Previously on Neighbours
- Amber telling Daniel that the situation is driving her crazy.
- Lee informing Naomi that the danger money is up to $5000!
- Georgia's engagement ring going missing.
- Naomi hovering with the ring outside the Bric- a- Bac store.
- Lauren asking Paige to leave #32 as she's got a family thing on.
- Paige trashing Harold's.
Lauren is replacing the stock damaged when it was trashed and Paige can't help apologise again for not locking up. Paige then has a visitor to the store – her brother Ethan and she quickly signals to him to follow her out after asking Lauren if she can take a break.
Leading her brother to a safe place to chat, Ethan explains to his annoyed sister why he is there and admits he is surprised that the truth hasn't come out. Realising that they could be caught out at any moment by Brad, she asks Ethan to wait by the rotunda and she will be there soon.
Sheila leads Kyle/Chris/Georgia in trying to find the missing engagement ring with the aid of a metal detector to no avail. Naomi enters the house and goes to help look for the ring and is the lucky one to find where it went! Georgia/Kyle are over the moon to have the ring back and hug Naomi although Sheila/Chris are puzzled because they'd already checked under the fridge where Naomi “found” the ring.
Paige returns to meet with her brother and begrudgingly admits that she is happy to see him even if she's still annoyed he appeared. She opens up to tell him that she feels the longer she is around, the more they don't want to know her even if Lauren is the mum she's always wanted. He asks how it's going with the others.
PAIGE: Well Lauren's still married to the cop, Amber's still a princess, Bailey's cool though for a kid with issues.
ETHAN: And Brad's side?
PAIGE: I get along with Josh. Imogen still hates me.
ETHAN: And the corporate ball- breaker?
PAIGE: Still a ball- breaker!
She then tells her brother that, “as much as I hate you sometimes I've really missed you.”
Sheila catches up with her daughter unexpectedly in the complex and quizzes her about how she managed to find the ring and accuses her of stealing it. Naomi denies her suggestion since Georgia got her ring back. She then spots Lee coming and gets rid of her mum so they can speak alone. He isn't pleased to find out that she hasn't the money and gives her 1 hour to get the money otherwise everyone will know that her stalker is the concierge from the building she used to live in.
Naomi is shocked to find the penthouse in a right mess when she enters. She is round to ask if she can use this week's payment for other reasons and to her surprise he agrees to waive her next repayment and knows she will pay when she can. Naomi then orders Paul to have a shower, not because he stinks but so he feels better, and once he heads off starts tidying the place for him… and temptation comes her way when she sees a car key lying underneath some rubbish on the table.
Paige has taken Ethan home and she tries to explain to him what she knows about Brad/Lauren's past and how she came into being. Ethan jokes that she shouldn't give up the day job since there wasn't too much to tell! She adds that she can't exactly go up and ask, “I hear you had a baby 20 years ago and you gave it up for adoption what's that about?” Ethan agrees on that point and says that given Brad came looking for her, he must want to know.
PAIGE: But Lauren stopped the search, she can't want to find me that bad.
ETHAN: So you're just going to leave them in the dark?
PAIGE: Until I'm ready.
Ethan warns her it might get ugly once it comes out and her response is she needs to get her timing perfectly… and why she wants him to go in case Brad sees him. She eventually concedes to letting him stay for one night but on one condition – that he stays inside while she's at work.
ETHAN: Fine, if that's what you want.
PAIGE: Yes it is. Man this street is weird! It's so neighbourly, people constantly popping in and out of each other's houses.
With that, she warns him that if anyone talks to him she is her friend from Hobart.
Naomi meets up with Lee again and gives him the car key she took from Paul's apartment with instructions to go check out the Lassiters car park. Lee picks up the key and goes to investigate.
Number 22 backyard
Ethan accidentally kicks the footy into #22 after Paige asked him not to play inside. He re- acquaints himself with Imogen after they briefly chatted in Harold's and drops it in that he's Paige's friend from Hobart as requested. She is inquisitive and starts asking questions, which almost causes him to trip himself up, but he quickly says that he can hear Paige so he can leave.
Kyle explains to Terese why he's in such a good mood when she is curious about it while he's doing the shopping. However his happy mood is somewhat soured when as they chat, Terese is puzzled as to why he thinks he is getting paid for the beds when usually they are donated.
TERESE: Maybe you're a special exception!
Georgia is still on cloud nine after getting her ring back. Meanwhile Naomi leaves to meet Lee after texting him to see if he liked the car and is interested in another job.
A sombre looking Kyle swaps places with his aunt and gets it confirmed from Georgia that she's been paying for the beds out of her own pocket and explains why. He isn't chuffed at his “girlfriend supporting me” and she explains that it wasn't going to be forever, just as a kick- start for his business.
GEORGIA: And hey it worked, you've got a contract with that company. You can't be mad about that?
He doesn't have a comeback to her question/statement, so she pleads with him to let her know what she can do to make things better but he doesn't reply, instead walks off to his bedroom.
Lee is nervously waiting for Naomi too appear, fearful that he is going to be caught in Paul's car. She shows him what she wanted to meet for – photos of him getting into Paul's car and essentially threatening to use it if he blabs about her. He thinks she is bluffing as it will also land her in it but she reminds him of his criminal record and he's got more to lose than her. She then orders him to hand over the keys to the car, he's walking home!
Naomi explains to Paul that she “borrowed” his car to go get him the best curry ever since he's obviously needs taking care of. Paul buys it and she leaves him to eat the curry.
Imogen returns the footy that Ethan kicked over the fence and the pair seem to be getting on like a house on fire but she makes a hasty retreat as soon as Paige arrives home. Paige isn't amused at her brother and warns him off Imogen since she's her sister… “which basically means she's your sister as well.”
Their chat moves onto her feelings about how it's going (or not) and he reminds her that they both know she can lose the plot when her emotions get the better of her.
PAIGE: Okay, there may have been a small issue the other night.
ETHAN: I knew it. I knew as soon as I heard your message. What did you do?
“Nothing,” is her initial reply but then goes onto say about smashing some things and Ethan's quick to get in that is why he is here.
ETHAN: You over- react to situations, lose it and go crazy. I don't want that happening here too.
PAIGE: It won't okay… not this time.
Kyle arrives to explain that he gets why Georgia did what she did then goes onto say that there needs to be more honesty from them both to avoid getting caught up. “It was out of love,” she tells him adding that he has lied to her too. “I know that and I'm not leaving myself out of this,” he replies knowing full well that he is the one who started all the ‘trust issues'. “So where does that leave us?” Georgia asks Kyle then says that they shouldn't set a date for the wedding just yet.
KYLE: I think we need to figure out if we're ready.
Tomorrow on Neighbours
