Many scenes expressed the two sisters D’Amelio shy and anxious.
The episode ended with Dixie suffering from emotional breakdown resulting from hateful comments on a clip of her leaving the gym. The majority of those comments were about how he looked after training.
“They break every thing I do and make it, like, a negative thing,” Dixie exclaimed through tears.
