Georgia has sought refuge at #22 and Kate makes her a cuppa and she continues to digest the news she was told the previous night, wondering if it's happened before. “Does that make him gay?” she asks Kate but she isn't sure what it classifies him as and wonders if something did happen between Scotty/Chris. “Scotty obviously wanted it to,” Georgia replies and now questions why he proposed if he was thinking about Chris all the time? She then hurriedly removes the engagement ring and throws it onto the table.
Kyle and Chris sum up what a week it's been – a wedding, two funerals and a broken heart! Chris reassures Kyle that he did the right thing telling Georgia and both are adamant she deserves better than Scotty.
Kyle catches up with Georgia in the middle of the street and apologises and explains to her why they hesitated informing her earlier.
KYLE: We didn't want to ruin your moment.
GEROGIA: Some friends you turned out to be.
She walks off to go talk to Scotty, ignoring Kyle's attempts to talk about it more.
Georgia enters the house and calls out for Scotty but he's nowhere to be found. He has left her a note though.
Georgia. I'm sorry. I hope one day you can forgive me. Love Scotty.
She isn't amused at the length of it given how long they were together! Kyle tries to talk to her (he followed her into the house) but she orders him to leave.
Paul isn't pleased he's not finding more about the investigation into the explosion especially as he doesn't want to be the one responsible for it! Kate tries to talk to him about his feelings for Priya but he doesn't respond to her questions. The newly arrived Sophie blanks him too - she's stopped being nice to him now, it's been long enough! Kate has a go at her for blanking him but she refuses to change her stance.
Georgia comes by to tell Chris that Scotty has upped and left. He calls him a knob and that he didn't deserve her. She tries to quiz him about Scotty (and how he could be into men) but he doesn't have the answers she is after.
Susan and Karl are round doing the neighbourly thing – bringing a casserole. Rani reassures them that everything is fine (they think otherwise!) just as Ajay returns with an urn containing Priya's ashes. He then invites them to a tree planting ceremony at the community centre in Priya's memory, which they are honoured to attend.
The Kennedys arrive to join the Ramsay sisters (and Rani/Ajay) and Karl helps Ajay plant the tree. Rani is wearing the dress she wore to the wedding and unlike that day, now loves the dress!
Paul decides to pay the police a personal visit now to see if that will speed up the investigation but Matt tells him things take time. Matt then refuses to give into Paul's demands to be kept constantly up to date on the investigation too; he'll be informed when necessary!
Sophie tries to get Rani to open up, talking to her about her own experiences when her mum died, but she reassures her friend that she is fine and coping well.
Susan admits her concerns about Rani too to Karl and his words of wisdom are they just need to be there when things start to fall apart.
Karl then does his best to encourage Susan to take up the role of Principal of EHS after she gets an email about it but she doesn't want to step into Priya's shoes especially since Rani is still a pupil there.
Georgia is looking through all her letters/cards she got from Scotty trying to find some sort of a signal but can't find anything. She then wonders if it's her, which Kate quickly tells her not to think about and does her best to talk Georgia of going home to talk to him. A flower arrangement then arrives for Georgia but it's not from Scotty, rather Kyle.
Susan catches up with Ajay in the store and asks him about the dress Rani wore. He thinks she wore it as her way of saying goodbye and she raises her concerns to him given that Priya/Rani argued over the dress just before she died and asks him to talk to her about it.
Georgia calls round to thank Kyle for the flowers. He explains that he meant what was in the note – that he is thinking about her. She then says it's too soon to move on (with him) and he quickly says that wasn't what he was meaning in the note. Cue embarrassment on both fronts but he does say he *likes* her and she admits that she does like him (but not as strong as he is to her) but wants a total break from relationships and tells him if someone else comes up (for him) then not to wait.
GEORGIA: Nothings going to happen between us okay. I'm sorry; I'm just trying to be honest about things.
KYLE: Yes sure, no worries.
Karl is over to get Ajay to convince Susan to go for Priya's old job and he's fine to help do that. He makes himself scarce when Rani comes back in with the washing and Ajay seeks out her thoughts on Susan taking up the Principals job. Rani is fine with it and goes to talk to Susan about it but he stops her so they can have a chat. He mentions to her what Susan said but she reassures him that she is fine so he tries a different tact, asking her why she wore the pink dress. She explains that Priya picked it out for her and she thought it was the right thing to do. He tries subtly quizzing her more but she's not saying anything other than she's fed up with everyone asking how she is.
RANI: I'm fine, I promise.
Rani helps Susan in with the shopping and tells her to take up the Principals job. Susan still doesn't think so, but Rani urges her too as she's the best person for the job and Priya would say so too. “Thanks, that really means a lot,” she tells Rani and then touches her hair. Rani remarks that is what Priya would do too and as Susan pulls her in for a hug, hoping that she'll break down/open up, it's as if Rani suddenly comes to and realises that it's not time yet to do that, and quickly heads out of the house.
Paul stands looking at the tree Ajay planted earlier and just as he is about to touch it, Ajay suddenly appears ordering him not to touch it! Not only does he not want Paul touching the plant, he also wants him to stay away from it. Paul explains that he is simply paying is respects, which Ajay doesn't like and accuses him of literally being the one to kill Priya just to save a few bucks.
AJAY: I've got to spend the rest of my life, my whole life, without my wife. My daughter, my teenage daughter's got to spend the rest of her life without a mum because of you. You killed my wife and I'm going to make sure you pay for it but what's most important to you? Your bank balance? When I'm done with you, you won't have anything left.
Paul doesn't reply and instead walks off an almost ‘broken man' trying hard not to cry.
