Donna telling Kate that her trying to get back t normal is her way of grieving.
Paul telling Sam that Steph and Lib have settled some of their differences.
Karl shocked that Libby's going to lie under oath in court about Steph.
Summer liking Andrew.
Tash realising that Andrew likes Summer.
Tash telling Sophie that she has to vote on the school social board to let Andrew get the music gig, or she'll tell everyone that Soph fancies Zeke.
Tash yells across the road to Sophie to remind her to go to the social committee meeting later. Sophie is uncomfortable. Lucas offers Soph a lift to school; she declines and walks off. Sam pulls up in a convertible, and tells Lucas that she misses the street; he tells her the feeling's not mutual.
Steph spots Sam in her car, and Sam stares at her before driving off.
Lyn, Toadie and Libby try to reassure Steph, and Lib says she'll put off going to see Ben for a while. Steph argues with her friend, but Lib refuses. They agree to meet later to get together a gameplan to neutralise Sam.

The social committee meeting is underway, led by Tash. She starts by talking about the entertainment, and Libby arrives to observe. Tash says that although Zeke was going to be doing the entertainment and music, something's come up, and they're now considering asking Andrew. He can do the lights, sound equipment and DJing. The vote on this yesterday was tied, so Tash wants to re- vote.
Andrew wins the vote after Tash scowls at Sophie to force her to cast her vote in his favour.
Later, Tash is putting up posters for the social. Summer can't believe that they're going to have a ‘prom' King and Queen – she thinks it's sexist, antiquated popularity contest.
TASH: That's what all the unpopular people say.
Summer points out that this all about Tash and nothing else, so Summer will have to like it. Summer warns Tash that she'll only have to take the posters down again once things change.
Donna comes over to see Paul with Karl's guitar, she wants to show him a song she's learnt. ‘Free As A River' – does Paul know it? Oh yes, Paul does, and he really doesn't want to hear it again.
PAUL: I'm prepared to pay you $100 if this guitar stays in its case.
DONNA: You're very funny sometimes, Paul, when you're not being dark and serious.
Paul says he's really busy, and has to answer letters to the editor. Donna asks to help – she'll be a great secretary. Paul gives in.
Cut to later and Donna has put the letters in two piles: boring and not- so- boring. Paul gets on with reading the latter, and says that Susan can have the boring ones. Donna starts writing a post- it note to Susan, doodled with a flower.
Paul wonders if Donna has other things to do, but she's done her uni assignments, work, tidied, washed her hair, etc. She likes to keep busy. Paul gets that she needs things to keep her occupied, and so asks her to help with the letters. Paul's funny responses makes Donna laugh.
Karl and Susan are sitting, talking about Libby wanting to lie under oath, when Steph walks in. They leave to go play golf, and run into Sam, who says that she's heard some really good things about Erinsborough Hospital. Steph watches them, annoyed. In walks Libby, who tells Sam to stay away from her parents.
So Sam tells Libby that she spoke to Dan last night – Adam's doing really well. Seems that all Dan needed was to be a father, something that Libby couldn't do. Steph walks over and orders Sam outside.
Outside Steph tells Sam to back off, to stop harassing her friends, and leave her alone. Sam retorts that this isn't about friendship, it's about justice for Ringo. Steph tells Sam to bring it on.
Back inside Paul and Donna sit down for lunch before they get back to work. Donna wants more to do! Toadie meets Libby at her table, followed by Steph who has had a go at Sam. Steph tries to convince Libby to go and see Ben; she has her family looking after her.
Donna is completely distracted by Steph's presence, and agrees to write a column for Paul whilst watching Steph surrounded by her best mates.
Erinsborough High School
Summer is presenting to the committee, asking them to think about not having a King and Queen – the social isn't a prom and shouldn't represent such values. She has a long, values- based speech. Tash makes a presentation, with two words: hot and glamorous. The committee votes in favour of hot and glamorous once Sophie has the deciding vote and has to go with Tash for fear of bribery.
Out in the corridor Sum asks Sophie if anything's wrong, but she denies it. Tash reproaches Summer – this is what democracy is, taking a vote.
TASH: Sorry Sum. The committee voted, you'll just have to go with it. And you might want to do something about that weird fringe of yours whilst you're at it.
Summer gets out her phone and calls Andrew.
Steph sits at a table. Lucas comes in with a box and goes into the kitchen, and then in comes Sam.
LUCAS: What are you doing here?
SAM: Getting a coffee, Lucas, that's what people do in coffee shops.
Lucas leaves, and Sam approaches Steph and apologises for what she said earlier; she shouldn't have made it personal. Steph doesn't want to speak to her, so Sam says she wants to clear the air and give Steph something in case things don't work out. After all, jail can be lonely, and Charlie will miss her terribly. She hands Steph a stack of leaflets on ‘children of prisoners' and ‘mummy has gone to prison'. Lucas walks back in with another box and sees Steph panicking.
The Scullys and Toadie and Lucas are furious about what Sam's done. Toadie agrees to go speak to Sam and see what he can do.
Erinsborough High School
Sophie asks Tash if she's let off the hook, yet, but Tash says no: she'll keep Sophie's secret as long as Sophie is useful to her. Sophie leaves, miserable. Summer comes over and tells Tash that she's so busy now – Andrew has made her the production manager for all the music and sound work, so she'll be helping out, and then they'll be spending the whole night of the social together.
SUMMER: You know, I think I'm kind of liking my fringe.
Libby is leaving to go see Ben, and Karl tries to convince his daughter to think about the whole lying in court thing whilst she's away. Paul and Donna turn up with the guitar, and Donna hugs Libby goodbye, although Lib rather cruelly doesn't return her hug.
The Ks disappear and Paul thanks Donna for all her work. She's also the most interesting secretary he's ever had (what, more than Melanie?). Donna spots a picture of her and Ringo and asks Paul if there's something else she could do to help around the house with cooking or cleaning.
Paul tells her that she doesn't need an excuse to go back home to them if he wants; she doesn't have to stay at the Ks'. Donna says that it will hurt wherever she is. Paul hugs her.
The Law Offices
Sam turns up to see Toadie, who warns her to stop intimidating his client. He adds that he has enough to get Sam charged with witness intimidation, and then perverting the course of justice. He reminds her that her involvement in this case is personal, and she might want to watch that – she wouldn't want to get struck off now, would she?
Sam strops off.
Sam drinks alone until Paul joins her, realising she hasn't been welcomed back with open arms.
Toadie tells the Scullys what happened, although Sam probably couldn't really be charged.
Sam asks after Elle, and Paul says she's fine. He adds that he hates what Donna's going through right now.
Lyn and Steph thank Toadie for everything.
Sam admits to Paul that she tried something with Steph and it backfired; now everyone's against her. Paul realises that Sam could do with an ally – his only motive is wanting what's best for Donna. He wants to see Steph go to jail for as long as possible. So anything she needs, Paul will provide it. They clink glasses.
