Recap
Greg saying once he's finished his contract he'll be back to be with Steph
Bridget trying on a wedding dress looking and feeling angry and uncomfortable
Bridget trying on another dress and buying it
The bank crest being the same as the crest on the key
Elle opening a box using that key to find the Last Will and Testament of Helen Daniels, Elle's great-grandmother.
Number 22
Lucas tells Elle to read out the will again.
ELLE: I bequeath all of my investments to my daughter Anne and her husband, Jim Robinson. In the even of their deaths, these are to be divided equally between her children.
LUCAS: Including your dad.
ELLE: Any future offspring, including the unfortunate child that Anne is burying at the date of this will should also be included. Dad's never mentioned anything about this.
Lucas reckons Elle's great-grandmother had an affair with Max Ramsay. Lucas is simply making a joke out of this whereas Elle's in detective mode and taking this seriously, trying to figure out who the unfortunate child is. Lucas comments that it's very Victorian and wonders what happened to them. Elle wonders if Paul knows about it.
Number 26
Declan is setting the table as Bridget comments that Miranda hates the napkins he's using. Declan wonders why she has them if she hates them and should say so. Bridget thinks Steve gave them to her ad she doesn't want to hurt his feelings. Declan wants to use half of the ones she does like and half the ones she doesn't like but Bridget says to keep them all the same. Declan says she's turning into Miranda which Bridget takes to offence. Bridget points out that they're table napkins and an annoyed Declan slams them on the table and says he's not even hungry and goes for a walk. Bridget calls him to ask when he's coming back but the only answer she gets is the front door slamming.
Harold's Store
Declan's sitting alone with his half eaten cake as Steph says he if were a girl, he'd have eaten it by now. Steph asks if he wants to talk about it but Declan says it's simple: he wants to get married but she doesn't.
STEPH: Maybe you talk to much.
DECLAN: I'm a guy. How can I talk too much?
Steph points out that they don't get any space from each other. They live together, go to school together and are having a baby together. Steph offers her place for him to stay for space and she promises to not make him talk. Declan accepts.
Number 26/Number32
Bridget is lying on the sofa, looking glum as Steve and Miranda watch on , looking sad for her as she stares at the ceiling.
Declan just finishes making his best on the sofa and Steph leaves him be. He lies down with Harvey for company, also looking gloomy.
Bridget is also with doggy company as she strokes Jake but still down in the dumps. She looks at her phone hoping Declan's going to call.
Back to number 32 and Declan's staring up at the ceiling, still stroking Harvey and still miserable about Bridget. He sits up to take off his jacket and throws it on the other sofa.
Bridget picks up another one of Declan's jackets and smells it for comfort. She puts it on and hugs it.
Declan is looking at a photo of Bridget on his phone miserably and eventually flips the phone shut.
From that you'd think they're both dead or something…
Morning in Number 32 and Steph asks Declan if he's had any sleep, which he hasn't had my much of. Steph offers again whenever he needs time out. Declan asks why she's looking so dressed up but Steph says she feels like a change. Libby walks in and say she looks great but she thinks Steph should have her hair up.
STEPH: My hairs ok!
LIBBY: Girlfriend! You need serious hair for an assignment like this!
Steph worries she looks too try-hard but Libby says she doesn't. Steph is calling for Charlie as Declan leaves. Lucas appears and Steph reminds him that she's not coming in today, Greg's back. Lucas obviously doesn't remember and Libby urges on how wonderful she looks.
LUCAS: How long's he been away?
STEPH: 3 months
LUCAS: Then you could be wearing a sack.
LIBBY: But she looks beautiful. Greg's going to take one look at you and fall in love all over again.
Steph calls Charlie one last time to come out and carries on talking to Libby, fretting that there might not be anything there. Charlie runs in and gives his mum a big hug. Steph hugs him tight and when he steps away Charlie has revealed he has yogurt all over his face which has now wiped onto Stephs pants.
LIBBY: Does Greg like yogurt?
Charlie looks very menacing indeed.
