Recap
Pepper gets locked in at Mary's
Tom offers Susan an out on the Year 10 camp and admits he was out of line to ask for her resignation.
Locked in the nursery at Scary Mary's, Pepper realises what's going on as Mary tells her that Pepper taking her grandchild away stopped time.
Scary Mary's House of Horrors
Pepper is banging on the window, shouting out for help. A bottle of water is pushed through the cat flap in the door and Pepper starts banging the door, pleading for Mary to open it. She's obviously been shouting for help for ages and is panting. Eventually she starts drinking from the bottle of water.
Ramsay Street
Tom is rounding up the kids for their camping trip. Lolly comes out with Harold and says she wants to spend time with Lou because she might be going soon. Harold assures her that she's not going anywhere in the near future. Tom makes some lame joke about if anybody else has another guitar, he'll be leading the singing from the front seat. The kids groan. Rachel and Zeke get to the coach and Tom reckons they shouldn't have an excuse for being late. Susan tells him it's because they were helping her pack – she's coming because someone had a sick child. There's a brief awkward silence after Susan explains that she's had to step into the breach and Tom takes it upon himself to quote Henry V. He then offers to take Susan's bag and put it on the coach only to be greeted by wolf whistles and general 'wahey' noises from the kids. Tom says it's called being a gentleman and suggests they look it up in their history books. Rachel and Zeke do not look pleased.
General Store
Scary Mary comes in and clearly knows Harold, who's pleased to see her and asks about Kevin. He explains that Kevin has to answer for his own actions and it's not her fault. Mary thinks it's easier said than done, that she's been through some tough times and she's always been very grateful to the Salvation Army for their visits. Harold says he's only too happy to help again and offers to drop round for a chat. Mary suddenly exclaims, 'No, don't!' before collecting herself and explaining that she's on edge, she's currently got a visitor who is helping her through it but she's very shy and awkward with strangers. Harold is just pleased there's someone there for her.
Scary Mary's House of Horrors
Pepper is sat on the floor, pretty out of it, when Mary comes in with some ropes and says she had to go out because Pepper was being so loud. Pepper tries to talk but can't and just throws the bottle of water on the floor. Mary says Pepper must have exhausted herself after making all that noise before picking the bottle up and adding, 'Or maybe it was something you drank.' Pepper collapses onto the floor. Mary sits on the bed and tells Pepper she's going to have to settle down because she's going to be there for a long time.
The School Camp
Tom tells the kids to pair up, get themselves organised and the orienteering event starts in half an hour. The kids don't even feign enthusiasm and Tom orders them off before walking off. Rachel comments to Susan that it was funny they couldn't find another teacher to fill in. Susan tells Rachel that if she could have found somebody else, she would have. Lolly and Rachel agree to pair up and share a tent but Ringo thinks it's going to be dangerous for him and Zeke against the tsunami of gossip coming out of the girls' tent. Tom and Susan are left alone in the big teachers' tent, and Susan looks over to Tom before we have a 2004 flashback of Tom and Susan kissing. Susan closes her eyes in nostalgia before looking back over to Tom and looking disconcerted that she's been having the flashbacks. Tom apologises for the accommodation but Susan insists it's fine before explaining that it'll be better for her to camp down near the girls. Susan walks off and Tom looks after her. He looks into the middle distance and we get another flashback – this time of the first time Tom and Susan slept together. He smiles an almost letchy smile.
