Sole Searching is the second episode of Red Band Society's first season. It premiered on September 24th, 2014.


Jordi's surgery takes an unexpected turn, which sends Leo into a tailspin. Meanwhile, Kara's family tries to work their connections to help her get a heart, when what she really needs is right in front of them.


The episode begins with Charlie narrating, saying talking about the phrase "Walk a mile in someone else's shoes." He explains that the only way to feel empathy for someone else is to know your own feelings. He also says with being in a coma, feelings is all he has.

Leo and Dash are outside of the hospital, playing golf while Kara is criticizing them, telling them that their game is lame and stupid. Emma makes sure that Leo doesn't break his artificial leg doing this and also asks if he's supposed to be in the hospital right now and Kara calls her a "Mother hen." Leo talks about how hard it is to live without a leg and how Jordi is about to go through that pain. Kara doesn't care about this and she leaves. Nurse Jackson hears word about Leo waiting for Jordi to come out of his surgery when he should be working with his new leg and hears that it's Kenji's fault for letting him do so. Kenji explains himself by using a comparison of starving monkeys and their mothers. He says that it's best for Leo to be with Jordi because it's what keeps him comfort. Nurse Jackson tells him that if he doesn't start working with his new leg that like starving monkeys, he's going to die and takes off to go and get him.

While waiting for Jordi to come out of surgery, Leo and Dash look out the window and see a college nextdoor. At the college, everyone is partying because it's game day. Leo wishes that he could go there with them and Dash tells them that he hates those people because they're all exactly the same and doesn't want anything to do with them. Nuse Jackson comes and tells Leo that he needs to be training with his new leg and that the only reason he hates it, is because he hasn't practiced enough with it yet and that Jordi is going to be in surgery for a few hours and that there is no point in waiting out there. Leo explains that he needs to make it so that after surgery, Jordi will be the first face he sees and that it's important because they're friends. Nurse Jackson reschedueles him for 5:00 which is her final offer.

Jordi begins surgery and on his legs, he has explicitly written which leg he needs amputated on them. There is also a message from Emma written on one.

Brittany comes in and tells Emma that she needs to begin her weight gain test. Emma, who obviously has not gained another pound, goes and stuffs her pockets and shoes to make her appear as though she has gained a pound. She gets weighed on her test and Brittany falls for it and tells her how proud she is that she's done this. Meanwhile, Kara is on the treadmill and her friend is asking if she needs water and Kara tells her to shut up because she's being very annoying

Back in surgery, Jordi is put to sleep with the sleeping gas, and once he's comatose, he ends on in the comatose dream realm where he is seen playing the guitar. After that, Charlie is revealed to be there and he can physically interact with him. Charlie explains everything to him but Jordi soon after passes out and wakes up from his surgery to find out that he gets to keep his leg.
