Ronda Roberts High Heel Samurai:
High Heel Samurai Act 3
August 1, 2008
The stakes of the illegal street fighting competition are raised in the third part of the pilot. Here, we meet police officers Jack (Brandon Stumpf) and Frank (Drew Cooper). They are concerned that Guerrieri is back and that Mia is running it in order to make a huge chunk of cash. Each person accepted into the finals has to pay the hefty sum of ten-thousand dollars – making it so that Mia (Judith Kalaora) stands to make $250,000 on the fights and that the winner of the competition will make the same amount. Naturally, this is quite a bit of money to be changing hands over a street fight so the cops want to go under-cover in order to bust up the competition. In order to do this, Jack will be the one to enter the fighting ring.

Meanwhile, eager John (Paul Drechsler-Martel) comes by to see Tori (Lauren Guglielmello) – half aiming to find out what the final vote will be. She tells him that they haven’t voted yet and she cannot reveal that information. In return, he asks her to a dance at their school. She shoots him down saying that she’s not interested in seeing anyone at the moment. Perhaps she means this, but perhaps she wants to stave off a potentially awkward situation. A few moments later, Mia chides her for her relationship with one of the competitors – emphasizing the fact that the girls must train hard and lead double lives in order to pull it off.

With a potential income of half a million dollars, it would seem then that the stakes are quite high for Mia –especially if she wins. It makes sense that she would want to keep bias out of judging – but will Tori be able to vote fairly after John asked her out to the dance? As the pace of this web show picks up, we are left with more and more questions unanswered.