We're back at the camp after the break, with Ringo and Zeke trying (trying being the operative word) to build their tent and Zeke asking if the girls are really going to be gossiping about them. Ringo says they've got to find some common ground or kill each other. Zeke asks what they're going to be gossiping about. Them, Ringo explains, because they're two of the best looking guys on the camp. But the massacre is more likely, he adds. Zeke thought they were getting along now but Ringo tells him he (Zeke) really doesn't know that much about girls. Ringo gets distracted and drops the tent. It turns out he's looking at Rachel and Lolly and he thinks that them being in a tent together is definitely a bad idea. Rachel and Lolly have successfully built their tent and so sit down to some chocolate. Meanwhile, Zeke is underneath his and Ringo's tent, trying to direct Ringo to help him and quite obviously failing. Rachel and Lolly, meanwhile, are talking clothes and agree to swap tops. Zeke and Ringo are still battling with their tent, talking about securing poles and doing the sides, when Tom comes over and manages, somehow, to rescue the whole thing by picking up a pole and putting it into the ground, thereby rendering the tent complete and tells them it's twelve minutes until the challenge starts. Zeke talks about him with disdain: 'Thinks he's Mr Charisma, doesn't he?' but Ringo doesn't understand his issue.
All the kids look puzzled as Susan puts her own tent up, far away from Tom and his tent. On the orienteering track, Ringo and Zeke are lost and Ringo is commenting sarcastically about Karl having taught Zeke to use a compass and points out that they're going around in circles.
RINGO: Watch out.
ZEKE: What?
Zeke trips up on a tree root that's sticking out of the ground and apparently he tripped over it last time they went through there. Ringo says it doesn't matter that Zeke wrecked the tent because they'll be out there all night before he spots Rachel and Lolly running past. He drags Zeke back and they crouch behind a bush. Ringo decides they're going to follow the girls to the finish but Zeke's concerned that they'll be caught out for cheating. Ringo doesn't care – they get to go for a swim in the river at the end of the course and that means chicks in swimsuits and he can live without marker flags if it means seeing Rachel in a bikini again. Zeke's disgusted so Ringo reminds him that Lolly will also be in a swimsuit.
ZEKE: No way, I've got a girlfriend.
RINGO: Ok, well you stay here, thinking about Bree, meanwhile I'm off to Bikiniville.
Tom and Susan walk past some very excited children and Tom decides they need to get a move on because he found out that the teachers have never lost the challenge and it's not going to change. Susan calmly opens her bag and pulls out a whole bunch of markers. Tom's stunned, but Susan says it's the same as they do every year.
TOM: We cheat?!
SUSAN: Well, you know, it's really only about cheating if the event is to do with winning and losing.
TOM: Well, yeah, sure it's mostly about taking part…
SUSAN: Ha! It's got nothing to do with taking part. It's about exhausting them so they're too tired to play up. You'll see the wisdom. We've got about half an hour before we have to be at the finish line.
TOM: I have much to learn.
Susan laughs and pours them a cup of coffee or something from a flask.
Scary Mary's House of Horrors
There's music coming from one of those baby mobile things and Mary is sat on the bed knitting as Pepper, now tied to a chair, comes to and begins to attempt to struggle out of the ropes. Mary tells her there's no point struggling because they're double knots. Pepper continues to struggle but Mary says she thought Pepper would have realised by now that people tell her things for a reason. Pepper tries to call out for help but simply ends up coughing and spluttering. Mary starts cackling and says that's exactly what she's talking about – she tells Pepper there's no point in yelling and yet Pepper goes ahead and yells…
MARY: I'd expect that from a child, not a seventeen year old.
PEPPER: What? Seventeen?
Mary continues to reiterate that Pepper is going to be there for a long time and how easy or hard that is depends entirely on her behaviour. Pepper apologises and says she'll be good, she promises. Mary thinks it's about time after she took her into her house and treated her like her daughter and all Pepper did was complain.
PEPPER: I'm tied to a chair!
MARY: All you do is complain.
Pepper apologises again and Mary says that later they're going to have cake but for now she has a special treat that Pepper's going to love. Mary pulls out a box and takes some baby socks or something out. She waxes lyrical about how gorgeous they are and how you forget how small they are. Then she takes out a silver goblet and tells Pepper that they can have the name and date of birth engraved on it.
PEPPER: Whose name and date of birth?
MARY: Well, the baby of course!
