Previously on Neighbours
Rhys taking up the challenge to seducing Jade.
Lucas still thinking he has a chance of getting back with Emilia.
Chris finding out about Michael/Emilia.
Michael and Emilia are making the most of being together (and trying to be affectionate in public without giving the game away) however they spot Lucas coming over so that curtails the mood plus Michael decides to leave. Lucas is happy to see Emilia but she quickly manages to leave him, citing she's meeting Tash for lunch.
Lucas then spots Chris coming with the coffees and discovers that Tash is actually at the beach, but doesn't reveal to him why he is puzzled.
Kate wants Jade to spill over why she is miserable and eventually she reveals the reason she's turned down meeting Kyle's Gran because she isn't ready to do so yet. Jade also adds that she agrees with Rhys too - she can't pretend to be someone she isn't.
Kate tries to warn Rhys to stop messing with Jade and Kyle but he refuses to do as she asks.
Sonya and Emilia make small talk with each other at the counter (over Emilia splitting with Lucas) before the conversation moves onto fertility when Emilia comments on what Sonya is buying. Sonya asks her advice on Wiccan rituals and sweet talks Emilia into coming round to show them the best ritual later on.
Chris is bemused by Lucas asking him about somewhere to take Emilia to but he explains that he thinks she's just making excuses to be in the neighbourhood so she can see him. He tries to subtly chat to Lucas but it falls on deaf ears and he makes a call to her asking her to come and see him as there is a problem with her car.
Sonya has let Toadie in on her plans and he isn't keen at all but she feels they need to give everything a chance! With a bit of charm and persuasion, Sonya manages to get her way!
Lucas catches up with Emilia in the bar and she wants to know what is wrong with her car. He tells her about the tyres and offers to sort it out on the house for him
in exchange for her shouting him lunch. Emilia cites again she is having lunch with Tash and bails on him.
Emilia is setting up her Wiccan ritual on the front lawn even though Toadie would rather they moved it to the back yard out of the eyes of prying neighbours ie. Lucas who has just arrived in Ramsay Street! Lucas eventually takes the hint to leave them alone and she continues.
Kate is impressed at the stained glass Kyle is doing for Toadie's front door and he ropes her into helping him (it's too dusty to do this at #30). She brings up her conversation with Jade and tells him that she will come around if given time.
Rhys is telling Jade about some potential new clients for her boot camp courtesy of some new male nurses at the hospital and she shakes her head when he asks what she plans to do for him in return! Thankfully Kyle's appearance in the bar stops her from actually replying and they head to another table to talk. He concedes that she needs more time before meeting his family and is willing for that to happen even if he isn't exactly happy about it. Jade is at his news and they both depart the bar very happy with each other.
Rhys sits and stews as the lovers chat/depart the bar and remarks to Kate when he too exits the bar
RHYS: Round one to you.
Toadie is surprised to be herded into the store by Sonya but he's there to be rewarded for going through with the Wiccan ritual a burger and chips! Despite being on a junk free diet, Toadie isn't exactly thrilled at this reward, he thought it was something more personal but that's ruled out because he's due to have his next swimmers test and has to avoid any swimmer action for 72 hours in the lead up to it!
Lucas reveals to Chris about Emilia helping Toadie and Sonya and that she obviously lied to save Toadie's embarrassment.
Michael is happy to see Emilia still in the house when he comes home and despite her too being covered in olive oil/water melon is happy to start pashing her!
Chris is still subtly trying to get Lucas off the idea that Emilia is still interested in him but it's falling on deaf ears with Lucas. I'm not giving up without a fight, he tells his apprentice.
LUCAS: I've messed up a lot in my life, I'm not messing up this too. I'm going to ask her out again!
Emilia pleads to have a shower before she gets up to mischief with Michael!
Lucas shouts Chris for the beers/snacks he's had and announces that he is going off to see Michael and shout him a beer.
Michael is stunned when Lucas arrives offering to shout them a beer. Thinking quick on his feet, Michael agrees to come over in an hour as he's got some things to do first and then lies when Lucas remarks that Tash is obviously back from the beach (he can hear a hairdryer on in the background).
Ramsay Street, Number 32 driveway
However moments after Lucas has exited the house, he can hear Emilia's voice! He creeps round to the front window and looking through a gap in the netting, can see Emilia and Michael kissing! Lucas also hears Michael warning Emilia that Lucas has been around and that they need to tell him, which she agrees to.
MICHAEL: It will work out okay. Don't worry.
Chris is surprised to see Lucas back so soon and is told to go by his boss, who then takes his frustrations out on an oil drum before calling Michael and inviting him down to the garage as he's got something to chat to him about!
