Daphne leads the Carlton girls basketball team against Simone and her former Buckner teammates in a big invitational tournament with big stakes on the line. Daphne really feels the pressure to win for Carlton and John, but she finds empowerment when the deaf community shows its presence at the tournament and supports her.

Meanwhile, Kathryn meets with a potential book publisher, who tells her the book will only work if she gets Regina on board to co-write it. At the game, Regina’s new boyfriend Patrick surprises Regina by showing up. When Simone fouls Daphne in the last minute of the game, Daphne scores the winning shot, and Carlton wins.

Bay finds herself in another difficult situation when Melody asks her to testify against Emmett’s dad so that she can gain full custody.

Still fuming, Emmett bumps into a lonely Simone in the hallway of their hotel, and they end up spending a passionate night together.
