Felicity comes out of nowhere and tells Danielle that she wants to talk privately with her, taking her outside. Danielle is scared at first, but Angel tells her to just talk and then they can get out of there. Outside, Felicity starts going mental about how Danielle ruined her friendship with Angel and Danielle calls her crazy. Felicity then takes out a knife and stabs Danielle in the stomach, who tries to speak, but finds it difficult through the pain. Angel runs out and sees Danielle is losing a lot of blood, so she calls the cops. Angel visits Danielle in the hospital who reveals that no extreme damage was done and that after stitches, she'd be let out after the weekend. Danielle tells Angel that she doesn't blame her for what happened, but that their next three sleepovers are at Angel's house, which she agrees to.
In Carry On, she is getting dropped off at school by her mom who is trying to get Danielle to talk to her again. She tells her that she's making Danielle's favorite dinner and Danielle doesn't care, leaving and slamming the door. At lunch, she asks about Jeremy's audition, but everyone is acting weird. Ethan asks how she is, not knowing that she hadn't seen that Brad and Chloe are almost a couple. When he tells her, Danielle says that he can date who he wants, but sheds a tear. Ethan hugs her and she blames her mom again, saying she wants to make her miserable like her husband did and when her friends find that harsh, she leaves to go work on her art project. When she's at her locker later that day, she hears Brittany talking to Chloe about her dating Brad and slams her head into her locker. Ethan comes by to console her and she says that she should be over Brad, but she's not. Ethan tries to help by kissing her, but she pushes him away, asking why he did that. He says that it was to make her feel better because he still likes her and when she tells him that she isn't interested, he calls her a bitch. She tells him that she doesn't have to date him just because he likes her and he calls her a cunt. She slaps him and tells him not to call a girl that ever again before walking away in disgust. She gets home that day and sees her mom sitting at a table with Brad. She is shocked to find out her mom brought him back so they could reunite and Danielle would stop hating her. Danielle tells her mom that he's already with another girl and tells him to leave. He does and when her mom tries to apologize because she didn't know, Danielle tells her not to talk to her and goes to her room. Her mom comes up to talk to her and apologizes for everything, saying how bad she feels that Danielle hates her, but then Danielle says that she doesn't. She says that she forgives her mother and that she let Brad control her entire life for way too long, not knowing who she is without him. She then smashes her mirror with a hairbrush because she doesn't recognize the girl in it and her mom understands, taking her to the store to get a new mirror. They laugh about how she can't cook and reunite as mother and daughter.

