- Sheila tells Paul that he knows Naomi deserves better than him
- Affected by Sheila's words, Paul tells Naomi that nothing can happen between them
- Mark is confused by Paige's apparent blowing hot and cold with Tyler
- Daniel tells Amber he doesn't yet want Josh to know that he could be the baby's father
- When Imogen learns Josh could be the father, she says she'll tell him if Amber doesn't
Amber is telling Daniel about Imogen's ultimatum – she argues that they can't expect Imogen to keep their secret from Josh. Daniel offers to take some time off work so they can go and tell Josh the news together, but Amber says it's best if she does it on her own.
Paige comes in looking for Amber. Imogen says she's gone to talk to Josh about the baby's paternity, and swiftly lays into Paige for lying to Josh about the due date.
IMOGEN: Why would you do that?
PAIGE: Because her dad had just died. And she was freaking out about losing Daniel too.
Paige insists they'd always have told Josh once the paternity results were in, and says she had to make a call for the best. But Imogen accuses Paige of always having been closer to the Turners than the Willises. Paige retorts that she only did the best she could to protect Amber and thereby the baby, and that she isn't going to apologise for that. She walks out.
In the garden, Amber has told Josh that the baby could be his or Daniel's. She insists she would have told him after the paternity test, and Josh believes her – he's not angry at Amber for keeping it from him, as she feared he would be. Josh now understands why Daniel's been so hostile to him.
AMBER: He just wants me and the baby to be okay.
JOSH: Even if it's mine?
AMBER: We'll cross that bridge if we come to it.
Their conversation is interrupted when Danni calls Josh's mobile – but he ignores the call, and asks Amber when the paternity test will be.

Naomi tells Paul she's spoken to four different lawyers, and that the contract for the sale of Lassiter's to the Quill Group can't be broken. Paul's disappointed, as he's fed up of Ezra ‘ruining the good name' of the hotel. Naomi tells him he should move on and focus on other projects.
PAUL: Like a five- star hotel that will blow Hanley and the Quill Group out of the water!
NAOMI: This is Erinsborough, not Dubai. There's no way two hotels can survive in this market.
She encourages Paul to take B2 for a walk, and to think of something constructive to do with his life while he's out. But he still seems keen on the idea of building another hotel.
Paige comes in; Daniel explains that Amber's still not back from talking to Josh. He says he's thinking of going round to check up on them, but when Paige says it's not a good idea, he coldly tells her that she doesn't get a vote.
DANIEL: It was your idea to lie to Josh in the first place. You were more than happy to wade in when you were the one calling the shots.
Paige gets annoyed with his attitude, and insists she's trying to help him and Amber.
DANIEL: Why don't you just stay out of it for once?
PAIGE: Right. Because this is my fault! Am I the one who went on some stupid kids' treasure hunt, on my wedding day? Am I the one who slept with my ex- boyfriend the second the going got tough? No. You wanna be angry? Fine. You are so entitled to be. But I am not the one you're angry with. Her name is Amber. And the sooner that you deal with that, the better it is for everyone.
Naomi is telling Sheila about Paul's plans for a second hotel. They find themselves agreeing that Paul is pig- headed and unreasonable.
SHEILA: And this is the man you thought you were in love with a few weeks ago.
NAOMI: Well, we all have our moments of madness.
SHEILA: Some more than others. Can you imagine waking up to Moneybags every single morning?
Naomi changes the subject, allowing Sheila to moan about Ezra's planned audit of The Waterhole. Mark turns up, and Sheila hurries off to ‘surprise' him with a drink, allowing Mark a chance to talk to Naomi. They seem to be getting on well to the point of mild flirtation, and agree to have a ‘friendly' pool match together.
Amber has revealed to Josh that she has an ultrasound this afternoon, and that Daniel's going with her. Amber asks Josh if he'd like to come too, seemingly out of politeness, but looks worried when he says he would.
