Steve is cleaning up after Audrey's operation, and Miranda comes in, wanting to know what's going on after their earlier kiss. Steve tells his wife that he loves her, but he can't forget everything that happened. Miranda can't believe that this is revenge for Dean, and walks out.
Declan is working out whilst Didge sits eating an ice cream – a survival ice cream. She needs it because her parents are fighting. Declan wonders what's going on, and Bridget tells him that they keep hurting each other, and she can't bear it. She knows her dad's a softie under it all, and she's worried he's not coping; especially after last time when he wasn't coping and hit a mirror. She can't ignore her dad falling apart, and she can't handle that and the baby coming at the same time.
Karl puts the dishwasher on, and Dan and Libby can't believe he's done that, only three quarters full on World Environment Day. Political Shout Out. Zeke, perched on the sofa, complains that Karl took a very long shower this morning, too. Dahl appears at Zeke's shoulder.
Sunny comes into the room chatting on the phone to her parents. Her parents are proud of the school play, but want her to focus on her studying. Libby thinks that parents are all the same, the world over. Karl smirks and walks out.
With everyone else gone, Zeke wonders if Sunny's parents know about them, but they clearly don't. She's going to save the news until she sees them in person. Zeke moves in to kiss her, but Karl reappears and Sunny legs it. Karl wonders over to Zeke to give him the lecture. He says that Susan has filled him in, and he knows that Zeke and Sunny are sensible young adults who will be responsible.
KARL: But I think Sunny might be a bit uncomfortable with the PDAs.
ZEKE: The PDAs?
KARL: Yes, Public Displays of Affection.
ZEKE: I know what they mean. I just didn't think that you would.
KARL: I was young once, you know, when the brontosaurus still roamed the Earth. You just might like to rethink your approach.
ZEKE: Well a lot of things have changed since the brontosaurus.
KARL: No no no! Treating a woman like a queen has never gone out of fashion.
Zeke laughs, then apologises. He thinks the conversation is weird!
Lucas tells Bec that they didn't find Paul, but they know he's looking for the Ramsay kids' father. Lucas and Rebecca realise it means he's probably not guilty. Lucas leaves and Steve walks in, demanding a drink. He's not in a good place and needs a beer. Rebecca's concerned.
The General Store
Sunny looks around the store to see couples kissing when Zeke walks in. He tries to be affectionate but she's not keen and he doesn't read the signals very well. He pulls out a chair for her at the table, offers her a drink, and a glass. All overcome, Sunny smiles, surprised.
Sophie has found her fairy wings in her suitcase that her mum made, and wants to put them on. Kate thinks she might be too old for them, so tries encouraging her to put them on the wall of her bedroom instead. Sophie's having none of it. Dan comes to the door and wants to see Harry; Kate says it's not a good time. Sophie interrupts – maybe Dan can put her wings on for her.
Dan kindly obliges, and Sophie makes a face at Kate before running off. Kate is annoyed with Dan for undermining her: Sophie's ten years old now. Dan suggests perhaps it's Sophie's way of coping. Leaving a message for Harry with Kate, Dan leaves, and Kate leans against the door, clearly not coping at all.
A game of cricket between Libby, Steph, Toadie, Lucas and their families is happening. Toadie is delivering a bad commentary, when Sophie walks out with her fairy wings. The ball is hit over towards her, and she picks it up, quietly. Ben asks for the ball back, but Sophie stands there without saying anything or moving. Callum runs over and the boys start to make fun of her fairy wings, laughing at her. Libby forces the boys to apologise, but Sophie tells them that their mum's going to die.
She runs off.
Dan, Libby and Ben are sitting on the sofa at number 24, across from Kate and Sophie. Kate is trying to make Sophie apologise for what she said, and Libby makes Ben apologise for making fun of her. Ben insists he wants that ball back and goes on about it. Kate insists that Sophie give the ball back and asks her to go to her room, which Sophie does.
Before leaving, Dan gives Kate his counsellor card and offers to speak to Sophie if she'd like.
Karl is trying to complete a crossword at the kitchen bench whilst Zeke eats at the table. Zeke gives him an answer he's looking for, and Karl's impressed. Zeke hangs around – he'd like to ask the brontosaurus for some advice.
KARL: Ah, you've decided I'm not so out of touch after all.
ZEKE: No, no, I'm just gathering information.
KARL: Right, right. You just can't admit I'm right. I understand.
Zeke wants to know EVERYTHING. Here commenceth the lesson.
Footpaths: always walk on the road side to protect her from passing traffic. Zeke wonders if he should lay down a cloak for her to walk on over puddles.
Telephone conversations: to call and when not to call...
