Biography

Having unloving parents that abandoned him, he left home and was forced to live on the streets at just seventeen years old.

New Arrivals

After the birth of their child, Jericho, Sean is concerned that Dorothy is rushing to return to work as a reporter at 8 News. Sean and his brother-in-law Julian are on good terms with each other, both enjoying fine wines. As Sean works from his home, he sometimes employs Tobe as his commis chef. He pays cash for the day's work.

While he agreed to hire a live-in nanny, Leanne, he is not enthusiastic about the prospect of having her in their home. He is further horrified to see that the Reborn Doll that Dorothy was caring for had now become a real baby after Leanne had been at the house.

Sean becomes very suspicious about this, including where the baby came from and what it has to do with Leanne. He enlists Julian to help him solve this.

Growing Suspicions

Sean grows more suspicious of Leanne as time goes on, and his work with Julian continues. Julian hires a private detective called Roscoe to investigate Leanne and her past. When Sean was looking for Leanne's application she provided when she applied for the job. Later when he could not find them. Instead, he stuck into Leanne's room and took a photo of her while she was sleeping and gave the photo to Roscoe and Julian to help with their investigations.

His suspicions of Leanne gain traction when Julian and Roscoe discover that Leanne's house burned down and they discover her gravestone. This leads them to believe she was living under a false identity.

When Sean and Dorothy leave the house one evening, he pays Tobe to stay and watch the house as he did not trust Leanne. On other occasions, Julian would also enter the house when Leanne was left there alone in order to keep a watchful eye. Sean does not know what Leanne is up to.

When Dorothy wants to take Jericho to work with her, Sean convinces her this is not the right thing to do as she doesn't like her colleagues showing off their newborn babies. He therefore tells Leanne the plan is off and she will not be attending work with Dorothy and Jericho. Despite him telling her this, when watching Dorothy's news report, he sees Leanne in the background and wonders why this is. He tells Dorothy of this when she returns, and Leanne explains that she took Jericho out for a walk but did not want to tell Dorothy where she was so not to disturb her. Sean is dubious of this reasoning.

Protecting his family

While out of town cooking for the Florida Eagles, Sean learns from Dorothy via video call that Leanne's uncle George has visited and is an uncomfortable presence. Sean urges her to escort George out of the building, but she does not. To be safe, Sean contacts Julian and asked him to join Dorothy, George, and Leanne for dinner to keep them safe.

Sean also wants to protect Dorothy from the truth about Jericho after liking seeing her so happy. When Natalie finds out about the 'real' baby Jericho, she wants to tell Dorothy the truth which Sean urges her not to do. With the help of Julian, at dinner with Natalie, Dorothy, and Leanne, they sield off questions from Natalie about Jericho.

After Leanne found out about the truth behind what happened to Jericho and Dorothy, Shaun tries to convince her that it was an accident and it happens to a lot of people. He reiterates this point when asked by Leanne why he stayed with Dorothy despite what she did.

At Jericho's baptism after event, Sean is confronted by George in the basement. George explains to Sean how the fire was a setup so Leanne could start a new life, allowing others to assume she was dead. George says Sean should pray to God and ask for what he needs, and Sean prays for his son to come back.

A lack of feeling

Not long after Leanne starts working for the Turners, Sean complains about a lack of taste and a lack of feeling.

This starts when Sean confronts Leanne about where the real baby came from when the new baby appears. Sean also destroys the woven cross above Jericho's bed. Later that evening, Sean and Dorothy inspect his buttock to find two splinters in there. Over dinner that evening, Sean also complains of the food being tasteless and begins coughing, and in the kitchen he finds there is a splinter in his throat.

This lack of taste continues on the summertime, with Sean having to use Tobe and Leanne to taste his food for him. A lack of feeling also develops at Jericho's baptism where he squeezed a champagne cork with glass still attached and noticed his hand was bleeding, yet he could not feel this. He tests this out again by placing his hand over a burning gas hob and the lack of feeling continued.

Finding his son

After Sean finishes testing his feeling, Dorothy enters and asks him if he knows where Jericho or Leanne are as they have vanished. After finding out Dorothy has phoned the police, Sean quickly removes all evidence of the baptism such as balloons and gifts in order to stop growing suspicion for them when the police arrived.