Daniel turns up, interrupting their conversation. Things are tense between Daniel and Josh, and worse still when Josh begins to tactlessly apologise for sleeping with Amber! He insists that if they'd known the truth about where Daniel and Imogen were on the night of the wedding, nothing would have happened. Defensively, Daniel takes Amber's hand, and says the important thing is that they still love each other and will love the baby too – no matter what happens.
JOSH: Man, you must have wanted to deck me so many times!
If Josh is trying not to annoy Daniel, he couldn't be doing a worse job – and sensing this, Amber encourages Daniel to leave with her. Josh says that if they need help in any way, to let him know. But Daniel crossly insists that they have it covered.
Imogen finds Daniel sitting pensively on the boot of his car. She apologises if she made things harder by threatening to tell Josh about the baby, but says she couldn't just stand by. Daniel understands and says it's cool, and actually kind of a relief.
IMOGEN: So we're okay?
DANIEL: Yeah. You did the right thing. Well, I should be used to that by now!
IMOGEN: Oh, wow. You make me sound like so much fun!
DANIEL: Voted best person to be stuck down a well with!
Daniel goes quiet again, and she asks how he's really coping with the Amber/Josh/baby situation.
DANIEL: I dunno. I'm just making it up as I go along.
IMOGEN: You're a good person, with a really good heart. Just follow that, and I know you'll be fine.
Daniel doesn't respond to this, but heads into No 32, saying he needs to hurry Amber along for the ultrasound appointment. Imogen walks sadly away.
Naomi is thrashing Mark at pool, much to his horror – while Sheila is encouraging their decision to socialise with one another by bringing them bar snacks to nibble on. Naomi asks after Tyler and his romance with Paige; Mark makes out that he's not bothered by it, and says he doubts it's serious.
Paul comes in with B2, and Sheila goes insane – saying she'll be in big trouble with Ezra if he finds the dog in here. Paul grudgingly goes to leave again – but as he does, he's saddened to see Mark and Naomi having fun together, oblivious to his presence. He walks out.
Georgia is applying gel to Amber's belly as she and Karl prepares to perform the ultrasound. Josh turns up, to Daniel's visible dismay – Amber hadn't told him that he'd been invited. Georgia seems surprised, but Karl says it's fine for them both to be there.
Paige comes in and finds Mark alone, racking up the pool table. Paige moans about how her family is blaming her for Amber's baby paternity debacle, and Mark offers her a chat and a sympathetic ear. But it turns out Naomi has just been getting drinks for them at the bar, and she looks put out to see that Paige has turned up. Paige is uncomfortable too when she realises she's interrupted, and insists on leaving so Mark and Naomi can get back to their pool game. Naomi asks Mark if she scared Paige off, but Mark says she just has family dramas.
NAOMI: You should go after her if you want.
MARK: No, she's got Tyler now. It's not my place.
Mark adds that he's having fun with Naomi, and they go off to resume their game.
Amber, Josh and Daniel are looking at ultrasound images of the baby on the monitor, and listening to the heartbeat, as Karl explains what they're seeing. He says everything seems normal with the baby so far. Josh continues to be tactlessly enthusiastic about the scan – even suggesting that they get a 3D one done.
DANIEL: Sounds like a bit of a gimmick to me.
Georgia takes Amber's blood pressure, and finds that it's higher than they would like. Karl asks if Amber's had any headaches or blurred vision. She says she had, but thought they were part of morning sickness. Karl reassures her, and says they'll do some more tests in a while, once she's rested – pointedly suggesting that the boys leave the room.
Josh leaves, but Amber insists that Daniel stay. She begins to worry that she's endangered the baby by not mentioning the symptoms earlier. Karl tells her to relax, but glances apprehensively at Georgia.
Imogen is in the garden working, while Josh distracts her by talking enthusiastically about Amber's baby. He thanks her for standing up for him by insisting Amber tell him he might be the father.
