No 26 - outside
While Sheila waters the garden, Mason gets a text from Paul: "Remember our talk…". Kate comes out with some OJ, and he tells her it's work stuff. She tells him she's got a doctor's appointment. He asks if she's expecting bad news, and she assures him she isn't. Sheila is listening in. Georgia and Kyle come out, hugging. Kyle comments that he didn't know that Mason stayed over, and Mason says he didn't. Kyle and Georgia kiss, and Mason and Kate look uncomfortable. Mason gets up to get Kate a coffee. Sheila tells him that he's being very sensitive and Kate appreciates it. Mason sighs.
Brad, Terese and Imogen are having breakfast.
IMOGEN: OK, this is going to get really weird really fast if I feel like I'm being watched every mealtime.
TERESE: that's not what we're doing. Is it?
Imogen says she knows they're worried - which Brad says goes with being parents - but she's doing her best. Terese says she's found a good counsellor. Imogen comments that it'll be a "laugh a minute", but agrees to an appointment. Josh apologises if he's to blame. He hugs her and their parents exchange a smile.
IMOGEN: Thanks. That was… wrong. Can we please never do that again?
JOSH: I never get any complaints from my girlfriend.
Imogen asks him not to say anything about her to Amber, as she'd rather keep it in the family. They both get a text, asking them (all Year 11s) to go to the old radio station.
Josh asks Amber if she's OK being back there. She thanks him for asking and they kiss. Imogen tells them to get a room. Susan comes in with Jack, leaving him to give the bad news make the announcement.
JACK: Erinsborough High Radio is going back on the air again.
Susan says that they will broadcast radio programmes as part of their media studies.
SUSAN: So on behalf of the school, please let me say, "Thank you very much".
And on behalf of the viewers, let me say "what have you done"? Susan and the pupils applaud. Josh isn't impressed with having to do a report - sounds like hard work. Susan asks him to share:
JOSH: No offence, Mrs Kennedy, but community radio is a little lame.
[Who knew that Josh was so insightful?] Imogen and Amber think it sounds like fun, and Susan points out it counts as part of their final media mark.
Georgia is singing when Karl arrives. He hesitates, then comes in, saying he wants to check if she's OK. She says she's fine. He says he's noticed she's not rostered on during the week, and after what happened with Robbo… She says it's nothing to do with Robbo; she was trying to help Paul. He says that he can recommend someone to talk to. She doesn't know what she would talk about.
KARL: You just talk about how you're feeling.
GEORGIA: I'm feeling fine. Honestly. I'm actually rostered on later today.
KARL: Oh, OK, well that's good. That's good. Because the longer you take to get back on the horse, the harder it can be.
She assures him that she's back on board.
Imogen, Amber and Josh are working through ideas for their broadcast: music, interviews and celebrity gossip.
JOSH: So these A- listers we're meant to be gossiping about, where are we going to find them - Harold's?
Jack wanders over and asks Josh if he's struggling to get inspired. Josh says he doesn't know anything about it. Imogen says that Josh spends his whole life training in the pool, and that explains his lack of interest in anything else - apart from his girlfriend. Jack thinks he should have no trouble getting an idea.
IMOGEN: What part of the blank expression on his face has got you fooled?
Imogen and Amber walk off and Jack joins Josh. Jack tells him to use the same commitment from swimming in his broadcast. Josh asks why he even cares. Jack says he wants to leave something behind - something which can help the next generation make a mark in the community.
JOSH: So you really think a radio station is gonna do that?
JACK: Oh, you'd be surprised.
Josh points out he still needs something half decent to broadcast.
Sheila tells Georgia that tonight's act has cancelled. Georgia says she's rostered on, so Sheila tells her to call in sick. Georgia says she can't, since Karl is worried she's not coping after Robbo, and is keeping an eye on her. Sheila tells Georgia she's got nothing to prove to Karl and she would be really helping out.
GEORGIA: Do you really think I could have a future as a singer?
SHEILA: Well, not if you stay stuck at that hospital cleaning bedpans.
GEORGIA: Alright. Yeah, I'll do it. I will call in sick. Again.
SHEILA: Good girl!
Mason is sitting at a table and Kate comes in. He asks how her appointment went, and she says she's not suffering any side effects. They are looking forward to their weekend in Sydney. He suggests booking a hotel, but she says they can stay at Harry and Sophie's - after all, they have a pull- out couch. Kate leaves, and Terese comes in. She asks Mason to put up some posters. He hesitates, then asks her if she could organise a discount at a hotel in Sydney. He explains that since Kate has been through so much, he wants to make the weekend special. She tells him he's a lovely boyfriend, and promises to see what she can do.
