He walks up to her and kisses her, symbolizing the start of a new relationship.
Sam and Freddie are a couple but they keep fighting and after solving 1 problem, Carly ends up being their involuntary 'couple's counselor'. This starts driving Carly mad when Sam and Freddie end up going to Carly at 3 in the morning for a stupid fight.
Carly then ends up being dragged into a dinner date with Sam and Freddie but gets really upset when she has to sit at a table by herself. After a second fight between the two, Carly loses it and goes home leaving Sam and Freddie confused. In the next episode, Spencer is forced to lie to Mrs. Benson about the whereabouts of Freddie because she doesn't know about his and Sam's relationship. Because Sam is in a relationship with Freddie, her previous torture monkey, her new torture monkey is Gibby.
Gibby doesn't like how Sam treats him so he decides to consult with Mrs. Benson about Sam and Freddie's relationship. She doesn't approve, so she and Gibby devise a plan to break them up. Benson about them, causing her to attack Gibby in retaliation. Because of this, he and Mrs. Benson force Carly to reveal to them that Sam sabotaged Freddie's application to a prestigious camp; which they use to make him angry at her.
However, Carly stops the fight and helps Sam and Freddie make up, with the help of Gibby, who sends Mrs. Benson away having had a change of heart. In the next episode, Carly suggests that Sam and Freddie try each other's hobbies, but when Sam visits Freddie's model train club she blows up the trains, Freddie gets kicked out. Then Sam takes Freddie to visit her Uncle Carmine and Cousin Chaz in prison, but she also makes him put ham in his pants which eventually gets him caught by security, angering Carmine and Chaz.
Sam and Freddie end up deciding to break up at the end because of something Carly said that they overheard about their relationship being forced by a connection they have but their personalities are too different.
The relationship ends on a relatively friendly note, with hints of rekindling should one of them work on their personality.
Almost immediately after breaking up, Freddie admits to Sam for the very first time that he loves her, and she says she loves him, too; causing them to prolong their break-up for one more night together. After the first few episodes of this season, T-Bo moves into Freddie and Mrs. Benson's apartment in "Bushwell Plaza", after being evicted from "The Groovy Smoothie", making him Carly and Spencer's neighbor as well.
Sam and Freddie help him do this by disguising him as a respectful gentleman, which initially works. Benson finds out his true personality later and decides to kick him out.
But after he assists her with rescuing the gang from a psycho-obsessed fan and her family, she decides to let him stay.