Dan has come over to see Sophie again – he's brought her something. It's a journal to welcome her to Ramsay Street, and another apology for Ben and Callum's rudeness earlier. She can write down everything she thinks of, and it has a lock so it's totally private. Sophie isn't sure what to write, so Dan suggests she can draw what she'd like to instead. She can draw anything she'd like. Her family, perhaps.
Declan walks in and dumps his gym back on the floor making Miranda jump; he didn't see her lying sadly on the sofa.
MIRANDA: I don't mind the occasional gym bag.
DECLAN: Yeah, right. I'm really sorry, that lives in my room.
He picks the bag up.
MIRANDA: I'm not that hard to get on with, am I?
DECLAN: No, no! You're cool. Mostly.
DECLAN: Yeah. I mean, you're a mum...
Miranda wonders if she drove Steve away, but Declan doesn't think he's right person to be talking to about this. Miranda apologises, obviously upset. Declan takes a moment, then tells her that the most important thing he's learnt from being with Bridget is to listen. Stand your ground if you need to, but listen first. And if that fails, grovelling is a good alternative.
Sophie's drawing a picture of Kate in her new diary. Dan smiles at her drawing, and particularly likes the hair. Sophie retorts that drawing hair is easy, as it's just lots of lines.
DAN: What colour was your mum's hair?
Kate can't believe the lack of subtlety, and rolls her eyes, whilst Sophie answers the question. Dan wonders if Sophie might draw her mum, but Sophie insists that her mum's not in their family anymore; she's gone.
Libby comes over with Ben's cricket bat. He was looking for it, and found it in Kate's front garden, all beaten up. Kate shouts at Sophie, who runs off.

Miranda comes in and asks after Audrey who Steve says is doing well. Miranda's crying, but Steve ignores that, and Miranda admits she's not very good at listening.
STEVE: Well maybe I just don't have much to say.
MIRANDA: Maybe I should have given you more space for talking.
STEVE: That's some fancy counsellor you've been seeing, is it?
MIRANDA: I was told that if listening fails, I should grovel.
STEVE: Grovel. Is that a professional term?
Steve's not in a forgiving mood, so a tearful Miranda begs him for a chance to grovel for forgiveness. She didn't really think there was anything going on with Rebecca, and she's really sorry she hurt him, and he's kind and loving a loyal and he always has been. And she wouldn't take her back, either, if she was him.
MIRANDA: But then, you're a better man than me.
STEVE: Well, I hope so.
MIRANDA: Tell me I can do, I'll do anything...
Unfortunately Declan interrupts. Miranda points out that this is her fancy counsellor.
STEVE: You told her to grovel??
STEVE: Good call.
MIRANDA: Is it?
STEVE: Yeah, it is.
Zeke is being particularly attentive to Sunny, who is suspicious of his motives. He has made her a drink, and all the fuss is making her confused. Trying hard:
ZEKE: Hey, is it true in Korean that when you say goodbye to someone you say ‘go in peace'?
SUNNY: Nnnooooo. Actually it just means ‘hello'.
ZEKE: (muttering) Damn the internet...
Sunny's parents call again, and she proceeds to have a conversation in Korean. Zeke wants her to tell them about him and their relationship, and to say hello from him. She clearly puts his name into a sentence, but you get the impression it's nothing to do with her relationship with him. Karl comes in, and Zeke goes over to his dad.
ZEKE: So, if the brontosaurus have all the answers, how come they died off?
KARL: I don't know. Look it up on the internet.
Sunny finishes her phone call quietly, which doesn't seem to go well.
Sophie is up a tree and has dropped her diary. She asks Rebecca to pass it up to her, but tells her not to look. Rebecca likes Sophie's wings, and Soph tells her that they were made by her mum.
REBECCA: Is that how you got up there?
SOPHIE: No! I can't fly. I climbed.
Rebecca wonders if Soph writes stories or songs, and learns that she draws. Sophie tells her that they're private drawings, but she's done one of a cat that got stuck in a house fire and she can see that one if she likes. Rebecca looks at that drawing, and comments that it's very good. Her eyes can't help but flick to the drawing below where she sees a picture of a woman, and man and a car.
Rebecca asks Sophie about the picture. She says it's a car accident, and the woman in the picture is her mum.
Rebecca has brought Sophie home, where a furious Kate is waiting, worried about where her sister has been. Sophie goes to her room. Rebecca comments that Sophie is a sweetheart, and wonders if Kate has seen the pictures that Sophie has done.
Rebecca tentatively suggests that Sophie might have seen the accident; she's drawing things she couldn't possibly have known if she hadn't seen them. Rebecca goes on to say that she might know the truth about Paul...which probably wasn't the best way to take the conversation. Kate tells Rebecca to get out in no uncertain terms.
