As Matthew spies on his sister in the name of 'good brother' research, Ben has his own observational study to conduct, having been enrolled on a home education insectology course.

Ben bonds with his new stick insect friends who appear to be evolving in front of his very eyes. Tom's birthday party food has proved such a hit he launches his own pop up restaurant in the living room.
