- Jade realising she may have feelings for Kyle
- Harold returning to Ramsay Street
- Toadie and Sonya fighting about her promise
Number 30/Lassiter's Park
Toadie shoves the photo of he, Sonya and Callum back into the drawer and then has to explain to Callum what just went down with Sonya. Callum doesn't think it's fair that Toadie's shut Sonya out again, but Toadie says he's trying to do the right thing.
Lucas isn't too thrilled when he hears about the promise Sonya made to Callum. He's sympathetic but reminds her that they're addicts and there's always a chance they could relapse, no matter how good their life is - or who's in it. Sonya's upset because things were just starting to get back on track with Callum and Toadie and now it's all over.
Callum hates the thought of Toadie just giving up and heads out the door, intent on tracking Sonya down. Harold crosses paths with the teen, throwing confused look Toadie's way. A short while later Toadie has explained the latest dilemma to Harold and claims that he's never going to open his heart to anyone ever again.
HAROLD: You've been hurt, and not just for the first time. You've lost Dee you've lost Steph...
TOADIE: Harold, don't.
HAROLD: No you need to hear this. The pain of the past is no excuse to stop looking for happiness. No matter how this turns out, no matter what happens with Sonya, you must never stop taking risks.
Jade's folding washing when she suddenly goes into daydream mode and imagines that Kyle is her boyfriend. She's confused in the daydream, though, and doesn't get why Kyle's being so couply with her. In fact, daydream Jade seems pretty repulsed by the whole idea of being someone's girlfriend. The fantasy ends when there's a knock at the door, but when Jade opens it she sees Kyle and promptly shuts it in his face! Regaining her cool, Jade invites Kyle in and asks what he wants, not keen on the idea of spending more time with him today. But Kyle says his mate Honga is busy and he figures since they've both got nothing on they should do nothing together.
Lucas asks Sonya if she wants him to stick around when they see Callum approach, but Sonya says she'll be fine. Callum thinks Toadie's an idiot for interfering in their relationship but Sonya says Toadie's just looking out for him. Sonya then says that she loves Callum but she shouldn't have promised that she wouldn't relapse because she can't guarantee it won't happen again. Callum glares at her and wryly thanks her for finally being honest with him.
Harold's checking out his old store when Kate accidentally bumps into him. She recognises his face and introductions are made, with Kate inviting him over for dinner one night so he can be in his old house again. While they're chatting a guy approaches them and asks if they've seen the lawyer next door. Kate goes back to work but Harold says he knows Toadie and tells the man he can pass on some details. The man (Captain Troy Miller) hands him a business card from the Australian Defence Force and says he just got back from Afghanistan. Harold's wary when Troy says that Toadie contacted him about Sonya Mitchell, an old friend of his, and needs to see him urgently.
First Commercial Break
Lucas assures Sonya she did the right thing telling Callum the truth, but Sonya mutters it was thirteen years too late. He convinces her to play a game of darts with him just as Kyle and Jade arrive. Kyle grabs some drinks while Jade mopes around her sister and Lucas, who wonders why she's in a cranky mood when she won the wingman comp. Sonya doesn't get the appeal of Jade's blasé attitude towards relationships and the sisters end up sniping at one another. Jade then ticks off both Sonya and Lucas when she points out that neither of them have the best track record with relationships.
Harold takes out the business card from his front pocket and stares at it before retrieving his phone and finding Toadie's number. He's interrupted when Kate gives him his forgotten change and asks if he's OK. Harold remarks that things are a lot more complicated around here than they used to be and Kate says it's always best to keep things simple. Bearing this in mind, Harold decides not to make the call.
Callum wants to know why Sonya would make such a big promise to him if she was just going to take it back. Toadie doesn't have an answer for him but is thankful that Sonya's finally being honest with them - even if it's not want they want to hear. To cheer his son up, Toadie says they should do go- karting, just the two of them.
Kyle keeps disturbing Jade with his chattering while she's trying to take her turn at pool. He goes on about how the game all boils down to angles
JADE: So what, you're a maths genius now?
KYLE: Angles as in ‘those chicks over there can't see me from this angle'.
He slides past Jade to the other side of the table where a girl at the bar has a better view of his biceps while he takes his shot. Jade says he's good at the whole pick- up thing and wonders why he'd want to ever settle down. Kyle admits he likes a bit of fun but not forever. Jade then says she doesn't see the appeal in letting your guard down and having your heart trampled on, but Kyle thinks it's worth the risk.
Second Commercial Break
Jade doesn't want to be around Kyle any longer and deal with her feelings so she tells him she has stuff to do. But Kyle thinks that means they should head to the gym together and then grab some food. Jade finally lies and says by ‘stuff' she means ‘chat to some guys at the bar', so Kyle smirks and leaves her be. But once Kyle's gone Jade walks straight past the group of men and goes home alone.
Toadie and Callum are in happy moods after returning from their go- karting session. Harold is pleased to see their moods have lightened too, and tells them that he's made a cheesecake to share. He considers informing Toadie about Troy, but not wanting to impede on the boys' good mood, he decides to throw the business card in the bin instead.
Lucas chats to Kate about Jade and Kyle's wingman competition while she works. Kate thinks those two have too much time on their hands.
LUCAS: They threw out all the numbers.
KATE: Don't tell me you went through the bin to get those.
LUCAS: Give me some credit, I'm not that desperate... And I didn't think of it.
Troy walks in and hears them talking about Sonya and Jade, so he introduces himself to Lucas and asks if he knows Sonya. Kate remembers Troy from earlier and Troy says he gave the “old guy” his number to pass on but didn't hear back. He asks Lucas and Kate if they could possibly direct him to Sonya.
Jade gets a call from Kyle but she pretends she's on a date so she doesn't have to talk to him. Sonya sees her sister and they apologise to one another for their fight earlier. Sonya explains her situation with Toadie and says she should take a leaf out of Jade's book - relationships aren't worth it. But Jade says that if Sonya gives up on relationships then the rest of them have no hope. There's a knock at the door and both sisters look alarmed when they see Troy on the doorstep. He greets them with familiarity and Sonya asks what he's doing here but Troy would like to know the same thing.
Third Commercial Break
Troy explains to the girls that a lawyer called his base a few weeks ago asking questions and Sonya's name came up. Sonya asks how Troy knew where she was, but Troy says he was just looking for the lawyer. Jade sarcastically wonders if Troy came all this way for a happy reunion, but Troy replies that he just wanted answers and started to put two and two together.
TROY: Sonya you were pregnant when we broke up.
SONYA: This has nothing to do with that.
TROY: And I never knew what you did. You said you weren't going to have it, but did you? Have I got a kid?
(Tomorrow on Neighbours)
TROY: I've got a son? So where is he now?
SONYA: He's safe and he is happy.
TROY: I want to see him.
TROY: I'm his father.
SONYA: But you're not his dad.
(Sonya confronts Toadie about tracking down Troy)
SONYA: What I want to know is why he came looking in the first place.
TOADIE: I was trying to cover my bases.
TOADIE: Yes, legally, because that's all I've got.
(Toadie asks Harold to keep Troy away from Callum)
(More uniform issues at the school - Summer decides to wear her uniform in protest)
LIBBY: Summer's wearing her uniform.
PAUL: Like a protest?
LIBBY: The policy will fail without us having to lift a finger.
