Recap
Rachel announcing she'll be on Video Hits, and telling Karl and Susan she's launching a music career.
Karl worried that Rachel hasn't mentioned Zeke at all.
Libby commenting on Steph's relationship with Greg.
Veronica and Steph arguing over Steph's relationship.
Lassiter's
Greg chases after Steph who has run out of Charlie's, wondering why on earth she's behaving in the way she is. His wife follows him out, and they start to argue before Libby intervenes, and points out that Veronica tried to hit Steph, so she's brought this on herself. Greg patronisingly tells ‘Ronnie' to calm down, and she runs off, upset. Steph mutters a thanks to Libby, but leaves without any resolution to their fighting.
Number 32
Steph and Greg return home, and Steph apologises again for the mess. Greg still thinks that things will settle down, but she's not sure. She points out that it's not easy, walking away from a relationship. Greg decides to go to the gym to clear his head.
Number 28
Susan is trying hard to get Karl to commit to a family dinner that night, to spend some time with Libby and Rachel who are struggling with Zeke's disappearance, but Karl's more interested in checking the status of his flyers, and a map of the area in which Zeke went missing.
SUSAN: I'm just saying I think it would be nice to get everyone together for dinner.
KARL: Yeah, well. Maybe tomorrow.
Number 22
Sam is asleep on the sofa – but not for long. Elle walks in, closely followed by Donna who is singing. Badly. Donna and Elle tell Sam that the fashion parade was cancelled when a fight broke out.
DONNA: Apparently there was a big scrag fight between Steph and that woman doctor and everyone bailed. Fully major. I am spewing I missed it.
Donna tells Elle that she wants her to write an article on Rachel's music career for the Erinsborough News, but Elle wants none of it. So Donna starts to sing badly again until Elle agrees to listen. Elle wonders why this is so important to her friend, and Donna confesses that Didge is Rachel's bestie, which means that she's no-one to Rachel unless she can do something like help her career take off. Elle thinks that's an unhealthy way to have a friendship, but Donna begs her adopted big sister who finally agrees.
Dingoes' Den
Steve is delivering emergency chips to Didge when Rachel comes in, on the phone to Donna – who wants her to turn up at a studio later on that day. Rachel agrees. Greg arrives at the gym and runs into Toadie who says he'll progress with his client's divorce later that week. Greg asks Toadie to put that on hold for the moment – his wife is a good person and he doesn't want to hurt her.
Studio
Rachel is dressed up and having some shots done by Lucas, whilst Elle, Donna and Didge stand by, watching. The shoot is going too well, and Lucas is worried that she's not really into it.
DIDGE: You look great.
RACHEL: You think so?
DONNA: Are you blind? She looks like she just drank a cup of warm pus.
DIDGE: Donna!
RACHEL: Ew.
Donna comments that Rachel's not focusing, and tells her to look at the camera as if she thinks it's really hot, as if she really wants it.
DONNA: This is all about one thing. (pause) You know what that is, right?
RACHEL: Yes!
Donna passes her more encouraging words before the shoot starts again and Rachel gets into it this time.
Lassiter's
Outside Harold's Store, Karl is freaking out because the poster he put up of Zeke has been ripped off the wall; Lou promises he'll replace it and make sure it stays up. Toad and Steph are listening in, sympathising with Karl not being able to cope with his son missing. Their conversation moves to the topic of Greg, and Toadie wants Steph to make sure that Greg's marriage is over. She walks off.
Number 32
Cuddled up on the sofa, Greg and Steph are interrupted by a knock on the door from Veronica – she needs to speak with her husband. She apologises for freezing their bank accounts, then tearfully asks to speak with him privately. They go off to the kitchen, whilst Steph listens from the lounge. Veronica begs him for another chance, but he refuses her.
After Ronnie leaves, Steph questions Greg's commitment to Ronnie, and tells him to go. She doesn't believe his marriage over.
Studio
Rachel is in a new outfit, and more pictures are being taken. Lucas is pleased with the shots, and they call Rach over to look. She looks at the pictures, but in her mind is replaying the words she last left with Zeke – shouting at him for cold-shouldering Susan, and his new idiot friends.
