Make It Pop - Season 1
In the new season, the group is faced with bigger challenges and higher stakes and XO-IQ has yet to reunite after a number of setbacks; Corki (Erika Tham) is in danger of being removed from Mackendrick Prep by her father, Jodi (Louriza Tronco) is deciding if she should pursue her love of fashion, and now that Sun Hi (Megan Lee) is clashing with hotshot guitarist Linc, it looks like XO-IQ might be over.
Corki is very smart and clever. She is one who usually uses her brain when solving problems, in contrast to Sun Hi, who thinks and acts first. She is shown to be a very intelligent student in Mackendrick Prep, as shown when she says intelligent things that others cannot understand. Although Corki is very smart, sweet, and mysterious, she's still got some learning to do when it comes to being a teenager. Privately tutored until arriving at Mackendrick Prep, she isn't prepared for typical teen experiences, like crushes, school dances, concerts or anything else unexpected. She also seems to be quite camera shy. But as the series goes on, she starts to learn more and more about school life, and ends up enjoying it with her besties/bandmates in the process.She is also very obedient and faithful to the school rules, going so far to read the entire student rule handbook. Corki is known to be gullible and innocent at times, like when she thought that Valerie and the other cheerleaders liked her (and her friends/band members) and were nice. She is also known to be easily swayed and influenced by others, as shown when Valerie and the other cheerleaders persuaded her to join their group and become like them in less than a week. Corki is one who likes to keep her personal details private, for numerous reasons, those which have not been revealed in the show so far. She is one who will go to many lengths to conceal her identity and personal details. To her other band members/friends, she is very mysterious, and someone who likes to be in the shadow instead of the spotlight. Nevertheless, they accept her as their best friend, but can't help wondering what her personal life is like and what secrets she is hiding. Not much is known about Corki's outside life, but in the first episode, she is shown to have an overbearing father who wants to make sure she 'does well'. In many episodes on several occasions, Corki has mentioned her father by saying that he would disapprove of something, or saying that she needs to call him. She also seems to be very special in the school, as she was escorted by bodyguards after the school day in Rumors & Roommates for unknown reasons. Starting from episode 5 and onward, Corki is shown to be wearing a mask when she is preforming at the roller rink in fear that people will know who she is, and that it might affect her personal life, which may or may not involve her father. She wears it, hoping that no one will know her identity, and she can keep her personal life secret. But unfortunately, she becomes a big hit, nicknamed by the students, "Masked Girl" and is soon the instant subject of gossip in the school, with almost everyone speculating and wanting to find out who the mysterious masked girl is behind the mask. She becomes so famous that her face even comes up in the school newspaper headline, the title as, "Masked Girl Sells Out Roller Rink". Even then, she tries keeping her identity concealed from others, especially Jared Anderson, who is Masked Girl's #1 fan, much to Corki's dismay. Corki is occasionally seen talking with Jared Anderson, who seems to be a good friend of hers, and seems to have a crush on him, calling Jared kind in episode 2, Duet, and sighing his name dreamily after entering her bedroom in episode 6, Popular. This theory is eventually confirmed in episode 7, The Situation, when she tells Jared, grinning from ear to ear, that she likes his outfit and thinks everything is 'perfect', and when she is troubled, internally arguing with herself if she should reveal her identity as Masked Girl to Jared, and if he will still like her or even like LIKE her, or not like her if he knows, as Jared is shown to be intrigued with Masked Girl, even wearing a shirt with a mask and the words 'Masked Girl' on it. Corki is very talented, as shown to be a very good violinist, learning how to play since she was 4 years old, and playing a lovely melody in Duet and being praised by Jared soon after she finishes. She has also played the violin in the music video Spotlightz in Rumors and Roommates, playing in the music background. Corki is also shown to be skilled in understanding charades, understanding Sun Hi's gestures and movements when she had just lost her voice in episode 5.
THAM: I think that being exposed to so many different cultures definitely allows more insight into different cultures and different types of religion, as well as being in a lot of new schools and changing schools a lot has really helped me to explore different characters. I think that going into new schools so often has really helped me become a people person. I love to meet new people and I love to make friends.

Hank's parents - Nana and Pop-Pop Thunderman - are coming to visit the Thundermans. Pop-Pop's superpowers are Flight and Super Strength like Hank while Nana's superpower is Kindness. She makes people become very kind with a little pinch on the cheek.
Whenever the grandparents are in town, the Thunder Kids act their best to please them. They also usually hide Dr. Colosso in Max's Lair because Pop-Pop doesn't tolerate villains at all. Phoebe makes sure that everything is perfect because she believes that she is Pop-Pop's favorite. Pop-Pop and Nana arrive, bringing presents to the kids. Max and Phoebe get bluetooth wireless headphones while Billy, Nora and Chloe get ugly sweaters. With the grandparents watching over the twins, Hank and Barb fly to Paris for lunch. Nana takes the little kids to Splatburger while Pop-Pop is left home with the Thunder Twins.
In the Detention Zone, Phoebe finds Max, Colosso and other villains sitting in a room. There's a teacher called Lizzie teaching the villains the same lesson she teaches them everyday - How not to be a supervillain. Phoebe starts explaining to Max her plan of getting him out of there. But Lizzie notices them and takes away Phoebe's key using her lizard tongue. The twins try to explain to the teacher that there was a misunderstanding and that they're in fact superheroes and Sergeant Thunder's grandkids, but she refuses to believe them. To prove them wrong, she asks the villains in the room if they're all superheroes and if they're all Sergeant Thunder's grandkids. They all raise their hands, making it difficult for Phoebe and Max's argument. To punish the twins for being troublemakers in class, the teacher tells them to feed the class pet which is some sort of glowing monster.
While Pop-Pop is with the twins, Nana asks Nora, Billy and Chloe to meet her at Splatburger for lunch - and asks them to wear the sweaters she brought them. The kids don't want to tell her the truth that they don't like the ugly sweaters and hurt her feelings. So, they agree to wear the sweaters just this once to make her happy. As the kids enter Splatburger, everyone starts laughing at them. So, they back out slowly. Nora comes up with a plan. She says that they should throw their sweaters in the trash bin; and lie to Nana that a bully took them. Chloe praises Nora for her brilliant plan, and says that's why Nora is their leader.
Nora's plan works perfectly and Nana is convinced that a bully stole their sweaters. To complicate things, Mrs. Wong finds the sweaters and puts them on. Nana sees her wearing the sweaters and concludes that Mrs. Wong is the bully. She goes to confront Mrs. Wong about it and Mrs. Wong responds with her usual rudeness, making it look like she's guilty. Mrs. Wong calls the Thunder kids smelly and makes fun of Nana. To teach Mrs. Wong a kindness lesson, Nana pinches her on the cheek. Mrs. Wong suddenly turns into a very nice person. She tells Nana and the kids that the food is free. In fact, she tells everyone in the restaurant that the food is free. Chloe teleports out to get her parents because she knows how much Hank loves free food.
Filled with new songs, lots of laughs and heart, season two sees Sun Hi, Corki, Jodi and Caleb continue their coming-of-age journey. After their triumph with the school musical, the band XO-IQ is called upon to represent Mackendrick Prep at a high stakes battle of bands and a new musical rival emerges.
