- The Robinsons and Tanakas discovering they're related to one another
- Amy and Leo's heartbreak over their forbidden love
- Terese and Paige arguing about Piper and Tyler potentially moving into #32
- Brooke Butler returning to Ramsay Street to make amends
- The Cannings inviting Brooke to stay with them much to Terese's dismay
Gary explains to Terese that inviting Brooke to move in was a spur of the moment decision. Brooke's confused as to why Terese is so upset about the news until Terese links arms with Gary and says they're an item. Momentarily thrown, Brooke wonders why the news didn't come up earlier (which irks Terese), but Gary says they were mainly focused on Xanthe. Painting on a smile, Brooke says she's happy for them before thrusting the tray of biscuits she's holding into Gary's chest and walking out.
Amy encourages Paul to get in contact with the Tanakas even though he's unsure of the reception he'll receive. Paul asks his daughter how the whole Leo situation is going and Amy says time apart has been good. David arrives with Karl to get some lunch and Amy nudges Paul into inviting David to dinner (Amy and Jimmy will tag along for support). Paul tentatively approaches David to extend the invite and is stoked when David accepts. Karl notes to David that he's just made Paul's day.
Elly bumps into Leo upon his return from Sydney and finds out he spent his time partying with mates to try and get Amy out of his system. Amy and Paul emerge from Harold's and everyone stares awkwardly at one another until Amy takes the bull by the horns and starts up a conversation with Leo. She invites him to the dinner but Leo just says he's got other things to do.
Paige, Piper and Jack are talking about the ‘Terese won't let Piper move in' drama. Jack surprises the girls when he says he's on their side – he'd feel a lot better if Paige had someone living with her. Piper looks buoyed by this and races off to tell Tyler the good news.
Xanthe's worried that her mum's going to leave again now that she's lost the fundraising job but Brooke says she's staying put. Brooke apologises for what she put Xanthe through but says it looks as though Xanthe's bounced back well.
BROOKE: I'm going to keep making it up to you, Xanth. To everyone for that matter.
XANTHE: Well you've made a lot of promises before…
BROOKE: That's why I'm not making any this time. I'm going to show my commitment through my actions.
Brooke explains to Xanthe and Sheila that she's made a vision board that will help her with making amends with everyone she's upset. The ladies muse on this and come up with a plan to invite all the wronged neighbours over for ‘surprise' afternoon tea where Brooke will pop out and start her apology tour, “sort of like an intervention in reverse!” Xanthe says there's no time like the present – they'll do it this afternoon.
Elly asks Amy what Xanthe's text about afternoon tea at #26 is in aid of but Amy's also in the dark. Amy can't help but ask how Leo's doing and is disappointed to learn that he's started the process of moving on. She pretends all is well to Elly, however, who in turn says that it's good to see Amy has moved on too (well she's moved on from crying to almost crying so there's that).
Piper is extolling the benefits of moving out of the Backpackers and into #32 to Tyler but he isn't as thrilled as his girlfriend. Tyler says that he told Leo he'd keep helping out, but his main concern is upsetting the applecart with Brad and Terese. “If we do this before your parents accept us it'll be like cheating.” Piper's disappointed but Tyler says he's cool with it if Piper wants to stay with Paige by herself.
The afternoon apology tea guests include Karl, Ben, Elly, Paul, Amy and a very bored- looking Jimmy. Elly jokingly asks Xanthe and Ben if they're announcing their engagement, much to the teens' amusement. Once everyone's settled, Sheila brings in their guest of dishonour Brooke and the eye roll from Paul sums it up well. Brooke tells everyone she's deeply sorry and wants to pay everyone back.
BEN: You didn't cost me any money. You just broke up me and Xanthe.
BROOKE: Well I was thinking about that, Ben. And I thought that the monetary value of the pain and suffering I caused you was probably $124,000.
XANTHE: Sounds about right.
BROOKE: Which obviously I can't afford so I'm going to give you the symbolic vale of $124. It's all I could scrape together. But from now on I'm going to give you and Xanthe my full blessing.
Brooke tells Elly she was the one who got her fired from the tutoring gig and promises to pay her back $350 of lost tutoring hours. She then says she'll pay back Amy et al as well but Amy replies that as long as Brooke is “square with Xanthe, it's OK with me.” Meanwhile, Karl's about to blow a gasket that everyone's eating up Brooke's apologies and reminds them that his anniversary was ruined because of Brooke.
BROOKE: I can understand it must have been hard to tell your wife that you'd been so gullible.
KARL: Gullible?! You lied through your teeth to make that sale.
BROOKE: I know and I'm sorry. I know how hard it is for you to part with that much money.
KARL: I'm sorry, because learning to live within your means is something to be congratulated not condemned. You know maybe if you learnt how to do that you wouldn't be in such a mess.
David strolls in, happy to see his brother back in town.
DAVID: The ugly twin has returned!