She carries on, taking out a white gown and explaining to Pepper that it's special because it's the Casey family christening dress and Pepper's baby will be the fifth generation to wear it. Pepper sighs at the realisation of what Mary's planning.
The School Camp
Tom and Susan look on as the kids walk down towards the lake and Rachel reassures Ringo that she's going to be right beside him the whole time.
RINGO: Can I grab you if I start to sink?
RACHEL: If you start to sink, I'll call Tom – maybe you can grab him.
RINGO: What if I'm not sinking; where do we stand on grabbing then?
RACHEL: Let's just say if there's going to be any grabbing there'll be none of…
She grabs Ringo's arm and drags him behind a bush before kissing him. Lolly is asking Zeke if he wishes Bree were there after seeing Rachel and Ringo together. Zeke explains that they don't go in for that sort of thing and they're more of an intellectual couple. Lolly laughs and says good for him as she takes off her towel to reveal her bikini wearing just a bikini. Zeke gets really nervous and hot and bothered as Lolly tries to persuade him to go in for a swim. Zeke doesn't know what to say so runs off making the excuse that he has to see Tom and Susan. He runs up them and congratulates them on winning. Susan thanks him and Zeke goes babbling on about the orienteering, asking if it's about tactics or fitness. Susan doesn't quite know what's going on and asks if he's swimming.
ZEKE: Oh, no – orienteering overload!
SUSAN: Yeah, it can be exhausting, can't it?
ZEKE: I might go lie down and get away from everyone.
Zeke walks off (probably to find a cold shower) and Susan turns to Tom with an expression of glee. Tom gestures in reverence.
Number 30
Rosie is fiddling with the television and Frazer asks what it is. Rosie explains that she wants to follow her selections and that's why she took so long – she had to stop off at the betting shop.
FRAZER: You don't gamble.
ROSIE: Well, anything's worth a try once and I thought you could explain all the ins and outs to me.
(Frosie fans, she starts to stroke Frazer's leg)
Frazer's a bit annoyed and points out that she promised they wouldn't talk about horseracing but Rosie explains that she didn't, he just assumed. Then she changes tack and says that Frazer loves racing and he doesn't need to cut himself off from it (cue another leg stroke). Frazer seems to have decided that it's a shallow, self absorbed life. Rosie thinks it's also his passion and something he's gifted at. Frazer explains that it's part of his old life, a life he doesn't want to have anything to do with. Rosie's bored of trying to persuade him so tells him to eat his pizza and she'll watch the race alone.
ROSIE: Ooh, look, they're about to start running!
FRAZER: Jump, they're about to jum…
ROSIE: Hey, look, there's mine – Franca's Boy!
FRAZER: You backed an 80/1 shot?!
ROSIE: My aunty's name is Franca.
FRAZER: Why don't you just burn your money in the back yard?
ROSIE: What's it to you?
FRAZER: Nothing.
Frazer feigns looking around the room but his attention is caught by the TV. Rosie realises that her horse is winning and gets really excited about it. Frazer tries to make out he's still not interested.
The School Camp
Zeke and Ringo are sneaking around and Zeke doesn't think it's a very good idea. Ringo wants him to stop being a wuss for one minute but Zeke thinks it's not being a wuss, it's immature. Ringo says it's not, it's simple and all the best plans are – if they're scared, they'll go to them for comfort. At that point, they see the girls walking past, and Lolly is asking Rachel if Zeke doesn't like swimming. Rachel tells her he likes it a lot. Lolly starts to talk about Zeke having something going on and Rachel stops her, telling her it's not a conversation she wants to be having, especially when Lolly says Zeke is cute. Rachel exclaims, 'Eugh,' but it's at something in her sleeping bag. Then she starts screaming and they start jumping around in the tent, shrieking like little girls. The tent completely falls down and they run out. Susan rushes over to find out what the fuss is about. She heads over to the sleeping bag and picks up a rubber snake – a prank, it turns out, and she knows the pranksters are around watching. She stands still for a moment, standing completely still before she suddenly turns to her right and shouts, 'You two, come here!' and thereby reveals that NinjaSuse is in full swing. The boys are gutted and skulk over towards Susan who shows them the tent and says it can't be fixed. The girls want to know where they're going to sleep (Lolly suggests the boys' tent) but they have to go into Susan's tent and she'll crash in with Tom. Rachel becomes livid and Susan sends the boys back to their tent to be dealt with later.
