Loris and Harold agreeing they'll be seeing more of each other in the future.
Susan telling Sky that the truth will tear her and Dylan apart in the future.
Susan promising to keep Sky's secret but reminds her that it's wrong.
Harold suggesting to Dylan that he ask Sky to marry him.
Sky tells Dylan that he was so great in the way he supported Bree about the whole sister and adoption thing, and Dylan replies that he will always love Bree as his sister. Harry returns home from somewhere that required a tracksuit, and unsubtly enquires as to how his suggestion to Dylan earlier has worked out.
Dylan replies that he will be taking Sky out tomorrow is she free? She is now, and Dylan scarpers, leaving Sky looking rather confused.
Rachel and Katya have prepared breakfast, and Susan is delighted. Zeke returns home from somewhere in a mood, and Susan tells him to get his act together now he is to join them at the table and stop acting like that kid from the Snoopy strip the one who always wanders around with a black cloud over his head. Well, she doesn't reference Snoopy, but she should because he's cool.
Susie tells the kids that Karl is returning soon, and Rachel thinks of ways to make Audrey be more friendly to Karl. Katya offers Zeke a croissant, but he ignores her, and admits why pictures of Katya posing in a magazine are all over the football training ground. Katya looks gutted.
Janae, Boyd, Toadie, Dylan and Scott are in the kitchen and make a rather nice group of mates!
They talk about the Anne situation Janae doesn't want to be in the same gene pool as her. Excellent. Toadie tries to lighten the mood and fails parlously. Scott thinks they should make her welcome to the family, but the conversation soon changes when Dylan can't hold in the news anymore that he's asking Sky to marry him.
Janae suggests that Sky's a modern chick, and might not be into marriage. Scott gets out the beers to celebrate Sky, Dylan and the baby.
Rachel is furious that Zeke has upset Katya, but Katya appears to talk to the children about what she did. Susan goes to her bedroom to leave them to chat it through.
Katya tells them that she's always been afraid of having to tell them this, but she knew she'd had to one day. She says she had no choice in posing.
Janae suddenly realises that Dylan has no ring, but he does and he presents it to his sister. It's a ring which is identical to the one from The Funeral Bride, which apparently Sky loves.
JANAE: That's a ring?
Material girl isn't impressed. Scotty calls best man, and Boyd calls second best, which kinda leaves Toadie out of the loop. This *is* a nice group of friends. I could live with this, if they all lived here at number 30 in the endless supply of bedrooms.
Janae wanders out the kitchen, and Boyd follows her. She's upset because everyone's so delighted for Sky and Dylan, but no-one cared about theirs. Boyd tells her that once they settle into their new place, they will have the best wedding ever, and she's thrilled.
Scott pushes his way past them, drunk.
Back in the kitchen, Toadie asks where Dylan will ask Sky to marry him. He has the perfect spot! She loves irony and cars, so, something to do with Ironic Cars
Katya admits she was an addict. To what, we might never know, so let's assume she's a Neighbours fan. The photos paid for her habit. Rats they say her drug habit, and yet I had this whole thing going about how many Karl/Susan DVDs she could make with money from a centrefold shoot.
Zeke is still angry why didn't she stop? She has a brain doesn't she?! (It's debatable.) Rachel asked how many times she posed, and Katya admits just the once, and their father never knew. But she tells them that those photos saved her life. When he saw them, she realised how bad her life was, and how bad it could get. So she went to rehab.
She also reminds them she had no family to support her back then. And she needs them now to help her. Rachel admires her sister for turning her life around it makes her a winner! Zeke also thinks their dad would have been proud of her.
So, that's a lengthy storyline running for months that was wrapped up in a 5 minute conversation. Excellent.
Dylan knows how he's going to propose, but Janae has other ideas, and Scotty and Dylan settle on the sofa to hear her interesting thoughts on the matter. She tells her brother that Sky will still want a gooey proposal. So she role plays it with Scott. He will be Sky, and she'll be Dylan.
She kneels down on the floor. And so it starts up my most FAVOURITE underscore from Neighbours EVER. You know, the one from the late 80s that all admittances to being in love were acted to. The one that everyone who was a fan learnt to play on the piano or, at least, their recorder that they learnt to play at primary school. Is it the one they used when Paul told Gail he loved her in 637? ETA - no, I just checked. Damn.
Anyway, after being easily sidetracked by the fabulous music, DylanJanae makes a mushy speech which makes Stingray feel sick, and she goes onto say how wonderful the wedding will be unlike hers and Boyd's because no-one cared! Scotty does his version of the proposal which is terrible, but Janae makes the point that Dylan's speech has to be genuine.
