But while Cole works with James to perfect his DJ skills, Cole also grows close to James' girlfriend, Sophie (Emily Ratajkowski), leading to tension between Cole and James. To make matters worse, Ollie, Squirrel and Mason get involved with a real estate venture with Paige (Jon Bernthal), and grow distant from Cole.
