He explains that he didn’t set the fire, and that now that Howard, Hector, and Brendan are proven innocent, he knows they didn’t either. He and his friends did steal the fireworks, but someone stole them from where they were hidden. That means that he must have a traitor in his group, and the three guys from Centerscore are the only people he can trust. They agree to help find the true culprit.

Tom Prince, who attends the Spartan Academy, wants to win. In exchange for Steph’s help, Tom promised her an internship at Prince Research Labs. Steph stole the fireworks and gave them to Tom who then used them to set fire to the library. This would make Wilson High think Centerscore High did it. While the two were busy with each other, they’d both forget about the Spartan Academy.

Howard confirms that his dad is saying he should have planned something more elaborate, and his dad agrees.
Episode 34: Andy Cannelloni, P.I.
As Andy’s consciousness fades, he hears Travis exclaim that someone knocked him out and Ryan reply that he had no choice. Andy then proceeds to tell the story from the beginning.
Andy hears a dame cry out, in trouble! Paula needs his help. Someone’s stolen the tiara to be used for the Prom Queen out of Principal’s Shapiro’s office. It’s a very expensive tiara that one belonged to Silas Prince’s great-grandmother, loaned to Centerscore High by Silas. Principal Shapiro said prom would be cancelled if anything happened to it. After being beat for Winter Homecoming Queen by Taylor, Paula says this is her last chance to prove her popularity. Paula explains that after school at cheerleading practice she found that someone broke into Principal Shapiro’s office, stealing the tiara. She saw the culprit break the window and run away. Andy agrees to find the thief.
First, he goes to cheerleading practice. He presses Taylor, who tells him that she didn’t see anything suspicious but that Paula has a new, secret boyfriend. Next, he examines Principal Shapiro’s office. He finds the window broken, shards of glass covering the parking lot outside, as well as a broken-off, bright pink fake fingernail under the case. Finally, he discovered a hidden security camera with a device attached used to block it. He takes it to Brendan, and they discuss it. The device loops the camera’s video so that it doesn’t record anything new. Brendan believes that Steph from Wilson High is the only kid who could make one.
At Wilson, Andy pretends to be Mr. McGraw, admissions officer from Centerscore Academy of Technology. He claims to be impressed by the camera, and Steph reveals that someone anonymously contacted her over FaceSpace, offering to pay her to make it. She was able to detect that it came from Centerscore High’s network but doesn’t know who it was. Outside, Travis attacks him, but Andy wins the fight. At least, he wins until Ryan attacks him from behind, knocking him out.
Lucretia, Andy’s ex-girlfriend and daughter of Mr. Doom, defeats the two guys and takes Andy to an abandoned car factory on the edge of town. He’s obviously still interested in her, but she claims to have ended it for his own good. She tells him that he’s just a pawn in this and that he needs to stop the investigation. Andy steals a kiss before leaving, driving to Paula’s to explain that he can’t figure it out. She informs him that she remembered something else. The person running away from the crime scene was blonde and in some sort of uniform. Suddenly, Andy hears an intruder downstairs. He runs downstairs, but the man gets away to his car outside. A high-speed chase ensues, but the other person crashes. Andy finds the deserted car, but the driver got away. The license plate says “T-PRINCE.”
The next day at school, Principal Shapiro is furious after seeing what happened. Andy interrupts to announce that he knows who did it. He says it was Paula! He deduces that Paula was worried that Taylor would win Prom Queen, and Paula would rather no one win than Taylor win. He believes she hired him to throw him off. He also believes that she tried to pin it on Taylor. Paula admits it, and Principal Shapiro goes to call the police. Andy wonders why Paula had guys beat him up, but she replies that that was Tom’s doing, who thought she shouldn’t have tried to use Andy. Andy knows Tom must have been the brains behind the plan, but wonders what Silas Prince had to gain by loaning the tiara in the first place. Much earlier, Tom started dating Paula. He brings up the idea of stopping Taylor from winning Prom Queen by stealing the tiara.
Andy goes back to the Wilson side of town, likely to see Lucretia. Meanwhile, Silas sits with Paula’s dad. He agrees to drop the charges if Paula’s dad signs all of his possessions over to him. He angrily agrees.
Bonus scene: Dexter journals in his Captain’s Log, considering himself a space-marine on the Centerscore space station. He’s on his way to the station’s library to help the Space Princess Ashley study planetary trade agreements when Travis the Terminator attacks him. Travis is hoping to let off steam after being defeated by Lucretia. Dex threatens to disintegrate him, and when Travis doesn’t leave, he squirts him in the eyes with a squirt gun full of hot sauce.
Alternate endings: If Andy accuses the wrong person, the police will find that the accused was innocent and then find Andy guilty, putting him in Officer Monte’s Boot Camp for Troubled Boys with increased security. If he accuses Taylor, the police will find that she was at cheerleading practice. Amanda takes self-photos every 11 seconds on average, and Taylor’s in the background of most of them from that night. If he accuses Wilson’s Steph, the police will find that traffic cameras show she wasn’t home at the time.

