Emma hasn’t heard or seen Sutton since the day they first met. Sutton failed to meet at the prearranged time so Emma has no choice but to continue with the charade of “Being Sutton”.
Since Emma is worried and is preoccupied with thoughts of Sutton she starts to let parts of her own personality appear, which are completely different from Sutton’s. Sutton’s friends and family notice the changes but think it’s for the better and are enjoying a nicer side to Sutton. Since Emma never had a father she wants to please Sutton’s so she has to learn to ballroom dance for the annual father-daughter dance. Emma doesn’t know how to dance so enlists the help of Ethan, as he knows she’s not Sutton.
Sutton’s sister Laurel tells her parents some of the things that Emma has been doing. We find out that there’s more to Mad’s family than we first thought. Her father is up to something and he gets upset when Mad shows her support for her uncle Thayer, who went to LA to look for work.
Meanwhile, as the teenagers do anything to keep their secrets, the parents may be lying to keep life-altering secrets of their own.