Rachel says she hates the photos – she wants to do some more, and the brat in her demands that they do them right now.
DONNA: Woah-oah. Who invited Mariah?
Lucas is ready for a new shoot, but Rachel's mind is still on her brother.
Dingoes' Den
Rachel comes in for a pump class, when she runs into Donna who has the paper with her friend's photos in it. Donna thinks the shots are great, but Didge is concerned – she tells Rach it's not too late to pull out of all of this if she wants to.
BRIDGET: Okay, Rachel, don't get mad but this isn't you.
DONNA: Well who is it then?
BRIDGET: She knows what I mean. Don't you, Rachel? (pause) Well fine. Be mad at me again. I don't care.
RACHEL: I asked for you to support me on this, to be my friend. I want this.
BRIDGET: Well I don't think you do. And sometimes being a friend means having the guts to tell you that I think you're making a huge mistake.
Lassiter's
Karl and Susan are looking at the photos of their daughter in the paper, and Karl is fuming that Rachel has gone ahead with this kind of publicity. Lucas and Sam walk past, and Susan lays into Lucas for taking the pictures. Susan thinks it's exploitation, and that they took advantage of her vulnerability. Sam points out that Rachel wanted to do it.
SUSAN: (emotional) She's seventeen and her brother is missing. Do you really think she knows what she wants?
KARL: Come on. Come on. Let's go.
Karl leads Susan away, shaking his head at Sam and Lucas.
Charlie's
Steph walks in to see Rebecca on the laptop, and apologises for her behaviour the day before. Becca accepts, and shows Steph the figures for the hospital fundraiser – it's not good. She asks Steph to show her how to run the place as well as her.
Cut to later and Steph is explaining how to minimise staff and maximise stock. They think that perhaps the fashion parade can be rescheduled for a couple of weeks' time – preferably without a scrag fight this time! Steph checks her phone for messages from Greg, but there are none.
REBECCA: Do you want to talk about it or do you want me to distract you?
STEPH: Distract me, please.
REBECCA: Right.
STEPH: Fine.
REBECCA: Definitely. Before, you said that I could write off the perishables. And I know that I nodded. But I actually had no idea what you were talking about. So – do you want to go through that again?
Steph laughs.
Number 22
Lucas is on the phone, turning down a job that he's being offered. He finishes the call and tells Elle that he's worried he's upset Karl and Susan, but Elle reminds him they're going through a rough time over Zeke, and this isn't Lucas' fault.
She asks him what job he turned down, and he says it was a photography job – he's too busy at the garage.
ELLE: But you love taking photos.
LUCAS: I love playing with engines, too.
ELLE: Yeah, but who wants to work in a garage?
Insulted, Lucas walks off. Elle thinks that photography is better career choice for him as he doesn't have to get his hands dirty.
LUCAS: I'm happy with who I am. Are you?
ELLE: Yeah, of course I am.
LUCAS: Not looking to trade up?
ELLE: No. Don't be stupid.
LUCAS: For you, princess, I'll try not to be.
Upset, Lucas leaves.
Ramsay Street
Outside Number 32 Steph gets home. Greg is waiting on the pathway – he did go home to Ronnie, but he hated it and spent the night on the couch. He thought about Steph all night, about them being a couple. He wants Steph back.
She throws her arms around him, whilst Libby and Dan watch on, concerned.
Number 28
Susan is folding up some of the flyers when Karl comes over and thanks her for her help in putting them up today. They share a sad smile.
Bridget comes to the door to speak to Susan – she's worried about Rachel and wants to tell the Kennedys about it. Rachel comes running in after her friends, begging her not to say anything to her parents. Karl and Susan tell Rachel they're not happy about the photos and whilst Karl is angry, Susan feels like she's let Rachel down, allowing her to go ahead with her music career without supervision.
Didge interrupts – she really is concerned about Rachel and expresses this to Susan...but Karl yells at them to be quiet. The police are on the phone with news of Zeke.
SUSAN: What? What? What is it?
KARL: They think they've found Zeke.
SUSAN: Oh!
KARL: We have to go and identify him.
SUSAN: Identify him??!
KARL: He's in hospital. He's in a critical condition.
