Burbank, CA (April 26, 2011) - Emily faces a life-changing decision when it comes to her future as an Olympic gymnast, in "Requiem for a Dream," an all-new episode of ABC Family's original series "Make It or Break It" premiering Monday, May 2nd (9:00 - 10:00 PM ET/PT).
As an elite gymnast, Emily's life has always been dictated by her sport. With everything she's worked so hard for in jeopardy, she needs the support of her friends and family more than ever. But between Payson's anger at Emily for breaking the rules, Sasha's investment in her career and Kaylie's unexpected confession, Emily realizes there might be more to life than gymnastics. Further complicating matters, she learns that the NGO officially reinstated her to the U.S. World team, forcing her to make a decision about her future sooner than she would like. As Emily makes the toughest decision of her life, will she do what everyone expects, or will she find the courage to follow her heart?
Meanwhile, Summer struggles with her residual feelings for Sasha as she tries to build a life with Steve and Lauren.
