Harold telling Kate he doesn't want her to organise his open road trip for him.
Carmella and Oliver sharing a kiss after Marco died.
Didge meeting Josh at the pool.
Josh and Didge kissing on a date.
Susan telling Rachel that she went to see Angus at prison, and she thinks that on his release he should have dinner with them.
Dan, Libby, Ty, Ringo and Declan are playing cricket. Harold and Lou watch, whilst Elle appears to be waiting for someone. Libby catches Dan out, and cheers – she points out that street cricket is the toughest game there is.
Lou comments to Harry that he's going to miss Mickey, and Harold is sure that Mickey will come back once Kirsten is better, although they don't know how long that will be.
A photographer comes out of number 22, and Elle quickly pushes him out of sight.
Harold wonders why we always say goodbye to the people we care for – specifically, Kate. He knows he can't take it back this time.
A taxi pulls up with Susan, Rachel and Angus. Rach is annoyed that today of all days everyone decides to play street cricket. Elle and the photographer run out the house to interview Rachel and Angus; Susan retorts that she thought Elle would have known better. Rachel pulls Angus into a kiss and tells Elle to put that in her paper.
Once inside, Angus apologises to Susan for putting her through that. Rachel wishes they could put everything behind them, but Angus tells her it will take time – and they'll soon see how in love they are. Bleurch.
RACH: I haven't scared you off?
ANGUS: Not for a second.
SUSAN: (unfooled) Well, you've been invited for dinner, I suppose I'd better feed you.
Ringo and Susan go to feed the chooks, whilst Angus pulls Rach in for a cuddle. Zeke arrives home with a policewoman – he brought her here so that they'd know where to find Angus whilst he's on parole.
The General Store
Carmella is almost asleep, whilst standing up. Elle comes in and sees a pan boiling over on the stove; she has no idea how to turn it down. Carmella apologises for being away with the fairies, but it's her day off and they're understaffed. Elle wonders if she'll have to pull rank and send Carm home.
ELLE: Come on, Carm. Do you really think Marco would want to see you run yourself into the ground like this?
In the store, Oliver asks Sienna if Carmella's around; Sienna says no, but then hears Carmella yelling in the kitchen that she'll go home after the dinner rush. Oliver tells Sienna never trust a roster, and goes to the kitchen where he tells Carmella he's here to take her away.
He doesn't see Elle standing at the other side of the kitchen, and apologises. Elle hopes Oliver can talk some sense into his ex.
Back at the Kennedys', Detective Laura Chisholm introduces herself to Susan and checks that she's happy to have him in her home. Susan is, and the Laura suggests that sometimes ex-prisoners lean on the wrong people for help, put pressure on them. Rachel categorically states that the only people putting pressure on her are her family.
Laura offers help to Angus but he declines. Rachel apologises to Laura that her brother has wasted her time. Laura reminds Angus to see his Corrections Officer. The policewoman leaves, and Rachel puts on her brat face, laying into Zeke. Susan splits them up and tells Rachel to help her with dinner, whilst the boys lay the table.
Angus tells Zeke that eventually he'll see that he's not the bad guy here.
ZEKE: You're not just some older guy, Mr Henderson. You are my sister's teacher, and mine.
Later that evening, the family and Angus are eating dinner, and boy – is it awkward. Angus thanks Susan for dinner, and Libby asks how his flat is. Zeke suggests they could put some bars on the windows to make him feel at home. Susan gives Zeke her EvilEye™, and Angus admits that it will be hard – he hasn't been alone in a long time.
Libby asks about Angus' plans.
ANGUS: First of all I have to get a job.
ZEKE: Teaching's out of the question.
The EvilEye™ from Susan again, who quickly suggests more vegetables.
Zeke tells Angus that he wouldn't give him a job cleaning toilets, and despite Rachel's annoyance, Angus agrees – he's pretty well known round here, so he might have to get a job out of town. This idea pleases Susan and horrifies Rachel – who suddenly has an idea and flies out of the house, despite the fact that Angus doesn't want to be left alone with her mum.
In Declan's bedroom (sans Declan), Rachel wonders if her friend could put a good word in for him at the gym. Bridget points out that he has a criminal record, and Rachel wonders if perhaps she could just not mention that...
DIDGE: Do you remember what happened the last time that I lied for you?
DIDGE: My whole family's falling apart, Rachel. My mum and dad are sleeping in different houses and I don't even know when I'm going to see my brother again. And I'm not going to lie for you, or your boyfriend.
Angus wonders where Rachel is. Susan says she doesn't know; Rachel has a mind of her own – most of the time.
ANGUS: Look, I know you think I'm a bad influence, but she was the one who wrote to me.
SUSAN: And you wrote back.
ANGUS: I wish you could see what's in my heart.
SUSAN: Oh, please. If you really loved Rachel you'd be out of that door and you'd never come back.
ANGUS: Rachel feels it too. Would you want to put her through that?
SUSAN: I'm well aware of her feelings. You think you'd be in this house if I wasn't? But let's be honest, Angus, Zeke's right. You are a weak man who abused his position of trust and now you're using Rachel as a lifeline.
ANGUS: Then why the dinner invitation?
SUSAN: Because sooner or later she'll see you for who you are. And until then, I can be polite.
Rachel returns home, pleased to see her mum and Angus bonding, but upset that she had a fight with Didge. Susan goes to comfort her, but Angus quickly moves in and pulls her into a hug.
He shoots Susan a very SmugSmile™. She gives him the EvilEye™.
