- Josh tells Amber he went after Robbo, but he had nothing to do with the hit and run.
- Brad and Terese find Robbo's phone and Imogen lets Mason know.
- Matt watches the video
Mason runs up to the Police Station and sees his father outside. Mason says he has to tell him something, but a distressed Matt says it's too late. Mason explains he's known a while but he wanted to stop Robbo from uploading it. Lauren and Amber arrive with a police officer, with Lauren not knowing why they are there. Matt says he'll explain, while the others go in.
DS Crabb (Ellen) questions Amber who says she found out about the video on the night of the accident. Amber denies running Robbo down. Ellen asks who else knew about it. Amber says nobody else knew, but Ellen doesn't believe her and points out Mason has a history with Robbo.
AMBER: It wasn't just Mason, OK? Everyone knew.
DS CRABB: Who's everyone?
Amber lists the people who knew: Imogen (whom she told afterwards), Chris and Hudson… and Mason. Ellen asks if she has a boyfriend, and if she told him.
AMBER: I would never tell Josh.
Ellen writes it down. Amber assures her that none of them did it.
Imogen texts Mason, asking him to call, while Jack is talking about the next clue for the Treasure Hunt. She takes a look and says it's nearly impossible.
JACK: If it's any easier, it wouldn't be a riddle. I mean, it would be street directions.
However, Jack spots that Imogen is distracted.
Meanwhile at another table, Paul is talking to Georgia about the big career she has ahead of her, starting with gigs at every Lassiters in Australia. Georgia is excited, saying singing is what she wants to do. Paul gives her a contract to sign, which she takes away to read over. Jack comes over.
JACK: Had a win?
PAUL: Yeah. I love dealing with these creative types, especially those who are desperate to make a career out of it. Makes them so much easier to out negotiate.
Jack's not impressed and walks off. Paul gets a text from Mason wanting to see him.
Sheila asks Georgia if it's a fair deal.
CHRIS: Not to say that Paul's a money hungry shark who's in it for himself, but…
Georgia says Toadie is going to check it over. Kyle asks if there'll be a lot of touring. Karl walks in and overhears. Georgia tells Kyle that it's worth the sacrifice. Karl interrupts, and asks Georgia about work, which she says she'll sort out. Karl says he thinks she's running away from her problems.
GEORGIA: No offence Karl, but I'm kind of over hearing that.
Mason tells Paul they need to tell the police about Marty. Amber is at the police station, and he's next. So the cops should be looking for Marty.
PAUL: I'm glad I'm not in your shoes, which is exactly why I'm not about to try them on.
Paul points out there are plenty of suspects who might have done it, so he's not sticking his neck on the chopping block. He warns Mason not to say anything about Marty.
Police Station - interview room
Scenes from various interviews:
Ellen asks Mason how he found out about the video. He says Robbo was blackmailing him but denies running him down.
Hudson admits getting the money, and that he knew it was going to Robbo, but denies that he saw Robbo on the night.
Ellen suggests to Chris that he wanted to get even with Robbo. Chris admits that he paid Robbo off, but denies that he ran him down to get the money back. He says it was "some random" who gave it to Lucas.
Imogen says it was her car, but she wasn't driving. She denies that she's protecting anyone.
Ellen suggests that Mason knows who was driving because he put one of his friends up to it.
Hudson angrily says he's confident he didn't do it, and points out that Don has vouched for him. Ellen says that he's the most angry of everyone.
Chris is upset. Ellen suggests it's because he didn't get away with it, and he says it's because he didn't do it.
Imogen is upset that Ellen won't believe her. Ellen says that Imogen didn't report her car stolen until afterwards.
Toadie is reading Georgia's contract, and he says it's got some issues: Paul gets a third of her fees, the copyright of her songs is assigned to him, and there's a list of requirements she has to fulfil. Georgia says she can renegotiate but is a bit casual after Toadie says she can live off her earnings. Toadie asks if she's serious about it, and she replies that she's totally committed. Toadie thought she was committed to nursing.
GEORGIA: I have always loved singing too.
TOADIE: In any case, I would not sign this contract.
Georgia says no- one else wants to manage her, so she wouldn't have a career otherwise. And she's not earning anything from the copyright of her songs. Toadie repeats his advice that it's a bad deal.
Karl and Kyle are discussing Georgia's change of career. Karl expresses his concern that it's a reaction to Robbo's death. Kyle claims that it's not necessarily the case. Karl says it's worth thinking about the timing. Kyle looks thoughtful, and Karl suggests that he's the only person Georgia might listen to.
Ellen comes in and finds Matt. She tells him they've found a broken piece of the phone cover in the skip, and it's being tested for finger prints. They've also confirmed that the emergency call came from Robbo's phone. She says probably whoever made the call, drove the car.
DET. SGT CRABB: With any luck, whatever we find will put your family in the clear.
MATT: But until then, they're all suspects.
DET. SGT CRABB: Every instinct in my body is telling me at least one of those kids is lying. And until I find out, yes, they're all suspects.
A tearful Amber tells her parents she gets that she made a mistake, but she wasn't involved in the hit and run. Matt and Lauren say nothing and Amber despairingly asks them for some reaction. Lauren says she's struggling to understand why Amber went to back to Robbo after all he'd done.
MATT: You're not the only one.
LAUREN: It's just hard to understand.
AMBER: I guess I was trying to fix him, or getting him to acknowledge how wrong he was. I don't know. Dad, please don't hate me.
Matt says nothing, so Lauren sends him out, so they can have a girlie chat. Amber is upset that her dad can't even look at her. Lauren assures her they'll get through it.
Outside, Lauren comes to check on Matt.
MATT: The video would be bad enough. But who it was with and what happened because of it… I know our daughter is going through hell right now, but I can't talk to her. I'm afraid of what I'm going to say. Part of me wants to hold her and tell her everything's going to be all right, but the other part…
Lauren says they have to support Amber. He asks Lauren to look after Amber while he processes what's happened. Lauren says they have to get past it. She assures him everything will be OK. He doesn't look convinced.
Georgia tells Kyle that Toadie was wary about the contract, and she's going to talk about the details with Paul, but she's pretty happy with it. Kyle asks if it's what she really wants to do. She asks what he means.
KYLE: I just don't want you to leave your career behind because you're scared or nervous. Or guilty.
GEORGIA: Why would I feel guilty. I haven't done anything wrong.
Kyle admits that Karl spoke to him, and she insists she knows what she's doing. She stomps off, thanking Kyle for his support. She meets Karl, and tells him not to interfere. She accuses him of being jealous because he hasn't had a music career, then leaves.
Georgia tells Paul that Toadie had some issues with the contract - which Paul isn't surprised at - but she's fine with it. She asks when she can start and he says straightaway. She signs and they shake hands.
PAUL: Welcome to the first day of your new life. Congratulations.
Georgia is telling Sheila that she's excited, although there's a long way to go. Kyle claims it's great, but doesn't sound convinced. Jack comes in, asking for some water. He collapses, and Sheila calls Georgia over. She starts chest compressions while Kyle calls for an ambulance.
