Its breakfast time for the Kapoors and it's quite manic. Ajay shows Priya the article Bradley wrote about Lucas' VET class and she isn't impressed at the line he's taken.
Kyle is very down in the dumps as he makes his breakfast smoothie. He's impressed though that Harley is up and about and seems shocked at his rush to head to school!
Harley dolls himself up a bit before he meets Rani in the complex and asks if she will wag school with him since he's forgotten his PE kit but he's just pulling her leg.
Paul catches up with Tim on the phone regarding the court case and then brings Kate up to speed about her sister's progress when he runs into her.
Paul catches up with Priya after spotting her when he was chatting to Kate. They chat about Sophie and the agenda for the upcoming board meeting. Susan comes in for her coffee and gets Priya's wrath for the article – even Paul (surprisingly) is on Priya's side too and gives Susan his wrath also!
Paul arrives for the school board meeting and apologises to Priya for what Susan has written and that he will get a retraction printed. Priya doesn't want him fighting her corner but he gives her a compliment – not many people get to run rings round him and she's done that more time than he'd have like to have happened! “Just stay out of my business,” she warns him and adds for no more bottles of champers to be sent either because it makes things awkward explaining it to Ajay. Paul has picked up on this ‘weakness' and asks why she'd feel awkward at an innocent bottle of champagne?
PRIYA: I'm not going to argue about this with you Paul, just stop it.
Harold's Store/Number 24
Priya re- hears what Paul said to her before we cut to the commercial break. She then calls Ajay to tell him how the school board meeting went. He asks her to come home early as he's just about finished (he's having a work at home day) and suggests they have something special for supper tonight since it's just the two of them. “It's a date,” he tells her before putting her on hold to take a work call – and its bad news, he's now got to go into work, but they will still have their special dinner tonight.
Rani and Harley discuss their previous schools before she invites him to join their movie night at Callum's. The two of them are getting on very well with each other but equally acting very coy!
Susan spots Kyle when she enters the bar and apologises for missing Jade's farewell and reassures him that the time will pass quickly. They then begin chatting about how he's getting on with Harley and he replies good.
Despite trying his hardest, Harley can't persuade Rani to wag school and she heads off to the library and he finally starts to eat the sandwich Kyle made for him.
Kate catches him throwing the bag the sandwich was in, on the ground and he refuses to pick it up so she gives him detention (picking up litter) even though he says back that he won't attend.
Kyle asks Susan for some tips on dealing with Harley and she suggests staying firm because kids respect boundaries. It's a good thing he got that advice because Kate calls to let him know what Harley has done.
Harley is refusing to do the detention but Kyle rocks up to make sure he does! Harley tries to turn it around to suggest that its Kate picking on him but he finally gives in when they threaten to go speak to Priya!
Kyle cheers up immensely when he gets a video call from Jade chatting about her journey and how great LA is. They continue chatting and she tells him to warn Harley – if he plays up she'll be on the first plane back!
The house is all set up for a romantic meal for two when Ajay calls to say he's running late and won't make it home for their special night.
Just as she hangs up, she gets a visitor – Paul after some homework for Sophie. He apologises for interrupting dinner and when he compliments the fine smell of what she has cooked, she gives him a doggy bag (he'd mentioned he hadn't yet had dinner). Paul subtly puts the knife into Ajay for abandoning his wife and as he reaches over to get the container she made for him, he's literally inches from her and leans in to kiss her!! Priya pulls back at the very last second and asks him to go, stunned at what almost happened.
Commercial break later and Ajay is home with flowers by way of an apology for missing their special night. She accepts his apology and goes to put the flowers into water when he spots the doggy box and thinks she kept back some for him! “I don't deserve you,” he says to her as he comes up behind her (she's at the skink dealing with the flowers) and hugs/kisses her.
When Ajay goes to take a shower, Priya gets her phone out and sends someone a text…
Paul is dealing with some work issues at the hotel when he gets a text from Priya telling him not to call round again. He asks the silent receptionist to check his schedule for tomorrow and to make an appointment with Priya!
