Amy then sees Ellali staring at them, and puts her arm round Iftach, as Ellali introduces herself, with Amy doing the same, adding it's nice to meet her, shaking Ellali's hand. Iftach then begins to explain that him and Amy grew up together, saying that they knew each other since they were 1 year olds, with Amy adding their moms even gave them baths together when they were babies.
Amy goes on, saying that ever since she went to the UK, both her and Iftach have been in an LDR, with Amy expressing it stands for Long distance relationship. Iftach further explains that Amy has been attending music school back in London, with Amy adding that that was what separated them and also saying that she was the one who actually convinced Iftach to enroll at the Greenhouse, bursting into laughter, asking whether that's funny, as Ellali sarcastically calls it hilarious.
Back in the present, Iftach walks up to Ellali at the bar, begging her to talk with him, but Ellali however says she's busy. Iftach then asks her to at least let him explain himself, but Ellali is quick to say it's all clear and that nothing need's to be explained, going onto say that Amy went to the UK on KLM and brought something back from H & M. Ellali then asks Iftach where Amy is, guessing she be filling him a bath. Amy then arrives in the cafeteria, with a tray of milk and cookies for everyone.

Iftach then says bless you for Amy, as Dina watches Alona and Matti laughing at each other. She asks Ellali, who's busy disconnecting party lights, whether she wants her to pour a cup for her, but Ellali says she doesn't. The scene then flashback's again.
Outside in the Greenhouse grounds, Alfie runs to find his sister sitting down on the lawn, looking down. Alfie sits down next to Ellali and asks her if Amy's like Iftach's girlfriend. Alfie then sees her crying and tells her to stop her tears, adding Iftach's not worth, wiping her tears away. Ellali, however says she knows but is not crying, before continuing to cry, as Alfie hugs her asking her to not do so, but ends up telling her to let it all out. Ellali then tearfully explains that she couldn't understand how Iftach kept Amy secret from her, with Alfie questioning what she couldn't understand, adding that Iftach thought he could have both her and Amy.
Ellali then wipes away her tears, saying she wouldn't forget the look on Iftach's face, when he saw Amy appear, adding it was like he saw a ghost. Alfie then calls him a jerk, Ellali goes on explaining that everything seemed to be going well. Alfie then gets up, to go and confront Iftach, remarking he doesn't know who he's messing with, however Ellali stops him, expressing it has nothing to do with him, asking him how many people would he really want to fight in one night, but Alfie expresses he didn't fight with Daniel, with Ellali then saying he just spent the entire evening with Daniel's girlfriend. Elalli then expresses she didn't mean to ruin his night and tells him to go and have fun.
Ellali finishes, saying she's going to be fine, as Alfie asks what she's going to do, with Ellali expressing she doesn't know believing she'd sleep for two days. Alfie then tells her no way and that she's coming with him, but Ellali says she doesn't want to, not wanting to have to face them again. Alfie says ok, but that he couldn't promise he wouldn't accidently hit Iftach. Alfie then beckons her on, adding that the prettiest girl at the dance, couldn't just go to bed at 8:00PM.

Sophie finishes, adding that the couple who gets the loudest applause, would win. The game then begins, as everyone begins to clap.
Matti then tells Dina he loves this, as Sophie says she guesses everyone's feeling quite embarrassed, so she'd just start, as she waltzes into the circle.

Natalie questions who Dina thinks she is, just as Daniel begins to hobble away on his crutches. Natalie tries to stop him from throttling Alfie, with Daniel exclaiming he's happy she showed up, adding he was just going ask Alfie if he minded that he'd dance with his own girlfriend, angrily taking off his sunglasses. Natalie tells him that he's embarrassing himself and asks him to go and cool down, however Daniel says he's totally calm, asking Alfie whether he believes so. Natalie then begs Daniel to stop, before he hobbles past Alfie, hobbling over to the DJ booth to take the mic.
Daniel then announces, he'd like to thank Ron for DJ-ing, calling him their very own David Guetta, as well as their captain; Sophie who organized the whole party, before clapping the two.

