Summary Edit

Heather unexpectedly signs Kingsley up for an open mic event at the Student Union, but after his performance does not go well he recruits Oregon as a bandmate. Sabine has become fed up with the housemates and returns to Rotterdam, leaving a heartbroken Howard taking his frustration out on the housemates by cutting off their electricity, so Kingsley can't have band practices in the house.

JP, following one dig too many at his privileged background, accepts Ralph's offer to join "The Stoweaways" - a dining club of Old Stoics at the University. JP becomes infatuated with Celeste (Clare Fettarappa), the French cousin of one of the Stoweaways, but Ralph 'claims' her by calling shotgun and asks JP to keep an eye on her for him while is away. JP tries to resist but eventually kisses her. Ralph finds out and kicks him out of the group, and Celeste angrily accuses JP of treating her like a piece of meat.

Vod and Kingsley spot Josie wandering around the city when she should be in lectures, and Heather eventually reveals that Josie was kicked off her course. Vod bonds with legendary American poet John Frobisher after she gatecrashes the drinks reception of his lecture, but is horrified when he dies the next day because of the amount he drank with her. She is shocked when Tony Shales hints that he contributed to Frobisher's death just so he could raise his own profile by writing the poet's obituary. Oregon has not yet told Dylan about her relationship with his father, and Tony Shales unsuccessfully continues to try and win her back. Kingsley is annoyed to find that Oregon is a better musician than him and so he quits his own band at their gig. Outside he finds Josie, who has been refused entry as she is no longer a student. He comforts her after she confesses she is scared about her future, and the pair almost kiss, but do not do so.
