In By the Book, Tracy is told to enforce the cleaning rotas and believing it will help get him and Tee fostered, Johnny starts volunteering himself and Tee for everyone's chores in return for gold stars in his file. Tracy feels Johnny is bullying Tee into doing all the house work. So she promises them gold stars no matter what they do. Tee forgets about Johnny and his chores and climbs the biggest tree in the garden and gets stuck when Tracy tells her to come down. Johnny climbs up to help her but Tee falls, although narrowly escapes serious injury thanks to an intervention by Toby. Tracy believes she'll get sacked but none of the kids have told Mike or Gina about the accident. In Drained, Johnny is visibly angry when Lily tells Carmen and Sapphire (who now hates her for supposedly causing them to move to Burneywood) about Lily being fostered and Johnny accidentally overhears this and becomes upset, believing that Lily has stolen his and Tee's foster placement.
In What You Don't Know, The Dumping Ground residents are waiting for the return of Johnny and Tee after being fostered. The foster parents loved Tee but thought Johnny was very controlling and could be very moody. They only want to foster Tee but the Dumping Ground has a strict policy about not splitting up siblings. Elektra overhears Tracy telling about Johnny and Tee, and gives Johnny a hint about why they were sent back and this makes him very curious. It turns out that Tee borrowed a precious bracelet from her possible foster sister Hannah then forgot to give it back. This makes Johnny extremely angry with Tee as he is convinced that this is why they were sent back.

Tracy is in charge of choosing which residents win each award. she soon learns that this will not be a simple task. The idea of the awards causes tension in the household.

Elektra tries to placate Johnny and states that the awards do not mean anything. She then sneaks into the office with Johnny where they read confidential files and Johnny changes the award titles. Johnny and Elektra read out the fake awards to the other residents. They say that these awards are the real ones which express how the carers really feel about them. Tyler is particularly hurt because Johnny and Elektra reveal his bedwetting secret. Later on in the episode, Frank states that everyone has wet the bed at some point. Sapphire invites Johnny and Elektra to her flat where she reveals that living on one's own brings problems such as the facts that there is no one to tell you to go to college or to provide any support. Sapphire's statement shocks Johnny and he is afraid of being a 'nobody.' He enters a flat because he is lured by the high level of technology inside of it. Two men return to the flat and reach the conclusion that Johnny was attempting to rob them. They bring Johnny back to Sapphire's flat where they wreck one of her paintings and take mobile phones. They inform Sapphire, Elektra and Johnny that they can get their phones back once Johnny has completed a task. The pair forces Johnny to break into a nearby residence where he he encounters a fierce-looking man and his pets. Johnny decides to ring Tracy, who explains matters to the man who then protects the children when he confronts the two men who forced to break into his residence. He tells them to stay away from Sapphire and her friends. At the awards ceremony, Johnny apologises to Tyler. Johnny as a result wins an award for being a brave and loyal friend.
