Episode 5

Written by Kirsten Fisher
Directed by John Hartley

When Alex and his sister, Sam, are left home alone for the night, there's clearly only one thing to do — have a house party! But if Alex thought he was going to have fun, he thought wrong. Sam blackmails him into clean-up duty with the threat of showing an embarrassing video of him if he doesn't do as she says.

Simon instantly causes problems when he spills some juice on the rug and then Alex accidentally drinks ginger beer — which always makes him throw up! When Alex gets stuck inside the pantry, it seems the calamities will never end and then a cheese toastie catches fire, the power short-circuits, and Alex's hopes of surviving the party without unleashing his sister's wrath, are dashed. Sam is livid with Alex, despite the fact that she managed to snog her hot new crush, Justin, at the end of the party.

The next time around, Alex is desperate to avoid disaster and suggests to Sam that she holds the house party outside. Alex tells Maddy the plan for the night is to keep Sam and Justin apart. After the party last time, Justin ended up dumping Sam, leaving her heartbroken and Alex holding the tissues!

But moving outside does nothing to stop the flood of failures and Alex once again finds himself on the point of being humiliated by his sister's embarrassing video. Will she send it for everyone to snigger at? Or will an unexpected arrival save Alex's day?
