- Priya's harassment by Brian causes Ajay to soften towards her, and agree to attend counselling
- Karl and Susan's big reunion
- Kyle dumps Jana and heads to Georgia's to confess his feelings, but before he can, Scotty shows up
Kyle watches grimly as Scotty and Georgia talk; she's clearly flummoxed and surprised to see Scotty, and when Kyle gets up to leave, she asks him what he wanted to talk to her about. Kyle makes an excuse and says they can catch up later, before leaving Georgia with Scotty.
Scotty has been talking to Angie, who's convinced him that it's not he and Georgia that's the problem per se, but the geographical distance between them. To solve the problem, Scotty offers to move to Erinsborough. He tells Georgia she's more important than the farm. She's tired and suggests he sleep on the couch, and that they can talk about it tomorrow. Scotty tells Georgia he loves her; she replies that she knows he does.
Karl helps Susan pack up her belongings in preparation for her move back to No 28. They joke about what Tash will make of Susan moving back in, and Susan wonders if Tash might want to sublet the flat instead. They take down the picture of the kids, and Susan says Libby has been asking if they're going to renew their vows again! Karl suggests they put their wedding rings back on.
SUSAN: I threw mine in the lake!
KARL: You what?
SUSAN: I'm joking!
KARL: Well it wouldn't be the first time a ring ended up in that lake!
They each put the rings on the other's finger, in a low- key symbolic ceremony of their own.
KARL: Everything's right with the world.
They kiss, before heading into the bedroom to recreate their honeymoon!
Ajay is watching TV. Priya asks if he's still coming to their counselling session tomorrow; he confirms he is, stating it's important they make their situation work. Rani comes in, bidding goodnight to Ajay but blanking Priya as usual. Ajay tries to hint to Rani that she should say goodnight to Priya too, but Priya lets Rani off the hook.
Kyle's moping on the sofa when Sheila comes out of her room, asking what happened to Kyle's date with Jana. He explains he broke up with Jana, and went to tell Georgia how he feels - but that Scotty beat him to it. Sheila says it might be for the best; rebound relationships are never good, and he'll soon find someone who's as ready for a new relationship as he is.
Paul and Andrew discuss plans for the revamp of Lassiter's, the top two floors of which are to become residential. Andrew has grand ideas about his role in the project, but Paul quickly brings him back to earth by telling him to clean out one of the hotel rooms so they can turn it into a showroom. Sarah comes in to show off the latest edition of the West Waratah Star, now incorporating the Erinsborough News - on one page only! Paul seems a little regretful, but shakes hands with Sarah, who's about to pack up and leave. She winks at him as she bids him goodbye.
SARAH: Until we meet again.
Andrew points out a story in the newspaper about the upcoming solar eclipse, and profoundly compares this to the new Lassiter's luxury apartments, since both represent a 'once- in- a- lifetime opportunity'. Naturally, this rather crude association between a majestic celestial event and the opening of a new block of flats appeals immensely to Paul, as the beginnings of a horrific branding strategy emerge...
Karl and Susan pull up outside No 28.
KARL: Does it still feel like home?
SUSAN: Ah, it always did.
They kiss under the archway.
SUSAN: We should probably get on to those gutters.
KARL: It's on the list!
As Karl unpacks the car, Susan finds her copy of the new- look West Waratah Star on the driveway, and happily drops it in the wheelie- bin.
Sonya and Toadie are waiting inside with a champagne breakfast, to welcome Susan back to Ramsay Street. First out of the car is Helen's portrait of the kids.
TOADIE: You know I swear Billy's eyes follow me around the room.
While Toadie and Karl head back out to the car, Susan and Sonya have a chance to chat. Susan explains it was her conversation with Sonya that made her change her mind about divorcing Karl, and uses the opportunity to reiterate her advice that Sonya shouldn't be holding things back from Toadie - namely her fears about drugs that Angie caused to resurface. Sonya says she will talk to Toadie when they get home. As Karl and Toadie come back in, Sonya looks worried.
Scotty and Georgia discuss the idea of him moving to Erinsborough to resume their relationshp; she wants to know how his dad will manage the farm without him. Scotty insists they can make it work; he could do delivery jobs as he has a truck licence. Georgia doesn't seem thrilled at the idea of him staying, but he thinks the distance was all that was keeping them apart. It's not like either of them have been unfaithful, he adds. Scotty begs Georgia to give him a chance, and she smiles half- heartedly.
