Previously on Neighbours
- Danni is scared of her ex, who is then arrested
- Kate wonders if she's making a mistake, being "just friends" with Mark
- Paul promises to buy Rebecca a business
- Susan suggests to Rebecca and Paul that Rebecca is staying because of guilt
Paul tells Rebecca that Susan spoke to him, but that she's wrong: he knows that Rebecca still loves him, and that's why she hasn't moved on. Rebecca doesn't know how she feels.
PAUL: The more time we spend together, the sooner you are going to realise your true feelings.
Rebecca challenges Susan about talking to Paul. She apologises, but says it's insane for Rebecca to stay after what Paul has done. Rebecca points out that Susan forgave Karl.
SUSAN: Karl and I both made mistakes, but I was never compelled to shove him off a balcony. Love can't grow from guilt, no matter how much you force it to.
Rebecca looks pensive.
Danni tells Mark that her lawyer has texted her to say that her ex has been bailed. She's scared, but Mark reassures her that his bail conditions, and the fact that everyone is looking out for her, mean that she's perfectly safe. Hmm, we know what that means.
Lassiter's Complex - Farm Day
Susan is entering vegetables on Karl's behalf. Sheila is a bit put out, commenting that she didn't think Karl would be bothered.
SUSAN: I've been up all night polishing his massive zucchini.
SHEILA: Well, I've always seen Karl's zucchini as average in size.
SUSAN: Oh no - you'd be surprised. He's an amazing grower. Just look at these. (holds up two tomatoes, chest high)
SHEILA: (holds up two larger tomatoes) Mine are bigger!
SUSAN: Well, maybe, but these are firm and taste amazing.
They disagree about whose vegetables should get pride of place:
SHEILA: We wouldn't want Karl to be embarrassed and shown up in public.
SUSAN: You know what they say: pride comes before a fall.
Mark and Kyle are walking along, Kyle wondering how many people will be watching. Mark reckons he's a dead cert to win, which naturally Kyle disagrees with. He asks Georgia.
GEORGIA: Mark's pretty buff, but never discount a tradie.
Mark goes off to get a drill from the garage, and Georgia and Kyle smile awkwardly.
As Mark arrives, Danni is checking the CCTV footage from the previous night. She tells him she feels like she's being watched, and he tells her that's a typical reaction, but there's nobody there. Meanwhile on ScaryCam™, someone is watching from across the road.
Georgia asks Kyle to deliver some bags to the Petting Zoo, and he takes the opportunity to show off his muscles. Mark comes in. Kate thanks Danni for her support in donations and help, and Danni says it's a cause close to her heart. She glances over at Mark, and says he's great. Kate is taken aback, then Danni explains about her ex, and Kate says he's a good person to have on your side.
Georgia announces the Tug of War (two teams of spunks fighting over a rope, according to Sheila) between Team Brenna and Team Canning. The captains find it necessary to take their shirts off. Eventually, Kyle's team wins, and Georgia presents him with his pink sash. .
Rebecca gives Georgia a cheque (obviously a lot) from Paul. Rebecca says that people turn a blind eye to domestic abuse. There's an uncomfortable silence, then Danni tells her she was in an abusive relationship.
DANNI: I still wonder what I could have done differently.
REBECCA: Oh, you mustn't think like that. No, whatever happened, you didn't deserve it. It wasn't your fault, OK?
Danni thanks her, and she and Georgia leave. Susan tells her that she made Danni feel better, and Rebecca says she feels better too.
Rebecca tells Paul she's been thinking about their past and their future. She tells him she's going to volunteer at the women's shelter. He's pleased, as that's exactly what the Mayor's wife should do. She tells him she's not staying in Erinsborough.
REBECCA: I will always be ashamed of what I did to you that night.
PAUL: I love you Rebecca, and I know that we can make this work, I do.
He begs her not to go, but she tells him she has to go today. He's distraught.
ScaryCam™ has appeared at the Farm Day, where Sheila has lost her pickles. She asks Kate to go home for them, and Danni asks her to go and pick up her jumper.
Hotel - Rebecca's room
Rebecca tells Kate that she wished she could have sorted out her and Mark. Kate says she thinks they were just supposed to be friends, and she's in control of her life. Having given her the red dress back, Rebecca says goodbye.
Callum is wheeling Nell up the street when he sees a mystery person going up the drive to No 24.
Mark and Danni are chatting when Mark gets a call from Cal. Mark asks Danni if she was expecting a visitor, and she mentions Kate. He pretends he was expecting a parcel and runs out.
Kate is making her way up to No 24
Susan apologises for giving Rebecca a hard time over Paul, but Rebecca is glad she did. Paul turns up, commenting that his invitation to her farewell got lost in the mail. Paul is upset, and she tells him that it's the way it has to be. He gets in the lift and she tells the taxi driver to go to the airport.
Kate has just picked up Danni's jumper when she hears a noise. She asks if anyone is there...