I know who I'd put a bet on if looks could kill.
In Declan's bedroom (Declan now present), Didge wonders why she also gets sucked in by Rachel. Declan tells his girl that even though Rach is a princess, Didge knows that deep down she cares for her. They kiss, and Bec invades the room with a camp bed, clearly just looking for a way to check up on them.
Plus, she'd like to set some ground rules for them, given that she's putting a lot of trust in them. Bridget suggests she go brush her teeth leaving mum and son to chat. Declan tells Rebecca that he and Didge have already agreed the ground rules:
1: No kissing after midnight
2: No hugs lasting longer than thirty seconds
3: Only wear their ugliest pyjamas
He'll also draw a white line straight down the room if it makes his mum feel better. It doesn't. All serious, Bec tells Dec to sit down.
REBECCA: I know how the two of you feel about each other, and I think it's great. But I also know that Bridget is very vulnerable at the moment, and I don't want her to do anything that she might feel bad about...
DECLAN: Mum, I would never...
REBECCA: No, I know that, I know that...
DECLAN: Mum, I swear I'll do the right thing...
REBECCA: Okay. Good. And you will also sleep on the camp bed.
Oliver is playing with Chloe who's loving being thrown in the air! Carm takes her daughter to get her dressed after her bath.
Didge comes off the phone and tells Declan that her rehab therapist wants her to go and do a talk about her recovery to a group of new patients. She thinks it's ridiculous, given that she's on crutches.
Rebecca comes home with lots of shopping and notes Oliver on the couch. She's surprised to see him, and tells him not to stir Chloe and Carmella up as they need a peaceful night. Suitably chastised, Oliver nods.
Cut to later, and upstairs in Declan's room, Bridget and Dec are in separate beds. Rebecca stands by the door, but clearly doesn't want to leave them in there alone. She eventually goes, and Didge gets a text from Miranda telling her to sleep well, and that she loves her. Declan reminds her that Bridget still loves her mum, despite how she feels.
Bridget admits that she doesn't want to do the rehab talk because she doesn't like talking about herself; Declan disagrees. He remembers her first day and her happily standing in the class telling them who she was. She can't believe he remembers it.
Didge admits that hurting her foot has brought the whole accident back. She's also feeling lonely in her bed, but Declan refuses to move over; he promised his mum he'd stay in the camp bed. They agree to hold hands instead! Aw. Cuteness.
With her brat face on again, Rachel tells Susan she must have said something to Angus to make him leave so suddenly. Susan reiterates that she was pleasant to him, and she's behind her daughter on this.
RACH: Susan, we're a team! It doesn't make sense to back one and not the other!!!
SUSAN: Don't push me on this, Rachel. I've done more than a lot of other parents would've.
RACH: You don't think I know that! I have kept my word to you and I have told you exactly when I'm seeing him!
SUSAN: Yes. And now I would like to see you behave as if you're still at school.
Rachel rolls her eyes and her brat face gets brattier.
Susan tells her there are other things in the world than Angus, and Rachel shakes her head at her mother's obvious stupidity and blindness.
Someone hit Rachel over the head with a cricket bat, please.
Oliver is bouncing Chloe, as Carm sleeps on the sofa. He sits down, and puts his arm around her. She nuzzles into him, and he kisses her on the head.
Ten bucks says they both just lurved filming this scene.
Susan and Rebecca are saying goodbye to Harry – he has no particular travel plans other than going up to see Sky and Kerry. Lou comes out, too, and wonders if he'll take Tazzle with him! Apparently she misses him when he's away. Harry starts to get sentimental, but Lou stops him – he knows he'll see him again soon enough.
Rebecca wonders how Miranda is; Susan says she called before, but Randa said she wanted some space.
Just as Harold's leaving, Kate turns up. She apologises – her last two husbands always expected her to do everything, and so she went overboard. Harold is thrilled, and they agree to go together – and they kiss. Bec, Susie and Lou cheer and clap in the background!
Didge tells Declan that after the accident the last thing she wanted was someone giving her a pep talk. So Dec encourages her to tell her story as it is – say how tough it was, that she's still recovering and is still clumsy. Bridget wants to know when Declan got so clever.
He leaves to go to school, and promises to save her a seat. She thanks him for being so nice.
DEC: You'll ruin my reputation. (walks away) Come on. Bad boy walking.
As he leaves, Josh wheels himself around the corner, and they're both quite pleased to see each other.
Ringo's asking Rach for help with some homework, but she hasn't done it, even though it's due first period. Anyway, she's missing school this morning. She grabs the paper, as she needs to take it to Angus with his breakfast. Zeke can't believe that she's missing school and pushing her friends and family away all for a creep who's going to dump her as soon as he gets bored.
RACH: That creep went to jail for me.
ZEKE: He went to jail because he broke the law.
Zeke tells his sister he won't pick up the pieces when she comes crashing down to earth. He walks off, and Rachel thanks Ringo for supporting her. He tells that although he keeps his opinions to himself, he doesn't agree with what she's doing.
RINGO: You're hurting your family, Rach, and now you're blowing off school. I just wonder how much you're willing to lose for this guy.
RACH: I don't have time for this.
Walking to Angus' flat, Rach is talking on the phone, telling him she's just outside with his breakfast. As she approaches the house, she sees the word ‘PERV' painted on the window outside, and begs him on the phone not to leave the house.
Too late – he comes out. He sees the graffiti, as do some people who are wandering past with a newspaper that has a picture of the two lovebirds on the front.
Dum dum dum!
