Previously on Neighbours
Jade denying she likes Kyle.
Rhys chatting to Kyle about Jade.
Callum hoping nobody feels like he does (after finding out about Mark's death).
Toadie wanting to talk to Kate.
Toadie leads Kate into the station and she is immediately fearful about what has happened. Supt. Hayes appears and beckons them into his office and she hesitantly enters.
Watching on from outside the office, Supt. Hayes breaks the news to Kate about Mark before she then fleas the station.
Outside of Police station/mural
Kate is in a trance as she exits the station and Toadie quickly catches up with her when just at the supplies table for the mural. He sits her down and admits that he knew earlier but wasn't allowed to tell her. Toadie tries to hand over a card for grief counselling (Hayes' suggestion) but she ignores the card and heads off alone for a walk.
Number 26 backyard
Jade gives Kyle tips on how to hang the washing up as they hang the laundry up. Rhys joins them and suggests doing up the backyard and buying a BBQ. Jade isn't keen on contributing as she fears it's more for Rhys' benefit (so he can entertain) and Kyle is watching his pennies too but offers to tidy up the yard as his contribution.
Kyle leaves to do a job and Jade worms it out of Rhys that the main reason he wants the BBQ is that the head of surgery likes to hang out with the staff afterhours – and he wants to play the game to stay ahead. Jade thinks it's a great idea… and her contribution will be paying for the snags!
Toadie apologises for being late home and explains why – he was telling Kate, so they don't need to keep it secret any more. Cal asks if Sophie knows and Toadie replies that is up to Kate.
Kate is still in a trance but somehow manages to make it to Ramsay Street (in bare feet too).
She then enters her home and puts the kettle on for a cuppa but has difficulty doing the simplest of tasks like opening the box with the teabags in it. In her frustration, she swipes the countertop clear causing her mug to smash in the process.
Commercial break later and Sophie comes home to find Kate clearing up the broken mug. She goes on and on about wanting to go to music camp and Kate asks her abruptly to stop talking about it. “You're so annoying,” Sophie remarks and is happy to head to her room when Kate asks for some peace and quiet.
Cal wants them to do something for Kate but Sonya is more concerned how he is taking the news. She tries to reassure him that they aren't going anywhere and Cal replies that is what Mark would have thought too! “You can't think like that,” she tells him but equally encourages him to talk about it for as long as he feels necessary. Cal then suddenly asks if they have biscuit mix – he wants to make some biscuits for Kate and the duo head off to the kitchen.
Rhys presents Jade with some figures for a BBQ - $350 each! Jade still isn't budging and Rhys thinks it's something else I.e. Kyle and even volunteers to have a word with him on her behalf! That goes down like a lead balloon and she storms off, leaving her newly arrived lunch on the table… which Rhys decides to eat instead!
Sonya calls round with the biscuits and tells her it was Callum's idea. She then mentions that she knew earlier too - this surprised her but she doesn't react. Indeed she doesn't react either when Sonya hugs her and she seems relived when Sophie comes out of her room and can curtail the conversation – including having to stop Sonya from talking more about it.
Soph heads back to her room with the biscuits and Sonya asks why she didn't say anything but Kate doesn't want to tell her and convinces Sonya that she has a lot to do so that she leaves the house.
It's a different story though when we head back after the commercial break to find Kate lying on her bed, reliving the last minute dash to be with Mark and how distraught she was at getting the ‘I love you' text when she was too late.
Sophie enters her room (Lou wants to know what to cook for supper) and brings her out of her reverie by commending on how dirty her feet are. “I lost my shoes,” Kate explains, which Sophie doesn't get, and after putting on a pair of shoes, leaves to go for another walk much to Sophie's bemusement about what is going on.
Toadie arrives back from work to head to the cinema but Cal announces that they aren't going any more – he made biscuits for Kate instead and that Sonya took them round. Cal confirms he is doing fine and that he chatted with his mum about it. Toadie then hands over a pressie for Callum – a laptop, which the lad is thrilled to have – it's by way of an apology too for Toadie not being around as much as he would have liked.
Sonya comes into the livingroom and doesn't seem too impressed at Toadie buying the lappy for Callum!
Number 26 garage
Rhys has gone and bought the BBQ (more like a fancy cooker!) and Kyle is very impressed as he tries to assemble it. Jade appears and Rhys again tries to get her to fork up but she isn't budging and she isn't volunteering to put it together either.
Jade has roped Rhys into helping her get dinner (it's really so he doesn't say more about Kyle/herself really that she asked him to accompany her) and has donated the loose change towards what he paid for the BBQ. They swap places with Toadie and Sonya who are there to get the ingredients for dinner. As they shop, he gets Sonya to get it off her chest that she is annoyed at him buying the lappy for Callum. She thinks its time with him that Callum needs and shouldn't feel that he has to buy expensive pressies all the time but Toad replies that he simply wanted to see Callum smile again - which he did upon getting the lappy!
Kate is working on the mural despite it being pitch dark. Noah appears and remarks about the time too and she replies that she needed to get out of the house. He then really worries when she starts covering parts of the mural in black? paint and eventually takes the paint brush away from her!
While he is at the table putting the brush back, Kate starts crying, so he turns round and asks what is wrong, but instead of replying, she just hugs him and cries even harder… before she pulls back and begins pashing him! Noah isn't exactly recoiling and the camera pans up to show what has also captured the kiss – Summer's time delay camera!
During the commercial break, the pashing has stopped and the duo sit on a bench. Noah reaches for Kate's hand and laces his fingers through hers and asks if she wants to go elsewhere - like somewhere to eat if she is cold. “I have to go,” is Kate's response and she tries to get away from him as quickly as she can even though Noah seems to be trying to prolong their contact. He leans in to kiss her but Kate pulls away before anything happens and as she finally leaves (promising to call him although it's more said to appease him than actually meaning it), Noah has a grin on his face like a Cheshire Cat!
