- Aaron encourages David to support Leo at the backpackers' reopening
- David overexerts himself at the grand opening of The Shed
- Piper moans to Tyler about internet troll IncogNitro and his nasty posts on her vlogs
- Yashvi talks to Mishti about having met a boy
- Yashvi invites Evan to a football match, and he seems keen
- Popular girl Tia invites Kirsha to a sleepover, and Dipi accepts the invitation on her behalf
- Kirsha is annoyed that Dipi didn't ask whether she wanted to go, insisting that she doesn't
- Dipi gets a message from Tia's mum, saying Kirsha never turned up to the sleepover
Dipi is still by the pool, frantically calling Kirsha, but she isn't answering her phone. Toadie and Shane emerge from the house; Dipi explains that when she dropped Kirsha off, she left her at the end of the road because Kirsha was embarrassed about being dropped off by her mum.
SHANE: Dipi, this isn't Bourke – there are strangers around!
DIPI: No, I don't think anyone grabbed her. I would've seen them.
SHANE: Well, something's happened!
Dipi suggests they call the police, but Shane says he'll spend half an hour looking for Kirsha first, while Dipi rings around. Toadie goes to help with the search too.
David and Leo are randomly discussing Jack's potential love life now he's out of the priesthood. David thinks it's none of their business, and Leo's concerned that David is still being a little standoffish with him after their row about getting drugs for Mannix. David claims things are fine, but at that moment Aaron and Mishti turn up, interrupting.
Aaron says hi, and David very awkwardly replies – so Aaron gets the sense he's interrupting and goes straight to the counter.
DAVID: Will you be home tomorrow?
LEO: I've got the footie screening at the backpackers', but Jack will be around if you need to sort stuff out.
DAVID: Nothing to sort out – just wondering.
David goes to pay for dinner, but Leo tells him to stop paying for everything – he doesn't want anything back for all the money he gave David for medical school.
DAVID: It was just an offer. But fine – your shout.
David leaves, and Leo looks concerned – as does Aaron. Meanwhile, in the kitchen, Yashvi tells Mishti about her trip to the football match with the guy she told her about, but doesn't reveal that it's Evan.
MISHTI: Oh, so it's a date!
YASHVI: That's not how I'd label it… Okay, yes, maybe it's a date. Just don't freak out.
MISHTI: I'm not freaking out!
YASHVI: Okay – maybe I'm the one freaking out. You need to tell me the rules!
MISHTI: The rules?
YASHVI: Yeah. Aren't there things to avoid talking about? Like politics, religion, whether pineapple is allowed on a pizza or not…?
MISHTI: Talk about regular stuff. And if you're unsure of anything, just follow his lead. But I'd leave pizza toppings for date number two.
YASHVI: I just know I'm going to say something stupid.
MISHTI: Is he nice?
MISHTI: Then you have nothing to worry about! Unless… does your mum know about it?
YASHVI: … I assume she does. She's always claiming to have ‘the gift'.
YASHVI: What?! You know what she's like – she'll make too big of a deal out of it (…) Please don't say anything to Mum.
At that moment, Dipi calls Mishti on her mobile, to tell her about Kirsha going missing…
Ben, Tyler and Evan are working in the garage. Tyler is telling them about all the abusive messages Piper's been getting online, and says that if she'd only ignored the trolls from day one, he thinks they'd have stopped by now. Ben doesn't entirely agree, and asks Evan what he thinks, but he replies that he doesn't know.
TYLER: The thing is, she can never let anything go. She always has to get the last word in, no matter what. Did you read any of the stuff that got leaked online?
BEN: No. I know what it's like – I've had private stuff go online before. I wouldn't do that to her. She must be so freaked, though. Knowing that someone's got it in for her – that's pretty intense.
TYLER: I need to stop getting so worked up. While Terese is sick, Pipes needs my support.
At that moment, Yashvi arrives to meet Evan – but tells him that they'll have to cancel their date, as Kirsha has gone missing. Yashvi says Evan can go to the footie without her, but he says he'll help her look for Kirsha. Tyler and Ben decide to help too, and they lock up the garage and leave.
