Before the show

Despite Eldon's anger at Emily for embarrassing him, Eldon rejects joining the group, not know if he can purposely hurt her. Nonetheless, he votes for Michelle over Emily for dance captaincy, deciding that he does need to put Emily behind him.[7]

Eldon is reassured by Emily about her relationship.

Eldon worries that Emily moving to Elite Dance Academy will ruin their newly acquired relationship, but is assured that he and Emily will remain together.[10]

After becoming Michelle's duet partner and spending more time with her, rather than with Emily, Eldon finds himself developing feelings for Michelle. Eventually, Eldon assures Michelle that he will break up with Emily to be with her, which will be easy since she is at another studio. Although, his plans are halted when Emily spontaneously returns to The Next Step.[11]

Eldon tries to approach Michelle countless times about their relationship, but is ignored. When Michelle finally tells him that she wants to be with him, he lies that he no longer likes her.[12]

Season 2

Eldon decides refocus on Nationals, especially being the team's male soloist for the event.[16] Eldon is angry when he loses the solo to Hunter after a video them competing in the dance battle surfaces, and feels betrayed to discover that Michelle is responsible for showing the video to Kate in the first place.[17]

Eldon is initially humoured by Hunter's quest for his friendship. After shoving Hunter's peace offering of a chocolate cake into his face[18] and winning his solo back from him,[19] Eldon also becomes Michelle's friend, helping her with her female solo.[20]

After Amanda leaves the studio, Eldon becomes a part of a newly constructed small group. Around this time, he realizes that he is bad with relationships, and James proposes that he doesn't date until he can do 30 pirouettes.[21]

At Nationals, Eldon must face Daniel in the solo round, made all the more important in that Daniel leaves the studio in the first place because Eldon has the solo over him. Eldon easily wins the round[22] and also wins the small group round with his group members.[23]

He quickly rejoins the team after learning that Daniel will be competing in the competition.[26] Ironically, Eldon is forced to face Hunter in the dance battle. He wins and, while happy that he has secured a spot on the Internationals team, is sad to have defeated his new friend.[27]

Eldon falls for Thalia but, despite her reciprocated feelings, is unable to date her due to his agreement with James. Eldon attempts to spend time with Thalia through clandestine means that evade the rules of the agreement, but is eventually unable to speak to Thalia at all.[28]

Eldon loses his lucky quarter[30] and his replacement pound in the Everglades.[31] With the loss of this coin, Eldon fears for his prospects in the male solo round. Despite Thalia's encouragement, Eldon loses to Kyle, much to his chagrin.[32]

As the competition continues, Eldon grows immensely suspicious of Bartek as he befriends Thalia. He fears that in addition to the loss of his coin and title of Mister Internationals Soloist, that he will lose Thalia.[33] Eldon is delegated as the team's representative for a turning competition of which will decide how much time his team has to rehearse their five person dance to new music. Eldon is nervous to compete until James revises the agreement so that he can date Thalia if he wins the competition. Eldon wins and is embraced by his now girlfriend. Nonetheless, Eldon remains wary of Bartek. [34]

Eldon is elated when the team wins the competition, but fears what the future will hold.[35]

He is initially wary of going but decides to attend the competition after doing 31 pirouettes.[6]

Eldon is left speechless when he receives a text from Thalia telling him that she will be visiting him. When Thalia assures him that she actually went to Poland to explore her heritage and that she loves him, Eldon is so shocked that he faints 3 times. When he comes to, he immediately assures Thalia that he loves her too.[37]

In Piper's alternate reality, Eldon becomes a full-time DJ under the name of Electric Eldon.[42]

Emily hires Eldon to choreograph Lily and Kingston's Nationals duet. Upon seeing Lily and Kingston fighting he forces them to resolve their differences. Although the resolution of Lily and Kingston's fight leads to them being too soft and nice to each other and ultimately ruining the dance. In an attempt to reignite the fire in the duet, Eldon creates a fight between the two dancers which results in a much better dance.[43]


Eldon is initially clingy and entitled, as he continuously asks Emily out for years and becomes angry with her continuous rejection. He is not the brightest of people, in fact, is hardly able to construct logical notions independently. Sometimes, with this idiocy being so theatrical and often being paired with his awkwardness, it verges on comedy. Eldon is also immature and naive, shown through his failed relationships with Michelle and Emily. Nonetheless, he remains desirable by girls.

Eldon is a dedicated — if not obsessive — dancer, as he admits that he watches videos of dance by night, trains and perfects it by day and then performs it.[9] This expertise mixed with his extensive classical training causes him to occasionally be patronizing, evident in the way he condescends Hunter, West, and Noah about their dancing. Although, he able to acknowledge prowess and talent.

Eldon has wildly conflicting spiritual beliefs. He appears to follow an esoteric form of religion due to his belief in sweet spots, although, this could merely be a byproduct of his superstition; before major competitions he does not wash his socks for three weeks,[44] drinks a specific beverage, wears a specific shirt, carries a proposed lucky orange, and carries a proposed lucky coin before losing it. Although, Eldon believes in an "alligator god" which largely mirrors the ancient Egyptian's belief in the god, Sobek, a spirituality that is not correlated to his aforementioned beliefs in the slightest.
