Declan finds out Oliver's his brother.
Trapped in the minibus, Ringo tells Carmella he loves her and tries to get her to admit she feels the same.
Frazer gets angry at Toadie for drinking when he was designated driver.
Toadie gets charged for driving over the limit and dangerous driving causing serious injury.
Toadie's getting walked out of the hotel by the police, accompanied by Steph. They get accosted by journalists who want to know how the charge will affect his career and if Toadie's denying he was over the limit. Steph speaks for him about how it won't affect his career and how there's been a mistake. Toadie just says he's really sorry to Frazer as he passes him.
Carmella's praying, asking god to let Ringo live and how saying she's made a mess of things but she'll fix it and make everything right.
Steph's anxiously waiting for Toadie, who comes out and is, according to the police officer, free to go. Toadie explains that his license has been suspended, he could be disbarred and even go to jail. Steph's still emphatically saying that Toadie didn't drink enough to be over the limit. The police officer explains that the blood test says otherwise. Toadie agrees, saying he thought he was fine but obviously he wasn't. Steph's frustrated, saying of course he was fine and she wouldn't have let him drive otherwise.
TOADIE: If I had any sense I wouldn't have drank at all, then my reaction time would have been quicker, I would have seen the truck earlier and Ringo wouldn't be lying in a hospital bed right now.
Frazer's angrily telling Adam that he hopes Toadie has the book thrown at him. Adam, however, thinks they all need to try and take some responsibility - they were all mucking around and didn't make it easy for Toadie to concentrate. Frazer replies that Toadie was drunk and shouldn't have been behind the wheel. Adam says that in some cases it's not as black and white as you think and if he'd been driving the bus stone cold sober he doesn't think he'd have been able to stay out the way of the truck. Frazer asks if he'd be as reasonable if it was Pepper in Ringo's place.
ADAM: I'd like to think I'd try.
Frazer explains that Ringo's 17, he's Ringo's guardian and he promised their mother he'd look after him. He and Rosie go into Ringo's room and Pepper tells Adam off, saying that Frazer and Rosie are supposed to be on their honeymoon and Adam should have just let Frazer vent. Adam thinks Frazer needs to get things into perspective and he doesn't want Frazer doing something stupid.
Steph is telling Toadie that she thinks there's got to be some mistake - maybe there was grappa in the fruit salad. Toadie says nothing and Steph wants him to at least defend himself. Steph walks off to help at the bar, leaving Toadie alone with Charlie. She immediately walks back to tell Toadie that she can't watch Toadie do the same thing Max did because it nearly killed her to see him falling into a black pit. Toadie just wants Steph to leave it, but she won't - he's a good person and he should at least be standing up for himself. He won't hear it, so he hands Charlie over to Steph and leaves.
In Ringo's room, Carmella sitting next to his bed on a chair whilst Frazer stands at the end of the bed staring at Ringo intently. Rosie comes in and gets Frazer to go with her to get something to eat. Carmella puts her head in her hands. Ringo wakes up and takes Carmella's hand. She realises he's awake and wants to get a doctor, but he won't let her. He remembers that they had both said they loved each other. Carmella wants them to talk later. Ringo drifts off back to sleep.
Oliver's telling Elle that he couldn't just walk away because he's his brother. Elle wonders if it was really the best way to tell him. Oliver knows he and Declan won't be best mates overnight but he and Rebecca are dedicated to making it work and he thinks Declan will come around. Elle stays ominously silent - she doesn't want Oliver to get his hopes up. Ned, who's been standing in the background, asks to butt in. Elle over-rides Oliver to let him. Ned explains that it was massive when Mickey got dumped on him but now he can't imagine life without him. Elle replies that Mickey's eight and it's a lot easier to accept change at that age. Ned tells Oliver that Declan might surprise him and it's good he gave him a chance. He leaves to check on Mickey. Oliver concedes that Ned may not be all bad. Elle explains that she was playing devil's advocate because she worries. There's a knock at the door - it's Declan, who's come to tell Oliver not to come to their house again. Oliver points out that they're family.
DECLAN: We might be related, but we're definitely not family.
Ned comes in, and is furious to see Declan - he grabs him and throws him out of the house, saying something about him being anywhere Mickey again. Oliver asks what that was about, so Ned explains Declan's the one that got Mickey in trouble. Elle tells Ned that's Oliver's brother.