Sean is in Jericho's room and a police officer enters who Sean recognizes from the day Jericho is discovered dead. He tells her the baby in the crib is not real and is Dorothy's. Later, when Julian and Natalie arrive, Sean discusses with Julian the plan and is shocked to see that Julian wants to not search for the baby and indeed wants to brush the police off. After the police leave, Sean watches footage which confirms May Markham attended the baptism and he wants to understand why and where they are. Julian aand Natalie say this is a bad idea but Sean wants to pursue this.

However, while he wants to pursue this, he doesn't want the rest of the community to know. So when Dorothy tasks him with delivering flyers searching for May Markham, Sean instead throws these in the trash. Upon returning, he and Dorothy watch a news report showing a The Church of the Lesser Saints follower claiming someone from the group revived someone. Dorothy does not believe this, but Sean begins to.

He enters Leanne's room later to see if he can find any clues and/or indications as to where she and Jericho might be. He finds a Bible and is shocked to see that his name is written on one of the pages, titled "The Test of Leprosy". He later questions Julian on The Church of the Lesser Saints and reveals he is keen to find out about them and find Jericho, before Dorothy let's the community know what has happened.

Sean later has an argument with Dorothy about his ability to be a father, and an embrace with Dorothy is interrupted by a letter containing a baby shoe and note saying "Tell no one, baby lives." Time passes and Sean takes the trash out. He notices the Reborn Doll in the trash and is later seen bathing the doll in the bath, as if the baby was real.

Making contact

In the kitchen, Sean cooks breakfast for Dorothy and discusses with Julian about Jericho. He dismisses Julian's notion about setting up a ransom to keep Dorothy occupied, and he says Julian should spend this time finding the baby.

While cooking another meal later, Roscoe knocks at the door asking to his car keys. Sean is perplexed as to where Roscoe has been having not been able to find him since the baptism. With this, Roscoe says he had been waiting in the car for just one night, after the baptism. Sean is confused by this. With Roscoe in the basement, Sean is happy to allow Dorothy to leave for work, much to the dismay of Julian, in order to show his brother-in-law what has happened to Roscoe.

Sean sees that Julian is confused and holds him back when he gets frustrated with Roscoe. He decides to call Natalie, which Julian disagrees with. Natalie arrives to hypnotize Roscoe and while she does this, Sean gets very agitated, asking for information very quickly. He ignores Natalie's calls for him to slow down and carries on. He is shocked to see that Roscoe indicates that the cult followers harm baby Jericho. Sean and Julian argue over this as Julian does not believe that claim, but he and Natalie do.

Having seen how much Roscoe went through, Sean sees him to the door, thanking him very much for doing what he did. After doing so, he walks into the living room to see Dorothy on television at the newsdesk making a plea for help in finding Leanne and reaching out for Leanne herself. Sean smiles at this and after helping Dorothy clean the dishes when she got back, he cooks while she showers. While cooking, Sean hears his iPad ringing and its Leanne asking why Dorothy is looking for her and why he has not told her what she did to Jericho. Sean walks into the kitchen doorway, looking forwards.

Having a plan

After helping Dorothy track down the various sightings of Leanne in their area, a house Julian is at sparks interest in Sean and Dorothy. A big house that is heavily secured and has deliveries of takeaway foods and groceries makes Sean and Dorothy very curious. Dorothy wants to go over to the house immediately, but Sean is able to convince her that the plan is needed first.

In order to get into the house, Sean works with Dorothy and Julian to devise a takeaway brand they can set up so the house places an order for them to give them access inside. After deciding on Julian's name of "Cheesus Crust", Sean and Tobe prepare the pizzas for when Tobe delivers them. Sean watches with Dorothy and Julian on the television as Tobe makes the delivery. After Tobe discovers Leanne there, Dorothy again wants to rush over there but Sean is able to convince her that the plan is needed - Leanne needs to bring the baby to them.

