Recap
Elle walking in on Lucas and Steph have a ‘mates' hug.
Lucas and Elle quarrelling over the hug then Lucas explaining himself.
The teens getting approval from Didge's parents for the memory board they did.
Lucas telling Elle that there was a problem with the steering in the Parker's car and that Steph was the one who did the work but adding that he backs her work 100%.
Steph tearfully telling Declan that she was the one who serviced the car.
Okay new titles time again following the recent departures. We start with the photo booth shots of Zeke and Ringo; Declan, Zeke and Ringo; a new shot of Donna and Sunny revealing themselves from behind two masks; then Steph and Libby. Toadie and Callum as gangsters followed by Karl/Susan and Zeke/Sunny in the dinghies. Back to the photo booth for Karl and Susan; new shots of - Harry and Ringo playing ukuleles, Elle and Lucas, Donna and Kate pretending to sing! The Ramsay kids replace the shot of the Parker family followed by Steph and Charlie at the beach huts. Its Callum and Sophie this time on the fairground horses followed by the normal photo booth shot of Callum and Toadie then Lou by himself. Next its Dan, Libby and Ben playing cricket followed by the group BBQ shot of Paul, Steph, Charlie, Lou, Rebecca, Lucas and Elle. Back to the photo booth with a new shot of Paul and Rebecca followed by the normal Dan and Lucas one as the 4 photo's begin to fall – Karl and Susan; Paul and Elle; Toadie; Rebecca and Declan. Phew!
Ramsay Street
A very angry Declan makes his way towards Steph's house and in front of her and some of the other RSR's, smashes in the side window of her car! He then smashes one of the passenger ones too before Lucas and Paul finally manage to restrain him. It's only Rebecca calling his name as she holds a crying India that finally calms him down and he takes his daughter from his mum.
Lucas approaches the stunned Steph to try and comfort her but she wants to be left alone.
Harold's Store
The teens are lamenting their departed friend and Ringo has the knives out already for Steph but Zeke defends his housemate, saying that Declan was out of line.
RINGO: Bridget's dead. How do you think he feels?
ZEKE: (angrily) I know exactly how he feels.
Ringo admits that getting angry at someone might make him feel better and Sunny adds that she'd feel better if she understood why.
DONNA: You know what the weird thing is? Not knowing how to act like what do we say, what do we meant to do? How are things ever meant to be normal again?
RINGO: I just don't understand how she can be here one minute and gone the next.
Zeke suggests that they should be angry at the pulmonary embolism that killed Didge and sounding like he is quoting House MD, adds “stuff happens and then you die.” This causes the teens to start squabbling before Sunny puts an end to it when she admits that they are all acting strange because they feel lost. She then admits that she's been crying herself to sleep at night which causes Donna to admit that she hasn't cried at all. Ringo reassures her that is okay because everyone is different.
Over Lior's ‘Lost in you' we have a musical montage beginning with Zeke doing his Zeke does his martial arts movements by Lassiters Lake, Declan placing Didge's stethoscope over a photo of her at #26, and at #28 Ringo making a $100 donation in Didge's name to MSF (Medecins Sans Frontieres) and Sunny researching pulmonary embolism's on the internet. Back in #26, Declan makes up a bottle for Indy (and he's made it up wrong too by UK baby formula!) before feeding her. In #22 Donna tries to cry but can't and finally the song finishes as we reach #32 with Steph sitting alone trying to ignore her mobile phone as Lucas calls.
Number 22
Lucas is concerned at Steph not answering her phone but Elle reminds him that Steph wanted to be alone. He admits that he is feeling responsible too (given he is Steph's boss) but Elle tells him not to be and sarcastically suggests that they should invite Steph for dinner. “I don't think she'd be hungry” is Lucas' instinctive reply before he realises what he's said before quickly apologising.
Elle then mentions that things will get tough for Steph tomorrow when the papers are out and he isn't amused at Elle doing a story especially as the official report isn't out although she claims it's in the public interest.
LUCAS: Why would you do that?
ELLE: Lucas it's my job.
LUCAS: No, no, no, no, no. Do not hide behind your job.
Elle then admits the real reason - that she is trying to protect him so that the garage doesn't get the blame. Lucas is aghast at her admission and questions if she is doing this to get back at Steph.
ELLE: I am not.
LUCAS: Do not use me as an excuse to crucify her.
Harold's Store
Elle is going through the story she is going to run about Steph's role in Didge's death when Paul comes into the store. He asks that she spike the story and refutes her suggestion that is so he can run it instead when tells her that the Erinsborough News knows about the police report but aren't going to run the story, instead they are doing a tribute to Didge instead. Elle just thinks that it's so he can do the story after but Paul explains that it isn't about scooping her or settling old scores, he's doing it for Declan (at Rebecca's request).
ELLE: Yes Declan wants Steph out to dry.
PAUL: Yes well it's not always good to get what we want. (Changing tact) Oh come on darling, you saw what he was like.
ELLE: Yes I don't blame him.
PAUL: You know right now Declan needs to concentrate on being the best father he can. That story is not going too help him do that.
Elle is visibly beginning to crumble but she tells him that her editor is due soon and is expecting a story.
