As his kids and Bree chat in the corner, Harold tells Alex he looks well after his trip in the country compared to how he looked before he went away. Back with the kids, Zeke and Rachel gush about their trip and tell Bree they'll go to her house when Alex visits Susan. Bree breaks the news that the Timmin's don't live in Ramsay Street anymore.

Dylan takes Sky into their new home for a coffee and she tells Dylan that he'll have to watch his temper living in close proximity to Stingray. Dylan gets a touch of the blues when he can't make Sky a cup of coffee as the gas is empty and he tells her they're back where they started off and knew it was too good to last living in Number 26. Sky tries to tell him his family is doing well and he's doing well too since he came out of Juvie but Dylan can't see it.

Alex tells the kids it is time to go home before heading to Susan's, and Rachel asks if Bree can come and he says yes. Alex leaves to get a bottle of champagne and the kids discuss how his mood has become better too following his trip away plus he never stopped talking about Susan too. Zeke invites Bree to go with him tomorrow to see an exhibition on Australian reptiles at the Science Museum and she says yes.
Paul arrives home and is shocked to see the table set as if royalty is due to visit and Elle is all sweetness and like. He tells her it isn't necessary but she tells him that she has to fill in her days somehow. She then asks if they can do something together at the weekend if he isn't busy and he agrees to think about it. Elle isn't impressed though when he mentions that Izzy should come too and tells him she is enjoying spending time alone with her dad. She notices Paul holding a brochure he has for the hotel and comments that it isn't very good, so she asks him for a job in the family business. Paul is unsure about it because she wants to go straight in at the top as his right hand woman, so she offers a compromise starting low so she can work up to it.

Harold is doing some impromptu warm up exercises before going to band practice and David asks if he can come along...to play! Harold subtly tries to put him off of playing the tuba in the band but he is having none of it. Thinking quick, he tells David that he'd need to begin on a beginner's instrument like a triangle or a tambourine and David says he'll love to have a crack at playing the tambourine.
Dylan tries to get Sky to drink a beer but she rejects it as it doesn't taste nice and rejects the offer of a wine too for the same reason. He asks why are they in the bar then and Sky says it is to cheer him up and she likes being in a bar since she turned legal but Dylan doesn't appreciate Sky's gesture. She then asks him for help doing her portfolio and he immediately says yes until he realises it may involve posing in the nude, and then it is a resounding 'no'.
Susan is glad to see Alex back as she has missed him. He tells her that he missed her too and that he wants to wake up every day with her in his arms, and go through life's challenges with her by his side. Susan loves what he has said, calling it the most romantic thing anyone has ever said to her. Alex goes down on one knee and asks her to marry him but the dreaded commercial break arrives so we don't know what Susan said.
During the commercial break, the kids have taken up residence outside the window to spy on what is going on. With Alex still on bended knee, she tells him that marrying him would be wrong. Now feeling like a fool, he gets back onto the seat and the kids quietly open the door to listen to what is being said. After telling him all the reasons why she should say no, she then admits that she is having a bit of trouble thinking sensibly and adds the fact of living without him terrifies her.
SUSAN: So, my senseless, irrational and completely wholehearted answer to your question is yes. Yes please. I'd love to marry you.
Susan is just about in tears at this point and Alex has a grin on him like a Cheshire cat. The kids (plus Bree) barge into the house to have a mass hug as way of celebrating.
Sky is trying to get Dylan to pose nude for her as she needs it for her portfolio for getting into Art College but he having none of it. She debates if she should ask Boyd instead as he has a nice body.
Paul and Elle come into the bar and he is telling her why she can't have a job with him but she isn't buying it.
They go over to ask to sit with Dylan and Sky and Dylan takes Paul aside to thank him for the concierge training he organised and wonders where he is going to end up next. With a look on her, Elle volunteers to give her dad a hand to get the drinks in. As they make their way to the bar, she tells her dad she isn't pleased that he can find a job for the local Bogan but not her. Paul replies that Dylan earned his position.
As Susan and Alex gush at each other in the kitchen area, Bree tells Zeke and Rachel they have scored the perfect stepmother in the world with Susan. Susan brings the drinks over and asks if Bree wants to stay for supper but she forgot she was buying mince for their supper and quickly leaves before Janelle does something to her! Before she goes, she tells Zeke she is *so* looking forward to going to the museum with him but after she insinuates they could be the next Romeo and Juliet he has gone rather quiet.
Rachel notices the picture on the wall of Susan's kids, so she tells them all about her kids and their relationships. Rachel says that Susan is too young to be a grandmother, which goes down very well with Susan. Susan hopes that her kids will be pleased with the news of them too.

Harold is trying to teach David how to play the tambourine but David can't quite grasp it. Lil suggests they 'practice' outside as it is putting the customers off. Harold announces he's off to band practice and David assumes he is going too until Harold tells him that he can't keep the beat and will throw the whole band out of kilter. David and Lil put pleading faces on and Harold compromises by telling David that if he can get it right, he'll take him next week. David promises to practice every day to get it right.
Elle joins in trying to get Dylan to pose nude and he eventually gives in. Paul comes back with the drinks and asks Dylan for his thoughts on creating another trainee position alongside him. Dylan isn't opposed to the idea as long as 'he' proves they are up to it. Elle can sense what her dad is hinting at and tells him the new guy will be her. Dylan is stunned but Elle is happy.
With the place in near darkness, Bree practices putting on make up for her "date" with Zeke when Dylan and Sky burst in thinking there was a burglar in the place. Sky asks why she is there and Bree replies that she had to get out of the bus to get some peace and quite but Sky notices the make up on her. Bree says she is experimenting for her date with Zeke and Sky thinks it is cute. She tells Bree that she doesn't need to put any make up on as she has beautiful eyes. Bree is thrilled to hear this and Dylan tells Bree it is time to go before Janelle freaks anymore but Sky asks him to come back once he's taken Bree home.
Elle is on the phone to her mum telling her a pack of lies as to what she is doing and where she is. Paul unfortunately has heard the whole conversation and wants an explanation.
Dylan returns to a candle lit store impressed with what Sky has done. He is less impressed though when she tells him to get his gear off when he susses that she has turned the salon into a studio. Sky threatens again to call Boyd and he fast forwardly removes his clothes, boxers too! Sadly we don't see too much due to the way they've shot the scene but Sky's drawing leaves little to the imagination!
Paul is on the phone to Gail telling her Elle is safer staying with him than with surfie freaks in Byron Bay (that is where Elle told her mum she was saying) but Gail isn't exactly thrilled, so Paul hangs up on her. Elle tells him that he shouldn't yell at her mum, she is only worried about her. Paul asks what business it is of Gail's since Elle came her of her own accord. Elle admits she only told Gail about Byron Bay so she wouldn't worry.
Alex comes out of the bedroom and Susan wonders why he's left her 10 minutes after saying he wouldn't! He tells her he'll be back once he's got more refreshments for her and sends her back to the bedroom with a kiss. As he is making his way over to the kitchen area, he staggers and eventually falls onto the floor.
ALEX: Oh god. Please don't take me yet.
