- Kate leaving an ‘I love you' voicemail for Mark
- Summer learning Tash's scan photos are fake
- Tash's pregnancy secret finally being exposed
Michael has fallen into stunned silence while Andrew and Summer turn on Tash. But Tash has got a few choice words of her own for the duo.
ANDREW: You made me think that this was mine!
TASH: And you cheated on me!
TASH: With her! I saw you two together the day I got the all- clear from the hospital.
Tash asks Summer how she could do this to her, reminding her she ran into a burning building to save her. Not to mention the fact her dad nearly died. Andrew growls at Tash that she's unbelievable before storming out. Summer isn't far behind.
Summer chases Andrew up the driveway and tries to get him to calm down, but he's not in the mood. She apologises for the way the secret was blurted out, but she didn't want to see him suffer any longer. Summer says that while they were in the wrong, what Tash did was twisted. Andrew can't bear the thought of talking about it any longer, though, and runs home.
Number 22/Number 28/Number 32
Paul is gobsmacked when Andrew tells him about Tash and her lies - he can't believe it all boiled down to revenge. Paul wants to go straight over to Number 32 and give the Williams' a piece of his mind, but Andrew despairingly tells his dad to stay put and “just be with me”.
Meanwhile, Summer is venting her frustrations to Chris and is in total disbelief that Tash would sink so low. Summer knows betraying Tash was wrong, but it all just stemmed from one fleeting thought about ‘living in the moment'. Summer can't believe Tash would be so cruel.
Paul sits down next to Andrew and puts a comforting arm around him, while Chris does the same with Summer. But Tash is left all alone in the house when Michael breezes out with his surfing gear, not even talking to her.
Kate has called Jade over for an emergency conference about her embarrassing phone message and how to fix her mistake. Jade gets a gleam in her eye and says they're heading back to the bar to see if Mark's still around - maybe he hasn't listened to the message yet.
Kate ‘hides' in the entryway (behind some very visible see- through bars) while Jade ‘casually' bumps into Mark and asks if he's heard from Kate today. When she realises Mark hasn't looked at his phone, she scurries back to Kate to put another plan into action. They have to steal Mark's phone and erase the message themselves.
Jade strolls over to the table where Mark's workmates are (while he's getting drinks) and engages them in conversation. She rifles through Mark's jacket pockets for the phone but has no luck, eventually returning to Kate with the bad news when Mark brings back the drinks. Kate helplessly wonders what Plan C is.
Paul encourages Andrew to eat his dinner but food is the last thing on his mind. When Michael walks in, Paul immediately goes on the attack and gets in Michael's face about his horrible daughter.
PAUL: Who knew that deception ran in the family? I shouldn't be surprised, though, after what you did with my wife. Yeah, you were so busy chasing her you couldn't see what your own daughter was doing. But then I always knew that she was a lying, two- faced...
MICHAEL: Your son lied to her too.
PAUL: My son didn't pretend to be pregnant.
MICHAEL: No, he was just running around with someone else behind her back. Where'd he learn that from?
Andrew interrupts before things become more heated and tells his dad they should leave. Natasha walks in and Paul nearly has a go at her, but Michael steps in and barks at him to leave his daughter alone. Tash is happy her dad stood up for her and asks if he can see why she lied, but Michael says there is no excuse for what she did.
First Commercial Break
Summer's on the phone to Lyn (who has taken Charlie to visit Oscar), but she doesn't tell her Nan what's been going on. Paul sees her and has a chat, thanking her for exposing the lie. Summer knew it was going to be hard on Andrew but Paul thinks it will be for the best in the long run.
Kate and Jade have snuck in for another round of ‘steal Mark's phone'. Kate's worried that Mark's going to be suss right away, but Jade says it'll be fine.
JADE: I won't get caught. I've always been really good at getting into men's pants, you just have to distract them.
Jade full- on pushes Kate into Mark while he's at the bar and sneakily fishes around in his back pocket while his focus is averted. You reckon Mark might need to change professions? First not seeing the girls while they were “hiding” and now not realising Jade is feeling up his butt? Nice detective work, Sherlock. Mark asks Kate how her court date went and Kate says she got off with a fine and a good behaviour bond. When the girls walk away Jade reveals that she stole something, it was just the wrong something. Mark is now down one notebook.
