On the evening before the football game, Dodie is alone in the stadium writing a letter. Flashbacks tell us the events of the past days.
Dodie is rejected from the cheerleading squad at Lucky High. She tries to get a way in by cooking for the coach, washing the team's laundry and other chores. With little result until cheerteam captain Simone discovers she's best friends with Darren. And let football star player Darren be Simone's latest crush. Should she help Simone and betray Ginger? Or tell Ginger and risk her chances for the team? She can't even ask Macie who is trying to find a way to dump her boyfriend Andrew.
Meanwhile Lois takes Carl on a househunt. And that leads to dark castles and rat-infested houses.
