Mark deleting an ‘I love you' message Kate left on his voicemail.
Toadie suggesting Callum gets some counselling after hearing about his nightmares.
Number 30 garage
Toadie spots that Sonya is up when he returns from a bike ride with Jade. He tells her that he is going to have a word with Karl about counselling Callum but Sonya feels that they should get a professional. Toad replies that it's all set because Callum is happy with the plans.
Despite Sophie's protests, Kate doesn't give in to her request to go to some movie premier because she doesn't want her out late at night
Mark enters the store and banters with Jade about her not stealing while he waits for Kate to make his coffee.
Sophie runs after Mark when he exits the store to try and persuade him to go out with Kate again after she spotted him looking at Kate whilst she made his coffee and the fact he still keeps going to the store for his coffee. Mark isn't buying it though and tells her to leave it.
Sophie then spots Jade leaving the store and tries to sign her up to ‘Operation reunite' and eventually agrees after Soph wears her down when she goes on that Jade isn't/won't be such a good friend as Donna was.
Having been roped into ‘Operation reunite', Jade then tries to get the low- down from Lucas on how Mark is feeling about Kate but he is none the wiser and she departs somewhat frustrated.
Callum saunters through from his room as Sonya is tidying up the livingroom and they begin talking about the counselling. Cal is having doubts about whether to have the counselling or not and seeks her opinion, which she is very reluctant to give, before she subtly quizzes him on what he wants until he eventually answers his own question - which is he wants answers and the man to help him get those answers walks into the house with his dad.
Number 30 veranda
Toadie tries to reassure Sonya that things will be okay and that Karl will help Callum.
Karl begins by reassuring Callum that facing up to fears can help then starts by asking Callum what he sees in his dream.
Number 30 veranda
Toadie seeks reassurance that they are doing the right thing or not, then adds that he wishes his (Cal's) mum could see the damage that she has done and is still doing.
Callum describes that he is at his Gran's house, on the veranda and someone is there – he thinks it's her. He then goes to get up but Karl gently restrains him and asks what she is doing. Cal clams up, saying he doesn't know, so Karl does some breathing techniques to aid the information coming to him. This seems to work because next, Cal describes mum standing in front of him but the sun is in his eyes so he can't see her face. “How do you feel in the dream?” Karl asks and he replies sad and then scared. Karl then enquires if he remembers anything else.
Number 30 backyard
Cal rushes out to the balcony to tell them that mum was wearing a green and purple dress in his dream as we head into the first commercial break.
As they head to the store, Callum continues to tell Toadie and Sonya snippets of the dream and Toadie suggests waiting a couple of days before undergoing another session with Karl. After he rushes into the store to get a table, Toadie pulls Sonya back to reassure her that Callum will be fine, not picking up the real reason that she has gone very quiet! “I'm not going to let anything hurt him,” he says to her whilst pulling her him for a reassuring hug.
Jade spots then and Toadie leaves them to chat, heading inside to join Callum. She can see from Toadie's smile that the counselling session went well but her smile drops when Sonya fills her in that Callum can remember what she was wearing and that he wants to continue the sessions until he can remember everything. Jade asks if her sister is okay and she replies that she wishes there was a way to stop the nightmares without having to dig up the past.
After reassuring Mark she isn't here to steal, she comes straight out and asks what the deal is with Kate and himself. “We broke up,” is his puzzled reply before he worms out from Jade why she is suddenly interested. However, as they are chatting (very cosily it has to be said), Lucas and Karl enter the bar and think that Mark has moved on… to Jade!
Callum and Sophie are chatting about his dream/counselling as he holds his cuddly gorilla and hovering outside the livingroom is Sonya with the one she took from Callum that is featuring so prominently in his dreams. She then enters the room and shows them “her” one and telling them (and the now joined Toadie) that a friend gave it to her as a good luck thing. Sonya tries to say she left it lying around when she first moved in and that the person Cal is dreaming about his her.
“Then why did Callum get so scared,” Sophie asks her, despite Callum saying he wasn't! “You've been through a lot lately,” she quickly comes up with, adding that his brain's just trying to process everything and is putting it together weirdly.
TOADIE: What do you reckon Squid?
CALLUM: Maybe but it doesn't feel like a dream, it feels like a memory.
Toadie quickly reassures Callum that he doesn't need to worry about his mum, he has himself and Sonya – and she suggests they leave it for now.
Commercial break later and Sophie and Callum sit and chat following on from the earlier discussion with Sonya. Cal is now totally confused over the whole thing but Sophie tells him to try again and they do so, carrying on with the technique Karl taught him – slow breaths. However, when Callum looks for the dream, he can't see it at all and is disappointed because he wanted to see his mum's face. A puzzled Sophie asks if he doesn't have any photos and he replies that Gran never kept any. She does tell him something positive though – at least now he'll be able to get some sleep!
Toadie reports to Sonya that Callum is asleep and thanks her for what she said to Callum. Before going off to make a cuppa, he tells her that she is the closest thing that Callum has to a mum. She then does a mum thing, by going into the livingroom and covering up the sleeping Callum with the throw from the back of the sofa before tenderly stroking his face.
Kate asks her sister how Callum is (fine) before seeing through Sophie's plan to cheer him up – by going to a movie!
Sophie heads off to do her homework just as Lucas comes home. He very subtly starts asking questions about Jade before telling her that he thinks she is cracking onto Mark. Kate initially dismisses his suggestion but then seems receptive to being told more and her heart seems to sink when he tells her. He finishes off by saying that she is probably right, it's him who has misconstrued things but when he heads to his room, Kate looks furious!
Kate enters the gym moments after Mark joins Jade on the bikes – both are trying to work off what they ate at lunchtime. They don't see Kate as they banter away but she's more than seen enough and goes over to them to pull Jade away for a quiet word.
When they get to the other side of the gym, Kate isn't slow in having a go at a puzzled Jade. “You're crazy,” is Jade's summation of the whole thing before walking away from her! “You can't walk away,” she shouts after her as Jade makes her way to the changing rooms. “I think you and I need a chat,” Mark tells Kate when he now makes his way over to where she is standing and the pair of them head outside as we head into the final commercial break.
Mark totally denies Kate's accusation that he has moved onto Jade, telling her she's got it totally wrong, and isn't impressed at being accused of something he hasn't done.
Kate then spots Jade coming out of the gym and runs over to her to apologise for jumping to conclusions. Jade is peeved that she believed Mark and after explaining what she was actually trying to do with Mark, calls off their friendship because its more trouble than its worth.
