Number 30 Back Yard
Mason finds Amber sitting by the swimming pool. Neither of them could sleep. Mason asks if Amber is seeing Robbo again, she says no. Amber saw Robbo yesterday to check that he would change his plea.

Mason tells Robbo that he spoke to Amber who proved Robbo was lying. Robbo takes out his phone and shows him the film of him sleeping with Amber. Mason threatens to tell the police, but if that happens Robbo will upload the film at the press of a button. Robbo wants that money. Mason asks if Robbo changed his plea, but he didn't need to as Robbo now has a construction job with the council. Mason knows Robbo's plan to pin the crime on Bailey won't work, but Robbo thinks with the skeletons in the Turner family closet that he doesn't think so. Mason can't believe he'd use Amber like that just for blackmail – Robbo says it's not like he didn't have fun doing it.

He tells Marty that the card game worked a treat, and has organised a night in an executive suite for Marty as a gesture of his appreciation.
Lucas tells Sonya that Vanessa shouldn't be working today. Vanessa insists that it's just a bit of morning sickness and she's fine. Lucas says Vanessa's health is more important than money. Vanessa says she's fine and insists Lucas and Sonya sit down. As they sit down, Lucas tells Sonya that he hates being in this financial position after he bid too much on the apartment. He hopes #32 sells so they can afford it. The first viewing is this morning and Lucas hopes to catch up with Matt or Lauren after the GA meeting to discuss it. Sonya suggests they can miss the meeting if it's important. Lucas realises she doesn't want to go as this is the first meeting since Walter left. On the bright side, they both have new stories to tell.
Matt arrives and tells Lucas the viewing could have been worse, but only one married couple turned up, and he doesn't think they liked it.
Chris tells Amber she's crazy for sleeping with Robbo.
AMBER: I'm such an idiot!
(Chris takes a drink of coffee)
AMBER: That's when you're supposed to say no you're not!
CHRIS: Well you are a little bit. You just deserve so much better that's all.

He says it sounds alright, he'd go to support his dad but it doesn't sound like a fun day out. Paul thinks if Lassiters is to be involved it should be contemporary and cutting edge. Mason apologises again for how he acted earlier. He asks Paul for an advance on his pay for something important. Paul asks if it is to do with Robbo, as he doesn't have to worry as Paul's already cleared that debt. Mason says not to worry. As Mason leaves, Paul sees Josh packing his bag, wearing his sponsorship jacket from ‘The West Waratah Star.'
Paul tells Terese he thinks her sponsorship idea was good, but it won't be for the Exhibition, it'll be for a young up and coming athlete, such as Josh. She says it can't happen, he already has a sponsor and it's an exclusive deal. Paul says they're looking for an athlete.
Mason gets a coffee as Robbo arrives and takes Mason's coffee off him. That's 3 bucks off Mason's bill. Mason says he has more money, he has $1800 in his account. Robbo says it's a start, but not enough. Mason says there needs to be another way to sort this out. If the video goes viral Amber will never get over it. Robbo says he'd better get him what he wants.
Paul tells Marty to keep an eye on Robbo Slade, he's trouble and he needs Marty to help Paul make trouble for him. He asks Marty to find some ammo against Robbo.
Meanwhile Hudson and Chris are eating together, discussing Brad's training methods. Chris is just pleased that Hudson isn't going to America, he would have missed him. Chris puts his hand on Hudson's knee, and Hudson puts his hand on Chris's hand, saying he'd have missed him too. Chris goes to get another drink from the bar, just as Paul is ordering. Paul greets ‘freckles' and tells Chris that they look cosy and he's pleased to see romance alive and well. He then recognises Hudson as a swimmer. Chris says he's a champion and Paul looks interested.

Robbo is picking up litter when Matt comes over to question him. Robbo says he's doing a job.
MATT: You're working for the council?
ROBBO: You should be a detective with those smarts. Oh, that' s right, that's not really on the cards at the moment, is it?
MATT: If you want to keep that job you might want to shut your mouth.
ROBBO: Yes constable.
Robbo goes back to work and grins as Matt walks off.
