Callum starts hanging around with the bullies at school.
Zeke pleads not guilty and is bundled into the back of a police van.
Zeke is back in court, he apologises to the judge for starting an argument; admitting it was disrespectful to both the judge and the court. Susan is upset to hear Zeke continue to stand by his plea of not- guilty. The judge admits, that he was going to let Zeke off the charges, but Zeke hasn't given him the option. Susan decides it's time to step in.
SUSAN: I have raised Zeke since he was 13, and he's an exceptionally bright young man.
JUDGE: We haven't seen much evidence of that here today.
SUSAN: He's also good and kind, and above all highly principled; and yes, he did do the wrong thing, but it came from a good place.
The judge points out that it doesn't matter why he did it; he committed trespass and damaged private property. When asked, Zeke declares he won't be making the same mistake again.
SUSAN: Zeke has an incredibly bright future your worship and I'm begging you please don't take that away from him.
Zeke has arrived home with just a 6 month good behaviour bond. Callum is disappointed that he won't be able to come and visit him in gaol, but Zeke is relieved. He admits he's okay about his community service order. Susan informs her son that Karl is pleased for him, but he will be having words when he gets home. Zeke thanks Susan for standing up for him in court.
SUSAN: Well, someone had to.
ZEKE: I was never trying to disappoint you
SUSAN: Zeke, you could never disappoint me. You know that.
Susan heads off to prep dinner, leaving Zeke to smooth things over with Libby. Libby admits she was proud of how he stood up for himself today, but advises that he makes his next mission a little more constructive.
Kate is thrilled to receive a text from Donna to say she is coming home. Zeke and Libby arrive; Zeke isn't quite so convinced by Libby's praise anymore, given she's family and has to be on his side. Kate rushes over to tell them about Donna; Zeke isn't that bothered, but Libby agrees it's wonderful news. Sophie wants to know where Callum is, but he's headed off to school already, which is where Soph should be, so Kate sends her on her way.
Lucas comes by with the paper; Zeke has made the front cover, 'Bunny Napper Freed'. Zeke isn't impressed; he feels it just makes a joke out of what he was trying to do. Some young ladies over the far side of the store giggle when they notice it's Zeke on the paper.
Callum is hanging out with Dean and his mates, talking about the cricket. Sophie comes over to join in, as she watched the game too, but the lads aren't interested. When Dean points out it's 'men's cricket', Sophie reminds him he's not a man yet. Dean sulks and pulls Sophie's chair away from where she was about to sit down. Sophie just tells him he's a loser.
After class, Callum stops to see what Sophie has for lunch, but she tells him to go and play with his new friends, who arrive on cue. Dean asks Callum to join them playing football, but Susan arrives with Zeke's old dorky lunchbox for him. The boys run off.
Susan asks Callum about Sophie, but Callum claims it's just a girl thing. Susan suggests he spend his lunch with Sophie, but he's spending his lunch with the guys. She thinks it's good he's making new friends, but reminds him not to forget about his old friends either, and leaves him pondering in the corridor about which way to go.
Susan is just as shocked as Zeke about the newspaper article, but admits she knew nothing about it as she was in court with him all day. She goes to ring Paul, but Libby reminds her that he'll just twist what she says into another new story. Libby reckons they should just leave it, as his friends will know the truth, but Zeke is determined to fight the principle.
Pirate Net HQ
Zeke arrives and asks the DJ if he could take over an hour early for his slot, in exchange for an hour the next day. Mel tells Zeke to stop; she needs to have a word with him. She has to suspend him because of the court case. Zeke explains he wants to tell his side of the story, but Mel explains that their main subscriber is not pleased with Zeke's behaviour and they can't afford to lose him.
ZEKE: But you can afford to lose me?
A disappointed Zeke doesn't wait for a reply, and heads straight off.
Kate and Lucas are shocked that Zeke has been suspended, but he points out if the station can't afford to pay it's bills it'll have to be shut down. Susan returns and informs them that Paul declares he had nothing to do with the printing of the story. Seeing Zeke looking glum, she asks her son how he's doing.
ZEKE: Working at Pirate Net was supposed to be my future. What am I supposed to do now?
Kate points out that there are plenty of other options, but Zeke liked feeling as though he was a part of something at the station. Lucas suggests he finds another sponsor, but Zeke isn't sure he'd be able to find someone now that he's got a reputation through the newspaper. Kate reckons she and Donna might be able to come up with something to help him out.
