Darcy tells Susan she's 45 and it's 2002. She says her name's Susan Smith and she's 16, Flick asks Stuart what he'd do if she said there was a chance they'd be together.
Stuart asks Flick if she's hinting that some day there might be a chance and says he's dreamt of her saying it but she's in no state to trust her own feelings at the moment. Just as he asks if she loves Marc, Marc comes in and Stuart beats a hasty retreat.
Flick's on her first shift at the coffee shop. Summer asks her if Steph has forgiven her yet, then goes on to blackmail Boyd into buying her milk-shakes in return for her silence about the imaginary girlfriend.
Connor and Michelle come in also. While Michelle talks to Flick, Connor sits outside with Stuart, who tells him he doesn't want to go in because of Flick and he's even joining the army because of her.
Marc arrives just as Stuart's telling Connor he's having second thoughts because of what Flick said. Connor's not impressed by his idea, but after Marc tells Stuart coldly that he hopes he's leaving town as rumoured and that he shouldn't be taking advantage of Flick's vulnerability, Stuart says Marc's right and he'll go.
Michelle goes to see Flick at the flat and borrow some earrings. She hasn't forgiven Flick, but she still loves her. She says she understands better, now that she loves Connor, that Flick had some excuse, because love makes you do stupid things. She asks Flick if she does love him like that-so much that she can't help herself, and suggests that this explains why she behaved so badly. Flick says rather hesitantly yes, they love all the same things.
Connor lets slip that Stuart's joining the army, probably the following day. Flick is shaken by the news but says it's because she thought he should have told her.
Marc comes in to the flat where Flick's pretending to be sleeping peacefully on the lounge. He covers her and kisses her gently, saying ‘Sweet Dreams', but she opens her eyes the minute he leaves.
Flick goes to see Stuart and tells him off for not talking about the army to her. She wants to know if it's because of her and he says no, he'd applied ages ago. She admits she'll miss him, doesn't want him to go, but he says he's already signed on, for four years.
Libby calls to see Susan bringing her clothes. She thinks the clothes are a joke and Libby starts to say they belong to her, but then plays along with her, pretending she just brought the wrong ones. Libby reminds her to have a shower and Susan says she likes Libby because she feels safe with her, as though she knew her in another life, in a sort of déjà vu situation. She thinks she's silly, but Libby says it makes her feel really good.
Karl brings in a sandwich for Susan, but she doesn't wake so he sits beside her talking gently about it being her favourite filling.
Libby comes back to visit Susan who's very pleased to see her as she's feeling bored. When she mentions Ben, Susan asks who that is and then whether she's married and if so to who. ‘Is he a hunk?'
‘Yes, he's lovely. You'll really like him.'
When Susan talks about getting a TV to watch Hawaii 50 and that she can't wait to have colour TV, Libby tries to tell her that they've had colour since before she was born. Susan gets annoyed and coldly asks Libby to leave as she wants to be on her own.
Karl's looking for Susan, who isn't in her room and asks Libby how Susan was when she saw her. Libby answers that she was more annoyed than anything and they wonder if she's run away. Karl says anything's possible.
Susan's wandering round near the garage, looking very puzzled at the late model cars. Some teenagers come dressed in their 70s gear for the social and she smiles broadly and follows them.
Susan appears at the Social but runs away as soon as someone approaches her. Connor and Michelle follow her then Connor calls at Drew and Libby's to tell Karl where she is, while Michelle keeps watch. Karl and Libby are just talking about why Susan ran away. Karl is really hurt that she'd think they'd harm her, but Libby talks about what it must be like to be in Susan's shoes.
Summer reminds Boyd about the made-up girlfriend she's keeping quiet about every time she wants something so ends up getting to the social.
There, he lies to Michelle that his girl has German measles, calling her Jane.
Meanwhile Summer tells all sorts of stories about the girl winning a model competition, but using the name Brandy.
Susan is in the cloakroom and catches sight of herself in the mirror. She's horrified. Libby comes in just as she's shaking and whimpering, saying ‘It's true, isn't it…….'
