Miranda and Steve are discussing how they celebrated a past anniversary as they go about their cleaning duties. Miranda stumbles across a note Steve has put up on one of the lockers, asking that she meets him in one of the classrooms and when she goes looking, he's set up an impromptu celebration for them.

Ty and Libby are behaving very awkwardly with each other and she lets him down gently by saying that she is flattered he wants to spend time with her but the timing isn't right for her to get into a relationship. However, she does ask if he can be her friend instead and that there is no need for him to move out.
At the counter, Dan is on the hunt for someone to help Libby with teaching the kids to dance and while Marco is his ideal candidate, he can't help as he is too busy in the store.
Miranda and Steve arrive home to find the mystery woman with a bottle of champers in her hands waiting for them. Turns out that the mystery woman is Nicola, Miranda's sister.

The General Store
Elle is trying to suggest cuts to Marco that they could make to increase their profits but he is against them all. Carmella arrives back from Italy and she is not amused to find that Elle has bought Frazer's share of their business which does make me wonder why Frazer didn't mention that to her when they were in Italy.
Miranda is trying to explain to Steve why she lied to her mum and reassures him that she loved what he did at the school. They are having a mini-argument about her mum when Nicola asks if they want her to leave but they verbally say nothing is wrong and she finally asks what she has been dying to ask - why the blue overalls. Miranda replies that they are the school cleaners and Nicola thinks it's a joke but Miranda reaffirms that they are the cleaners because they need the extra money.
NICOLA: But since when did being a vet put you on the poverty line?
STEVE: Some of us have bills to pay and mothers to impress.
The General Store
Marco is explaining why he took Elle on board but Carmella isn't happy. The two have an argument but Marco reaffirms that he won't cheat on her and did what he thought was best.
CARMELLA: Just remember, I don't trust Elle Robinson no matter how nice she is. Be careful.
He promises and they hug each other before Carmella shows off the expensive clothes she bought in Italy. Carmella asks if he has any more surprises for her and cousin Sienna pops her head through the door saying “just one”.
Libby is shadow dancing when she notices Ty hanging by the door. He volunteers to help if she is cool with them being friends, she is, so they get into practicing mode beginning with the rumba and though the gaps in the window Dan looks on dejectedly.
Miranda finishes explaining to her sister why they are skint and Nicola volunteers to give her money but Miranda rejects it because it is coming from her mum which means she has a hold over her. “Which is only a problem if you care what she thinks,” Nicola points out.
MIRANDA: Look, I've a husband that loves me and two fantastic kids. What am I complaining about?
The kids come home and bond with their aunt although Riley plays things very cool with his aunt until they hug and she whispers to him “I've really missed you.”

Sienna does her best to communicate with Chloe in baby language until thankfully Carmella stops her and asks what she is doing in Erinsborough. Carmella doesn't believe the visiting family story and reminds Sienna that they don't like each other! Finally Sienna comes clean and explains she's having problems at home and needs some time out and more importantly, her mum knows she is in Erinsborough and gives her approval. Carmella relents on the condition that there is no trouble from her and Carmella's day goes from bad to worse when she gets a text message.
MARCO: Who is it?
CARMELLA: It's Elle, she wants a meeting. I haven't even started to unpack. My wooji-wooji cousin's dribbling all over my wooji-wooji baby and I haven't even started to miss Rosie and Frazer and now I have to face down that predatory stick insect. Mind Chloe.
MARCO: Look, I really think I should be at this meeting.
CARMELLA: A jet-lagged Italian thinks some blonde little wasp is moving in on her man. Marco darling you worry too much.
Carmella misses out the pleasantries going straight to the jugular – why is she getting involved in her private live. Elle points out she is only getting involved financially and wants to know why Carmella is suddenly at her like this.
CARMELLA: I think you know.
ELLE: I thought we were well over that.
CARMELLA: What we have is an uneasy ceasefire. We're not friends. I don't like you being in my life.
ELLE: As long as this business makes me money I don't care what you do.
Carmella then storms out and the camera cuts to cousin Sienna who has been watching it all.
Nicola is retelling tales of Miranda dating as a kid to the family and Ringo who have joined them. While everyone finds it funny, Riley has a dead-pan look on his face. Didge enquires how long she'll be staying and Miranda replies saying as long as she wants.
Riley volunteers to clean up and Nicola lends a hand too and when they are alone in the kitchen, Riley asks how long she is really around for. She replies that she is just visiting her family, which Riley isn't buying but their chat is curtailed when Miranda appears hugging them saying that it's good to have her back with the family.
The General Store
Sienna wants the low down on Elle (after watching them) and eventually Carmella spills about Elle sleeping with Chloe's father while they were still together.
SIENNA: Oh my god, you should have thrown a drink in her face.
CARMELLA: Mmm I threw a cake at her once before.
SIENNA: Hey lets do it again!
Carmella rejects that because she is trying to set a better example for Chloe but her mind is soon on other things… her huge credit card bill that was awaiting her return to Australia and how she is going to tell Marco!
It's the middle of the night and Riley has gotten up to get a drink and Nicola surprises him by saying the light coming from the fridge reminds her of candlelight. He spots that she is wearing a shirt of his and she teases him by saying that he is either angry with her or he's got no feeling for her at all. “And I don't believe that,” she follows up with.
NICOLA: Two years and you haven't changed a bit.
RILEY: No, I've changed a lot.
NICOLA: Prove it.
Riley replies “sweet dreams” and goes to head back to his room but pauses after a couple of steps then turns back to where she is standing and begins pashing with her!