Flashing back, one of the Eagles boys, brings an Back to the Future cake to Sophie, who places it on the DJ booth-top. Sophie then explains that she knows it's a game for children, but they've worked a twist into it, adding they'd play a game of Musical Chairs; with Ravens vs Eagles. Ellali then sarcastically proclaims it's just what she needed, as Sophie continues to explain the rules of the game; explaining that if an Eagle is the last person standing, Iftach would get a cake in the face, or if the winner is a Raven, she'd get a cake in the face.
Sophie then adds that's what captains do, sacrificing themselves so that they could have fun, also adding that Ron is blindfolded so there's no cheating in the game. Ron then puts on some music, as the game begins and the students begin circling the chairs. The music then stops, with Amy not managing to get a chair, as the music begins again.
The game has been going on for a while, as it's down to the last three; including Ellali and Alfie.

Natalie then gets caked, by Dina, who sarcastically says hi from behind them. Natalie angrily proclaims she'd show Ellali "oops", after Ellali threw cake at her. Natalie in response dumps a bowl of punch over Ellali's head, with Alfie remarking Natalie's crazy. Alfie says he couldn't believe what's happening, as Natalie continues to try and squirt condiments on Ellali, with Ron saying he couldn't believe he didn't have a camera on him.
Back to the present, everyone has just finished cleaning up after the dance, with Dina asking Ellali if she found out about the memory erasing agency, with Ellali telling her that by the time, they got back to her, there was no point anymore, adding she doesn't want to erase the memory of Dina throwing cake over Natalie from her head, with Dina adding it was good thinking.

Iftach then tells Amy that there's something they need to talk about, as it flashes back to the previous night. In the girls bathrooms, Amy is looking at herself in the mirror, trying to get pieces of cake off of her. Daniel then walks out of the cubicle, as Amy wipes off the cake, before he heads to the tap. Sophie then arrives in the bathroom, also making use of the mirror, wiping off cake. Daniel then tells Sophie, that he would appreciate it, if she didn't tell Louis of the night's events. Sophie expresses it's fine, adding he already got what he deserved, before he heads out of the bathroom.
Amy then walks back up to the mirror, to get rid of any extra cake, just as Sophie heads off. Sophie then brings Amy a set of spare clothes, with Amy thanking her, saying she's so sweet. As Amy gets changed, Sophie says she bets that Amy's never had a party like that in London. Amy then notices Nowitski, in the cubicle, asking Sophie what it is, adding she's allergic to rodents, but Sophie adds that that is no reason to scare him, expressing how cute the rabbit is. However Amy, says it just stinks, asking whether anyone cleans him and why animals are even allowed in there, quickly storming off, with Sophie telling her it's none of her business.
Amy calls it disgusting, with Sophie responding by saying it's as disgusting as what Iftach did to his date; Ellali, expressing to Amy that Iftach had been hitting on Ellali for two months, without even a mention of Amy, asking whether that's disgusting. Amy then continually sneezes, as Sophie leaves. Back to the present, Amy stops Iftach explaining, expressing that everything's fine and that she only came for the weekend, adding they shouldn't have any drama, with Iftach agreeing, as Amy says they should enjoy these incredible two days and that all that matters is that their together now. Amy then kisses him, as Iftach suggests they head to the Ravens clubhouse, adding he couldn't stand seeing her in that Eagles shirt and that she must change out of it.
In the staircase, Matti is desperately trying to stop Dina from running from him, with Dina stopping and asking what he wants, adding she knows his plan with Alona worked out and that she's in love with him and that he'd now want to thank her, but Matti expresses that's not it, asking Dina to come with him, deeper into the hallway. Matti tells her to remember what she told him about Robbie and the cave, with Dina asking whether it was her dream. However Matti expresses he's beginning to believe it wasn't a dream after all, with Dina asking what made him think that, as Matti explains that something's going on between Robbie and Alona and that every time he looks at her, Alona goes pale and she begins to tremble, adding that she's been acting strange since the Space Agency visit, expressing he believes something fishy is going on around there and that they would find out what it is.
