Paul gives Harry some basketball shoes.
Donna snubs Andrew.
Griffo warns Harry not to show up at the basketball trials.
In the sports hall the teacher asks Harry to shoot some hoops to prove his worth; Griffo continues to intimidate him. Harry gets the first ball in, which displeases Griffo somewhat, teasing him about his hair and calling him ‘Harriet'. How hilarious and threatening. Not. Harry throws again...
Donna and Kate are reviewing the amount of work Donna has coming in with her business.
KATE: So the orders are still coming in?
DONNA: Flooding in. (She thinks) Not really flooding, actually, but not a trickle, you know. Somewhere inbetween. (She thinks again) A stream. They are streaming in.
Kate asks how things are with Andrew, at which Donna shrugs. Kate asks about the others, but at that moment Andrew and Harry come in, and Andrew explains that Harry wanted to come home before he said what happened at the trials. Harry announces that he got in, and Kate is absolutely thrilled for him, as is Andrew, who's being a good friend.
Paul is doing a promotional event for PirateNet, and the Kennedys are impressed. Susan reassures Zeke – he'll be fine getting back into his job, but Zeke's worried about Paul being his new boss! Behind the bar Bec tells her husband she's had ‘the chat' with Donna, and he needs to do the same with Andrew. Paul dismisses it whilst he says hello to his number one DJ, Zeke.
He gives the Ks magnets and badges to promote the radio station, and they're impressed. Donna comes in and says hi, but it rudely ignored by Zeke. She joins Declan at the bar.
There is a big launch event with free food – Paul is surprised that Karl isn't here, but he spoke too soon; Karl is there, chatting to Susan. She asks him if he's okay, as he ignored the free food that went past. Karl explains that it's too early – it's a breakfast launch and he's tired.
In the studio, Zeke is impressed with the new decks, but Melissa is less than impressed, and doesn't trust Paul at all.
Back in the launch area Karl has helped himself to a plate of doughnuts. Susan comments that with a big event like this, there must be a catch which gives Zeke cause for concern.
Zeke is putting together a playlist, and Donna tries to have a conversation with him about PirateNet but Zeke has no time for her. Donna approaches the subject directly, admitting that she hates herself for what she did, and she knows Zeke does too. Zeke explains that Ringo wasn't just her boyfriend, he was his best mate, and because of her, he's now gone.
Donna leaves as Bec and Paul come in, and Zeke mentions that he's impressed with the new equipment, which Paul says is good for business. Zeke agrees to show Paul the new playlist when he's done.
Over at the bar, Bec asks Paul when they might see some money coming out of the station, rather than pouring loads into it...but Paul gives her the ‘speculate to accumulate' line. Harry comes in, asking after Andrew, and Paul is pleased that Harry is still wearing his new basketball shoes. Andrew says he loved them – it was the shoes that won him the trials!
Paul gives this some thought...
Cut straight to the radio station where Paul has asked Zeke to interview Harry for the show: it will widen their listening audience, and Harry will be an inspiration to kids. Paul positions it as a kid who fought his demons to make good, and Zeke agrees.
In the studio itself, Harry is impressed with the new radio equipment, and Zeke concedes that Paul did have some good ideas with the station. Paul wishes them luck – and reminds Harry to mention the shoes, the brand, and how it made him win the trials. Zeke is disgusted – this isn't an infomercial! Paul says it's a commercial station now, and the new PirateNet has to pay. Paul instructs Zeke to do as he's told, as his boss.
Cut back to the studios later, and Paul is still lecturing Zeke who doesn't want to do the interview. Zeke understands that commercials are important, but this is an advertorial, and his credibility is at stake, as well as his share of the demographic. Paul tells Zeke that the shoe company sponsoring them is in line with the station's ethics, he's not stupid enough to alienate the old listeners.
Zeke wonders if he's supposed to take Paul's word for it, and Paul says no: Zeke is smart so he should go out and research it.
Susan is sitting having coffee. When was the last time she was actually at work?! I wish I had this kind of a life. Zeke is on his laptop, researching the basketball shoe company, and he admits that Paul was right; the company is socially responsible, and supports fair trade. Zeke feels guilty, now, especially as Paul has poured so much money in to the station. And at that moment, Paul comes in, and Zeke says he'll do the interview, and will mention the shoes. Susan rolls her eyes. But Zeke adds a condition – Paul has to be honest and transparent about any endorsements coming up, and they have to fit in with the ethos of PirateNet. They shake on it.
