When the girls make their way downstairs one morning, expecting a typical lesson in dining etiquette, they are surprised to discover that only a TV screen is set up in the dining room, instead.
Ms. Shrager tells the girls that the Hedsor Hall board of trustees will be evaluating them that day. The girls will sit in a separate viewing room as the trustees and the instructors watch videos of the girls' pasts, and give criticism that the girls won't be able to argue with.
After the girls watch horrible, embarrassing videos of themselves, Tara decides that they need a constructive way to release their anger and frustration. She sets the girls up with a fencing coach, with the incentive that whoever wins the fencing competition will also win a phone call home.
After battling through the preliminaries and semi-finals, Kimberly beats the intimidating Margie, and calls home to her parents.
The instructors decide that the girls have been so impressive with their progress, that they will be treated to a night out at a restaurant. Before they leave, however, Brianna is sent upstairs to remove her 'personal' piercings, and Margie is reprimanded for her inappropriate outfit. Margie begins to cry, and heads upstairs as the rest of the girls go to the restaurant without her.
As Margie is in the middle of packing her things, Headmistress Harbord comes upstairs to check on her. She tells Margie that although she's improving on her anger management, she can't just run away every time something goes wrong.
While the rest of the girls are out at dinner, they are approached by a group of guys who ask to buy them drinks and shots. Some of the girls accept, while others stubbornly keep themselves in check. Jennifer especially struggles when she finds a cute guy to flirt with. Luckily, all of the girls manage to make it back to Hedsor Hall without any boys or potential hangovers in tow.
The next morning, Ms. Shrager instructs the girls in a cooking class, where they will be preparing a traditional British tea party for the same board of trustees that watched their videos. The girls each struggle with their cooking assignments, and Jennifer is even sent away for whining and wearing too much make up.
The board of trustees arrives for a tea party with the girls, and Ms. Shrager asks them to put aside their proper ways and speak their minds about the videos in front of the girls, so that she can test how the girls manage their anger. Some girls succeed, but some take the criticism personally and let their old attitudes creep out.
Later at elimination, Hillary, Paola, and Brianna are called to the front for discussion. However, girls are so convincing with expressing their desire to do better that the instructors decide none of them will be going home.
Instead, Ms. Shrager calls Margie out for being so disrespectful and clearly not wanting to be at Hedsor Hall, and asks her to hand in her pearls. After Margie leaves, Ms. Shrager turns to Jennifer and tells her she does not seem sincere. Jennifer insists she wants to change, but Ms. Shrager decides it's too late, and sends her home, as well.
