- Chris tells Aidan that he lied to his dad, Aidan says if he wants to be a couple then he has to tell him at some point.
- Summer sees a naked photo of Tash that had been leaked.
- A group of guys call Tash a prawn.
- Sonya decides to stop trying for a baby.
- Rhys tells Sonya and Toadie that she's pregnant.
Toadie and Sonya are ecstatic that they are pregnant. Sonya says they should wait for the twelve week scan to tell people, to make sure everything's okay. They continue to talk excitedly about the baby, Sonya says she'll need to stop any heavy lifting at work, change the soil to organic, and Toadie says he'll have to get rid of the new car.
Callum enters, wondering what is going on. They say it's nothing, and Callum leaves, suspicious of their behaviour. Sonya tells Toadie that they shouldn't tell Callum just yet, until it's certain. They whisper excitedly about having a baby and do a quiet celebratory dance before kissing.
It's the next day and Tash is searching her purse for change. Jade enters and asks Tash if she's heard from her dad. Tash hasn't but the agency sent an email saying it wasn't sold, so it's probably okay for her to keep renting it.
As Jade leaves, Chris enters. Tash talks to him about finding a third person to rent with them, but Chris is still worrying about Aidan. Chris had texted Aidan twice last night but hasn't got a reply. Tash suggests they plan his birthday next week but he isn't in the mood, and leaves.
Chris asks Aidan how the blood- drive went, Aidan says it went well and thanks him for bringing in the extra donors. Aidan hasn't checked his phone yet as the hospital was very busy at work last night. Chris offers taking Aidan out for some food later, he wants to take him somewhere special... Harold's.
CHRIS: There are a lot of people that I know who go there day in and day out. They'll see us together, and I won't care
AIDAN: Until your dad walks in and then I'm just some friend of your housemates.
CHRIS: I just, I thought it was a start.
Chris begins to leave, but Aidan tells him they'll have brunch, and he'll see him there at Eleven.
Kyle is taking some bags of soil, Sonya says she won't be using that type of soil anymore, she says that organic soil is better for the environment. Sonya hugs Kyle and thanks him for his help, walking away giggling.
Toadie is hugging his car for one last time when Karl walks past.
KARL: Jarrod, is there something I should know? Your car, it looks like it's getting physical.
Toadie says he's getting rid of it, telling Karl they're trying to save money, Karl assumes it's for their trip to Europe, reminding Toadie about it. When Karl asks if he's alright, Toadie says he's never been better and kisses Karl on the cheek.
Toadie reminds Sonya about their trip to Europe which they've booked but not paid for yet, and they'll have to say something to Callum.
They call Callum out from his room and explain they have to cancel because they don't want him to miss any school. They promise they'll make it up to him, but he leaves annoyed. Toadie says he hates lying to Callum, while Sonya says soon he will understand, while Callum secretly listens on.
Toadie and Sonya wonder if Callum believed their story about the trip.
Callum tells Sophie that Toadie and Sonya lied to him. Karl enters and asks Callum why he looks upset, assuming Toadie told him about selling the car. Sophie suggests that Toadie & Sonya must be having money problems. Callum says he needs to help them somehow.
Jade finds Tash sitting on her own outside Charlie's, and ask where Chris is. Tash talks about how difficult it has been to find a third housemate, Jade jokes that she doesn't want to end up living with a total nutjob.
As Jade leaves, the guy sitting at the table next to Tash introduces himself as ‘not a nutjob.' The guy, Mason, offers to buy Tash a coffee, saying he knows her as he was sent a hot photo of Tash. Tash walks away.
Chris and Aidan are having lunch, Karl greets them.
CHRIS: We're on a date. A date, you know a proper one, just the two of us. Just so you know.
KARL: Oh, good for you. Well I'll leave you to your date
CHRIS: Cos that's what it is.
AIDAN: I don't think he got the message.
CHRIS: You don't think he realised THAT WE'RE ON A DATE! Maybe I should make a banner or hold up a sign or something.
AIDAN: You're an idiot.
CHRIS: It's good to see you smiling again.
AIDAN: Didn't you hear, we're on a date
TASH: Oh good, I'm starving
Tash pulls up a chair but Chris leads her away.
CHRIS: I just want to spend some time with Aidan without you following us around
TASH: Follow you around?
CHRIS: Sometimes that's how it feels. Okay
Tash leaves upset.
Tash bumps into Mason again. She tells him to leave her alone, and runs off crying, Jade runs after her. Tash tells Jade that guy wanted to take her to coffee but she wasn't interested. When Jade suggests there must be more to it, Tash tells her it is none of her business and to leave her alone.
Jade approaches Chris and Aidan, Chris happily tells Jade that he and Aidan are on a date, but Jade is concerned about Tash. Chris says he's to blame because he told Tash that they needed some space. Jade says there was a guy outside, and Tash bit his head off. Aidan says Tash has been acting strange around guys the last few weeks, suggesting she's scared of getting involved. Chris offers to go talk to Tash, but Jade says she'll do it.
Tash is sitting on the bridge. Jade sits down with her. Tash tells her that the guy had ‘that' photo of her. Tash says it's never going to go away, and when she used to make a mistake her dad was around to help make things better.
JADE: You don't need your dad to make everything better.
TASH: I hang out with guys like Chris and Aidan because they're safe.
JADE: And the more you hang out with them, the less available you are to guys who might be interested. Guys that might end up hurting you one day. I was with this guy once, he turned out to be a complete jerk, he thought violence solved everything.
TASH: He hit you? What did you do?
JADE: Eventually I found the courage to walk away from him. I took up self defence and spent the rest of my life avoiding relationships, until now.
Jade says that she doesn't need a guy to sort things out for her, she can do that herself, and while it's hard to do things on your own, that's how life is sometimes.
TASH: I can't believe I'm taking advice from someone in lycra
JADE: There's the Natasha I know.
Jade tells Tash she doesn't need anyone else, she should get up and kick some butt.
It's Callum's day off but he's offering to help out for free, suggesting Sonya pays him back when everything's under control again. A customer comes wanting to buy some soil. Callum offers to carry it to the customer's car, free of charge. As they leave, Toadie comes by and he and Sonya excitedly whisper about having a baby.
Jade arrives looking for Kyle, Kyle tells Jade that Sonya's changing to organic soil which is going to cost a lot for her. Meanwhile, Karl is buying plants for Callum.
At that moment the phone rings and it's Rhys. Callum passes on the phone to Sonya, asking if everything is alright, Sonya says it must be about the blood drive yesterday. While Sonya answers the call, Callum listens on. He sees them looking thrilled, and mentioning the twelve week scan. When the phone call ends, Callum asks if Sonya's sick and that's why she needs a scan. He then asks if she's pregnant, and can tell from their reaction that they are. Callum exclaims that she's pregnant, and as luck would have it, Karl, Kyle and Jade are all around to hear.
They all gather around and offer congratulations.