Dean and his mates throw Sophie's pencil case around till Callum ends up catching it. He passes it back to Sophie, informing the other lads that she's a friend. Dean mocks him and warns him to watch out.
Callum comes to join Sophie, who is sat alone in a classroom having her lunch. Sophie however isn't interested after the way he treated her. He tries to apologise, claiming that Dean is going to be onto him now, but Sophie has no sympathy for him. Cal tries to suggest going for a milkshake after school, but Sophie declines. He heads off, leaving her alone once more.
Sophie sits in the corner of the store, hiding behind her novel as Dean and his gang arrive. She overhears as Dean describes his plan of humiliating Callum in front of everyone at the store. On cue, Callum appears and Dean invites him to join them. Kate spots Sophie hiding and is surprised she's not with Callum.
SOPHIE: Callum's a jerk.
KATE: (I) thought you two were friends.
SOPHIE: Yeah, (we're) supposed to be.
Sophie reckons Callum deserves what the boys have got planned. Kate informs her sister she's off to meet Donna, who might have some ideas on school politics.
Lucas wanders past as Kate sits and waits for Donna to arrive. The bus draws up, but there is no sign of Donna. Instead Kate receives an apology message; Donna couldn't face up to coming home. Kate limps off home.
As Callum is placing their milkshake order with Jumilla, Dean sneaks up behind him. Having heard their plan to pull his trousers down, Sophie sneaks up on Dean and plays the prank on him, before he has a chance to play it on Callum. Dean is annoyed, but Callum thanks Sophie. She says nothing; and instead heads back to her book.
Kate arrives back; annoyed that Donna isn't replying her calls. Zeke reckons it's pretty characteristic of Donna, and continues to make a few sarky comments but Lucas points out he isn't helping. Kate is still determined to help Zeke return to Pirate Net, and although Zeke isn't keen, Lucas suggests he lets her do it.
Sophie yells at Harry to turn his music down, as Callum appears. He's brought Rocky over to see her. Sophie puts her book down to give Rocky a hug, but warns Cal that this doesn't make them friends just yet.
CALLUM: Just say, we started hanging out again. You could watch my back, and I could watch yours.
SOPHIE: Dean's going to come after us you know.
They joke about the fact that Cal will need to wear to pairs of pants (or trousers if you're in the UK) from now on. Sophie agrees to walk him home.
Kate is helping Zeke out with a new look, by styling his hair for him, complete with hairdryer, while Lucas is on standby with the camera.
ZEKE: I feel ridiculous.
LUCAS: Yeah, and you look it.
Zeke can't believe he let them talk him into this, but Lucas jokes that Donna would've been ten times worse. Susan comes through with the new article as Lucas continues to take some photos, but Kate still feels there is something missing. At that moment, Callum and Sophie return with Rocky. Kate persuades Zeke to kneel on the floor so that they can take a photo of him and the dogs. Zeke complains about feeling stupid, but is made to sit put as Lucas continues to snap away.
Next morning, Zeke's latest article has made the front cover, this time with the heading 'Lost Boy Finds Just Cause'. Libby teases him about how handsome he looks next to the dogs.
LIBBY: If I didn't know you, I'd invest in you.
ZEKE: Oh, I guess I am pretty irresistible.
LIBBY: And a legend in your own lunchtime.
ZEKE: I try.
Zeke thanks Susan for their successful outcome with the article, as Libby opens the door to Mel. Zeke is glad she's seen the article, but Mel points out how it completely undermines the fact that they are supposed to be an underground radio station. She reveals to Zeke that she would've given him his job back eventually, but this latest article now means she has to fire him. Mel heads off leaving Zeke in shock.
Pirate Net HQ
Kate has come down to the station to help explain to Mel so Zeke can get his job back. He is shocked to see the police there, and Mel reveals that his latest newspaper article means that the owners of the warehouse (who were letting them use it for free) are evicting them. Zeke offers to help find a new location, but Mel points out they have no money to pay for one.
MEL: Nobody is going to invest in us. Nobody is going to let us stay rent free, not after the trouble you've caused.
ZEKE: There must be something we can do.
MEL: No. Pirate Net is finished and it's all because of you.
