Izzy issuing a ‘hands off Paul' warning to Lyn.
Boyd telling Max he doesn't mind Janae being out all night as part of the ‘lets wind Max up' campaign.
Lyn telling Steph and Max about Katya being kidnapped by CamRob.
Katya showing CamRob the article about Paul and Gail getting married and he saying that would be a big mistake.
CamRob parks up the motorhome for the night and next morning we see him and Katya in the bed with Katya's arms and legs still bound by rope. She plays it very cool with him and he tells her that there are a lot of things to do today including getting rid of Paul! Katya asks what happens next and he informs her that they've got the rest of their lives to decide that. He starts to seductively kiss her and she looks like she is cringing like hell at what he is doing to her.
Gail jumps as Paul comes in and jokes that a bride is allowed to be nervous on her wedding day. She wants him to stop the pretending that the wedding is real, which he agrees with.
PAUL: It's a fairytale…fairytale about Paul and Gail. First time round marriage of convenience, second time they found love.
GAIL: Just a shame we lost it hey?
PAUL: Yes. And the third time…here they are again. Maybe this time they might last the distance?!
Gail asks where Izzy fits into the equation?
PAUL: Maybe not everyone gets to live happy ever after eh?
GAIL: Just as long as you do hey?
Gail asks if he is prepared to lose Izzy and reminds him that as soon as CamRob is found she is on the first plane home.
PAUL: No-one knows what the future holds Gail.
Boyd and Janae enter the bar and Max asks how they spend the night in the hotel and Boyd replies that it was a backpackers which they shared with 6 lager louts from Leeds! Boyd then subtly says that Janae was extremely late home…because she was studying in the library. Max asks for a quiet word but Boyd asks him to say whatever he is going to say in front of Janae. Steph warns Max but he asks Boyd to stop looking through rose coloured spectacles as far as his wife is concerned.
Finally, Janae admits who she really was seeing – a real estate agent showing her a property and isn't having an affair. Max doesn't quite believe that from the angle he was standing at and Janae concedes that point before asking if he has any idea how hard it is to find somewhere to rent, especially at their age. When Max mentions going into the house twice, Janae admits that the whole thing was just to wind him up. Boyd leaves after telling his father that fun obviously isn't allowed anymore.
MAX: What was the point in that?
JANAE: I don't know. Maybe you should *talk* to him!
STEPH: Wouldn't want the facts getting in the way of a *good story* now would we?
JANAE: I'm sorry guys. First it was fun but all seemed rather pointless in the end. I guess the only way I can make it up to you is to get my stupid husband to apologise so we can be normal again.
CamRob tells Katya that he can't be a good, respected man while his father is alive. She asks if what he plans to do will fit into that and he assures her that they can both put their scarred past behind them and look to the future. Thinking that she is missing her family, he says the he misses his too and that they did have some happy times and that saying goodbye is hard to do.
Katya changes subject to talk about digging up the gnome from the front garden of No. 22 and tells him that Toadie's face was a picture and wishes that he should have seen it. He coolly asks what makes her think that he wasn't there.
KATYA: I don't. In think there is a lot that you know that you are not letting on.
CAMROB: Like what?
KATYA: Like where Connor really is.
He angrily tells her to stop and that she is lying to him and accuses her of being with Toadie because he's seen the look on her face when she is with him because they are both broken people and only the pair of them can repair the damage.
CAMROB: I've saved you and you've saved me.
Paul is making sure that his standard drink, champagne, is in plentiful supply when Izzy comes in and remarks that for a fake wedding he is certainly going overboard. He explains that CamRob isn't going to be convinced if it doesn't look real. Izzy has a go at Paul when he nonchalantly thanks her for collecting Gail's wedding dress.
IZZY: I've done some pretty sick things in my time but this is up there!
Paul asks in reply if she is working out her compensation and is told that 5-star is featuring heavily in it! He assures her that the only reason he is going through with it is because it is a great plan to get CamRob out of hiding…and reminds Izzy that it was her idea! She starts to sulk and Paul reminds her that there is the only one that he loves and it will just be the two of them once CamRob is caught. Lyn arrives with a bunch of flowers interrupting the pash that is about to take place.
