"Goodbye Zoey?" was the first Zoey 101 episode to air after the announcement of star Jamie Lynn Spears' pregnancy. The week it aired, it was the top-rated show in both the 6–11 and 9–14 age groups, even beating out one of the show's main rivals, Hannah Montana.
Zoey's parents come for an unexpected visit to PCA to tell her and Dustin that they are moving to England because Mr. Brooks's business is starting a new branch in London. When offered to accompany them to London, Dustin quickly declines the offer because he is seeing someone, but Zoey decides to think about it first. Zoey treasures Chase's opinion the most, so she decides to ask him about it first. Unfortunately, Chase overhears rumors that Zoey had already decided to leave PCA forever without asking him first. This leaves Chase feeling hurt and angry so when Zoey comes to talk to him about it, he bitterly convinces her that she should go to London, and she decides to leave PCA. Before she leaves she gives a sad moment saying goodbye to Lola, Quinn, Michael, Logan, Mark, Dustin, and Stacey. Chase, however, doesn't come to say goodbye. After Zoey leaves, Michael confronts Chase and tells him how much Zoey cared for his opinion. Chase then regrets his actions and starts hanging out with a gross girl named Gretchen, because she looks a lot like Zoey. Logan, Michael, Lola, and Quinn all hate her. Michael and Logan have an intervention for him. He later admits that he only did so because he missed Zoey. In a cliffhanger ending, due to a webcam malfunction, Zoey watches Chase confess his love for her when talking to Michael and Logan.
