Having entered into a deal with Midtown Sound, the girls and Carlotta must contend with upheavals at their new label. Meanwhile, after a harrowing stint in prison, Cotton must find a way to re-enter society as a convicted felon.

And, with Derek facing the possibility of never walking again, Alexandra must work to keep their romance alive, while balancing her own career goals.

Finally, the fate of Jahil remains decidedly unclear, following last season's shocking and explosive finale.

In the Season 2 premiere, "The Winner Takes It All", while still dealing with the repercussions of Hunter's death, Star goes to great lengths to assure that the group gets a release date for their album.
