Back on the sunny beaches of California, Laguna's next generation doesn't waste any time ranking on the drama-meter. While Tessa works on her tan with her best friend, Raquel, she ponders going to her ex-friend Kyndra's barbeque. Worried about heading into enemy territory alone, Tessa says she'll only enter the popular clique's turf with Raquel by her side. Even though Racquel doesn't want to show up uninvited, the two ultimately decide they're willing to take the risk to see the guys.
Popular girls Kyndra and Cami spend time shopping and gossiping before the party. Cami freaks at Kyndra's inviting Tessa, but moves on to a more important subject -- Cameron. Kyndra keeps crushing on the popular jock despite his being involved Jessica (yes, that Jessica). Meanwhile, Jessica meets up with Alex M., Alex H., and Taylor for lunch, where she dishes on being with Cameron. Her friends rag on her for dating a younger guy, but she doesn't seem to care.
As Cameron and Kelan shoot some hoops, Kelan teases him about playing the field. He's talking to both Jessica and Kyndra, but taking Jessica out to dinner that night. When his phone later rings on their sushi date, Jessica steals his phone and starts reading through Kyndra's text messages. She smells something fishy and confronts him, saying she learned a lot about guys form her ex, Jason.
Before the party, Tessa makes a stop at Nick G.'s house, where Chase is holding band practice. The two take five and go outside to catch up. When he asks her if she's going to Kyndra's barbeque, Tessa says that she's hesitant to go since they've drifted apart and the girls have been mean. Chase responds that girls are 'sketchy,' and the two exchange a meaningful glance.
At the barbeque, the popular girls welcome in the crowd of boys. But the girls aren't happy for long. When Tessa shows up with Racquel, Kyndra gets heated. The party divides, with Kyndra's clique on the sofa loudly trash talking Racquel and Tessa. Knowing they aren't wanted, Tessa and crew leave. Then, with a little flirting, Cameron convinces the girls to hit the hot tub. While Jessica thinks Kyndra is 'butt hurting' over not having Cameron, he shakes up the situation by revealing to Kelan that he stayed overnight at Kyndra's after the party.
After the barbeque incident, Tessa and Raquel remember why they aren't friends with girls like Kyndra, who later brags to Cami about hooking up with Cameron. Kyndra doesn't seem to care about Jessica -- she's just enjoying the hunt. Meanwhile, Jessica watches over Cameron with her friend Courteney while they're on the beach. She's excited about how easy it seems with Cameron, and Courteney says Jessica's never looked happier. Little does she know what happened at Kyndra's...
