Amy passes Detective Graves a note of a person's name. She'll confirm Amy's whereabouts on the night of the gala. Amy confirms that she last saw Hamish the morning that she left town, about midday. She was asking Hamish when he would make his donation to the wellness centre, and when she pushed him on it, his whole ‘nice guy' routine disappeared. Graves asks if that made her mad. Amy says she had already found another donor so she wasn't desperate.
DET. GRAVES: We've got your prints from when your ute destroyed the Backpackers. Why were they all over his wallet?

Number 22 Back Yard
Piper is reading a book, taking a break from studying. Ben says she'll get special consideration, she can afford to rest. Piper has worked hard all year and doesn't want to throw in the towel now. Ben is surprised she can even focus, a few days ago she was fighting for her life. Xanthe arrives, having brought a ‘personal aromatherapy haven' for Piper. Ben looks admiringly at Xanthe as she explains what she's chosen for Piper to help her study, including oils, music, and a scarf which helps Xanthe relax. Ben smiles.
The Waterhole Exterior
Mishti apologises to Sheila for what happened to Hamish. She's pleased Sheila wasn't home, and tries to gauge Sheila's reaction. Sheila recites her story that she and Gary checked in just before the fireworks started and they stayed in their rooms all night. Mishti says she'd have been in a great position to see the display. Sheila says they did and quickly leaves. Mishti looks suspicious.
Leo joins Mishti, telling her tea is a very good post work out drink. He has some tea that he'd like for her to sample, back at his place. Mishti says she's having lunch with Dipi and Shane. When he asks if he could see her this afternoon, she apologises, her schedule is totally jammed today. Mishti kisses him goodbye.
Elly asks Ben why he isn't studying with Piper. Ben says Xanthe is doing a much better job of supporting Piper than he is. He goes on about how Xanthe knows just what to do to support Piper, and knew just what to do the night of the fireworks to help Kirsha. She's always looking out for other people. Elly wonders if Ben said anything to him the night of the accident, about why she was there. Elly says Yashvi was trying to set Xanthe and Ben up, she's convinced that Xanthe is in love with Ben. Ben says he spent so long trying to push Xanthe away after they broke up, but lately his feelings have changed. He tells Elly how great he thinks Xanthe is and admits he loves her. Elly tells her he should go out and show her.
ELLY: A girl as special as Xanthe deserves romance, right?
Steph tells Jack she's just got off the phone with Amy's mum, Nene. She wanted to warn her that the cops might ask her questions, but it turns out Amy didn't visit her. Gary arrives looking for Amy. Steph tells him that she's being questioned by the police. Gary looks concerned, but is sure it will be fine. After Gary leaves, Jack asks what they'll tell Jimmy. Steph doesn't want to tell him anything yet until they know more.
Leo follows Shane from the front door (when was the last time we saw that?!) into the kitchen. He apologises for interrupting their lunch, but he wanted to bring Mishti some tea. Shane says that they aren't having lunch today. Leo asks how Kirsha is, the pills are keeping her awake at night, which is making her anxiety worse. Leo thinks he must have got his wires crossed about where Mishti is. Shane explains that Dipi is out shopping with Yashvi, so Mishti wouldn't be having lunch with Dipi either. Shane suggests he give Mishti a call.
Gary tells Sheila that Amy's been taken in for questioning. David overhears and races over with Aaron to check everything is okay. Gary assumes they're just questioning Amy because she lives at the house, just like he and Sheila were. David suggests they call Mark to see if he knows anything, but Aaron says he's not allowed on the case. He still thinks they should tell Mark and Tyler. Aaron thinks the investigation could go on for months and they don't need to hear every piece of information. Gary and Sheila look nervous.
Elly is hiding behind a tree, while Xanthe leaves her house, talking to Piper on the phone. She tells Piper to take plenty of breaks, and she's told Tyler to make sure she stops studying every 90 minutes. As she ends the call, Elly runs into her. Elly tells her to look towards the tree behind her, as she does she spots a scroll dangling from the tree. Xanthe opens it.
‘To the princess of Ramsay Street, ruler of Erinsborough, your prince awaits you at the lake. Hurry to him and meet your destiny.'
