— Nina to Paige
On the eve of the big “Locked” cast announcement party, Paige is more nervous about telling her parents the truth about snagging her dream role than the actual event. With her parents set on her education taking priority, she tries to find a way to convince them – and herself – that she can do both. Meanwhile, the gossip is still swirling about Rainer and Jordan’s fight over Tangey, and Nina is determined to shut it down so it won’t hurt the film.
- The title is a play-on-words of the phrase "a star is born", which refers to Paige's rising fame. The title also hints at Paige either choosing between school or the film, and her newfound feelings for Rainer and Jake.
- The initial title of the episode was "A Star is Born" but was later changed.
