It isn't until in Dawn Master, the first merged episode, where the tables turn for both relationships. In the beginning, Dawn is still with Scott, while Cody is still with Gwen. This does not last long in the merge, due to Dawn starting to miss Cody while Scott telling her that she deserves to be with Cody more. Dawn agrees so both break-up and Dawn happily goes back to look for Cody. The timing is convenient though as in the same time, Cody also breaks-up with Gwen due to them getting in a fight about Cody being attracted to Mike, so Cody runs off alone while Gwen stays in the forest.

Cody then makes a plan with Scott to try to take down Gwen, which they eventually succeed, but at the cost of Cody being low with Gwen. Cody, now worried that if him losing will cause him being separated from Dawn, also says that he rather go instead and let Dawn stay in the game, but Scott says that is not a good idea since Gwen and Dawn alone together in the semi-finals will eventually lead to Dawn’s demise. Cody then agrees so all 3 of them take down Gwen for good now, and Gwen is voted out and declared 4th place. Cody and Dawn, now left alone together in Goth Girl Gone with the help from Scott, now lead into the semi-finals and are again very happy with each other.

Dawn and Cody are once again left alone together, so their only thing left to do is make it to the finale together. Cody says that they will win since they both got the most points, but Dawn is not yet so sure so just to be safe she forces Scott to lose by cheating, without Chris knowing thanks to Blaineley’s stupid manners. Scott then loses and receives 3rd place so Dawn and Cody are now declared as the finalists for the season, making them very happy. This marks the first and only time the couple make it into the finale together. They enjoy the first part by competing against each other while everyone else who was previously eliminated all return to cheer for them, including Gwen. Cody and Dawn then start the challenge, but they spend most of their time kissing each other, annoying Chris, Chef and especially Gwen. Chris then tells Cody to stop kissing Dawn and Dawn to stop helping Cody since this is a competition, not a love drama. They then agree and try to stay apart while competing in the challenge. However, due to an unexpected fight between Chef and Blaineley, Chris then asks Cody and Dawn to fight each other. This finally causes Cody to give up and state that competing against Dawn is not a good idea, and Dawn agrees. Chris then decides to call off the challenge since they won't cooperate, so as soon as Chris almost eliminates both of them for not having a clear winner, Dawn then steps in and quits, so she can get 2nd place and officially let Cody in the ultimate finale.
Chris then allows Dawn to quit so Cody automatically wins the finale and everyone cheers, even Dawn. This doesn't end happy for the couple yet as Cody 3 returns and since he still loves Dawn, Cody 3 then runs down and forces Dawn to be with her. Cody, now mad that Cody 3 is back, tries to stop him but him being alone causes Gwen to get him back. A major relationship mayhem then happens so Cody and Dawn go separate ways for a brief moment. As soon as it ends Cody and Dawn get back together and share plans on what they will do once Cody wins the money. During the second part of the finale, Cody and Dawn are no longer competing, but Alejandro and Evil Cody instead. However, Cody 3 returns and tries to get with Dawn again, but this time Dawn goes along with it and confronts Cody 3 just to get it over with right away. Cody then gets mad at Dawn, but Dawn says that Cody deserves it after all his cheating with Gwen. Cody then allows it so Dawn and Cody 3 then hang out together during the whole finale. Cody then takes advantage of his free time and goes hang out with Zoey, since Zoey already has a crush for him. Zoey and Cody 3 then get happy with their new lovers and both sides hug and kiss while they cheer for Don's finalists. Evil Cody then wins so Cody now has to face him in the ultimate finale.
Finally, the Ultimate Boney Island Showdown is here and Cody and Evil Cody go and fight against each other. This means that Dawn is left alone so she hangs out with Cody 3 instead while Cody competes in the first part of the finale. Cody wins the first part and Dawn then gets happy. Don then hosts the second part and states that he needs helpers, so Dawn volunteers. Dawn goes along and joins Cody as a team against Heather and Evil Cody in a soccer game. Dawn is not a very good goalie though, as she gets scared and ducks when Evil Cody kicks the ball at her, making Cody lose. Cody however, does not get mad at Dawn since he loves her so much, and that this also only makes them tied. The third and final challenge however, involved Dawn hosting, so as soon as she takes over, she asks Cody and Evil Cody to kiss each other. Cody, no longer wanting to cheat on Dawn anymore, refuses, but then Dawn says that Cody wanted to share love with the other Cody long before he met Dawn, and that this was long overdue. Cody then agrees and cheats on Dawn one last time. They then perform the final challenge and Cody wins, making the couple very happy.
