- David telling Jack that he sometimes thinks about men in a way that he shouldn't.
- David being announced as the father of Paige's baby's.
- Paige thanking David but he's already fearing how her family will take the news he's not the daddy.
- Piper after fake ID.
- Toadie reaffirming to Willow she's got a dad/home any time she wants.
Toadie wakes up after dreaming about Willow/Dee living with him, as if they were a real family, at #30.
Piper is about to head off to school after finishing brekkie when Tyler finally makes it back after finishing work - he should have joined her for brekkie but was late back. They make plans instead to have lunch as both seemed determined to make things work despite their clash of schedules which means they are struggling to spend time with each other.
Willow is round to start filling in the paperwork for going to South East Grammar and volunteers to babysit Nell so that Toadie can take Sonya out for dinner.
Paige comes out from Harold's to see if David wants another coffee (he doesn't) and turns down having dinner as its ladies night at the Brick Lane Bar. She heads back inside as Leo joins his brother who unloads on him about what a tight family Brad/Lauren/Paige are, and then admits that he isn't the daddy, he is just pretending to be it. "Why?" Leo asks and David explains that Paige is in a tricky position and he simply wanted to help make things easier for her. Leo than asks if he is doing this to live up to GG's expectations?
DAVID: I don't know. Maybe? The longer it goes on, the worse I feel about lying to everyone.
Robinsons motel, Dee's room
Willow wonders if her mum is getting carried away when she spots a cake for Toadie - Sindi has said how Dee used to make cakes for Toadie, which he loved. "Trust me, I know exactly what I'm doing," Dee replies back and concedes to not visiting him tonight after Willow pleaded with her (she told her mum about the babysitting as Toadie/Sonya were going out).
Piper gets her hands on some fake ID from a fellow pupil (Bec) and just as she's celebrating having it, Elly comes up wanting to know what she is hiding. After refusing to show what is in her pocket, Piper scores herself a lunchtime detention despite pleading with Elly that she was meeting Tyler for lunch.
Toadie has found someone to unload to about the dream he had - Gary and he asks given what happened, is that something you really do get over. "No, in some ways you don't," Toadie admits but then goes on to say that he is happily married to Sonya and loves his family/life with her, Dee is firmly in the past. Gary tries to reassure Toadie that he is handling things very well and Toadie admits, it's his love for Sonya that is getting him through it all.
TOADIE: I need to focus on that and leave the memories where they belong.
Piper is unamused at Elly using her mobile (to call off her night out with Paige) in class when pupils are banned from using them.
Meanwhile out in the corridor, Xanthe runs into Willow who is in to collect her uniform prior to starting at EHS (she will transfer to South East Grammar next term). Willow puts her unwillingness to talk about school down to having a fight with her mum. Xanthe tells her about how she's not living with her mum anymore and doesn't think anyone could top what Brooke did when she visited! Willow thanks her for being nice although quickly heads off after Xanthe says that if she were a few years older she'd have to keep her away from Ben due to the competition between them!
The Waterhole/Robinsons motel, Dee's room
Sonya/Toadie are celebrating with bubbles although their night is almost interrupted by a call from Dee until Toadie turns his phone over, ignoring the call. Dee isn't amused that Toadie isn't answering her call and calls him again.
Toadie/Sonya are discussing going away on a holiday when she calls and this time Sonya him to answer the call. In an agitated state, Dee asks him to come round, and when that fails, she asks instead for him to talk over the run up to the accident. Toadie refuses her request, explaining that he's at dinner with his wife and hangs up. "Thank you," Sonya says and while she is happy, Dee is the total opposite - she is Mrs Angry.
Despite originally not planning on going out, Elly meets up with Paige for their night out. Leo compliments Paige on how hot she looks in her dress, although she bemoans it's likely to be the last time she wears it as she barely got into it. He spots Amy at the bar getting a takeaway, and suggests to the ladies they invite her out. Almost reluctantly, Elly heads over and does her best to convince Amy to join them tonight.
Paige is surprised to get a call from David since he knew she was going out, but Leo tells her about seeing him earlier and suggests that she needs to go see him and hear him out.
Willow/Nell are having fun dancing when Toadie/Sonya arrive home, very pleased to see the 'sisters' bonding with each other. After hearing what they've been up to, Sonya goes to put Nell down but not before we hear:
NELL: Willow's my sister.
Before they leave (Toadie is driving Willow home), he tells her about the calls from Dee and that she sounded upset. Willow thinks she will be alright and is sure there was nothing to worry about.
Xanthe is surprised Piper isn't already out using her fake ID but she explains she needs to finish an assignment first otherwise she'll get it from Elly. Piper however then abandons her schoolwork after Xanthe shows her some social media photos of women all over Tyler at the bar as he works.
Paige arrives to meet David and he thanks her for ditching her plans so she could meet him. She's curious to know why he needs to talk to her and asks if it's the baby or the arrangement. He tries to explain that the baby has brought up issues about his own dad/fatherhood in general, something he takes very seriously. Paige knows the deal they did, and thanks him for the extra time it's bought her, and asks if he wants to back out now as she doesn't want him to feel trapped.
PAIGE: Look, I know that the reason you wanted to do this was so you could be seen as a different type of man but if you're ready to be who you really are, then please don't let me be the one that holds you back.
Aaron is surprised to see David on the other side of the door when he answers it and wishes he'd have called as he has company in his bedroom. He does say to David that if it's important then the guy can wait, but and a very flustered David tells him that it can and heads off.
Robinsons motel, Dee's room
Dee isn't too pleased that Willow didn't invite Toadie into their unit when he dropped her off.
WILLOW: You said you weren't going to mess in their marriage.
DEE: Don't worry about things you don't understand Willow.
WILLOW: I do understand mum, more than you. He's not into you, he loves Sonya.
And at #30, Toadie is getting romantic with his wife but she pulls back to suggest they continue things in the bedroom once she's checked on Nell. Before he heads there, Toadie gets out his phone and makes a call.
Robinsons motel, Dee's room/Number 30
"The sooner you wrap your head round that the better," Willow literally finishes saying to her mum when she almost gloats by showing her who is calling - Toadie.
WILLOW: Just do what you came her to do and leave them alone.
Toadie explains why he is calling, to make sure she is okay and Dee responds that she is fine now, admitting that for a while she was a bit shaky. It would appear from the call that they've agreed to meet up tomorrow.
It's late and David is round to unload on Jack over a beer about the secrets he is struggling to keep. Jack empathises with him, he's been there too, adding in that the longer secrets are kept, the heavier they feel. Jack asks him to think if it's worth the struggle keeping something secret.
DAVID: The thing is, some of the secrets aren't even mine.
JACK: That's honourable of you, it's often harder than if it were your own secret.
DAVID: This person has given me an out though.
JACK: So what's holding you back?
DAVID: If I let their truths out, then there are truths about me that are probably going to follow.
JACK: Would that potentially be a good thing? You know, freeing?
DAVID: The truth is I'm not the father of Paige's baby.
Brick Lane Bar
Amy/Elly are having a whale of a time when Paige finally joins them. After a quick drink, Amy/Paige head to the dance floor and Elly plans on joining them after a trip to the ladies.
"You can't be here," Tyler greets Piper with when he spots her sauntering up to the bar. She shows him the ID she used to get past the bouncer, but he still wants her to leave before Elly spots her, so he can keep his job. And seconds after he's said that, Elly comes back from the toilet and asks Piper what she is doing in the bar. "I thought you were on a detox," she replies with rather than answering the question and after wondering how she got in, Elly spots the fake ID and removes it from Piper before telling her to go home now, they will talk about it in the morning.
