0:14:360:14:37

-I'm not a bro.

-Me neither.

0:14:370:14:39

Anybody can be bros.

0:14:390:14:40

Boys can be bros, girls could be bros, if horses could talk,

0:14:400:14:43

horses would be bros too.

0:14:430:14:45

Bro-dom is about friendship.

0:14:460:14:48

It's kind of like a 0% club.

0:14:480:14:50

-Yeah, whatever that is.

-Why don't we make the dance about that?

0:14:500:14:53

Being there for your friends when they need you.

0:14:530:14:56

No, no. I don't think so.

0:14:560:14:58

I think the dance should be about

0:14:580:14:59

being there for your friends when they need you.

0:14:590:15:02

-What?

-Dude! That's really smart actually.

0:15:020:15:04

Brilliant, genius!

0:15:040:15:06

My brain is working.

0:15:060:15:09

The wheels up here, they're just...

0:15:090:15:11

Always. 24/7.

0:15:110:15:12

No, no, 24/8.

0:15:120:15:14

An extra day in the week for my brain to work.

0:15:140:15:16

Extra. Extra work.

0:15:160:15:18

Extra! I didn't even know that was possible.

0:15:180:15:20

I can tell that they're starting to get it.

0:15:200:15:22

Once Eldon and I are done with them,

0:15:220:15:24

they're going to be a force to be reckoned with.

0:15:240:15:26

# You can disappear. #

0:15:300:15:32

Five, six, seven, eight.

0:15:320:15:34

Boom... Boom.

0:15:340:15:36

Down, and...pose.

0:15:360:15:39

Hey, OK!

0:15:390:15:40

I know our approach is really out there,

0:15:400:15:42

but these guys embraced it.

0:15:420:15:44

I'm proud of them. They've come a long way in just one day.

0:15:440:15:48

Now that we have handed the bro-torch to you guys,

0:15:480:15:52

there is one more thing to this ritual.

0:15:520:15:54

What's that?

0:15:540:15:55

What is it?

0:15:550:15:56

We have to dance.

0:16:010:16:02

OK, show us the moves you did at the competition.

0:16:020:16:05

-Yes!

-Whoa!

-OK, sweet.

0:16:050:16:08

MUSIC STARTS

0:16:080:16:10

What?

0:16:170:16:19

Hey!

0:16:190:16:20

Whoa!

0:16:220:16:23

No wonder these guys are two of the best in the world.

0:16:260:16:28

Everything they do is on point.

0:16:280:16:30

Hey!

0:16:300:16:32

West is a crazy inspiration to me.

0:16:370:16:39

I'm dying to show him what I've learned.

0:16:390:16:41

And, besides, I can't let him have all the fun.

0:16:410:16:43

Oh!

0:16:470:16:48

Whoa! Hey!

0:16:490:16:50

Hey!

0:16:520:16:54

I can't believe I'm dancing with these guys again.

0:16:560:16:59

It's so cool to have them back.

0:16:590:17:01

It's just like old times.

0:17:010:17:02

That was great, you guys, but I actually have some bad news.

0:17:050:17:08

Alfie was one of the dancers in the small group,

0:17:080:17:11

and his team mates deserve to know he's not coming back.

0:17:110:17:14

Alfie will not be returning to The Next Step.

0:17:150:17:18

-What?

-We've done all this work, what do you mean?

0:17:180:17:21

Well, Alfie is not coming back,

0:17:210:17:23

because...he's a prince.

0:17:230:17:26

-What?

-You've got to be kidding me.

0:17:260:17:28

He has royal business in Switzerland.

0:17:280:17:31

Wait, what? A prince?

0:17:310:17:34

I knew it. He had prince written all over him.

0:17:340:17:37

All this time one of my best friends was a prince and he never told me.

0:17:370:17:42

How could he keep that a secret for so long?

0:17:420:17:44

I was sworn to secrecy while he was in this country, but it's all true.

0:17:440:17:48

Well, what are we going to do?

0:17:480:17:49

Thanks to West and Eldon, we have a sick piece

0:17:490:17:51

and Alfie is supposed to be in it.

0:17:510:17:53

Great, now the whole team is panicking.

0:17:530:17:56

James would know exactly how to handle this,

0:17:560:17:58

but I cannot risk losing him again.

0:17:580:18:00

Amanda told me not to talk to James about Alfie,

0:18:090:18:11

but it's all I can think about,

0:18:110:18:13

so I'm just sitting here trying to pretend like nothing is wrong.

0:18:130:18:16

Pretty sure it's not working.

0:18:160:18:18

It's definitely not working.

0:18:180:18:19

What's wrong with you?

0:18:210:18:23

Me? Nothing.

0:18:230:18:24

-Nothing is wrong with me.

-OK, Riley, I know you pretty well by now.

0:18:240:18:27

Whenever you make that face there's something wrong.

0:18:270:18:31

I am totally fine.

0:18:310:18:33

And you always make that one to cover it up.

0:18:330:18:35

I can't believe Riley has forgotten my powers of persuasion.

0:18:380:18:42

She needs a little refresher.

0:18:420:18:44

Oh, no! He's giving me the look.

0:18:460:18:48

I can never say no to the look.

0:18:480:18:50

I can see it.

0:18:530:18:55

-See what?

-Whatever's going on with you.

0:18:550:18:58

You can tell me.

0:18:590:19:00

I really want to tell you because I could really use your advice, but...

0:19:030:19:06

But nothing, spill it.

0:19:060:19:08

Spill it!

0:19:080:19:10

-HIGH PITCHED VOICE:

-Spill it, spill it.

0:19:110:19:14

I want to talk to you about Alfie.

0:19:140:19:16

Him.

0:19:260:19:27

-Yeah.

-You want to talk about Alfie?

0:19:290:19:32

Yes.

0:19:330:19:34

Well, I did ask.

0:19:390:19:40

Look, I know he's the last person you want to talk about right now.

0:19:420:19:46

Talking about HIM is not going to be fun,

0:19:460:19:49

but Riley needs me there for her, so that's where I'll be.

0:19:490:19:53

Let's talk about it.

0:19:530:19:55

OK. Well...

0:19:580:19:59

..he left us, like for good.

0:20:010:20:02

As in, he's not going to be dancing with us at regionals,

0:20:020:20:05

but he's our strongest dancer so I have to find someone to replace him,

0:20:050:20:07

but what if we can't win without him?

0:20:070:20:09

What if we lose regionals,

0:20:090:20:11

and it's all because of me and my stupid personal drama?

0:20:110:20:14

First off, never blame yourself for hurting the team.

0:20:150:20:17

If anyone is hurting the team it's him for leaving.

0:20:170:20:20

What are we going to do without him?

0:20:220:20:25

Look, everyone on A-Troupe is here because they're great.

0:20:250:20:28

Sure, Alfie was good.

0:20:280:20:30

So is every other person.

0:20:300:20:31

You got this, I know it.

0:20:380:20:39

I love you.

0:20:420:20:43

Thank you for being there.

0:20:430:20:44

I'll always be here.

0:20:460:20:47

Just never be afraid to ask.

0:20:500:20:51

I should have never doubted that I

0:20:510:20:53

could talk to James about whatever is bothering me.

0:20:530:20:55

James is the best boyfriend.

0:20:550:20:57

Jiley is reunited! But the team has lost a member.