LYN: I don't know, flowers and weddings doesn't it just make you
IZZY: Want to spew? Join the queue for a bucket.
CamRob is travelling towards Erinsborough with Katya firmly tied up in the back. She unties the handkerchief from her neck and quietly and carefully hangs it out one of the side windows.
They now stop at a service station and he lets her use the washroom facilities untied before escorting her back into the van. Katya tries to deviate into the shop and he stops her, so she lays it on thick that he has to trust her.
During the commercial break, he obviously decided that he can trust her but watches her every move from the outside. Katya rings for service and the attendant eventually enters the shop from the back office. She tries to tell him that she needs help but the attendant hasn't got a clue what she is on about just as CamRob enters the shop. Katya is then forced to change the help that she was wanting, to asking for Soya milk. The attendant isn't exactly enthralled at her shopping list so CamRob sends her back towards the van and tells the guy “women eh?!”
Izzy helps Gail into her wedding dress and Gail thanks her. The two of them aren't exactly happy at being near one of other and few polite insults are traded with each other. Paul arrives home and tells Gail that she looks stunning and Izzy reminds him that it is bad luck to see the bride on the wedding day and tells him to get out but he heads up the stairs instead.
IZZY: Oh well, too late now.
CamRob obviously relented with Katya's shopping list and tries to get the attendant to hurry up with the bill asking Katya if they really need all the food. Katya points out that he is responsible for driving and she is responsible for the food. CamRob isn't happy when the attendant adds on the petrol cost before rolling Katya's credit card in an olde fashioned credit card machine – no chip and pin in Australia then! Katya signs her name and hands over the chit to the guy before CamRob hurries her out of the shop but judging by the look on her face, she has written more then just her signature on the chit.
Janae enlists an unwilling Boyd's help into helping with the dresses for the wedding because they have nowhere else to go – they can't go home, he doesn't want to see his dad and she doesn't want to go back to the backpackers with the drunks from Leeds. Boyd asks her to stop patronising him by bossing him around but turns out that he is just peeved off at her for telling Max the truth about the stupid joke. Janae points out that it wasn't going to make Max treat them like adults acting immature like that, and gets Boyd to promise to go talk to his dad.
Boyd hears a noise coming from the back door and Janae hides behind her husband as someone makes their way into the house, which is news to them as Lyn said nobody would be back until tonight. Turns out that the surprise guests are Max, Steph and Charlie who is once again back in a babygro but at least this one isn't white!!!
Both are a bit surprise to see the other and Steph explains that she is just finishing off the jobs that Lyn asked her to do. Steph hands Charlie over to Janae as they head into the livingroom and she coos with him before asking Steph if she can smell something burning…and they subtly head through to the kitchen to leave father and son alone.
After a tense few seconds, Max apologises to Boyd for jumping to conclusions and for generally not being behind him of late. Boyd begrudgingly says “thanks” and Max says that one day he will be a dad too. Boyd finishes Max's sentence for him by saying that he hopes that he knows when it is time to let go and asks Max to let him make the decisions in his life be they good ones or bad or that they'd be better off keeping their distance from each other.
CamRob enters the van asking Katya how much money he owes her since the attendant lumped everything together but she replies that it is on her. CamRob wants to see the receipt but she is reluctant to do so, again saying that she'll pay but he *insists* that he wants to see the receipt. Katya gets her purse and starts looking for it but is having trouble finding it, so CamRob grabs the purse from her and starts to look through it. Eventually he finds it and I was right, she has written something on it – HELP!
CAMROB: (shaking his head) Oh Katya.
During the commercial break he has tied Katya up before starting up the motorhome and driving off. Katya doesn't look to be too happy being tied up again in the back of the van.
Lyn is finishing off setting up the room and issues instructions to the Lassiter's staff as Gail and Izzy arrive. Gail offers to help and is asked to take some flowers outside while Lyn dumps some twill into Izzy's arms and is told to put it up.
Paul adds to the bad luck by walking under a ladder as he too arrives, to ask Lyn which tie looks better. Lyn isn't happy to have him near her, citing that there is a lot of work still to be done and the fact he doesn't seem to be worried at all.