Aaron is whingeing to Amy about how awkward David was when he said hello in Harold's before, while Jimmy looks through his telescope. Aaron gets his phone out.
AARON: I'm just checking David's Insta.
AMY: David doesn't have Insta!
AARON: I know. But he might have got it since I checked last.
JIMMY: Hey, Mum, have we got anything to eat?
AARON: If he felt the same way I do about him, he would have stopped to have a chat at Harold's.
AMY: Maybe he had somewhere he needed to go!
Jimmy interrupts again, asking if they can order up some cheeseburgers, since it's a special occasion (Aaron being here!)
AMY: No room service!
JIMMY: Club sandwiches?
Aaron continues to moan on about David.
AARON: I guarantee that he is in his apartment right now, not talking about me. Not the way I am about him.
AMY: Okay – wherever David is, I think it's time you found out how he felt, instead of you just second- guessing all the time!
Jimmy suggests they go down now and see if David's there. Aaron thinks it would be weird, but Jimmy suggests Aaron could invite David to watch the footie match with them tomorrow. Aaron has reservations, but Amy thinks it's worth a try.
The following day, Toadie tells Dipi and Mishti that there's no news from the police on Kirsha's whereabouts, but that they're now combing the area for her. Dipi is tearful as Kirsha has been missing all night, but Mishti reminds her that Yashvi and Shane are out looking again.
Dipi feels guilty for forcing Kirsha to go to the sleepover. Mishti says Kirsha will be home soon to walk Clancy as she never misses that. This prompts Toadie to wonder where the dog is, as he hasn't seen him all night – and wherever Kirsha is, Clancy follows.
Pouncing on this idea, Dipi rushes out to the Doug- Out in the back garden, where sure enough, Kirsha and Clancy are hiding!
Shortly afterwards, Dipi has updated Shane and the police on Kirsha's safe return.
KIRSHA: I'm sorry, Mum.
DIPI: I really should hope so, Kirsha! I can't believe you would do this to us!
Kirsha explains that she got lost on the way home and then had her earphones on in the shed, so didn't hear anyone calling or realise she was missed. She didn't realise Tia's mum had called to set them all off worrying.
DIPI: Of course she would! Everyone was expecting you!
KIRSHA: Well, that wasn't my choice! You know I didn't want to go!
MISHTI: But you let your mum drop you off there anyway?
KIRSHA: I didn't want her and Dad fighting over it.
DIPI: All this just to get out of a sleepover? … Come here.
Kirsha goes and hugs Dipi, saying she's really sorry for causing trouble.
DIPI: I'm just glad you're safe and sound.
Shane runs into Yashvi, Ben and Evan, who have just heard that Kirsha's been found. Shane thanks the boys for helping with the search, and Yashvi asks if she can stay out – they're going to watch a footie match at the backpackers' later, in lieu of the one they missed going to last night. Thinking they're going as a trio, Shane happily hands Ben some money for food for them all.
However, the moment Shane's gone, Evan makes it clear that he and Yashvi want to go alone to watch the footie. Ben takes the hint and hands them the money!
Shane is hugging Kirsha, relieved to see she's okay. Dipi is keen to understand whether something else is upsetting Kirsha, and Mishti asks if the other girls are mean to her – but she replies that they're not, and that that is how she'd like it to stay.
KIRSHA: If you say or do the wrong thing at a sleepover, then you're bullied forever. They never let you forget.
MISHTI: Not all girls are like that. You should give Tia and her friends a chance.
DIPI: And you're amazing, Kirsha. I don't know why you'd think you'd do or say the wrong thing?
KIRSHA: Because they know each other already.
SHANE: Yeah. And they want to get to know you.
KIRSHA: But they're all so cool, Dad.
MISHTI: You're cool. You're my niece – how could you not be cool?
KIRSHA: (…) Everything here is just so big, and busy. It's not like back home. There's hardly any space, and everyone's always in a hurry. I don't feel like I belong.
Kirsha asks what her punishment is. Shane says he's just glad she's safe, but that they will have a think and let her know.