After finding out a new order has been placed, indicating Leanne wants to see Tobe again, Sean allows Dorothy to prepare the pizza as he knows she wants to get involved. As he watches the delivery of it on the TV, he wants to turn off the TV to cut-off Leanne, stopping Dorothy hearing the insults. After helping Dorothy prepare a pizza, they both re-enter the living room with the Leanne still talking to Tobe. Sean is mortified to see Leanne fall to the floor, having been drugged by Dorothy using the pizza.

Making it stop

Sean isn’t happy with how Dorothy is treating Leanne who is being held in an upstairs attic room. He repeatedly questions Dorothy about whether they are crossing any lines, and Dorothy responds that he should let her handle it. She also forbids Sean from going up to see Leanne as she claims he can be easily manipulated.

Disagreeing with this, Sean hunts for the keys around the house until he eventually finds them. On his first visit to Leanne, he speaks notes that she has dressed up Angela, a mannequin from from the Turners’ old apartment. He explains to Leanne that he did not know Dorothy was going to treat her as she is for which Leanne asks Sean why he hasn’t told Dorothy what she did to Jericho. He argues that Leanne does not know what Dorothy would do to herself if she was told. On another visit to Leanne’s room, Leanne reveals to Sean that Jericho is dead.

Later over dinner with Dorothy and Julian, Sean finds out that he can taste again much to his delight. The next morning he takes food up to Leanne and he asks for Leanne to bring Jericho home, he does not need to know where he is. The conversation is interrupted by Dorothy returning home, forcing him to leave Leanne’s room.

Early next morning, Sean is awoken by severe pain in his injured hand and he goes to the bathroom to check on it and to redress it. He hunts the house for Dorothy and Leanne, eventually finding Dorothy in the doorway to the yard, covered in mud and blood. He deduces she has done something to Leanne and finds her buried in the rubble in the basement. Leanne has a shower and he escorts her to her room, trying to reassure her that Dorothy is a good person. Once Leanne confirms to Sean that she knows he can feel again, he exits the room.

Ransom

Sean is in the basement, staring at the place Leanne was buried. Dorothy calls his name and he eventually makes his way into the kitchen. He sees Tobe in the kitchen and is surprised to see him there - he beckons Dorothy out into the hallway to discuss this. He believes he has been scammed in terms of how Dorothy is treating Leanne, but Dorothy replies to him that he should be pleased with her in terms of trying a new approach. With this, he goes into the kitchen to clean up after breakfast. While doing so, he listens in to conversations between Dorothy, Tobe, and Leanne about how Leanne is being treated and also about Jericho.

Later, Dorothy shows Sean a package she received with a small plastic baby and a ransom demand for $200,000 to be paid to the recipient at the Franklinville Mall at 8pm. When Julian arrives, Sean greets him and wishes Julian would have explained the plan to him beforehand. Sean is surprised to hear that Julian did not send the ransom note and Sean does not know where it came from. The family decide to pay the ransom, with Sean making $600 for a case of Rovella - much less than what it is worth according to him - and also reluctantly having to consider selling his coffee machine at request of Dorothy.

At 10:45am, Sean goes up to Leanne’s room and she notes that she was supposed to be able to go downstairs in between 9 and 10am. She pushes past him to go and collect her ingredients for her cake. In the kitchen, Sean is presented with a list of ingredients from Leanne that she needs to finish off her cake. Sean knows that he is pressed for time at the moment, for which Leanne suggests Sean asks Tobe.

Before leaving for the mall to pay the ransom demand, Sean gets things ready and Julian advises him to not leave anything to chance. Sean and Dorothy arrive at the mall, and sit down to wait. In a video call with Julian, they are concerned the person they are supposed to be meeting his late, but Julian advises them to wait until closing time if need be which the pair duly do. Later, Sean speaks to Julian alone by the video call and they discuss how the small plastic baby was ordered from Sean’s account. It is here that Julian accesses Sean’s computer and finds the baby in his history.

On their way out of the mall, Sean is with Dorothy as she says to the camera that they will wait for the person they are meeting in the car park. As she says this, the camera is taken off her, to reveal George repeating Julian’s name. Sean walks in the door at the Turner house with Dorothy, also accompanied by George.

