Michelle Fairchild, ""Looking For Dory""

"Looking For Dory" is the twenty-first episode of the second season of PINY Institute of New York.


Michelle and Julia wake up in the same room and don't remember what happened the day before - nor do they know where Dory is.


The episode starts with Julia and Michelle waking up in the Beautiful People's room while Dory isn't there. Julia and Michelle are both confused when Mrs. Skornik calls Julia and asks where is Dory. Nervously, Julia answers she doesn't know but she should be around campus. For that reason, Michelle and Julia start to look for Dory.

While they were looking around for Dory they are first of all confronted by Miss Bogart who tells them that they were excellent in their drama lesson that they didn't remember and then Mr. Grasso tells them that they were brilliant in their design lesson.

Simultaneously, Lilith is trying to hypnotize Tasha which fails. While on the search for Dory they meet Sam who is on a tree. Soon the girls get texts on what happened to them on the previous day and that they were wearing their Halloween costumes.

Fortunately, Dory is found but it seemed that the hypnotism that Lilith was trying to do on Tasha happened to Michelle, Julia and Dory and that is why they were acting like that. Now the girls aren't hypnotized anymore they forget everything that happened. The episode ends with Lilith and Tasha explaining to the girls what had happened.
