Official summary
Note: this summary has been translated by a fan, and is therefore unofficial.

While Odd thinks he's the sole winner of the jackpot in the national lottery, he must in reality share his win with millions of other winners. For Jeremy this computer bug is a sign of XANA. But this attack is but a diversion hiding a much more serious problem: XANA has infected the Skid with a virus. And on this Friday the 13th, everything is against Odd. Is it his lucky day?

Detailed summary
Odd is on top of the world. He’s just won the jackpot in the lottery. The date of Friday the 13th on which he chose to play seems not to be so unlucky after all. Excited about such luck, he decides to follow Samantha to patch things up with her. But when she leaves the school, Odd is stopped at the gate by Jim. Boarders are not permitted to leave campus!

Jeremy and the others however can’t believe this miracle. They check the Internet: the number of lottery winners is multiplying all over Europe. It doesn’t take long for the organisers of the event to cancel it. The heroes see it as a potential sign of XANA. They decide to go to the factory. And a tower is indeed activated in Sector Five!
After all the heroes but Odd take the big plunge, they’re confronted by two Mantas in Sector Five’s labyrinth. The two boys stay back while the ladies head to the tower. The Mantas, though fast, can’t escape the violent attack by the two Lyoko Warriors. The attack is ended when Yumi enters the Code Lyoko…and the bugs in the lottery disappear as the tower’s red halo does.

When they get back to the factory, the girls have a go at the boys for their behaviour and lack of team spirit. Odd emerges from the lift as the boys take a beating. He feels defeated. He’d learnt of the cancellation of the lottery…but he’s already ordered an immense quantity of flowers for Samantha…and he has no money to pay the bill.

An alert interrupts the heroes’ discussion. XANA is attacking the Skid. The lottery attack was just a diversion. With its activated tower, XANA had time to infect the Skidbladnir with a virus to damage it badly.
Odd is the only one who can be virtualised immediately, he must go in. He takes the controls of the vessel. It’s imperative to detach the docking mechanism and leave the garage to limit the damage by the artificial intelligence. Odd doesn’t feel very reassured. He’s not very accustomed to driving the submarine. He still does what Jeremy says however, the genius determined to save his invention.

Meanwhile, Yumi goes back to the school to cancel Odd’s order of roses. But the seller refuses.

Jeremy and Aelita combine their efforts well, but nothing works. The Skid’s infection progresses. The blond of the group decides to call Laura to help, much to Aelita’s disdain. But the situation is too critical: if the Skid is destroyed, the heroes will lose access to the Cortex and won’t be able to deactivate towers there. Plus, the Skid’s functions are faltering, threatening to fall into the Digital Sea at any moment, taking Odd along with it. The boy is having difficulty following Jeremy and Aelita’s instructions, who are asking him to do numerous things on the controls of the ship.
Laura arrives to help. Odd’s hesitations are making progress incredibly slow-moving. The Skid ends up losing its shield. Jeremy proposes they send Laura to Lyoko, directly on board the ship to fix everything and save it. The blonde becomes very excited as she goes down to the scanner room…but just before being virtualised, Aelita manages to dictate to Odd what he must do and the ship is saved.

When they get back to Kadic, Odd sits alone with the flowers and his debt. His friends bring Samantha to him as a consolation prize of sorts. His morale slightly boosted, all that remains is Della Robbia finding how to pay for it all.

- Visited Sectors: Sector Five

About the characters

- Third appearance of Samantha in Code Lyoko Evolution. We learn that she's not a boarder.

About errors

- Odd says he's only driven the Skidbladnir once. In actual fact he's driven it twice: once in episode 79 “Bragging Rights” and in episode 92 “Cold Sweat”.

- Samantha seems to not be a boarder, seen leaving Kadic and not stopped by Jim like Odd was. This contradicts episode 7 “Countdown” when she mentioned that she was enrolled at Kadic by her parents as a boarder due to her behaviour.

About the series

- French title: Vendredi 13

- First appearance of Mantas in Evolution. First time in the series that they appear in the labyrinth of Sector Five.
- First time in the series that two people float up to the top floor of the tower together.
- Third time in the series that Odd drives the Skidbladnir. He said however that he's only driven it once before. See the errors section above.
- First time in the series that Jeremy mentions the possibility of virtualising someone directly into the Skid.
- The image of the photo in episode 1 “XANA 2.0” to introduce Yumi was an extract from this episode.

Odd: Stop it… 24…
Ulrich: Oh no! Don't tell me you're playing?
Odd: All my savings! … 36… It's Friday the 13th. I have a good feeling, I'm sure Lady Luck will smile down on me… 17…
Jeremy: Yeah with a chance of one in 67 million of finding the right numbers.
Odd: Yeah, that's why I took every precaution… (holds up a horseshoe) 45…
Aelita: Sure! With that, you're sure to win!

Jeremy: Poor guy.
Ulrich: Yeah, all his savings.
Odd: …I won. I won, guys! I won, guys! I won, I won, guys! I won. I won! Samantha, where are you? You'll never guess what happened!

Odd: Sam! Hey, Sam!
Jim: Della Robbia! What do you see here?
Odd: Uh, your finger, sir.
Jim: This is the line. Here, that's not good. There, that's ok.
Odd: Ok, can I go?
Jim: It seemed to me that you were a boarder, Della Robbia.
Odd: Yes, but that's going to change because I won.
Jim: You won? You've certainly won the right to do an about turn and go back onto the school grounds. And if you insist, you can win a few hours of detention.

William: The jackpot… Something you'd dream of, right? What would you do if you hit paydirt?
Ulrich: No chance of that, I don't gamble.
William: So you don't even wonder a little bit? And you, Yumi? What would you do with the money if you won the lotto?
Yumi: I'd give it all to charity.
William: You wouldn't even keep one or two little millions for yourself?
Yumi: Not even a cent.

Jeremy: The tower's not too far.
Ulrich: Neither are the Mantas!

William: They did it. Jeremy, you can go back.
Ulrich: I can devirtualise you if you want.
William: Now that is something you'd dream of!
Jeremy: Pff, two cocks. You there, chicks? I mean, girls!

Jeremy (to Ulrich and William): As for you two…
Aelita: You were being stupid…
Yumi: Childish…
Aelita: Dangerous…
Yumi: Selfish.
William: We were good.
Ulrich: Excellent, even!

Odd: I'm ruined. I'm ruined!
Ulrich: You can't be ruined, you didn't even win!
Odd: I know that now, but I didn't know that when I ordered a thousand red roses for Samantha.
Ulrich: A thousand?!
Odd: You can't put a price on love…

Jeremy: I can't bring him back, but I gotta do the opposite and virtualise someone onto the Skid.
Aelita: But nobody can be virtualised anymore, you know that.
Jeremy: You're forgetting someone. Someone capable of reprogramming the Skid in record time.
Laura: Me? I'll become a Lyoko Warrior?

Entries in the Lyoko TNV

Ulrich: Of course I dream. But of other things…

Yumi: The sound of Mantas… Brrr… It makes a chill run up my spine!

William: Being on the backs of these creatures reminds me of bad memories…

Odd: Sometimes I tell myself that my friends don't understand my problems… I think they're lacking a bit of romance, actually ;)

Odd: Go! Joysticks, I know them like the back of my hand…

Odd: Frankly I prefer driving the Megapod. Much more fun than this old, sick Skid!

Odd: Aelita and Jeremy need Laura? It's official: I can start freaking out now!

Odd: What's cool about Laura is that she doesn't talk about herself at all. :-/

Odd: Shame, I really do wonder what Laura would look like virtualised!
