Summer has fallen asleep on the chair next to Andrew's bed and is woken by Andrew gently stroking her face. She looks at her watch and says she had better leave because it's getting late. Andrew doesn't want her to but Summer says that everyone will wonder where she is. Before she goes, Andrew wants her to help him prop up his pillow a little bit and as she does it, they come face to face and they look like they want to kiss each other before Summer says that they had agreed they wouldn't do this. Summer turns to go before turning back on her way out and smiling at Andrew.
SUMMER: I love you.
ANDREW: I love you too.
Natasha is holding a mirror and looking at the bandage on her neck but when she hears Summer coming home, she turns off the light and pretends to be asleep. Summer creeps quietly into the room and as she crawls into bed, she's surprised by Tash asking her where she has been. Before she can answer, Tash suggests “your boyfriend's?” and Summer is momentarily worried but Natasha's talking about Chris. Natasha brings up the fact that she has her check up tomorrow and she puts on a tough act that she's OK with it – she just wanted Summer to know so that she won't hog the bathroom in the morning.
Toadie is over and Karl asks him how his leg is.
KARL: I know that expression, that's the ‘would you have a look at it, Karl'.
TOADIE: Oh if you don't mind.
Karl smiles and tells him to drop by the hospital and Toadie takes a piece of toast off his plate. Susan is making breakfast in the kitchen but Donna doesn't want any as she's not hungry. She's too preoccupied with her portfolio but she's not sure if they're any good. Toadie thinks that perhaps she's too close to it which is why she can't tell so they all encourage her to show them the work. She starts to flip through her collection called “Urban Savage” while Susan, Karl and Toadie all look confused but encouraging. They insist it's terrific!
TOADIE: It's very directional!
Donna is measuring Mark up for her jacket because he's the right build (and what a nice build it is!). Sophie comments that from the drawings, it looks like a giant tea- towel and Kate quickly shoos her off. Lucas comes home from a jog and cracks up laughing when he sees Mark being measured up to model but Brennan tells Lucas that he owes him one because if he hadn't turned up, it would be Lucas as the model! Lucas picks up the drawing and is lost for words.
LUCAS: It's great! It's uh..it's..what's the word I'm looking for?
KATE: Uhh directional.
LUCAS: Yeah, directional.
Lucas leaves to make an oil delivery and Brennan offers to help with the unloading. Donna sighs and says her Urban Savage is an Urban Disaster but Kate is encouraging.
KATE: Donna, these are really creative, and fresh, and…
Donna looks concerned.
Tash is waiting for her check up and Michael checks that she's OK. She pretends that she's fine and wants him to stop stressing her out. Karl sees Toadie out after his check up and tells him to take it easy on the leg before calling Tash into the room. Her neck wound is healing well but Karl wants to switch to a lighter dressing and Natasha wants to know if it's OK to use a scarf. He tells her it's not necessary to hide it but Tash declares that none of her clothes go with the zombie look so she'd rather keep the scarf on if it's not making the wound worse. Tash doesn't want to look at it and just wants Karl to re- dress it, and as he leaves to get new dressings and Michael leaves to talk to him, Natasha takes a compact out of her bag and looks at the wound. She looks close to tears.
After the check- up, Mike checks again that Tash is OK. She's annoyed that he's being negative about the possibility of scarring but he tells her she could have died in the fire – but she's here, she's got him, friends, and a boyfriend who loves her.
NATASHA: OK, I get it, you love me. Now let's move on.
Mike then gives her a funny look and she realises what he's after. A hug. In public! She stands rigid and tells him to get it over with, but as he envelopes her in his arms Natasha reaches her arms around him too and smiles.
Erinsborough Hospital – Andrew's Room
Summer has come to visit Andrew and they only have enough time to exchange a few sentences before Natasha walks in. She climbs into bed with Andrew and both he and Summer look very uncomfortable. Natasha wants him to choose a DVD – or alternatively, they could do “something else” but Andrew tells her he's sore since he just had an operation. He's also uncomfortable with Tash lying on the bed as well so she apologises and sits on the chair. Andrew then softens his tone and tells her that he's just tired but Tash fiddles with her scarf looking hurt while Summer is standing at the foot of the bed looking awkward.
Mark and Kate are kissing across the counter while Lucas and Lou are telling them to knock it off while Michael stands in the background looking amused. Lucas and Mark sit down at a table with Sophie and Toadie. Sophie shows Mark a picture on her phone but he's already seen it - and so has Lou. Toadie is mortified and wants to know how it's gone viral. Natasha and Summer walk in and Tash tells Toadie that she facebooked his embarrassing photos.
