Ringo getting into trouble while swimming in the sea.
Rebecca catching Ollie and Elle pashing.
Elle is trying to explain the situation but Rebecca knows what she saw and a flustered Elle bolts from the house.
Rebecca isn't amused at Ollie's behaviour and calls him a “pants man” after his numerous recent conquests and asks that he doesn't hurt Elle because she is fond of the lassie and her father.
The cameras pan out over the water but there is no sign of Ringo.
The General Store
Declan is trying to boast about his recent guitar conquests but Didge isn't in the mood for socialising or listening.
Frazer and Prue come in looking for Ringo but Didge explains that she hasn't seen him since earlier and Declan replies that they will let them know if and when they see Ringo.
Stepping aside, Prue says that they should have been keeping a better eye on Ringo and Fraz thinks she means him but Prue corrects him by saying that she meant both of them, “we've both let him down.”
Rachel is phoning around looking for Ringo too with no joy. She is still feeling guilty for telling Susan but after chatting (and filling in the background to Libby) her step-sister reassures her that she made the right decision. Rachel asks if Lib can talk to Dan since he was counselling Ringo.
Ollie tries to explain to his mum his relationship with Elle but Rebecca points out all the bad things and that it may jeopardise his custody hearing too although given that the phantom lawnmower starts up he could apply for custody of it! He tells his mum that this relationship feels right as long as it's slowly given time to develop.
REBECCA: I hope you're right, because if you're not then a lot of people are going to get hurt.
Rachel is on the hunt for Ringo but Didge doesn't think there is any reason to get worried and Declan wants to know why she is concerned about him but of course Rachel can't say.
DECLAN: Is Ringo in trouble?
RACHEL: Maybe. I don't know.
Didge and Rachel have a mini-argument over Ringo's secret and Rachel decides its best to leave and doesn't reply when Didge asks she keeps them informed.
Steph remarks to Elle that she won't find a solution at the bottom of the cup of coffee she's been staring at for the last 15 minutes.
ELLE: What do you do when you've let someone down who you really care about?
STEPH: Ah jeez, when you find the answer to that one can you let me know.
Sam moans to Dan about the problems she is having at her hotel with discourteous guests so he invites her to spend more nights at his place.
Libby walks into the bar catching the aftermath of their kiss but keeps her cool and asks if they've seen Ringo after explaining the background. Dan is immediately worried as the lad hasn't been chatting to him lately and leaves with Libby after apologising to Sam.
Ooh conveniently, Heather and Riley are at the same beach as Ringo. As they make their way to buy some ice-creams after coming out of the water they spot a bag… I wonder whose bag that could be.
Rosie still doesn't think there is anything to worry about despite Frazer, Prue and the now arrived Dan and Libby thinking otherwise. She's forced to change her mind though when Frazer receives a call on Ringo's phone but as you may have guessed it isn't Ringo but Riley who found the phone in the bag on the beach with no sign of Ringo.
Steve wants to know why his daughter is arguing with Rachel about Ringo. She explains that she inadvertently hurt him after what she said at The General Store. Steve tries to reassure her won't be the case but their chat is interrupted by a knock on the door, its Rachel updating her on the news about Ringo.
RACHEL: They found Ringo's bag on the beach, they're scared he might have drowned.
The police are now searching for Ringo and Frazer wants to get involved too but Dan tells him to look after his mum. Libby and Sam offer their services too and he suggests they both search for him along the beach.
Elle sneaks home trying to avoid seeing Rebecca but Ollie tells her it is safe. He tries to get her to talk about them having a relationship and when Elle isn't exactly jumping into getting back together he asks if that is because he is a pants man. Like Rebecca, Elle starts to list his conquests and he points out that on this occasion he kissed her.
OLLIE: So what does that make you a pants woman?
Elle takes offence at his joke and leaves him stewing at what he said.
More Ramsay Street Residents have arrived and join in the search. Sam and Libby return with Ringo's goggles that they found and Dan goes with them so they can show him where they were found.
Steve comes over to tell Ringo's family that the police are going to call off the search until tomorrow because a big storm is predicted.
Rebecca is surprised to see a coy Elle track her down and want to chat. Elle apologises for what she saw and Rebecca jokes that if they were a teenager she could just ground them!
REBECCA: But it's not what I like is it? It's about what the two of you want and how you're going to deal with it.
Elle admits that it would be easier without Ollie's baggage because she'd give it a go otherwise. She also mentions what Rebecca called Ollie and Rebecca explains that she'd never forgive him if he hurt her and people can change… just like her father!
Elle is sitting thinking when Ollie comes home to invite her out to dinner but she turns it down and stuns him by saying that she doesn't deserve him (and we don't deserve to hear the phantom lawnmower that has just started up in the background!) Ollie reassures her that they can take things slowly but Elle's mind is made up, she wants to quit while they are ahead this time.
Libby comes round to enlist Sam's help in continuing the Ramsay Street tradition of providing meals for those in need. The ladies decide with the ingredients they have available to make spag bol and have a heart to heart at the same time.
Sam apologises for not being at her dinner party after confessing she wasn't ill. Lib accepts it but reiterates that she won't be 3rd woman because she's been there and knows how it feels.
Ollie catches up with his mum and isn't amused at her after her chat with Elle. Rebecca assures him that she didn't scare Elle off; she must have come to that conclusion all by herself. She asks him what Elle said to him.
OLLIE: Something about not deserting me. I think she's just trying to softening it up, she doesn't think I can change.
REBECCA: Oh Oliver I'm so sorry.
OLLIE: What do you think? Do you think I can change?
REBECCA: I don't know, what do you think?
OLLIE: I think I'm condemned to a meaningless life as a pants man. Oh well, lucky I didn't fall in love with her again.
Despite the police calling of their search, Didge has roped Steve into continuing their search for Ringo even though he is bemused by her determination to keep looking. Didge opens up and says that she pushed Ringo away when he was trying to get close only to realise that it was too late when she changed her mind – Ringo thought she was rejecting him again. Steve reassures his daughter that she wasn't to blame and Didge suddenly spots him and calls out “Ringo” as they run towards where he is lying unconscious on the beach.
