As Nikki sits backstage nursing her crippled hands, Tessa pops in holding her guitar and learns about the sound board problem that threatens to put the kibosh on the entire show. “Maybe the universe is trying to cut you a break,” Tessa suggests. “You won’t have to play through the pain after all.” Nikki has been insisting on performing come hell or high water, but might she take this opportunity to back out?
