In Stage Fright, Susie is excited to see Caitlin is back and can come to her sleepover. Later, Susie catches her in a daze again. Susie thinks Caitlin still might be sick, but Caitlin insists she's fine. Caitlin overhears her parents talking about her epilepsy. As she grabs her bag for the sleepover, she forgets her medicine.

Caitlin, Susie, Kathleen, Melanie and Jyoti are at the sleepover. They are doing a seance, and when they turn on the lights, Caitlin is dizzy. All of a sudden she has a seizure and the girls think she's joking. Susie then realizes she's having a seizure and takes action. The rest of the girls sit there, not knowing what to do.

The next day at school Caitlin tells Susie she's dropping out of the play. Susie tells Caitlin the real reason she's dropping out of the play is because Kathleen beat her for the lead.

In ...He's Back, Caitlin, Susie and Trish are seen standing nearby their lockers when they saw Lucy passing by reminding her that she was late again at turning in her pictures for the yearbook and that there was just a few more days left to do so. Lucy was rude to them about handing in her photo's late due to the shock of seeing Mr. Colby again. Next in her classroom, Alex Yankou reminded Caitlin and Susie that they needed $100 more to finish the yearbook so he suggested to her and Susie, a shoe shine day a dollar per shine, but she told him it wouldn't work out because everyone wore sneakers and sneakers don't need to be polished. Later that day after school, she was working with Susie on pictures for the yearbook when she suddenly had to get home early. She then left Susie alone not realizing Mr. Colby would be alone with her. Then the next day Alex suggested a walkathon to raise more money to finish the yearbook. Caitlin reminded him it was exam time and people didn't have time for a walkathon. Then finally she told Alex to just try doing what people had done the year before which was ask Doris Bell for a little more money.
