Lil finding out David took Serena away for the weekend
Dylan and Sky finding the Erinsborough folder at Affirmacon
Lyn and Bobby kissing
By the lake of lurrrrrrve
Lyn breaks off the kiss, saying they can't be together, but is a little disheartened when Bobby agrees. He lays it on thick though, expressing how unfair it is that they can't explore their feelings… unless… Lynnie's up for a daytrip to a German-themed lodge he knows of in the hills? He speaks some German (the new language of lurrrve) to her, which makes her heart all a flutter. It apparently translates to, “To be alone with you would be a dream come true.” But who can trust the man, really? Lynnie thinks that's beautiful and Bobby (taking a line out of ‘Bobby's Book of Lines for the Laydeez' – page 40) replies with, “And so are you.” Cue pashing.
Outside the Bishops'
Serena and David are back from their trip to the stables. David has an unfortunate case of horse riders bum, causing him to walk like he's straddled a cactus all day.
SERENA: You are so funny, you only rode for an hour and your horse wouldn't even trot.
DAVID: Yeah well how come my bum feels like its half worn away?
Lil greets them from the end of the driveway pretending that she's not mad at David for stealing her weekend away idea. Serena tells her about the great time she had and how they even went on a shopping spree. They make their way into the house leaving Lil stewing on her lonesome.
Cosy German-themed Cabin – Wundabar! Heimlich! Strudel!
Now that Lynnie and Bobby are in the cabin with the roaring fire and the bottle of champers, Lynnie's having second thoughts about the whole ordeal. She thinks it feels a little cheap but Bobby doesn't think what they're feeling is cheap at all. He starts phase one of persuading her by lounging all sexy-like on the bed saying they could just sit and relax. “I just want to be with you, Lyn,” he growls. What's that I can hear? Why it's return of the bow-chicka-bow-wow brigade. The room just got 69% sexier my friend. Lyn smiles and sits herself down on the bed next to him. Bow-chicka-bow-wow. They look into each other's eyes and have another smooch, slowly falling backwards onto the pillows. Wocka-wocka-WOW-blingy-bling-bow.
Lil's taking out her frustrations on Karl by venting about a certain patient who cancels appointments all the time and by snatching folders off him. Janae walks in to talk to Karl but Lil practically throws her out the door because it's closing time, not knowing about the counselling sessions. Karl guides Janae into his office though telling Lil he'll close up for her.
LIL: Really? Okay, great. Well I'll see you tomorrow then. Let's hope everybody's in a better mood.
Karl starts his appointment with Janae.
Sky throws the folder from Affirmacon on the table in front of Paul.
SKY: Read it and weep, Robinson.
PAUL: What is this, some of your teen angst poetry?
She says she knows that he's been intertwined with Affirmacon from the start. Paul wants to know where the rest of her proof is but she obviously missed that day of lectures on gathering sufficient proof at Spy School, for she has none. Paul also informs her that none of this evidence would hold up in court because of the illegal way in which she obtained it. “Some advice?” he sagely offers her. “You've got a smoking gun against Affirmacon, don't blow it.”
Lil swings by to see if Serena's interested in going to Sydney with her next weekend while David pretends to read his World Soccer magazine on the couch (World Soccer? For Dave?). Serena tells her that she doesn't need to compete with her dad for her affections, “It's not a competition.” Lil asks for a private word with David so Serena makes her way to the eavesdropping hallway.
LIL: How can you stand there and not be totally ashamed of yourself?
She can't believe that he would doublecross her like that but David doesn't seem to deny it. He thinks that he has the right to do what he likes because she's the one that walked out on them. Lil tells him not to play that card anymore, what happened is between her and David; they don't need to drag Serena into it. David's worried that Lil will turn Serena against him if she takes her on holiday… but it turns out that David has done that exact thing to Lil (psst – there's a Serena-shaped shadow in the doorway you guys). Lil's outraged and upset that he would do such a thing. “I was right to leave you,” she says, voice wavering.
Serena looks upset standing in the eavesdropping hallway.
Janae is there on the premise of having a check-up but she really just wants to chat to Karl about Janelle and other family related things. Janae says that her and Bree have to do everything now that Janelle's on strike, but whenever Stingray does something simple like put a glass in the sink, Janelle thinks he's the best thing since sliced bread. “It makes me want to scone her!” Karl laughs and says it sounds like the time Libby was jealous of Billy when they were young kids because she thought Karl paid more attention to Bill. She ended up throwing all of Bill's toys on the lawn, which was a wake-up call to Karl. He advises Janae to give Janelle a “gentle nudge” every now and then to remind her she's there.
KARL: Next time you need to chat just make an appointment through the school
JANAE: I'm sorry I wasted your time then.
KARL: No not at all, I'm glad you came.
JANAE: Yeah right.
KARL: Listen to me. I'm still learning about this counselling game and every time I talk to you, you teach me something.
Janae smiles, liking that she's actually useful for something.
