Official Paramount+ Synopsis


Filming iCarly

After filming a skit, Freddie reads out comments and sees that Carly's hater "iHateCarly57" has posted another negative comment with the signature line "Do better." Carly is bothered by their relentless hate, and decides to respond with "love and light", but it goes awry, so Carly arranges to meet this hater at Skybucks Coffee Bar.

Carly and Justin

At Skybucks Coffee Bar, Freddie and Spencer are in disguise and look around for potential suspects. Carly notices Nora and believes that she is her hater. However, Nora is excited to see Carly and reveals that she has changed her ways. Spencer approaches Nora armed with pepper spray and a taser, but accidentally tases and blinds himself instead. Carly orders the last banana nut muffin, much to the dismay of Justin, the man behind her. She offers him her muffin and the two begin chatting. Carly tells him about her web show and her mission to find her hater. Justin pretends to be unfamiliar with her web show but after Carly leaves, he mutters "do better," revealing that he is her hater.

Carly and Harper

Back at Carly and Harper's apartment, Carly makes a murder board with pictures of potantial suspects, including Millicent, Nora, Nevel, Mrs. Benson, Lewbert and Ms. Briggs.

During Carly's date with Justin, he tells her about his work designing homeless shelters and a girl who previously broke his heart. Nora, sitting at another table alone, decides to join them and makes violin noises. Afterwards, Carly tells Harper about her amazing date, and discovers that iHateCarly57 wrote a nice comment about her.

Carly invites Justin to her apartment and shows her his murder board. While he is in the bathroom, Carly discovers that Justin phone goes off every time Millicent likes iHateCarly57's comments, revealing that he is her hater. He explains that he only posted those hate comments because when he was 11, he sent a video to iCarly and it was never played on the show, so he held a grudge. However, he changed his mind about Carly after meeting her. Carly kicks him out, but later decides to forgive him and agrees to let him be on iCarly.

At the studio, they film a video of Justin performing his talent. Justin does a dramatic reading of a poem while making gestures and percussive noises. Carly, Freddie and Harper are disturbed by his performance.

While Carly and Freddie watch TV, Nora scales the side of Bushwell Plaza and crawls into Carly's apartment. Nora begs them not to tell her parents about her breaking in, and they kick her out.


Freddie helps Spencer with zumba

Spencer tries to attack Nora with pepper spray, but accidently sprays himself in his eyes, blinding both of them. Spencer convinces Freddie to help him until his eyesight returns by telling him that he gave him seed money for his first startup. Spencer first asks Freddie to describe the sunset to him, and then asks him to help him in the bathroom. Freddie also helps Spencer during his online zumba class, by helping him balance. Freddie has doubts about Spencer's blindness but he insists that he is indeed blind. Freddie leaves to get Spencer's drycleaning and is furious to find Spencer doing a crossword puzzle when he returns to get the dry cleaning ticket.

Spencer has a date with Sarah, a woman that he meets at the eyewash station in the emergency room. He is excited to see her for the first time as his vision has returned. However, while putting on cologne before their date, Spencer accidentally blinds himself again. He asks Freddie to help him during the date, but Freddie is still furious about being lied to and walks away. Spencer, believing that Freddie is still standing next to him, tells Freddie that he has forgotten "hot eye wash lady"'s name. He asks Freddie to pretend to be his butler, dig through her purse and look at her driver's license to find out her name. But unbeknownst to him, Sarah was standing next to him and heard what he said. She slaps him and leaves.
