Georgia makes a phonecall for an ambulance for Kate. She's been shot; she's unconscious but is still breathing. Mark carries Kate towards the complex while Sophie, Kyle and Zeke follow. Mark and Sophie speak to Kate, telling her the ambulance is on its way and everything will be fine. Kate awakens briefly and tells Mark she loves him, before closing her eyes again. Mark shouts to Kate just as the ambulance sirens are heard.
Callum and Sonya look at a board displaying photographs of Kate. Paul starts speaking on the microphone, joking that he's sent out a search party for Kate so that she does turn up. Just then Zeke runs in and shouts to Paul that Kate has been shot. Paul thinks it's a joke but Zeke insists. Paul rushes outside.
Paul joins the crowd. Susan tells Paul to give the ambulance workers some room so he hugs Sophie while the ambulance workers try to stabilise Kate. Sonya and Callum are in the crowd and ask who did this, but Kyle says they don't know. Kyle sees Chris hobbling into the complex using a stick to prop himself up. Kyle rushes to help him. Kyle tells Chris that Kate has been shot. Chris says he was attacked by Stephen Montague.
Karl gets a phone call from Susan; she tells him what has happened.
The police arrive. Mark holds Kate's hand but the paramedics are unable to revive Kate. They stop trying, as there is nothing more they can do. Mark sobs quietly. Sophie cries out and hugs Paul. Those in the crowd are shocked and grief stricken. Mark cries and lets Kate's hand go.
The paramedics wheel Kate's body into the hospital. Karl follows them in, while one paramedic hands Mark a bag containing the engagement ring.
Erinsborough Hospital Consultation Room
Karl examines some of Chris's X- Rays as Chris sits in a wheelchair. Karl says he will need a knee reconstruction. A male nurse, Will, arrives and gives Karl a pair of crutches. Karl says the police will want to speak to Chris again, but assures Chris there's nothing else that he could have done. Chris says Montague was right there, and he could have stopped him. Karl says he doesn't even know if Montague did this. Karl asks why Montague would want to shoot Kate. Chris thinks Montague must have been aiming for Brennan. He sent Brennan a threatening text and maybe wanted revenge on Brennan for stopping him getting to Danni. It's the only explanation that makes sense.
Paul takes down the ‘Happy Birthday, Kate' banner. He sits down by himself and starts drinking. He gets a text from Andrew which reads ‘Say Happy Birthday to Kate for me. She's not answering her phone.' Paul starts crying and knocks his drink away. He then starts destroying the place.
Susan is talking to someone on the phone, saying that there is a suspect but they can't find them. She says they're having the funeral later today and everyone will be coming back here for the wake afterwards. Zeke looks at a notice in the paper.
‘Ramsay – Kate. Beloved sister of Sophie and Harry Ramsay, much loved daughter of Jill Ramsay and niece to Paul Robinson. Taken before your time, you will now be gracing heaven with your beauty, kindness, generosity and humour. You made the world a better place. Words cannot express how much we will you Kate. Your memory will live on in our hearts forever'
Karl asks if they know how many will be coming back here for the wake, but Susan doesn't know. Zeke checks how Sophie is, she says nothing she writes is enough to say how she feels. Karl suggests a poem or a reading. Sophie says she writes songs, she should be able to do this, she just wishes she could talk to Paul, but he's busy trying to organise this. Susan tells her she just needs to speak to the heart. As they all prepare to leave, Zeke gets a phone call. He says he needs to take this and he'll catch up with them. As they leave, he answers the phone.
ZEKE: Hey you. I'm alright considering everything. No of course I want to, just after everything that's happened. I'm sure, more than ever.
Sonya and Callum join Toadie in the living room. Nell is finally asleep, but just as they say that they hear her start crying again. Sonya says she's probably picked up on all the tension. Sonya wonders if she should stay, but Toadie says she has to go, the babysitter will be fine, when she gets here. Callum is anxious, but Toadie is looking for a certain tie that Kate had told him she liked. Callum goes to the car. Sonya wonders if it's at the office, and Toadie remembers that it is. They'll pick it up on the way. Toadie apologises if he's being snappy, but she says it's okay.
Rebecchi Law Office
Toadie puts on his tie, as Naomi enters. He asks her if she'll be okay today, it will be a good distraction to talk about work for a few minutes. Naomi runs through a few things she has to do, and then she helps Toadie fix his tie. Toadie tells her to finish up here as soon as she can and then go home; she should be with her family. It's a tough day.
