Matt questions Vanessa and Lucas who are frantic. They explain that they had Patrick set up in Mason and Bailey's room and went outside for a few minutes to see the eclipse. Lauren suggests the Willis family might have seen something.
Matt rushes across the road, while phoning the police to report the incident. He introduces himself to Terese and Brad who are unpacking the car. He asks if they saw anyone suspicion. They saw a brown haired woman holding a baby and she was in a hurry. Terese recognised her from a few days ago, she saw her at Harold's store. Matt says it sounds like Steph Scully. He thanks them and rushes home.
Toadie gets off the phone to Karl, saying he'll keep him informed. Matt informs them that the Willis's saw a woman, possibly Steph, taking a baby. Lucas tries to push Matt out the way to go find Steph but Matt stops him. One of them has to stay at home in case Steph tries to contact them. Sonya goes with Vanessa back to the flat. Matt asks Toadie if Karl would give them access to Steph's things.
Mason asks Kate what happened with Brennan. Kate tells the tale, aided by a black and white flashback.
BRENNAN (flashback): I don't want to leave you. Kate, I want you to come with me.
Kate tells Mason that she wanted to go with Brennan, but she had Sophie to think about and she wasn't keen to go. Cue another flashback of Brennan waiting for Kate, and her running in the rain to catch him. Kate says it took the police 6 months for them to get a message through to Brennan, but by then the news came through that he died. Cue another flashback of Supt. Hayes telling Toadie and Kate about Brennan's death.
Kate says she didn't hear all the details about what happened, but Toadie saw all the crime scene photos and it was pretty bad. Kate thinks it's either her mind playing tricks on her, or someone that looks like Brennan.
MASON: I tell you I love you, and the first thing that pops into your mind is your ex.
KATE: Hey, you don't have to worry. I'm sorry I didn't say it back to you straight away, but I love you. I do. Brennan is my past, and you're my future.
Toadie gets off the phone to Lyn, who hasn't heard from Steph. Matt comes out from Steph's room, there's nothing missing, no indication that she's gone and her bike is still in the garage. Toadie tells Matt that Karl found Steph's medication in the bin last night. Matt says he'll pass that information on to Steph's psychiatrist.
Erinsborough Police Station
Kate approaches Kelly Merolli who's busy on the phone. Kate says she thinks she saw Mark Brennan and she wants to see photos of the crime scene. Kelly says she used to work with Brennan, he's a good guy and it's very sad what happened to him, but they're not able to help Kate. Kelly gets back on the phone, mentioning Steph and the Fitzgerald baby. Kelly tells Kate that the baby has been kidnapped. Matt rushes in and checks that Kelly's done everything; she takes him aside and tells him that they've got everything under control.
Police officers are all around Ramsay Street. Lucas, Toadie and Mason decide to search Erinsborough for Steph and Patrick. The Willis family walk over and introduce themselves, offering to help. Toadie decides to print off some pictures of Steph and Patrick for everyone, and Mason offers to put a post on facebook and twitter too. Everyone leaps into action.
Vanessa and Lucas's flat
Vanessa paces nervously. Sonya tries to reassure her but Vanessa wants to know what everyone is doing. Sonya answers the phone to Callum who wants to know where Nell's milk is. Sonya tells him and hangs up, as Vanessa gets upset because it is Patrick's feeding time too.
SONYA: It's okay, she knows what to do. The one thing that I do know for sure is that Steph knows how to look after a baby.
VANESSA: How can she do this? I ask Lucas to cut Steph out of our lives and this is some kind of payback.
SONYA: Just don't say that. Just keep calm, he's going to be back with you soon.
VANESSA: You don't know that. What if we never find him?
Toadie and Lucas get into Toadie's car having checked the garage. Lucas feels like an idiot for defending Steph when everyone was trying to warn him, he ignored the signs. Toadie says that Steph's actions have nothing to do with him. He tells Lucas that Steph had a breakdown in jail. Giving up Adam, getting locked up, losing Charlie, she lost it and has been on medication since. All that matters is they need to find Patrick and take him home.
