Toadie arrives to see Sonya, and they hug. She reiterates that she can't remember their wedding day, but Georgia explains short- term memory loss isn't uncommon after a head trauma, and that Sonya's long- term memory seems fine. She remembers right up to going to bed the night before, then gets upset as everything since then is a blank. She asks why Toadie's wearing a suit, and Toadie explains he's been at a funeral the second one this week.
Lou comes in from Rhys's funeral, having endured Priya's yesterday. He reveals to Mason that Sonya has woken up, however; and that she can't remember her wedding day. Mason is desperate for more detail, so much so that Lou seems a little suspicious but then decides it's natural for him to be upset after what happened. Mason says he regrets how things turned out that day, and Lou agrees.
Chris and Kyle return from the funeral, and console themselves with some bottles of beer that Rhys bought before he died. Kyle is worried about Rhys's dad, who is probably on a plane right now, on his way to meet his son. Kyle's tried to contact him, but to no avail so Kyle determines to go and meet Mr Lawson himself, saying it's the least he can do. Chris raises a toast to Rhys.
Georgia comes in from work to find Scotty has prepared a candlelit dinner for her. She suggests they could ask Kyle and Chris to come round since they've had such a tough day, but Scotty quickly knocks that idea on the head saying he and Georgia need some time alone after everything that's happened. He's been thinking about their engagement and suggests they get married this weekend! He reveals he lodged an application a while ago, so the traditional notice period doesn't apply. She happily agrees to elope with him and they hug, but Scotty looks worried over her shoulder.
Toadie shows Sonya pictures from the wedding to help prompt her memory, but it isn't working. Sonya's apologetic, but Toadie tells her it's alright. Sonya spots Mason in the background of one of the pictures; Toadie explains he was working as a waiter. It seems to trigger some kind of vague memory in her, but she's not sure what and Toadie suggests she talk to Mason to see if it helps.
Toadie then shows Sonya a picture of Ajay and Priya, and Sonya gets upset, feeling guilty about all the pre- wedding superstition, and that Priya and Rhys died helping them celebrate. Toadie tells her she just has to be glad they survived, and that they'll help their friends in any way they can.
Georgia breaks the news about her imminent elopement to Kate who promises to keep it quiet, but asks if Georgia's sure it's the right time, given the recent funerals. Georgia says she loves Scotty and that Priya and Rhys' deaths proved that life is too short to put things off. Georgia also insists that her will- they- won't- they with Kyle has no bearing on her decision. Kate hugs Georgia and offers to make her a wedding breakfast.
Rhys's dad Eddie is sitting at a table, when Kyle comes in and introduces himself. Eddie immediately assumes that Rhys decided he didn't want to see him after all, and says he doesn't blame him, after the way Eddie has treated him over the years. But as he gets up to leave, Kyle reveals the truth Rhys has died.
A while later, Kyle fetches Eddie a beer. He's upset about missing the funeral, but Kyle explains Elaine took Rhys's death hard, and says she just wanted it over with. Eddie admits he wishes he knew why Rhys suddenly wanted to see him. In an attempt to help him find out, Kyle passes over an envelope of all Rhys's letters, which Eddie returned to him unopened when Rhys was a teenager. Eddie feels even worse, but Kyle says that at least now he can read what Rhys wanted him to know.
Elaine has told Kyle that he can keep the things Rhys had around the house, so Kyle and Sheila are wondering what to do with Rhys's golf clubs. Kyle wonders if he should give them to Eddie, but wonders whether Rhys would want that. Sheila tells Kyle he should make the decision.
Lauren tells Mason someone else (AKA Margie) will take his order, since she is randomly going to do some shopping in preparation for Sonya's homecoming. Mason pretends to be pleased that Sonya is well enough to come home, though he's secretly terrified she'll remember his role in the Lassiter's robbery attempt. As Lauren leaves, Lou comes in and joins Mason. Seeing Mason's mood, Lou deduces there's something wrong, and asks what it is.
MASON: I've just been thinking a lot lately.
LOU: About what?