PAUL: Actually I am a little worried. Well I mean faking a wedding is one thing but how do you fake a honeymoon!? Do you think she'll notice?
LYN: Your life is at stake.
PAUL: Oh yes…what's new?!
LYN: Oh I get it. So you have this remarkable ability to just keep bouncing back. Cliffs, planes, mine shafts. Maybe you are immortal but what about the rest of us Paul? Are we all un-killable?
And to that part, all Paul cares about is how he looks!
Max tells the punters to drink up as they are closing for a private function. Max spots the real estate agent Janae was talking to and tells Steph that this is a good moment for him to get back in Boyd's good books by getting them the house. Steph is naturally worried and asks what he is planning and Max replies just talking to him as Steph desperately hangs onto him, to prevent him from doing that.
Max breaks free from her grasp and as he is shooing the punters out, asks the guy if he works in real estate. The guy confirms that and Max mentions about Boyd & Janae putting an offer in for one of his places and wants to put in a word for them. The guy is a bit puzzled at Max doing that as they had excellent references and seemed very nice and therefore are front runners to get the place.
MAX: Yes they are good kids, you won't be disappointed and I'll tell you what I'll be their guarantor okay. Boyd's got a lot ahead of him – first year medicine.
THE GUY: Yes, I seem to remember that.
MAX: Yeah, they'll probably be looking to buy a place fairly soon and Janae might only be sixteen but she's got a good head on her that one.
The guy was on his way out but at hearing the word ‘sixteen', stops and turns back puzzled because Janae said she was in her twenties! Max then quickly tries to say that is what he said, but the guy can't get out the door quick enough as Max continues to say they are good kids and won't let him down.
Now is time to quote one of Oscar's favourite words – Uh-oh!
Lyn tells that Gail looks really beautiful as Izzy creeps up on them and tells Lyn that she would look like a thousand dollars too walking down the aisle with Joe Mangel waiting at the end in his beer stained t-shirt. Lyn doesn't appreciate the joke as Izzy continues to wind her up before adding that it wouldn't be Joe Mangel that she'd want waiting at the end of the aisle for her. Lyn doesn't rise to Izzy's bait, instead telling Izzy that it doesn't look like Paul and Gail are about to go through a fake wedding, it looks real.
IZZY: She's got her claws out now.
LYN: Must be so humiliating for you Isabel…seeing them so close right under your nose.
IZZY: Not as humiliating as fantasising about someone who is way, way out of your league.
LYN: It's funny you know, how all your boyfriends end up gravitating back to their ex's. You should see a psychiatrist.
Izzy tells Lyn that she isn't going to cut it and neither is that frump! Interrupting their little tit-for-tat snide remarks, Paul answers his mobile phone and confirms with telephone chipmunk Steiger that everything is set. He hangs up and asks Gail if she is ready and everyone just about jumps out of their skin when something smashes but turns out it was only a lightbulb blowing.
PAUL: (to a scared Gail) I'm not going to let anyone hurt you today okay. I promise.
Paul shouts for someone to check the electrics out and Izzy feigns that she has some glass in her eye and as Paul rushes over to see to her, Lyn moves over to Gail and while looking at Izzy, wishes Gail good luck…because she is going to need it to get through it. Gail replies that CamRob isn't after her and Lyn says it wasn't CamRob she was thinking of as the camera pans to Paul looking for the non-existent glass in Izzy's eye.
While Boyd takes a call on his mobile, Janae tells Steph that she saw the baby belt photos and that she loved them. She also adds that Steph looked really beautiful in them and didn't see why Steph was so worried. Steph is loving these comments and thanks Janae for her words and explains that she sees herself different after having a baby. Janae adds that she wishes she looks as good as Steph when she has a baby.
Boyd comes off the phone and tells Janae that the real estate agent has just called and tells her that they are not moving into the house because the owner doesn't want to risk letting the house to a sixteen year old! Janae is puzzled and asks how the guy found out and Boyd replies “Dad.” They both look at Steph and she confirms that Max said it but not in the context they think.
