Episode Summary

Fear Itself
Meg and Roxanne are chosen for East Catholic's Prom Committee. Their assignment: get "cool" seniors onto the "Bandstand" set so they can take candid photos known as "senior snaps." Success, Roxanne gushes, will make them "the coolest sophomores in history." But they don't have permission from "Bandstand" to do it. Meanwhile, Will's Soap Box Derby is coming up, but he's afraid of the hills, and J.J.'s afraid of testing his newly healed leg; Patty has joined the Robins, and is very competitive about earning badges; and Jack hires Sam to do a job at the Girard Avenue store.moreless

  • This is an amazing episode, I don't know why, but I really love this one.

    Roxanne and Meg are working on prom commitee, but while trying to impress the seniors Meg makes a big mistake... Seeing the fear and Meg crying when she goes to confront Michael Brooks shows a lot about her character, the innocent little Meg, who always wants to do the right thing but is scared out of her mind of losing the one thing she absolutely loves: Bandstand. But I don't like Roxanne as much in this episode.

    I love the whole astronaut thing, and Fear Itself... A great quote and the whole thing is amazing. I love at the end with the great song... Hold On! and JJ's running, and it has the dedication to Columbia... How superb... I get goosebumps all the time. Fantastic Episode!moreless
