- Amber tells Lauren that the baby is Josh's
- Daniel gets mad and smashes up Off Air
- Paige tells Mark she's not dating Tyler, and that she was really in love with Mark
- Tyler and Paige pretend to have been getting frisky when Mark finds them in the garage at night
- Paige and Tyler find a broken piece of plastic down the well, a clue to the identity of the money thief
- Lauren unwittingly tells Terese about her innocent sleepover with Brad
Terese comes in, and confronts Brad about Lauren spending the night here while Terese was away in Canada. Brad insists it was perfectly innocent and accidental, and Terese notes that his version of the story tallies with Lauren's.
TERESE: So why didn't you say anything to me?
BRAD: Because I didn't think it was a big deal!
He adds that he and Terese had just started to get back on track, and that he didn't want to upset her. Terese says she has no reason to disbelieve Brad about what happened that night, but still seems annoyed. Imogen listens in from upstairs, meanwhile.
Sonya has brought Nell to the bar. She is telling Daniel and Amber about the bee sting incident and how terrifying it is as a parent when your kid's in danger. So Amber distracts Nell from thinking about bees by drawing pictures of cats and houses, while Daniel goes to fetch her a drink.
Josh winds up a mobile phone conversation with an employment agency as Daniel passes. Daniel wonders if Josh will have time to work alongside his studying and community service, but Josh says the latter is nearly finished – and says he's serious about making the baby situation work for all of them by earning some extra cash. Josh goes on to say he's devised a financial plan for the baby, but Daniel is keen to have more of an ad hoc arrangement.
JOSH: I'm just stepping up to do my part. Anything that Amber and the baby need, I'll make sure they get it.
Daniel doesn't object, but seems annoyed.
Tyler and Paige continue to examine the broken keyring piece, but aren't any closer to finding out whose it is, and therefore who took the money. Tyler suggests they could steal one last car in order to earn back the cash they owe Michelle, but Paige refuses to countenance this – and likewise, Tyler refuses to get a loan shark involved, as they'll only have more interest to pay.
Tyler gets a text from Michelle, asking him to meet a guy at the garage at 2pm, in order to hand over the $50,000 cash. But at this point they're interrupted by Mark, and they tell him they're doing the garage accounts. Mark also recognises the keyring, as one that the East Side Dingoes footie club gives out to their players. Paige claims she found it at the Lassiter's Complex. Mark's about to ask more, but decides he's not interested and leaves.
Once he's gone, Paige admits she should have recognised the Dingoes logo, as she sees it every day at the gym. They decide to try and suss out anyone on the footie team who's recently come into money, and to check out the team's page on that renowned social networking site, Blah- Blah.
In the kitchen, Lauren apologises to Brad for dropping him in it with Terese, though he admits he should have told Terese about Lauren sleeping over himself.
LAUREN: How can we expect our own kids to behave maturely if we can't?
BRAD: Oh – by we, you mean me?
LAUREN: Yeah, well not telling Terese about that evening, you made something innocent feel like something sordid. I'm sorry for the tough talk – I'm just getting tired of all this.
BRAD: Of all what?
LAUREN: Of being part of the problem in your marriage.
Terese is sorting through some of Imogen and Josh's old baby clothes, in case Amber can use any of them. Imogen, who is watching, quizzes Terese about the argument she overheard between her and Brad, and asks if it represents another marriage crisis. Terese insists she and Brad are okay, but Imogen thinks Lauren took things too far by staying over.
Terese then tells Imogen about Matt asking Brad to look after Lauren before he died – and how Brad has been supporting her as a result, but is now stepping back.
IMOGEN: Wow. I really had it in my head that they'd crossed the line.
TERESE: No, that's never gonna happen.
IMOGEN: Well, I never thought that Amber would do what she did with Josh on the night of the wedding, so… I'm sorry. I should really think before I speak.
But Terese again insists she and Brad will be fine; they just need to focus on Josh and his impending fatherhood.
