Maggie tells Toadie she realizes how much he put himself on the line by telling her of his feelings
Karl finds Elly looking at the letter with Ian Conway's name on it.
The scene continues with Elly telling Karl how angry she is that he did it without telling her, that she feels betrayed. He has to leave before answering when a patient arrives.
At the Garage
Lou tries to convince Drew he's not indispensable, but Drew's happy to work with one hand and keep an eye on Stuart. Lou wants him also to check that Matt, who's working on the car outside, pays for everything he uses.
Leo asks Matt to go for a drive later, but Matt's very snappy and tense with him, more or less tells him to go away. Leo suspects he's going drag-racing again. Drew comments that Leo seems lonely and asks Matt why he's carrying out so much high-performance tuning for simple suburban driving. Matt's telling Drew he's seen Harold doing some very serious power-walking when Lou joins them and it obviously starts him thinking as Drew and Matt laugh at the idea of Harold with a pumped-up body.
At the coffee shop
Tad asks Leo why he didn't go to Adelaide for the comp and Leo admits tetchily his father wouldn't allow it.
Elly wants to tell Tad about what Karl did. He's surprised they'd do something so underhand, but she thinks they desperately want to get rid of her.
Some aggressive teens bump Emily off the table. Leo starts to challenge them, but backs down and takes Emily home.
In the pub
Tad's started work there. Harold's in, collecting money and Lou starts to tease him about his fitness regime. Lou and Harold are trying to match fitness/stamina stories when Joe asks bluntly if Harold's getting himself ready for the ladies again. Just as he bumbles through, Rosie arrives and they change the subject fast. They're not too happy as she has Colin, a friend, with her.
At No 30
Toadie and Maggie are working on their case when Matt calls. He leaves quickly on seeing Maggie and Toadie follows him out to tell Matt that he was stupid, nothing will happen and they're back to a professional footing.
Harold and Lou are madly fishing for information about Colin and Rosie talks about how their relationship is very long-standing and much more than friendship. She strings the disappointed would-be suitors along for a while before finally announcing he's her brother, much to their obvious relief.
Tad mentions to Karl and Susan how upset Elly is that they looked for her father. Susan's angry as she didn't know. Karl says he'll take no further action even if the man is the right one, if Elly chooses, but Elly doesn't want to find him.
Toadie's practising a speech in front of an admiring Maggie.
‘You should be a barrister.'
‘You mean when I grow up?'
‘I think you've already done that', giving him very tender looks.
Susan and Karl find Elly and try to ask her what it is she wants. The conversation goes from bad to worse and she accuses them of just being afraid she'll want to stay with them.
At the Hancocks'
Maggie's gazing into space when Leo comes in and asks if his father's brave and strong. She thinks Evan's not easily swayed, sticks to his convictions. Emily lets on about the boy in the coffee shop so Maggie's not happy Leo nearly resorted to violence. He reacts very angrily that you're not a real man if you just back down.
At the garage
Lou arrives in exercise gear and Drew teases him about his new fitness routine. Matt comes to collect the car, apparently a man with a mission. Lou hassles him about payment, but Drew's picked up on the urgency and wants reassurance he's not going to do something stupid.
Karl sends Elly off on an errand so he can give Susan the Ian Conway details, to make sure he can't act on them. Lou arrives, having hurt his back power walking.
Harold's there again, ‘endangering his immortal soul', Lou thinks. Joe arrives to do a quote on some kitchen work. Elly has sneaked in to ask Tad why he told Karl and Susan, but eventually thanks him for his concern.
Susan admits to Karl that she gave in to temptation and rang Ian Conway. It's the wrong man, so they agree to forget the whole thing. (Or so they say)
Roadside near a lake
Harold's power walking.
In what seems to be a pre-arranged meeting, some young guys catch up with Matt-the bet is now $2000. He's nervous but says he's confident.
At No 30
Toadie's talking about the case but Maggie's lost in thought. ‘Toadie, there's something I want to say to you'
…On the roadside again
Just when the drag-race is about to start, Leo insists on getting in with Matt. They're just pulling ahead when Matt's distracted, looks away and swerves, causing both cars to run off the road. Matt's car hits Harold, sending him flying. In the aftermath, Matt's car's almost hidden by trees, the other car's obviously badly damaged where it has hit a tree head-on. The screen freezes as we see Harold roll over on the ground, eyes shut, mouth open.
