Rock Bottom? is the twenty-third episode of Season 1 of Code Lyoko.

Plot

Odd, Ulrich and Jeremie are once again the only students staying at Kadic during the long weekend. During the recess, Jeremie announces he has problems with connecting to Lyoko. Yumi says she will organize a party at her residence. While Ulrich fools around by sliding in the Dormitory corridor, Jim finds them and is angry.

In the meantime, Odd finds his crush at the academy, Samantha Knight, also known as Sam, who is from another school. Odd chose her to be a DJ for the party, and she agrees. Jeremie finally manages to connect to Lyoko and Aelita communicates with him, pointing out that the connection problems are the result of Lyoko constantly traveling through the Network. After Odd flirts with Sam, she asks him to go to the computer lab together. Once they arrive, he finds out she is trying to steal a laptop good enough for mixing music, since she currently can't afford one at the moment. Unfortunately, Jim enters the room and Sam hides herself. Thinking Odd intended to steal the laptop, he drags him to the secretary room and locks the computer lab door.

At the secretary room, Jim refuses to listen to Odd. In the meantime, X.A.N.A. activates a Tower in the Mountain Region and uses it to generate a Spectre. It dives into the ground. Samantha listens to strange sounds from the outside while unsuccessfully trying to get out. Odd, Ulrich and Jeremie notice that the academy buildings begin to sink into the ground, that became gelatinous and muddy thanks to X.A.N.A. Yumi receives a phone call while Sam notices the academy is sinking, also noticing the danger of suffocation. The ground slowly swallows the Science and Dormitory Buildings, with Jim being in his room, seemingly unaware of what is going on. Jeremie goes to the Factory while Odd and Ulrich are going to try to save Samantha. The city sinks too.

Aelita notices X.A.N.A.'s Pulsations while Yumi arrives to the factory. Odd and Ulrich, meanwhile, try to connect the Dormitory Building and Science Building using rope race technique. Jeremie virtualizes Yumi, who lands a little bit roughly because of the connection problems. Ulrich and Odd manage to save Samantha and they break through the door and escape. Jim finally is aware of the academy sinking, while Yumi and Aelita are confronted by two Hornets. Jim's room is flooding with soil.

Yumi is devirtualized and Aelita uses her Creativity to create a protective envelope for herself. Samantha, in order to be safe, is taken to the Factory. Jeremie virtualizes Odd and Ulrich to protect Aelita. Ulrich gets devirtualized while destroying the Hornet, and on Earth Jim hides in the closet. Aelita manages to deactivate the Tower and save Jim from suffocation. Jeremie launches a Time Reversion.

Starting over again, Odd takes Sam to Jeremie’s room, who explains how to do what she wanted without having to steal equipment as Odd looks on, amused.
