Paul suspicious of Ajay. Ajay tells him that he doesn't want to associate himself with the paper during his campaign.
Paul refuses to give Andrew a loan.
Andrew is cross that Paul won't lend him $1000.
Paul offers Summer a job. Andrew is cross. Paul points out that Summer worked hard and got the job all by herself.
Summer arrives for her first day at work at the Erinsborough News. She is greeted by Susan who shows her to her new desk. Summer is delighted to discover that she has her own desk and that her email is already set up.
Paul comes out and snipes at Summer a bit, telling her to get on with things, but she isn't phased.
Andrew is having a meeting with the promoter. She tells him that ticket sales for the Red Cotton gigs aren't going well (hang on - didn't he only start selling yesterday?!) and tells him if they don't pick up, she'll pull the plug! She doesn't think social media is a good way to promote the band(!). Andrew tells her not to worry - things will pick up.
Later at No.22
Chris and Andrew are discussing marketing for Red Cotton. Andrew says he needs some sort of stunt, but he's already spent the $1000 so he doesn't have any left. He wonders if he could ask Summer to do an article. Chris tells him it's not fair to ask her - she's worked hard to get her job and he shouldn't be asking her for personal favours in her first week. Andrew says that Red Cotton are local so it falls into the category of local news anyway! Chris points out that Paul has a point - Andrew *is* relying on family and friends rather than sorting things out for himself.
Andrew is on the phone to various companies asking them to put posters up, resorting in desperation to giving away 2 for 1 tickets. Paul comes in and Andrew pretends that everything is fine and there are only a few tickets left. Paul says he hopes Andrew will be successful as he's risking Kate's money. Andrew says there's no risk!
Andrew comes in looking for Summer. She excitedly tells him about having her own desk and that she's put two articles online already. Andrew asks her to look at an article he's written - he wants her to run in online. Summer doesn't think it would be professional and Red Cotton are already in the listings. She's worried Paul would hold it against her. Andrew keeps on at her though, telling her she's his last chance.
Summer is looking worried. Susan asks if she's OK and Summer tells her about Andrew's article. Summer says she wants to help Andrew out, but it will make her look bad - after all, Andrew is the editor's son and it will look like nepotism. Susan tells her to trust her instincts - if it doesn't feel right, it probably isn't, and at the end of the day it'll be Summer's name on the article, not Andrew's.
Callum comes in with a delivery for Summer from Andrew. Summer is initially suspicious, but Callum says Andrew did put the order in last night. Summer is pleased and when she opens the card it reads, "Good luck on your first day x x". She softens.
Susan sees Ajay and Priya. Susan asks Ajay for a statement about the police station merger - they've had a lot of comments from the public about it. She wants Ajay to make a formal response. He says he'll have something for her by the end of the day - everyone will hear the facts minus the hysteria.
Ajay has somehow set up an impromptu barbecue(!) Chris tells Callum off for pushing in front of him - noone gets between Chris and food! Then some police send Callum to the back of the queue!
Ajay goes over and offers Lou a sausage. He asks Ajay if they're curry flavoured which Ajay just laughs off. He assures Lou they're 100% Aussie beef!
Paul comes up ready to ask Ajay some tough questions.
Ajay starts his speech.
AJAY: Thanks to everybody for coming along today, we're really excited to have so much community support for this new project (Hmm yes, 20 people who were free food!)
PAUL: This is the strangest funeral I've ever been to. Here we have the death of the local police station and yet Mr Kapoor is celebrating!
AJAY: We're not here to create headlines Paul. We're here to talk about the police station.
PAUL: No, you're here to push through a merger without anyone having asked teh hard questions.
AJAY: I'm more that happy to answer anyone's questions. That's why I'm here.
PAUL: Alright then, answer this. Will police numbers fall when the station is closed?
AJAY: No. No officer will lose his or her job.
PAUL: You're not answering the question. Now, there will be less administrative staff, admit it.
AJAY:(lightly) Yeah, that's true. Let's talk about some other facts. Because of the money we save, there'll be more efficiency. There'll be more outreach programmes at the new Community Centre and there will be more police officers on the street, which means that we as a community will be safer. And isn't that what we all want?
ASSEMBLED COMMUNITY MEMBERS: Yeah! You betcha!
AJAY: I mean, that's why there's so many police officers here today to support the merger. So Paul, why don't you try a sausage? I'll take a break and we can look over the figures together.
PAUL: Don't try and shut me down! I'm speaking for the whole community.
LOU: I think we can speak for ourselves, thanks, Paul! Now, it seems to me that you've made your point, Ajay's made his, so why don't you give us a bit of shush so we can all sit down and digest. And speaking of digestion, these snags are great! 100% Aussie beef!
AJAY: Thank you, Lou, there's plenty more where these came from, everybody enjoy!
Paul stomps off.
Susan thinks that Paul might have met his match in Ajay - Paul says that Ajay was just manipulating the crowd. Susan accuses Paul of holding a personal grudge and says she plans to write a balanced story.
Summer comes in to pitch a new idea for the Entertainment Blog. She wants to do a feature on local bands. Paul is immediately suspicious, but Summer somehow talks him around saying she plans to talk about other great bands that have come out of the Melbourne suburbs. Paul tells her to go for it.
Summer shows her article to Andrew, and he says he's delighted that she's comparing Red Cotton to great Aussie bands and giving their gig a plug. He's not so pleased that it'll only be online, not in the paper itself. Summer says it's the best way to reach his demographic, and it's already been retweeted on Twitter by music accounts. Andrew thanks her for helping him out.
Susan and Paul see Ajay. He apologises to Paul - he didn't mean to embarrass him in front of the crowd. Then he asks if he can rent Toadie's old office. Paul doesn't want to rent it to him, despite Susan chipping in saying it's been empty for ages.
Chris is reading the online article about Red Cotton and says that Summer's done a really good job. Unfortunately most of the comments on the article are not good - a few are indignant about Red Cotton being mentioned in the same breath as "great Aussie bands". Andrew says he's going to get them removed.
Andrew asks Summer to take the comments down. She says she can't - it's her job to create debate online, and it'll be good publicity for the band. Andrew starts saying that Summer shouldn't have compared Red Cotton to big Aussie bands. Summer points out that Andrew was quite happy with it before!
ANDREW: Whatever. Now when it does fall through, at least I'll know why.
SUMMER: I risked my job for you.
ANDREW: And this is now my job on the line.
SUMMER: That is completely different. Organising some gig is not a real job!
There is a pause.
ANDREW: Don't you start.
SUMMER: I didn't mean for it to sound...
ANDREW: You're never, ever going to give up on this, are you?
SUMMER: I'm sorry.
ANDREW: You know, it is the same thing over and over again. You don't believe in what I do, you don't respect it, and you don't respect me.
SUMMER: That's not true...
ANDREW: It *is* the truth. Otherwise you wouldn't keep on saying it.
SUMMER: Just let me explain...
ANDREW: No! You've said enough.
He stalks out.
After sixteen years, Ramsay Street's most horrifying secret is about to come out...
(Tash find a paper which reads, "My fault Helena died")
Tash confronts Michael and Emilia:
TASH: Who's responsible for what happened to Mum! (to Michael) Did you know she did this?!
MICHAEL: That day at the beach...we were, um...
EMILIA: Michael, don't...
Tash has discovered her world is based on a lie...