Reasoning

Once George enters the house, he shouts Leanne’s name and wonders where she is. Sean is able to convince George to sit down with him to discuss the situation with Leanne, and that George made a deal with Sean that Jericho could stay with them. George says this deal was not with him. When George notes some festering and rotten in the house, Sean notes the pipes are being done. Following George down to the basement, Sean reiterates that it is the plumbing being done that caused the land subsidence and Sean it’s raised but Leanne was there for a week much to the dismay of George.

George checks every room in the house and prays, and Sean is able to convince Dorothy to allow him in to speak with George. While doing so, Sean asks for an explanation about the group Leanne and George are a part of and what they can do to help. After George explains about Leanne’s rebellious streak and how the group help others, he explains to Sean that a way to fix this is to return Leanne back to Mrs Moreno’s house and to pray for forgiveness. If he makes this right, George will undo what Leanne did. He tells this to Dorothy while George goes downstairs to the basement to prepare saf and receives a disgusted reaction to this, not believing what he is saying. After Dorothy leaves, he goes to speak with Leanne to say that they can fix this by taking Leanne back to the other house, though Leanne reiterates that she does not think Jericho can come home.

He develops a plan with Julian to get Leanne out of the house, where Julian distracts his sister. Sean gets ready to leave with Leanne but she makes him promise first to take her far away from her family, not back to the other house which Sean eventually agrees to. Before they can leave, they see a news report of a shooting at Mrs Moreno’s house.

Concealment

With them all watching the news report about the Marino shooting, Sean is told by Dorothy to go and find Leanne after she walks out. He stands outside her door that she has locked and ask her to explain what has happened. She explains to him they are a family just like the Turners and she disobeyed orders to come to the Turners. When Sean asks what happens when she breaks the rules, Leanne does not respond.

When Officer Reyes comes to the Turner house, Sean and Julian carry a catatonic George into the kitchen while Dorothy speaks to her. A few moments later, Sean enters the room and sits down with Reyes and Dorothy to discuss the incident with the Marinos and the whereabouts of Leanne. He prepares some water for Reyes who enters the kitchen not long afterwards with George hidden around the corner. She asks to have a look round the house off the record and Sean follows. They make their way upstairs, and Reyes notes to Sean the research Dorothy has taken into The Church of the Lesser Saints and Leanne. Sean explains the situation with that, highlighting Dorothy’s journalistic instincts. Reyes spots a door leading up to the attic and goes in there, with Sean reluctantly following.

In the attic, Reyes is shocked to see all the crosses hanging up and on the floor and she believes Dorothy has made these. Sean goes along with this, citing that Dorothy goes up there from time to time. After a conversation about mental health and a link between Dorothy and Mr Marino, Reyes feels dizzy and Sean follows her downstairs. He visits Julian in the bathroom where they are keeping George and the pair walk out, leaving George in there. They go back to the bathroom with Dorothy to confront George again. Are interrupted by a package at the front door which is a box containing a Betamix tape which Sean is perplexed by.

George exits the bathroom and asks the Turners where their Betamax player is, which Sean responds to, saying they do not have one. George goes upstairs and Sean is told by Dorothy to let him go. She raises a note, saying the Turners called their bluff. Later, down in the basement, Sean is applying the substance George made to his injured hand.

Revealing Roscoe

Sean prepares breakfast for George which Dorothy takes up to him. Later in the bathroom, he is surprised to see Dorothy leading George out to his grill and he goes out to Dorothy to ask what is happening. After this, there is a knock at the front door and it turns out to be Roscoe. Sitting in the backyard, Dorothy asks about the relationship between Sean and Roscoe and Sean is forced to explain that Roscoe is a private investigator he had hired along with Julian to investigate Leanne’s past. Sean has to explain to Dorothy multiple times why this was necessary to keep this from her.

Later, Sean and Dorothy attempt to go into the house but are blocked by Roscoe who says he was told to keep them away from the house until sunset. Dorothy pushes past to speak with George and Sean escorts Roscoe to the door. He cannot believe it when Roscoe is telling him that the people like George are good people and that he felt compelled to help George when asked. When Sean goes upstairs he looks at his hand and is shocked to see the wound as it is.

