Georgia explains she means about how long it took her to forgive him about Kate. Kyle denies it. Georgia thinks theyre two completely different situations. Kyle points out a lie is a lie and is he not allowed to feel hurt? He gets in the car and leaves.
Toadie wanders in and thanks Sonya for the sleep in. Toadie comments a night out with Stonie is always a late one. Sonya is in a good mood as she had eight hours sleep Toadie didnt snore and Nell didnt wake up as her night light was fixed. Baileys doing ok and Brennans moving forward. Georgia and Kyle ar'e going through a rough patch but she thinks theyll work it out. Toadie guesses shes free as he wanted to suggest they take Nell off to the Sanctuary. Sonya didnt think hed want to be doing anything today so she convinced Mark to have a few people over and she would help out. Toadie guesses the place will still be there. Sonya checks if hes sure and he is. She hands him breakfast and hes impressed. Toadie tells Nell he doesnt feel good and she responds.
Mark asks if hes missed anything. Sonya reassures him and shes impressed she thought he would have taken back the idea. Mark comments Ethan might have had something to do with it.

Naomi asks if Toadies there. Sonya explains hes babysitting Nell and catching up on work. Naomi comments Sonyas got the afternoon off and she laughs. Naomi looks rather happy at this prospect.
The party has got going. Daniel arrives and exchanges glances with Amber whom is sitting on the sofa with Josh. Paige is pleased to see him.
PAIGE: You made it!
DANIEL: Yeah yeah I thought why not? Plus I wanted to check out the house. My Mum used to live here.
DANIEL: Yeah yeah. Best years of her life apparently. Obviously having me was the low point.
Paige agrees and asks how life is in Erinsborough. She asks for tips for a newcomer. He tells her not to camp by the lake. She sarcastically tells him thats really helpful! She asks him if hes got close to anyone in particular. Daniel comments everyone seems very friendly.
Sonya tells Mark this is a party so he needs to go and mingle. Mark tells Sonya to go and relax. Sonya reminds him why hes doing this to have fun, to relax, to get to know his neighbours. So far she isnt seeing any evidence of this. She tells him to step away from the coasters and get himself a drink. Mark reluctantly agrees.
Toadie answers the door to Naomi. She heard he was stuck at home and she thought he could use some food. Toadie tells her his heart and stomach thank her. He asks how its going over there. Naomi says things are starting to warm up. He asks if Sonyas having a good time. Naomi comments shes being a good friend to Brennan and helping out. She doesnt think Mark feels very comfortable in a crowd. She wonders why he threw a party in the first place. Toadie explains it was friendly coercion from Sonya and Naomi understands that makes sense.
She asks if everything is alright. Toadie agrees it is hes actually procrastinating. She says she meant between him and Sonya. He might tell her to butt out (I would) but she gets the feeling things havent improved between them. Toadie admits the work life balance can get a bit bumpy and if Nell hasnt slept and he hasnt slept... Things get a bit amplified. Theres nothing they can't work through thats what they are doing. He thinks he should get back to his work whilst Nell is still sleeping and she should get back to the party. Naomi doesnt think shes really in the mood anymore. Toadie asks if the creeps done something. Naomi thinks hes gotten bored shes still a little spooked. Toadie agrees. Shed be happy to stick around and help him with some of the work. She would like the quiet company she doesnt get it at home. Toadie accepts if shes sure. He asks if shes having second thoughts. She says possibly and laughs.
Chris catches up and apologises to Kyle whos waiting for him. They see Bailey and ask him if hes coming to the party. He has to go to work and Kyle wishes hed thought of that excuse.

