Serena says she'll look after contraception.
Karl tells David Liljana's condition is potentially fatal.
Sindi argues with Stuart and they kiss.
Garden at No 30
Stuart and Sindi are kissing. Jack runs down to fetch his jacket and when he sees them tries to sneak away again unseen, but they both catch sight of his back. Stuart recognizes that it was Jack and wants to go to explain, but has no answer when Sindi asks him ‘how?' as he leaves.
Liljana tells David there isn't going to be an operation Karl says there's little alternative. She feels that someone she loves will have to put themselves in danger for her. Despite Karl's reassurance that there are few dangers, she replies to David's comment that when they know she won't be able to stop them, by saying that that's why she doesn't want them even to know. David and Karl both look stricken.
Stuart and Sindi are fighting about the kiss and who made the move, who was keen, when Toadie comes in and wants to know what the argument's about. Sindi makes up an excuse about footie colours, which Toadie takes seriously. He wants to ‘get together' his two favourite people and to their dismay insists on taking a photo of them. He tells them he can't see any reason in the world why they can't love each other.
When the three women have left to make tea, Harold tells David he's allowed to be frightened too and doesn't have to pretend to the family. David almost breaks down as he responds that he's afraid that if he lets his guard down he won't get it back up again. The last thing Lil needs is for him to fall to pieces.
Toadie sits on the lounge with Sindi and Stuart on either side. He tells them the problem between them is probably because they are too alike. Stuart goes off to bed and Sindi tries to leave too. Toadie persuades her to stay and tells her that he wants to get back together with her again. She tells him that she won't be made a convenience of so he can just see her whenever he feels like it but he says he's had the last two days of her being totally off call and he couldn't stand it, because he missed her. They kiss and seem to be going to bed when she says they can talk in the morning. He grins, saying he wasn't really thinking of talking and she becomes angry, asking him if he hasn't listened to one thing she said – can he just say a few nice words and she'll be back where she started? He offers even to buy her a ‘rose in a cylinder' and she storms off, saying she's now officially off-call again. He just yells after her ‘Ah, come on!'. In turn she stops just outside the door, looking upset.
Harold suggests the girls go to bed soon as David won't get much sleep at the hospital and will need them all to help him. Svetlanka tells them that if they need someone to talk to, she and Harold are both there. She says goodnight to Sky and tries to do the same to Serena, but gets a very cold reception. Harold says that Svetlanka can stay there for the night but she wonders if that's appropriate. He answers that after a day like they've had, any help they can give one another is appropriate. Besides, he adds, if anything happens the hospital will ring there first. She agrees.
Serena complains that she's being treated like a child by not telling her everything, which Sky queries – her mother is seriously ill, her dad's worried sick and all she cares about is how she's being treated? That does seem childish. Serena comments that really she wants to know if she can help at all, but then despite Sky's objection, leaves to see Luka, saying she can't explain it, she just needs to see him.
Serena and Luka lie on their backs in the candlelight. Serena tells him that she tried to explain to Sky that she needed to see him, but Sky thought she should be with the family. He comments that Sky's right and counters her reaction that he feels like family to her by saying that he feels the same but thinks that she should go now. If he had a family like hers, he'd treasure every second. She should be there. He takes her home ‘before he changes his mind'.
Lyn and Jack discuss the move to Bendigo. He says he knows she's worried about the move so why won't she talk about it? Lyn says she's not worried, but happy to be going as she'll be with hid dad and her place is with him. She just wishes she didn't have to leave Erinsborough for it. Jack asks what Joe thinks and she admits that she hasn't told him, because he's committed to the farm. Her voice weakens as she lists that he's happy there with ‘the cows and chooks'. When Harold brings part of their order, Lyn asks about Liljana missing the party the previous night. He tells them there's some rather awful news.
Sindi's sitting with a bunch of flowers when Toadie arrives. He apologises for immediately seeming to take her for granted the previous night and says he did a dumb thing and is sorry for it.
TOADIE: I put it down to EFS syndrome. End of footie season. Makes a man do crazy things.
SINDI: How do you account for the rest of the season?
He realises she's still serious and quietens, saying that he stands by what he said – he wants them to get back together. She starts to cry, saying ‘we all do dumb things from time to time'. Lyn arrives and comforts her, assuming that she's crying over Lil and continues to hug and reassure Sindi while Toadie looks on.
Luka's hovering then steals a roll off the counter while Harold talks to Jack. Stuart arrives complaining to Jack that Connor let to visit Maddie and left him with the cleaning. He tries to make light of the party and that they had maybe ‘too good a night', but Jack comments seriously that Stuart had ‘a bit of a late night'.
STUART: You know how it goes.
JACK: Yeah I do – but there's Toadie?
Stuart has no answer.
David and Karl come in and Liljana realizes their faces are very serious. Karl says that tests proved that David is not compatible. She's shocked that he went ahead to be tested and is adamant when Karl says the only real option is blood relations. She asks who she'll risk – her mother or her daughter and says she won't put them through that. Karl replies that he won't hide the fact that it's traumatic surgery and risky, but does she want to put her family through the experience of knowing they might have been able to help her but that they weren't given the chance? David comments gently that it's their only option.
Jack tells Stuart that people will be pleased that he and Sindi have sorted out their differences. Stuart tries to protest but Jack tells him he doesn't have to explain – he and Sindi ‘got it on'. Stuart makes all sorts of excuses like the late night, drink and their losing their heads for a second, with no relationship. Toadie must never know. Jack agrees over that but tells him that if he does have a thing for Sindi, he needs to get over it now or it will be a disaster for all three of them – as he himself well knows.
Lyn is chattering away about nothings and Lil is obviously tired, so she leaves. Liljana presses David to go and ask Karl what it was Serena had been consulting about, which they were talking about when she collapsed. She's so worried he agrees to go.
Lyn meets Jack and admits she hasn't rung Joe. Jack insists and dials his father, saying Lyn wants to talk to him. In an aside, she's saying she doesn't wants to, but greets him cheerily with ‘Hiya love, how are you doing?'
David has told Harold, Sky Serena and Svetlanka that a tissue donor might be needed. The women all want to be tested and Svetlanka and Serena start to squabble about it. David gets angry and asks them to keep the petty sniping to themselves. Left alone with Serena, Svetlanka tells her they can't be distracted by petty matters and she must stay away from that boy.
Lyn has been chatting to Joe about Liljana so when she finishes by saying there's nothing else to report, Jack tells her she should have said something as she's supposed to be joining Joe in a couple of weeks. When she replies that it's delicate and will take time, he reminds her sharply that she's always said that honesty is vital in a relationship.
Serena brings food which Luka wolfs down. Seeing she's down, he asks about her mum. Serena tells him that they need a donor and Liljana may not have much time. He says he'd do anything if he could help – even try to be a donor, but she tells him that only really close family have a chance of being compatible and even then there's no guarantee. She snuggles up to him saying that just his being there is a help.
Stuart arrives and asks Sindi if they can talk. They make all sorts of excuses for getting confused and agree that everyone knows they hate each other, then get very close to kissing before Stuart suddenly says he has to go and leaves, with Sindi looking very worried and confused.
