Agnetha is still
trying to win the boys over to her side, by taking Ty and Axl out to dinner. But when Ty gets ‘detained’ by Eva and
doesn’t show, Axl is left to face the dragon alone – which is a task he manages
relatively successfully, managing to steer Agnetha in the direction of
affirming his decision to work on becoming more of a man. This, Axl has decided, includes knuckling
down and working on his studies.

when Axl decides to reacquaint himself with his building studies, it coincides
with the appearance of Colin in his class, as the most depressing guest
lecturer ever.Axl buttonholes Colin and
gets from him the confirmation that he is on the right path, trying to become a
better God through being a better man – though Colin doesn’t think mucking
round in the building trade is the way to achieve this.But Mike, for his part, thinks the whole “be
a man to become a God” angle is a waste of time, and has no compunction in
telling Axl this.
meanwhile, is becoming increasingly worried about Ty – and the detrimental
effect Eva is having on his health and welfare. With the aid of Anders, she
attempts to steer Ty, her most favoured son, away from his wife, and in the
direction of Dawn – who clearly still loves Ty.This, however, does not work, as Ty has it in his head that he and Dawn
can never be together.
both Mike and Agnetha manage to do is to steer their chosen charges in
completely the wrong direction.Axl
stomps off to meet Colin, who starts him on his manliness lessons by getting
him completely trashed at the bar where they found Kvasir.The next morning Axl wakes up with a
beautiful woman leaving his room and no recollection of events the night
But whatever did
take place that night takes a turn towards the dark side when Colin informs Axl
that the woman, Brianna, a junior lawyer at Colin’s firm, is claiming that some
non-consensual sex took place.Axl
freaks out, but it is Mike and Olaf who take control of the situation, and head
off to meet Colin.
At this meeting
two things happen: Colin admits that the allegations against Axl are bogus –
revenge for Axl laughing at his offer of help; and a way to send the Johnsons a
message to stop pretending to be Gods and to leave God business to those who
actually deserve to be called Gods; and Mike, in a wager over Axl’s massive
bar-tab from the night before, wins the bar, which it transpires Colin
Thus it comes to
pass that Mike finds a place to call his own; Ty is driven deeper into the arms
of Eva (with a branding ceremony to prove it); and Axl is innocent of all
allegations.But as Axl and Zeb
celebrate the clearing of Axl’s good name, they become aware of a new arrival
at the flat – Gaia, looking for somewhere to stay.
