- Terese telling her family she has cancer.
- Paul reassuring Terese he isn't going anywhere as she undergoes treatment.
- Terse accepting Paige's offer help since her PA isn't much good.
- Piper's account being hacked.
- Yashvi getting drunk.
- Dipi warning Evan to stay away from Yashvi.
- Yashvi unimpressed at her mum and announcing that she hates her!
It's all peaceful and like at #32 that is until Yashvi and Dipi arrive home arguing. Dipi is unimpressed at her daughter's behaviour and likewise Yashvi is unimpressed at how her mum handled the alcohol situation. Yashvi tries to drag her aunt into the argument (since she told her how to behave with Evan) until Kirsha tells them to stop fighting. Willow decides it's probably best she takes Kirsha to her room.
Shane dishes out Yashvi punishment – she's grounded, to which she can't but help giving lip back to her dad, that being grounded suits her because she can't show her face around anyway!
Val is round to get Terese to sign some paperwork and to ask when she will be in as he's being asked too many questions for her. “Tell them to email me,” she replies but he's still not happy and eventually Piper interrupts to tell him she's busy with family stuff. Just at that, Gary comes in to take her to the hospital, but without saying it exactly.
Val leaves in a huff, followed by Terese and Gary. Moments later, Piper's phone starts ringing but she's avoiding answering it. Turns out that her number has gotten out and apparently callers have been told she's “up for anything,” so isn't answering any unknown numbers until she gets a new SIM card.
Mishti explains to her sister the reason behind the advice to Yashvi but didn't know that there would be alcohol involved nor the age of the lad involved. “There are just some things kids don't want to talk to their parents about,” Mishti tries to tell her. Toadie backs Mishti up too by saying he'd be happy if his kids had someone other than him that they could talk to.
DIPI: Until this involves one of your kids Toad, maybe it's just better if you stayed out of it.
“Don't take this out on him, I'm the one you're angry with,” Mishti tells her sister and adds that she needs to get over it, otherwise the kids won't come to her again.
Terese gets some good news from her oncologist - the cancer hasn't spread since chemo has begun although does seems disappointed to hear that the tumour hasn't shrunk yet. Gary tries to remind Terese they are just at the start of the treatment. Terese mentions that the side- effects are knocking her about but the only advice the oncologist has is time off, as rest is the best course while her body adjusts to the treatment. She doesn't think that is going to happen but Gary interjects to tell her she will be taking time off.
Shane hands Yashvi some painkillers and although grateful that she talked to Mishti, wishes that it had been him. She admits that it's all new to her, liking a guy, although given what happened with her mum, fears Evan is never going to ask her out again. Yashvi doesn't get why her mum did what she did but apologises when he mentions that she scared them and asks that she tries not to blame Dipi for what happened with Evan.
Elly drops in to see Piper in her official school role but gives everyone (Xanthe and Paige are there too) a social update first about Karl and Susan – they are enjoying Thailand and Libby has flown over to spend some time with them too.
Getting to why she is round, she breaks it to Piper that the abuse is getting worse, and shows her one which also comments on her mum being sick too. Piper wonders how this person knew about her mum being ill as there were no mentions of it online, its only friends and neighbours that know she is sick.
ELLY: What are you saying?
PIPER: I'm saying that whoever posted this, it's someone that we know.
Commercial break later and Mark is round in his official capacity as a policeman. Unfortunately finding out who is responsible won't be easy, especially since the comment Elly brought to Piper's attention has been deleted, although he's passed on what they've got already to the Cyber Crimes Unit for investigating. Xanthe asks what they can do and Piper goes to make a list of who knows about Terese's illness and pleads with Mark not to mention anything about IncogNitro to Tyler (he won't) nor Terese's work.
Mark also advises Piper to shut down all her accounts and Paige asks how that is fair given Piper is the victim. Elly explains that it will help take the heat out of the situation, thus leaving them less exposed. “I think it sucks,” is Paige's take on things!
Gary wants to know if Terese is going to take the time off that she needs or not. She hasn't decided yet, so he spells it out – her job or her life. He also adds that if she is worried about the money, he will take on as many jobs as needed to support her financially. “It's not just about the money,” she tries to explain, “it's not just a job, it's a part of who I am.”
GARY: You're not going to be anything if you're not here, are you?
Terese isn't ready to make a decision, but he wants it made now so that they have a life together, given the most important part of that is her. She does promise to think about it though.
Dipi apologises to Toadie for how she behaved earlier and then admits the real reason behind it – she feels that she's dropped the ball (by working going from part time worker to running her own café) and consequently is missing things and letting the girls down.
TOADIE: No, don't say that.
DIPI: Two spectacular parenting fails in 24 hours? That's on me.
Toad reassures her that “you can't do everything for them and they won't let you,” before adding that giving them a safety net of good people they can trust, which is what she has done.
DIPI: Yashvi has already told me she hates me, I don't want to lose them.
TOADIE: No, come on. Come on, you're not going to. You are a great mother and they are lucky to have you and they know that! Now, stop giving yourself such a hard time please… that's their job!