Sonya and Daniel are watching Amber as she entertains Nell. Daniel says Amber's great with kids, then asks Sonya about the costs of having children. He admits he's worried about the bar's profitability – he'd only ever intended to make enough money for him and Amber to get by, and hadn't factored in the extra costs of having a kid. Sonya offers to give Daniel some business advice based on what she's learned from owning the nursery, and to go through his books with him. Daniel quickly agrees, and Sonya goes to ask Amber to take Nell to the park while they work.
Paige has used the Dingoes website to deduce that the keyring she found belonged to someone on the 2014 team. Mark comes in from a run, bragging about how far he's gone. He sits down next to Paige, who closes the laptop slightly, and says he's noticed how she and Tyler always go quiet when he comes into the room.
PAIGE: You make it sound like we're hiding something.
MARK: Look, after everything we've been through, can't we just be honest? I know it's a bit weird that you're dating my brother, but you guys are great together. You don't need to tiptoe around me.
PAIGE: Me and Tyler, huh? It's not how you imagine.
MARK: Yeah, I try not to imagine anything at all. But seriously, it's great seeing you here.
PAIGE: So it's not too strange for you?
MARK: No, I'd love you to come round more often. You mean a lot to me, Paige. It's great that we can still be mates.
Paige agrees that they're clear on where they stand, but looks worried as Mark leaves the room.
A while later, Paige and Tyler scour the footie team's Blah- Blah page to search for more clues as to the owner of the keyring, but there's nothing unusual. Tyler's worried about what Michelle will do if he turns up without the right amount of cash.
Just then, Paige notices that Jayden Warley has been bragging about spending big money on Blah- Blah, and wonders if he may have seen them throw the money down the well – noting that Jayden's ‘trouble', as evidenced by his past dealings with Bailey. Jayden's profile says he's at the Lassiter's Complex, so Paige rushes off to find him. Tyler wants to go too, but Paige says she has a better chance alone.
Sonya's trying to be upbeat about the bar's accounts, telling Daniel that breaking even is good for a new start- up business. But he's concerned he's barely covering his own expenses. Sonya suggests that Daniel ask for Paul's advice, but Daniel says he wants to prove to his uncle that he can manage things by himself.
DANIEL: You know about the baby, right?
SONYA: Yeah, look, I know about Josh. Surely if he's part of this, that should reduce the financial burden on you?
DANIEL: No, no – my family, my responsibilities. That's the way this is gonna work. Oh, who am I kidding? I should just cut my losses and sell the bar.
But Sonya tells him he has plenty of time, and not to rush into a decision.
SONYA: You're gonna be such a wonderful dad, Daniel. Not everything's about money.
Terese is showing Josh all the old baby- clothes she found from when the twins were kids. Josh is overwhelmed by the fact that his own child will soon be wearing them, but says he can't wait to show Amber. Terese says she knows Josh still has feelings for Amber, but reminds him that she's happy with Daniel.
JOSH: I'm not gonna put pressure on her.
TERESE: And Daniel?
JOSH: Yeah, Daniel's an okay guy. But he's all about living the moment. Amber needs someone who's planning for the future. I'm playing the long game. I'll keep showing Amber that I'm there for her and the baby until she realises she belongs with me.
Terese looks worried.
Paige accosts Jayden, who is skating outside Harold's.
JAYDEN: Ah. Bailey's sister. Always knew you were hot for me.
PAIGE: Yuck! What is in the bag?
JAYDEN: What's it to you?
PAIGE: I know that you went down the well and stole my money.
JAYDEN: You've lost it, sister.
She snatches his bag off him to inspect it, but it only contains comic books. Paige shows him the keyring piece, saying she knows it's his. But Jayden takes his own whole keyring from his pocket, and shows it to her.
JAYDEN: You've lost some cash – maybe I can help you.
Paige walks away, but as she does, Jayden tells her he's onto her. She looks worried, and sits down to make a phone call to Tyler.
