PlotRudie is getting the crowd pumped up for HJ5 who emerge from an inflatable whale floating in the ocean. As they jump to another tier of the whale, they pop a hole in it causing it to deflate and fold on top of them.
G, who was viewing the report through Love's tablet with the rest of HJ5, can't believe what she is hearing. Love reminds her that it was a question, not a statement. Rudie attempts to remedy the situation by saying it was just a freak accident and no one could see it coming, but Music dismisses that statement, telling him he got an inflatable stage over "Porcupine Reef". G goes to sit down in a chair as the rest of the girls ask if she's still with them. Rudie tries to make light of the situation, announcing he got them a gig headlining the farm festival, opening a new chapter.
The red curtain opens, revealing a massive amount of farm animals as HJ5's audience. The girls shrug it off and they begin their usual crowd pumping, leaving G to finish, but she just stands there, staring off into the distance while Hetti Harrumph's words ring in her mind. G begins screeching and making various noises into the microphone as Rudie runs in, thanks the audience for coming, and the curtain closes on them.
G is seen relaxing near the ocean and admits she could stay there for forever when she hears a voice. Chewie appears and talks to G, giving her some valuable advice. She notices in the sky the girl's signal, and hears them calling out for her. She remembers that it's her dream and see needs to perform at that concert. Chewie tells her she must ride the whale, who is actually his ride named "Willie". The ground begins shaking violent as several Hetti Harrumphs emerge from the sand. G is able to escape from them, grabbing Chewie, hopping on Willie and begins riding through the ocean.
Back on stage Love says they need to send out a better signal, so they all grab hands and dream a spectacular rainbow that shoots through the sky. G sees this rainbow and heads towards the girls, but Chewie says she must confront her fear. A giant hooded figure appears from the ocean and tells G she is "washed up". G is pretty confident she knows who she is. The hooded figure removes the hood only to reveal it's G herself. The hooded G degrades G by telling her she can't do it and will fail. G conquers her fear by launching herself into her hooded counterpart, shattering the illusion.