Erinsborough High
Dan is getting the kids to set the space in the classroom as Donna and Sunny are told that Declan hasn't called. Bridget worries she pushed him too far. Donna said that if he loves you he shouldn't be making her do something she doesn't want to. Zeke sits with them and tells Didge not to worry, he'll come around. Declan arrives for rehearsal, much to Bridget's reassurance, however he glares across to her in disagreement and sits with Ringo on the other side of the room. Dan starts with the rehearsal. He introduces Toadie, who has brought his own deck chair in the hope it'll feel like a real movie set. Dan says to start at scene 4, where Gerard senses Stella doesn't want to marry him, a bit like a couple we know as Declan and Bridget share tense looks of how they can relate to the scene being rehearsed, which is just being switched around by the actors.
DONNA: Why does a piece of paper mean so much to you?
ZEKE: Because it shows me that you love me.
DONNA: I'm sorry, I can't say that next line.
DAN: Why not?
DONNA: I don't think my character would say that.
DAN: Just try it, please, Donna.
DONNA: But it's wrong.
DAN: Ok, keep going. The reason that she says it might become clear later on.
DONNA: I do love you Gerard, but I don't know if I can give you what you want. Satisfied?
DAN: And then Gerard walks out, so can we see that please Zeke?
ZEKE: See, I don't get that. Why doesn't he stay and convince her?
TOADIE: No. No. Because at this stage, this is where Gerard realises that he and Stella will never want the same thing.
ZEKE: So he just gives up?
TOADIE: No, he doesn't want to look like a fool.
ZEKE: Ok, but wouldn't it be better if they just talked about it?
Declan gets fed up at this point and leaves. Dan tries to get him to stay but has no luck and tells them to start scene 4 again with no interruptions. Toadie sneaks out to catch up with Declan. And he's the play write! Tut, tut.
General Store.
Toadie tries to talk to Declan as he's ordering but Declan wants him to drop it. Toadie apologizes if the play freaked him out but Declan denies it did. He thinks it's a waste of time, wont help with exams and he doesn't want to know what happened with him and Steph which soon leans to Bridget.
DECLAN: Bridget can go it alone if she really wants to, that's fine by me.
TOADIE: The problem is, is that you're having a child. So whether or not you guys are together, Bridget's going to be in your life for the next 20 odd years.
DECLAN: So I should put up with whatever she dishes out? You did with Steph.
TOADIE: No I decided worked through the hurt and humiliation and look at me now, eh?!
DECLAN: So I should write a play?
Toadie advises to take it out of the footie field or to do what he needs to do. Not to take it out on Bridget as she deserves a lot better than that.
Number 32
Steph is excited about Greg coming back, nervous about the surprise. He said he's bringing.
LIBBY: Maybe he's got you, like, some really awesome present.
STEPH: Yeah, yeah or maybe it's like "Guess what Steph! I'm going back to my wife! Surprise!"
Libby tells her to stop and calm down. There's a knock on the door and guess who? Greg, who's early and Libby goes to take Charlie off so Steph can have her time with Greg. Greg reveals his surprise is that he has a new job - in Melbourne. He wants to be with Steph and he wants it to work.
Erinsborough High
Sunny thinks Donna and Zeke are going to be great in the play and Donna thanks her and adds "Zeke, huh?" Sunny thinks she made it sounds so real but Donna thinks that Stella's a doormat and should do what she wants to do. Sunny replies that she's in love with him and Donna says that because Stella doesn't say want she actually wants and so he gets a stupid idea in his head about how much she loves him and so he leaves her standing at the alter and humiliates the character. Sunny tries to make a positive point on it but Bridget cuts ahead and says that Donna knows what she's talking about as she stood up for herself when Ringo was being a complete jerk. Since when has Ringo not been a jerk? Sunny comments how Bridget stood up for herself but Bridget's not happy about it. Donna makes it clear that Bridget is not going to advocate the doormat approach for happiness.
DONNA: See, the difference with Bridget is that her and Declan are perfect for each other. Unlike me and Beetle-Boy.
BRIDGET: We don't exactly feel perfect right now.
DONNA: You're just testing each other out. Gotta stay strong in what you believe.
SUNNY: When did you get so smart in all this?
DONNA: Easy, I'd just think of what my mum would do and do the opposite.
Bridget stands up ant thanks Donna for realising what she has do to. Donna looks surprised and confused.
