    Miley discovers somebody knows her "Secret" and she finds out it is Rico. To make sure he won't tell she pretends to be his girlfriend, so the other students will think he is cool for hanging out with her. But dating Rico, even pretend.. is not a good idea.



    I liked this episode, it took me like 3-4 tries (because I never saw the end) to know what was happening, and when I saw what the "secret" was, it was pretty funny. Overall, a good start to the show's second season, my overall grade for this episode is an A+moreless
  • Good first episode of the season.

    This is a a very good episode to start the season. It had everything the first season had and more. This episode is about Miley's first few days at high school. On her first day she gets a text message from a random person that says they know her secret and they will everyone in the school if she does not do what he tells her to do. Later that day Rico comes up to Miley and asks her if she got his message. Rico makes Miley be her boyfriend. Also Jackson has a new kid following him and thinks he is his friend. But nobody likes the new kid.moreless
  • This was one of the better episodes I've seen lately.

    Miley gets a text message from someone saying that they know her secret. She obviously thinks they know that she is Hannah Montana. She finds out that Rico is the one sending the text messages. He tells her he wants her to be his girlfriend and I really love what Lilly says...

    Miley: Okay, Rico, you know my secret. What's it going to take to shut you up?

    Rico: You... as my girlfriend.

    Miley: Say what?!

    Rico: Don't flatter yourself, doll face. This is strictly business. I need some hall cred in this place, and you can help me get it.

    Lilly: Oh, so all he's looking for is a little arm candy.

    Rico: That and someone to reach the top shelf of my locker.

    Lilly: (To Miley) You can totally do that.

    Miley: You can totally shut up!

    Miley agrees so he won't tell her secret. Miley was going to give Rico a kiss on the cheek, but he turns his head at the last second. In the end, the big secret was a picture of Miley kissing her teddy bear.moreless
  • Rico takes a picture of Miley kissing her teddy bear, Beary Bear. He texts her and tells her he knows her secret. She thinks he knows she is Hannah Montana, so she becomes his gal-pal. Then he gives her the phone, and kisses her on the lips, she gets mad!moreless

    It was an average performance, average puns, average episode all around. I don't expect more from the characters, I expect more from the writers. The actors didn't have a lot to work with on this script. Most people seem to like this episode, so I am happy for the writers, actors, etc. But I. . . I am a tough cookie. Lol. Please try to keep the performance to its highest level, even if you have to reach a deadline. I know it will be hard if you are trying to make the deadline, but you could probably work it out.moreless
  • Miley, Lilly and Oliver start high school on a rough note when they must find a way to stop Rico from telling everyone Miley's "secret". Meanwhile, Jackson faces trouble when a new student, Thor, decides that he's his new "best buddy".moreless

    I thought this episode was very good. It's one of my favorites actually. I found the storyline funny and very ammusing. I enjoyed the fact that they are starting high school and have new obstacles to overcome as the school years goes on. I think it will make the series much more interesting because there are now more possibilities for future storylines. I thought the fact that Rico had a monkey in his locker with a snow cone machine and a mini fridge entertaining as well. Overall, it was a very well written episode and I hope most of the future episodes will be like this.moreless
