Steiger telling Pepper the result of the police enquiries and that Kevin could be unstable.
Harold being shocked when the spiritualist mentions that Madge and Stingray are friends.
Pepper receiving an anonymous invitation to a party at the Anson's Corner playground.
Pepper shows the invitation to her dad who isn't amused and is even less so when Pepper announces she is going to the party. He firmly tells her that he will go and she can stay at home but Pepper is stubborn and replies that she is going because she doesn't think Kevin will open up to him. Realising he isn't going to change his daughters mind, he tells her what to wear instead.
Janelle returns home with Stinger's ashes and Bree wants to scatter them as per his wishes unlike Janelle who wants to keep the urn at home. Sky arrives to collect Kerry (Bree's been babysitting) and notices the urn and agrees with Janelle not to scatter the ashes because his soul still alive. Susan and Janelle think that she has gone religious on them but she corrects them by saying she's been talking to Stingray. “How” asks Janelle and Sky starts to tell her about Terrance. Janelle interrupts to point out the obvious that Stingray is gone but Sky asks for them to keep an open mind and offers to give Janelle his contact details.
Lolly is round collecting food for Ringo from Rachel and Zeke but have to stop when Bree and Susan enter. They are forced to hide their tracks when Susan leaves to get more milk (one of the things Lolly has taken) and Bree tells them about Sky seeing a spiritualist. The others can't believe it and they have a mini-debate on whether it is for real or not and Susan shakes her head at the door (she was going to go back and collect whatever it was she couldn't find in her bag).
Harold spots Lou wearing an eye mask as he gingerly makes his way to the sink to get some water. Naturally he is bemused and so Lou explains that due to the time difference between Australia and Russia he couldn't properly “entertain” Mishka when he landed in Moscow so has come up with the idea of adopting Russian time in Erinsborough!
Susan calls round to talk to Harold about the spiritualist, calling him a charlatan and is astonished when Harold objects to her using that word because he is keeping an open mind about the whole thing. While Harold takes Kerry's bottle into Sky, Susan rants off at Lou and discovers he is the one who told Harold to keep an open mind for Sky's sake. Lou quickly adds that he doesn't feel the same adding that Harold got a message from Madge.
The teens pop by Ringo's new home just as he knocks over a billycan of food, frustrated at the camping life. He also moans about the sleeping bag Zeke donated being lumpy, which Lolly confirms, and Rachel gets suspicions because she thinks Lolly stayed over. Lolly quickly reassures her she only kept him company playing poker before going home.
Bree suggests that they go see Sky to get the details of the spiritualist so they can pay a visit but Zeke and Lolly are against the idea but the mood Rachel is in today means she'd say black was white and vice-versa so she and Bree depart to go and visit Sky. After the girls leave, Ringo comments on the mood Rachel appears to be in today.
Anson's Corner playground
A kid's party is in progress but Pepper (who is wired up) lets her dad know there is no sign of Kevin as he observes from the car nearby. Eventually a small kid comes up to her and hands over a parcel to her but Steiger tells her not to open it until he arrives.
Steiger now has the parcel in his hands. He opens it to reveal a box with a note inside – a love note that Pepper once wrote to Kevin when she was a teenager. Steiger gently questions the girl who gave Pepper the present to find out who delivered it (a clown but who has since left) while we hear/see what was in the letter:
Wow, last night was heaven. I hope you meant all you said about getting married one day and having lots of kidlets. Maybe only 10 or 12 to start with. Hey joke!!
I'll love you for the rest of my life, my beautiful Kevin.
Kisses and other stuff
Harold and Lou listen in the kitchen as Sky tells Bree and Rachel about her visits to Terrance to “talk” to Stinger. She informs that that she doesn't hear his voice but the emotions and thoughts coming though Terrance are so like Stinger. Sky then tells them that he doesn't talk about dying but of his family, Bree especially. Bree seems taken by what Sky/Stinger is saying while in the kitchen Lou tells Harold this is what Susan was scared of happening – that the teens aren't mature enough to understand.
Sky comes though to the kitchen to say that the girls are coming with her to see Terrance and Lou's face looks like he's just seen a ghost. Harold picks up on it and tells Sky that isn't suitable for the girls, so she sarcastically asks if it would be okay if they got permission first! He is in an awkward position and can only say yes, so Sky takes the girls away to get permission.
Janelle runs into Susan to invite her for a drink so she can let out steam about Karl but she hasn't got time to go drinking or chat because she is on the way to a job interview – for the position of the School Principal. Janelle reminds her that she didn't like the position of being in charge but Susan explains that they need the money now, especially if Karl keeps disappearing off to the UK, so she was left with no real option but to go for the position.
Both ladies realise they need each other (Janelle to calm a nervous Susan down and Susan to keep Janelle company) so Janelle volunteers to drive Susan to her interview.
Rachel and Bree spot Susan and Janelle but feel they can't ask if it is okay to go, so Sky tells them not to ask. The girls are puzzled and Sky explains the asking part was really for Lou's benefit and tells them that Harold believes in all of it after the things Terrance said about Madge.
Janelle stops the car to say they are off out and Susan asks what they are up to and drive off after Rachel replies “nothing out of the ordinary” but feels bad for lying when the car actually leaves. “It better be worth it,” says Bree and Sky assures them “it will be…and what they don't know won't hurt them!”
