Number 28
Libby and Susan sit on the sofa together, and Libby tells her mum that this is a really generous offer. Susan seems really proud that she could do this for her daughter, and admits that Karl isn't sure her body can handle it. But she's taken mediCallum advice and it should all be fine. Susan is insistent she can do this, and she wants to do it – she wants Libby to be happy. Although I do rather get the impression that Susan's quite enjoying the thought of being pregnant again...after all, she always wanted another child of her own...
Libby has to go as Dan is waiting, so she hugs her mother goodbye. Susan smiles like a little child in a sweet shop, waiting to be rewarded.
LIBBY: You are amazing. You really are. Thank you. Thank you so much.
She pulls away.
LIBBY: But we'll find another way.
Barely looking her mum in the eye, she walks off as Susan looks utterly crushed. Karl comes in and can instantly see something's wrong; he wants to know what Libby wanted. Holding back tears, Susan says it was nothing important.
Charlie's
Dan and Lib are talking about Susan's offer. They wonder if using Susan is more weird than using a stranger. She'll be cheaper, and involved in the baby's life anyway...but it's her mum. Dan wonders about the MS, but Libby isn't sure. It's certainly weirding her out a little.
Lassiter's Lake
Sophie, Harry and Kate stand by the lake, and Sophie wonders if her mum would have been here when she was little. Kate explains that Jill didn't grow up here, before checking that they're all ready.
She scatters Jill's ashes into the lake and tells her mum she loves her. Sophie does the same, and they both throw rose petals in afterwards. Sophie apologises for not being able to stop Jill's accident, but Kate reassures her that it's not her fault.
KATE: We're gonna be alright.
HARRY: How do you know?
KATE: We are.
HARRY: But how do you know?
SOPHIE: Stop it!
Sophie runs off, and Kate angrily turns to Harry.
KATE: She saw it happen. She needs us, okay, now get it together.
Kate walks off, leaving Harry sad and alone at the lake.
Number 24
Elle arrives with a basket of fine foods for them. Kate is scouring the paper for jobs, and tells Elle that she scattered her mum's ashes earlier. Elle sympathises; she lost her brother a couple of years ago.
Elle tries to thank Kate for letting Sophie give evidence, but Kate brushes it off. Elle also tries to ask Kate back to work because Lou's not coping on his own. Kate asks for some time to think about it, so Elle gives her until the end of the day.
ELLE: Cute cardie, by the way.
KATE: It was mum's.
ELLE: Well. She had very good taste.
KATE: Used to smell like her perfume, too.
ELLE: It's faded, huh?
KATE: Mrs Kennedy washed it.
Harold's Store
Lou is run off his feet, and Toadie is waiting for a drink.
TOADIE: Should I be growing my own coffee beans, mate?
Toad and Callum have been waiting for ages, and Lou says that the customers are all complaining. He thinks his bad luck streak has hit again.
CALLUM: Can we be bothered waiting?
TOADIE: Well, we could always do the housework, it's our weekend to do it.
CALLUM: We can wait.
TOADIE: Hmm.
Number 28
Susan in alone, on the phone, telling a doctor that she won't need another appointment as she's given up on the surrogacy. Karl walks in and hears her, seeing the disappointment on her face.
KARL: So you've really let this go?
SUSAN: Well, if no-one wants me to do it what can I do?
She sounds bitter and upset. Karl explains that he just cares about her and Libby, and doesn't think Lib could take any more setbacks. Susan neatly tells him that it's not an issue anymore so he can relax.
Harold's Store
Steph and Lucas are having a drink together at the store and Steph establishes that Lucas has no idea how Elle feels about her dad coming back, nor about how she ran the paper article on him.
STEPH: Man! You need boyfriend lessons!
Lassiter's Lake
Lucas has gotten Elle out to the lake on the pretence that he has a story for the paper. Instead, he presents her with a thoughtful picnic – although one gets the impression that Elle would have been much more impressed with a nice restaurant. She thinks the picnic idea is ‘sweet'. Things get worse.
LUCAS: I told Steph this was a bad idea.
ELLE: Steph...?
LUCAS: Well, she thought I should do something nice for you after everything you've been through.
ELLE: Right. So, um, you couldn't come up with something like this for yourself?
LUCAS: Yeah, I could...! I just...I thought you were fine. Are you fine?
ELLE: About what?
LUCAS: All the stuff with your dad and what you...did...to......him...
ELLE: I think so.
Elle is glad it's over and no-one seems to be holding grudges. She doesn't like being asked questions, so tells Lucas to stop.
Harold's Store
Toadie and Callum give their coffee and milkshake the thumbs down, and demand another one. Lou takes the stuff from their table, but drops it as he bends over in pain with his back.
Lucky for him, Kate is here to save the day, and says she's coming back to work – as long as she can pop off early and pick up Sophie from an appointment. Toadie and Callum exchange glances.
Dingoes' Den
Harry is boxing with Dan holding up the pads. I cannot tell you HOW BAD his technique is (and Dan's for that matter). But hey, the kid's grieving. Apparently. Harry is swinging the punches wildly, and Dan tells him finally to stop.
DAN: Don't let your problems control you, mate.
Harry throws down the gloves and stalks off.