Declan comes in with India, and Jumilla gets them a coffee. Kate is filling in a form of guardianship , as she turns 18 next week, and Declan can't believe that she didn't tell anyone. Kate tells him that she doesn't want people knowing.
Kate turns up at Donna's, who tells her she's in trouble for not telling people about her birthday. Kate doesn't want to think about it, but Donna wants to do it for her. Donna is upset – Zeke still hates her, and she doesn't know why she came back; everything's weird.
Rebecca hears this, and comes over: they *are* pleased that she's back, but there have to be some rules for both her and Andrew, now. Bec reassures Donna that they love her, and they think of her as part of the family.
Zeke is interviewing Harry, who thanks his sisters and his cousin Andrew – and his shoes! Zeke reminds the listeners that the shoes are fair trade, and Harry is impressed with his interview – he wants to do a sports update every week! He then gets a text and says he has to go, as Melissa comes in.
She perches next to Zeke.
MELISSA: So, what's the different between Zeke Kinski and a Pink concert? Nothing, they've both sold out.
She's not at all pleased with Zeke's approach, and can't believe that he endorsed the shoes; she accuses him of being Paul's puppet. Zeke gives her the spiel about increasing their demographic, and Melissa disagrees. She strops off.
In the sports hall, Griffo is challenging Harry to a one on one game of basketball. If Harry wins, Griffo will leave Harry alone; if he loses, then he quits the team. Harry reminds him he's already on the team, and isn't going to quit – but he's not gutless, either, and will play Griffo.
One on one, they play. When it's all even, Harry tells him he has nothing to prove anymore, and goes to leave. Griffo accuses him of being a wimp.
HARRY: I am going to play on this team, and you are going to leave me alone. I am good – and that's why you want me off the team. Pretty lame, really. So we're gonna work together, and we're gonna win this championship. Or I'm gonna tell everyone that you're so scared of me showing you up that you had this pathetic bet. So deal with it.
He walks off, meeting Andrew at the door, who was recording the whole thing on his iPhone. His cousin congratulates him.
Paul and Rebecca come in, and Paul presents Zeke – who's sitting with Kate and Dec – the viewing stats for the old PirateNet. He shows that Karl was the most popular slot on the last show, and they need him back! Zeke says he'll see what he can do! Dec can't believe that Zeke would bring Karl back, after last time, but Zeke thinks it might be good for the station.
When he leaves, Kate punches Dec for telling Donna about her birthday. She doesn't want a big deal, just a quiet family dinner and nothing more. At the counter, Andrew is showing Harry the recording of Griffo and Harry. Donna approaches them and can't believe Harry is recording people again without them knowing.
She hands him a roster – for the house. They might live together, but they don't have to see each other.
Karl is reading the paper with his old woman glasses. Susan comes and takes his empty tea cup.
SUSAN: Can I get you another one, madam?
KARL: So funny.
SUSAN: I'm sorry. It is impossible to take you seriously.
KARL: Well, you're gonna have to because the glasses are staying.
And he does want another cup. Zeke comes in, sees Karl, and laughs. He then says he wants Karl back on the show, but Karl's concerned about what happened last time with their relationship. He's hesitating, so Zeke says he'll even let Karl choose some music...! That's all Karl needs – he's in there!
Zeke leaves, and Susan's really impressed with Karl getting his radio slot back.
Karl is about to do his slot on Zeke's show when Paul comes in with some herbal weight- loss tea bags. He wants the product promoted, as they're sponsoring Karl's slot. Karl refuses – he can't do this as it has no medically proven benefits. Paul insists that it happens, but neither Zeke nor Karl is happy about it. They go to air and Zeke announces on air that they're going to talk about tea.
Cut to later when the slot has finished and Karl is furious at Zeke for railroading him; his integrity has been compromised as a medic. Karl walks out, and Melissa comes in with complaint calls from long- time listeners. Zeke tries to defend his actions:
MEL: These are protests from our long- time listeners, the ones who supported us when we stuck to what we believed in.
ZEKE: Okay, we're a commercial station now, I'm sure they'll understand.
MEL: We've lost these listeners, Zeke, we're never going to get them back!
ZEKE: Then we'll get new listeners!
MEL: You don't get it! We've completed destroyed PirateNet! It's never going to be the same again!
