After a wild night of partying, Kaya wakes up in bed next her Crossing Coldwater bandmate Taylor. While the events of the previous night flash before her eyes, Kaya prays they practiced safe sex. As Kaya tells Taylor that no one can know about their one-night stand, Kaya's assistant, Natalee, enters the bedroom.
Later, Gunnar, Manny and Taylor are waiting for Kaya to show up at the studio when the band's new producer, Addison Stern, walks in. After receiving the cold shoulder, Addison assures them that she loves their music and encourages them to do their own thing on the album. But before they start jamming together, Addison says they must establish trust as a group ? and she knows just how to do it.
On the way to the studio, Kaya and Natalee discuss Kaya's late-night romp with Taylor. Kaya admits the hookup was ?totally hot? but says it will never happen again. When Kaya enters the studio, she finds Addison and the rest of Crossing Coldwater hugging each other ? naked. That's one way of establishing trust!
After snapping a photo of the intimate moment, Kaya gets a call from her dad, who tells her that Crossing Coldwater's song, "Things I Never Got to Tell You," is #1. With a hit song and new producer on their side, things are really starting to look up for the band.
At lunch, Kaya tells her father, Don, that every time she hears the song she thinks about how they were screwed, since the version that?s on the radio is T. Davis' version. Don assures Kaya and the rest of the band that the success of the single can only mean more creative control.
While taking a break during the video shoot for "Things I Never Got to Tell You," Taylor approaches Kaya and asks her to admit that they shared a connection during their "insane" night together. But she says it was just a drunken mistake. When he says they should be together, she shoots him down, pointing out that it would be impossible since Taylor is best friends with Gunnar, her ex. Not to mention that they live and work together every day.
After the video shoot, Kaya finds her dad getting a little intimate with a girl from the set. Kaya gets upset because this is the first woman her father has dated since her mom left, and Kaya thinks he's just being used for his industry clout. When Kaya storms off and gets into her car, she imagines her dead sister is in the passenger seat. Her sis reminds her of how supportive their father was after their mother left and says that, after five years alone, he deserves to move on.
That night in the studio, Crossing Coldwater discusses the final song that should make it onto the album. When the band can't reach an agreement, Taylor picks up a guitar and plays a ballad he just wrote. The song is about his secret affair with Kaya, and Kaya and the rest of the band loves it.
The next day, Kaya apologizes to her father about overacting about the fact that he's finally dating. Don says he understands and admits that he has already been dumped by his new love interest.
Later, Crossing Coldwater performs in Santa Monica, where their fans go nuts. But it's not just Kaya and perennial hotties Gunnar and Taylor who make the fans flip out. Manny, who usually flies under the radar, has his own cheering section. He gets so excited about having groupies that he invites one girl onstage and signs her chest.
At the after-party, Don asks the band if they want to perform with Gwen Stefani and Jay-Z at the Super Bowl. Hell yeah! But the party comes to a screeching halt when Don gets a call from Rossi, the record label executive, who just listened to the band's new tracks. He hates them all and says the label has decided to pull the plug on Crossing Coldwater?s new album.
