Jody: Everything you said... ..all your letters... Your phone calls about getting the family back together... I believed you. What an idiot! Change your ways, Kingsley.

Kingsley: Or what?
Jody: You'll be back in prison before you know it.

Two For Joy was the 20th episode of Series 4 of The Dumping Ground and the series finale. It was first broadcast on 2nd December 2016 at 4:30pm on CBBC and CBBC HD.


Mo, Bailey and Tyler discover that Jody has been taking the others' belongings to her brother, Kingsley's, flat, where Jody soon finds herself in trouble.


  • This is the first episode to not feature any of the young people from Series 1 of Tracy Beaker Returns.
  • A photo of Jody, her mum and her brothers taken during the filming of S.O.S. is seen in this episode in Kingsley's flat.
  • This is the second time the final shot of the series has not been on one of the characters, but rather a shot of balloons followed by a fade to white (also known as a Wash Out).
  • Final appearance of Reece Buttery as Mo Michaels.


  • When Ryan's confession note fell off the string on the balloon, it is very unlikely that it would've just landed in Chloe's lap.
  • When Chloe confronts Ryan about his confession about getting Mike suspended, she somehow got upstairs, and down the smaller steps outside the bathroom, by herself even though she is in a wheel chair.
