It’s the last week working at Arista and the gang has one huge final project. They are responsible for getting Arista’s new rock band, Adema, added to the playlist at New York’s world famous K-Rock. The gang is unprepared for the task ahead of them. When they get to K-Rock and make their pitch, they are bombarded with questions that they can’t answer and seem totally underwhelmed by the whole situation. Malik notes, "None of us are really feeling the music and it shows." Surprise, surprise, K-Rock doesn’t choose to add the song to their roster.
While the group’s musical career is coming to an end, Lori’s is just beginning. Nicky, the Arista producer whom Lori met earlier in the season, wants her to come in and try singing on a track for him. She’s nervous about the whole process and invites Mike, Coral and Nicole to come along with her. Lori’s excited about getting in the booth and singing, but it's not happening the way she wants. When she gets frustrated by the whole thing, Coral is right there to support her friend. Lori doesn’t think she could have gotten through the session "without Coral lifting [her] up."
The gang gets another opportunity to pitch Adema to K-Rock. They come in with a completely different attitude and a video from the band. Their enthusiasm gets to K-Rock, who decides to add Adema to their playlist. Kevin is especially proud because it was his idea to get the band to personally support their music. Arista sends the Real Worlders off with a great going-away party. The seven strangers are sad to leave their job, but things get even sadder when they realize that their time together in New York is almost over.
