Holly J's list of symptoms is getting longer and way more dangerous. Will she listen to her body before it gives up on her completely? Meanwhile, Alli asks a fellow runaway for help, which lands her into more trouble. Wesley considers focusing on other goals after failing to break a world record.
Holly J is scared. She types her symptoms into one of the school computers and analyzes possible diseases and cancers she could have. Sav tells her to go see a doctor but she tell him she'll see one later. At her locker, she is seen taking many different types of unprescribed medication. Chantay also suggests she go see a doctor. When Holly J starts forgetting parts of her presentation, she collapses and hits her head on a table nearby. She is taken to the doctor where they tell her they need to take blood to figure out what's wrong with her. She, however, sneaks out. Before her presentation for Bev Greyson, Holly J needs to rest and takes a seat. Chantay suggests she go home because she doesn't look good. Holly J figures she's trying to take credit while Chantay is really just concerned with her health. During the actual presentation, though, Holly J urinates on herself and calls her mom to take her to the hospital. There, she learns she has a streptococcal infection causing glomerulonephritis and needs to have a course of dialysis run. It is here that she comes to terms with her sickness.
Johnny calls Alli, who refuses to go back to his dorm or stay longer. After some persuasion, he lets her go off to Vancouver as long as she calls when she gets there. But when she asks a fellow runaway for help on how to make money or get a place to stay, he steals her bag with her bus ticket. With no where else to go, she returns to Johnny's dorm, only to discover that he ratted her out to Sav. He tells her that he won't force her to come home. However, she returns home and the family have a talk. They all realize that they don't talk to each other or open up anymore and decide it's time for a clean slate. They decide to start seeing a therapist and take a group photo together.
Wesley becomes hesitant now that Dave has told the whole school that he is trying to break a world record. However, things go wrong when he and Hannah tweak the pogo stick. He ends up falling and losing his chance to win. As a result, he injures both of his wrists and asks Hannah out on a date.
