Kendall, James, Carlos, and Logan are on their plane ride to London, their first stop for their tour. They finally start off as they join Penny in a black spy van with an AI, while Gustavo and Kelly worry about what the boys are up to like causing trouble while they are away from them.

Meanwhile, Gustavo and Kelly are mad at for the boys being late for their soundcheck rehearsal, and end up doing their best to find them. Meanwhile, for the storyline of Katie and Mrs. Knight, they were having their pastime with the Duke Of Bath which Katie really wants her mom to fall in love with over the pastime so Katie can become a princess like in her dream. While everyone's busy, (Gustavo and Kelly being tortured at the HQ) and (Katie and Mrs. Knight having pastime with the Duke Of Bath), the guys, including Penny disguise themselves so they could get past Moon's crew through the park so they could carefully get to the soundcheck. They don't really get to the park safely-they get into problems, like being chased by fans, being chased by a dog, and more. After the boys finish their soundcheck, they meet up with Penny backstage and rush to the field where Moon's helicopter landed. However, only the boys see Moon, Penny wants to assault Moon to make sure he losses.

The MI6 Agency figure out Moon's plan and try to stop him but can't because Moon is jamming communication signals so no one gets in his way. After the boys manage to defeat Moon and save Katie, the MI6 agents arrive at the scene to give the boys a helicopter ride to Hyde Park just in time for the boys to finally start their world tour.

After finished their first tour concert, Gustavo finally allowed the boys to go anywhere, including of visiting every single tourist spot in London. As the boys realized they don't have a ride, Penny and Agent Lane coming back and offered them a ride. As the boys agreed to ride one more time, they ride off and disappear into the night.
