Previously on Neighbours
- Ajay telling Jade about an opportunity for her to go to LA.
- Kyle declaring to Jade he wouldn't know what he'd do without her.
- Karl informing Rhys he's only got a 5% chance of a full recovery.
- Vanessa requesting some space from Sonya.
Sonya decides she's had enough of talking to Toadie over what happened with Vanessa and asks that they change the subject. Toadie then broaches the subject of a name for Jellyfish – Angie's sent in a list of possible baby names (she's been reading a book on them!) for them to consider. Cal comes in and after hearing what they are talking about, announces he has the perfect name for Jellyfish – Callumina.
SONYA: Give me that list!
It's clear that neither Toadie nor Sonya like his suggestion!
Kyle and Lucas are debating whether Bossy can actually fetch or not as its hit and miss whether she goes to get the ball he throws.
Jade comes out of #26 on- route to a session with Karl and she subtly asks Kyle if he'd take off on a trip like Karl intends on doing. He makes it clear that ‘no' is the answer for a multitude of reasons.
Jade drops by to show Sonya the US offer that Ajay gave her and to see what her advice is on it. Sonya gets very teary when she begins to read it and blames it on her hormones but Jade is quick to reassure her that she will be in constant contact. “But you won't be here,” Sonya replies but Jade explains it's a big thing for her. Both then end up crying as they hug, as the realisation sinks in that Jade is leaving.
Sonya looks through the Ramsay Street book and comes across a very old photo of Mrs Mangel and seems to be taken with the name ‘Nell'.
Jade finishes putting Karl through his paces and she reassures him he will cope with the trip. Karl starts talking to her about his trip and it gives her more food for thought.
Rhys thanks Vanessa for her support lately as he's about to head off to get his hand tested again but looks like it might not be good news for when he picks up his cup with the dodgy hand, he can't control it. Vanessa blames it on the cup being wet but Rhys is already starting to fear the worst.
Karl spots Rhys in early for his appointment and wants to get started but Rhys is actually looking to delay it to give himself more time for rehab, however Karl can sense what is going on and tells him that he needs to do the tests so he knows where he stands. Reluctantly Rhys agrees and Karl heads off to get the ball rolling.
Karl begins the testing.
Cal tries to get Susan and Lou onside with his name choice but is firmly told no! He then reveals his second option – Calamari! But that again is vetoed!
Sonya joins them and reveals she's found the perfect name for Jellyfish – Nell! Toadie is onboard with her choice too and even Cal seems to approve. Susan then twigs that she must be related to Sky and Joe and asks Lou if he knows her. “Just briefly,” he lies and explains that she was Harold's landlady.
SONYA: What was she like? I wouldn't want to name the baby after you know… She nice?
LOU: Nell was unforgettable! Everyone knew who Nell Mangel was.
SONYA: That settles it.
TOADIE: Nelly it is.
Karl is back with some machine to check if it will corroborate the manual tests that were done earlier. These seem to be giving a much different result to the earlier tests, mainly because Rhys can't exaggerate these ones.
Jade decides it's time to talk to Kyle about the boot camp and LA. He's rapped at the news until he discovers she's off to LA for 6 months. Jade so wants to go but Kyle heads to the yard for some thinking time.
Rhys is eager to get his results but Karl is busy with other patients and adds too that they probably haven't been loaded into the system yet.
When Karl heads into the consulting room with his next patient, Rhys moves to a computer and goes to read the results for himself and can see the conclusion is that there has been NO DEMONSTRABLE IMPROVEMENT.
Dial- a- Kyle
Jade watches on concerned as Kyle is taking out his frustrations on some wood - some random punter stops and asks for some firewood!
Vanessa is still under the impression that Rhys doesn't know the results and brings him a camomile tea to calm him down.
Sonya and Toadie arrive and make a beeline for them to again apologise. She tells them that they've picked out a name for Jellyfish – Nell or Nelly. “You can't be serious!” Vanessa replies and reveals Nell is the name she's chosen too if she has a girl (it's a family name). Sonya suggests Ella and then Rhys suggests they both use the same name which is met with a resounding “NO” from both mums to be! Vanessa reminds Sonya that although she doesn't know what she is having yet, she is due before her. Toadie decides a tactical withdrawal is best and they go find their own table as Vanessa mutters “unbelievable” to herself.
Kyle arrives home and Jade announces she isn't going to LA but he is adamant she is going and that they will be fine. “It's only six months,” he reminds her and reassures her that things will be fine between them especially after all they've been through this year.
KYLE: We're going to make this work. I promise.
Rhys is back to hear the results officially... and they are the total opposite of what we knew was coming! Karl is chuffed for his colleague and we get a flashback to Rhys changing the results from the one he saw (and didn't want) to the one he wanted.
Final commercial break later and Karl returns with some good news for Rhys – Jessica was so impressed with his news that she wants Rhys to assist her in an operation straight away. Rhys tries to get out of it but Karl sends him off in the direction of the theatres.
