A wealthy young man who’s completely obsessed with Jem offers a reward to anyone who can tell him her real name. The Misfits convince him to build an exact replica of Starlight Mansion and hire actors to pose as the Holograms. They then trick Jem into going there and place her in situations where she will be forced to reveal her real name. When their benefactor threatens to call the scheme off, the Misfits lock him up. Jem’s only hope is for Synergy and the Holograms to find her in time.moreless
