Before the Show Edit
One day, John comes home from school, looking to show his mother a drawing he did that day, he finds her lying on the bed. He initially assumes that she was sleeping, but it turns out that she took her own life. This event changes John forever, causing him to become very shy and quiet. John started the band with Luke, deciding on this in the middle of a video game session with Luke. John became the back-up vocalist and lead guitarist in a band with James, Theo and Luke.
John continues to struggle with telling Michelle about his feelings for her. Michelle suggests being just friends and John agrees. The awkwardness between them disappears and they start to hang out more often. Eva reaches out to John for a favour. She finds herself wanting to get her first kiss out of the way and John does as well so they decide to use each other as this meaningless kiss. They struggle to kiss each other at first but at the end of the episode they do and both realize they're ready to make moves on the person they really like, Michelle being John's person of choice.
John finds himself noticing a worsening mental health in Clara to the point of him assisting in her taking time off of music to go to a hospital. Once seeing this play out he is reminded of how his mother acted. He then reveals that his mother committed suicide and he found her. After this he shows signs of similar issues by sabotaging himself with Michelle. At the end of the finale Michelle declares her love for him after he tells her he is broken and he doesn't want to hurt her.

- ↑ It is presumable that Lost & Found Music Studios is set in Toronto, where The Next Step is set. John has been seen driving before (in the episode, "Invincible"); and, in Toronto, to drive, one must be at least sixteen years old, meaning that 16 is the minimum age that John could be. In a synopsis of the show, it states that the Lost & Found Music Studios musicians are in high school, in which people are between 14 and 18 years old, meaning that this is the maximum age that John, a Lost & Found Music Studios member, could be.
