Flick goes up to Michelle and sees she is upset. Michelle says that she has to do something she should have done a long time ago. She gets up and confronts the bullies and asks how long this will go on for. Michelle starts to cry and tells Flick that she wishes they'd never moved there.

Michelle gives Cecile a mouthful about her actions and then Michelle and Bianca walk off together. Flick has seen all this from a distance.
Geri tells Libby off for leaving her at the side of the road while broken down. Libby brushes this off and says she's going to Marguerite magazine about Geri's perks from Mike Ellis, Lyn and the other businesses.

Geri asks why Libby is doing this - is it because of Drew?(!) but Libby says it's about ethics, nothing else.

He says he wants to meet up with her and talk, but doesn't want to make trouble in her life. It's quite an emotional letter and Harold is very touched. He tells Tad to send it as it is.
