Now the outcast, Connie is made to realize what it is like to be unpopular, shunned and bullied by her classmates. She turns to Meg for help, but Meg — remembering all the times where Connie was mean to her — flatly refuses ... at first. Then, after having a spear literally shot into her shoulder and enduring another of Chris' taunts, she decides that she needs to set aside her differences, at least temporarily, to give Chris his comeuppance. Working with Neil Goldman (another unpopular teen), the three publicly show a video of Chris dancing naked with lipstick and a silk cape. Chris immediately loses all of his new friends, and Connie's popularity is restored; even though she and Meg admit they will never be friends, the two now have a grudging respect for one another. Chris, meanwhile, apologizes to Meg for his behavior, and also eloquently relates his feelings of what it was like to be popular.
