The housemates of Cacti Casa think they’ve found the perfect candidate to move into Mitchell’s old room. Jack Carson is an active guy, is really passionate about fishing, and both J and Gavin can tell he’s also a bro too.
The housemates of Cacti Casa bid farewell to their roomie, Mitchell Kalani. He’s moving out to live with his new wife in Willow Creek. Zoe gives Mitchell a big hug and makes him promise to visit often, while J and Gavin cheer for their bro Mitchell taking the next step in his life.
Zoe Patel reckons that making connections with colleagues will help her in the future, so she reaches out and invites Devya Chatterjee and Jade Rosa to Hare and Hedgehog in Windenburg. Zoe gets to know her work friends better over some coffees.
While exploring the woods, Zoe stumbles upon a hidden path that leads to a remote area. Zoe meets Diana Wallis, a woman who lives a hermit lifestyle and is a master herbalist. Diana doesn’t get visitors often, but seems friendly and offers Zoe some herbalism tips.
Zoe has become a pretty good gardener, but there are many new plants she can’t identify growing around the woods. She comes across a plant that she believes may be fireleaf, and upon touching it she does get an unpleasant itchy burning sensation. Ouch.
The Roomies start their group vacation in Granite Falls with a game of tossing horseshoes. J Huntington III opts to take his girlfriend Brynlee Woodward along, while Zoe Patel invites her love interest Uriah Keating, and Mitchell Kalani brings his new fiancée Amie Irvin. Gavin Richards decides to fly solo.
Still feeling embarrassed about being caught cheating, J asks housemate Zoe for advice. He really likes Brynlee, but wonders if he’s messed things up with her now? Zoe suggests that perhaps J is ready for a more committed relationship?
