Calder Park Racetrack
Elle and Paul finish racing against each other and he has a go at her for driving slow but Elle explains it was her first time. This then leads to a lecture from her father about having the right mental attitude to compete in business and if she needed extra incentive, tells her to visualise Dylan and Carmella playing tonsil hockey before they set off again with Elle ordered to win!
Dylan just about spills is coffee on Carmella when they run into each other in the bar. They chat about what happened at the retreat and both admit to feeling guilty despite them not remembering what happened. Rosie drops by and has a go at her sister for meeting Dylan while Oliver waits at home crying his eyes out. Give Carmella her due though, she has a go back at her sister about pashing Paul before his wedding to Lyn at which point Dylan decides he's heard enough and leaves them to their squabbling.
Dylan is not impressed when Sky tells him she wants to use a homeopath instead of giving Kerry her vaccines. Stinger tries to say it is just a consultation atm but this still isn't winning Dylan over and he is not at all impressed when his brother lets slip the royal “we”.
DYLAN: We? This is a decision for the parents of the child to decide.
STINGER: I know. I'm just supporting Sky.
DYLAN: Fine, so just leave the parenting to us.
Calder Park Racetrack
Paul and Elle finish their race and this time Elle has beaten her dad, which pleases him. Elle seems happy at winning too and shockingly rejects Paul's offer of a spending spree in favour of torching the Timmins family! “That's my girl,” replies Paul before they head off.
Stinger tries to talk to Dylan about why Sky is freaked out about immunising Kerry (an article she read freaked her out) and suggests letting Sky huff and puff for a few days in the hope she comes round. Dylan doesn't say anything to that, so Stinger wonders if it is because of Elle that Dylan is behaving like this, it isn't and finally Dylan reveals what is annoying him – his brother acting like he is Kerry's dad and reminds him that he is her father. Stinger apologises and Dylan explains that he just needs to find a way to deal with it.
Paul and Elle take the chance to bitch about the Timmins family and their debt while they are pampered by a couple of beauticians and Elle wonders what would happen if their money source was removed. They decide to concoct a story with the aid of some creative accounting that Lassiter's is losing money and so will be forced to sell their Lassiter's shares to them given they have no other sources of income, unlike them.
No. 30 backyard
Elle thanks Oliver for inviting her over and tries to stir things up about their partners cheating on them but he is quite calm about it all given Carmella isn't his partner, which doesn't stop Elle from bitching about her. Oliver doesn't bite though and suggests that forgiveness is what makes a relationship strong, “or makes you turn into a doormat,” replies Elle. Elle is surprised to hear Oliver admit that his mum had an affair before he was born but his parents worked through it and it made their relationship stronger.
Realising that her plan isn't working, Elle resorts to her best feature and turns whiney, but all it gets is Oliver telling her to work it out with Dylan. Elle tries Plan B – lying, and suggests that Carmella is a gold-digger but Oliver must have the patience of a saint or a very thick skin as even this doesn't get to him and he resumes his place on the sunlounger. The lassie is really struggling now but Oliver gives her a break when he agrees to let her cook dinner for him tonight.
Frazer and Rosie have been observing the two of them from the balcony.
FRAZER: One moment of weakness. Look at all the pain it's caused.
ROSIE: That's what happens when people give into passion without thinking about anybody else.
FRAZER: Carmella and Dylan stuffed up. Doesn't mean passion is a bad thing.
ROSIE: In my experience, it only leads to trouble.
FRAZER: In my experience it can also bring people closer together.
(Rosie shakes her head)
FRAZER: It means losing control a bit. I can see why it wouldn't interest you.
He decides to leave and go make lunch.
Elle turns on the charm with Carmella, saying she has been really worried about her over the guilt she must be feeling and having to move back home. Carmella is “riiiggghhhttt” because she thinks that Elle wants to slap her but Elle explains that she doesn't want to lose her best friend as well as her boyfriend. Carmella is having trouble accepting this but Elle twists it so that the two of them are victims and it is all Dylan's fault. She further twists the knife in when Carmella wants to apologise to Oliver for her actions but dissuades her by saying that if she apologies, that gives Oliver carte blanche to do whatever he wants.
CARMELLA: No, he's not that type of guy.
ELLE: Every guy is that type of guy. You turn your back for half a second and bang, he's off with some other girl getting even.
Carmella looks really worried as we cut from them to Stinger and Sky at another table. She gets off the phone to say that the appointment with the homeopath is 3pm today and asks if he can go with her. Bearing in mind his conversation with Dylan earlier, he tries his best to get out of going with her and suggests she takes Dylan. The penny drops and Sky asks if Dylan has said something, which he admits but puts over Dyl's prospective, which Sky turns around and asks him if that is how their relationship will be when Dylan has a tantie. Stinger is looking mightily uncomfortable and Sky reminds him that Kerry and she come as a package and forces him into making a decision.
We don't hear what that decision is as we cut back to Carmella who watches Oliver come into the bar and ignore her, heading to the counter instead. Both have faces on them the like spending a wet weekend in Blackpool and Carmella leaves after they both stare at each other wondering who is going to make the first move.
