Rival stepsiblings Simon Pang and Carmen Soledad are in big trouble and when Simon’s overbearing mom and Carmen’s doting dad – recent newlyweds – find out, heads will roll! Villainous Vice Principal Delancy offers a simple suggestion: Instead of punishing them both, they must decide between themselves who should fall on the metaphorical sword before VP Delancy returns!

"It Should Be You/
I've Despised You For So Long" | Carmen, Simon