PAUL: He's a good kid Elle, he's been hurt enough already.
Commercial break later and Elle is explaining to Josh her editor that the story about the police report has fallen through and suggests instead copying what Paul is intending to do. Disappointedly he leaves after reluctantly agreeing to Elle's new storyline suggestion but gives her a deadline for it.
Josh and Lucas trade places and he asks if Josh liked the story. “Happy's not the word” she replies but Lucas wants to hear no more and walks away from her to join Paul at the counter. Paul then explains to him that Elle isn't running the story, he persuaded her not to, “so you owe me one” he adds.
Paul then catches Karl as he enters the store to have a word on Rebecca's behalf about Declan. Karl mentions that he heard what happened with Steph.
PAUL: Yes, look its killing me to do this but I need your help Karl.
Number 26
As requested, Karl is round to talk to Declan but he isn't in the mood to talk either with Karl or the suggested grief counsellor. While Karl sits in the livingroom, Rebecca has a go at her son in the kitchen for being out of control.
DECLAN: What you going to get the doctor to give me a pill? Make it all better?
REBECCA: I don't blame you for being angry but you have India to think of.
DECLAN: I was thinking of her.
REBECCA: (not believing him) Oh really? Is that what you were doing outside was it, smashing up Steph's windows?
DECLAN: A couple of broken windows for a mum's life isn't much of a trade but it's the best I could have done.
Harold's Store
Sunny looks at the MSF envelope and Ringo explains the reasons behind the donation. They then start discussing what Sunny's been researching on the internet – the golden hour, and how that if you don't get treatment within the first hour of an accident your chances of surviving decrease. Zeke overhears them and isn't amused at Sunny dissecting everything.
ZEKE: Breaking car windows I can understand but picking over the pieces like this.
Sunny tries to explain she wasn't doing that but Zeke immediately jumps in to angrily tell her that Didge wasn't a science experiment. This causes Sunny to immediately close her laptop and walk out of the store.
Number 28
Karl tries to interest Sunny in a cup of green tea as his subtle way of getting her to chat when she returns home. He explains that there is nothing wrong with crying and that everyone will grieve in their own way. “Even if it's the weird way” she asks him and he reassures her that it's unlikely to be that weird, so she tells him about how she's been coping (by doing the research) and he offers to lend her his medical textbooks so she can learn more.
Karl conveniently decides to go get those textbooks when Zeke arrives, to allow them to talk. Zeke apologises for hurting Sunny with his comments and asks that he makes it up to her when she explains that she doesn't like the other side of Zeke. “I just need time to be alone” is her response which isn't what he wanted to hear.
Number 22
Donna admits to Elle that she hasn't cried yet over Didge when Elle arrived home and spotted the teary movies Donna was watching/had lined up to watch.
DONNA: What kind of friend does that make me?
Elle reminds her that she was Didge's best friend but Donna just feels like a rubbery robotic freak. “Just because you haven't cried doesn't mean you don't feel anything” Elle reminds her.
DONNA: So I'm not a freak?
Elle shakes her head to say no, and then admits that she is closer to being a freak “after I just pulled a story for a boyfriend that's most likely to leave me anyway.” Donna wants her to expand on that but Elle doesn't.
DONNA: Maybe we both need to watch Bambi.
Elle agrees then heads off to the kitchen to find some chocolate as Lucas creeps into the house with a big bunch of flowers for Elle as a thanks for killing the story.
LUCAS: I know you're just trying to protect me and I kind of shot my mouth off, so…
He then gives Elle the flowers and gets a kiss and a hug back as thanks and Donna resumes watching the weepy films.
Number 32
Steph is still ignoring all calls, so Zeke answers her mobile and tells the caller that she'll call him back (it's about a car).
ZEKE: So you are just going to hide out here?
STEPH: I suppose I could go back to work and put a few more lives at risk.
ZEKE: Hey, what happened wasn't your fault. Declan just wants someone to get angry at okay, it won't help you.
Steph decides to go to her room and Zeke calls out that hiding away won't help either but it falls on deaf ears.
Ramsay Street (next day)
Paul compliments Elle on her new front page story about Didge as he looks at the Star and Elle remarks that she hopes the News doesn't have a front page story about Steph. “Don't you trust your old man?” he asks at which point Elle scoffs before replying “not for a second”.
Declan approaches Paul to have a go at him for not printing the article about who is responsible. “Have you even bothered to read what's in there” he asks.
DECLAN: I don't need to read about Didge, she was my wife.
PAUL: Exactly and do you think that she'd prefer a story full of resentment?
Rebecca wants them all to go inside and have breakfast when an angry Zeke approaches to ask Declan if smashing her (Steph's) car wasn't enough for him.
ZEKE: Look I know you are hurting but enough's enough. You made your point.
Rebecca wants to know what he is going on about, so Zeke drags Declan (with the others following) over towards Steph's driveway which has ‘GUILTY' in BIG red letters. “I didn't do it” he protests as Steph begins to try and remove it.
DECLAN: I'm not saying she doesn't deserve it but I didn't do it.
Declan then walks away and Rebecca goes over to comfort a teary Steph and lend a hand.
And as the credits roll Mickey, Didge, Miranda and Steve's names have been removed.