Paige tries to subtly quiz Elly about how things are going with Mark (she seemed very jealous when Elly rubbed Mark's arm as a thank you when he was round earlier) and Elly replies she's not seen too much of him since Susan has been away but are going for a workout at The Shed later. Elly is after reassurance that Paige is still fine with them dating, which she is, even if the body language says the opposite!
Meanwhile in the kitchen, Xanthe and Piper are trying to figure out who is responsible. Xanthe thinks it could be Chas but Piper discounts him as he doesn't know about Terese. It dawns on them that it might have got outwith the RSRs if Yashvi had told anyone at school although Xanthe still thinks that from the comments, it's a guy who is behind it.
PIPER: Everyone could have told someone else, like at the hospital, Lassiters… anyone on Ramsay Street. Oh, this is so messed up, it could literally be anyone we know.
In the backyard, Kirsha is curious to know why her mum is lying on the grass looking at the sky. Dipi explains its cloud gazing, something her mum taught her to do, to lose herself in the clouds when stuff was getting to her. Kirsha is curious to know if it works and is invited to lie on the grass next to her mum to try it out. “This is nice,” she declares and reaches out to hold her mum's hand.
Xanthe really isn't getting why Piper doesn't want to delete her accounts, but to her it will mean to her that ‘they've' won and so she will therefore feel like a victim. Instead, Piper plans on filming a message, to post on YouTube, so ‘they' get the message, and reluctantly Xanthe films her.
Piper begins with the usual hellos but then goes onto say that she is closing things down temporarily but will be back. She leaves a special message for IncogNitro – that he's the one that needs help
PIPER: But don't worry, it's because coming and we'll see who's laughing when I find out who you are because then everyone in your life will find out too.
Elly gives Wayne the bad news he isn't getting his stress leave as they are very understaffed. She breaks their conversation to ask Mark how things are going with the Cyber Unit but it's not, as its low priority however he will keep checking in with them.
Resuming their conversation, Wayne comments that what's happened to Piper is karma after what she wrote about him. Elly is surprised at him reading Piper's stuff as it was an invasion of privacy.
WAYNE: Well that's unfortunate. Doesn't change the fact that she's a nasty piece of work though, doesn't it?!
Terese has found an ally in Paul, unlike Gary, and comments that “I just feel like I don't have any control of my life at the moment,” adding that at work she still feels strong. She is also quick to make sure he isn't getting the wrong impression of Gary, telling Paul that he has been amazing.
TERESE: It's just that he wants to look after me, that's why he wants me to take the time off.
PAUL: Well you shouldn't.
It seems that Terese may be leaning towards taking the time off, especially as she points out, that the side effects are going to get worse. He agrees with her but thinks it's better than the alternative.
PAUL: Oh come on, you can't stop. We're not made that way. People like us, when we do that, the cancer takes hold but you stay focused, you keep getting results, you can beat it all.
TERESE: Yes, but what if I can't do it?
PAUL: You know you can, you just, you have to work smarter.
And first on the smarter agenda is getting rid of Val, which she is reluctant to do as that means breaking someone in. “Delegate,” is Paul's solution and for her to call on people that she knows and trusts.
TERESE: Okay, I might.
PAUL: No, you will!
He wants her to promise that she will call on him whenever she needs him. “I will,” she replies.
Kirsha agrees with her mum, cloud gazing does work although Mishti pipes up to say it doesn't for her. “You should try again,” Kirsha suggests, so Mishti heads over and gets down on the grass beside them.
Dipi confesses that it sometimes doesn't work – as some days there aren't any clouds, so instead you find someone else to talk to like her or Mishti. Mishti looks happy at what her sister has just said and they let Kirsha in on the code that they had – for example if Mishti was out and needed to leave urgently, she would call her sister and ask, “how's nana.” “How does that help?” a confused Kirsha asks and Mishti explains that it was the reason behind the call that was the factor – she just needed something to get her out of wherever she was. Dipi suggests that Kirsha's code could be her asking how Clancy is. “This could work for Yashvi too,” Kirsha pipes up since she is dating and sarcastically Dipi replies that she will pass that on!!
DIPI: That's if she ever speaks to me again!
Xanthe asks Piper if it's good having a “social media detox?” and Piper admits that it feels weird.
PIPER: I feel like a phantom version of myself or something.
XANTHE: Sure, because if you didn't post about it, it didn't happen, right?
Piper then gets a text from a random number with the message simply saying, ‘Hands up!!!'
Paige is trying to use Piper's lappy to contact Lauren but it apparently keeps freezing. Terese comes downstairs to make a cuppa as she couldn't sleep. Paige thinks an unsettled Gabe won't be good for her, so goes to get the sling to take him out for a walk. “No, you don't have to do that,” Terese reassures her with.
Before Paige can even get the sling on, there is an explosion of the front door being burst open and 4 armed policemen (dress in full riot gear) rushing into the house and ordering them onto the floor!!! Above the noise of a very distressed Gabe, one of the officers yells to ask if there is anyone else in the house and Terese screams back that there is nobody else here.
- Paige and Terese lying on the floor.
- Piper trying to figure out the text message.
- Mark worried about a call he receives.
- Paul worried.
- Piper saying she feels violated and isn't sure what is going to happen next.
- Tyler receiving a message.