Comforting Dorothy

Guests are expected for Christmas Eve dinner, and Sean is outside plucking a goose. After this, he goes into the living room to see Dorothy decorating the tree. He says to her they do not have to do this but Dorothy believes they do. He asks who is attending the dinner and upon finding out that Frank and Kourtney are attending as well as Julian and Leanne, he says he needs to pluck another goose which he duly does.

Later, in the kitchen, Sean is cooking dinner and Leanne enters. Sean likes being the cook as he is able to hide away in the kitchen while Dorothy greets guests. When Leanne says to Sean that Dorothy is expecting Jericho to return today, Sean says to her that he believes there is evidence this may be the case. Leanne asks Sean what Dorothy will do if Jericho is not returned today, and he later reveals to Julian that she would follow Jericho wherever he goes.

At the table, the family joins hands while Sean says a prayer, thanking God for everything they have, but that something is missing. This perplexes Julian who confronts Sean. During the meal, Dorothy thinks she hears something at the front door so she goes outside but there is nobody there. Shortly afterwards, Sean follows her and sits outside with her, comforting her. He gives her the advice to not think about not being united with Jericho today, and to think about what she will do when she is reunited with him. He says, for example, that he will tell Jericho how much he loves him.

They both enter the house and as time passes, Sean plays games with Frank and Kourtney. While in the living room, Sean hears a scream which is coming from Kourtney who is standing over Julian who is on the floor not breathing. Sean performs CPR to no effect, but is thankful the emergency services are on their way.

Later, after Julian is taken away in an ambulance while Frank and Kourney follow, Sean locks up and he hears a knock at the front door. He answers it to see a person asking about Jericho.

Being a father

Sean is delighted to be giving Jericho his first baby food and wants to savour the moment. He is asked by Dorothy to make sure Leanne makes it to the park and is also told by his wife how she has noticed him enjoying becoming a father. Sean has to go out and asks Julian to take Leanne and Jericho for a walk instead. Later, Sean sits with Leanne in the basement looking at the destroyed floor. Sean comments they are waiting for someone to come out and assess the damage and fix it. He is also happy they are on the other side of what happened three months ago with Josephine and he can’t believe it.

At the shore, Sean video calls Leanne to see how she is doing and to update her on their trip. He shows her the people following him behind, but reassures her they are no trouble. He tells Leanne to get a specific bottle of wine from behind her which should pair nicely with some tomato soup. He wants Leanne to relax, citing that she deserves it. He is shocked to find out from Leanne in a later video call that the house is being burgled, and he tells her to hide while he phones the police and gets home with the family. He and the family arrive home to confront the situation.

Not being stung

Workers are outside fitting a security system while Sean is cooking in the kitchen, preparing a meal for guests Dorothy is expecting. Sean gets in trouble from Dorothy over forgetting to tell Leanne about their guests arriving shortly. Leanne is upset, and Sean offers Leanne the chance to stay in the kitchen with him while the guests are here as he could use the help. In response to Leanne saying to him that Dorothy is just doing this for herself, Sean explains that some mothers need more. He gives Leanne dishes to take out the guests to help him out. As the session progresses, in the kitchen, Sean reassures Leanne that she and the Turners will be safe, and he is taught by Leanne things to look out for from cult members such as scars on their backs and dirty clothing.

Later, as Sean is coming out with sauce, he runs into Leanne and spills it all over her. Sean apologises for this. Soon after, while Dorothy toasts the parents visiting, wasps come out of the fireplace and swarm the living room. The guests go outside while Sean checks the fireplace and is amazed he does not get stung. He asks a pest controller who comes up, and explains to him that the wasp nest likely fell down when the security engineers were fitting the surveillance system. Sean however is still surprised the wasps would all come out of the same time like they did.

