- Sonya throwing Angie out of the house.
- Paul telling Priya about an emergency school board meeting and why.
Ajay wants to rush off to the police but Paul tells him it's too late, a formal written complaint should have been put in when it first happened. Paul then tries to support Priya, which goes down like a lead balloon with Ajay especially when he discovers that Paul knew about the obscene messages before he did.
Paul departs to go to the meeting (promising to defend Priya) and Ajay gets his chance to reassure his wife that the other board members will see through these claims too, promising to be right by her side to back her up.
Toadie is surprised that Sonya didn't do more wedding planning while he was away but she replies that she had her hands full. He then suggests they have a church wedding (he feels given his track record that he needs the big man onside!) and much to his surprise, she agrees to it explaining that she couldn't care where they get married, it's the vows that mean the most to her. Sonya is extremely tense and isn't helped by Jellyfish not settling either, so she decides to take bubs with her to a meeting at the nursery, leaving Toadie in charge of organising their wedding.
Sonya's meeting is actually with Lucas about the stress she's under following Angie's accusation. When she reveals she is going to a meeting this afternoon, Lucas immediately volunteers to accompany her but strongly urges her to come clean with Toadie.
Kate/Mason continue their getting to know each other phase by compare families before he asks her out on a date so she can get more info from him. “I'm busy,” she pleads!
Despite it being a closed meeting, Priya (accompanied by Ajay) turn up. He leaves to go get a coffee just as Paul comes rushing over to tell her she can't be at the meeting and reiterates that he will defend her at the meeting despite the ironicness of it all. They are both then surprised to see the regional director (Ron Coulson) arrive and Paul leaves her to go find out what he wants.
Toadie runs through the roles people will have at the wedding with Callum although he's not happy at being page boy! He asks if Rani can come (allegedly to even up the numbers) and is told to clear it with his mum. Just at that she arrives back and he mutters something to her about it before heading to his room. Sonya though is still pre- occupied and when Toadie tries to talk wedding, she tells him that she has something to tell him about the real reason why Angie went back to Colac.
During the commercial break, Sonya has obviously told Toadie what his mum said and he is furious, wanting to go and call her about it until she stops him to confess that Angie wasn't out of line as she is struggling. She continues by telling him that she's become obsessive to be the perfect mum for Nell because of her experiences with Callum. Toadie reminds her that she is a totally different person now, which Sonya agrees with but adds that she is getting herself worked up.
SONYA: I'm starting to remember what I used to do to escape it.
TOADIE: Are you worried you are going to relapse?
SONYA: No, no, no, not seriously but Angie's accusations just reminded me that it's always going to be there, that's all.
Toadie admits he had no idea [she felt like that] as she didn't say anything and she reminds him it isn't exactly easy to drop it into conversation plus she was scared of what he'd think.
TOADIE: Don't be scared. I'm here to support you, whatever you need.
“Thank you,” a teary Sonya replies and tells him about the meeting she is going to attend and he tells her never to be ashamed to go to him about anything.
Bailey/Mason still no idea of where the gnome has got to despite hunting high and low in the house for it. Vanessa drops by to see if she can unearth some baking equipment she can't find and innocently drops into the conversation about having a clear out last week for the council to pick up. Bailey tentatively asks if that included a gnome, it did, and when Vanessa leaves the boys depart too for the tip.
Lucas tells Vanessa about accompanying Sonya to counselling and admits that he sought help too when he was struggling recently. She seeks his permission to make a donation to the NICU fundraising, which he is only too happy to agree to.
The Kapoors sit waiting for news when Brian appears. Ajay rushes to stop Priya assaulting him but she lets her mouth do the talking instead, however he totally rejects all her allegations especially since she's got no proof of the text messages since she deleted them. Brian's “plan” of provoking Priya has worked as she is getting up quite a bit of steam just as Paul and the regional director exit the school.
Mason rejects the chance to come in and wait for Chris (to talk about the garage job) because if he did, he'd have seen the gnome in the kitchen as Sheila has been sprucing him up.
Priya finds out from the director that until all investigations has been investigated (there is Paul's existing one too despite him trying to get it withdrawn) then she is suspended from the school.
The director leaves and Paul explains he tried his best. “They can't fire you though,” Ajay tries to pacify Priya with but Paul explains that they can kill her career instead by demoting her and transferring her to another school, one far away. Brian comes out of the school to do his gloating, trying to almost goad Ajay into reacting until Priya stops him.
Sonya is in a much better mood now thanks to her meeting, even agreeing to Cal getting a suit for the wedding too. Rani asks if she should wear a particular colour too, there isn't, before she heads home for supper.
With Sonya now in a clearer frame of mind, wedding planning is back on and after a bit of negotiation, they compromise and agree to get married in a chapel.
Mason plucks up the courage to ask Lucas about the job and is told to call by tomorrow.
Kate has overheard the conversation and is impressed at Mason but Amber thinks its all talk. She also reveals that Lauren has been trying to get him back into school but Kate thinks at 21, he'll struggle as a mature aged student. Amber then reveals that he is only 18 and Kate tries hard not to see that she's stunned!
Rani comes home telling her parents about the invite to the Rebecchi wedding. She heads off to her room and they discuss when to tell her about what happened at the school.
Priya is getting worked up about the accusations and the battle ahead. “I'm sorry,” she tells Ajay and he reassures that they will get through this together before adding that he loves her. Priya is literally speechless at hearing that, so he follows it up with “always have” before leaning into her and kissing her tenderly.
Kate confronts Mason and informs him she doesn't date teens! Mason isn't taking her decision lying down and thinks that one day she will agree to go out with him and won't notice the age difference.
KATE: In your dreams!