Amber and Imogen are broadcasting, while Josh is doodling. He tells Jack he can't think of anything. Jack asks him why he gets up early every morning. Josh wonders what that has to do with anything, but says it's because he wants to win a gold medal.
JACK: When I was a kid, I was obsessed with gold too. But I dug for mine, I didn't swim for it.
JOSH: Probably the smarter option.
Jack laughs, saying that motivation is a good place to start. Josh says they should do a competition offering people money to listen. Jack says it bugs him when people want to win without putting in any effort.
JOSH: You are talking my language.
JACK: Ah, I thought I might be.
Jack says he's got an idea for Josh's show, which might be a way for everyone to have fun.
Mason brings Paul his mail. Paul comments that he's heard Mason is going away, and he's using Paul's hotel to get himself a discount despite shafting him to the police. Mason insists he wanted to do something nice for Kate. Paul challenges him about trying to implicate Marty, suggesting that Mason could have run Robbo down himself - which he denies.
PAUL: They are out there looking for Marty, and when they find him, boom, that's it.
MASON: Telling Lucas was the right thing to do.
PAUL: Oh really? Oh, let's hope you feel that way when they throw you in jail.
MASON: It's not gonna happen.
Paul tells him to grow up. He tells Mason he stuck by him for Kate's sake.
PAUL: If this blows up, it's the end of you and her for good.
Josh has joined Amber and Imogen for a broadcast. He stutters, and is rescued by Imogen. Then he announces that there will be a treasure hunt. Amber and Imogen look puzzled as Josh says there will be a chance to win a prize. Imogen tells him (off air) it would have been nice to know about it, and then asks what the prize is. He says it's a mystery courtesy of Jack Lassiter.
AMBER: Yeah, why don't we tell the listeners what it is?
JOSH: Well, it's more fun this way.
IMOGEN: Is it a car?
IMOGEN: Well, if it's a mystery, how do you even know?
JOSH: It's under the ground. You have to dig it up.
Josh says there will be a riddle in three instalments. Crack the code: win the treasure. He reads the first clue.
JOSH: "Begin in a place that has taken my name. Visit the girl from whom Arthur's blade came."
Karl and Susan are listening to Josh's broadcast. Karl asks Susan about the treasure, and she says he has to participate. He thinks Arthur's blade is to do with King Arthur; she claims to have no idea. Changing the subject, he says he's thrilled that Georgia's going back to work. It's tough losing a patient. Susan sympathises, remembering Karl after Troy died. Paul comes in.
PAUL: Ah. Drowning our sorrows in soy milk, are we?
PAUL: It can't be easy watching a former protégé soar to fame.
Paul tells Karl that Georgia is rehearsing at Charlie's.
KARL: Yeah, hang on. She's not playing tonight.
PAUL: Yeah. Up with the latest as usual, aren't you Karl?
Karl asks Paul if Georgia is still at Charlie's. Paul says he thinks so, and Karl leaves.
Georgia finishes her song, and Kyle tells her it sounds good. Karl walks up and asks about her shift at the hospital. Georgia says she called to say she couldn't make it: when Sheila asked, she didn't want to say no. Georgia carries on rehearsing. Kyle says proudly that she's awesome. Karl asks him if he's worried about her taking time off work. Kyle asks if Karl is going to dob her in. He says no, but he hopes everything's OK. Kyle says it's like Georgia says: it's too good an opportunity to pass up. He appreciates it must be hard for Karl not being in the spotlight. Karl denies that's the problem, repeating that he's worried about her. Kyle is sure there's no problem, as he watches her proudly.
Mason turns on the radio to hear Josh reading out the clue again. He asks Kate how that's schoolwork, and she says the radio is part of the curriculum. He tells her they've got better things to do. He's booked a rooftop suite, with a view of the harbour and the Opera House. He tells her she mustn't feel pressured, and if she doesn't like it, he can cancel. She says it's such a nice surprise.
KATE: You know, seeing as we have this hotel room, I think we should make the most of it.
He asks if she's sure, and she says he's been amazing and so patient. They go into the bedroom.
No 32 - Mason's room
Kate and Mason are kissing on the bed. He takes his jumper off. She tells him they have to be careful.
MASON: I didn't think there was still a possibility.
KATE: Well yeah. There's still a small chance that I could get pregnant.
MASON: OK, so… Why don't we…?
MASON: I love you, Kate. And being with you isn't a short- term thing for me, so if it's still possible, let's go for it. Let's have a baby together.
Kate doesn't look too thrilled at the prospect.
