Davenport leaves Adam, Bree, and Chase in charge of the Bionic Academy while he celebrates his anniversary. Leo invites Janelle to the island, but gets distracted by his nemesis/frenemie.


Davenport goes home to celebrate his anniversary with Tasha. Since he is gone Leo brings Janelle to the academy telling her it was a vacation. He tells her he is a mentor and pretends Spin is one of his students, which gets Spin to challenge him to a Bionic Dual. Durning the fight Spin fakes an injury to take Janelle from Leo to get revenge. Meanwhile Bob takes Davenport's jet on a joy ride. Bob gets stuck in it when he turns off auto-pilot. Adam goes to save him and takes the blame when Davenport comes back and finds out what happened.



Main Cast

Recurring Cast

Mentioned Cast


  • This episode is part 3 of the "Escape To The Bionic Island" story-arc.
  • This episode takes place approximately two years since Crush, Chop and Burn.
  • Spin wore green clothes despite wearing orange in the past episode, this means he was demoted at some point between First Day of Bionic Academy and Adam Steps Up, the reason why is never explained, but it is theorized that the cause was he annoyed either Chase or Mr. Davenport, as they are the only ones who actually control and enforce the rank system. It's also possible Mr. Davenport understood he promoted Spin unfairly in the previous episode.
  • Bob is colorblind—he cannot distinguish red from green.
  • A new Jet-Wing was built. However, Adam destroyed it again.
  • Janelle has visited the Bionic Academy in this episode.
    • This is also Janelle's first time in the Bionic Academy.
  • Spin and Leo fought with their bionics in this episode.
  • Tasha was not seen in this episode, but she was mentioned. She was on the phone with Donald, and was upstairs in the house before Adam and Bob crashed in.
  • As the episode title states "Adam Steps Up", Adam did actually step up when Donald blamed the team for everything that has happened. Adam says it is not their fault, it is his.
    • Bob and Donald both acknowledged Adam.
  • Sebastian and Bree's relationship is growing stronger, as they are staring and laughing at each other.
    • Chase thinks Sebastian messed up because he was staring at Bree. Bree didn't seem to like that Chase blamed him for that.
  • Spin pretended to get hurt in his leg, using Janelle for sympathy.
    • Janelle catches Spin to be perfectly fine, and confronts him.
  • Spin finally gets punished for something he actually did wrong. However, Leo also gets punished.
  • Shockingly, Adam survives a drop from several thousand feet, mainly because of his super strength. If it were anyone else, they would have been killed for sure.
  • This is the second episode with the word Adam in it. The first being Adam Up.


  • Bob was unable to reactivate the auto pilot because Chase ordered him to push two red buttons, but Bob, being colorblind, couldn't distinguish red from green. Since Chase told on screen that the panel had no green buttons, Bob could have reengaged the autopilot by pressing the green buttons on command from Chase.
