"Sidekick Clio" is the fifty-second episode of the Disney Junior animated series, Sofia the First. It premiered on July 22, 2015, and is the final episode of the second season.

Plot

At Royal Prep, the students are giving Hildegard, who is going on vacation for a week, a going away party planned by Princess Clio. After putting her going away presents in her flying coach, Hildegard flies way, leaving Clio sad. In the auditorium, the students meet their new theater teacher, Miss Elodie. She announces that they are doing Hello Polly, a musical about a parrot searching for a runaway sister, and gives everyone lists of assignments and tells them that tryouts are Friday. Clio offers to help Sofia get ready for the play since she doesn't know what to do with herself with Hildegard gone.

Sofia arrives at the Royal Palace of Corinthia and discovers sides of Clio she has not shown because of Hildegard and, through a duet, discovers Clio's talents. Clio tells Sofia that she does everything Hildegard wants because she's her best friend. Hildegard has never let Clio do what she likes just because she herself does not like it. Sofia tells Clio that she should do something she wants to do and that just because Hildegard is her best friend, it does not mean Clio has to do everything Hildegard wants. Meanwhile, Roland enlists Cedric to help James with the stage effects, to the sorcerer's annoyance. Sofia gets Clio to sing in front of Miss Elodie who insists that she take part in the school play. However, Hildegard comes back early due to a warm spell in North Freezenberg. She is furious that Clio and Sofia are trying out for the play and demands that Clio choose between her and the play despite Sofia disagreeing. Predictably, Clio chooses Hildegard, to Sofia's disappointment.

Amber helps Sofia bring Hildegard and Clio inside the auditorium, where Hildegard is furious that Amber brought her in the theater, so Miss Elodie could get Clio to try out. Sofia tells Clio that she can make her own choices, but Hildegard insists that Clio cannot. However, fed up with being bossed around, Clio insists on trying out for the play much to Hildegard's chagrin. Hildegard protests that she and Clio do everything together, and Clio points out that they always do everything Hildegard wants to do, and now Clio wants to do her own thing. Hildegard is angry that Clio is doing her own thing, and storms off.  Amber follows and tells her that Clio has made her choice, and that now she has too choose if having a best friend is truly more important to her than always having things your way or not.

Clio does the play, having gotten the lead role of Polly, with Princess Kari playing Polly's sister Molly, and the play is a success. Hildegard arrives in time for the final number and, after the play, reconciles with Clio, telling her that from now on she doesn't have to do everything she does.
