Daniel finds himself back living and working with his best friend Emma - but things have changed while he was away. Emma sold a house, now she's more of a real estate agent than him.

Daniel has to prove that he has what it takes to earn his place in the family business and Emma needs to decide whether small town life, and its dangerously disinhibited locksmith, Damien, are enough for her.

When Barbara passes on the offer of a speech at the local primary school (and tuckshop duty), it falls on a very reluctant Daniel to step in. Buoyed by Emma, Daniel concedes that facing down his classroom fears may actually promote the business.

Daniel's resolve is put to the test when he and Emma are accused of stealing at the local store and duly banned by local student, Tyler.

Whilst on tuck shop duty, Emma and Daniel seize the opportunity to inspire the next generation of Rosehaven in their own very unique way. And, when Daniel sees bullying in the playground, he's compelled to intervene.
