Episode Guide

Bye Bye Nikki? Part 2 is the second part of the two-part series finale of 6teen. This episode was shown alongside "Bye Bye Nikki? Part 1" on February 11, 2010, on Teletoon, as a single show. In the United States, however, it aired on June 21, 2010, after Part 1 was shown the previous week. Nikki is moving to Iqaluit, so the gang decides to throw her the greatest going away party ever. Meanwhile, Jude tries to find out what it's like to live without nighttime.


Main Plot

Nikki and her parents are scouting houses in Iqaluit while her friends worry about her. Jonesy in particular is a wreck, so worried that he can't eat or sleep–although he proves the former false when he bites into Jude's burrito. However, Nikki soon calls with news, and her friends huddle around to hear. Apparently, Iqaluit is full of snow that just blows and blows.

Later, Nikki comes back to the mall, and disseminates more news. Iqaluit is cold and flat. The sun almost never comes up in the winter, and almost never goes down in the summer. At this last piece of information, Jude's eyes light up, as he thinks that an endless day means an endless party. Nikki has already moved on, however, as her parents have made her a bargain: if Nikki can come up with 100 reasons not to move before moving day comes, they won't. She's already up to 23 reasons, but isn't sure that she'll be able to make 100.

Jen and Caitlin decide to take her out for comfort food while they try to come up with more reasons. They take her to El Sporto's for food and friendship, and Caitlin brings up a reason she thought of: Iqaluit probably doesn't have an Albatross & Finch. According to Nikki, though, it's much worse than that: Iqaluit doesn't even have a mall!

That night, she's in the Masterson-Garcia house, talking to her boyfriend. Nikki is of the opinion that, if she moves, they should agree to break up, as she doesn't want them to end up hating each other if a long-distance relationship goes sour. Jonesy reluctantly agrees to the deal, and they know that if worst comes to worst, at least they'll still be able to date other people when they're separated.

The next day, Nikki finds out that Jude has rigged up a hat of lights to try and find out what eternal day is like. However, she has work to do, so she heads off to the Khaki Barn. After she leaves, Jonesy puts his new plan to keep Nikki around into effect: tell her parents lies about Iqaluit so that they won't want to move. Unfortunately for his plan, Nikki's parents call her to ask about the rumors, and she tells them that the rumors are obviously crank calls.

That night, she's in the Masterson-Garcia home again, listening to music in Jen's room with Jonesy. However, the music on the radio isn't any good, so Jonesy suggests that they "make their own music." Nikki and Jonesy begin making out, but Jen bursts into the room. Soon an argument starts between the three about where Nikki and Jonesy are allowed to kiss, with Jonesy settling it by claiming that since they'll be rooming together, it's Nikki's room as well as Jen's.

The next day, Nikki is up to seventy-eight reasons but is of the opinion that there's no way she'll complete the list by that night. Jen takes this opportunity to snipe at Nikki for making out with Jonesy in her room, and an argument breaks out. Caitlin calms it down by reminding them that they're all friends, but Nikki points out that this won't be the case if she and Jen keep rooming together. Even though they make good friends, they make horrible roommates. The three embrace, but sadly accept that Nikki will really be moving.

Nikki realizes that there's still one good thing about her moving away, and invites her friends to watch. She then proceeds to stand on the counter at the Khaki Barn and insult all the customers, all the clothes, and most especially Chrissy for pushing conformity on everyone. Having finished her rant, she definitively quits her job for the very last time.

The gang then realizes that they need to plan her a going-away party. Upon hearing this, Jen reveals that she prepared for this just in case by booking Grind Me. She then gives instructions to the rest of the group: Jonesy will get the word out, Jude will keep Nikki away from Grind Me, and Caitlin and Wyatt will make an excellent video to send her off with well-wishes from everyone.

That night, Nikki is on her way to have her final coffee at the mall and wants to share it with her friends, but none of them are picking up their phones. She gets within range of the store, but that's when Wyatt notices that Nikki is nearby. Because an asleep Jude is being dragged off by Ron, Jen sends Wyatt and Caitlin out to stall her so that the party can finish getting set up. They manage to do this, and when they enter the store, everyone cheers for Nikki while a video where many people in the mall wish her goodbye plays.

After the video ends, Nikki's friends give her a laptop so that they can always stay connected. Nikki is astounded by her friends' generosity, and reveals that she has presents for all of them too. For Caitlin, Nikki has the cut-up credit card that forced Caitlin to get a job; she's giving it to her to remind her that she can rise above any tribulations life puts on her. For Jen, she has the flier for Jen's first snowboarding competition, to remind Jen to never give up on her dreams. For Wyatt, she has a copy of the first demo he made; she's not going to give it back, but she wants him to know that she still listens to it. For Jude, she has a woolen hat, with her reasoning being that Jude is the only one who can pull such a look off. And finally, for Jonesy, she wants him to know that no matter what happens, she'll always love him.

At this declaration, Jonesy runs over and gives her a hug, and the rest of her friends join in. As they hug, a slow, sad version of the theme plays, with a montage of good memories playing over it.

When the hug breaks up, Mr. and Mrs. Wong take the stage in the corner of the coffee shop with an announcement: the going-away party is over. Nikki is let down until the Wongs add some extra information: it's instead going to be a "staying-here" party! This is because the bonds that Nikki has with her friends are so strong that her parents are convinced that they should stay in the area for Nikki. At first, everyone is overjoyed to hear this, especially Nikki. However, when Nikki looks back at the stage, she sees her father's shoulders slump, as he realizes he'll be going back to a job he hates. Upon seeing this, Nikki stops them, as she doesn't think that this is right. Her parents have sacrificed a lot for her; she can afford to sacrifice something for them so that her father can follow his dreams. Her friends are behind her, and Nikki says that she'll move on one condition: her father pays for unlimited texting and phone calls for her and all of her friends. Her dad agrees, and Nikki turns back to her friends for one last goodbye hug, which she beckons her parents into as well.

The next day, the remaining five are seated around the table, noting that Nikki should be on the plane at that moment. Jonesy is feeling horrible, as he doesn't think he should have broken up with Nikki. His friends agree, and Jonesy calls, but gets her voicemail, because Nikki is calling him. Upon hearing that Jonesy is only getting voicemail, all of the friends pull together and call Nikki. Eventually, though, Jonesy and Nikki connect, and admit to each other that they don't want to break up. With this done, Nikki and Jonesy hang up, as her plane is taking off. As Nikki flies away, Jonesy contemplates that maybe everything will be okay, and the camera pans out to show that life is going on as usual in the mall, right down to to Ron arresting a teenager.

Sub-Plot: Jude's Eternal Day

After Nikki mentions that the sun almost never goes down in summer, Jude decides to rig up a ring of lights around his face to ensure an eternal day for him. However, he's only able to last two-and-a-half days before passing out from exhaustion, and when he wakes he finds that he's in mall jail. Ron has put him there for his trespassing due to his homeless situation.

Jude has to get out to see Nikki off, so he pleads with Ron, reminding the mall cop what it's like to be sixteen. He reminds the man that life becomes strange as your responsibilities multiply and everything changes. And yet, through all this, your friends are all around, and are the most important people in your life. And that one of them is moving for him, and he has to see her off. This speech convinces Ron, and the adult breaks down in tears and releases Jude from mall jail to attend Nikki's going-away party.
