Star-Crossed Spoilers: Tensions Rise Between Julia and Emery

by Shilo Adams / March 7, 2014

star-crossedNow that Julia and Emery have entered the wide world of high school, they’re going to need each other more than ever. While their friendship was the reason they had the motivation to make it through their medical ailments, they were bound to grow closer due to the proximity of being in the hospital and going through similar things during treatment. What’s more complicated, though, is keeping tethered to someone you care about while getting bombarded with life experiences you were previously denied, keeping a part of yourself that you liked while growing and evolving as a person. With Julia unable to tell Emery about Roman giving her the cyper (and curing her at the Arrival Day celebration), their once sturdy friendship is going to be stressed at a time when Emery needs someone to lean on more than ever. If Julia isn’t the one that she turns to, who will it be instead?

Listed below are the dates, titles, and descriptions of the next three episodes of Star-Crossed.

Monday, March 10th – “And Left No Friendly Drop”
Roman (Matt Lanter) is furious when the sector guards ransack his family’s pod looking for restricted technology. However, he is taken aback when his mother (guest star Susan Walters) shows him a secret cell phone she found hidden in his late father’s things. Roman takes the phone to school in hopes of retrieving the data and finding out what his father was hiding. Turning to a friend he trusts, Roman asks Julia (Malese Jow) for help and she introduces him to Lukas (Titus Makin, Jr.), a tech genius. Emery (Aimee Teegarden) notices Roman’s newfound closeness to Julia, but since Julia had promised to keep Roman’s secret, she deflects Emery’s questions, causing tensions between the friends. Grayson (Grey Damon) asks Emery to forgive him for the incident at the sector, but she’s not sure she can trust him. Meanwhile, with Emery’s encouragement, and under Teri’s (Chelsea Gilligan) watchful eye, Sophia (guest star Brina Palencia) decides to join the swim team and blows everyone away with her speed. Unfortunately, not everyone is thrilled to have Sophia on the team and when she is poisoned by rivals, an all-out brawl ensues. The Trags give Drake (Greg Finley) a mission.

Monday, March 17th – “Dreamers Often Lie”
When Gloria (guest star Victoria Platt) tells the Atrian Seven they are allowed to spend some time outside their sector, Roman sees it as an opportunity to further investigate his father’s mysterious past and makes a stunning discovery. Emery and Grayson go out on a date, but their night is ruined after Eric (guest star Jesse Luken) calls Grayson for help and ends up putting everyone in danger. Drake mistakes Taylor (Natalie Hall) for an undercover Trag, and Lukas makes his move on Sophia. Meanwhile, Teri tries to take over Drake’s mission.

Monday, March 24th – “Stabbed with a White Wench’s Black Eye”
When Emery is confronted by a tabloid photographer (guest star Jabari Thomas) with video of her talking about cyper, she enlists Julia’s help to find a replacement story for him. Meanwhile, Drake tells Roman that Grayson’s parents are the leaders of the Red Hawks. When Grayson’s parents throw a big charity ball at their house, Drake makes plans to go, at Vega’s request, to undertake an important mission. Roman goes to the party to make sure Drake stays out of trouble, but gets caught in the middle of a kidnapping scheme.

Star-Crossed airs Mondays at 8:00 on The CW.

Will Emery figure out the real reason for Julia’s closeness with Roman? Can Grayson keep his affiliation with the Red Hawks under wraps for much longer? What will Roman discover about his father’s life that’s so shocking?
