Blocking is the fourth episode of the first season of Disney+ High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. It aired on November 29, 2019.


After Nini discovers that E.J. isn’t who she thinks he is, Ashlyn gets caught in the middle. Gina and E.J. team up as “wonderstudies,” and Ricky gets an unexpected visitor at home.


Nini confronts E.J. about stealing her phone; he expresses his belief that she still has feelings for Ricky. The pair argue before a blocking rehearsal, which results in the pair singing a strained rendition of "What I've Been Looking For" with E.J. stepping in for his understudy role. Miss Jenn disapproves of the cast not taking rehearsals seriously and implores for the students to resolve their personal issues. E.J. tries to apologize, but Nini blocks his phone number, deciding to break up with him. Ricky's mother returns home to reveal that she and his father are separating, and that she will be moving to Chicago. Ricky is discernibly hurt by the news and plans to stay at Big Red's for the night, before relocating to Nini's house after speaking with her mother, Carol. Nini comforts Ricky, and the two share a romantic moment, before she discovers that he has left the house. Nini laments the loss of her relationship and resurfacing feelings for Ricky, by writing the song "All I Want". Meanwhile, Gina devises a new plan to claim the lead role, by convincing E.J. to become her date to the upcoming homecoming dance.