Paige tells Ethan he can give him a hand. Ethan is busy mingling. Paige tells him to do less mingling and more helping. She looks in the fridge and sees theres no ice. Imogen says shes got ice at her place theyve always got a few spare. Ethan says hell go to the Servo. Paige will sort it out. Imogen insists its fine its right next door. She indicates for Ethan to follow her.
Imogen confirms Ethans on a gap year but his parents are supporting him financially. Ethan thinks the moneys there and someone its's got to spend it. Imogen suggests hes just the man for the job and he agrees. She asks him whats next on the list he says it might be a trip to Bordeau. Theyve got family friends in a villa there. He invites her along she points out shes got her VCE. Ethan tells her she should try being more spontaneous. He spots the drawing of Brad and says they should get the bags back to the party. Imogen is curious how Ethan and Paige became friends he seems very laid back and shes so prickly. Ethan thinks shes not once you get to know her. He thinks Imogens pretty prickly herself. Ethan suggests she should give Paige another chance they might find they have more in common than they think.
Imogen is sick of talking about Paige and leans over and kisses Ethan. Ethan looks at the picture again. Imogen points out he said she should be more spontaneous. Ethan feels like theyre being watched. Imogen says its a drawing her parents wont be home for hours. Ethan relaxes and kisses her.

She never wants to hurt him again. They kiss and head for the bedroom.
Daniel grabs a beer and Amber offers Josh another drink Josh agrees. Paige is looking out of the window and Daniel asks whom shes waiting for. She denies waiting for anybody. She asks where he got his clothes from. He got them from op shops. He cuts them and sews them back together. Paige is surprised he sews his grandma taught him. Paige confirms its the one whom lived here it is. Paige offers him a tour he was wondering when she was going to offer. She thinks they should start with her bedroom.
Amber whom has been watching Paige and Daniels conversation asks Josh if they can go home. Shes not feeling that well. Josh asks whats wrong. Amber says shes feeling a bit blah she might have overdone it on the snacks. Josh agrees and they leave. We see Ambers bag on the seat.
Josh and Amber arrive. Bailey asks them if the partys over already it doesnt look as if he missed out on much. Josh explains Amber wasnt feeling great. Bailey asks why she didnt go home.

Bailey thinks it was weird. Josh agrees and wonders if he should go after her. Bailey disagrees. He wonders if Josh can help him start up a new training programme. Josh agrees.
Toadie is checking his phone and Toadie asks if everything is alright. Toadie thought he would have heard from Sonya by now. Naomi tshinks she must be partying hard Naomi apologises she didnt mean that. Toadie knows she didnt. She asks if Toadie ever gets worried about Sonya relapsing. Toadie admits its always there in the back of his mind. Naomi thinks Sonyas taking on a lot at the moment. Toadie thinks she means with work, an amazing one- year- old, writing a blog, AA and counselling half the neighbourhood. It isnt much at all! They laugh. Naomi thinks he should suggest Sonya has a break. She should go on one of those retreats or visit her friends in Daylesford. Toadie nods thoughtfully. She could seek clarity and she thinks it might do their relationship some good. Nell responds cheerfully and Naomi thinks she shouldnt have said that and apologises. Toadie repeats that things havent been what they should be between them of late. Naomi suggests some distance between them might give them both perspective.
Ethan comes in with the ice and Imogen is smiling happily. Paige asks them if they got lost. Neither answer. Paige tells Ethan they need a word. She takes him off and asks what hes doing. He tells her to relax there was no sign of Brad. Ethan looks over at Imogen and Sonya talking. Paige asks what that stupid grin on his face is. Ethan thinks hes in love. Paige gives him a look and Ethan says hes kidding but she is frigging awesome. Paige tells him to end whatever is going on here. Him being here could ruin everything. He tells her to calm down.
Georgia and Kyle come out of the bedroom and gather everyone together. Georgia thanks Mark for the party and a long overdue welcome to the neighbourhood that includes Paige. They really want to steal their thunder. Kyle tells everyone to keep the first week of October free theyre getting married! Everyone cheers, congratulates and hugs them as we go into the commercial break.
Paige is clearing up as Daniel comes in. He tells her its the last of the stuff from outside. She tells him he didnt have to stay and help clean up. Shes glad he did and hes happy to help.