But he doesn't want to write a speech. He's going to keep it simple.
Katya tells Susan that she underestimated the kids, but Susie isn't surprised the kids love their big sister. Katya wants to know what she thinks of the pictures and she says everyone's done things when they're desperate for money that they wish they hadn't. She also thinks that Alex's parenting has helped made the kids so mature, and Katya credits Susan with that, too.
Zeke comes in and announces that Anne and Bree are both ignoring him and not returning his calls. He's off to tell the footie guys he's leaving the side, especially after their attitude to Katya. But Katya suggested he turn the situation round tell his mates that his older sister's hot friends come round for pyjama parties all the time that will make him really popular! Susan's not sure, and of course Zeke won't do that
Katya tells Susan she feels incredible, having her brother and sister's understanding.
Sky comes round and talks to Stingray, concerned about his drinking. She has to go, but as she does, Rachel comes over. She needs to talk about Katya to someone. But Scotty isn't really listening or paying much attention, and he's all hyper, and Rachel says she has to go and help Susan with some chores. Disappointed and despairing at his drinking, she leaves.
Luna Park, St Kilda
I love St Kilda. But that's irrelevant.
Dylan has brought Sky to the dodgems, and is pretending that he's an idiot bringing her here, because of course she can't go on the cars whilst she's pregnant. But hey, that's okay because
He produces a ring, and she loves it. It's like the one from The Funeral Bride (I think that was the point, Sky.) She thinks it's a cute pressie. But Dyl tells her it's more than a pressie. He gets on his knees will she marry him? She looks gobsmacked and taken aback. She says she loves him, and Dylan takes that to be a yes, then suddenly remembers to check it is a yes, isn't? Not really knowing what to say or do, she nods, spaced out and confused. He kisses her, hugs her, and flies around shaking the hand of every stranger there. Sky looks distraught.
Janae and Boyd are looking for some study notes and run into Doctor Herbert. They see a picture of Katya as a centrefold on the noticeboard, and Katya appears. Boyd quickly takes it down, but Katya puts it back up after all, if you've got it, flaunt it.
Zeke is trying to make Audrey love Karl by getting her to sniff something of his, and looking at a photo. Rachel runs in she needs her brother's help with Stingray.
An emergency is brought in, and Katya calls to Dr Herbert to come and help. Boyd watches on. Dr Herbert says she can't help right now, and it's obvious she can't see straight. In a manner of a comedy sketch show, Katya declares this woman is dying. DYING! DYING, I say. (The woman in question doesn't even have an oxygen mask on.) Katya starts prescribing drugs which I didn't think nurses could do, so Katya asks for Boyd's help.
Dr Herbert declares she's okay, now, but Katya refuses to let her assist.
The Scarlet Bar
Susan and Harold are talking about Dylan's proposal to Sky. Susan is clearly looking doubtful, but tries not to say anything. Harold thinks she may be projecting her doubts because of her reunion with Karl (what?!) but Susan denies it. She says she wishes nothing but happiness for them.
Zeke comes in and asks Scott to come and help Rachel's in trouble and Susan can't know. Scott leaves to assist Zeke.
Dr Herbert is defending herself against Katya in front of the HeadDoctorMan. HeadDoctor as in ChiefInCharge, not as in the body part. So.
Dr Herbert refuses to take a blood test for drugs there is no need to. Katya expresses sympathy, she knows what Dr Herbert is going through, and now she's endangered the life of a patient, she has to do something. Herby breaks down and admits to it all! All of it! Stealing drugs! Taking them! Falsely accusing Janae Hoyland! All of it, over and done with in the space of five seconds! Well, aren't we rushing the storylines tonight?
The Scarlet Bar
Janae can't believe she's in the clear, and is so grateful to Katya for what she did. So is Boyd and they agree not to argue over the whole Max thing anymore and kiss and make up.
Dylan and Sky return and it's a yes! They're getting married. Harry is delighted, and in front of Susan, Sky declares how she loves Dyl more than anything, and she's not going to let anything get in the way of that. Susan congratulates Sky and gives her a hug, but the look on her face says she knows it will all end in tears.
Rachel is on the roof of the house supposedly drunk, and Zeke and Stingray run up the street. Scotty starts to climb the ladder to help, and a worried Rachel and Zeke look on as Rachel realises that he's not at all steady. The ladder falls from under Scott, and he clings to the roof as Rachel tells him to hang on.
And in the background, a crew member subtly moves the ladder out of harm's way.
