Ally to Austin

"Road Trips & Reunions" is the first episode of Season 3 of Austin & Ally and the 46th episode overall. It first aired on October 27th, 2013 to 3.283 million viewers.[1]


After missing most of Austin's tour to focus on her music career in Miami, Ally longs for her friends and decides to catch Austin’s performance in Portland. Ally barely makes it on time, and is now torn between continuing to work on her own music, or joining her friends for the last leg of Austin’s tour.[2]

Episode Summary

The episode starts out with Ally standing behind the counter of Sonic Boom; she is caught by surprise and happiness when she sees Trish and Dez in the doorway. She hugs both of them and tells Trish that, although she has written and completed 6 songs, she has failed to complete other songs. Right when she is about to name the cause, however, Austin calls her name. She says his name in awe; they then run up to each other before hugging and twirling each other. Lester then breaks her out of her trance; she realizes that the Austin she was twirling was really Frank the delivery guy. Lester discusses his concern over Ally's hallucinations -- she dismisses them at first, but then she sees Austin in a Tim's Square Pizza delivery outfit, Austin as one of her students, Austin as an elderly lady and even her own dad -- and Ally sadly agrees.

Meanwhile, Austin is not doing any better -- after finishing up one of his shows, he thinks that he sees Ally and runs up to hug her, but it is really a security guard. Later on, Ally talks to them via mobile devices and, after a bit of coaxing and eloquence, Ally agrees to visit them for the weekend in Portland to watch Austin's next concert. She gets out at the wrong airport, however -- since she goes to Portland, Maine, while Austin, Trish and Dez are in Portland, Oregon -- but manages to raise enough money by performing an acoustic version of The Me That You Don't See.

Meanwhile, when Dez rushes into the bathroom before Austin, Austin sleepily goes to the bathroom at the rest stop. He accidentally goes onto the wrong bus, as Ally, Trish and Dez discover when they try to surprise him with Ally's early arrival. After doing favors for the Buttercups, Lulu lets Austin use his phone, and he arranges to go to Washington and meet up with them. However, he ends up in Washington, D.C., while his friends are in Seattle, Washington. By the time he arrives, he is twenty minutes late for his concert. He gives Ally a big hug, and it takes Trish to break them up and get him performing.

He stops his show twice -- both times to discuss with Ally how she has to go to a meeting with Ronnie Ramone on Monday -- before Ally finally says that, since Austin is a good influence on her song writing, she can reschedule the meeting so that she can arrive with finished songs. They hug again before Trish reminds Austin that 10,000 fans are waiting for him to perform.

At the end of the episode, Trish, Austin and Dez wake up and open the curtains to Ally's bed -- and promptly discover that Lulu the Buttercup has taken her spot. Meanwhile, Ally finds herself on the same bus as the rest of the Buttercups.
