Recap
Nicola telling Callum he's an amazing young man.
Steve warning Nicola to get over him or get out of Erinsborough.
Miranda and Steve hearing that Nicola's car has been found abandoned.
Miranda and Steve discovering Nicola in a bad way in the woods.
Dan failing to make things up to Libby.
Number 30
Toadie is having fun on the wii when Dan gets there. Toad can't believe that Dan has managed to make things worse. Toadie resents the implication that being so up-front with Libby was his idea and suggests that he blames Richard Gere instead.
Number 32
Steph encourages Libby to deal with what's happened. She's brought straighteners and is all ready to do a make-over.
Number 30
Having failed to explain himself to Libby in person, Dan has chosen to write a letter instead, but he can't even work out how to start it. Cue musically-accompanied montage of an ever more frustrated Dan, unable to express himself properly.
Number 32
Steph tries to stop Libby from discussing Dan by throwing ice cream at her, and a food fight starts.
Number 30
Dan is still rubbish at letter-writing.
Number 32
The girls are now covered in ice cream.
Number 30
It's the morning and Toadie finds Dan asleep on the sofa, surrounded by discarded balls of paper. Toadie picks one up, but Dan snatches it back. Toadie thinks that an unrhyming poem (a haiku, Dan informs him) is perhaps not going to solve his problems. Dan has a new idea, which he's thought through, but he's interrupted by Callum who is nagging Toadie to take him to visit Bronte. Toadie insists that they visit Nicola first.
Erinsborough Hospital
Bridget has arrived with Declan, bringing a box of familiar things for Nicola. Miranda asks what happened to the cake, and Bridget has to pretend that she and Rachel ate it. Miranda isn't impressed. Steve sends Dec and Didge off to get some coffees. Steve asks Miranda what they'll do when Nicola gets better, just as her eyes begin to flicker open. Miranda promises Steve that she won't let Nicola hurt them again.
Miranda calls Karl in because Nicola's hand moved, but he can't find any evidence of it. Karl is unable to tell Miranda whether there'll be any damage when Nicola wakes up. At that moment, Nicola stirs and Miranda explains to her what has happened. Steve says hi, but Nicola doesn't recognise him.
Number 30
Toadie and Callum return home. Toadie is keen to talk about Callum's hate of hospitals, but Callum simply denies that he's afraid. Toadie admits that he's afraid of cats, which Callum thinks is totally wussy. He lets Callum know that being afraid of hospitals is reasonable. Callum tells Toad that his mum went into hospital and came out worse, his granddad went in and never came out and his grandma went in and now she can't talk. Toadie can't promise that Nicola will be good as new when she comes out, but he assures Callum that hospital is the best place for her to be. Callum thinks that she'll be missing Bronte and that the hospital should let pets in.
Erinsborough Hospital
Nicola gazes at a photo of her and Miranda when they were little, as Miranda watches through the window. Karl warns them to expect a period of disorientation and that amnesia is a possible result of her trauma, but that it might not last long. Bridget and Declan arrive back just as Karl is recalling Susan's experience with amnesia. Miranda doesn't like the chance that Nicola's memory won't return. Nicola shouts for Miranda ("Panda" - a childhood nickname).
Later, Bridget discusses with Declan that it's very "convenient" that Nicola should have forgotten all the family and the trouble that she's caused. Declan can't believe that she would fake it, but Bridget reckons that it's exactly the kind of stunt she'd pull. Declan asks Didge what she's going to do.
Number 32
Dan is on the doorstep once again, in another attempt to make amends with Libby. Libby tells Steph to let him in. Dan hands Libby one of Lucas' photos of her.
LIBBY: Why this?
DAN: I wanted to give you something beautiful. And I wanted to show you that I'm past my problem with you and Lucas. I was ... I was going to hang it on my wall actually, but the truth is, I'll always be a bit jealous. But not so much that it will ever get in the way of me loving you, Lib. Nothing could ever do that. Anyhoo, that's why I came over, so give me a call if you need a hand putting it up.
