Tonight is the 2 hour season finale of "Make It or Break It" on ABC Family.
In the episode, secrets, lies and jealousy threaten Team USA's gold medal dreams. The World's competition in Rio de Janeiro is fast approaching, yet the team is preoccupied by everything but gymnastics: Lauren fights for Max's attention while simultaneously trying to keep her involvement in Sasha's resignation a secret; Payson finds the perfect solution to her family's financial problems, with potentially costly consequences; and Kelly must choose between pleasing her mother and being a loyal teammate. Even Sasha is distracted by his feelings for Summer and news of her impending wedding. Through it all, team captain Kaylie tries to keep the peace among her teammates while growing increasingly uncomfortable with lying to the public about her anorexia - not only is keeping such a huge secret hurting her recovery, but it's also affecting her gymnastics.
When the team arrives in Rio, things go from bad to worse when the girls crumble under the seemingly insurmountable pressure. As the pettiness and in-fighting grow out-of-control, will Coach Belov be able to convince his team to believe in themselves and each other before it's too late, or will the girls have to kiss their medal aspirations goodbye?
We caught up with Ayla Kell, who plays Payson, recently at the Pastry launch event. She told us, "[There] is sooooo much that goes on. Not only do we have an epic incident, we also have a big competition in which it's kind of a ';make it or break it' point for us whether we move on towards the Olympics or are losing our dream."
Ayla also told us about her battle with the spandex uniforms and did you know she can do 7 pull ups? Catch the explosive two-hour season finale of ABC Family's original series, "Make It or Break It," premiering tonight, May 23rd (9:00 – 11:00 PM ET/PT).