Brad hangs up posters with Steph and Patrick's pictures on them, while Joshua hands out flyers to people. Brad suggests Joshua go to the pool to do some laps, they have enough people out looking just now. Joshua says he wants to look for Patrick. Joshua asks Brad if he knew Lauren when they were teenagers, so she'll be able to tell Joshua about what a loser Brad was.
BRAD: For your information I was pretty cool.
JOSHUA: I think we both know that's not true.
BRAD: Effortlessly cool actually.
JOSHUA: Effortlessly, really? I don't know, cos you know, you start putting on your Nirvana CDs and start rocking out, I'm kinda scared you're going to hurt someone.
BRAD: Right now I'm scared I'm going to hurt you.
JOSHUA: That'll make you a responsible coach now wouldn't it?
BRAD: You just enjoy the extra intervals tomorrow.
JOSHUA: Yeah, yeah, yeah, whatever.
Outside Grease Monkeys
Imogen is looking at maps to search for Patrick, when Kate comes over. They introduce themselves to each other, realising they live on the same street, and Imogen's mum works for Kate's uncle. Kate asks if she's going to Erinsborough High. Imogen says she and her brother will, although her sister Piper is on exchange in Canada.
IMOGEN: As long as the teachers aren't the usual sort of freaks and washouts it's all good.
KATE: Well teachers actually work pretty hard
IMOGEN: Well that's what they want you to think anyway.
KATE: Well it's the truth.
IMOGEN: There are some good ones, but there are some shockers too. The thing is I'm at school to learn and I don't want to be held back and waste my time with some mediocre losers. That's not too much to ask, right?
IMOGEN: What about you, what do you do?
KATE: I'm a teacher at Erinsborough High
IMOGEN: I'm sure you're one of the good ones.
Terese and Brad meet up, asking if either's got any news. Terese wonders ifs weird for Brad being back here. Brad misses the place, he loved it here when he was the kids age. Brad tells Terese that he had a thing with Lauren when he used to live here. Terese calls him such a heartbreaker and kisses him. They carry on with the search.
Erinsborough Police Station
Lauren brings Matt some lunch. Matt feels like he's not being useful here filing papers, he wished he'd stayed at home and then he could be out looking for Patrick. Matt thinks it's good how everyone is rallying around Lucas and Vanessa, even the new family. Lauren tells Matt that Brad used to live on Ramsay Street when they were in their teens. Matt wonders if there's any stories he should know about, but Lauren says there isn't.
Lassiter's Park/Lassiter's Lake
Joshua checks with Mason about how the search is going. Joshua says when they find Steph they should lock her up and throw away the key, but Mason doesn't think it's that simple. Joshua says it is, if he breaks the rules while swimming, he's disqualified, and the same thing happens if you break the law. He's heard that Steph has already been in prison. Mason tells him to stop talking as he doesn't know what he's talking about. Mason angrily walks off.
Kate is on the phone to Georgia asking about Kyle. There's no improvement in his sight at all, and they're waiting for a specialist. She asks Georgia to give Kyle a big hug from her. After ending the call, Kate takes a photograph of her and Mark out of her purse.
We get a fast paced montage flicking through various locations, from Vanessa pacing in her flat, to Toadie on the phone at Lauren's, Matt at the police station, Brad hanging up posters, Mason asking around at Lassiter's Park, the police on Ramsay Street, Joshua, then back to Lucas and Vanessa's flat.
Lucas and Vanessa's flat
Vanessa says it's been hours and they've got nothing. Lucas assures them they will find him, but Vanessa wonders when. The phone rings, and its Steph. Lucas answers, and asks where Steph is. She tells him that she's home. Vanessa tries to shout over the phone but Lucas begs her to keep quiet. He repeatedly asks Steph where she is but she hangs up. Vanessa and Lucas are devastated.
Vanessa wonders what Steph means by ‘home.' Vanessa says they'll be able to work out where Steph is, the police can trace the call. Lucas doesn't want to get the police involved. He's worried that if the police go in now, he's not sure what Steph is capable of.
Steph picks up baby Patrick.
STEPH: Oh I know, I'm upset with your daddy too. Don't you worry; I'm not going to let anything happen to you, mummy's here. Its okay, it's all good. You're gorgeous little Adam, mummy's gorgeous boy. Guess what, we're going to go and get Charlie and then we'll all be together. Yes we will.