Rosie and Frazer come running in, thrilled that Ringo's awake The doctor says he's fine - he'll make a full recovery. Pepper and Adam come in as the doctor leaves to say hi to Ringo as well. Pepper's really excited. Ringo thinks he's fine but Frazer points out that he's recovering from serious injury. Carmella, feeling uncomfortable, says there are too many in the room so she's going. Ringo asks her to stay, but Carmella leaves anyway, really worried and anxious.
Toadie comes in to speak to Steph. Steph apologises for what she said about Max. Toadie says he's sorry - he needed to hear it and he should be the one apologizing. He knows that what happened was an accident but he still played a part and he's willing to accept the consequences. Toadie says he'll plead his case, lose his license, most likely lose his job but he doesn't want to lose Steph. Steph hugs him and tells him he's not going to lose her. Toadie's pleased because he never wants to see that look on her face again. They kiss. They hug. Steph wants to give him a surprise and phones someone to tell them he's there. Steph tells him that he's been so stressed lately and he's been going on about this perfect meal thing. Toadie thinks she cooked it. Steph concedes she had some help just as Susan walks in with a tray of food. Steph explains that they love him all so much (an incidental point, but I feel important - Susan touches his cheek in that cool maternal way she does) and they thought this would be the best way to show him. Well, they do say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach.
Carmella anxiously knocks on the door to go into Rosie and Frazer's room, despite it being the middle of the night. She wants to talk to Rosie, so Frazer makes himself scarce. Rosie asks what's up and assures her that if it's Ringo they'll have him home soon enough.
CARMELLA: You're gonna hate me. Um, I lied to you. I met him in secret. More than once. I kissed him. I even tried to seduce him.
CARMELLA: But nothing happened, I swear. The thing is I told him I love him, when we were trapped in the bus, you know we thought we were gonna die but the thing is, I don't love him. Well, not in the way he thinks I do anyway and not in the way he thinks he loves me. Oh, he's just a boy. Rosie, say something.
Rosie reminds Carmella of her apology about the Ringo situation on their way to the church. Carmella cries and says she's sorry. Rosie has gone into lawyer mode, completely calm and unemotional. It's scary. Anyway, she tells Carmella that she lied to Rosie and to Frazer. Carmella just cries. Rosie then asks about that night under Carmella's bed. Carmella admits she let Ringo take the blame.
ROSIE: You took advantage of a really sweet boy who trusted you. I don't even know who you are anymore.
Adam tells Pepper that she knew he was on a visa. Pepper didn't realize it was so soon and wants to know why he didn't warn her. Adam says it's easy to replace and he's done it once before. Pepper asks what he was planning on doing - running off to the UK and dumping her? Adam tells Pepper that at the hospital, when he was holding her and they were going through it together, he knew she was for keeps. Adam thinks he'll get his extension - he'll tell the immigration people about Pepper. Pepper offers to go with him so that they know they're for real.
Ringo's parents have obviously just left his room, much to Ringo's relief. Frazer tells him their mum is sticking around because apparently she doesn't trust the doctors and reckons Ringo looks peaky. Ringo claims to feel fantastic and can't wait to get out of hospital. Ringo asks Frazer if he saw things more clearly when he had his accident. Frazer very carefully replies that he knew what mattered and what didn't. Ringo says he did too - in the bus he knew exactly what matters in life.
FRAZER: You found god.
Ringo says it was better. He explains that no matter what, you've got to follow your heart and not worry about what anyone else thinks. He quotes Polonius (but attributes it to Susan): 'To thine ownself be true'. Ringo thinks it's true - if you're not doing what your gut tells you, what's the point. Frazer's just glad Ringo's guts are still in one piece.
Pepper and Adam walk in - apparently Adam's had a bridging visa recommended to him so he can apply for a work or spouse visa. Pepper thinks a work one is good because he has a full time job, he pays taxes and he's a good labourer. Adam says he'd have to go out of the country to re-apply for his visa and he can't go doing that and messing Pepper around. Adam thinks they need a long term solution. He can't go back to London because of the memories but he has a brother in Italy.
