In November, he went to see April at Coal Hill Academy, and found her in a car outside with Ram Singh. She was angry with him, and, as a result of sharing her heart with Corakinus, produced Shadow Kin scimitars and attacked him, then suggested he run away. April later told Ram that, due to Corakinus' influence, she wanted to kill him.
That same day, he visited Jackie's house to tell her about April. With her new powers, April nearly killed him. (TV: Co-Owner of a Lonely Heart) He initially didn't know what to do after April travelled to the Underneath but when she opened a tear back to Earth he travelled through to get her back.

When they returned home she told him to go away and only come back when they asked him to. (TV: Brave-ish Heart)
