If she reveals that she is author X then he will ruin her family. She calls Dixon to come and talk. Before he can get out the door he convinces Silver to let Makaela to be able to perform one song at a tribute concert. Finally when Dixon gets to Annie’s she tells him that she earned the money last year to help him, by being Patrick’s escort. She tells him that Patrick has threatened her if she tells the truth and Dixon can’t even cope with the situation. He punches stuff and leaves.

Liam and Navid are moving ahead  with their custom surfboard business and they are trying to get Cassie to be their first pro sponsor. She wheels and deals and tells them that if they get Olly Murs to perform a special concert. Meanwhile Naomi, Jordan, Mark and Silver are all heading to New York along with Annie. Naomi suggests that instead of admitting her book is 100% true just bluff and say the people are made up and the experiences a mish mash of her life.

Dixon kind of comes to his senses about Annie and realizes she scraped the bottom of the moral battle in order to be able to pay for his rehab so he needs to help her now. Adrienna and Makaela are on a mission to find the perfect song to perform, but it’s a tricky task. Eventually Adrienna comes up with lyrics that speak well for how Makeala is feeling.

Dixon looks up Patrick and decides to pay him a visit. Patrick answers the door with his wife by his side. Dixon pulls him aside and tells him never to threaten his family again. Naomi finally gets to meet Jordan’s high maintenance mother Cheryl, who has the knack for swinging insults with a smile. It’s at an heirloom auction and Cheryl insults her for not having a donation. Mark gets up onstage and offers his chef services and the bids roll in, making Naomi look great.

As Olly plays Cassie bursts into tears watching her ex high school boyfriend kiss another. Liam pulls her up onstage and dedicates the next song to Cassie, with a kiss. Of course it pisses her ex off.  Meanwhile things just got ugly for Naomi. Cheryl wanted to talk to her in private and once the door closes Cheryl whips out a big copy of Naomi’s police record. Cheryl rips Naomi apart and dissects her character as Jordan walks in. Naomi tells her that she doesn’t care what she thinks and gets up and leaves.

Silver and Mark are enjoying street food in NYC when they finally share a real kiss. It’s finally time for Annie to unveil herself on camera. Dixon shows up right before and tells her that he’s backing her. She proceeds to tell the truth and Patrick greets her as she’s leaving the hotel the next day. He tells her payback will be a bitch. Cassie pays Liam a visit and tells him that her mother is making her pull the plug on their deal because Liam was a star in Annie’s book.
