Darcy telling Izzy he knows her secret.
Mac telling Stu to let the suspect go.
Darcy slipping down the stairs.
Creepy music plays and we cut to a shot of Darcy who suddenly opens his eyes.
Stu questions Mac how he knows Trevor and why they just let him go. She says he's just an informant, but Parker isn't buying it one bit.
Cue to the creepy music, as Darcy has broken the news to Karl that he is not the father of Izzy's baby. He explains all the lies and deception Izzy has used in order to protect her little secret, as Karl picks up the medical records. Karl is devastated, not knowing what to think as he thought she loved him
DARCY: The only person she loves, is herself.
Izzy comes in and Karl tears into her while Darcy yells out that Izzy tried to murder him by pushing him down the stairs. More confusion and chaos as she tries yelling over the fray to explain her actions…
Of course, that was all a figment of Izzy's imagination because the next scene is Karl comforting Izzy from her bad dream. She sleepwalked into the lounge and Karl said she'd been talking and mumbling things in her sleep. Stuff about being sorry…he jokingly asks if she is keeping any secrets for him. He blames the bad dreams on her flu and takes her back to bed.
IZZY: You're too good to me.
KARL: That'd be the whole, ‘I'm in love with you' thing.
Mac confesses that Trevor is her business partner in ripping off those building sites in the past couple of weeks and denies Darren Stark and Jack Scully as accomplices to the crimes. Ever since she joined the police force, there has been an immense pressure from her family's tradition to perform well…and she just used alternate measures to get rid of it. Stuff like clubbing, Stu guesses and she admits that for the short term, it made her feel good. She knows that by telling Stu all of this puts him into a bad position, but she could not keep on lying to him.
STU: What the hell am I suppose to do now?
We see that Stingray is combing push-ups and studying up on history. He explains to Susan that it is an “efficient use of time and energy” so that he'll tire out all his extra energy. When she asks how his comprehension is going, Stingray impresses her with the information he just read. Sky comes a knocking to walk Stingray to school and informs Susan of how bored Boyd is at camp with all the studying. Stingray asks about Serena, but she at home with the flu. Susan mothers Stingray, giving him his healthy lunch and adjusting his clothing, explaining that if it gets all too much for him at school than all he has to do is excuse himself and go find her. He brushes it off, saying he'll be great!
STINGRAY: I'm going to ride the bucking bronco that is my brain!
And with that, he offers Sky a piggy-back ride and off they go.
Karl and Izzy's Flat
DARCY: It's for the best that it all comes out Isabel. You need to learn this lesson. Cause you know what? The truth always comes out in the end.
This time, she really wakes up and looks extremely exhausted. Karl comes in and rushes over, comforting her. She mutters that it's all ‘bad dreams' but Karl thinks it's her worry about Darcy. He stresses again that Darcy cannot ever hurt her again…and if he wakes up, he'll be put straight into jail, Izzy finishes.
Lou, who is doing his community service as a cleaner at the school, talks with Susan about seeing Lolly and how great it was to see her. Sky and Stingray walk past and she comments how sad it is, as he was once the Mayor of Erinsborough. He doesn't think it's such a big deal, explaining how his brother Dwayne, did his stint of community service after he stole a big ice-cream cone from a milkbar. He takes off to do some laps around the oval and accidentally bumps into Lana, who is not impressed
LANA: So what's the deal, everyone here is as socially challenged as him?
Sky informs her that Stingray is a one of a kind and a very good friend of hers. Awkward moment again, before Lana asks if she has seen Serena yet, however she is at home ‘purging up porridge'. With no one to show her around, Lana asks if Sky would do that and she hesitantly agrees.
Once in class, Susan announces their new student, Lana Crawford and asks her to introduce herself. Lana used to go to Wattle Heights, and lived in Canada before that. Her parents just moved here and thought it'd be easier to come here than travel the 40 minutes. Susan begins to discuss, “The Importance of Being Ernest” by Oscar Wilde and Lana makes a snide comment which Sky and Stingray are unsure of how to take.
