That night at the campfire, Emma and Xander started to fall in love with each other much to Gladys' niece, Hazel's jealousy. Gladys comes in and every does the Kikiwaka chant as Gladys reveals that the Kikiwaka is a legendary creature who roams the camp.
The next morning, all the campers are doing obstacle courses with Ravi not doing good and Woodchuck cabin falling behind. Hazel shoots an arrow near Emma. Later, while Emma is on a rope over a pit of mud, Hazel throws a dodgeball at her, causing Emma to lose her balance and fall face first into the mud with everyone laughing at her. But Xander doesn't laugh and comes in and helps out Emma, leaving Hazel very pissed.
After getting cleaned up, Emma was upset that she was embarrassed that she was laughed at and stated that she's the lamest CIT and that Hazel is never gonna let her close to Xander, but Lou said she's not the lamest CIT. Moments later, a paper airplane lands on Emma's bed and opens it saying that Xander want to meet Emma at the Spot. That night, Zuri comes along with Emma as she doesn't want to listen to Tiffany's attitude. She then trips on something and Emma helps her out. It was a giant footprint and they suddenly heard a loud growling and makes a run for.

When Lou drags Tiffany to play pool with her, she was confused to see Xander and that he was suppose to be at The Spot with Emma, but Xander stated that he never send Emma a note revealing that it was Hazel who sent Emma the note so she could die. They go into the wood and heard the growling as well and ran into Emma and Zuri. Emma and Xander were happy to see each other and hugged when Emma and Zuri learned Hazel said Emma the note.
