He was living in Valencia. At home, Chelsea's parents begin to fight and, eventually, split up. Charlie reveals that Edward reciprocated Tom's feelings and they got together.

Tinkle Like a Princess

Ed makes his first appearance, where he and Tom are seen arguing over little things in their relationship (chronological time of their previous marriages, cleaning pet Skipper's leavings, ect), nonetheless, Ed and Tom express sympathy for Charlie's depression and then leave together when Chelsea asks them for some privacy so she could talk with Charlie.

I Found Your Moustache

Charlie tries to win Chelsea back and turns to Tom and Ed for some advice, both of whom were arguing about each other's choice of furniture for the apartment. Both Tom and Ed offer advice to appear in control, not needy. 

This Is Not Gonna End Well