LANA: Hey, wasn't he like a raging queen? What are we suppose to learn from him, how to zhuzh a men's toilets?
Steiger congratulates Stu and Mac on working a fine partnership, noting how their productivity has been very strong. Mac assures him that any mishaps from the beginning are gone, praising Stu on his excellent skills as a police officer. Stu suddenly gets up to leave, but Steiger stops him by the bar and asks what is really going on. He tells him that Mac comes from a long line of good officers and warns him to only admire the professional side of her and not the other. Seeing that it's not that, Steiger offers a confidential ear to him, should he need it.
Karl and Izzy's Flat
Karl tiptoes into the flat and bypasses Izzy who is sleeping on the couch. He goes to kiss her on the forehead, but she flinches away. In her dream, Darcy appears and places a towel on her forehead, mopping up the sweat whispering to her that she needs to rest, Gus' baby needs rest. Again with a start, Izzy wakes up and yells to ‘get of her house', totally startling Karl. She barks at him for sneaking around while she's worried about Darcy. Karl sits down with her and they talk about her dreams. He wants to help her through them, but Izzy wants to work this out by herself, after all, it's not as if they are a ‘literal reflection on my state of mind' but more, ‘garbage bags of the mind'. He agrees to this, remembering the time he dreamt about riding on a white unicorn…naked. The scene ends with creepy piano music.
Stingray runs up to Sky, panting after running around again.
SKY: You know, the whole burning up energy thing may not work, but you're gonna get real fit. You might even get a hot bod sooner.
STINGRAY: Ha! Who says I haven't got one already Sky?
SKY: Aww yeah, the only better thing than your scrawny arms is your decorated derriere!
STINGRAY: Plenty of goodies for everyone sweetcheeks!
Across from them, Lana points to the “tragic garbo” asking who he is. Sky answers that his name is Lou and she continues to ask Stingray about if the exercise is working. He says it's no problem, he was able to listen and understand Maths and English classes! Lana overhears him talking about Oscar Wilde and comments. “Ooh watch out. If he likes Oscar Wilde, he'll be flapping out the rainbow flag next.” Lou walks by them and Lana makes another comment about how lame he is and Sky defends him.
LANA: Don't tell me he's your grandad too.
SKY: No, he's my grandad's best friend!
Stingray asks if that was meant to be an insult, but Lana brushes it off as having a ‘bit of fun'.
Karl notices Susan by herself and goes to talk to her about how Carmel is doing. She also informs him that the divorce hearing has been set for 2 weeks time. Karl leaves and Lou comes in. Susan asks how the first day went and Lou says it was pretty good and the kids are good natured. Nevertheless, Susan assures Lou he can come to her if he needs it.
Stingray and Sky come bouncing in and Susan asks how the day went. Stingray only managed to do one handstand in biology, but the teacher was totally sweet about it. Well, apart from the chemical burns…and then runs outside. Sky says that he actually ate all the healthy food Susan gave him by betting someone he could eat all of it while hanging upside down in a tree. And of course he won. They talk about Lana, Sky think she comes across a bit judgemental but Susan thinks they just need to give her some time as she had a bit of trouble at her old school. Stingray runs back in with his arms full of Libby's clothes and once dumped on the couch starts attacking them with a fire poker. Susan steps in, not sure that Libby wants her clothes full of clothes and he steps up and continues to joust the empty air assuring them that he'll be knackered enough in 10 minutes time to do his homework. They sigh and smile as they know the old Stingray is back.
Mac thanks Stu for not saying anything to Steiger but he's not so sure because what does this make him? He looked up to her and now asks if he is going to stop the clubbing and the robberies now? Mac replies that he has given her the chance to get it right now, however for him it's a ‘bit damn late'. He's about to say something else, but she is already gone.