Number 30
Rosie's really pleased about and jokes about how doesn't remember Frazer picking so many winners. Frazer says it's just beginner's luck and Rosie continues on the jovial camaraderie track, saying that jealousy is an unattractive quality and he should ring his bookie to put them both out of their misery or is he scared she'll beat him? Frazer simply says she's really bad at reverse psychology. Rosie says that if she is, why is there (metaphorical) drool coming out of his mouth? They both start laughing when Rosie's phone goes off – a text from the video store saying that the DVD she ordered is in. Frazer asks if she's still not heard from Pepper. Rosie says no, not since she heard from Pepper in a text message that didn't sound like her – it was formal and stilted but it said she needed to get away for a few days. Frazer's not surprised she wanted to get away after what she went through but suggests she try her again.
Scary Mary's House of Horrors
Pepper is still struggling against the chair when she spies her mobile phone. She tries to reach out to it with her feet but to no avail and so rocks herself on the chair to tip herself onto the floor sideways.
Number 30
Rosie's sent Pepper a text message before getting back to watching the racing.
Scary Mary's House of Horrors
Pepper dials Rosie, who answers. Pepper hasn't got the phone next to her ear and shouts that she needs her help. Rosie can't hear her but Pepper persists, explaining that she's in danger. Rosie still can't hear her. She's stopped by Mary's entrance, who takes the phone and cuts the line off. Mary asks Pepper when she's going to learn – she wants to treat her like an adult but she keeps on behaving like a child.
Number 30
We see Frazer grabbing hold of a laughing Rosie's hand before we see Rosie's face and she explains to Frazer that he can't do this – it's not fair because he had his chance and he broke her heart. She tries to get back to the racing but Frazer has something he wants to say.
FRAZER: When I said that I only wanted friendship, Rosie, it was because I didn't think I could work on my recovery and a relationship at the same time.
ROSIE: Yeah, well you were probably right.
FRAZER: I wasn't counting on how hard it was going to be resisting you.
ROSIE: Uh, I'm gonna go and pick up that DVD.
FRAZER: Ok, I know I probably don't deserve it, alright, but can you think about it? About… us.
Rosie stands up and walks to the window, really anxious and breathing quite heavily. She stands there for a few moments, wringing her hands, glancing back at Frazer and sighing as Frazer just stares into his lap. Then she walks behind the sofa and drops herself down over the back of it, grabbing Frazer's face and kissing him intently.
The School Camp
Susan calls out hello as she walks into Tom's tent. Tom is surprised to see her and Susan just says it's a long story but has to bunk in with him if that's alright. He says it's fine and Susan refuses all offers of help from him, telling him to pretend she's not there.
Number 30 Where It's Getting Hot
Frazer and Rosie are still pashing before Frazer pulls away. Rosie lets her head drop onto Frazer's lap, exasperated and asking, 'What is it?' Frazer explains that he could be writing cheques his body can't cash. Rosie smiles and asks who said he's going to be cashing any. Then she laughs before she goes back to being more serious and explains that she's not in a hurry for things to be any more physical than they are. Frazer asks what if it doesn't change and he's like that forever.
ROSIE (whispering): I don't care.
FRAZER: Rosie, I'm giving you an out here.
ROSIE: I just want to be with you. It's what I've wanted for a really long time. In fact, I can't think of anything in the world that I want more.
FRAZER: Well there's a coincidence.
They kiss again – little short, tender kisses, and the camera pans out as the music plays ("Crazy As It Seems"), with the lyrics, 'Well that's what you get for loving me.'
