Ridley resurfaces with a newfound desire to become a Glitch Tech. Miko and High Five are delighted ... but they have no idea she's hiding something.


As her attempts to make a Glitch Tech gauntlet from scans of Miko and Five keep failing, Ridley instead upfront asks for one and is recruited by them. Despite Phil's insistence against it, Ridley wins him over with modded upgrades to BITT, and is put through the tutorial; she hacks the system to hyper fast forward and finish quickly. Ridley is taken on a Glitch Tech tour, and runs afoul of Mitch who drove by KS her win. Wanting to get back at Mitch, Ridley develops Glitch cloning code to stimulate their capture numbers and outperform Mitch, despite Five and Miko's hesitance; placing first on the leaderboard, Ridley's behavior easily informs Mitch what happened. As Five and Miko want to admit how they did it, Ridley has an episode seeing them 'turn' on her, so she releases all captured Glitches and absconds with her gauntlet. While Glitch Techs handle the break out, Ridley's guilt grows until she returns to get Mitch's help, modding his gauntlet to do bonus DPS. Afterward, Phil sadly orders Ridley to be reset by Mitch, who instead lets her go out of respect. Back at her house, Ridley uses a scan to fully replicate a gauntlet.
