With her 17th birthday just around the corner, there isn't anything Tessa wants more then to spend her special day with her best friend and old flame Chase. Over lunch with Rocky, Tessa confesses that she still has feelings for Chase, but who wants to date a rocker?
Over at Kyndra's house, she is getting ready to hang out with Cameron. While she stresses out over making sure she looks perfect, she is quick to point out that even though they're going out together alone, they aren't technically going out on a date. During their 'outing,' Kyndra makes it a point to find out if Cameron is with Jessica. While Jessica might not agree, Cameron swears he has never dated her, and they only really ever hooked up once.
Later on at band practice, Chase gets a phone call from Rocky, who says that Tessa's surprise party has gotten the green light, and that he needs to go out of his way to make Tessa believe he isn't going to be around on the night of her big day. When Tessa and Chase meet up at the Koffee Klatch, Chase apologizes to Tessa, saying he'll have to miss her birthday because he'll be busy with his band Open Air Stereo. She seems bummed, but says she understands how important Chase's band is to him.
No one is more annoyed about Rocky's throwing a surprise party for Tessa than Cami and Kyndra. While laying out by Kyndra's pool, the two can't get over how tacky they think the invitations are. They are disgusted by the 'tastelessness' of the whole ordeal, and aren't even sure they're going to attend. As far as Kyndra's concerned, the only real reason to go to Tessa's party would be to see Cameron.
The hour of the party is closing in, and Open Air Stereo has set up their gear, the decorations are in order, and Rocky has received a call letting her know that Tessa is less than a minute away. When the birthday girl walks through the front door of her party, she is completely shocked and taken aback by the crowd. Eventually the party moves downstairs where the band is rocking out and everyone is partying --even Cami and Kyndra. Midway through the set, Chase calls Tessa up on stage, and with little convincing, the entire party joins Chase in singing happy birthday. Well, except for Cami and Kyndra, who decides this is the time to ditch.
The next day, Tessa is still having trouble believing that previous night's party actually happened, and is happy that she celebrated her birthday with all her friends, most importantly Chase. Later on at dinner, Chase and Tessa talk about how important they are to each other. Just when conversation seems to be heading in the direction of romance, Chase's phone starts to ring. Even though things seem to be going well between the two of them, it looks as though any next steps might have to wait. Open Air Stereo is getting bigger than ever, and Chase's commitment to the band isn't going to leave much room for anything else.