Aaron, Amy and Jimmy are carrying out Jimmy's plan of inviting David to watch the football with them. But when David emerges, he looks sweaty and dishevelled, with his shirt done up wrongly. He tells them he can't come with them as he's busy, and Aaron says he's sorry to have bothered David – having clearly leapt to the conclusion that David is in the midst of TITTNL™ with another guy!
David quickly darts back into the apartment, leaving Aaron mortified. Amy says he should come up to watch the footie with them anyway, but Aaron isn't in the mood after what he thinks he's just seen.
JIMMY: You know what really cheers me up? Room service!
AMY: Oh, you are unbelievable!
JIMMY: What? It does!
Leo whines to Jack about David apparently not having forgiven him for the whole Mannix debacle, saying he was acting weird over dinner last night and seemed to be keen for Leo not to be in the apartment today. Leo's starting to think David would prefer him to move out permanently.
Steph turns up with a linen delivery, and Jack offers his services to help bring it in. Jack grins at Leo as he follows Steph out to her car.
Meanwhile, Evan arrives with Yashvi to watch the footie match – he has his arm around her shoulder. They quickly home in on the free alcohol. Evan's eighteen so he can drink – but despite Evan reminding Yashvi that she isn't old enough, she grabs a cup anyway.
YASHVI: It's cool. I do this all the time. Cheers!
She sips tentatively from the cup…
The room service which Jimmy has ordered (without Amy's permission) arrives, while Aaron continues to moan about David, barely paying attention to the footie match. He's convinced that David had another guy in the apartment with him before.
AMY: You have no idea what the story is, or why he wanted to get rid of us.
AARON: Yeah, I do. Because I've been that guy.
AMY: What guy?
AARON: The one who's trying to get rid of another guy who comes to the door because you're entertaining someone else. I did it to David once before, and this is probably just his revenge (…) I know, it's my fault. I told him to go and play the field. But I didn't think it'd go this far.
AMY: It was always a risky strategy.
AARON: I just waited too long. And of course he's been snapped up, because he's so ridiculously adorable.
AMY: And so are you!
AARON: Don't. Seriously, you're not helping.
Jimmy returns with the room service, to divvy it up between the three of them. Amy tells Aaron not to give up hope yet, but admits when pressed that the situation in David's apartment ‘didn't look good'.
AMY: But even if there is someone else, you still need to put yourself on the line.
AARON: What's the point? Compared to David, I'm just some musclehead.
AMY: That's not true. Your timing's out, maybe.
Aaron just continues to sulk and sigh.
AMY: Okay, fine. Give up. But you'll regret it.
Evan is playing table football with a visibly tipsy Yashvi. Jack comes in with Steph, who thanks him for helping out. They help themselves to the free beers – at which point, Yashvi wins the game against Evan, throws her t- shirt over her head and celebrates rather too loudly, flinging herself onto the couch nearby. Steph asks Evan if he has ID, and then Leo arrives.
LEO: You'd better be eighteen, mate. Why was she drinking?
EVAN: I'm not her dad! I mean, it's your booze, and she helped herself.
YASHVI: He's right, I did. And you're such a nice guy, Leo. I'll make sure I tell my aunt that!
But Leo's not amused, saying he could get into big trouble if minors were found drinking here. He asks Evan to take Yashvi home, but he's not eager to get in bother with Dipi and Shane – so Leo says he'll take Yashvi instead. He escorts her out.
Mishti is lounging on the couch, while Dipi and Shane are discussing Kirsha's behaviour. Dipi thinks she needs counselling, but Shane disagrees. Dipi points out that he isn't a psychologist.
SHANE: Even I know she shouldn't have been pushed into going to that sleepover. And I don't want her getting it into her head that she's got some kind of serious problem.
DIPI: Honestly, Shane – how long are you gonna bury your head in the sand about this?
SHANE: She just needs to get used to Erinsborough, and get over her shyness.
There's a knock at the door – it's Leo, with a still- drunken Yashvi in tow.
YASHVI: Mishti, I love you so much!
DIPI: Yashvi, what's wrong with you?
YASHVI: Don't worry, Mum – I love you too. And Dad, and Kirsha, and Jay, and Clancy.