Danielle is very nervous to open it and doesn't want to open it, so her mom grabs it and tries to open it for her, but Danielle grabs it back and opens it herself. She is sad to learn she did not get the job, but Angel did. Angel tells Danielle she won't go and will stay in Clearwater with Danielle, but she tells her not to and wants her to go and make the cash. When Angel is still hesitant to go without her, Danielle says she'd be upset if Angel didn't go and that she would find something else to do over the summer. Angel recommends finding a guy, but Danielle says she's staying away from boys for a while and then decides to take Angel out for ice cream. On the way out, she looks at her letter again and is still upset, throwing it in the trash as she walks out. That night, she calls Alicia and wants to hang out with her, telling her the camp was a bust. Alicia tells her she can't hang out and when Danielle questions her on why she sounds upset, Alicia quickly hangs up. She starts getting discouraged about her summer being awesome until she sees a post Jeremy has on Facebook saying he has an extra ticket to Hollywood if anyone wants to go. She quickly lights up and runs downstairs to tell her mom she's going to Hollywood tomorrow. Her mom is a little skeptical at first, but Danielle tells her to imagine she's in her position and her mother decides to let her go as long as she talks to her everyday. Danielle is ecstatic and hugs her, then starts heading off to Jeremy's house to let him know she wants the ticket. When she gets there, she tells him she wants the ticket. He makes sure she knows they're leaving in 10 hours and she is aware, saying she needs the trip to make her summer the best ever and forget about all the stuff she went through during school. He tells her the ticket is her's and she hugs him before running back home to pack. On the plane, she helps Jeremy with his big story for Spotlight Stars and tells him that he should say his parents are dead and winning the show was their dying with. Jamie quickly squashes that idea, but Jeremy still considers it.
Once they are in Hollywood, Danielle is amazed and separates herself from the group, saying she's got pepper spray and they're not her parents. She goes to an art gallery and is on the phone with her mom talking about the flight when she sees a painting with her father's name on it. She hangs up on her mom and calls Angel, telling her what she found. Danielle then finds an address on it and Angel tells her she should go visit her dad, even though they haven't spoken in 3 years. Danielle decides she's going to visit him and can't believe she's seeing him again after he left. She follows the address and finds her father's personal art gallery. When she walks in, she sees a painting of her house and realizes she's still on his mind. Her father comes out and says "hi" to whoever is in his gallery. Danielle panics and runs out as her dad tries to find whoever was in there and Danielle feels stupid for not just saying hi, but goes back to the hotel. She is curious as to what he's doing now, so she brings Sadie back and forced her to go inside and find out about his life. When Sadie is done, she tells Danielle that he has a new wife and newborn child, which shocks Danielle and she is speechless. She is sitting outside of a cafe when Isaac finds her and invites her to the premiere of Spotlight Stars, but she rejects his offer and says she wants to sit and think, upset about her dad not reaching out to her. She tells Isaac she wants to make him happy and Isaac tells her to do what she loves and he will be proud of her. She then gets an idea and asks Isaac for $30. Danielle is alone in the hotel room with an easel and paint, wanting to paint something to show her dad and make him proud of her. Jamie barges in and interupts, saying she's leaving early because of Jeremy. When everyone returns to the room, she tells them Jamie left and what she said about Jeremy. She then tells everyone she is painting the next day and to keep the room empty while she works. Tori rudely tells her there are more important things and that they need to find Jamie, but Danielle tells them her plane is leaving before they will get there, but they don't listen. The next morning, she tells everyone to leave and when Tori tells her she can't do that, Danielle pushes them out and then gets started. Everyone returns to the room because they are leaving early that night and Jeremy asks her if she got the text about it and she said she did and he is lucky she was already done. She covers her painting with a sheet and asks Tori to pack for her while she goes off to do something. She goes to the gallery and drops off the painting, saying goodbye to Hollywood on the way out. The painting is revealed to be of her looking at her father from outside of the gallery and her father looking at her back. After the plane ride, they get on a bus to Jeremy's house and she complains about being on public transportation which annoys Tori even more. Back at Jeremy's apartment, he tries setting up a plan to get Jamie back, but Danielle says she needs to get home, so she gets in Jeremy's car and he drives her home.
As Jeremy drops her off and she waves goodbye, she hesitates to go in and calls Scott, telling him what happened in Hollywood and asking for advice on how to face her mother about her father. Scott advises her to tell her the truth so she doesn't find out later and Danielle agrees, going inside. She is later sitting at the kitchen counter while her mother makes her hot chocolate and asks her about her trip and Danielle says she has to tell her something. After hesitating, she tells her mom about her dad's new life and her mom tells her that she's known about Jessica, her ex-husband's new wife for 7 years. She then tells Danielle that her father was with Jessica while he was married to her mother and Danielle is shocked and disgusted her mom would stay with her dad while he was cheating. Her mom tells her she wouldn't understand and Danielle says she doesn't before leaving her mother and going upstairs, shocked and upset.

Danielle and Angel look concerned. Danielle doesn't leave and sits on the porch and when Alicia's mom comes home, she asks Danielle if Alicia is gone and Danielle tells her she's inside, but won't let her in.

She walks up to Alicia's locker later with Eric and Sophie and see her emptying it because she is leaving the school.

She goes into Mr. Teller's office and starts to flirt with him intensely, eventually getting him to make out with her. While they are kissing, she gets a photo of it and then tells him if he doesn't leave Alicia alone, she'll send it to Principal Hanson.

Alicia hugs her and asks what she did, but Danielle tells her she doesn't want to know. Alicia thanks her again as she leaves and Danielle finds Moon crying on a bench, asking what's wrong.
