The General Store
Libby comes into the store and sees Dan sitting at a table, and they are a little awkward with each other. Libby says she saw Dan with Donna earlier, at the gym, and he explains that he's trying to convince her to get some counselling. Libby suggests that Donna is fragile at the moment, and is concerned that Donna has a bit of a crush on Dan.
Believing that Libby is saying these things because she still likes him, Dan fights back Donna has had a hard time lately. He wants to help her, and would like Libby to let him do that. He leaves.
The Dingoes Den
Zeke and Ringo are mucking about at the gym with Rachel and Ty, and Didge asks them to keep it down or she might lose her job! Rachel is excited about learning new gym-speak, and she and Zeke playfight, just as Donna walks in, clearly looking for someone. Didge clicks that she's either looking for Ty or Fitzy, and Donna strops off.
Ringo tries to stop her by asking her for coffee later, but she passes, and wanders off. Rachel thinks that Donna's a headcase, but runs out of things to say once she realises there's a pump class starting.
Meanwhile, Fitzy appears in the gym and sees Donna who calls him over to tell him that she's moving schools, and will now come to Erinsborough High. Which means, they can now have that chat.
DONNA: And besides, the teachers are way hotter than at my old school.
Dan tells her that they need to set some ground rules, so she quickly tells him it was a joke, and gets all defensive, yelling that she wanted to talk to him because she thought she could trust him. She strops off, again.
The General Store
Harold is shopping for Carmella again, and is all antsy with Lou about the type of cheese in the shop. Harold admits that he's upset because Kate arrives today, and Sienna says that she doesn't know how Harold lived with Lou for so long.
Lou and Harold join Susan and Libby at a table, and Harold tells them all that he's built things up about himself which aren't quite true.
LOU: Don't tell me: you told her you were a thirty year old body builder.
SUSAN: Oh shush!
Libby tells Harold to ignore Lou, and Harold continues to confess that he's borrowed from stories from Lou's life to make himself sound more interesting!
LOU: You spiced up your repertoire with a few Carpenter classics, didn't you?!
Harold says he told Kate he ran a car yard for a few years because she's a car enthusiast, and so we cut to...
...Harold, Lou, Susan, Zeke and Ringo looking round a computer, teaching Harold different classic cars. A Cobra, a GTHO Falcon, an Aston Martin...I've only heard of the latter.
Oddly, Zeke is wearing something akin to to quote Susan the lowlight of Karl's depression: a v-neck vest thing. He looks granddad-like in it. Very strange indeed.
Anyway, Harold realises that he's never going to learn all these cars, and Susan encourages him to relax and just be himself instead, and to stop pretending he knows this stuff. Lou suggests he learn some bawdy jokes, too, as they're always a hit with the ladies. As Lou walks off, Susan mimes to Harold that those are never a hit, under any circumstances.
Nicola and Toadie are trying to break into Jay's car to find evidence that Steph is in danger. Toadie can't get the door to open.
NICOLA: Oh, come on surely you stole some cars as a teenager?
Toadie pretends to laugh, when Jay approaches, and demands to know exactly what they are doing. They quickly make up a cover story that an old lady in Toadie's office is locked out of her car, and they've been trying to break into the wrong one...
The General Store
Fitzy has called Rachel to the store to talk to her about Donna; he think she needs some peer support right now, and tells her that she's moving to Erinsborough High. Rachel tells Dan that Donna is weird, copying her clothes and hair, but Dan retorts that Donna just wants to be accepted.
RACHEL: Does that not scream nutty to you?
DAN: More like desperate to be accepted.
RACHEL: I'll stick with nutty.
Rachel asks him to speak to someone else about it, and Dan calls her on her attitude...Rachel has been on the outer, made mistakes and been ridiculed for it. So she should be able to see Donna's point of view.
Over at Charlie's, Steph tells Libby that Toadie has put a dampener on their weekend away. Fresh from discovering Toadie was trying to get into his car, Jay suggests that they leave for their weekend away tonight, and employs Ty in front of Steph to work the evening shift and allow her to leave.
Steph goes along with it, leaving Libby heart-warmed, and Ty bemused.
LIBBY: See, that's how a real man does it.
Ty looks at her, sideways.
LIBBY: Oh, no offence.
The General Store
Libby has popped next door and is talking to Rachel about Donna, and encourages her to talk to the girl. Rachel thinks she has too much going on in her life to think about anyone else right now, but Libby sees Donna coming in, and tells Rachel to go for it before running out.
Rachel asks Donna to have a coffee with her, but she refuses. So Rachel asks her why she does all the stuff' she does: the bushfire thing, the non-existent music job...because all those things come back and hurt her. Donna wonders why Rachel pretended to be Ty's girlfriend, and Rachel retorts that he was so freaked out about her stalking him.
Donna asks Rachel if she knows what it's like to walk into a room everyday, and have no-one know that you're there. At that precise moment, Sienna walks up to the girls and comments on Rachel's top. Donna strops off for the third time. It's really rather tiring.
Donna knocks continuously at the door until Dan answers, and pushes her way in, despite Dan suggesting they talk outside. Donna demands to know why he asked Rachel to speak to her, and said it was very embarrassing. Dan apologises, and offers to organise a proper counselling session when she's at her new school. She concedes, and agrees to leave when he says that as a new pupil the counselling has to happen at school; she can't come over to his house like this.
As Dan shows her the door, Libby comes over, and comments to Fitzy about Donna being there. He admits that he's going to counsel Donna, now, and tells Libby that's the end of it.
Toadie and Nicola are looking for Steph, and Ty tells them that Jay's taken her off for a weekend.
TY: (dreamily) He came in here like one of those dudes out of a romance novel and just laid it on her...not that I read those books, or anything...
He tells Toadie they were going to a spa in Gippsland, and Toadie clicks that Jay must feel threatened by them. He also realises that when a control freak feels threatened, they react by taking back the control...
The General Store
Lou is trying to get Harold to relax, but it's not working. Kate arrives and she and Harold embrace. Harold introduces Kate to Lou, who goes to get some tea for them. Kate is pleased that he called her as she was worried she'd scared him off. She's so happy to get to know the real him, and asks Lou what Harold was like as a car salesman. Lou makes up a good patter and lie about Harold, and Kate seems impressed.
Toadie is talking to the police about Jay who aren't interested, as they're apparently understaffed. Nicola doesn't think they have the time to wait.
Jay is packing up with Charlie and Steph.
Toadie decides to rush to Steph's and tell her.
Steph answers the door to Toadie and Nicola who try to tell her what's going on, begging her not to get into the car with Jay. Steph's not interested in listening, and tells them to butt out of her life.
Outside, Toadie continues to beg his ex-fiancee, and Jay puts Charlie in the car. Toadie threatens Jay, whilst Nicola puts the pictures of the woman and kids into Steph's handbag. Steph snatches her bag and tells her friends to back off.
Jay, Steph and Charlie drive off, with Toadie and Nicola watching. Toadie thinks he should race after her but both front tyres on his car have been let down...
Toadie has called the day spa that Ty mentioned, but there's no booking under Jay or Steph's name. Neither he nor Nicola know what to do, and Nicola suddenly admits that she might have done something silly...
The Middle Of Nowhere
Jay pulls up to an old barn in the middle of nowhere which he claims belongs to his parents. Steph thinks it's a lovely surprise, and whilst Jay goes in to turn the electricity generator on. Steph undoes Charlie's belt, and sees the papers in her bag from Nicola. She opens them, reads them, and slowly realises that all is not well...
Jay watches her, from the house, and seems to be clicking that there's something not right with his new girlfriend...