SHANE: Is she drunk?
LEO: I think she had a few beers.
He swears he wouldn't have knowingly let a minor drink, but that ‘Yashvi and her boyfriend' just started helping themselves.
SHANE: Is he talking about Ben?
YASHVI: Catch up, Dad – he's talking about Evan. The other one. And you'll be pleased to hear it was a total success. Zero talk of pizza toppings.
Mishti looks awkward, as Shane thanks Leo and says they'll take it from here. Leo leaves, and Shane takes Yashvi to put her to bed.
DIPI: My girls are out of control! First Kirsha running off into the night, and now Yashvi drinking underage – I don't understand! How did none of us know she was going out with some boy?!
Mishti shrugs sheepishly.
Leo comes in to find David doing some kind of bizarre regime with an exercise contraption in front of the TV. Mortified to have been caught in the act, David leaps up and clutches the contraption to him defensively, while Leo laughs at him.
LEO: What is this thing?
DAVID: It's a Max Balance! It's meant to work seven parts of your body!
LEO: So this is why you didn't want me around home today? I thought you were still mad at me about the Mannix stuff!
DAVID: Well, I'm still not thrilled about it. But I told you, I'm getting over it.
LEO: Even when you do dumb stuff, I still love you. Where did you get this thing?
DAVID: Late- night TV.
LEO: Seriously?! Why don't you just work out at The Shed?
DAVID: Because everyone there's so much hotter than me! And I don't want Aaron looking until I've at least got a two- pack!
LEO: Dude, Aaron wouldn't notice.
DAVID: His whole body is like – his whole life!
David explains he was ‘all sweaty and pathetic' earlier when Aaron interrupted his workout regime.
DAVID: If he wasn't off me before, he's definitely off me now.
LEO: Look – who cares about a ripped body, when you've got a ripped brain? You're a doctor!
DAVID: That's not enough for guys like Aaron.
LEO: Okay, if you're that worried about it, let me help you work out and get fit.
LEO: Do you want my help or not?
Mishti is by the pool when Yashvi emerges from the house. Mishti has had a text from Leo asking how Yashvi is, and she replies thanking him for bringing her back. Yashvi moans that she feels disgusting and her head is pounding.
MISHTI: Why did you drink? What were you thinking?
YASHVI: I wanted my first date to be memorable.
MISHTI: Err, yeah, well you achieved that!
Mishti reveals that Dipi has gone to the backpackers' to give Evan a piece of her mind!
YASHVI: Please tell me you're joking?
YASHVI: Oh my god.
Yashvi legs it out of the garden.
We see Yashvi riding her bike out of the street.
Dipi is laying into Evan, while Tyler and Ben watch nervously.
DIPI: The fact that you took her out and didn't even come to the house to meet us properly –
BEN: He did meet Shane. When we were looking for Kirsha.
DIPI: Stay out of it, Ben! We were under the impression that Yashvi was coming here with friends – not going out on a date with some guy!
EVAN: It wasn't anything serious – I don't see the big deal.
DIPI: You got her drunk!
TYLER: Look, Evan's not the kind of guy to cause any trouble. Maybe if you both talk this through calmly –
DIPI: Calmly? Calmly? You can't even take any responsibility for what's happened!
Yashvi bursts in, and tells Dipi that her drunkenness was her own fault, not Evan's.
EVAN: Yeah, I told her not to have a drink.
DIPI: If you were having a drink, then you're a bad influence on her. She's just a young, innocent girl who's never been on a date before!
Yashvi all but dies of embarrassment.
YASHVI: Oh my god, Mum!
DIPI: From now on, you stay right away from my daughter!
EVAN: Fine – fine. We're never going out again.
Evan leaves, embarrassed. Yashvi turns to Dipi and delivers the immortal line…
YASHVI: I hate you!
- Dipi is upset that Yashvi said she hated her – she doesn't want to lose her daughters
- Dipi, Kirsha and Mishti lie on the lawn at No 32
- Paige continues to pretend she's fine with Elly seeing Mark
- Terese asks her oncologist if she's saying they're not making headway
