The Trap is Sprung

Episode 1
Australia: Monday, June 15, 2015 (7TWO)

A year has gone by since we last saw our heroes and life has turned out well for all of them. In fact things couldn't be more perfect. Sam, Jack and Lucy are about to perform their first big concert, Ben and Sophie have found the ideal holiday job at a sports camp and — thanks to Marcus — the castle back in Germany is finally generating the revenue needed to maintain it. But things quickly start to unravel with the surprise arrival in Australia of Lili and the Baron. First Ben gets caught up in a case of mistaken identity and then the Baron is arrested by the Australian police! Lili quickly suspects a set up. But who could be behind these actions? And what can they do about it?

Lili's Grand Plan

Episode 2

With Philipp awaiting trial and unable to leave Australia, Ben is faced with having to return to Germany to become Baron again — a prospect he's definitely not happy about. He doesn't want to leave Sophie and he's really enjoying his job at the bush camp. But Lili is adamant — there's no other way to save the castle — they must go immediately. Sam isn't happy either. Just when the band's future is looking good, her mother insists that she also go to Germany to help keep Ben out of trouble. Lili's grand plan however looks doomed before it can even start. A bizarre complication arises which throws everything into disarray.

Ben Takes Command

Episode 3

A triumphant Lili arrives back in Germany with Sam and Ben in tow only to find they've been locked out of the castle by Hermann. A family meeting is called at which Ben has to persuade everyone that he's the right person to run the castle — a task that seems impossible. Back in Australia, Philipp is having great difficulty adjusting to his new life at the camp. Even with Sophie's help he manages to fail every task he's given and it looks like the camp supervisor will have no choice but to dismiss him. That's bad enough in itself. Worse though is that he'll then have to spend the next 3 months in a police cell while awaiting trial for a crime he knew nothing about.

It's a Dog's Life

Episode 4

Ben begins his baronial duties, the first of which involves judging the local dog show. It should be a simple enough task but Ben soon finds himself completely confused about which dog should get which award. Lili is dismayed. Not only will this cause uproar among the villagers but Hermann will use the failure as proof of Ben's inability to be a good Baron. He'll then have the excuse he needs to get them booted out of the castle. Sam, Jack and Lucy meanwhile are shocked to hear their music being played in television commercials. They're even more appalled to discover they have unwittingly signed away all the rights to their music. Philly B now controls everything they've done!

Bad Music is Good Music

Episode 5

Sam, Jack and Lucy need to get out of their music contracts with Philly B. but don't know how. Sam enlists the help of Marcus who devises a plan — but it comes with a catch. They'll have to start out all over again and build new musical careers from scratch. And they'll have to say 'goodbye' to all the songs they've created so far. As they weigh this up, a different sort of chaos is unfolding at the camp. Philipp has taken a group of teenagers on a trek through the bush — and now they are all completely lost! That's bad — but even worse is the fact that Philipp is due to check in with the police today and if he fails to arrive, the police will have no choice but to put him back in gaol. An anxious Lili calls Sophie who immediately sets out on horseback to find him. But when Philipp gets lost, he really gets lost and even Sophie's best efforts are unlikely to be enough to save the day.

Lili Cooks up a Storm

Episode 6

Lili hires a very fashionable, young, celebrity chef to revamp the castle café. But when Vincent arrives it quickly becomes apparent that he is going to make all their lives a nightmare. He soon has Ben traipsing through the forest spending hours foraging for 'natural forest produce' and Sam and Marcus running all over town looking for obscure, organic foods. When all the kitchen staff leave because they refuse to work with Vincent it's obvious to everyone that Lili's plan is a disaster and the new chef must go. Marcus decides to do some background checking and discovers some surprising facts about Vincent. It looks like they have the ammunition to get rid of him — but will they be able to get Lili to change her mind and agree?

To Catch a Thief

Episode 7

Lili tells Ben that he is to be formally introduced to the town dignitaries at a reception to be held in the gardens of the castle. It's the annual "Family Crest Presentation" and it's important that Ben makes a good impression on the locals, especially as cousin Hermann will be there, watching for any opportunity to discredit him. Ben manages to make his usual quota of mistakes but ultimately is able to charm most of the guests. Until, that is, people suddenly discover that their valuables have disappeared. This can mean only one thing — there's a thief in their midst! What's more, the evidence points to it being none other than Ben himself! How can this be? And what can Marcus, Sam and Lili do to find the valuables and save all their reputations?

Even though they are half a world away, Jack and Lucy inevitably find out and feel Sam has betrayed them. Naturally Sam doesn't see it like that at all. The tension escalates and it looks like the band has no other choice but to break up.

Who will win the battle of the wits? And what effect will the final show have on the family when they see it on TV?

Old Love, New Love

In Australia, Philipp is promoted to camp Entertainment Director and asks Sophie to play guitar for him for a campfire sing-a-long. Sophie is a bit rusty and asks Jack to help with her guitar playing. It soon becomes clear that Jack is smitten by Sophie and it isn't long before Sophie starts to enjoy his company too.

