Janae asks Boyd if he loves Glenn and Boyd can't answer
Lolly reads up about brakes and sabotages what she thinks is Sandy's car
Rachel can't believe Ringo let Lolly confront Sandy alone
Lolly tells Sandy she's going to tell everyone about the abuse; Sandy tries to hit her but Lolly moves aside and Sandy ends up falling into the pool. She doesn't move as Lolly looks on.
Number 24, poolside
Lolly is staring at a motionless Sandy when Ringo and Rachel see what's going on and rush to pull Sandy out of the water. Ringo and Rachel panic as they realise Sandy isn't breathing and Lolly has to be prompted to tell them how long she's been in the water. Ringo reaches for his mobile to call an ambulance but, unknown to him, it fell into the pool in the process of him rescuing Sandy. While he panics Lolly approaches Sandy and, realising her heart is still beating, administers CPR, bringing her round just as Lou arrives. As Sandy comes to she stares at Lolly, who stares back.
Elle plans her evening activities but Glenn is more worried about having to go into the garage - Janae makes her feel like she's a murderer. Elle convinces her that Janae's problems are with Boyd and not Glenn, then sends her inside. Glenn isn't happy that Elle won't accompany her.
Glenn asks Janae about her car and Janae tersely tells her it's ready as promised. She details the problems with it and continues being business like, all the while refusing to meet Glenn's eye. When Janae tells her she can go now Glenn angrily tells her to drop the attitude; she loves Boyd and knows Boyd loves her too. Janae replies by asking how she's going to be paying, refusing to talk about Boyd. Glenn tells her to keep the change but Janae gives her a twenty back.
JANAE: Drive safely.
Glenn leaves, shaking her head.
Glenn wishes she hadn't come to Erinsborough…and that she'd never met Boyd and his ‘stupid' wife. Elle notices someone walking down a footpath – who should it be but Boyd! Elle suggests Glenn offer him a lift but Glenn thinks it'll look like she's trying to force things. She wants Boyd to choose her and he has to make that decision himself. It's important for her to be a good person who acts with integrity. Elle thinks it's those qualities that are paralysing Boyd – he won't leave his wife unless Glenn makes it happen. Glenn still doesn't want to hear it but won't deny it's what she wants so Elle runs off so Glenn can casually offer Boyd a lift. Boyd tells her he'd love one.
The paramedics want to take Sandy to the hospital but she doesn't think she needs to go. Lou encourages her to go and Sandy agrees but warns them not to listen to any of Lolly's ‘fancy stories' about what happened. Lou thinks Sandy's lucky Lolly was there to help but Sandy accuses Lolly of pushing her in. Lou asks Lolly if she did it but Lolly doesn't answer and Sandy takes this as an indication of guilt.
The paramedic takes Sandy away and Lou asks Lolly what got into her – the Lolly he knows wouldn't have done that. Lolly apologises and Lou doesn't know what to say; she's had it tough but why push Sandy in the pool? Lolly says it was a reflex; she's done it before and she wouldn't let it happen again! Lou is confused and Lolly looks to Ringo before speaking.
LOLLY: She hits me and she's been doing it for years.
Boyd is telling Glenn about a guy who had to perform surgery naked from the waist down thanks to his scrubs falling down. Glenn thinks he's pulling her leg. They smile at each other then Boyd thinks they should get going. He volunteers to drive as he knows the way there.
As they drive Boyd asks Glenn if she'd pull his pants up for him and says yes, but only once she'd pulled up a chair and had a laugh like everyone else! Boyd comes to a stop sign but can't slow down – it's the car! They drive onto gravel and Boyd desperately tries to regain control. Glenn hits her head on the doorframe as they skid to a stop in a cloud of dust.
After commercials Boyd realises Glenn is unconscious. He tells her to wake up and she regains consciousness, saying his name. He calls for an ambulance, asking her to be alright.
Lou thanks Rachel and Ringo for their help with Sandy. Lolly thanks Ringo for his support – she couldn't have told Lou without his help.
Once they've gone Lou tells Lolly how sorry he is and asks why she didn't tell him. Sandy had told her no one would believe her but Lou assures her she could tell him anything and he'd believe her – he trusts her. Lolly tells him what really happened – she stood up to her and it was all an accident. Lou understands it was self-defence. Lolly is worried what might've happened hadn't Ringo and Rachel appeared – would she have let her die? Lou hugs her as she cries; Sandy always treated her differently from her other kids, saying she had an evil side. What if she was right? Lou tells her she's a wonderful young lady, with a big heart, and no one deserves what she's been through. He assures her she's safe now.
