Max telling Boyd and Izzy about Gus returning to the house, and sending Summer to New Guinea.
Libby coming to the Coffee Shop and seeing Karl and Izzy flirting.
Gus creeping alongside number 32 and looking in the windows at Izzy, who has taken a pregnancy test.
Izzy studies the test, which has shown up “positive”. She then goes outside and throws it in the bin. Gus, watches through the side gate.
Karl enters to find Libby and Ben with Susan (this is the first time he has seen them since her return). He sits down to catch up with the two. Libby explains that she has turned down her new job because she misses her parents too much. Karl is delighted.
Gus waits until Izzy leaves the house, then sneaks out and takes the pregnancy test out of the bin. He looks at it, then says out loud, “Dad. Nice.”
As Max and Lou set up the pub for the day, Lou notices looks a little distant. Max asks if Lou has noticed anything odd around. Lou says he hasn't, and asks about Summer. They then get onto the subject of Shadow. Lou says he'll pick her up after work, but Max tells him he dropped her around the day before. When they realise she's missing they both leave to investigate.
Lyn introduces Oscar to Libby. Karl asks about Making Mansions (he missed it). Lyn tells him how bad it was, and he tries to tell her it couldn't be that bad. Izzy arrives for work and an awkward silence falls on the table. Karl heads to work, asking Libby if they can catch up later. Susan asks Libby to visit Karl, and not to take sides in the separation. Libby tells her that it's hard not to have sympathy for him, but agrees to see him. As Izzy watches Oscar and Ben bonding, she realises she can't work today, and tells Harold “there's something I need to do.”
Lou and Max come in after trying to find Shadow. They have no idea how she got out, or where she could have gone. Max begins to suspect Gus is behind it.
A second test confirms that Izzy is pregnant. Izzy is shocked. The doctor then tells her that after some surgery she had undergone previously, which involved removal of her ovarian cysts, it was a miracle she got pregnant at all, and that this could be her only chance to have a child.
Libby visits with Ben. She admits she was really angry when she got the news of the separation in Adelaide. She's having trouble dealing with the news. Karl worries about all the people he's hurt from the separation. Libby tells Karl that Izzy is making it harder for her to cope. Karl tries to convince her that nothing is going on. He tells her that he still loves Libby, and Mal and Bill, and nothing will change it.
Lyn and Susan, with Father Tom in the room discuss Gus. Lyn emphasises the importance of going to church. Lyn is acting very jumpy around Tom.
Libby and Karl have calmed down a bit. Karl tells her that he and Susan seem to be heading towards a divorce. Libby can't help but wonder about Karl and Izzy, even though he says nothing is going on. He explains that he did have feelings for Izzy, but she made it clear she isn't interested. Libby is surprised to hear that Karl has feelings for someone other than Susan, but is relieved that Izzy won't become her stepmother. Karl assures her, “not Izzy, not anyone else at this stage”. Libby tries to find out why Karl has suddenly become dissatisfied with his career and his life, and tells him that he may have blamed Susan wrongly for it. He admits he did consider trying to run away from his problems, but he can't when they're inside his head. When Libby leaves, Karl invites her back, and Libby says it would be nice. The two share a nice hug.
Tom leaves, thanking Lyn for the meal. Susan asks Lyn why she is so jittery around him. Lyn tells her it's because he's a priest, so while she's trying to be a good Catholic, he makes her think of her sins. Susan tells her she thinks there's another reason, and, changing the subject, Lyn asks her to check on Oscar for her. Susan is determined to find out Lyn's secret.
Max installs deadlocks and explains to Izzy about Shadow missing and Gus's possible involvement, “it's the kind of crazy thing he'd do”. He realises this comment upsets Izzy and suddenly remembers their relationship. Izzy gets very emotional and Gus comforts her. He tells her that Gus is gone and they need to take care of each other now, forget about Gus.
The service has just finished and everyone is walking out. Izzy enters the building, sits in a pew and looks around. Changing her mind, she gets up and begins to walk out, but Tom comes in. She tries to leave, explaining that her mother is an Anglican minister and she's heard it all before. Tom tells her that means “we can skip the preliminaries and cut to the chase. If you like.”
While folding washing, Libby and Susan talk about Libby's visit with Karl. Libby tells her not to give up on Karl, and that divorce is not necessarily inevitable. Susan tells her that she and Karl getting back together won't happen, at least not in the near future and maybe not ever.
Izzy explains her situation to Tom, including details on what the father is like. Izzy asks about Gus's rights to the child, if she goes through with the pregnancy. Tom tells her that he has no rights as long as he's a threat to Izzy and the baby, but she must also consider the baby's rights: the right to a loving father who will do his best to guide, protect and nurture. Izzy asks about the alternative. Tom explains that it's hard work being a single parent, but many people do it brilliantly. Izzy decides it's the best option. Tom tells her it's better to find someone to share her life with, and maybe the Lord has someone picked out for her already.
Izzy visits Karl, who is surprised to see her. She tells him that she has thought about what he told her yesterday, and tells him she wants to be with Karl, and they can make it work.
