"Meet the Knights" 1 185

Chloe and Owen struggle to find a way of telling Silas he can’t live with them anymore. In the meantime, they are invited to their new neighbours’ housewarming party. Embarrassed about still having her little brother living with her, Chloe pretends he is mentally challenged; an act which Silas unknowingly pulls off rather well. This earns her praise from single father Toby Knight, leaving Owen clueless. Elsewhere, Mark still hasn’t told Rosa how he feels; and Silas gets to know Toby's 24-year old daughter Robin, an angry young woman who never managed to jump the nest. Robin’s lack of diplomacy results in her inadvertently exposing the lie about Silas, forcing Chloe and Owen to admit the truth. When arguments break out in all directions, the Knights begin to have second thoughts about their new home.

  • Robin Knight becomes a main character.

Rosa is shocked to encounter Owen’s daughter, Bethany, teaching a stripping class at the YMCA. Owen marches to the centre and his attempts to physically drag her out result in her injuring an ankle. Facing eviction now that she has no income, Bethany demands that Owen finds her a substitute. Unable to fill the role as he’s a man, Owen turns to Rosa and begs her to take the position, promising she won’t have to take off any of her clothes. Rosa initially finds herself well out of her comfort zone after agreeing to a trial run but later begins to break out of her shell.

Silas starts looking for a place to live and posts advertisements across the park. At the same time, Mark and Rosa show lawyer Morris West around after he sets up an office. He admits to Rosa that he has been disbarred and has taken to offering legal council “as a friend.” Good Samaritan Rosa struggles to sleep at night knowing the indiscretions going on and subsequently keeps Mark awake. Silas learns from them that Morris is also looking for a place to stay and decides to ask him about living together. Before he knows it, he is ushered into a legal consultation, and finds himself coerced into suing Chloe and Owen for evicting him without giving enough notice.

"Tactic Toe" 4 188

Chloe is surprised when new neighbour Robin arrives at the talent agency and asks to sign up as an actress. Chloe is pleased as the agency has been going through a dry run but soon worries that Robin is only doing it to stick it to her controlling father Toby and will ultimately abandon it when she’s had her fun. She asks Owen to make sure Robin’s dreams of becoming an actress are the real deal, but his efforts to learn more about her personal life are greatly misinterpreted; most worryingly of all by Toby. Meanwhile, Silas and benevolent lawyer Morris are adjusting to living together, and everything seems to be going fine until Silas realises Morris has used his lawyer wiles to make him pay 60% of the rent. Mark attempts to help Silas overcome Morris’s cutthroat tactics.

"Sanity Fair" 5 189

Mark becomes jealous of the developing friendship between Rosa and Toby, especially when Owen remarks that they could be soul mates. He becomes determined to prevent anything from happening between them and offends Rosa in the process. Infuriated, she decides to spend the evening at Toby's house; giving him redecoration ideas. However, she soon wishes she had listened to Mark when she realises Toby hasn’t quite gotten over the loss of his wife and is shaping her up as a replacement. Mark and Owen embark on a mission to rescue Rosa when Robin casually mentions that Toby usually lives in a psychiatric hospital and has only been visiting these past few weeks.

"Sink Floyd" 6 190

Floyd is visiting the kids for a weekend, and Owen feels uncomfortable when he notices the spark between him and Chloe still exists. When Mark points out that Floyd is the father of Chloe’s children and there will always be a connection between them, Owen becomes determined to prove he can be a capable step-father and applies for adoption. Chloe loves the idea but has second thoughts when she realises Floyd has recently been dumped by his girlfriend Crystal and being a dad to his kids is the only thing keeping him going. Desperate, Owen turns to self-proclaimed man-eater Robin to boost Floyd’s confidence.

"I Feel Pity" 7 191

Worried that she and Silas have become distant ever since he moved out, Chloe decides to invite him to Thanksgiving dinner but is dismayed to learn the invitation extends to his new roommate Morris. Finding any time to bond with Silas proves to be a particularly difficult feat when it becomes apparent that Morris is involved in a class-action lawsuit against New York City for the vast number of turkeys it wastes every year. Owen, on the other hand, is busy worrying that history is repeating itself when Robin stops by and remarks how “domesticated” he has become as he cooks the dinner. Determined not to end up like he did with his ex-wife, Owen goes on strike, wasting another turkey. Meanwhile, Mark considers inviting Roz to Thanksgiving dinner after hearing about her split from Noel, but Rosa is firmly against the idea.