Harold's Store
Callum is asking lots of awkward questions about where Sophie is, so Kate admits that she's at an appointment with a psychologist. Lou comes in from the kitchen, cross.
LOU: My buns are ruined!
TOADIE: Heyhey!
LOU: Don't even think it. (to Kate) I thought you were my good luck charm.
KATE: I've got nothing to do with your buns, Lou.
TOADIE: Yeah, leave Kate out of it, she wouldn't go anywhere near your buns.
CALLUM: No, I've heard they've got cracks in them.
Toad and Callum high five.
Harry comes in to find Kate working, and is upset that she's working ultimately for Elle. He yells that she's not his mum, so she yells back that he has to stop acting like a child. I think the poor boy needs a big hug.
Harry sweeps lots of products off the counter before stropping off again and, without explanation, there is a cacophony of exclamatory voices...where there are actually only two other people in the shop.
Cut to later where Callum and Toad are helping Kate clean up. Lou comes in – there's a call for Kate. A beautiful woman drops her bag (she doesn't have good taste in bags, either) as she leaves, and Lou picks it up for her. After the woman leaves, Callum wonders how on earth Lou's back didn't just hurt, picking that up. Lou shooes the guys off home, but Callum has a revelation: Kate isn't his good luck charm, Lou is!
CALLUM: When you do nice things, good things happen to you. You just got a tip and your back feels a little better, doesn't it?
Cut to across the store where Susan is picking out some cleaning products to buy. Uh-oh, that's not a good sign. Libby sees her, and asks if she's doing a spring clean. She tries to apologise for last night, but Susan' brushes her off, it's all fine, and they don't need to talk about it.
Kate comes back from the kitchen, worry on her face. Harry has picked up Sophie from the psychologist, and she's concerned because he was so angry when he left the store.
Number 24
Harry brings Sophie home, and he's also bought her a cheap bracelet that she loves. They decide to play a board game, but there's a knock at the door – it's Dan! Sophie tells him she went to see the new doctor today, and it was good. She learnt that everyone gets sad in their own ways, like Kate gets bossy and Harry gets angry.
HARRY: That's enough, Soph.
DAN: And how do you get sad?
SOPHIE: I just get sad.
She picks out a board game for her and Harry to play, and Dan leaves them to it. He finds a box belonging to their mum whilst Sophie sets up the game...and in the box is some of Jill's perfume. Away from Sophie, Harry smells the perfume, alone.
Ramsay Street
Libby is by the Grace Rose, crying. Dan comes over to her, puts an arm around her. He tells her that they can always change their minds about Susan if they want to. They kiss.
Number 28
Karl and Susan are cleaning, and Karl comments on how much dust there was on the paintings. Susan loses it, and explodes that men always have to announce it to the world when they do the tiniest bit of cleaning. Karl would rather go back to the silent treatment.
Libby and Dan come in, and announce that they have been weighing up their options; they'd like to change their minds on the condition that it doesn't affect Susan's health with her MS.
Thrilled, Susan hugs her daughter, and Karl has to go along with it for now.
Cut to later when Libby and Dan are leaving; they agree to keep it all quiet before rushing off in excitement.
KARL: Let me get this straight – you offered to be their surrogate and they say no...and you don't bother to tell me?
SUSAN: I didn't see the point!
KARL: You know how I feel about this. It's not as though I can say I'm against it now, can I?
SUSAN: I have to do this.
KARL: When did we stop being a team?
SUSAN: Well, I don't know Karl. Maybe it was when I was here looking after Libby after she'd had a miscarriage and you were in London visiting your lovechild.
Number 24
Over at the Ramsays, Kate comes home to find Harry has unpacked lots of pieces from the last boxes. He even offers to clean it all up. Kate scolds him for not telling her about picking Sophie up from the doctors.
Kate wonders if Harry's okay, and he says he is – but he's going to go for a walk first. On his way out, he hands Kate the cardie – and she can immediately smell Jill on it. Turning round at the door, Harry smiles at his sister and tells her that he's left Jill's perfume in her room.
Lassiter's Lake
Lucas and Elle are lying down by the lake, talking. Elle actually enjoyed the picnic, and wonders if...but Lucas isn't listening. As Elle drones on, his mind is totally elsewhere.
Harold's Store
Lucas and Steph have agreed to run another poker night, and Elle decides she'd like to join in, which surprises her boyfriend. Elle then drapes herself all over Lucas (clearly in a bid to annoy Steph) and says that Lucas is helping her decorate the house.
However, all the poker and house talk is irrelevant because Lucas has remembered something he was supposed to do, and runs off...
Charlie's
Lucas is standing by the pool table with a scary looking guy, who is accompanied by two other scary looking guys – all of whom could do with going to a gym, and none of whom you'd want to meet in a dark alley. They bet $80 on the game in total, and Lucas starts the game...and he starts very well indeed, which clearly doesn't make Big Guy #1 very happy.
Cut to later where Lucas is finishing off their last game, and wins. He collects the money from the table whilst two of the three guys walk off. Lucas counts his winnings and, walking to the exit, walks past the side exit that we sometimes see. One of the guys pulls him out the side exit quickly, and the third guy leaves the bar after him.
Lucas is gone.
