While Poppy waits for the Honour Court to decide if she should be expelled, Freddie finds her crying and becomes convinced that the fire was an accident. Meanwhile, her roommates find out that Poppy did not send the emails.
Going to the Court, they stand up for Poppy and Harriet accidentally confesses to restarting the fire after Poppy had put it out; Poppy is absolved.
This prompts Freddie to take the concussed girl outside for air, where he asks her out on a date.
The next day, Poppy discovers her talent for lacrosse and whips the school's team into shape, getting them into the finals.
After Poppy reveals that her mother died several years ago in a car accident, her roommates decide to help her get expelled so that she can return home.
Together they carry out several pranks which gradually bring them closer together.
With no one else to turn to, Poppy sneaks down to the cook's room and calls Ruby.