"Charades" 8 192

Mark and Owen agree to accompany Robin to the psychiatric hospital to visit her dad when she opens up about how difficult it is for her to go alone. However, she is annoyed when they constantly crack jokes about the hospital’s “crazy” residents while making their way to reception, and as a result, she doesn’t correct the staff when they assume she has brought Mark and Owen to be committed. Robin heads home but is quickly consumed by guilt about leaving her potential new friends behind. Getting the words out to Chloe proves difficult, so she resorts to charades. At the hospital, Mark and Owen desperately try to prove their sanity, but hourly sessions with the psychiatrist soon have them questioning their own belief system.

"Horrible Host Stories" 9 193

Christmas arrives, and with it finds several volunteers for hosting the main dinner. While Silas wants to prove he is doing great on his own; Mark hopes to pop the question to Rosa. When it becomes apparent that Silas’s apartment will be full of Morris’s bickering clients and their screaming children, he relents and allows someone else to host. This leaves Mark against Owen, who it later transpires wants to pop the question as well. Multiple rehearsal dinners are held, allowing everyone to make their final choice over which event to attend – but Chloe has caught wind of Owen’s planned proposal and conspires with Mark to make sure the hosting duties don’t fall to him. Meanwhile, Robin spends Christmas with her dad at the psychiatric hospital.

"Failure to Communicate" 10 194

As the New Year approaches, Chloe and Owen’s relationship is on the rocks after Owen’s aborted proposal. Fearing for their future, Owen asks Mark to ask Chloe where their relationship is headed, but she is annoyed that he won’t ask her directly and refuses to answer. Taking some bad advice, Owen starts flirting with other women to make Chloe jealous. Unfortunately, it has the opposite effect when the flirting leads Chloe to believe he has moved on, causing her to ask out the next guy she sees: Nolan Talent’s dorky, acne-ridden courier Michael. As a result, Chloe and Owen become involved in an increasingly escalating one-upmanship contest at Mark and Rosa’s New Year’s Eve party. Meanwhile, Robin organises a bet on who Chloe and Owen will be kissing at midnight.

A hair salon opens in the business park, and everyone takes to getting their hair done on a regular basis when the kind owner, Petunia, offers a 20% discount to anyone on the park. Rosa quickly befriends Petunia and urges her to say something when it becomes apparent that the discount is putting her out of business. Unable to disappoint the new friends she’s made, she decides to start giving them bad hairstyles in an attempt to drive them away. Unfortunately for Mark, he is the first to fall victim to this when he shows up expecting the discount and subsequently has no idea why everybody is laughing at him.

"Law and Disorder" 12 196

Silas is annoyed when Morris fails to consult him before throwing a party to celebrate getting his law degree back, especially once he realises Morris hopes to gain several lawsuits from the party, as it’s a breeding ground for bad behaviour. Determined to teach Morris a lesson, Silas enlists the help of Mark and Owen to keep the party polite and calm. Robin is annoyed when this necessitates the banning of alcohol, and spends the night trying to find an emergency supply. Meanwhile, after Morris proudly places his law degree in a picture frame, keen-eye Rosa becomes convinced that it is a fake and her resulting meddling could land everyone at the party in trouble. Morris eventually admits the truth and decides to quit practising law for good, leaving a guilty Rosa to help him find a new vocation.

Robin is highly confused when she walks in on everyone singing Christmas carols.

Culinary expert Owen is convinced that their palettes simply aren’t developed enough to enjoy certain foods and encourages them to join him at the 45th Annual Cheesefest in Manhattan.

In the meantime, Silas gets involved in a fierce cheese-rolling competition.

Worried about the costs incurred by a bachelor party, Silas is determined to do the whole thing on the cheap. As a result, Mark’s last night as a free man isn’t as exciting as he anticipated when he, Silas and Owen wind up at an OAP casino, where Silas has one last shot at solving his debt when he is informed of a defect in one of the slot machines. Back on Adelaide Park, Chloe and Rosa are uncomfortable when Robin takes it upon herself to hire a male stripper.