Lucas finds Michael sitting by himself, down in the dumps, and stops to lend a friendly ear. He asks how Mike is about the whole Andrew and Tash thing. Mike says he's angry but also relieved his teenage daughter isn't actually pregnant. He adds that he doesn't feel like he knows Tash any more.
LUCAS: Kids do stupid things.
MICHAEL: This was more than that. I thought I was going to be a grandfather. I supported her, I would have done anything. The worst part is that there's a part of me that's not really surprised. We teach our kids by example, or at least we should, and look at the example I've given her.
LUCAS: That's not the same thing.
MICHAEL: Rebecca and I, we lied, we snuck around, we covered things up. It was wrong. Should I be surprised that Tash did what she did?
Lucas reminds him that Tash is old enough to be responsible for her own actions, but Michael is still upset. He thought that Tash had shown signs of growth and maturity over the past year but now he's not sure. Lucas says that despite everything, Tash is still Mike's daughter and he has to stick by her. But Michael can only shake his head, not knowing if he can do that right now.
Andrew lets himself in to grab the pram he bought, coldly informing Tash he's taking it back to the store tomorrow to get a refund. All Tash can say is, “Whatever”, which really riles Andrew up. He goes off at her for making him put everything on the line, his career options, his savings... “And Summer” Tash says, filling in the blanks.
TASH: That's why you're so angry because you and your precious little Summer couldn't be together. You cheated on me, I did nothing to deserve that!
ANDREW: And you think I deserved this? You can't even see how wrong it is to pretend that you're pregnant. Not even your own dad's around. He doesn't get what you've done because it's so sick and twisted. He can't even be in the same room as you and neither can anybody else.
Second Commercial Break
Toadie and Sonya have joined Jade and Kate for a drink, but the girls are too busy staring Mark's way, trying to figure out the best moment to try their next strategy. Jade eventually sends Kate on her way to ask Mark if she could borrow his phone to call a taxi. Kate's surprised when he lends it right away, but when she scurries back to Jade they can't figure out how to access the voicemail. Mark springs them and Kate tells the truth, so Mark just deletes the message without listening to it. Kate gives him a sad look so Jade takes her home, but not before returning Mark's notepad to him with a cheeky smile.
Summer leaves another anguished voicemail for Andrew, asking for him to call her. Lucas finds Sonya and Toadie at the counter and asks them if they've heard from Libby lately, laughingly telling them that she's going on a two- week meditation retreat. They're interrupted by Tash, who's looking for her dad. She's worried because she hasn't seen him all day. Seeing how distressed she is, Lucas hugs her and assures her that Mike will be back before she knows it.
While Paul's on the phone to a courier, asking them to pick up the pram to return in the morning, Andrew mournfully stares at the ‘I Love My Dad' cup he bought.
Third Commercial Break
Tash sets out two cups of coffee and some biscuits for when her dad eventually gets home. But when Michael does arrive back, he's still in a bad mood with her. Tash apologises profusely and says it's the stupidest thing she's ever done, and that she just wants things to be right between them.
MICHAEL: Natasha you're my daughter and I love you.
TASH: I love you too, dad. You were never meant to find out about the baby. It was all Andrew's fault. It was never meant to...
MICHAEL: Stop, stop! You deliberately set out to hurt people because you'd been hurt. It was selfish, it was wrong and it was cruel. What you did... I can't get past that.
TASH: Tell me what to do. Please dad, just tell me what to do to make things right.
MICHAEL: You don't get it.
TASH: Tell me.
Michael gives up and tells Tash he's going for a drive and for her to not wait up. The next morning Tash wakes up and looks around the house, but her dad is nowhere to be seen. Michael's been away all night.
(Tomorrow on Neighbours)
MICHAEL: I just feel like running away.
(Tash leaves a voicemail for her dad)
TASH: Will you please call me back? I'm just really worried OK.
(Lucas tries to give Mike some advice)
LUCAS: You can continue to feel sorry for yourself or you can go and talk to your daughter. She's a kid, she needs you.
(Andrew finally chats to Summer)
ANDREW: There's nothing stopping us now. Me and you should just pick up where we left off like none of this mess ever happened.
(Tash wards off Macca the school bully)
TASH: For your information I only did it to pay them back.
MACCA: Hoyland and Robbo getting nasty? What a skank.
(Macca makes trouble for Summer and Andrew)
SUMMER: How can we be happy when you've got all this anger with you?