IMOGEN: Well it's my job to stick up for you. You're my brother. Even when I think you've been an opportunistic creep.
JOSH: Wow. Thanks (!)
IMOGEN: What else do you call taking advantage of someone who's literally just been left at the altar?
JOSH: I don't have to defend myself to you.
IMOGEN: Do you seriously not feel bad at all about any of this?
JOSH: Yeah, of course I do. But if the baby's mine, it's not all bad, is it?
IMOGEN: Yes, it is! She's with Daniel!
Josh looks smug.
IMOGEN: No, please don't tell me that you think this is the first step to you and Amber getting back together?
Before he can answer, Paige comes in and starts laying into Josh about raising Amber's blood pressure. She says it's back to normal now, but accuses him of being the cause of it, by ‘gatecrashing' the ultrasound. Paige says this is exactly why she told Amber to wait before telling Josh he could be the father.
JOSH: Yeah, I've been meaning to thank you for that little bit of sisterly support (!)
PAIGE: Oh, grow up, Josh. This isn't about you, or me, or Amber. It's about the baby and what it needs.
JOSH: If I'm the father of the baby it actually is about me. But you got one thing right – it isn't about you. I think you'd better start remembering that.
Josh walks off.
Paul wants to arrange an appointment with his solicitor for Daniel, to talk about his rights as a father. He tells Daniel he needs to ‘protect himself' – arguing that Amber's already betrayed him once, and that Josh has ‘his own agenda'. But Daniel retorts that he isn't interested in turning the situation into a battleground, and Paul stalks off bad- temperedly.

As they have a glass of wine, Paul is moaning to Naomi about how Daniel wouldn't accept his help – he says he only wants to stop him from being hurt or taken for a ride. Paul then mentions Naomi's pool game with Mark earlier, and asks when they got back together. She tells him they haven't, and asks why Paul cares. He claims he just likes to know what his employees are up to, but Naomi doesn't look as if she's buying it – and assures him she and Mark are just friends.
NAOMI: He did ask me to go kayaking with him, though.
PAUL: Excuse me? You, kayaking?!
NAOMI: I know! Has he even met me?
Imogen is surprised to see Amber working, given that her blood pressure's been up. Amber says it's settled down, but seems to acknowledge that it was up due to the presence of two potential fathers in the room at the hospital! Imogen gives her a withering look, and Amber demands to know what it was in aid of.
IMOGEN: Amber, you didn't just get struck by lightning. You made this happen.
AMBER: Excuse me?
IMOGEN: You and Josh did not even wait 24 hours. One moment of doubt about Daniel, and you jump straight back into bed together.
AMBER: I can't believe you're saying this.
IMOGEN: Well somebody needs to.
AMBER: You should go.
IMOGEN: Yeah. I agree. And just for the record – if Daniel was with me, I never would have done this to him. Never.
Imogen leaves, and Amber looks annoyed.
Mark is having a beer at the bar, when Paul comes in. He provocatively asks Mark if Naomi's responded to his kayaking invite yet!
MARK: That's none of your business, Paul.
PAUL: Oh, Brennan, what were you thinking? Kayaking?! Honestly, does Naomi look like the sort of person that wants to put on a lifejacket?
MARK: Thanks for your unsolicited advice. I know exactly what to do with it.
Mark prepares to leave.
PAUL: Are you genuine?
PAUL: Well, do you like her, or are you just killing time?
MARK: Yes, I like her. We had a good thing going until you got involved.
PAUL: Well, good. Because if you want her back you're gonna have to lift your game.
MARK: Hang on, what? You're giving me advice?
PAUL: Dating advice, yeah. You need it.
MARK: And why would I take dating advice from you? I'm not stupid – I know that you want her all to yourself.
PAUL: Wanting and having are two different things.
MARK: Hang on a minute. I don't speak Paul Robinson. So why don't you say it again in English?
PAUL: You are better for her than I am. And I just want her to be happy. So do you want my advice, or not?
