- Ned fearful that Regan's husband will come after him.
- Lucy lining up an audition for Elly at Lassiters Gold Coast hotel.
- Elly discovering her ex is no longer in town.
- Xanthe sneaking out of the house to go to the Gold Coast despite being told she isn't allowed.
Gold Coast, Surfers Paradise
Ben and Madison are taking full advantage of the great Gold Coast beaches by doing some swimming even though she should be preparing for her audition which is in a couple of hours time. He then calls Xanthe to check in and is happy stunned to find she is behind them and both rush towards each other to reunite.
Gold Coast, Surfers Paradise
As they walk along the beach, Xanthe explains to them how she got to Queensland. When they quiz her on if Gary knows she is with them, says that she left a note explaining things!
And from how Sheila has shouted “Xanthe”, she doesn't look too impressed to discover her granddaughter has taking off!
Susan can sense there is gossip to be had from Terese when they meet up (she spotted that there was something up with her) but she's refusing to spill who it was she almost kissed because it's someone from work. In the end Terese can't keep quiet and tells her it was Gary, and is somewhat surprised by Susan telling her “good for you.”
TERESE: No, it's wrong on so many levels.
She may think that but her body language, and how she described what happened to Susan, is the total opposite however their chat is interrupted by Sheila/Gary entering the café to rant on about Xanthe running away to be with Ben. Susan is taking the news in her stride and tries to calm Sheila down by saying Madison will make sure they don't get into trouble. Unseen by Susan/Sheila, Terese and Gary coyly look at each other.
Meanwhile Steph gets a call on her mobile and she's to acknowledge that she can accept the call.
Sheila throws a spanner in Ned's plan to for lunch with Elly as she needs him to cover her shift as she's got to fly to the Gold Coast to chase after Xanthe. Somewhat reluctantly, he agrees to do a double shift.
Steph comes in to tell Mark she's got to go and help a mate so can't do lunch with him.
Gold Coast, Sea World
Xanthe is more interested in taking selfies with Ben than watching the dolphin display going on in the background and she isn't amused that her old mates have plans other than catching up with her.
Meanwhile as they walk together, Lucy explains to her niece how the audition came about and adds that she's kept it quiet from her parents too.
Steph arrives to visit Jacka and once they finish with the small chat, we find out why he asked her to see him – he's heard his wife is doing the dirty on him and begs Steph (who knows his wife) to find out if its true or not.
Susan, Gary and Sheila are having a meeting on how to deal with what has happened. Sheila wants to be the one to go up to the Gold Coast (and conveniently know their every move as Xanthe is updating her Instagram account every 5 minutes!) but Susan suggests she might be better and somewhat reluctantly, Sheila agrees to the plan.
Gary is trying to get to grips with the letter Xanthe wrote (once you get past the ‘I miss Ben' pages, she goes on to write about missing her mum) an he thinks its his fault she took off. Terese tries to reassure him that things will resolve itself and before she leaves, wants to meet up with him privately so they can discuss what happened last night.
Regan arrives to meet Steph and she gets straight to the point – is she having an affair. “It's ridiculous and insulting,” is how Regan refers to the suggestion but then confirms it is true. Regan admits she was head over heels in love with Ned (she's not told Steph his name) but he bailed when she told him she was married. Steph suggests keeping it quiet from Jacka since it's over with, something Regan is happy to go along with as she fears he'd kill them both! Regan pleads with Steph to lie to Jacka.
The restaurant looks a lot busier than it was the last time we saw it as there are other patrons there beside Elly and Mark. She is telling him about Ned and his ex and both are surprised to see Steph (she was delivering the bill to a table) and she is happy for them to have lunch together.
Gold Coast, Sea World
Xanthe is still peeved her friends seem to be ignoring her as they meet up with Madison/Lucy. Madison heads to go see the dolphin show (to calm her nerves ahead of her audition) while Lucy gives Ben/Xanthe a lift to a coffee shop on the way to the airport (she apologised to Madison for not being able to stay for her audition).
As Madison makes her way to the dolphin area, she is stunned to see her ex Logan there! Commercial break later, he explains that he's doing an internship at Sea World as part of his course and she explains why she is in town to him.
As Steph re- sets the tables, Mark is quick to tell her that lunch with Elly was simply platonic as he feared she'd be mad, but she is fine with it and says he was daft to bail on the food as its divine. As Mark rambles on, Steph finds out who Regan was having the affair with – Ned.
Gary seeks out Toadie to get his advice before he meets Terese (he's still on a high from last night) and his advice is, since she is his boss, to apologise and to forget about it, so things at work aren't weird.
Gary arrives to meet Terese in the lane between Harold's and Rebecchi Law. He begins by apologising for being late, and then before she can get a word in, apologises for what happened yesterday – it was out of line and it won't happen again. Terese thanks him for what he said and hopes he isn't uncomfortable - he won't once their chat is over!
TERESE: So that's it, it was a one- off, it won't happen again, we both know where we stand with each other.
GARY: I won't cross the line again, I promise.
TERESE: We'll be professional at all times.
Despite the words coming out their mouths, their body language is very much saying the opposite and after Terese walks away, seconds later she's back to kiss Gary! Oops, Gary only called out her name to say she'd left her bag lying although both seemed to enjoy the pash very much! Terese quickly apologises and goes to bolt but this time its Gary pulling her back to kiss her!
GARY: You'd better forget that again too! And this…
He leans in again to start pashing her and she is definitely up for it as much as he is, indeed she actually drops her bag to the floor so she can hold him better!
Xanthe admits to Ben she's relived her mates couldn't meet her because she can spend more time with him. She is however thinking about her mum and that she could run into her at any minute. Ben offers to tell her mum that she doesn't know what she is missing out on should he ever meet her… and how much he loves her daughter.
While they are in Queensland, Xanthe wants them to TITTNL™ and reassures Ben that she wants to wait no more, after he questioned why the sudden decision now. However, it looks like those plans might not happen because someone else has ran into them – Angus who declares that its party time!
Steph is back to update Jacka on what she's discovered. She tells him that Regan thought they were having an affair before he was locked up and that she stopped visiting him because she thought he was going to dump her. Steph set her straight and Regan now feels like an idiot but will be back to visit him soon.
JACKA: You're positive that's all that's been going on?
STEPH: Yes, I am sure of it, you've got nothing to worry about.
Jacka then pulls it out of the hat that Regan is doing the dirty on him; he's had someone else check up on things too. “Are you lying to me Scully? Is that what this is?” Jacka demands to know and she replies that she is simply replying to what Regan told her, “she seemed completely genuine.” “I believed her,” Steph adds in to try and get Jacka to believe her but he's not fooled and instead replies back that she has one chance to make it up to him.
JACKA: I want a name Scully. Find out who this guy is and if you know what's good for you, you won't let me down again.