MASON: I feel like bad things happen wherever I go.
LOU: Mate, you shouldn't feel like that.
MASON: Why not? It's true I'm a screw- up.
LOU: You're a good kid who's made a couple of mistakes.
MASON: More than a couple.
LOU: Everybody makes mistakes believe me, I should know. It's how you bounce back that counts.
MASON: What if you can't bounce back?
LOU: It's never too late to be the person you want to be. Mason, you'll get over this. As long as you're honest with yourself, and the people who care about you.
Thanking Lou, Mason rushes off suddenly, saying there's someone he has to see.
Angie, Georgia and Nell prepare for Sonya's homecoming. Angie is so busy slagging off Sonya's need to have everything her own way, that she doesn't notice Toadie and Sonya appearing behind her! Georgia's phone rings and Angie picks it up it's the celebrant she and Scotty have chosen, wanting to speak about the wedding! Georgia looks at Angie and Toadie guiltily, her secret spilt.
Later, Mason calls round to see how Sonya is, and she says she's glad he's here explaining how she saw him in the photo and felt like she was remembering something about the wedding day. In the picture, she and Mason look like they are having a serious discussion, and Sonya asks what it was about in the hope that it will help her remember. Mason claims he bumped into her, and accidentally spilt a drink on her dress which naturally doesn't trigger Sonya's memory. She's been told by the doctors that it will likely come back in time, but she thanks Mason for coming round.
Kyle presents Eddie with the golf clubs, explaining Rhys said Eddie taught him how to play golf. Eddie thanks Kyle, saying the gesture means more than he can know.
KYLE: He was tired of being angry at you. He told me that before he died.
EDDIE: He was pretty angry at fifteen. Those letters said it all not that I blame him.
KYLE: Well the fact that he wanted to meet you speaks volumes.
EDDIE: Thanks, mate. That means a lot. What was he like as a young man?
KYLE: Rhys was a determined bloke. He wouldn't take no for an answer.
EDDIE: He was like that as a kid.
KYLE: He always had an opinion. Especially when it came to my love- life.
EDDIE: Did he have a girlfriend?
KYLE: Not at the time. But he did have plenty over the years. He was a bit hard to get to know at first. But once you did, he was a great bloke. He was super- competitive. Loved his soccer and golf. Especially golf.
EDDIE: You got kids, Kyle?
EDDIE: You got family?
EDDIE: Don't ever treat em the way I treated mine. You always think you can fix things tomorrow, but sometimes, tomorrow doesn't come.
Kyle comes in; Sheila tells him she's heard from Angie that Scotty and Georgia are getting married tomorrow, and that they'll be leaving town for good. Kyle's gutted, and Sheila goes to make him a tea. Chris gives Kyle a look.
KYLE: Don't say it.
CHRIS: We have to tell her.
CHRIS: She's our friend.
KYLE: Maybe she's better off not knowing.
CHRIS: How can you say that?
KYLE: Because enough bad stuff's happened around here lately without me having to break her heart as well.
Chris says keeping quiet would be worse, and that they have to tell Georgia who she's marrying. Chris offers to do it, but Kyle says he's closer to Georgia it should come from him.
Kyle turns up to speak to Georgia she admits it's true she's eloping with Scotty. Kyle asks her to sit down, but she prefers to stand.
KYLE: You can't marry Scotty.
GEORGIA: Why not?
KYLE: Because he's not right for you.
GEORGIA: Look, Kyle, it's too late for this. You had your chance, and
KYLE: This is not about you and me. Scotty's into dudes.
GEORGIA: What do you mean?
KYLE: He came onto Chris. More than once.
Georgia laughs it off, saying it can't possibly be true and that if Chris said that, he must be lying. Kyle challenges her to ask Scotty, and he walks in.
SCOTTY: Ask Scotty what?
GEORGIA: Kyle is saying you made a move on Chris!
KYLE: Tell her.
GEORGIA: He's making it up, right?
SCOTTY: Listen, I love you
Distraught at Scotty's non- denial, Georgia rushes out of the house.
