To compensate for a usually slack weekend Juliet has let the hotel to a fan convention for the cult 1970s fantasy hero Captain Stranger and she is annoyed that Sam has gone behind her back by recruiting Meredith, a slick motivational expert, to run a team building exercise at the same time. Gino gets a hot date with Mary, one of the conventioners, but her obsession with the show spoils any future they might have. Juliet and Ben help out washed-up television presenter Martin Armstrong, who has been stowing away in the hotel, pinching food and showers. They get him an audition for a new show, which he passes, but he appears to have stolen a pen from another guest and Juliet resigns. However he has only borrowed it and is quick to return it. Sam discovers that Meredith has deliberately rigged her tests at Juliet's expense because she is after both him and the hotel manager's job. He tells Meredith that her services are no longer required and happily re-instates his ex-wife.
