Scared by the fact that people would find out about her cancer, she does pretty crazy things to avoid her first day of high school. She drags Katie along with her and gets her suspended as well. When Alexa opens up about her hair falling off, Katie shaves her hair off to cheer up Alexa.

3) Part 3 Ep8: It was time for Alexa and Katie's SATs. Katie the 'Straight A' student, studies really hard. On the day of their SATs Katie gets a panic attack right before the exam.

4) Part 4 Ep8: They made up a pact to go to the same college. But with Katie getting into NYU she gets one step closer to her acting dream.