Dylan is checking out with Rosie his legal rights over Kerry as regards to getting a say in her future when it comes to having vaccinations, picking schools etc and Rosie suggests that they hold a mediation session to resolve the problems. This isn't quite what Dylan was after and while Rosie goes to get a leaflet for him, he suggests to her that he isn't getting proper legal advice because she thinks he's a scumbag. She vehemently denies this but Dylan isn't convinced and will wait to talk to Toadie when he gets back from Sydney but still takes the leaflet from her.
Dylan exits and sees Frazer waiting and tells him that she is all his and he heads into the office after deciding to leave a big bouquet of flowers behind in the waiting room. He literally takes two steps into the room Rosie quickly apologises before kissing him but he breaks it off because he has something important to tell her. Rosie has had enough of talking though and closes the office door!!!
Paul comes off the phone to tell Elle that the “creative accounting” plan is a go and that they should see results at the end of the month. Elle answers the door surprised to see Dylan on the doorstep wanting to apologise. Paul has a right go at him but Elle stops him, wanting to handle it herself.
Dylan tells her that he knows he's blown it and isn't round to win her back but just to explain why because he loves her and what happened didn't make any sense. He apologises for getting drunk, after seeing Sky and Stinger play mummy and daddy to Kerry, adding that he doesn't even like Carmella and it would never have happened if he wasn't messed up. Dylan proclaims his love for her and nobody else but before Elle can reply, Paul interrupts to remind her about a conference call that is overdue. Getting her mind back on the job albeit she is teary, she closes the door on Dylan telling him to go.
PAUL: Oh for gods sakes, a few syrupy words from Samson there and you're prepared to throw away everything that we've achieved today.
ELLE: I can't just turn off my feelings for him.
PAUL: YES you can.
PAUL: By taking all that humiliation and hurt that is inside of you and turning it into the desire to get revenge. Mmm.
Rosie and Frazer are getting extremely up close and personal but just as clothes are about to be shed, Frazer stops and tells her that she shouldn't trust him. Rosie looks rather disappointed he's stopped things but he doesn't want to go through with it until she knows what type of person he is.
FRAZER: My name's not Frazer Yeats.
ROSIE: I know.
FRAZER: It's George Brown, older brother of Ringo and Pauline, younger brother of…Johnny.
ROSIE: (the penny dropping) Johnny Brown?
I think Rosie has just realised what is going on.
Dylan is relieved to hear that Sky will be getting Kerry vaccinated following a disappointing consultation with the homeopath when she calls round and he jokes that it saves him having to take out a court order! Sky playfully hits him then invites him to the appointment she has booked Kerry into for Wednesday, denying that Stinger had anything to do with suddenly involving him. Dylan gratefully accepts the invitation and also the one to go shopping with them to get new clothes for bubs. He almost changes his mind although when he realises his brother will be there too until Sky tells him to get used to having her partner, albeit Scott or someone else, involved with Kerry.
Rosie is pacing up and down the office as Frazer (or should that be George now?) explains that he told her the truth before but she was asleep and wanted her to know because he couldn't stand himself a second longer. She thinks he needs her forgiveness for absolution but Frazer explains that he wanted to tell her because he loves her.
ROSIE: A moment ago I was actually thinking about spending the rest of my life with you.
FRAZER: You still can.
ROSIE: You perused me behind your brothers back and the only thing you wanted was my family connection.
FRAZER: At first. Rosie I'm not that person any more.
ROSIE: How many pseudonyms do you have by the way?
FRAZER: I had to tell you Rosie. Please believe me; I did it because I love you.
ROSIE: (half laughing) Get out.
Frazer does as he's told and Rosie sits down at her desk taking a few deep breaths, obviously shocked at the news.
Elle spots Frazer coming into the bar and comments to Oliver that he (Frazer) is a “bad mood bear” and Oliver adds in that things have been tense between Rosie and Frazer since the trip away. Paul comes over to say that he's going to delay his journey home to go via the law firm to check on Rosie but Elle wants to know if he will be home or not and decides for them to start without him, cheekily taking the bottle of wine he bought for dinner with him!
Oliver questions Elle as to why Paul is buying wine from the pub given the wine stock at Lassiter's and Elle explains that it is to give Steph the business.
OLIVER: Your dad's not the jerk that people make him out to be.
ELLE: I'll take that as a compliment.
Just as they are about to head off, Carmella comes over wanting to talk…alone and before he goes, Elle urges him to be strong and to remember what they talked about – she's only after one thing.
Paul enters and picks up the flowers Frazer had brought but changed his mind over, and knocks before entering the office, where he spots Rosie trying to cover up that she has been crying. “This wouldn't have anything to do with Ringo wouldn't it?” Rosie asks if everyone bar her knew and Paul plays the knight in shining armour by saying he knew Frazer was hiding things and tried to find out to warn her but she is doubtful if she'd have listened.
Paul formally enters her office and presents her with the flowers and wine to cheer her up. “I feel like such an idiot” admits Rosie but he says she isn't, just too trusting. She admits that it really hurts and Paul tells her to start from the beginning while he pours the wine.