He tries out, and the team accepts him.

Spike reveals to Mallika that the money from the Flex Games was spent on Chip’s broken tooth.
The two find it funny that Prince Automotive would close their factory when they appear profitable. Mallika knows Silas Prince can’t be trusted, so they decide to do some research. After talking to Amanda’s dad, who works for Prince Automotive, they learn that the rumor is correct. Paula’s with Amanda looking to borrow one of her dresses for prom. Now that Silas Prince took all of her father’s property in exchange for not pressing charges, she’s poor. Mallika and Spike head to Kim’s bakery for cookies. Kim’s upset because Silas Prince’s lawyers are trying to convince her to sell her property. They learn that Silas is actually making offers on most of the properties in the area. Mallika realizes this must be related.
When they go back to the car, they find the window broken and an old journal of Jonah Prez in the car. Jonah Prez was the woodsman that was killed by Obadiah Prince. They decide to talk to Brendan and Dinah about it. As they leave, Mr. Doom quietly says “doom,” but they’re not sure what they hear.
They find Brendan, and after helping him impress Dinah with poetry at a poetry reading, they all try to decode the cipher in the journal. They discover that Jonah Prez found some sort of treasure hidden under Centerscore. They deduce that Obadiah Prince killed him for the treasure.

They headed to Andy’s, where Andy talked to them about Silas Prince’s plot. Bruno and Hansel, working for Silas Prince, attempted to stop them outside, but Kim defeated them in a dis battle. Tom, Kim, and Andy went to the Prince estate. While they were there, they saw portraits of the members of the Prince family, including Tom’s Uncle Bruno, who was obliterated in an accident. Tom took them into the vault using his ring with a ‘P’ on it that all Prince men have. Andy suddenly has an idea and left, telling them to stall Silas. In the vault, Tom saw maps of the town with properties marked that matched what Silas was buying. They also saw security footage of the Wilson library, learning that Mallika and Spike were trapped. They quickly went to the school, which is when they met with Mallika and Spike.
The four drive to the location at which Silas is about to break ground. Tom vows to stop him because while he loves being rich, he’s also sick of being moved from boarding school to boarding school as a child and loves Centerscore. Kim stalls Silas for almost an hour, but Silas orders the drilling to begin, saying “drill, baby drill!” Just then, Andy arrives with Lucretia and her father, Mr. Doom. Silas orders Bruno, Hansel, and Klaus (who says “Shock… Followed by awe!!!) to defend him, but Mr. Doom defeats them using Petitent Stare, Regenerate, Doom swam, and more. Andy explains that Malcolm Prince was the heir to Prince fortune and a good man. Silas, his younger brother, tried to kill him. Malcolm was transformed into Mr. Doom. Sometimes he was coherent, but many times he wasn’t. His wife tried to take care of him, and when she passed away, his daughter, Lucretia, took care of him.
