Liv is told that the coveted role of Tristan in “Space Werewolves” has been narrowed down to herself and two other famous actors. To help her prepare for her audition, she has invited "Fangs" -- a girl who wrote a book about being raised by wolves -- to help get into her character. Fangs finds success with roughening up Liv, but struggles with teaching her to howl. Meanwhile, Maddie hopes for more alone time with Diggie. When Joey discovers that Diggie has signed them up for breakdancing lessons, Maddie suggests Joey attend them instead. [1]