Fitzgerald Motors / Lassiter's Complex
On the phone, Paige tells Tyler that the keyring wasn't Jayden's, and says they'll have to tell the guy who's collecting the money to wait, until they can find a way to get the missing $6,000. She adds that she's going to the bank to ask for a cash advance. Tyler says he'll tell the guy they don't have the cash yet, but suspects that the result won't be pretty. The guy in question, Michael Coluzzi, then turns up, and asks Tyler what he's got for him.
Meanwhile, Sonya is locking up Kyle's yard, having been double- checking some paperwork for him while he's away. She's on the phone to Toadie, and says she'll see him at home – but as she hangs up, she sees Coluzzi being physically intimidatory towards Tyler from a distance. Tyler tells Coluzzi there's been a hitch, but that he can get the money for him in a day.
COLUZZI: There'll be a fee involved.
Coluzzi goes to check with ‘the boss', while Sonya looks worried at what she's seen.
Terese is looking through an album full of baby photos of the twins. Brad comes in with a bunch of flowers for her, as a thank you for saying that she trusts him earlier. But Terese seems more worried about Josh and his becoming a father. Brad says they'll be there for Josh, but Terese says she's had time to think.
TERESE: I need you to understand that keeping quiet about Lauren sleeping here was not on.
BRAD: It's a fair call.
TERESE: No, I really mean it, Brad. The kids, our grandchild, they need support and stability, not feuding parents. So the next time you try and keep something this major from me, I'm not gonna give you the benefit of the doubt.
BRAD: I won't let you down again. I am here for you, for our children and our grandchild. You believe me, don't you?
TERESE: … Yes, of course I do.
She doesn't look entirely convinced, though. Brad promises not to cross that line again.
Daniel is not too pleased to find Amber and Josh sitting together on a bench, chatting. Amber is still looking after Nell, but has run into Josh along the way; he's bought her a load of vitamins and minerals from a health food store.
AMBER: If I take all these pills, then I'm gonna rattle when I walk. But if it's good for the baby then it's worth it.
Josh goes on about how important nutrition is during pregnancy, and Daniel tries to reclaim ground by saying he'll be making ‘shakes for three' now – immediately clarifying by saying he means him, Amber and the baby. Amber offers to pay for some of the supplements as they must have cost a lot, but Josh says he doesn't want to cut corners; he just wants her and the baby to be healthy. Daniel looks worried.
Josh and Amber take Nell home, while Daniel says he has to take care of some things. Once he's alone, he calls somebody and asks for advice about selling a business.
Paige is on the phone to Tyler – he's telling her about the extra day he's negotiated on the cash handover. She promises to see him soon, and hangs up. Lauren senses that Paige is stressed about something, and offers a chat, but Paige doesn't take her up on it. Mark comes in and asks if Paige would like to join him for a drink, but she says she has things to do.
Paige spots that Mark's buying Men's Fitness magazine, and Mark explains he's thinking of running a marathon. Paige thinks this is hilarious, but Mark suggests they could train together, as it always worked well in the past. Paige agrees to stay for a quick coffee to discuss which marathon Mark would run, despite her arrangement to go and meet Tyler.
Jayden calls round, asking Tyler if the ‘hot chick' is still doing car washes. Jayden seems incredibly curious about what's going on inside the garage, and Tyler tersely tells him to get lost.
JAYDEN: Something bothering you, man?
TYLER: Only you.
JAYDEN: Yeah well, I'm good for a bit of cash work – if you've got a few little deals going on on the side.
JAYDEN: She knows where to find me.
Jayden skates off, and Tyler goes to call Paige again. But at that moment, Coluzzi comes back.
COLUZZI: I talked to the boss.
TYLER: What did she say? Is she gonna give us more time to replace the money?
TYLER: I swear I'll have it all to you. Just tell Michelle I'm not gonna mess her around.
COLUZZI: She asked me to pass on a message.
He pulls a crowbar on Tyler…
A short while later, Paige approaches the garage. She's shocked to find Tyler rolling in agony on the floor. She goes to call for help on her phone, but Tyler insists no doctors – they'll ask too many questions.
