Totally Spies Wiki

Futureshock! is episode 2 of Season 4.



During an after school cheerleading practice, Mandy breaks a nail and David offers her the chance to work as a school TV reporter while her nail grows back. Meanwhile, during a clean up of Jerry's office, Alex discovers a gadget that is actually a time machine which accidentally sends the spies 20 years into the future.

While in the future, they uncover the horrifying truth: Mandy rules Beverly Hills and she plans to "Mandify" everyone on the planet. Teaming up with their future selves, the girls must stop Mandy and return to the past. They go to the future WOOHP, and later return by using the time machine after defeating Mandy.

In the end, the spies put a Super Nail Enhancing Polish (an instant re-grow nail polish) in Clover's locker. Mandy overhears them talking, sneaks in and takes it. With her nails restored, she declines the TV reporter job, claiming she has better things to do now that she is "back in form".
