Michelle finding out about Connor and Lori.
Lou throwing his mobile away and skipping town.
Sky is telling Boyd all about home and worries that she's boring him, but he says that it's not because it makes her happy. “I wish I could make you happy,” he adds, but then laughs saying that it sounds stupid. Sky doesn't think so though and kisses him, telling him that he does. Harold and Serena come back from the shops, interrupting them. Boyd says that he better get going and do some work at the garage. Sky and Serena go with him.
On the way to the garage
The trio make their way to the garage. Serena is aghast to learn that Boyd only makes $6.50 an hour and is about to make a getaway when she spies Scott playing basketball. “Hey Scott, the ball's supposed to go in the hoop!” Scott throws her the ball and challenges her to a game. All four of them start to play, boys versus girls.
Michelle and Jack walk in to see Connor in there. Michelle ignores him and he walks out looking sad. Jack says that she can talk to him about Connor if she wants. She says that she's happy she knows about Lori, “but could we please talk about something else?” Jack starts to tell her about a band that's playing at his Tafe while Connor peers through the glass door, giving his best wounded puppy look.
Harold is holding the chick while leaving a message to Lou, wondering where he is and if they could have a chat about the money. Lil and David walk in and Harold tells them that he won't be able to help out with Serena's camp unfortunately, until he hears from Lou.
Sgt. Scaremonger is showing the new recruits some self-defence techniques. He is picking on Stuart and calling him a girl because he can't knock him over. The sergeant pushes Stu's face into the padded mat, “You found your earring yet, Parker?”
Outside the garage
The kids are still playing basketball until Scott says that he has to go to Mrs K's for a study session. Sky teases him saying that she thought he didn't need a brain to ride skateboards into walls. When he leaves Serena berates Sky for making him feel like a loser. “You're just stressed out Serena because you've got the hots for him and you're just too scared to do anything about it!”
The sergeant is still picking on Stu. He is blocking the punches that Stu is throwing at him, but also hitting him in the stomach pretty hard. Stu has had enough and gets in a few punches of his own, knocking the sergeant to the ground. “Don't worry about kicking me out, because I quit.” Stu storms out the door.
Boyd and Sky are mucking around in the kitchen when Harold walks in on them yet again. He finds it funny though. Sky serves a man and his son. They make small talk and Sky asks if he's been in before because he's got a familiar face. He says he hasn't and they get going. “Come on son, let's get going to Bogong Lake before everyone else gets there!” Sky freezes, “Bogong Lake?” “Yeah, it's the opening of the duck season today,” the man replies before leaving. Harold walks to where Sky is and asks if she's alright. Sky's on the verge of tears, “That man. He's the one, grandpa. He's the one that shot my mum!”
Michelle and Jack have just come back from seeing the band play. Shell says she liked Jack's friends and “that Josh guy was pretty cute.” “Yeah, he's not my type,” smirks Jack. They talk about Jack's newfound work talents and how he could go and study architecture next year at Eden Hills Tafe.
Susan gives Scott a break from his studying so he can have some lunch… vegies. She persuades him with some fish fingers on the side. He says he'll eat them if he can have some gravy, a lot of gravy. It's gravy soup with a side of vegies. Serena comes around to drop off a book for Scott but he won't listen to her or take her helpful advice.
Connor is trying to convince Stu to go back to the academy tomorrow to make a complaint but he doesn't think it's a good idea. Connor answers the door to the sergeant much to Stu's annoyance. He leaves them to talk. The sergeant looks at Stu, “I'll have a coffee, without spit. We're gonna sit down, and you're gonna listen.”
Connor can hear a ringing sound coming from the front of Lou's place (Max's name comes up on the mobile screen), but before he can investigate he sees Serena and chats to her. She tells him how Scott didn't want her help and Connor tells her how he couldn't read a while ago, “it's not easy being the stupid guy who fancies the smart girl.” Before Serena can ask who the smart girl was, Connor spots Michelle taking Harvey back home and runs up to her, asking her to wait there while he gets something.
The sergeant says to Stu that he's got a commitment problem, “it's gonna rule your life if you don't beat it.” He also tells him he's got a lot of potential. Connor speeds in and out of the house, grabbing a book on the way. Stu wonders where this leaves him. The sergeant says that if he fronts up to the academy in the morning with the rest of the recruits, they'll see how he goes from there.
Sky is back at home with Harold, David and Lil. Sky's outraged that the man that killed her mother could still have a gun licence. She says that she's going after him but they all think that's not such a good idea. Harold stops her from going out the door, which enrages Sky. She goes to her room angry and upset.
Connor is reading Michelle a passage from the book, ‘In Love: Romantic Book Of Verses'. They're sitting in the cubby house out the back.
Two people together, irrespective of any distance or circumstance that aims to keep them apart. It moves across boundaries and borders and laughs in the face of adversity. I did not choose to love you. I fought and I cursed and I toiled, but love knew every time I look into your eyes I fall deeper.
Michelle says it's beautiful, but it doesn't mean anything. Connor thinks it does, and every time he reads it, it reminds him of how much they've overcome and how they're meant to be together. Something stirs inside Michelle and they kiss. Jack sees them when he's bringing the bin in. He looks like he wants to say something, but he just jokes around and leaves them be. Shell and Connor say they love each other and kiss again.
Scott's study session has finished and Susan wonders if he's going to take the book Serena left for him. She says she knows she isn't his mother, but tells him he was pretty rotten to Serena before. Scott says he doesn't want to be anyone's charity case. Susan states that Serena just wants to be a friend to him. She reads out a list of ADHD symptoms to him. “Look, I know it's hard to hear it like that, but that's how people are going to see you if that's all you show them.” Boyd pops by to see if Scott wants to go for a skate. Scott hurries out, but not before he grabs Serena's book and a piece of broccoli. Susan laughs.
David says that they should all go with Sky to keep an eye on her, because they all know that she's going to go anyway. Lil and Harold are stunned. David tells Harold that he's not the only one with a stake in this, Kerry was his sister. Harold looks morosely at David, “I was the one who identified the body… I'm not going to do that again.” David gets upset and goes for a walk.
David walks down the driveway and spots Sky sneaking out of the house. She hesitates only for a second, then gets defensive and says she's going to the duck hunt and she doesn't care if he tells her granddad. “She was my sister. How do you think I feel seeing him walk around like her death doesn't matter? I'm coming with you.” He smiles at her and she smiles back incredulously.
