Izzy manipulating Karl, convincing him that Susan is getting too much from the divorce.
Jack disappearing stuff from the site, loading up a truck and getting a pay-off from the driver.
Olivia telling Stuart it's time to call it quits.
Olivia tells Stuart she'll arrange to get them both reassigned, and she'll say it was a personality clash, nothing to do with his ability. Stu tries to talk her out of it, but she won't hear it. She says he'll thank her in the long run.
Elsewhere in the pub, Jack tells Darren he doesn't have the money, and Darren tells him that it's weeks overdue. Jack tells him he'll get it to him as soon as he can. Darren sits down at a table with Libby. They get back into a conversation they were having before Darren had to talk to Jack. They were discussing going home to play a game. Darren suggests Trivial Pursuit or Scrabble, but it turns out Libby wasn't talking about a board game. Darren agrees it's a much better idea and Libby says they should go to her place, she has an early start in the morning. Darren is worried that the walls are a bit thin, but Libby reminds him that when they were teenagers, half the fun was keeping quiet.
Susan talks to Stu about Olivia's decision. Stuart's worried that it'll make him look bad, but Susan says to just show that he's a dedicated officer and that nothing will come between him and the job. Olivia will see that they can work together professionally, and she might have a change of heart.
Hoyland Honeymoon Hotel
Steph and Max are enjoying their honeymoon, but for some reason, they brought along not only Boyd and Summer, but also Sky. Summer complains that she's bored. Boyd flexes a little for Sky, and Max asks if he's been working out in the hotel gym, which he denies. Max, perhaps feeling inadequate, compares himself with Boyd, asking the females to judge which is the most buff. “They are,” says Summer, pointing to a bunch of guys on the other side of the pool. Steph says that she doesn't find bulging biceps attractive. “More like bags of marbles,” says Max. “I used to love playing with marbles,” says Sky.
When the other guys pose of a picture, Max dares Boyd and himself to go over and join in. And they do. Steph and Sky laugh, and Summer shakes her head, until she notices a boy swimming in the pool. They make eyes at each other for a moment, and he continues swimming.
Karl pops in on a break. Izzy says she's been off her feet all morning. Karl tells her to take the day off, but Izzy says she can't afford it.
Stu meets up with Olivia in the Coffee Shop (both in uniform). Stuart, taking Susan's advice, tells her that maybe they could take on some more work. Olivia says she was planning on catching up on some paperwork, but Stu talks her into it. He mentions a robbery at a building site, and mentions Jack's name, to Mac's disguised surprise.
Susan, on her way out, notices a note on the table, reads it, and starts laughing as she leaves. When the coast is clear, Libby and Darren emerge. With Sindi and Stingray having left earlier, it's just the two of them until Ben wakes up, so they assume they got away with it. Libby picks up the note and reads it.
Next time you make a wildlife doco, could you please hit the mute button?
PS. You really spooked Darl.”
Stu's about to knock on the door when Mac tells him to get the tape recorder out of the car, in case he says something and tries to deny it later. When he goes, Mac knocks on the door. Jack answers, and, seeing her uniform, jokingly asks if she's a stripper. Mac says she doesn't have time to explain, but Jack has to do what she says or they're both in trouble.
The police interview is underway. An understandably nervous Jack keeps looking over at Mac.
Darren says that Stingray couldn't have heard much. “Hello? Wildlife doco, he heard plenty,” says Libby. She seems to be having trouble typing her article, having been sitting there staring at a blank screen for ages. Darren says it's because she's happy, and all great literacy is born out of angst. Libby admits that she is blissfully happy, and needs twenty minutes to get the article done. Darren takes Ben out the back to visit Cassie, so Libby can finish.
Stuart asks about security at the site. Jack says the criminals must have picked the lock, and Stu mentions that it was left unlocked just last week. Jack immediately gets defensive, and Mac tells him that they're just canvassing all possibilities. A lot of these types of thefts are inside jobs and recovery rate is low. They finish the interview, Mac pretending to be all business-like with Jack. They are about to leave when Stuart asks Jack for a list of all the employees.
Darren comes back in, and finds out that Libby still hasn't written much. “Hey I don't tell you how to wire a house,” Libby says. Darren tells her that she can't manufacture angst, so there's no use pretending to fight with him. He surprises her with some flowers, but then has to leave to go to work.
Stu and Mac have popped in so Mac can use the bathroom. Stu asks Mac what happened at the Scully's house. Mac lists several things Stu did wrong. Stu says it was an informal interview and Jack's a friend. Mac tells him that he was there in uniform with her, so it was formal. She also says that she's not feeling well, she's taking the rest of the day off.
Karl comes home to find Izzy lying down on the lounge after leaving the coffee shop early. She tells Karl she wants to enrol in uni. Karl thinks it's something to keep her occupied, but Izzy says it's a business admin course, she needs a full-time job insure financial security for her and the baby. Karl tells her he'll talk to Susan about dividing up the assets.
Susan has come home. Libby STILL has not written an article. Susan asks Libby if she had a nice time with Darren last night. “What does that mean?” Libby asks, fearing that Susan knows. Susan merely mentions that she saw them at the pub. They talk a bit about the relationship. Susan asks if Libby thinks Darl seems alright to her, she was off her food. Almost as if something had spooked her during the night. Libby denies knowing anything about it.
Our favourite honeymooning family and friends are playing tennis: Max and Boyd vs. Sky and Steph. They call a break, and Sky gets a drink. The pool boy from the last honeymoon scene approached Sky and asks about her sister (Summer). Sky tells him she's horse riding, she'll be back tomorrow. When he leaves, Boyd and Sky want to get the game started again, but discover Max and Steph are a little preoccupied. So they decide to play singles.
Libby is FINALLY typing! “Can an exciting volcanic burst of new love be found when an old flame is rekindled? Is it possible to start again from the beginning? Yes. Passion, I'm pleased to report, unlike lightning, can strike the same place twice.”
Darren comes home for lunch for the two of them. Even though Libby tells him she's already eaten, he convinces her to at least have a bit. When she opens the box, she finds a present: a necklace. Darren puts it on her, tells her he loves her, and kisses her. Darren tells her he'll let her get back to the article, before she can't write another word.
Libby continues writing. “But, given all that and more, the mystery remains: why is it so hard the second time around to say ‘I love you' back?”
Jack gets another visit from Mac-in-uniform. “What the hell is going on?” he yells. He tells her that if he goes down, so does she. Mac warns him not to threaten her, it's a stupid thing to do. Jack admits he's scared. Mac tells him to do nothing, just carry on as if nothing has happened. She assures him that she'll make sure Stuart will never find out. No one got hurt, it's a harmless insurance scam, a victimless crime. It'll all work out, she says.
Stuart pays a visit. He needs to see Darren, who is on Jack's list of subcontractors. He begins to question him, and Karl comes over in the middle of it. Soon Darren's previous jail term comes up. “I think I've got the picture,” Stuart says.
