Karl says they need to be honest and tell the truth and they'll get protection from the police. Nate says it's a lovely idea but Karl is living in la- la land if he thinks that's true. Even if Dimato is put away he's got friends and friends of friends. They'll never be safe. Karl asks what they're meant to do. Nate advises them to keep quiet but Susan and Karl aren't comfortable with that. Nate needs tonight to think about it. If he hasn't got a better solution by tomorrow morning they'll go to the police.

Brad asks if Lauren was with someone. She wasn't. Brad can't stop her being with someone, they're not together. Tyler suggests he wants to be with Lauren.

Piper is lying on the couch as Imogen and Josh arrive home. Imogen wants to know how Daniel said he was surprised about Imogen moving on.

Aaron points out there's a reason Nate did that, anyone would have. Nate says that normal people don't go around beating people up because they don't like something they see. Aaron says Nate should get help for his PTSD. Nate has put Aaron and his family at risk. Aaron says they can handle this. Nate is scared of what he did and what he became today. Aaron says it's fine.

Brad pays for his drink and then he helps Lauren through the door with a box. Brad asks Lauren what happened last night. She says it was great.
BRAD: Did you talk to anyone interesting after I left?
LAUREN: Does Steph count?!
They laugh and Lauren says she's getting to know Steph better, she's really nice. Brad asks if anyone asked for Lauren's number and notes it's strange that no- one did. Lauren clicks that Brad wants to know if anyone asked her out. Brad says he has no right to ask that and leaves.
Daniel's sitting at a table and Lauren asks him if Terese is making him do homework. He says he's not doing that. Lauren awaits an explanation and Daniel explains he sent Paul an e- card for his birthday. Daniel hasn't had confirmation that it's been opened and Lauren checks if Daniel has the right address. Daniel confirms Paul has definitely got it but it's sitting in his inbox.

Nate knows they care but thinks they're better off without him. Susan says they love Nate and would have supported him through this. Karl says Nate would still be here if it wasn't for Dimato. Mark comes out and asks why they're talking about Dimato.
Piper arrives. Tyler says hehas been flat out so couldn't go through the invoices but knows she can handle it and she knows the ropes. She tells him he's babbling. She says they should talk about what happened between them instead of ignoring it.
Tyler says if Brad found out he would kill Tyler. Piper asks if that's the only obstacle as Piper likes a challenge. Tyler says this is serious and they can't go any further. Piper asks if he's still hung up on her sister and he says he explained that. She explains she's talking about Imogen and Tyler says it was nothing. Piper asks why they can't be together. Tyler says she's still at school and Piper says she's not in Year Seven. Girls are way more mature than guys. Nearly all the girls in her year have older boyfriends. Tyler points out those same girls don't share a house with their boyfriend's Dad. Piper asks if he likes her and he eventually says yes. Piper says he's not prepared to find a way around it. Tyler says there's no way around this. Piper says there is if he thinks she's worth it. He doesn't answer so she goes to leave. He calls after her but she says she'll work somewhere else today. She says Brad is one thing but if Tyler doesn't want to make it work there's nothing else to say.
Daniel arrives and says he hopes he didn't wake Imogen. She says he didn't as she was just reading. He says it was good to run into her last night and Imogen asks if he needed something. Daniel just wanted to check if she's ok, they're not together but he still cares about her. Imogen thought they had this conversation last week! Daniel doesn't want any awkwardness between them. Imogen says Daniel has to focus on his job and she has to (making it up on the spot) focus on lots of other things. Daniel points out that's exactly why they can't be together right now. It's due to work but not any other reason. He really wants to focus on his job and it would be too much and unfair to be in a relationship. Imogen says she knows. He doesn't want her to stop believing in love because of Daniel's choice. Imogen tells him not to flatter himself! She'd be up for it if the right guy came along. Daniel suggests they try being friends and Imogen wonders if that's a good idea. Daniel thinks it's a good idea as they were friends before they got together so he doesn't see why they can't be. It would be weird at first but worth it if they give it a try. She invites him for a cup of tea and he accepts.
Mark arrives and asks Paige who's working if they can have a word. Mark knows Dimato assaulted Michelle and Paige asks how he knows. Mark explains that Nate saw and went all vigilante on Dimato. Nate has now done a runner so they no longer have an eye witness. Paige realises Mark wants her to talk to Michelle. Mark wants to know where Michelle is, Paige explains she took her to the shelter. Mark says she's not there anymore. Mark called the place and she's checked herself out. Paige wonders why Michelle would do that as it was the only place Michelle was safe.
Imogen and Daniel are enjoying a cup of tea. Imogen is surprised Daniel is back working at Lassiter's as he hated it the first time. Daniel says he had a bad attitude then and Imogen comments Paul has a bad attitude about it now. Daniel says Paul thinks Daniel taking the job is a direct dig at him. Daniel figured Paul would disown him anyway and Daniel really wants to forge a career in hotels. If Daniel can emulate Paul's career maybe he can give Paul the helping hand Paul gave Daniel. Imogen hopes this isn't still about Daniel making things up to Paul. Daniel says it's about a new direction, a challenge. He is never interfering in anyone's business ever again. He should have come clean when the headlines came out but he wasn't brave enough. Daniel thought he could teach Paul a lesson. It's ironic Daniel learnt the biggest lesson. Daniel lost everything and everyone. Imogen points out she came around and she's sure Paul will too. Daniel says he reached out to Paul for his birthday but Paul didn't engage. Daniel gets that Paul still hurts. Daniel knows how Imogen must have felt when he broke things off with her. Imogen says she should never have talked to the police as they would have caught up with Paul anyway. Daniel understands that now and he was a total hypocrite to react the way he did. He got so angry at Imogen at ratting out Paul when he did exactly the same. Daniel says he's sorry. She goes upstairs saying she needs to get out of her pyjamas.
Josh comes in and asks Piper why she's not doing the papers at the garage. She says the garage is hot and stuffy and smells like petrol. Josh says he's meeting Brad for a coffee and invites Piper to join them. Piper agrees to as she's nearly done. Josh asks what's going on and she says it's nothing.

Piper has seen Tyler for a bit and he was fine. Brad checks if Tyler spoke about Brad. Piper wants to know why they're asking twenty questions. Brad explains he feels he's getting in the way in the house. Piper doesn't know what's going through Tyler's head. She needs to concentrate and goes to another table.
Brad wants to know what's going on and Josh thinks it's because the guy at school isn't keen on Piper. Brad thinks it's a shame and asks if Josh ever met the guy. Josh didn't and doesn't know the guy's name. Josh asks what's happening with Tyler. Brad thought he was cramping Tyler's style last night. Brad was sure Tyler had a girl there but he got the girl out in a hurry when Brad arrived. Josh asks if Brad got a look at the girl but Brad didn't.
