Season 3

In "White Hare", Lincoln wanted to make a good impression because of her arrival to town. However, the sisters encouraged him to be himself, since him being himself is enough to make a good impression.

Later when Lincoln said he thinks he's boring because of his routines, Stella assured him that everyone has own routines and it doesn't make him boring.

In "Antiqued Off", Lincoln called Stella to invite her to stage magic show, but she excused herself that she has to help her grandmother. Later Lincoln met Stella and demanded explanation, why she lied to him. She admitted she lied to him, because she thinks stage magic is boring and didn't want to hurt his feelings.

Stella got a central role in "Tails of Woe". In it, she brings an antique music box to school for show-and-tell, but it goes missing.

In "Tough Cookies", she helps her friends bake cookies to sell and makes a conveyor belt. However, this ends up backfiring when Liam's cow kicks the conveyor belt, making a mess.

In "Friends in Dry Places", Stella goes to camp with her classmates.

In "Saved by the Spell", Stella and her friends tried to take part in Middle School Talent Show by dancing together. They wanted Lincoln to join them, but he preferred to work alone in his stage magic. Stella and the other friends were afraid of Lincoln humiliating himself during his performance, so they tried to discourage him. Stella disguised herself as a failed yodeling performer and successfully discouraged Lincoln by telling him a fabricated sad story. Lincoln finally agreed to join his friends until he found Stella's costume in her locker, so he was upset and left his friends. To apologize, Stella agreed to volunteer in Lincoln's stage magic performance.

In "No Bus No Fuss", during the school bus ride, Stella and her friends were violently bullied by three eighth graders. They all tried to find safer way to school. In the first week, they asked their parents (sans Stella's) to drive them school, but they were too much distracted to drive them to school on time. In the next week, they took city buses to go to school, but the plan was too much convoluted to work. By the seventh day, they used Flip's offer to get to school by plane, but this was too dangerous as Flip's plane and parachutes were junk.

In the end, Stella and her friends decided to suffer the bullies instead of taking another idea for alternative. It's revealed that after Stella and her friends stopped using the school bus, the 8th graders bullies started bullying other kids. Unable to see the other students suffer, Lincoln came with the idea to gang up against the bullies. When Lincoln told the bullies to stop bullying them, Stella and the rest of their friends showed themselves up, later the other kids. The bullies realized they are outnumbered, so they stopped bullying.

In "Zach Attack", Stella agreed to help Zach keep the charade of aliens visiting Royal Woods. She disguised herself as an alien and spoke alien language as Zach instructed her. However, Zach's lie got revealed in the end.

In "Flying Solo", Stella, along with Rusty and Zach joined school home-ec club lead by Mr. Bolhofner. First they cooked food from bugs, later they made costumes for Lincoln and Clyde.

In "Rumor Has It", Stella and her friends were going on a school field trip, but were forced to ride with Mr. Bolhofner when it was revealed the school bus is full. However, the trip as a whole was cancelled when the bus got stuck in a Flippee spill. Mr. Bolhofner was going to take them back to school, though his car broke down, forcing him to take them into his cabin in the woods. Driven by false rumors about Mr. Bolhofner's allegedly checkered past, Stella and her friends tried to escape from the cabin while leaving him behind.

The kids were eventually able to escape the "wrath of 'Skullhofner'", though their path was blocked by both a fallen tree and a particularly vicious bear, which Mr. Bolhofner quickly subdues, making it run away rather cowardly into the forest. Seeing that Mr. Bolhofner just protected them from certain death, Stella and her friends told him about their feelings, which were fueled by the false rumors. He realized the misconceptions fueled by the false rumors, offering to stay outside so the kids don't have to worry about "Skullhofner". Feeling bad, Stella and her friends decided to show everyone at school the video of Mr. Bolhofner wrestling the bear. Mr. Bolhofner was touched by the kids showing everyone that he isn't what everyone thinks he is.

In "Training Day", Stella asks Lana to look after her particularly destructive pet rabbit, Jazzy. Lana initially has an issue controlling Jazzy, which she is able to resolve when she reunites him with his twin Snazzy, indirectly giving Stella another pet rabbit as a result.

They are forced to fix the entire restaurant, and both groups are able to get their share of Gus' when it is revealed the booth they like can be expanded to accommodate both groups.

In "Broadcast Blues", she allows Chandler to join the Action News Team so that they can earn new technology, only for everyone to regret doing this when he begins to bully other students on camera.

In "How the Best Was Won", she and Liam witness Clincoln McCloud and "Zusty Spurdles" (Zach and Rusty's best friendship name) duke it out for the title of "Best Best Friend". She hosts a competition that involves the two doing challenges, and while Clincoln and Zusty didn't win "Best Friend", Stella and her friends win "Best Friend Group".