Number 26 Back Yard
Georgia asks Kyle how his speech is going. He says writing it was easy, but getting up and saying it will be the hard part. Georgia says Brennan gave her back the photo of her and Kate that she gave Kate for her birthday. She shows Kyle the picture, and says she can't believe she spent so much time being angry at her. The last time she spoke to Kate it was about Kyle, she wanted them to get back together. Kyle says the last time he spoke to Kate it was about Georgia, she told him to give Georgia more time and to not give up. Like her and Brennan.
Brennan puts on his suit jacket. He looks at a letter placed in the fruit bowl. It reads ‘Thank you for the best birthday breakfast ever! Love you always xxx Kate.' Brennan kisses the letter.
Paul looks at a locket. We flashback to 4- 5 years ago, Paul tells Kate that it was his mum's, her grandmother. He wants Kate to have it, it's a family connection.
After thinking for a moment, Paul stands up and walks out, passing a photo of him and Kate on the mantelpiece.
A screen is displaying a slideshow of photographs of Kate. On the screen it reads ‘Kate Ramsay 1992- 2014'. Brennan enters and sees Kate's coffin, getting a little overwhelmed with emotion, he takes a deep breath before entering and sitting down at the front beside Kyle. Brennan holds the engagement ring in his hand. Paul looks over from the other side of the room, while he hugs Sophie. Georgia holds Kyle's hand. Sophie stands up to give her speech, running her fingers along the coffin as she makes her way to the front.
SOPHIE: (tearfully) Kate wasn't just my sister. She was my best friend. For a lot of years she was my mum too. It wasn't always easy, sometimes Kate was really bossy. But Harry and I couldn't have made it without her. I would give anything to have her here bossing me around right now.
KYLE: She always had time for people. She always had a smile and I loved her. Everyone who knew Kate loved her. Even though she went too soon all our lives are better for having known her.
PAUL: There's an old saying that only the good die young. Well the god's must have adored Kate Ramsay because she was taken away from us way too soon. You see she grew up fast, too fast. But she was a fighter wasn't she? Oh yeah, when everyone else cut and run you could always depend on Kate. I'll never forget what she meant to me.
BRENNAN: We've all heard about Kate Ramsay: the sister; the friend; the niece; the teacher. To me she was simply the best person in the world. The kindest, the most caring, the most beautiful. She's the love of my life.
The slow piano version of the Neighbours theme plays while Paul, Georgia, Kyle, Brennan, Zeke and Sophie carry Kate's coffin out of the room.

Kyle and Georgia sit with Bossy. Georgia suggests they go over to Karl and Susan's, but Kyle likes being there just now. Sheila walks out on the phone.
SHEILA: Well that is ridiculous, and let me to you, when I get to Bangkok I will put a bomb under you!
KYLE: Gran, you can't say the word bomb to a government official!
SHEILA: Well they don't even know what I'm saying.
Kyle doesn't think she should go to Bangkok when she's in this mood. Sheila says they can't leave Dane over there on his own. Kyle says he'll go.

Paul presents Sophie with Kate's locket. Now that she's gone, he wants Sophie to have it. Sophie thanks him and asks him to put it on for her. Paul was hoping that once Harry has finished his basketball tour, that the two of them would come to stay with him for a while. Sophie was actually thinking of going to the States and meeting Harry there, as soon as possible. Harry sounds really bad and she wants to be there for him. She checks if that's okay with Paul, she hates leaving him alone. Paul understands, he tells her not to worry about him, he'll be okay. Paul offers to get his assistant to book a first class flight for her.
SOPHIE: Thank you. Thank you so much for everything you've done for us.
PAUL: You know I'll always be here if you need me.
Sophie cries and hugs Paul.
Mark stands by Kate's gravestone, which reads ‘Kate Ramsay, 1992- 2014. Beloved sister of Harry and Sophie, daughter of Jill. Always in our hearts'
Paul rushes over, angrily.
PAUL: According to life expectancy Kate should have lived another 60 years. That's nearly 22000 days.
MARK: What's your point?
PAUL: You were right, Kate was the best person who ever lived, nobody would want to hurt her. That bullet was intended for you. You killed her as surely as pulling the trigger yourself. I am going to make you pay for every single one of those 22000 days.
