Georgia suggests to the others (Kyle, Kate and Mason) that since the weather is due to turn bad (a storm) that they have a pizza and DVD night. Everyone agrees with her suggestion but Mason eyes Kate suspiciously when he sees her hiding a DVD. Eventually he manages to sneak through and retrieves the DVD that she has tried to hide.
Number 26 backyard
Kyle and Chris are preparing the backyard for the storm when Mason comes out to ask them about the DVD and turns out it's a story based on a couple having problems when the male character has a one night stand. Kyle tries to play down the storyline and its connection to Kate but Mason is getting frustrated especially as he doesn't know who it was and feels its driving them both crazy.
Kyle comes in to tell Kate she needs to tell something to Mason because it's driving him crazy (and making him feel like dirt). He also tells her about Mason finding the hidden the DVD too.
KYLE: You're both pretending you're over it but you are kidding yourselves.
He then suggests telling Mason that it was Brennan who she slept with, since Georgia already thinks that too. Kate thinks that's a stupid suggestion given they broke up over him but Kyle reckons it's the best.
Number 22 backyard
Josh works out with the weights but thinks more about Amber than the weights.
Number 32 backyard
Josh comes over to confront Amber about the fact she knew how much swimming meant to him but still wanted to go out with him. She is quick to remind him that she isn't the one lying to his swimming coach!
JOSH: I told you I had to tell the coach that. I thought I'd finally found a girl who gets it, who likes me for me, who's the most awesome girl I have ever met, who's fun, and sweet and beautiful. I really thought that you and me could have something.
JOSH: But I guess I was wrong.
However it's him who is wrong, when he used the word ‘beautiful', that got her attention and she begins pashing him.
Kyle places the pizza order although Chris bails because he's got a date with someone he met at TAFE. Mason asks what video they are watching and throws down the one Kate tried to hide (having a hissy fit about it too) after Georgia suggested some other DVD. Kate quickly tells him to go to the kitchen so they can talk.
Kate demands to know why they are still talking about this and he is quick to reply that he is still feeling guilty and it's due to not knowing who the guy was. “Because it's in the past Mason and that's where I need it to stay,” Kate explains but he thinks differently and now begs her to tell him who it was. She refuses to so he stomps off out of the house telling her she needs to be honest, she owes him that much.
We then see some outside shots of #26 to get the impression a raging storm is happening outside.
Georgia's mobile rings – its work, she is being called in as they are short staffed, so heads off to work in the storm.
Kyle and Kate are debating who is going to leave the room (as they are still being awkward around each other when alone together) when a spanner is thrown into the works – the power goes off!
Amber asks Kate about his date but instead he turns it around to ask about her/Josh. She admits that she has feelings for Josh and its just Don they'd be keeping it secret from. Chris tells her that keeping his first relationship secret (from his parents) didn't work out well for the partner and thinks Josh shouldn't be doing that to her.
Kyle discovers that it's a localised power cut as he (and Kate) sit around the only candle in the house. Eventually they get over their awkwardness by watching YouTube videos online although Kyle does admit that he'd fear for their friendship if Mason found out the truth.
Imogen quizzes Amber about her being back together with Josh and then discovers that Amber his having second thoughts about it because of having to keep things secret. “Swimming is always going to be Josh's first love,” Imogen reminds her.
Amber is surprised to see her brother in the store and asks “what did you do?” when he told her about leaving after a fight with Kate. He's come to the realisation that it was his fault and has called in for some chocolate cake as a peace offering.
AMBER: Better make it a big slice!
The power finally comes back just as Mason arrives with his peace offering and an apology. Kyle makes himself scarce so he can deliver them.
MASON: I'm sorry I keep going on about this. I know I have to stop making myself crazy whenever I think about what happened, its just that the thought of you being with another guy. I'm not making excuses.
Kate admits to knowing how he feels after finding out about him/Imogen. She then adds that she doesn't want to be keeping secrets from him any more; she'd rather they moved on.
KATE: Which is why I've decided you deserve to know the truth.
Commercial break later, Kyle reappears and Mason tells him about Kate sleeping with Brennan. “At least you know,” Kyle tells him, adding that it was what he wanted. Mason hasn't taken the news of who she slept with well because he thinks she wouldn't have slept with him if there weren't feelings between them. “Let it go,” Kyle urges him because it was just a one- off fling.
KYLE: Don't throw away what you and Kate have over that.
He then urges Mason to go into Kate's room to sort it out, which he does after gathering some food supplies from the table.
Just as Amber is about to leave, Don arrives and confronts her about them carrying on behind his back. Amber plays it cool and turns the tables on him asking to decide if she's Josh's stalker or if she's having a secret affair with Josh.
AMBER: At least decide what you are accusing me of Coach!
Don gets the point and explains why he now thinks relationship than stalker (he saw the look on her face) and she tells him to discuss it with Josh.
DON: Do you want me to tell you where this ends?
AMBER: I honestly have no idea what you are talking about.
DON: Well let's talk hypothetically then. Every single thing that Josh has worked for is about to go down the drain. Every morning that he has woken up at 4 o'clock, every kilometre that he's logged in that pool, all of it for nothing and it will be your fault.
AMBER: I know how important his swimming is to him.
DON: So we're not talking hypothetically any more? Stop being a distraction, not because I said so but for Josh.
Josh arrives into a darkened kitchen and goes to kiss Amber but she pushes him away and instead says that she doesn't want to jeopardise is swimming career. He asks her to help him get there since she already knows what it involves and he will reciprocate and support her.
JOSH: (joking) I'll add you to my schedule!
AMBER: (annoyed) I don't want to be an item on your schedule!
He reveals that he was just kidding and adds that he really wants to find a way to make it work.
AMBER: You are always going to put your dream ahead of me. I'm sorry, I deserve better than that.
Amber makes it clear that the conversation is over and so he leaves but when he does, you see that Amber is upset over that she's just said/done.
Imogen isn't giving her brother much sympathy! He has a go at her about that but she replies that he isn't seeing it from Amber's point of view.
JOSH: I'm not, you're right because she's making a big mistake.
IMOGEN: So now you're trying to convince yourself that you don't care? Boys are so dumb!
JOSH: I'm not trying to convince myself of anything.
IMOGEN: You have been dumped heaps of times always for the same reason and you've never acted like this before, so stop pretending you don't care.
JOSH: Don't! I'm better off without her. Now there is nothing standing in my way. I'm going to go to the Olympics and when I win gold you watch Amber come crawling back.
Imogen just laughs at that one, then quietly replies “okay” before going back to having a chuckle.
We find out who Chris' date is – Hudson! He then reveals that Don is doing the dirty on Josh by making him change distances to protect Hudson the star. Thankfully Chris doesn't let on that he knows who Hudson is talking about.
