After the twist at the end of last episode, it seems like the girls are facing a crisis: I-1 sings the song Wake Up, Girls! used to get into the finals, and since they’ll be releasing it on CD it’s not possible for them to sing it in the competition. They’re all ready to turn on Hayasaka — the only one who could have given their song away — but when he arrives he has his own news. Acting surprised that Wake Up, Girls! won, he announces that he thought of a “better song” that he wants the girls to learn for the finals. They only have a short time to learn this song, but, as Hayasaka points out, top idols learn new songs and choreography in a day, so if they can’t do this, they don’t deserve to win.