Helping the homeless

Sean is in the kitchen getting Jericho ready for his walk to the park with Leanne. While doing this, Julian talks with Sean about whether Jericho is Dorothy’s baby and the legal rights that come with this. Sean disapproves of Julian’s idea to do a formal test about this and before they can carry on the conversation, they are interrupted by Leanne. Sean goes for the walk with Leanne and Jericho and they arrive at the park. Sean tells Leanne about the various herbs that can be picked for meals and when he sits down to eat, a homeless person comes up asking if he has any spare change. Sean duly gives them some money, but sees Leanne moving to go home and he follows her.

Later, Sean makes dandelion soup for Leanne which she enjoys and Dorothy walks him from her day at the Marilyn Monroe lookalike contest. The next day, Sean takes a dish to the homeless people who do not respond to him a lot and he makes sure not to go into their space behind the gate. He leaves and goes back home. Later on, Sean is in the kitchen cooking, and there is a knock at the back door which is one of the homeless people who want to use the toilet in the Turner house. Sean duly allows this, much to the dismay of Dorothy who doesn’t want homeless people in the house potentially scouting it out for a robbery. Sean defends the person who came in to use the toilet, citing they are just a kid. While Dorothy is out trying to interview the homeless people, after the incident with Sean and homeless person gave her that idea, Sean comes with sandwiches to give out. As Dorothy is having no luck with her interviews, she duly interviews her husband and Sean is told by her later that she is proud of him.

An accident

Sean calls Dorothy downstairs from her dancing lesson with Leanne as the safety guy has arrived to assess the house for areas that might put Jericho in danger. Sean is uncertain about this and wonders how much is necessary. For example in the kitchen, he is unhappy with the idea that the safety guy wants to put extra locks and devices on kitchen equipment that he will be using for cooking. Later, Tobe and Sylvia arrive at the Turner house, to pitch to Sean how helpful Sylvia can be. Sean is unsure he needs Sylvia’s help and does not like the idea that Tobe brought someone round to to try to get a job. After the pair leave, Sean chats with Leanne and thinks she could be helpful for him for a tricky catering job the next day. He chats with Dorothy about this later, but Dorothy says she is going to be out of the house for the next week and Leanne will be needed to take care of Jericho. Sean tells Dorothy that Leanne already knows the plan, but nonetheless has to move forward with getting someone else to help him.

Tobe and Sylvia are invited round to help Sean and he is very impressed with Sylvia’s work. As Toby is struggling a little bit, Sean tells him to take a break and take some food down to the homeless people at the park. Tobe returns soon after, saying the homeless people are not there and they may have moved on. The kitchen later gets busy for Sean with the trio preparing a lot of food, the safety guy wanting Sean’s input on something, caterers coming to take the prepared food to an event and more. This culminates in Sylvia slipping and slicing her finger off. Coming back into the kitchen, Sean frantically tells Tobe to find her finger and put pressure on the wound. Later that evening, Julian arrives and asks Sean to look on the television at Dorothy’s news broadcast. Sean is shocked and concerned to see the incident involving Dorothy unfold. When Dorothy comes home, Sean sits and comforts her in Jericho’s room.

Seeing a minister

Getting ready for the block party that day, Sean is preparing food with Tobe for his booth at the event. He sees Leanne walking into the kitchen and is very pleased to see that she will be attending the block party, taking a significant step. He also notes termite droppings in the kitchen, pointing them out to Dorothy and Leanne. With the block party in full swing, Sean is serving dishes which includes ice cream made using liquid nitrogen. He is seen by Julian who explains that Dorothy is taking Jericho in front of the news cameras and how this is a bad idea. Sean does not believe it is a big deal and as the pair talk, they are interrupted by Nancy, the minister has been seeing who comes to greet Sean. After she leaves, Julian expresses his concern and asks Sean if Dorothy is aware who Sean is seeing to which he says she is not yet.

Later, once Sean had run out of ingredients, he put the liquid nitrogen back in the house and receives a phone call from organizers at Gourmet Gauntlet. As they explain to Sean a spin-off show is coming to his area, he hangs up the phone. Sean finds Dorothy sitting with Jericho, where Dorothy reveals she met Sean’s minister and was surprised Sean did not tell her. He explains that she would have thought it was stupid and also says it would be good for Jericho to go to church to get some structure and that Jericho already has a relationship with religion due to being baptised. He says to Dorothy that she should give Nancy a chance, and he hears that Nancy is coming to dinner invited by Dorothy, without telling him.

