The next day, Nancy is with the other members of the Digest team when Caitlin hands in her article, only for Mr. Raditch to say that it cannot be published. Later on, Nancy asks Caitlin what she's writing for the next issue of the Digest.

When Caitlin suggests she write about sexism, Nancy looks apprehensive but reminds Caitlin that the article just needs to be two hundred words.

After Mr. Raditch's English exam, Nancy was standing at the lockers with B.L.T. and Michelle discussing the exam.

Michelle asks Nancy about another question, and B.L.T. and Wheels both realize they got that question wrong as well.
