The Rock Team Celebrates Their Win at Nationals While
Payson Struggles to Recover from Her Back Injury
Burbank, CA (December 15, 2009) – While the girls celebrate their win at the National Gymnastics competition, Payson struggles with the ramifications of her back injury, becoming increasingly detached from her family and friends, in “The Eleventh Hour,” an all new episode of “Make It or Break It,” returning on ABC Family on Monday, January 4, 2010 (9:00 – 10:00 PM ET/PT).
Following her victory at Nationals, Kaylie is thrust into the media spotlight, alongside Nicky Russo the Men’s National silver medalist. Emily and Lauren have also secured spots on the National Team, which leaves Payson depressed that she’s not celebrating with her friends. And when Nicky returns to Payson’s locker to remove the cortisone he gave her, Lauren greets him and tells him she’s put it in a safe place. Will Lauren rat on Nicky and Payson?
When Damon invites Emily to the Pizza Shack to celebrate her making the national team, where he has a romantic evening planned before he takes off to Los Angeles, the two are interrupted when Razor returns to the Shack looking for Damon.
Meanwhile, as Kim helps nurse Payson back to health, Chloe steps in at The Rock and enlists Summer’s help in running things.