An uncomfortable dinner

Sean is reading to Jericho and then puts him back into his crib. As he does so, his phone rings and it is Taylor from Gourmet Gauntlet. Putting Jericho down, he answers it, telling Taylor that now is not a good time and is interrupted by Dorothy entering the room to tend to Jericho who is crying. After she asks Sean for an explanation of why he left Jericho crying, Sean explains to Dorothy the situation with Gourmet Gauntlet. Despite Dorothy’s encouragement to take the opportunity, Sean explains he does not want to for the family. Later, in the basement, Sean is measuring a crack in the floor when Leanne arrives and speaks with him about his appearance on Gourmet Gauntlet. He restates that he is still not sure, and as Leanne approaches him he trips one leg into a puddle and watches Leanne apologize and walk out of the room. In the bedroom that night, Sean discusses with Dorothy again about Gourmet Gauntlet, frustrated that Dorothy has raised the topic again, and also asks her to be nice to Nancy at dinner the next day.

The day of the dinner, Julian arrives and spots a message on Sean’s device from Taylor. The pair discuss Sean’s options for this, and hears Julian say this may wake Dorothy up from her sleeping beauty performance where she cannot remember Sean’s first appearance on the show. While in the kitchen cooking, Sean enters the dining room surprised to see Nancy had arrived and questions Leanne as to why she did not let Sean know that Nancy had arrived. When dinner starts, Sean serves a fish dish to which Nancy responds she is a vegan so Sean takes the dish away and makes something fresh for Nancy. During the meal, Sean objects to Leanne’s language used towards Nancy and this culminates with Sean banging the table with his hand in frustration. Nancy eventually leaves after actions taken by Leanne and Sean goes after her, but is told to stay away from her. Later, Sean goes upstairs to find Leanne and discuss with her what happened at the dinner table. Sean says he thought they were always on the same side and also says Jericho was brought back through Leanne. In response to Leanne saying God did not bring back Jericho, Sean asks who did but receives a response encouraging him to take the TV appearance as Leanne exits the room.

Trusting Leanne

Sean shows Dorothy, Leanne, and Julian the opening sequence to Gourmet Gauntlet Philadelphia, where he says his parents did not care and that by 17 years old he was homeless. He also says it best that cooking saved him. Throughout the next couple of days, Dorothy comes to Sean with concerns about trusting Leanne, such as Leanne keeping drawings of past events involving the Turners. Sean says to Dorothy that he thinks the Turners are in a very good place at the moment, and wants to keep it that way. Sean also tells Dorothy that household members commonly have drawings that mock other household members, and Dorothy should not worry. After one of these conversations, Sean calls Dorothy in for dinner but Dorothy goes upstairs instead, leaving dinner with just Sean and Leanne. Sean discusses with Leanne the situation with the homeless people and Sean asks Leanne why they treat her the way they do. Leanne responds that she deserves it and they want to learn from her.

The next day, Sean walks in on a conversation in the living room about sending Leanne away and as he asks what is going on, he is told by Dorothy to be quiet or go away. With that, Sean leaves. That night, Sean says to Dorothy that he should have been notified of this and consulted, and receives a response from Dorothy saying she is fed up with being told things are fine when they are not. The next morning, Sean sits opposite Dorothy in the living room as Leanne enters the hallway, ready to leave. Julian then enters the Turner house, along with Vera, to discuss how this is a bad idea to send Leanne away. While Vera takes Jericho into the kitchen, the Turners discuss the situation and Sean tells everyone to stop shouting and stay calm. Leanne hugs all the Turners and then leaves, and Dorothy goes to check on Jericho in the kitchen. Sean hears a loud scream and moves into the kitchen where Dorothy is holding a reborn doll. Sean joins everyone in searching the house for Jericho and during this, he takes the Reborn doll and a ribbon he finds on the stairs and begins to pray. When Leanne enters the Turner house again and reveals Jericho is in the nursery, Sean follows Dorothy up there where they embrace their son. Sean then says to Dorothy that Leanne is staying and - much to Dorothy’s dismay - makes an apology on behalf of Dorothy to Leanne and offers for her to stay as long as she wants.