Number 22
Lucas gets off the phone and reveals that she can apply for the birth certificates if she wants them but they can only be applied by direct descendant. She can't get the birth certificates she wants. Only spouse or offspring can get them so Paul would have to assign for them. Lucas wants to where his sandwich is and Elle says she put it in for a toastie. Elle thinks they should be looking for a death certificate and they should look for all the female Robinsons who died in Australia from the 1970's as they don't have a first name. Lucas tells her to ask Paul but Elle won't and gives him his toastie. A salad toastie. Yum (!) Lucas isn't too happy about it.
Bridal Boutique
Bridget, Donna and Sunny are looking at the dress Bridget tried on before. Sunny says she looked beautiful in it. The shop assistant approaches them and is surprised but understanding when Bridget says she doesn't want to take the dress. Didge and Sunny leave but Donna finds it difficult to leave the dress and lets out a little whimper before going.
Number 24/Oval
Donna is handing out delicious looking chocolate cake for an emergency and Bridget wants to know why her slice is so big. Donna says it's the right size for this situation and Sunny says she's carrying for two. Personally I wouldn't argue but Bridget's reluctant.
BRIDGET: But I haven't got a fork!
DONNA: Desperate times call for fingers. Come on! You're depriving the baby!
Bridget gives in and starts scoffing.
At the oval, Declan is alone and kicks the football high. He attempts to run after it but gives up and collapses to the floor. Ringo and Zeke are walking up to him and Zeke takes a picture of Declan, who has his eyes closed so he can't see. Declan notices they're there and Ringo says that footie doesn't work by yourself. Ringo helps him up.
Bridget is happily eating, with chocolate on her face. Sunny is about to tell her so but Donna says not to and asks if it's helping but it's not. Donna gets out her phone and starts to take a picture. Bridget objects, trying to shout past the cake in her mouth.
BRIDGET: Not while I'm eating!
DONNA: But you look so pretty.
Bridget's phone bleeps and somehow Sunny knew it was a text from Ringo. He's texted through a picture of Declan yawning and it looks hilarious. Bridget smiles and admits he looks ridiculous.
Declan is laughing at a picture of Bridget with her mouth full of cake. Ringo says that they don't need to get hitched to prove their love. Zeke says to tell her how he feels.
DECLAN: You guys sound like a pair of girls.
They don't even deny it. Declan asks if she got a photo of him. They nod.
DECLAN: Who's idea was that?
RINGO AND ZEKE: Donna!
DECLAN: Go figure.
They head off to fix things with Bridget.
Ramsay Street
The boys turn up as the girls appear out. Bridget and Declan look at each other and then Bridget runs to Declan and hugs him, Donna meanwhile telling her to watch out for Tadpole. Declan is so sorry and she must think that he always walks off when it gets tough. Bridget thinks that he's sick of her never acting like a proper girl. She also says she loves him and he loves her back. Didge randomly asks for a piece of paper and Donna sarcastically replies that she bought her textbook out with her. Didge says to do it by text.
BRIDGET: I Bridget Parker promise to love you forever. To try to understand you even when you're weird. Your turn.
DECLAN: I Declan Napier promise to love you forever and respect how you feel. Even if it's psycho. There's a Y in psycho, right?
ZEKE: It's after the S.
BRIDGET: Spelling doesn't matter!
DECLAN: Well, alright, well I'm done.
BRIDGET: Ok. Ready?
DECLAN: Yeah.
BRIDGET AND DECLAN: Send!
They kiss for a long as Sunny says it's so 2009 and Donna thinks it's the most romantic thing she's ever seen. The boys feel no emotion whatsoever apart from maybe hunger.
Charlie's
Toadie says he tracked down the lawyer who drafted Elle's grandmother's will but he died years ago. Elle's still weary of asking Paul and asks Elle not to mention anything to him.
We move onto Steph and Libby, who's eager to hear about Steph's surprise. Steph spills all and Libby is so happy for her. Steph says he's looking for a place unless she asks him to move in. Steph doesn't know if it's too fast but Libby says there's only one way to find out.
Number 32
Greg is playing with Charlie and has got him a new train set. Greg says that he's found some places that look good online and Steph says he should just stay. Greg says he'll find somewhere soon but Steph thinks that he should live with her. Greg accepts happily. Greg then moves to the point of children and Charlie is happy on the subject of a brother. Greg says Veronica never wanted them but that's what Greg's always wanted. Steph looks overwhelmed and surprised.
