Recap
Libby finding out that Ned, Miranda and Steve all knew about Darren and Janae before she did.
Steve refusing to believe that Bridget could be having a relationship with a teacher and Bridget continuing to cover for Rachel by saying she has a crush on Angus.
Erinsborough High
Bridget tries to reassure Dan and Steve that her "crush" on Mr Henderson is over now. Steve asks angrily if he laid a finger on her, but Bridget insists nothing happened. Dan asks if Angus initiated or encouraged any of this, but she staunchly denies it, saying it was her fault. Dan promises to follow it up, but until then he suggests that Bridget changes class (what? There's more than one class in Erinsborough High?). Steve's not having any of it.
STEVE: Tomorrow you're enrolled in a girls' school.
Number 32
Janae jumps up off the sofa when Steph comes in and lends a hand with her bags. She lists all the things she's done to help (including taking a call from Summer, who I'd forgotten existed) but Steph says it's ok and tells her to go sit down. Steph's spoken to Libby and when Janae realises Lib and Darren are over says she has to talk to her. Steph doesn't think it's a good idea but Janae's desperate to stop Libby from throwing it all away just because of her stupid mistake. Steph warns her against it - Libby's got a lot on her mind.
However, Libby clearly does want to talk to Janae, and she marches through the front door with impeccable timing. Janae tries to apologise but Libby says she doesn't want an apology, she just wants to talk.
Erinsborough High
Taylah is telling an anxious-looking Rachel that she's worried about what's going to happen to Bridget; she didn't mean to land her in it. Meanwhile, Dan is telling Steve a change in school isn't necessary, and Bridget agrees. He lets Bridget know he's always there and suggests she and her dad go home to talk things over.
Ringo, Declan and Zeke appear, asking what's going on. Taylah almost gives the game away but Rachel stops her. She let's slip that Didge's parents have been called in, but says everything's ok. Bridget comes out but her dad makes her leave straight away. Declan's wondering what was in the note that's caused all this to happen, and tells Rachel he'll find out anyway.
Number 32
Libby reassures Janae that she and Darren were over way before she came along and that she did them a favour. She's there because she doesn't want any friction between them now she's staying in Erinsborough. Janae agrees she'd really like to make things work.
Number 26
Bridget tells Miranda that she doesn't want to go to a girls' school. Miranda doesn't understand what it is about Mr Henderson that made her act so rashly, or where Josh fits into all of this. Bridget won't answer, so Miranda doesn't understand how they work it out. Riley arrives home, which is a nice cue for some well-placed awkwardness. Steve tells him that Bridget's lost all sense of reason, and they walk away together. Miranda tries again to get Bridget to talk to her, remembering conversations they had about her confusing feelings, suddenly thinking that everything's falling into place. Riley tries to talk to her, but she wants to be left alone. Riley can't believe that Bridget would get so carried away unless she was encouraged and wants to know more about Mr Henderson.
Erinsborough High
Dan tells Angus that he's spoken to Bridget who has insisted the whole thing's one-sided, so apologises for doubting him. Angus says it's understandable. Dan offers him a drink in the pub later and they shake on it.
The boys are discussing what's going on. Zeke's heard it's because she's got a crush on "Hendo", which Declan refuses to believe. Ringo's heard that her parents are going to send her to St Mary's but Zeke thinks that's unlikely if it's just a crush. Rachel looks curiously over the lockers and Declan goes over to her, asking if she's heard what everyone's saying about her friend. She brushes it off as gossip, but Declan thinks she should defend her. Rachel tells him it's none of his or anyone else's business.
Carmella's Flat
Rosie's brought round the DVD of support messages from the barbecue and puts it on. She mentions the people who are on it, casually slipping in Marco's name, but Carmella doesn't miss a trick and chastises her. Rosie says she doesn't know what she's talking about. Carmella goes to answer her phone and Rosie mutters "damn" - she was hoping to play the vid. It's Lucia on the phone, and Carm promises she'll never get grumpy at her again and tells her they're doing fine. She passes the phone onto Rosie as quickly as she can and she proceeds to chide her for giving Carmella a hard time and tells her to stop it. Carmella puts on the DVD to see Marco's smiling face telling her that the best five words he's ever heard are "mother and baby doing well". She looks a bit emotional and Rosie hangs up on Lucia but is warned by Carmella not to say a word. She manages to get one last thing in before closing the subject.
ROSIE: If you love him, really love him, don't you dare let him walk away.
Carmella still won't talk about it and asks her to move something for her because she's not supposed to lift stuff.
Number 28
Libby's ringing Darren to ask him to come over because she doesn't want to leave things the way they are and Ben has a right to know what's going on. She thanks him and hangs up.
Ramsay Street
Declan approaches Didge who is sitting on the wall and asks her what colour Mr Henderson's eyes are. She tells him to go away, he's not funny. Declan thinks the fact that she doesn't know the colour of his eyes proves she doesn't have a crush on him. He's got to the crux of the problem, telling her she's protecting Rachel. She tells him to drop it, but he won't. He thinks Rachel wouldn't do the same for her, but she disagrees. She asks him not to tell anyone, but he doesn't think he can do that.
Number 28
Darren arrives and says hi to Ben. Libby tells Darren he knows something's up, but she hasn't told him what - she thought they should do it together. He thanks her and asks her how much she wants him to say. She suggests they just play it by ear. Libby asks Ben to pause his video game so they can talk. She explains that they're going to keep living there with the family, which makes him happy because it means he can go to school with Mickey. They have to tell him that Darren won't be living with them - he's going back to Shepparton because they're not going to be boyfriend and girlfriend anymore. Ben doesn't understand why. Libby just tells him that he won't lose Darren - he can call him and visit.