Return to Gourmet Gauntlet

Sean has been sleeping on the couch recently due to a falling out with Dorothy, and complains of back pain. One morning, he offers the chance for Dorothy to go with him to the set of Gourmet Gauntlet and meet him for lunch. He is told by Dorothy however that it would be too hectic for Jericho. Later, Sean is joined by Julian in hanging a picture on the wall of something Dorothy really likes, in an effort to bring Dorothy back round to his side. Sean has also been fixing other things in the house, which he later shows off to Dorothy. This, however, does not help him win Dorothy back round and she is still upset with him for allowing Leanne to stay. Despite his argument that Leanne brought the family back together again, he is still told he is not going back to their bed and should get a new sofa.

After this, Sean goes upstairs and offers Leanne the chance to come on the set of Gourmet Gauntlet with him to get her out of the house. As he is about to leave, Leanne offers him the chance to stay and listen to the music. This is where Sean opens up to Leanne, saying how he never felt alone before he met Dorothy, but when he did meet Dorothy all he could do was think about her. Now, however, he feels alone again and just wants to hold Dorothy and his son, Jericho. Later, Sean prepares a special meal for the family to act as a celebration of his TV appearance, for members of his household. He is surprised to see that Dorothy is inviting her father, Frank, and his partner, Kourtney, around as well. Later in the basement, Sean is inspecting the floor that has been freshly concreted and is pleased with the results. He then goes to get a bottle of wine out of the wine rack, and finds termites on the floor and where the wine came from.

On the night of the celebration with the family, they play Sean’s appearance on Gourmet Gauntlet. Sean is surprised when Dorothy turns this over to a news story, and Sean watches on as Isabelle is shot in the head.

Helping Dorothy

Sean is having breakfast with Leanne, Julian, and Jericho and Dorothy walks into the kitchen. Quickly, Sean grabs Dorothy some breakfast and tries to get her everything she needs. He also assures her that Frank, as long as Dorothy wants it, will not be welcome in the Turner house. Sean also witnesses Dorothy apologize to Leanne for how she has treated her, and how far it has gone. While Dorothy and Leanne play with Jericho, Sean discusses with Julian the development of Dorothy wanting to cooperate with Leanne and whether they trust her. The pair agree to keep an eye on the situation. Later, while Dorothy is alone upstairs in the dance room, Sean asks Dorothy what she has planned for Leanne, saying she will act when Sean and Julian least expect it. He hears Dorothy say to him that she does not have plans and it hurt her how Sean appeared to believe that she could hurt their son.

Later, Sean is sitting on the stairway drinking wine and Leanne appears further up the stairs, asking Sean if he is okay. He says he isn’t and asks Leanne if she had anything to do with Isabelle’s death, to which she responds that Sean has had too much to drink. He says Dorothy is angry and that he thinks she will do something stupid, and asks Leanne to promise him she won’t hurt Leanne if she does something stupid. As she goes back upstairs, a picture falls off the wall in front of Sean. One evening, Dorothy prepares a meal that Sean had prepared for the family when they first moved into the house. Sean is surprised Dorothy could do it. When Dorothy brings up opening a bottle of wine owned by Dorothy and Julian’s mother, Sean joins Julian in protesting opening it but eventually concedes to doing it. Sean gets some crystal ware to pour it into. As they drink the wine, the family discuss what they taste and as they laugh about this, a figure moves past the window. Later that night, Dorothy comes into Sean’s room and they discuss their relationship, including their disagreement about Leanne and how Dorothy turned to anger and Sean turned to faith. The pair apologize to each other and then kiss.

Later that night, Sean has awoken by screaming and sees Dorothy dressed, with a bag, holding Jericho standing in front of the banister. He asks Dorothy to give him Jericho repeatedly and assures her that nobody is looking at Dorothy in a bad way. The banister behind Dorothy gives way and as Leanne takes Jericho, Dorothy falls to the ground floor. Sean exclaims to Julian to call 911 and to stop standing there and shouts Dorothy’s name.