Later, Toadie is on the phone, saying goodbye to Sarah before she leaves. Sonya comes in, and Toadie wonders aloud why Susan changed her mind about the divorce so suddenly. Sonya admits it was her conversation with Susan that prompted her to run off and make amends with Karl, but she then claims she can't remember what it was they were talking about. Toadie seems to swallow this and tells Sonya he's proud of her.
Ajay and Priya are back from their counselling session and it appears they've made progress. Ajay has accepted that some of his past actions, whilst borne of good intentions (buying No 24 without consulting Priya, for example), inadvertently hurt his wife and, while they don't excuse her behaviour, they do begin to explain why she was dissatisfied with their marriage. She reaches to take his hand and he pulls back, before touching her bracelet instead. He says they could sell the house and move somewhere without the history. Priya says it's grown on her, but thanks him for asking her opinion.
Dial- A- Kyle
Scotty shows up, and quickly rubs salt in Kyle's wounds. Scotty thanks Kyle for giving him and Georgia space last night, and says she's thinking about them getting back together - and him moving to Erinsborough.
Sonya suggests Georgia should make a list of pros and cons of getting back with Scotty. Georgia goes on about how all her family love Scotty, but Sonya reminds her it's her life, and she needs to do what makes her happy.
Dial- A- Kyle
Scotty suggests that Kyle won't need to spend so much time at Georgia's now he's back on the scene - since he can take care of all the handyman jobs around the place!
Georgia likes the fact that Scotty can build and fix things, and they were going to build a house together. Sonya asks, again, if this is still what she wants. Georgia thinks so.
Dial- A- Kyle
Kyle and Scotty discuss the charity camp- out event; and Scotty asserts his expertise in the field of camping.
No 30 / Dial- A- Kyle
Georgia thanks Sonya for helping her sort her head out, and calls Scotty. She tells him he's right; they should give their relationship another go. Scotty's made up, and tells her he loves her, while Kyle looks on enviously.
While passing through, Karl and Susan see Sarah loading her bags into a taxi. Susan asks Karl to wait, while she says goodbye to Sarah. Karl's surprised, and keeps his distance.
SUSAN: Sarah. Don't take this the wrong way, but - thank you. For helping Karl and me get back together.
SARAH: I did that?
SUSAN: Well, you coming back brought up a lot of stuff for me. If that hadn't happened, I might never have dealt with it.
SARAH: I'm glad. I meant it when I said you two are the couple to be.
Susan wishes Sarah luck, and hopes everything works out back at home for her. Sarah bids her goodbye, and the two part on friendly terms. Susan rejoins Karl.
Rani and Ajay chat, and conversation quickly turns to Priya. Ajay tells Rani that her mum loves her, and that she's trying hard. He explains about the counselling session and says he's learned ways he can help himself improve. Since Priya's not going anywhere, he asks if Rani would consider making more of an effort with her. Rani grudgingly agrees, and Ajay tells her he loves her.
Andrew comes in, dressed in overalls, wanting advice from Kyle about how to get rid of carpet glue. Kyle is grimly amused that Andrew is doing physical labour, and offers to help, but Andrew says he has to do it by himself.
Across the bar, Scotty and Georgia are having a drink. Georgia explains about the camp- out and how it's raising money for the neonatal unit at the hospital. Scotty asks what she's doing about catering, and offers to do a barbecue with homemade sausages, to generate some extra revenue. Georgia thinks it's a great idea, and they kiss. Kyle watches sadly.
Andrew stops by to give Paul a progress update - the hotel room will be cleared out by the end of the day to make way for the showroom. Paul assigns him his next task: to get a quote from the printer's for promotional material. He's gone with Andrew's idea and named the project Eclipse Apartments. Andrew's eager to share some of his other ideas for the launch, but Paul has to take a phone call. The school board has called an emergency meeting; Paul tells Andrew that Priya has a major problem on her hands.
Priya comes in and is pleasantly surprised to find Rani has helped Ajay do her ironing. There's a knock at the door and Paul comes in. He explains about the emergency meeting; the board has convened to discuss Priya's 'inappropriate conduct'. It's not about her affair with Paul, however; Brian O'Loughlin is claiming that Priya has been harassing him! As a result, the board is talking about having Priya dismissed as principal.