Ned and Mickey have come to visit Ringo. Mickey's reluctant to go in but Ned tells him Ringo's in a good mood and doesn't look sick. This cheers Mickey up so they go into Ringo's room. Ringo thanks Mickey for his picture. Mickey tells Ringo he's really sorry he got hurt because of him. Ringo says it was an accident and everyone makes mistakes so he should forget about it. Ringo tells Mickey about how brave Ned was for getting everybody out of the bus and even calls Ned a hero. He thanks Ned for saving his life. Mickey's really proud of his hero dad and hugs him.
Rosie's asking Pepper how she (Carmella) could do this. Pepper really calmly says that she didn't realize Carmella was in such a bad way. Rosie hopes Pepper isn't excusing her, but Pepper just says she knew Carmella was messed up but didn't know it was to this extent. She says she's not excusing Carmella, and poor Ringo, but Carmella's had a really tough time lately. Rosie says that they've all had a really tough time - including Frazer. Pepper explains that Frazer has had Rosie and Carmella has been on her own. Rosie doesn't think that's an excuse. Pepper says she pities Carmella and so should Rosie - she's got every right to be angry at Carmella but she does also deserve her sympathy. Rosie thinks she should have known better.
PEPPER: Argh, Rosie, you've admired the view for long enough - you can come down now.
PEPPER: From the high moral ground. Are you actually sure you're even entitled to be up there?
Rosie asks what Pepper means. Pepper reminds her of being in a cellar with a man days before his wedding. She adds that Rosie's said her piece but now it's time to help Carmella because right now she's feeling really rotten about herself.
Declan picks up a couple of bills that are overdue and sees a box. He opens it and finds all the cuttings of Oliver from when he was young. He sets fire to one of them and picks up another clipping - a more recent one about how Oliver is heir to a multi-million dollar family fortune. A slight smirk spreads over his face.
Oliver's in the restaurant and Declan comes in - Declan says his mother didn't send him, he just thought he should apologise for what he said. He says he's not a criminal - if people are stupid enough to leave their stuff lying around, he's going to help Rebecca pay her bills. Oliver asks if she knew he'd done it. Declan emphatically denies it, saying she hates what he did. He goes to storm off but Oliver asks him to have lunch with him. Oliver says he's not the enemy, he just wants to get to know Declan. Declan goes to sit down and asks what big brothers do. Oliver doesn't know - he never got along with his little brother. Declan points out that he's not really his brother if Oliver's his. Oliver thinks it explains a few things. Oliver asks if Declan goes to school. Declan pauses and says that year 10 formal is coming up. Oliver thinks it's the fact that he doesn't have a date, but this is not the case. Declan says it's the fact that he has no suit - he's never owned one in his life. Oliver pulls a wad of cash out of his pocket, saying he's allowed to give his little brother a present. Declan says he couldn't and that Rebecca would have a fit but Declan takes it anyway. Oliver goes to a meeting but says Declan can have whatever he wants for lunch - it's on the house. Declan looks at the money and says, 'Too easy.'
Rosie and Carmella are in Rosie's room, with Rosie saying that Carmella's her sister and she can't hate her. Carmella says she hates herself. Rosie thinks that she'll forgive herself by helping Ringo to cope and making everything right again. Frazer comes in with a bottle of wine to have a small celebration with his 'two favourite girls'. Rosie stands up and Frazer asks what's up. She tells him to sit down - she and Carmella have something to tell him and she wants him to stay calm.
Advert break - it's salient to point this out.
Frazer's holding a bunch of stuff and striding down the driveway, followed by Carmella and Rosie, who's telling him he can't do this - she hasn't got anywhere to go. He chucks what appears to be Carmella's stuff into her van and says there plenty of bridges she can sleep under. He strides off and Carmella tells Rosie she'll stay at Lucia's. She adds that she's sorry. Rosie tells her not to go anywhere like this - she'll talk to Frazer.
ROSIE: Frazer, we can deal with this like...
FRAZER: Like adults? Is that what you were gonna say?
FRAZER: Workshopped it with the girls already, have you Rosie? Got it all under control.
ROSIE: I'm trying to be reasonable.
FRAZER: Me too! And it's perfectly reasonable to my mind that your selfish, lying sister go straight to hell.
