An announcement is made that the school play at PCA will be based on Chase's original script, so he is offered the male lead and casts Zoey opposite him, as his love interest. But when Logan comes in to read and is clearly better than everyone else, Chase is left no choice but to award him the lead role. At first, Zoey is hesitant to work with Logan and plans on quitting, until she sees him in action and immediately becomes smitten. Chase tries to sabotage Logan by getting him to catch Dustin's cold, but the plan backfires and Chase is sequestered in the infirmary on opening night. Meanwhile as the play unfolds, Logan's true colors are revealed, allowing Zoey to see him for the jerk he really is. She improvises some alternate dialogue to avoid kissing him at the end of the play, and the crowd loves the new version and responds with a standing ovation.