Karl, David, Harold and a bunch of mute but outraged randoms loiter around the plans Sky took from Affirmacon while she tells them all about the dastardly company's tactics. Karl says they'll surely have something for Toadie to build a case on now but Sky somewhat guiltily says they can't use it because of they way she obtained it. “There is another way around this of course,” a deep voice rings out from behind them. The randoms part like the Red Sea to reveal Paul sitting at a table in the back. David snitches that they want nothing to do with him but this doesn't discourage Paul. He tells them to get a subpoena so the evidence can be used in court, and to also leak the news to the press, they don't have to reveal their sources. Harold thinks this is marvellous and wants to contact Toadie right away. Karl, David and Sky know this is a good thing but perfect their death stares in Paul's direction anyway.
Cosy German-themed Cabin – Full of sexiness, ja?
Bobby lies in bed with no shirt, kissing Lyn's neck while Lynnie tries to dress herself. He wants her to stay so he drags her back on to the mattress. They see that they haven't drunk their champagne. “You have tempted me quite enough for one day,” smirks Lyn. “See you soon,” she adds, making her way off the bed. “Not soon enough for me,” baritones Bobby (‘Bobby's Book of Lines for the Laydeez' – page 56).
Once Lyn has disappeared, Bobby is left posing in bed like the front cover of a Mills and Boon novel. He's already bored, what is a man to do? Yep, you guessed it.
The phone rings at Susan's place and Lil pitches the receiver to her. She's surprised to hear from the Bob-Meister. He has called to tell her three simple words, “Champagne on ice.” Susan asks if he has spoken to Lyn yet and he tells her he has (well he kinda did anyway). Bobby invites her to The Bavarian Lodge, “all the rooms are very comfortable – cabin three in particular.” Susan ponders this for a minute then says she'll be there soon.
While Serena is cooking dinner she tells David she overheard him and her mum talking before. She thought that he wanted to spend time with her but obviously he just wanted to keep her away from Lil. David says that's not true, he was just scared of losing her. Serena tells him she'll always be there for him but to not put her in the middle of things; she doesn't want to be used as a weapon against Lil.
Cosy German-themed Cabin – Edelweiss!
Bobby has dressed himself and freshened up the lurrrve cabin just as Susan appears for her visit.
BOBBY: Perfect timing. The spa is filling, logs are burning, champagne is about to flow.
SUSAN: (looking around sceptically) Yeah well don't pop your cork just yet.
She wants to talk about Lyn and whether or not Bobby actually spoke to her today. He says he did, more or less, and that she was fine.
SUSAN: You were going to talk to her, straighten things out?
BOBBY: I did some straightening.
BOBBY: She responded very well.
Too. Many. Jokes. Cannot. Compute. Bobby doesn't want to talk about Lyn anymore and asks if he can pop his cork now. Susan says he can, but she won't be sticking around. “Sorry Bobby, you're a lot of fun in *every* conceivable way. But I'm afraid it's time for the fun to stop. Cheesy German hideaways are just not my scene. Sorry.” She gives him a smile and leaves. Guess Bobby popped that cork a little early there…
Lil is surprised to see Serena at the front door. She tries to offer her some breakfast but Serena just wants to chat. She tells her mum that she knows everything; she overheard them last night talking.
SERENA: I'm sorry I've been so mean to you.
She says she's only been taking sides because it's been confusing for her. Lil tells her it's okay and hugs her. Serena doesn't want either of them to hide things from her anymore, “it only makes it worse.” Guess that means Serena will be hearing about her new surrogate daddy sometime soon judging by Lil's guilty look.
Outside the General Store
Lyn spies Bobby sitting at a table and almost runs away but ends up deciding to sit down. He tries to sway her into skipping work and spending the day with him, reciting more German as an incentive to make her all giddy. “I was lonely last night after you left.” Yeah, for all of two seconds, LIAR! Lyn admits she didn't sleep much either.
LYN: Thinking of you, y'know, us, the future…
BOBBY: (alarm bells sound) The future will take care of itself, Lyn.
Harold sees them and asks if Lyn's staying for a coffee but she says she has to get to work. Before she goes on her merry way she takes a piece of paper out of her bra and reads the German off it she wrote down from somewhere. I have no idea what it says, but I'm sure it's something of the sexy variety. Perhaps, ‘You are the bubbles in my spa of delight'… or perhaps not.
Hey, David's working there! Where's your snazzy bowtie, young man? He tries to make a joke with Harold but Harry is in no mood, he's just seen Serena upset in the car park and she told him all about “the stunt that you pulled.” David goes to check on her but Harold says she'll be there in a minute for the protest meeting. He says that Serena has every right to see her mum but David is concerned about Lil taking her away from him. He starts yelling about it all (“I just HATE what's happening!”) with Karl sending sympathetic looks his way from his table.
Clandestine Meeting Place
Lil and Paul have secretly met up because Lil can't take lying to Serena anymore; she wants to tell her about them. A person snoops around the perimeter spying on them but we don't see who it is yet. Paul agrees that they should come clean, his own kids already hate him, and he doesn't want Lil to have to go through that. We see that secret spy person is Sky, armed with a digital camera. She *did* learn something at Spy School after all! She takes a picture of them kissing but looks very unhappy and shocked about her discovery.
