Previously on Neighbours
- Kate questioning Gem why she is playing music videos during class time.
- Gem wrongly accusing Kate of dobbing her in.
- Gem telling Georgia that Kate doesn't like her.
- Bailey struggling to understand why he got a lower grade than Callum in the assignment.
- Chris giving his one night stand the brush off then discovering that he has probably damaged cars at the garage.
After seeing the police off, Danni is still mystified how the cars got damaged and Chris is keeping his mouth very firmly closed! She heads inside to let the customers know their cars have been damaged and Kyle confronts Chris about his suspicions over who did it but again he's keeping quiet because he doesn't want to cause Miguel problems in case it wasn't him. Kyle urges him to tell Danni but Chris refuses to.
Sonya arrives at the gym and immediately spots Josie who has been exercising her heart out again. She tries to have a subtle word about her overdoing it but it's not getting in, so she suggests that Josie comes to the house after school, which she agrees to. Initially Sonya had tried to get Josie to come for a BBQ with her parents (to obviously express her concerns to them) but she rejected that on the pretence that they are busy.
Bailey is down at the dumps after seeing that Rani has moved on with another boy in London after he was checking out her Facebook status. Gem comes into the living room and Bailey decides to head off to school himself so she asks Cal what gives. He explains that he's just generally down in the dumps and tells her about Rani moving on and also about him wanting to go to Susan too and get his assignment remarked but that he is fine with it now.
Lauren is explaining to Imogen about how the store works (she's now doing the remainder of her work experience there) when Mason comes in surprised to see her there. She isn't exactly complimentary about being there but does seem to enjoy him telling her that she looks hot in the apron she is wearing!
Lassiters hotel reception
Amber isn't exactly enjoying her work experience either (Terese is freaking her out!) as she horrendously attempts to wash up some coffee she spilt in the reception area. Of course Terese finds her mopping up (and nearly slipping on the excess water lying around) and gets Mason to finish clearing up so she can help out in reception instead.
Gem spots Bailey in a classroom and tries to chat with him about Rani and telling him about a similar predicament she was in with an ex at school too. She encourages him to defriend Rani (he's reluctant to do that initially but after the chat with Gem looks like he will do that) and brings up him not liking his mark for the assignment and requests that if he's unhappy that he speaks to her.
Danni eventually worms it out of Chris about Miguel being the likely suspect to have damaged the cars. She is extremely miffed he didn't say anything at all to her and issues him with his official second warning.
DANNI: One more mistake and you're out.
Kate/Georgia run into each other in passing at the store. Georgia suggests that since they've not had a catch up in ages that they go to the movies and then back to her place for a drink. Kate is really up for that until Georgia tells her to mention it to Gem too as she might want to come along too.
Susan calls Kate over inform her of Sonya's concerns about Josie (Susan/Sonya have been chatting) since Kate is her form teacher. Kate doesn't seem to have noticed anything untoward but does say that Josie doesn't seem to have a being called 'Lamb Shanks'. Susan asks if Sonya's mentioned anything to her parents and she explains how Josie reacted to her suggestion of inviting them for a BBQ, so her solution for now is to email Josie's teachers asking them to be mindful.
Gem ignores the email Susan has just sent out about Josie (it's boring) when Kate comes into her room to invite her to the movies. She's a bit hesitant given what happened but Kate wants them to have a fresh start before asking if she's read the email as Josie is in her next class. Gem lies saying she has and Kate leaves as the students arrive for class.
During the class Gem ticks Josie off about chatting even if one of those times was her moaning to Callum that Gem doesn't pick on any of the girls to answer questions. As the lesson progresses, Josie points out an error Gem has made and teacher doesn't like being corrected by her student, so she tries to cover up her mistake and issues Josie with double homework!
"She hates me," Josie tells Cal as they exit the class and even he sympathises with her! He is then surprised to hear Bailey defend the teacher and she runs off muttering that boys are so clueless. Kate spots that Josie is upset and encourages her to say what the problem is so she can help and Josie replies that it's Miss Reeves.
"She's completely exaggerating," Gem claims and that she didn't put Josie down in front of the class when she is explaining herself to Susan (and Kate) in her office. Gem then digs herself into a hole when she is forced to admit that she didn't read the email Susan sent out (and lies too saying she told Kate that she had received it when Kate actually asked if she'd read it) and pleads her ignorance that she wouldn't have said what she did if she'd known. Susan orders her to go talk to Josie and get it sorted out.
When Gem leaves, Kate tells Susan that she is sure she asked her if she'd read it and Susan replies that she's got to take what Gem said to her. "What if she's lying?" Kate asks and Susan replies that dealing with Josie is more important just now.
Lassiters hotel reception
Terese isn't pleased at Amber comping an old couple some coffee, telling her that only managers can do that.
Chris updates Kyle on the garage situation - Miguel confessed straight away to the police and thus he'll be picking up the tab for the insurance excess instead of the garage having to do so. Kyle misconstrues Chris saying that is the end of that (meaning the one night stands) when in actual fact he means he won't tell them in future where he works!
Kyle arrives to meet Georgia just as her break is over and it's a no- go about seeing each other tonight too when she explains about the movie date with Kate/Gem.
Imogen is serving a customer who has underpaid for his coffee but he's got no more money to give her. Lauren steps in and sends Ron on his way and explains to her that he's on the pension and is happy to take whatever he can give, even when Imogen pointed out that it will affect her profit.
Gem has shouted Bailey/Cal to a mega food feast (on condition they keep quiet on who bought it) and Sonya asks where Josie is as she was supposed to be coming round after school too. Cal explains that she was upset but given Gem is in the room doesn't know if to tell her the full story or not but its Gem who explains that she had a run in with Josie and that she probably wanted to keep her distance. Sonya is a bit bemused and Bailey pipes up to say Josie was showing off and Gem put her back in her place and its simply Josie taking it the wrong way. "We talked, she'll be fine," Gem further adds too.
Josie is working out hard as ever when Sonya arrives to talk to her about what happened at school. She plays down the incident and isn't happy that Sonya has been talking either when she inadvertently mentioned that 'they' were worried. Sonya is forced to explain about her concerns and when she does, Josie isn't pleased and storms out of the gym.
Georgia drops by after work to confirm with Kate that the movie date is still on. She replies that it is and hopes that Gem is in a better mood and fills Georgia in about what happened at school. Georgia thinks the incident was the other way around and can't comprehend the idea of Gem getting angry. "She must hide that very well from you then," Kate mutters back and Georgia explains to her that Gem would never hurt anyone on purpose.
KATE: Maybe you just can't see it because you are too close to her?
Georgia takes the hump at that, telling Kate that she obviously doesn't want to listen to her and adds in that if she is so anti- Gem then she can forget about the movie date tonight.
KATE: Are you being serious?
GEORGIA: Yes, and you know what since you hate my cousin so much you probably don't need to see me either!
Kate looks on bewildered as Georgia stomps out of the house.