As Ralf's is the only café in town that supports musicians, Sam asks Ben for a favour. The feuding owners will put their cases to the local council at a meeting tomorrow and ask the council to decide which one is in the right. Sam asks Ben to use his influence as the Baron and speak at the meeting on behalf of Ralf. Ben agrees but soon discovers that the rival café owner is Mia's uncle. He doesn't want to upset Mia but at the same time he doesn't want to go back on his word to Sam. As a result he tries to steer a middle course and so upsets both of them.

Jack agrees — but quickly gets cold feet, terrified that Ben will be upset. Unknown to Jack though, Ben has been increasingly attracted towards local girl, Mia. But Ben becomes so nervous every time he talks to her that he fails miserably to impress her in the way he'd like. Will Jack pluck up the courage to admit to Ben about his feelings for Sophie and can Ben pluck up the courage to tell Mia how he feels about her?

Jack and Lucy to the Rescue

Episode 13

Philipp is thrilled to hear that his trial has been brought forward and — because he's obviously innocent — he's sure he'll therefore be going home very soon.

Lili is delighted but Marcus is suspicious and decides to investigate. A background check soon reveals exactly who Martin Frank is and more importantly, that he's an old business associate of cousin Hermann. Could this 'German /Australian function' be a setup designed to trap Philipp and delay his homecoming? Suspecting the worst, Sam gets Jack and Lucy to pose as hired musicians and attend the function. At the same time, Lili and Marcus instruct Sophie to watch Philipp's every move. But are the teenagers' imaginations running out of control? And even if it is a setup, will the efforts of a few teenagers be enough to foil such a sophisticated plan?

Mia Kicks a Goal

Episode 14

It's the annual soccer match between Hasendorf and the neighbouring town of Falkenburg. As the Baron, Ben is expected to be the referee and he finds himself under pressure from both sides before the game even begins. Hasendorf hasn't won in decades and all the locals are keen to see Ben favour their side. As well, Mia is playing and Ben doesn't want to do anything that will upset his friendship with her. To complicate matters, Lili reveals that the coach of Falkenburg is the newly appointed Head of the Tourist Authority and they need him to give their castle favourable publicity on their website. She suggests that it would be very helpful if Ben could therefore be 'sympathetic' to his team. Suddenly, Ben realizes that a small town 'friendly' game has become a battleground for high stakes — and he's in the middle of it. During the game, Ben tries to be even handed and make decisions that alternatively favour one side, then the other. But all that does is antagonize supporters of both sides. Seeing his dilemma, Sam talks to Ben at half time and suggests he try a radically different approach. But will it work?

But Lili doesn't know many young aristocrats who would be both suitable and available. Marcus and Sam find a website exclusively devoted to young members of the nobility. They soon discover some potential escorts for Lili and ask them to attend the castle to be interviewed. The initial results are very discouraging but to everyone's surprise, the final interview sees a very charming and intelligent boy — Max — present himself.

It will require all his strength and even more of Sophie's to get him through. Meanwhile at the castle, it's the annual Medieval Fair and Ben, Sam, Marcus and Mia all find themselves roped in by Lili to play various roles on the day. And just as Philipp is struggling in Australia, Lili also struggles to charm an American travel blogger who can potentially give the castle some invaluable publicity if she writes a good review of the day's proceedings.

But once at the park, it soon becomes clear that Jules and Emma share a real passion for the park's rides while Sam and Marcus aren't nearly as enthused about them.

Ben isn't sure he can pull this off but Lili tells him not to worry. She'll accompany Ben to the meeting. He just has to leave her to do the talking. But during the meeting, Lili finds herself caught up in an emergency and has to leave Ben to manage on his own. To everyone's surprise, Ben pulls it off and wins their castle prime position on the route. But then they discover that he's really been outfoxed by all the other Barons and now they are lumbered with a responsibility they definitely don't want.

Horses for Courses

Episode 19

Sam, Jack and Lucy are excited to be asked to audition for one of Germany's biggest music promoters and band managers. The plan is for Sam to be in a studio in Germany which will be linked via satellite to a studio in Australia where Jack and Lucy will play. It's an expensive exercise and they'll only have a fifteen minute window of opportunity so they'll have to be well prepared and ready to go. At the same time, Sophie is asked to ride in a horse orienteering event on behalf of the camp. The two events are scheduled for the same day and Jack finds himself committed to both events. However, as there's a gap of several hours between the two events, Jack is confident there won't be a problem. But Jack has an uncanny ability to encounter problems which no one else would ever be likely to meet. Suddenly the audition is in jeopardy.

