  • Stepsisters Grace and Jessie get more than they bargain for from their high school play.

    10
    Its opening night for "As You Like It", the high school play Jessie and Grace have been preparing for. Mr Dimitri gives notes for everyone in the cast except Grace, as Jessie struggles with her custome, Chad with his scenes and Katie with former friend, Sarah, and her jealousy over Jessie.



    The lack of attention from her Director/English teacher becomes too much for Grace to bear, when he refuses to read the review she purposedly brought for him, she takes matters into her own hands and starts rehearsing with Chad. For some reason, this only upsets Mr. Dimitri who tells her she doesn't do her best, like a real actress would, so he can't believe a word she says on stage. It takes no more for Grace to end up in her stepbrother's bedroom, doing Eli's stuff, until he promises he'd go to the play so she could perform just for him.



    Of course he doesn't keep his promise, which prones to Grace's best performance as she, literally, pours her soul on stage, in front of Mr. Dimitri. Wardrobe crisis averted, Jessie must face a crisis of her own, as Sarah forces Katie to choose between one of them. Luckily, for Jessie, Katies chooses her.



    And luckily, for Grace, Mr. Dimitri was already in the kitchen as she slips through the back door of the party, the two of them share an oddly romantic moment, right before Eli comes along. Even more odd, the same hints of jealousy Mr. Dimitri exhibited in front of Chad, he exhibits in front of Eli, because he put one arm around Grace...moreless