They hug and David says he's disappointed that Leo won't be joining them for dinner, but Leo says he can't go along with things knowing what Paul's really like as a person. David knows his brother's reluctance is due to Amy's presence as well, but Leo says he heard from Elly that Amy's moved on already. David rightfully says that's probably for the best, but Leo tells him to leave him out of this whole “happy families” thing.
Piper drops by to tell Paige and Jack that her and Tyler can't move in. Jack says that Piper could still move in by herself but Piper says that would just undermine all the progress her and Tyler have made as a couple. Paige understands Piper's reasoning but adds that it doesn't mean she has to like it.
Jack tracks down Terese and tries to change her mind about her stance on Piper and Tyler moving into #32. But Terese explains to Jack that when he becomes a dad he'll soon realise that tough decisions are hard to make. Jack thinks Piper and Tyler have proven they're in it for the long- haul but Terese shrugs and says that it doesn't mean her and Brad have to like it.
JACK: With all due respect maybe it's time to reassess your position because the way things are no one wins out. Not you, not Brad or Piper and especially not Paige.
The afternoon tea guests have all departed and Brooke's pretty bummed out by Karl's reaction. Sheila commiserates with her but says it's lucky Gary wasn't there because he and Karl have butted heads before on the issue. Brooke cheers up somewhat when Sheila tells her that Gary tried to pay all the money back on her behalf, even getting himself intro strife in the process. Gary returns home and asks how everything went.
BROOKE: Remember Dazza and Cheryl's engagement party?
GARY: Yeah at the dogs.
BROOKE: The bar tab ran out in the first half hour and then everyone started spewing because of the chicken chartreuse and then Cheryl's nanna did her hip doing the limbo…
GARY: That bad?
Gary says that it may take more time and effort on Brooke's behalf but the bright side is that he's already forgiven her if no one else has. Brooke says she appreciates it and that it's good to know there's still some nice guys out there. Gary replies that she'll find a good one when she gets her life together.
Amy and Jimmy make fun of Paul nervously tapping a coaster on the table by joining in with the beat to make their own Robinson family band. Aww, don't it make you feel good. Jimmy reassures Paul that everything will be cool and then wonders if he should call David ‘Uncle David' now but Amy says David's fine (wise choice lest we end up with another super rad cool G- Dad situation). Speaking of, David arrives and Paul leaps up to do a weird handshake/shoulder pat/aborted hug greeting with his newfound son. David sits down and Amy encourages Jimmy to tell his lame Easter joke (“What do you get when you pour hot water down a rabbit hole? Hot cross bunnies!”), which they all have a laugh about easing the awkwardness somewhat.
Elly's helping Paige with some yoga poses in the backyard when Terese swings by with some food to share for dinner. Terese says she's not there to argue with Paige about Piper; she's just giving the Cannings and Brooke some space to catch up. She also adds that she knows what it's like to live alone and she wants to try and support Paige however she can.
Brooke, Gary and Sheila all praise Xanthe on the great progress she's making at school and towards her future nursing career. Xanthe says a lot of it has to do with Mr Kelly who told her “If you want something bad enough you'll find a way to make it happen.” Sheila asks Gary if Terese is joining them for dinner but he says she's got something else on. While Gary and Xanthe head out to get food, Brooke asks how things are between Gary and Terese. Sheila says they've had their rough patches but they're pretty solid now. Brooke ‘smiles' and says she's happy they're happy. When Brooke's alone she gets a text from someone not listed in her contacts that says, ‘STOP CALLING ME'.
Everyone's still having a good time at lunch (minus Jimmy who is in the loo) when Leo walks in and rains on everyone's parade by snarking on the happy families routine once more. Paul offers to get Leo a drink but Leo growls and says that Paul hasn't “given me jack in thirty years” so one drink won't make up for it. David tells his brother it's probably best if he just left before Jimmy sees him so angry. Amy looks rattled by the whole ordeal.
Elly thanks Terese for dinner before she heads off to see Leo. Terese invites Paige around to her place for Easter – she's going to have a seafood barbecue with Gary and the girls. She's even thinking about inviting Tyler, but Paige warns her that unless it means she's accepting Piper and Tyler as a couple then she'd advise against it or it'll just get Piper's hopes up. Paige then wonders if Brooke's getting invited too and Terese grimaces and says she supposes she'll have to.
PAIGE: You know you've got nothing to worry about there.
TERESE: Well I didn't think so but Gary didn't even tell her that we were together.
PAIGE: I wouldn't put much thought into it. From what I've heard about Brooke, Gary probably couldn't get a word in.
TERESE: He's promised to keep his distance but it's pretty hard when you're sharing a bathroom.
PAIGE: He's only got eyes for you. But I wouldn't trust her as far as I could throw her.
Amy drops by to tell Leo off for making a scene at dinner. She then gets worked up about his trip to Sydney and hooking up with other girls, but Leo says that didn't happen. “All I could think about was you.” Amy sighs and says not to say things like that but Leo says it's true. There's a moment where he leans in to caress her face but Amy quickly moves away and runs out the door, saying she shouldn't have come over.