Great Work!...We Think

Episode 20

Hermann arrives unexpectedly to inform Lili that the castle's possessions will be audited — tomorrow! If anything important is found to be missing or broken then the family will have grounds to throw Ben [and Lili and Philipp] out of the castle and therefore Herman can take over. Lili immediately enlists the help of Marcus, Sam and Ben to ensure everything is in order. Fortunately, all is well and the family's heirlooms are all present and intact. But Hermann can always be guaranteed to have a surprise up his sleeve and on the day of the audit, he reveals one. Suddenly, he is in position to take control of everything. Meanwhile Sam's band has impressed the German music producer who now wants to see them all in Germany. This means Jack and Lucy need to quickly raise some money to help pay for their airfares. The only jobs they can find are in a call centre where they have to sell products over the phone. Lucy rises to the occasion with gusto but Jack is far from being a natural salesman. With their departure date looming, it looks like there's no way that he'll be on that plane to Germany.

Sam and Ben Bomb Out

Episode 21

Sam's thrilled to see her best friends make it to Germany but there's little time for celebration. They have just 3 days to rehearse before their audition for Albert Scheren, the renowned German music producer. But finding a place they can rehearse is harder than finding a needle in a haystack! Even worse, the venue Sam had hoped to use for their actual audition is now unavailable. It looks like the usually reliable Sam has made an absolute mess of things by not properly preparing. At the same time, Ben accompanies Mia on a charity bike ride. But in doing so, he manages in spectacular fashion to disrupt Mia's chances of completing the ride. All her hard work will have been for nothing. Now both twins have caused major problems for themselves and their closest friends. It will take some seriously ingenious problem solving — and luck!- to get them out of the holes they've dug themselves into.

A Band or a Brand?

Episode 22

Now that Jack and Lucy have joined Sam in Germany, local music entrepreneur, Albert Scheren is going to put them through their paces to see if he will sign them. The three teenagers look forward to the challenge — until they experience what Scheren has in store for them. It seems that the band he wants them to be is not exactly the band that they want to be. The teenagers decide to confront Scheren with their views and are relieved to see that he agrees. Happily, they assemble the next day, determined to give the performance of their lives. But nothing is straightforward in the commercial music industry and further surprises are in store. Becoming successful musicians is clearly going to be a lot harder than they ever imagined.

Big Brother is Watching

Episode 23

When Ben accidently breaks a small castle ornament he sets in motion a train of events that makes him wish he'd just confessed to his mistake at the outset. First, Philipp hears of the accident and is immediately alarmed about the castle's security. So Marcus suggests they should rig up surveillance cameras in all the main rooms. Then Philipp gets an even better idea. Using the internet, he can watch the vision from the cameras in Australia each night after he finishes his work at the Bush Camp. Not only will that provide great security, it will also make him feel more at home because he'll be in touch with the castle 24/7. It sounds a great plan but the teenagers soon realize that Philipp can now see their every move. It's like being constantly spied on and they have hardly any privacy left at all. Somehow, they have to bring this situation to an end — and fast!

Desperate and Dateless

Episode 24

Sam is feeling a bit desperate and dateless. What with Lili going out with Max and Ben with Mia, everyone seems to have someone to do things with except her. And to make matters worse, everyone is obviously feeling sorry for her and she's in serious danger of being killed with kindness! When Ben and Mia suggest she partner with Marcus for the annual Fire Brigade Dance Competition, Sam initially refuses. She'd find it way too embarrassing to be partners with an old boyfriend. But the others need a third couple for their team and under pressure, Sam eventually agrees to it. She and Marcus start rehearsing together and it soon becomes obvious that maybe they both still have feelings for each other. But do either of them really want this sort of complication in their lives?

Money, Mayhem and Mystery

Episode 25

Philipp's trial finally arrives and to everyone's relief, all charges against him are dropped. He is free to go home! But as he leaves the court escorted by the equally jubilant Sophie, Jack and Lucy, a courier presents him with a package — full of foreign money! As if from nowhere, the police suddenly arrive and he quickly finds himself back under arrest again. This nightmare just won't go away. Somehow, Hermann hears of Philipp's new dilemma and offers him a way out. Naturally, it will mean transferring ownership of the castle to him. Philipp is given 24 hours to make his decision. Suspecting foul play, Sam, Ben, Lili and Marcus get on the case and try to find a way to free the Baron. But Hermann is expert at covering his tracks so proving he's behind everything will be far from easy.

Winners Are Grinners

Episode 26

With Philipp due back in Germany in 3 days, excited preparations are underway at the castle to welcome him home. Then Hermann announces to Lili that ancient law requires the family to vote on Ben's performance as Baron. And this must occur in 2 days. If Philipp isn't back by then, and the family votes against Ben, Hermann will take ownership of the castle. As Philipp boards his flight from Australia, the teenagers make plans to ensure that everything possible is done to ensure the family are impressed by Ben's smooth running of the castle. They organise an extravagant garden party and invite the Mayor and other local dignitaries — all of whom they know will speak highly of Ben to the family. This will be followed by a magnificent lunch — prepared by one of the best chefs in Lower Saxony. Lili leaves no stone unturned in order to win the family to their cause. But Hermann is equally determined and it's not long before things spiral downwards as he sabotages all the teenagers' good work. This time, it looks like he might win the day after all.