BEN: Why can't we all live together?
DARREN: Sometimes it just doesn't work out.
BEN: To Libby I thought you said you were going to try harder?
Darren explains that it's his fault - he hurt Libby's feelings very badly. Ben wants to know what he did but Libby assures him it's no one's fault - they just want him to know that Darren loves him very much. In which case, Ben can't understand why Darren's going and walks off. Libby asks Darren to stay and spend some time with Ben and he agrees.
Number 26
Steve's watching Bridget as she walks back to the house and reports back to Miranda who informs him she'll do the talking. As Bridget enters, Miranda does her slightly creepy caring mum routine, telling her they're not angry, they just want to have a chat. Miranda tries to put it nicely, butt Steve butts in with "Did that mongrel step over the line with you?" He thinks her story doesn't make sense and Miranda tells her they're worried about her. Bridget is still sticking to her story and Steve refuses to change his mind either, telling her she's going to be enrolled at St Mary's.
Janae's at the door with some baked goods, but she's worried she's intruding. Steve and Miranda tell her not to worry. She asks after Ned and Steve tells her to sit down - Ned's just out the back with Mickey. Janae tells him not to worry, she'll wait, and leaves.
Ramsay Street
Bridget's on her way to school, passing the "For Sale" sign outside her house, where Rachel is standing. Bridget affirms that it's true her parents are going to make her move schools. Rachel apologises for stuffing everything up. She doesn't want Bridget to move schools, but Bridget thinks it might be for the best. Rachel's not having it, St Mary's is foul, so she'll think of something to say to Didge's parents. Bridget tells her to leave it, she doesn't want to upset them again.
RACHEL: So it's really that bad?
BRIDGET: What do you think?
RACHEL: TearfulI'm so sorry.
Bridget tells her to forget it, it will blow over. Declan appears from behind them and disagrees. He accuses Rachel of being a selfish, gutless cow. She looks a bit shocked and it's left to Bridget to keep up the pretence that nothing's going on when Ringo appears.
The General Store
Frazer comes in and Valda jokes with him about being hard at work and then excuses herself - something to do with Harold's stuffed olives. Is it just me, or does innuendo follow Valda wherever she goes? Anyway, it leaves Frazer to ask Marco about his suspicious-looking suitcase. Marco tells him he's going to Perth but has no answer when Frazer questions when he'll be back.
MARCO: Carmella made it pretty clear what she wants.
FRAZER: I know, mate.
MARCO: She's trying to do the right thing. So am I.
He tells Frazer his flight's at 9.30 and Frazer offers a lift which Marco gratefully accepts. Frazer reminds Marco that if they get halfway there and he changes his mind, he'll bring him straight back, no charges. Marco smiles awkwardly.
Ramsay Street
Darren's setting off and saying goodbye to Lou and Susan, who is no more than civil. He gives Ben a huge hug goodbye and they both tell one another they'll miss each other. Ben promises to take care of his mum. Both Darren and Libby are tearful as they say goodbye to each other and Lou and Susan look on morosely as Darren drives away. Libby tells Ben she'll be fine if he looks after her. Mickey invites Ben to the park (and not the pub, as I first heard) before school but he says no. Ned suggests that Ben and his mum might need some time alone. Mickey asks if he's sick and Ben tells him Darren's gone. Mickey's glad that Ben's staying and tells him his dad can play footy with him he wants. Ben suddenly wants to go to the park and runs off with Mickey. Libby sighs in a half-contented, half-resigned sort of way.
The Airport
Frazer gives Marco the ride for free but can't stop himself trying to help one last time.
FRAZER: Marco, I made Rosie promise not to interfere so if you do see her again, please don't say anything, ok? What the hell are you doing?
MARCO: Frazer, please don't.
FRAZER: I am serious mate, she is nuts about you, we can all see it.
MARCO: She's made her choice.
FRAZER: Dude, she's just had a baby! She's the world's most confused woman. At least wait for the hormones to settle down. Unless, of course, you're chicken.
Frazer advises him not to walk away from her - they've got something that doesn't come along very often and if he loves her he should put it all on the line. Marco still refuses, saying this is what Carmella wants. Frazer looks frustrated as Marco walks into the airport.
Carmella's Flat
Carmella's forlornly watching the DVD (and wearing far too much make-up for someone who is sitting at home with her sister and a baby), the part where Marco is saying both she and Chloe are beautiful. Rosie answers the phone to Frazer and imparts the news to Carmella that Marco's going away and he's not coming back. Rosie asks if she's going to let him go, just as the DVD reaches the point again where Marco's mentioning the best five words he's heard in his life. Carmella looks torn.
Erinsborough High
Steve's walked Bridget right into school so that she can say goodbye to her school mates. He sees Mr Henderson and marches up to him.
ANGUS: Mr Parker ...
STEVE: Don't you "Mr Parker" me, you creep, what have you been doing with my daughter?
Angus denies that anything's been going on but Steve doesn't believe him and grabs him. Declan tells Rachel she's a coward for standing by and watching. She tries to stop him, but he calls Steve.
DECLAN: Mr Parker, you have the right scumbag, but the wrong girl.
He tells him, in front of what seems like a whole school's worth of extras, that it's Rachel who has the thing with Henderson, not Bridget. Everyone looks shocked, not least of all Angus, who has the distinct look of a man whose career has just come crashing down around him.
