This article focuses on the interactions between Harold and Owen.



Harold is glad that Owen returns in Rock n' Rule.

Owen and Harold's interactions are limited in Total Drama Island, due to being on different teams, and Harold's elimination right before the merge. However, there are several indications that the two are friends. In Total Drama Action, they have little chance to interact pre-merge as the two are once again on different teams, but they become much closer upon Owen's return. However, their friendship gets challenged when Owen is hired by Chris to become a spy and Harold discovers the truth, leading to Harold's elimination. Harold and Owen have little to no interaction in Total Drama World Tour, due to Harold's early elimination and being on different teams yet again. However, based on the minimal interaction they share, it appears Harold has forgiven Owen for the previous events and never mentions their brief conflict again.

Total Drama Island


At the start of the episode, when Harold enters the main lodge with a mustache drawn on his face, Owen joins everyone in laughing at him. In the challenge the two are pitted against each other, as the last two standing members of each of their teams. Harold is at first nervous after realizing he is facing Owen (who performed exceptionally well before), however Owen apologizes to Harold wanting to point out that he is just doing it for his team, and not because of how he feels towards Harold. Harold gains confidence after this and performs some ninja moves before motioning Owen with a bring-it-on gesture.

Harold vs. Owen during the final moments of the dodgeball challenge.

Owen charges towards Harold and throws three very fast shots at him, but to everyone's surprise, he acrobatically evades all of them. Now an angered Owen puts a lot of spin behind his final ball and launches it at Harold, but he leans backwards and it passes over him (to everyone's amazement). After returning from a timeout, where the Killer Bass explain to Harold he needs to catch the ball, Owen once again throws a power-shot at Harold, which causes him to smack into the wall. Owen grins in satisfaction, but Harold then holds out his hand and reveals he succeeded in catching the ball. Owen is distraught by this and collapses to his knees, screaming "WHY!?", while Harold is now his team's hero and is carried out on their shoulders.

After the challenge has ended, Harold tells Owen how he is glad to have him back in the competition, while they are on their way back to the trailer. They also converse with Beth and Lindsay on who to vote off. All of them agree to vote for Duncan, except for Owen due to his friendship with him and still being bitter over Courtney for eliminating him the first time.

Crouching Courtney, Hidden Owen

Owen, now hired to be Chris' mole, has been tasked with stirring up some drama by sabotaging the teams. In the first challenge, Owen is instructed to give one of the teams an unfair advantage. He watches both teams training and takes notes, surprised by Harold's killer left hook. However, during the challenge, he is unable to decide which team to help as he feels guilty. He warns Harold (and Duncan) about Beth's killer kick, but he's unable to stop himself from giving the girls some information as well.


Harold thanks Owen for giving him and Duncan some information.

Having won the first round, the boys move onto the next challenge, in which Chris tells Owen to accompany them and continue his sabotage. When Harold discovers the challenge involves climbing a mountain, he asks Owen to look after his pet snail Leshawna Jr. for him. By this point, Duncan and Harold had ended their usual conflict and decide to agree to cooperate, where they both work very well together. Owen has a very hard time trying to break them apart. He tries to convince Duncan and Harold to betray each other, reminding Duncan of how fun it would be to prank Harold, while telling Harold that Leshawna Jr. is telling him to attack Duncan. After several failed attempts, Owen finally sees an opportunity when Duncan finds Harold's attraction to Leshawna funny. He asks Harold to explain what he likes about Leshawna which Harold is happy to do so. However, Duncan cannot stop himself from making fun of Leshawna's weight, which finally angers Harold enough for him to punch Duncan, knocking him out. Having finally succeeding in breaking part their truce, Owen accompanies Harold for the remainder of the challenge where he steals the bonsai tree from Sasquatchanakwa; however, he runs off afterwards leaving Owen to be mauled by the purple yeti. At the end of the episode, Owen serves Harold a banquet prepared by the girls.

At the Award Ceremony, both of them try to vote each other out, but ultimately it was Harold who received the most votes. As he is dragged to the Lame-o-sine by Chef, Harold continues to attempt to warn the others about Owen's role.
