- Kyle trying to be peacemaker.
- Brad telling his daughter off for insolence.
- Josh struggling to remember Amber photographing them holding hands together.
- Daniel wanting to stop sneaking around with Amber.
- Josh puzzled about the hands in Lauren's artwork.
Josh is still puzzled about his hand when his sister arrives in the store - she can't face going to school because of her dad.
Having cleared out her belongings from the office, Naomi returns the keys to Toadie before he/Sonya get into the car and leave.
Before entering #24, Naomi takes a look at one of the things she's acquired from the office - one of Toadie's wrestling figures.
Daniel is in a good mood after getting a message from Amber but it's severely tested when an undressed Paul finally makes his way from the bedroom and spots the headline news - that Victor has been sentenced to life for Kate's murder.
Daniel is confiding his fears for Paul to Karl, and is after some advice from the doc on things he can do since Paul is refusing to talk to anyone. His best advice is to make sure he gets out of the apartment but Daniel is unsure if he'd do that if asked.
Amber inadvertently drops Josh in it when she spots Brad and asks if he's seen his son (he hasn't) and is annoyed to discover that he isn't back at school.
Josh is after Imogen's help to show him how to use the app that Amber is always playing when Brad catches his kids skiving school. Imogen has another dig at her dad for how badly the lesson was so he orders the pair of them back to school (having given up his marking time to find them) and that they've got a detention.
Walking through the complex, Chris/Kyle/Georgia are discussing the latest goings on with Naomi/Sheila and Chris scoffs at Georgia wanting to get the pair talking again but she has an idea!
Georgia's plan is for Sheila to help them with a dance for the wedding (Chris is the DJ). Sheila is thrilled to have been asked but then Naomi arrives and you could cut the atmosphere with a knife!
Daniel tries his hardest to get Paul to go for a walk and tells the tale of how having a puppy helped get his mum out of the house when she was upset after Madge died. "After a month or two, she started to get her spark back," and eventually getting out each day helped her come to terms with her mum's death he then adds.
PAUL: You're not getting a puppy!
DANIEL: I will if you don't come with me!
Paul finally concedes to getting dressed and going outside for 10 minutes.
Susan is supervising the Willis kids' detention and catches Josh trying to play the game Amber is into on his phone.
Brad arrives, so Susan steps out into the corridor to talk to him and gets from him why they are in detention (so he didn't show any favouritism) and reassures him that he will find the right balance between dad/teacher before going back into the classroom to supervise the detention.
Daniel tries to prolong the 10 minutes by making Paul stay for a drink and goes to order that from Sonya.
Meanwhile, Sonya gets an admission from Toadie that he did take the day off so not to be in the office when Naomi cleared her things out. Both agree that things are going to be awkward for a wee while.
Kyle/Georgia are perfecting the dance routine Naomi has come up with and declares that they are "perfect" after whey come to a stop and even Chris thinks it's great.
SHEILA: Yes sure if you want to look like a cat that's been electrocuted in slow motion!
KYLE: Now stead on!
SHEILA: Well I saw better dance moves from those 6 year olds that we had at your talent quest.
"We weren't that bad?!" Georgia asks and Naomi butts in to say it wasn't them that Sheila was really criticising. Mother/daughter then begin arguing over what style of dance they should do and Georgia calls a halt by suggesting that they should work together to come up with something suitable. Eventually Sheila asks why they are really here and Georgia is forced to come clean that it's a set up.
SHEILA: I knew it!
Annoyed Sheila then goes to leave the hall before Kyle admits that the plot was so she/Naomi stopped fighting. Georgia asks that they should say what caused the fight and Chris interjects to suggest they have help them patch things up.
"It doesn't matter how it started," Sheila says and this time walks out of the hall, quickly followed by Naomi who thanks her mum for keeping quiet and suggests that they should stay and make an effort. Sheila knocks that one on the head because she thinks they will start fighting all over again. As Sheila goes to leave, she inadvertently knocks Naomi's handbag and discovers the said wrestling figure. Naomi pleads that she is going to make things right and not cause any more trouble despite it not looking that way to Sheila.
Kyle is now dreading the wedding because he doesn't know how Sheila/Naomi will act but to take his mind off of it, Georgia goes onto her phone to play a song so they can practice their first dance.
Their dancing has drawn the attention of Amber who is walking through the park with her brother (who's having a go at her for ignoring Kathy).
AMBER: They're in love. They obviously don't care who knows it. It's how it should be when you're with the one you love.
Daniel gets a message from Amber saying she needs to see him but is torn between going and keeping Paul company/him outside as he seems to be enjoying re-arranging some of Sonya's plants! Sonya tells Daniel to go, she will keep Paul suitably occupied.
Imogen teachers her brother that as well as playing the game, the app allows you to send messages too as they exit the classroom with their detention finished. Almost immediately they run into their dad and the trio seem to come to an understanding to give each other a break.
JOSH: Well you're not a bad dad.
BRAD: High praise!
IMOGEN: But as a teacher you kind of suck so the sooner you sort that out the better!
Toadie can't believe that Paul is voluntarily "working" at the nursery. Paul almost seems devastated when Sonya comes over to where he's watering some plants to say she needs to close up and after checking that he can get home okay, adds that he can come back tomorrow. "Thanks," he replies before walking off.
Toadie arrives home and spots something else in with the mail - the wrestling figure.
Imogen has had enough of playing the app game with Josh and suggests he plays it with Amber instead but the only name he knows is who she is playing - Scoop24. Josh sends Scoop24 a message and is surprised to hear Daniel's phone play a tone just as he is walking through the complex because it's supposed to be a female that Amber is communicating with.
'Has Josh figured it out?' appears onscreen with the Neighbours Twitter hashtag and from the look on his face I'd say he has!
Bailey spots Josh outside #32 and tells him that Amber isn't home so is asked to pass on a message that he is looking for her (there is no answer on her phone). He then says that he might know where his sister is if Josh wants to speak to her right now. "Where?" Josh asks.
Amber lets herself into the darkroom and confirms that she hasn't told Josh because she knows how hurt he is going to be. "Secrecy isn't fair on any of us," Daniel points out and she quickly agrees before they begin pashing... and are sprung big time when Josh opens the door!