Ringo lies to Frazer about being back home and when he hangs up isn't enthralled at the prospect of using the ‘solar shower' that Lolly has set up. He wins a temporary reprieve though when Zeke arrives to say that Harold is coming and two seconds later Harold and Lou arrive and wonder what is going on. Lolly lies and says that she is practicing for camp and ropes Zeke into helping distracting them.
Her plan works and when they follow Zeke, she asks Ringo what she wants him to obtain for supper and isn't thrilled when he says that he has supper organised for Rachel and himself and doesn't need her company because he wants to have a chat to Rachel about their future. She does earn a smile from him though by volunteering to get Rachel to him because he is having trouble getting her on the phone.
Anson's corner playground
Steiger tells his daughter the result of his probing - that the parents thought the clown was arranged by one of the others and that handing over the parcel to her was just part of the game so the mum thought nothing of it.
Pepper thinks that Kevin is trying to woo her all over again but Steiger points out that it is actually classic stalking behaviour and that he could be dangerous, so is taking her down to the station to make a statement because it is now official.
From behind a tree, we see the view of someone watching Pepper get into her dad's car and then the camera pans down to show us the clown costume lying on the ground.
We're back in the same room that Pepper was at for her interview for the incident involving Lolly. Just as the interview is starting, Janelle bursts into the room to make her views as a concerned parent known to the panel!
JANELLE: I have come here to insist that you chose someone with ability, experience and integrity. Oh…Mrs Kinski. (Susan is shooting her daggers at this point!) Oh are you going for the job? Ooh Problem solved. My kids adore Mrs Kinski and we all think she's utterly brilliant (Susan wishes the ground would swallow Janelle up). You need look no further.
Janelle's plan is foiled though when one of the interview panel says that they are friends…because he saw them arrive together. Oops. Janelle is searching for words to dig herself out of the hole but declares that everything she said was true.
PANEL MEMBER: I know it is. We're very much aware of Susan's value at Erinsborough High.
Zeke has allowed Ringo to use the bathroom to shower in but tells him to hurry up because he doesn't want to lose his cleaning job. After getting Lolly to promise that she'll get Rachel to him, he goes off to finish getting cleaned up and Zeke takes the opportunity to tease Lolly that she has the hots for Ringo. She totally denies and reminds Zeke that a boy and girl can be just friends. He doesn't think so, but their chat is abruptly curtailed when they hear someone arrive home.
The teens run out the front door and we then cut to anonymous man cam who is having a right shifty around the livingroom spotting a lovely promopic of Pepper on the shelves.
Janelle is reassuring Susan that the job is in the bag as they head to the bar but Susan isn't so sure as we cut to Lou who is on the phone to Mishka promising her that she won't be disappointed the next time she sees him for their breakfast in bed date!
He finishes his call then remarks to Susan and Janelle that he was surprised at them allowing Rachel and Bree to see the spiritualist. The ladies aren't amused and Harold assures them that if they haven't given their permission, then they wouldn't have gone because Sky wouldn't deceive them. Susan and Janelle think different and ask where they can go to meet “this call artist” and Lou suggests the rotunda in the park.
The ladies depart and Harold tells Lou that the girls would have lied to Sky if they have gone but Lou has his head screwed on and tells his friend that he has to pull Sky into line about this and wishes he'd kept quiet. Harold replies that Terrance is just bringing them comfort and Lou asks him to step back and see the bigger picture.
LOU: Harold, Madge is dead, so is young Scott. They cannot send messages mate and you know that in your heart and in your head.
As they make their way to the rotunda, Sky asks the girls what they've brought along to help Terrance and Bree tells her about a book she got from Stingray while Rachel shows the necklace he bought her. She tells them that personal things help Terrance to concentrate on Stinger's spirit. Sky isn't pleased to hear that the girls aren't going to tell Terrance any personal things just in case he is toying with them. She then suggests that they leave because she doesn't want them mucking things up with Terrance causing her to lose Stinger again. Bree points out that he was her brother and Rachel adds that they are taking it seriously. Sky reassures them that they won't be taken for suckers because Terrance is a nice man as well as being genuine.
Susan and Janelle catch up with them and Susan orders Rachel home and Janelle joins in by telling Sky off for leading the girls on, which she totally denies.
SKY: It is real. I'm talking to Stingray and the girls could be too.
Janelle tells her to keep on believing that if she wants but tells her to leave Bree out of it and asks for Stinger's skateboard back. Sky refuses to hand it over and asks to be left alone, which happens when the four of them leave.
Susan and Rachel are having a bit of a set-to about the spiritualist when Lolly arrives but instead of knocking, she listens to them argue. Finally, Rachel plays the trump cards of ‘I thought you trusted me' which has Susan backing down and the eventual hug and apology is forthcoming from her. This has Lolly running off with a smile on her face while inside, Rachel suss' what Susan is uptight about – Karl hasn't rung from the UK yet – but reassures her that she means the world to Karl and so has no reason to worry.
Steiger escorts his daughter home and just as she is thanking him for his help they hear a baby crying in the house. Steiger rushes into the house and is followed immediately by Pepper despite him telling her to wait and they see a bassinet lying on the sofa. They slowly creep up to it but instead of finding a crying baby under the blanket they find a note and a tape playing a baby crying under the pillow. Pepper picks up the note to read.
PEPPER: I could see you weren't alone today. Don't play with fire. Next time you'll get burned.
