In this episode Alex meets Penny for the first time. He is angry after his conversation with Alicia, the fake saviour of Nicole, and refuses her but later they meet again and sing a version of Music Speaks.
Penny is staying at the hotel of The Talent but she is not taking part of it and lies Alex telling him she is on vacation with her family. Anyway, she is convinced she wants to become a singer and attend to the M.A.R.S. music school.
Penny leaves at the reception an envelope containing Nicole's bracelet and the text "The universe owes you one" written on it.
The Lindas plan to take Rodolfo to the hospital and tell him to kiss Nicole, like they were the Sleeping Beauty and the Prince Charming. However, Giada ruins it by making him believe he has to kiss her instead.
After seeing Giada and Rodolfo's photo on a social network, Linda expels her from The Lindas.
Penny, Camilla, Emma and Nicole are shown to be watching him. The last moves a finger after the song ends.
This episode is titled "The universe owes you one" in France.
When Alex is in his room showing Emma the unfinished lyrics of The Universe Owes You One, Nicole's diary is opened and both pages are written. At the end of the scene, only the right page of the diary is written.
The text on this right page contains the first three verses of Alex and Bakìa's duet version that will be sung in the next episode.
While Matt is singing Truth or Dare with Ray, he says "There's no right or wrong" instead of "There's no wrong or right" for unknown reasons.
At the beginning of Alex and Penny's Music Speaks cover, we can see he plays one chord on his guitar but we hear two chords.
While singing the line "And if I can't explain I'll sing a song", Alex moves his arm to play a sharper chord in the word "and" but we hear this chord in "can't".
The final chord of the song is also seen before being heard.
Emma, about Ray and Matt's song: So awesome, guys! But why? Ray: Do I need an excuse to dedicate you a song?
