- Paul getting one over Robbo.
- Robbo telling Amber he plans on pleading guilty.
- Amber trying to convince her mum that Robbo is a good person deep down.
- Mason reassuring Kate he will be with her post diagnosis.
Kate manages to convince Georgia that she can manage to go to the specialist appointment on her own so that she will go to the medical conference in Adelaide that Karl sold her the ticket for. Georgia is eventually convinced but wants her to ask Mason to accompany her even though she's not sure he'd want to hear about ‘women's problems'.
Kate arrives just as a weight has been lifted from Mason – Paul's just told him that the $5k debt around his neck is gone. She just thinks it means he now owes Paul a favour but Mason couldn't care less. Following Georgia's instructions, she goes to invite I'm to accompany her to the appointment but his demeanour means she changes her mind and goes back to what is on his – for them to head to the movies that evening.
Amber finishes dressing and volunteers to accompany Robbo to the police station so he can change his plea but all of a sudden he seems to be backing out of doing that. He does agree to let her accompany him to the complex though on the understanding they will take the back streets.
Toadie and Sonya discuss a theme for Callum's forthcoming 16th party – hiring video game consoles for a party at Charlie's. Cal throws a spanner in the works though – he doesn't want a party as he thinks there is nothing to celebrate.
Toadie catches up with his son to get a reason why he doesn't want a party and eventually we find out why – it's because he's not had many girlfriends.
CALLUM: Every girl I meet just wants to be friends.
Toad tries to reassure him that he'll get there eventually but that isn't winning him over especially as he's seen how popular his dad was in Harold's book!
CALLUM: See I'm a loser, no party is going to change that.
Amber escorts Robbo to the complex and he tells her that he will take it from here. She watches him head towards the police station before walking away, and when he sees that, decides not to enter the station but to head off!
As they exit the bar, Georgia asks Kyle to keep an eye on Kate later on a she has an appointment today with the specialist.
And he does just that by bringing her something to eat. Mason rushes in to see how her appointment went (Kyle not amuse that he wasn't with her) and seems to be paying lip service to what she saying (Kyle shakes his head while listening in the kitchen) because he's more excited about the arrangements for going to the movies that night.
“You don't fool me,” Kyle tells her when he reappears in the living room after Mason's speedy visit but Kate is in one of her no- talking moods and bolts to her room.
Mason catches his sister breaking her curfew as he leaves #26 but she explains that she was getting cooped up stuck inside being watched like a hawk. They both apologise to each other for their actions before she leaves him to head over to chat with Josh/Imogen who have just left their house.
Josh isn't exactly overflowing with warmth towards her and leaves to head to the pool. Amber tells Imogen about being with Robbo and she isn't exactly pleased at her friends actions, reminding her that there isn't a future for them.
AMBER: I know. As soon as it happened I knew it was a mistake.
IMOGEN: Then you've got to end it.
Amber tells her that thanks to her, he's changing his plea thus helping him to become a better person. It's still not working for Imogen and she bluntly tells her friend to finish with him today!
Toadie and Sonya are discussing Callum and his problem with the girls. She wants to talk to him about it but he thinks that is a terrible idea to be talking about that with your mum but she plans to chat when they are working. He again tries to persuade her not to chat with him as it's definitely a father/son chat!
Sonya ignores Toadie and decides to talk to her son and he is not exactly welcoming the talk… especially because Imogen is overhearing their chat when she arrived to drop her CV off.
Mason doesn't appreciate Kyle chatting to him and suggesting that Kate would really prefer a night in rather than going out to the movies.
MASON: She told me she was feeling better and I believe her, so we're going to go to the movies and we're going to have a laugh because that is the best thing for her.
“Whatever you reckon,” Kyle calmly replies and Mason adds for him never to worry about Kate because he will always do what's best for her.
Imogen is pushing Amber to hurry up and tell Robbo and eventually she yells at her friend to get off her back! However it does seem to have had the desired effect and she leaves to go tell him and Imogen agrees to hang out by the pool to comfort her when she returns.
Amber passes her brother on the way out and he is highly suspicious especially when he detects from the way Imogen is covering, that something is up.
Imogen spots Callum hiding from his parents when she comes in to get some ice- cream (part of the cover story she gave to Mason).
IMOGEN: Parents can be pretty embarrassing huh?
CALLUM: You have no idea.
She tries to cheer him up by pointing out that she is older than him and hasn't been kissed nor been in a relationship, explaining that she is waiting for the right guy and doesn't want to throw it away for the sake of it. “And you shouldn't either,” she adds.
IMOGEN: I think it's really important not to rush into these things. I've see it go wrong with so many of my friends. They want to grow up so fast and they make mistakes, get involved with the wrong people. You're a really special guy and you deserve the best. When the right person comes along, you will know it, in her.
Imogen then heads off before he ice- cream gets all “melty” and it looks like he has appreciated the chat they had.
Kyle shows Kate the research that he has been doing into her condition (so he can support her) and she is really impressed and grateful for the amount of work that he's put in.
Amber arrives and after chastising Robbo for scaring her asks how it went at the station. He lies to her about it but says that by tomorrow all the paperwork will be completed. Robbo suggests they celebrate and when he goes to touch her, she pulls back and explains that because of her parents they need to end it. He reluctantly accepts that the news is for the best.
ROBBO: You're a special girl Amber. Have a good life.
Final commercial break and Robbo hears someone enter the building and thinks its Amber but its Mason. This raises suspicion immediately for Mason why her name was said but he covers it by saying they are close, really close. Mason doesn't really get the idea of what Robbo was hinting at and tells him it's got to stop. That suits Robbo fine because he's already got what he wanted and that statement is like a red flag to a bull as far as Mason is concerned and he swings for Robbo. Robbo is too quick for him as he evades the punch and instead forces Mason to the ground.
Despite Robbo crouching over him, its Mason that is doing the threatening and Robbo lets him go quickly. Turns out that he has no real reason to physically harm Mason because he has all the ammunition he needs – he took video footage of Amber and himself TITTNL™ unknown by her. Despite the debt being wiped by Paul, Robbo now wants double it from Mason or he threatens to turn the video viral.