Xanthe laughs, thinking it's some kids playing a game. Elly says it's addressed to her, as her nickname is princess. She asks Xanthe who she'd consider her prince. Xanthe is excited to realise it's Ben who is waiting for her at the lake. Xanthe says she has to change, Elly says she's fine.
XANTHE: No I'm not, he's expecting a princess. I have to look like one.
Leo tells David he thinks it's odd that Mishti made up some story instead of just telling him he needed space. David thinks he's being needy and overthinking it. Leo asks if he'd think it would be weird if Aaron did the same to him. Leo's tried talking to Mishti but she hasn't responded to his messages. David thinks he's stressing over nothing. He wonders if they should tell Paul that Amy is being questioned by the police. Leo says it's a routine thing because she lives with the Canning, and tells David he is stressing over nothing.
Erinsborough Police Station
Toadie rushes in, having ran straight from the magistrate's court. They tell him they've already had the interview. Toadie tells Amy that Steph called him and wonders why she didn't ask for him herself. Amy says it's all fine, she has an alibi for the night Hamish was killed. Toadie takes Amy aside and asks her to tell him what's going on. He says Steph called Nene and knows Amy wasn't with her. Amy says she didn't lie to the police, she told them who she was really with, but now she should tell Steph.

Xanthe is dressed up, walking down the street in slow motion. Shane stops her and they talk about Kirsha. He set up a sound system, hoping the vibrations would soothe her but it hasn't worked and she's really upset, she's terrified she won't get her hearing back. He was hoping she'd have a few minutes to stop by and help Kirsha calm down. Xanthe says she can swing by, she still has some of the oils she used to calm Piper, perhaps they'll work on Kirsha too. Xanthe goes to send a text first.
Leo is anxiously staring at his phone. He eventually uses the ‘Find Friends' app to find out where Mishti is. She's at Lassiters Hotel.
Aaron and David chat about Amy. Aaron says people go to jail all the time for things they didn't do. David tells Aaron to have some faith. David says that as soon as they find Louise, the police will be able to stop targeting innocent people.
Meanwhile in the corner, Gary and Sheila agonise over what's going on. Sheila says that if she thinks Amy is taking the fall for this, she won't keep quiet. Gary says that won't be necessary. Amy arrives and Gary, Sheila, David and Aaron gather round to ask how the police interview went. Amy says she's in the clear, but she needs to find Steph.
Mishti is standing outside Lassiters, fixing her make- up, when Leo approaches her and asks if she had a nice lunch. Mishti thanks him for his understanding, it was good to spend some time at home. Leo says he dropped by her place and knows that she wasn't having a family lunch. He knows she was at the hotel. He admits he tracked her phone. She says she had a legitimate reason for being there, but she can't tell him right now, though tells him he can trust her.
LEO: You lied! Trust is a two- way street Mishti.
Ben walks up the street in slow motion, carrying his mandolin. Xanthe runs out and tells him that she got his scroll, and is pleased to see he dressed up for her. Ben says he has studying to do. Xanthe wants to go back to the lake. She takes the scroll off him and reads it.
XANTHE: Did you write this for me?
BEN: I know it's bad. I was going for quirky and romantic as it reminds me of you.
XANTHE: It's beautiful. I love it.
BEN: You do?
XANTHE: Of course I do.
She explains that she was on her way when Shane stopped her and needed her to help Kirsha. She thinks she was selfish. He says she's the opposite of selfish. Ben thinks she's always showing how caring she is just by being herself.
BEN: I thought you took one look at my invitation and thought I was the same immature kid you broke up with.
XANTHE: No, not at all. I never should have broken up with you. I was the immature one. I felt so bad for so long and I just thought that I didn't have the right asking you to take me back. I love that you did all this, just knowing that you're into me is all I need.
BEN: I am so into you.
Ben passionately kisses Xanthe.
Steph hugs Amy, saying she was worried, especially after her mum told her she wasn't with her that night. Amy says she was clarifying details with the donor. Steph promises she won't judge Amy whatever it is. Amy assures Steph she hasn't gone back to cleaning.
