With the clock ticking towards the Class of 2007's Prom and Graduation ceremony, Liberty has the perfect night planned: Prom, with the amazing Natasha Bedingfield performing, which was made possible through a contest entered by Liberty. Toby then asked Liberty to be his "date" for the prom, which Liberty thought was just as friends. Amidst all of the commotion, Liberty finds herself attracted to Damian and confides in Toby, who storms off angry and hurt. They were later spotted making out. Manny also sees the two sneaking off together and confronts Liberty when they return to the others. When everyone went to the pool. Damian brags to Toby about his and Liberty's hook-up, which Toby instantly reveals to everyone there. Angry at Damian for cheating and Liberty for betraying her trust, Emma angrily calls Damian out on it and exits the pool, Manny and Toby following closely behind. Ashamed of her actions, Liberty severs her ties with Damian. The next day, Liberty is given the cold-shoulder by her friends. During her graduation speech, Liberty speaks of friendship and forgiveness and chokes up when she starts her memorial of J.T., running out of the auditorium in embarrassment. Emma tearfully follows Liberty outside and assures her that the one mistake is insignificant compared to all of the selfless deeds that Liberty has done. In suit, Manny and Toby comfort Liberty and the four friends return to commencement. Following the ceremony, the four friends honor their departed friend J.T. by flipping the tassel on the graduation cap reserved for him.