Mike heads off to one side with Summer and confides that he can tell Natasha is struggling, but she's a good liar. Michael wants Summer to look out for Tash – he knows that Natasha puts on a tough independent act but she actually really does like Summer and needs a shoulder right now. Summer hesitates but agrees.
Nick pulls up outside number 28 and is greeted by Susan and Donna. He gives them both hugs and asks how Donna is. He can tell that something is wrong because she only gave him the one word answer “good”. He asks what the big news is and Susan leaves to give them a little space. Donna tells Nick about being accepted into a New York design school and he's thrilled for her. She doesn't look so thrilled though because she thinks her portfolio sucks and everyone hates it but they're too nice to say it sucks.
As Donna brings her portfolio over to show Nick, Toadie hobbles in asking Susan where Zeke is. He wants Zeke's geek brain to help take down his embarrassing holiday photos that have gone viral. Susan has a sly grin on her face and Toadie twigs that she's seen the photos too. Donna pipes in that she has as well and they're hilarious. Susan agrees to tell Zeke that it's an emergency!
Nick gives his honest opinion about the drawings – he doesn't like them. He also adds that he's not the target audience so he's not a good judge. Donna says that she's happy about the honest opinion but she obviously can't handle it. She's downtrodden that her work sucks and she goes to put them in the barbeque.
Summer walks into Tash's room and Tash instantly gets off her bed and puts her scarf on. Summer thinks it's because she's going somewhere but she isn't – so Summer just stares at her until Tash sarcastically asks if Sum wants to take a picture. Summer suggests that they hang out and tries to make conversation but Natasha shuts her down and tells her to go light a fire somewhere. Summer leaves and as the door closes, Natasha collapses into tears on the bed which is seen by Sum who walks back in to retrieve her phone.
Erinsborough Hospital – Andrew's Room
Karl reminds Andrew that he has a physio session later on before he leaves. Summer arrives and asks if Andrew has done anything to Tash to upset her. Andrew realises it's what he hasn't done – he brushed her off earlier when she tried to kiss him because Summer was in the room and he didn't want to hurt her. Summer tells him that Tash thinks it's to do with her neck and she's very upset and Andrew has to fix it. Summer wants him to actually commit if he's going to stay with Tash because she's in a really bad place right now. He's wants to know what they'll do if Natasha's scars are permanent and Summer doesn't know either. Andrew reluctant picks up his phone to call Tash.
Tash is looking at her neck again in the mirror when her phone starts ringing. Michael bursts into the room and is surprised that Tash is there since the phone wasn't being picked up. She says that it's no- one important and Mike looks like he wants to say something but changes his mind and leaves. Tash flips through a fashion magazine before getting up and ripping down the Pirate Net poster that she posed for. She wraps the scarf around her neck and hurries out.
Susan is glancing at Donna sitting at the dining table while she makes tea. She brings a mug over to Nick on the sofa and he comments that he's getting the silent treatment from Donna. Susan tells Donna that her father (and all of them) want what's best for her, but she rips a page out of her portfolio, screws it up and throws it away before walking out the door.
Donna bumps into Tash and asks if she has a copy of Italian Vogue in the pile of magazines that she's carrying. Tash answers in the negative and Donna is surprised that Tash doesn't have fashion magazines on her. Natasha says that since she can't model anymore, she will have to do something else and she claims that she's cool with that. She tells Donna that there's nothing worse than people who try to do things that they suck at and it's best to give up if she's no good at it.
Donna returns and apologises to Nick for being angry with his honest opinion. Donna is upbeat because she knows exactly what she wants to do. She realises that her work is OK for a local market, but not for the international market. Nick and Susan think that she means she's going back to the drawing board but Donna clarifies that she's over it and won't be going to New York.
DONNA: I know what I'm doing. Please stop telling me how to live my life.
(Donna is visiting Andrew in hospital)
ANDREW: You've got to know your limits, if you're too scared, why bother, right?
(Donna walks up to Toadie, Declan and Zeke at Harold's Store)
DONNA: Nice try, but it's not gonna work.
(Kate and Mark are making out)
(Lucas is making kissy noises at Mark)
MARK: It's my girlfriend you're talking about!
LUCAS: I'm offering you a chance to redeem yourselves.
MARK: I'm in.
TOADIE: I still know how to party.
(Lucas' friend is making him an offer)
LUCAS' FRIEND: If you're short of cash, I might have something for you.
LUCAS: Yeah, like what?
LUCAS' FRIEND: You got empty space. I got stuff that needs storing. What do you reckon?
LUCAS: I gotta ask. Is it dodgy?
