|“||Sometimes dreams don't come true.||”|
Chloe is dancing alone in Studio A to "Never Loved Like This Before," trying to get all of her feelings out, as she still doesn't know whether to keep her position at The Next Step, or to tour with La Ballet de la Reine. While she dances, West enters, and decides to watch her dance. West believes that Chloe has outgrown The Next Step and wills her to make a decision.
Chloe is teaching Baby Ballet. While teaching, Margie tells a fellow dancer that she needs to let go of her stuffed tiger because if she holds onto something for too long, she will be unable to do her best. Chloe is inspired.
Thalia walks into Hidalgo's and sits across from Eldon. He immediately gets nervous because he likes her and doesn't want to mess things up like he always does. Thalia asks Eldon if he wants to go to a concert with her and Eldon lies that he can’t because he doesn't like music when in reality, he still hasn't hit 30 pirouettes and can’t date her until he does. Thalia then asks him if he'd like to go to a baseball game, and he lies that he is allergic to the leather on the baseball; if a home run was hit towards him he'd instinctively catch the ball and get an allergic reaction. Frustrated, Thalia asks Eldon why he is avoiding her and he says that he has to take care of some business before they can date.
Chloe enters Kate’s office to finish up some work and she tries to build up the courage to tell Kate that she is leaving to join the ballet company. Kate tells Chloe that she doesn't know what she'd do without her and that she knows she can count on her to always be there, making Chloe question her decision to leave.
Later, West approaches Chloe who tells him that she can’t leave The Next Step because it’s her family. West tells her that she has to because The Nutcracker is her dream and she responds with: "Sometimes dreams don’t come true." West thinks that Chloe is making the wrong decision.
Margie walks into Hidalgo's and engages in a staring competition with West. Margie tells him that he needs to tell Chloe that she is making the wrong decision. The staring contest abruptly ends, but Margie tells him that she would have beaten him in a staring contest, as the longest she has gone not blinking is 6 hours.
Eldon asks Thalia how she's doing and she seems annoyed, seeing as he was previously avoiding her. He apologizes, but tells her that he has 30 things he needs to take care of before they can date and says that James will explain everything. James explains that Eldon isn't mature enough to date until he can do 30 pirouettes. Thalia doesn't think she can wait that long. In the Music Room, West approaches Chloe and tells her that she needs to take the spot in the ballet company because The Next Step helps people accomplish their dreams and if she doesn't go, the team has failed.
Eldon is practicing his pirouettes with West's assistance. After a series of them, Eldon collapses from fatigue and nausea after turning for so long. Thalia enters and is immediately concerned at the sight of Eldon lying on the floor. He quickly gets up despite still being nauseous, and West wards her off, as Eldon believes no woman should ever see a man in that state. Thalia approaches James (who is with Riley) about the scenario. James tells her that it is good that he is overdoing it; through overdoing it he is gaining the maturity he needs to become a whole person to compliment their future relationship.
Chloe is in Kate’s office, waiting for Kate. When Kate arrives, Chloe finally tells Kate that she got a role in The Nutcracker, and has decided to take the opportunity. Kate is sad, however, she is very proud of Chloe and says that everyone will miss her. She promises her that they will all come on opening night. Thalia walks into the Music Room and sees Eldon sitting on the floor, looking incredibly defeated. She tells him that she appreciates the effort and assists him.
Chloe is in Studio A dancing for the last time and Margie appears seemingly out of nowhere. Margie knows that Chloe has made the right decision. Chloe tearfully admits that Margie was like her guardian angel since she helped her make a huge decision in her life. At the end, she sees Margie wave, curtsey and then disappear into thin air. Chloe questions whether Margie was real at all, but still says that everybody needs a little bit of Margie to support them.
