McKeyla McAlister receives a new mission. She transfers to a school in Maywood Glen, where she bumps into two girls, Camryn and Bryden. A computer AI program in her notebook, A.D.I.S.N., accidentally speaks in front of the girls, which causes them to become suspicious. Meanwhile, Space Inc. receives an anonymous phone call threatening them with serious consequences for everyone if they don't cancel Prince Xander's space flight. Camryn's dad remembers that he left his laptop closed at the office, but when he went back in the morning, it was open. The girls suspect McKeyla is involved, and ask Adrienne to help them get the fingerprint from the laptop. They steal McKeyla's pen and manage to get a partial fingerprint match. They follow her, but shortly, McKeyla notices that they had given her a camera pen and catches the girls spying on her. They get into the house before she can stop them, and they meet McKeyla's boss, the Quail, who is a member of NOV8. She reveals that they are trying to protect the prince, and invites the girls to join McKeyla in the mission.
22"Secret Agenting"Michael YounesiJordana ArkinAugust 7, 2015 (2015-08-07)
McKeyla is doubting that the girls can take the job seriously enough, and would prefer working alone, but NOV8 wants her to have extra support due to the threat against the prince. McKeyla wants the girls to show her their skills. Adrienne makes a volcano cake. Bryden takes a picture of McKeyla and hacks into her lab's wireless system to display it on every screen in the lab. Camryn makes a "portable police scanner with added features", which they use to locate the prince. The girls notice a suspicious car, and manage to distract the guards and break into the facility where they're keeping the prince. They warn the prince that someone might be trying to kidnap him, and they take him to Bryden's house. NOV8 discovers that the prince's capsule will come close to a U.S. government cyber-satellite at the peak of his flight. Meanwhile, their location is discovered because Bryden tweeted from there, so they take the prince to a NOV8 safe house. Later, they find out that the logo they saw on the car belongs to a cyber security company called Black Star. A few minutes later, the girls get distracted and the prince disappears.
33"Smart Is the New Cool"Michael YounesiJordana ArkinAugust 7, 2015 (2015-08-07)
The girls research the organization called Black Star, and interrogate one of their top agents, who believes that they are doing wrong but is too scared to turn them in to the authorities. It turns out that they were not trying to kidnap the prince at all, but instead they are using his luggage to store a device that can be used to hack into a government satellite. It will allow Black Star to access each and every person's personal data, such as email, texting, and other information that they can then sell for billions of dollars. The four sneak into the launch site, find the device inside the prince's luggage, and destroy it before they are caught by security. Black Star's head, Darone, is caught and Jillian, the prince's assistant, is revealed to be working for them out of contempt that the prince can boss her around and she can do nothing about it, and sent to jail as well. In the end, the prince goes to space and he sends the girls a Snapchat from space, and McKeyla is given permission from the Quail to stay at Maywood Glen as her base. She is shown to be attending school with her friends.

A.D.I.S.N is able to bribe Miles into revealing Max's location. The girls sneak inside of the Young Voices Awards Ceremony when they pose undercover as a band. When Bryden goes to accept her award, she exposes Stone to the audience. In retaliation, Stone begins to exhale toxin fumes into the room where Max is being held hostage. Bryden and Adrienne work to cut off Stone's water from under Adele's farm while Maddy and McKeyla attempt to rescue Max. McKeyla spots a welding machine, and is later seen attempting to weaken the support beam to cave in the roof with Max above. Maddy and McKeyla fight off No Regrets and Stone, which ends with Max's rescue. Stone is taken to jail while Max emotionally reunites with the Quail, who's name is revealed to be Molly. Bryden apologizes to Cameryn and Ember for rebuffing their suspicions about Stone. McKeyla reconciles with Kyle, who's apology has been unknowingly live-streamed to the audience. The two kiss, and shortly after, a montage of all of the girls' celebratory moments are shown, ending with the girls' own in the lab.
