SkyVolt-A-Rooney is the nineteenth episode in Season 3 of Liv and Maddie[1] and is part 1 of the two part Season 3 finale. It aired on June 5th, 2016.


Liv realizes that Voltage is moving their set to Los Angeles and she must pick to either move to California with the show or stay home and go to college with Maddie. Joey finally realizes that he likes Willow back and he needs to tell her this before she leaves to California for training camp.


The episode starts with Liv and Maddie in their caps and gowns with the others and Diggie. Then Willow shows up and tells them all that she leaves to California tomorrow and that she came over to say goodbye, especially to Joey. She picks Joey up for a big hug and she tells him that she doesn't know when she will see him again, which makes Joey think for a second. Before she leaves she blows a kiss to Joey who jokingly catches it. When she leaves, Joey looks upset about this and puts the kiss in his pocket, and then Karen talks about matching bathing suits for Maddie and Liv.

Karen and Parker go into the kitchen and they see Joey sitting at the table which has a pile of toast on it and Joey keeps looking at a piece of toast. He tells them that Willow's face is in every piece of toast he made. Karen tells Joey that it's possible that Willow leaving has made Joey realize that he has feelings for her. Joey doesn't agree with her and tells her that he feels the same way about her since they first met, but then he says to her that he now knows that she is really smart, super funny, and everything she did was just to make Joey happy. Then he realizes and admits to them that he does like Willow and that she could have been his high school "sweetheart". Parker tells him that he pushed her away and it's too late, but Karen says otherwise and tells Joey that Willow has to return her cap and gown to school the next day before she leaves. She tells Joey to go and tell her what he has to say. Joey feels that it's impossible and that since she flies out tomorrow that she won't be his high school "sweetheart" in the time that they have left, but Parker helps him to get Willow in the time they have left.
