THE ROCK CRUMBLES UNDER PRESSURE,
IN AN ALL-NEW EPISODE OF "MAKE IT OR BREAK IT,"
MONDAY, APRIL 18TH AT 9:00 PM ET/PT ON ABC FAMILY
Burbank, CA (April 5, 2011) - Darby's relaxed approach to coaching may ultimately prove to be The Rock's undoing, in "Life or Death," an all-new episode of ABC Family's original series "Make It or Break It" premiering Monday, April 18th (9:00 - 10:00 PM ET/PT).
With the Hungary invitational only two weeks away, the girls should be at the top of their game. But when Darby arranges a meet against the worst-ranked club in the country in a misguided attempt to build team confidence, the girls feel their dreams of winning Worlds slip further away. As tension rises in the gym, Darby is more concerned with being everyone's friend than preparing the team for the upcoming meet. With the competition rapidly approaching, Darby's decisions could have dire consequences for Payson, Emily and the entire team.
Meanwhile, Kaylie struggles with the news about Maeve and leans on Damon for emotional support. As the NGO continues to keep Emily and Damon apart, how will Emily feel when she realizes her boyfriend and Kaylie have grown closer?
