Emma and Bryn’s friendship is put to the test when they co-anchor their school's morning. Meanwhile, Jessie figures out that Zuri has been reading her diary. Emma finds a piece of paper in the garbage can and thinks that the cafeteria meat is made of horse meat. The next day she was fired from 'What's up Walden' as the truth is it is actually made of cow meat and is punished by becoming a janitor. She finds a phone in the garbage can and finds out that Bryn framed her. Jessie and Bertram trick Zuri into thinking she's an alien and Zuri also tricks them back. Turns out, she was using special effects wires.