Rachel is still hyper about the rescue and is amazed at how calm Ringo was. Ringo wants a drink and Rachel manages to find Susan's secret stash of soft drink. Ringo seems uncomfortable as Rachel continues to talk about Sandy being unconscious and he denies doing anything – it was lucky that Lolly knew mouth-to-mouth. Rachel says he doesn't know how to take a compliment; he's a tough person to figure out. She moves closer to him and he pulls back when it's obvious she's going to kiss him. He rushes out, saying he'll see her later.
Ringo goes inside, calling for the others, but it's clear he's walked into an empty house. He sits down on the sofa and starts to cry.
Elle spies on Janae as she checks her mobile. Janae catches Elle looking and asks why she's staring at her. Elle says she was looking at her nachos, telling her she admires her not worrying about putting on weight. Janae retorts that she doesn't have to worry as she exercises instead of lounging around all day, being pampered. Janae asks who she's meeting and then accuses her of setting it all up. Boyd is running late and now Glenn is – coincidence?
ELLE: And you think they're together.
JANAE: And you're probably here to celebrate.
ELLE (mock outraged): How can you say that?!
JANAE: Save it.
Elle says she and Janae were so close once upon a time and it hurts her that she and Boyd are drifting apart. Janae denies this and Elle's assertion that Glenn and Boyd have an amazing connection. Elle thinks they can fight it but it'll win out in the end. Janae retorts that her love with Boyd will win out. Elle was the same at her age, falling in and out of love all the time, but she never lost her dignity. She always knew when it was over. Janae starts to refute this but then laughs, saying she nearly fell for it; this is all a secret Paul and Elle plan to damage the Timmins. Elle thinks she's paranoid and denies that she and Paul spend a second of their time thinking about the Timmins.
Elle and Janae's phones start to ring simultaneously, and they both answer demanding to know where Glenn/Boyd have been. They look shocked and turn to look at each other.
Rachel finds Ringo watching a Doris Day movie but she wants to talk and be serious. She tells him about Zeke stopping talking after Alex died - getting such a shock can get to people. Ringo denies being affected even though Rachel says it's okay to be emotional. Ringo tells her she doesn't know everything and he doesn't want to talk to her about it.
Rachel hands him his phone which she found and dried with a hairdryer. Ringo just concentrates on the phone and Rachel, fed up with his lack of response, walks out without Ringo noticing. He tells her it was a really nice thing to do only to hear the slam of the door as she walks out.
Glenn feels spoilt having Boyd as her personal medic. Boyd strokes her cheek and holds her hand, admitting he's worried about her. Glenn reminds him he's saved her life twice now. They have a moment which is interrupted by Elle storming in. Glenn tells her that the police think someone tampered with the brakes. Boyd adds that looks likely it was deliberate.
Janae hurries in and, once realising Boyd is fine, asks him to talk to her outside.
Sandy arrives back, saying she got a taxi back to avoid being any trouble. She notices the cold atmosphere and then her packed suitcase at the door. She knew leaving them together would turn out like this; Lolly makes everything look bad.
LOU: Is that why you hit her?
Sandy says it's another of Lolly's lies. In fact the bruises were probably self-inflicted! Lou reminds her Lolly saved her life. Sandy retorts she tried to kill her. Lolly holds up her diary which she wrote in everytime Sandy hurt her. Sandy tells Lou it's all lies, that she'd never treat anyone like that. Lou has read it. Sandy says it'll all be exaggerated and Lou picks up on the fact she's changing her story. Sandy tries to grab the diary from Lolly and Lou jumps in between them, telling Sandy she has no right to call herself a parent. Sandy loves her children more than anything.
LOU: Lolly's your child too.
SANDY: She's not. Every time I look at her I see Cheryl Stark! I see my husband's lies and deceit.
Lou reminds her Lolly isn't responsible for what John did, adding that he called him and the authorities. Sandy is afraid they'll take her children from her and Lou agrees that she has her work cut out for her proving she's a good parent. He tells a sobbing Sandy to get out of his house and Lolly cuddles into him as her step-mother leaves.
Janae demands to know what Boyd was doing with Glenn. Boyd can't believe she's trying to turn it around on him. Janae asks how he'd feel had the situation been reversed. Boyd is more concerned about the fact that Glenn could've been killed, along with the car having been tampered with. Janae thinks it's ridiculous and asks if he thinks she did it.
BOYD: You worked on the car.
Janae can't believe it and Boyd reminds her of how possessive she was when he first started uni. Janae says that's nowhere as extreme as tampering with brakes – all she did was fix the car!
BOYD: Well, you've gotta admit it looks bad.
JANAE: I can't believe this! Do you actually think that I could do that to someone?
Boyd ponders this, saying nothing.