Libby watches him leave.
Ramsay Street
Lucas grabs Dan on the street and interrogates him about buying his art. Lucas can't believe that he'd want something on his walls that would make him want to hurl. Dan refuses Lucas's offer to buy it back for double the price.
LUCAS: I like that work a lot and I don't want it to end up on some sacrificial bonfire.
DAN: Oh yeah that's right, I'd spent good money on a photo to burn it in my back yard. You might be the photographer, Lucas, but Libby's the subject. Destroying a photo of her -
LUCAS: You've given it to her! You needed to make some big magnanimous gesture, but you needed my photo to do it. How does that make you feel?
Dan insists that Lucas has no power over him.
Number 32
Steph and Lib look at the photo and Steph comments that it wouldn't have been an easy decision to buy it and bring it over and apologises. Libby accepts that Steph's a fan of Dan's now, but says that she isn't. Steph thinks that the only reason Libby keeps getting hurt is that she's too worried about how Dan feels, what with all the stuff with Sam and now with Lucas.
STEPH: You've always worried that he's not loved you enough and now he's trying to show you that he does.
Libby thinks that he doesn't love her so much that he'd put the picture up on his wall, but Steph suggests that he loves her too much for that - it represents her being with another guy. Libby sighs and picks up the painting.
LIBBY: I'm going to have a long hard look at myself.
Erinsborough Hospital
Miranda explains to Nicola the circumstances of her accident. Nicola sympathises with Donna. She asks if there had been a problem that had led to her being so far from their home. Steve divulges that there was a misunderstanding, but nothing more. Karl pops his head round the door and suggests that they take things slowly.
Outside Nicola's room, Karl says that she'll probably be disorientated for a while yet.
BRIDGET: How hard would it be to fake amnesia?
Miranda is shocked, but Bridget says it's what they're all thinking. Karl manages to escape the family drama, but Declan does not. Miranda is angry that her family is being so unsupportive and demands that Nicola has her family's support.
Ramsay Street
Callum sits with Bronte and talks to her about how he hopes she will be able to go to the hospital. He warns her about the machines and the smells. Dan and Toadie leave the house. Dan, seeing Libby, suggests that he sees them there.
Libby approaches Dan with the photo. She tells him that it represents to her the brief time she spent with Lucas, and then proceeds to throw it in the dustbin.
LIBBY: You know, I was only ever with Lucas because I thought I couldn't have you. I wanted to be with you before Sam came along, and I wanted to be with you before Lucas came along. So where are we now? Do we still want each other?
DAN: Yeah. I mean, I want you, Lib.
LIBBY: And I want you. How much more time are we going to waste?!
They kiss.
Erinsborough Hospital
Miranda has finished explaining the Parker family. Bridget reminds her that there's another Parker - Riley.
Karl shifts the family out in order to run some tests on Nicola. Miranda says they'll be back as soon as they can and Nicola looks forward to hearing more. Karl has to leave to answer a page, and with just Bridget and Nicola in the room, Didge suggest that they talk.
Didge informs Nicola that she was adopted with Riley. Bridget tells Nic that she really liked Riley, but even with a photo, Nic says that she can't remember him. She agrees that he's cute and apologises to Bridget for not remembering her.
Erinsborough Hospital
Miranda thanks Toadie and Callum for coming. I have no idea how, but Callum has managed to smuggle Bronte in. Steve says that the hospital has put it down as "pet therapy". Miranda explains to Toadie about Nicola's amnesia. Steve suggests that Callum just says hi. However, before they can deal with the situation sensitively, Bronte runs in to see Nicola. She jumps up and tries to get rid of him, demanding that she's got out of there. Callum runs out and Toadie chases him. A distressed Nicola worries to Miranda that all these people hate her, including Bridget and Steve.
NICOLA: You're the only one I can trust.
