- Jayden tells Rafael that Amy runs a tight site.
- Sue Parker tells Rafael that Paul started the fire that killed Gus.
- Rafael is frustrated that the police won't do anything about Paul.
- Karl tells Izzy that he doesn't want another baby with her.
- At Susan's birthday party, Clive tells Karl that his sample has been stolen.
- Karl confronts Izzy but she says it's already too late - she's attempted to impregnate herself with it. Susan is aghast.
Everyone is shocked. Susan picks up her birthday cake and pushes it into Izzy's face.
Unfortunately, this is just a day dream. Susan actually just stands there aghast.
IZZY: Honestly, I think we just need some time to process this.
SHEILA: Hang on, so you're potentially knocked up with his...
IZZY: I know that I acted a little impulsively...
KARL: A little?!
IZZY: I wasn't going to tell you like this.
KARL: Cos there's, like, a good way to break this news?
Izzy insists that she just wants a sibling for Holly and Susan is the only obstacle! Izzy insists that Karl wants another child deep down. Susan shouts at her to get out, but just then, Holly comes in. She looks confused. Izzy drags her off, knocking some handbags to the floor in the process.
Amy and Mishti pick up the handbags.
Rafael is lurking around and Jayden spots him. Rafael continues to lurk.
Elly expresses some limited sympathy for Izzy - she once considered going off the Pill to have a baby to trap a man(!) But she didn't do it. They continue to pick up the handbags. Mishti heads off the work.
David is nervous about his date with Rafael and Leo tells him to calm down. Rafael finally arrives and David explains that Leo is sticking around for a while. Paul comes out and Rafael has a number of flashbacks concerning him.
Susan is really angry with Karl and wants to know if there was any truth in what Izzy said. Susan is worried that Izzy is pregnant, but Karl doesn't think that's very likely in the circumstances.
KARL: If she is pregnant, it'd be my child.
SUSAN: That doesn't mean that you have to roll over and give her everything she wants! We need to go and see her and tell her what we think.
KARL: Yes, absolutely. We'll go tomorrow.
SUSAN: No, Karl. We need to go now! Every time she does something appalling, you won't confront her! This time has to be different.
Karl isn't keen, but Susan is insistent. He agrees.
Rafael is brooding on the balcony of the penthouse when he gets a text form Sue Parker - "We're all good for tomorrow"
David comes out and asks if he's OK. Paul puts his head around and says he and Leo are heading down to the terrace for a drink. David is pleased and apologises to Rafael that his family have crashed their date. They talk for a while and David invites him to stay over. Rafael pauses.
DAVID: You haven't done this much, have you? That makes two of us. I only came out last year. So, I know what it's like to feel overwhelmed. So, if you want to call it a night...
Rafael: No. No, I don't.
DAVID: No? What do you want?
Izzy's hotel room
Holly tells Izzy that she is delusional about Karl wanting a baby with her.
Just then, Susan and Karl arrive.
SUSAN: Isabelle. We're not going to accept this.
KARL: No, you've gone too far.
IZZY: Well, I can tell that you're upset, but I'm sure that we can work this out.
SUSAN: Oh, we're beyond making anything work.
KARL: I can't change what you've done, but I'm not going to fall in line with your plans.
SUSAN: And we'll be contacting the police.
KARL: Yeah, and we'll be talking to Toadie as well. We're looking at all options.
IZZY: Well, that is your prerogative and that is worrying to hear. Lawsuits are so expensive.
KARL: It's not about the money! It's doing what's fair and right.
IZZY: Well, if I'm being dragged through the courts, then I'll have to put a hold on my donation to the hospital...
KARL: If that's the way it has to be.
IZZY: Do we...do we have to be at war, Karl?
She puts her arm around Holly's shoulders.
IZZY: You know, we were wanting to buy a house here, but if you want us to go back to London, then that means the baby, too...
SUSAN: How dare you hold that over him!
IZZY: Well, I don't want to. I want us to be a family!
Karl and Susan are speechless.
IZZY: Maybe we should just sleep on it.
KARL: Yeah, I suppose so.
KARL:(to Susan) Darling, emotions are running high here. This is not a good time to make big decisions.
Susan walks out in disgust and Karl follows. When they've gone, Izzy tells Holly that Karl definitely wants to get onboard! Holly rolls her eyes and sits down heavily on the bed.
Penthouse (David's room)
David and Rafael are getting down to business. David peels off Rafael's shirt and leads him to the bed.
DAVID: You don't have to be nervous.
They kiss, but Rafael stops him removing his vest.
Rafael: No, you don't get it.
DAVID: Then tell me.
In some anguish, Rafael puts David hand on his back under his vest. David feels his scars and realises what Rafael is afraid of.
DAVID: Show me. Please, show me.
Rafael slowly removes his vest and David looks at his back.
Rafael: I was in a fire.
DAVID: When you were young?
David kisses him and they fall down on the bed.
Later, David and Rafael are curled up in bed together. Rafael is dreaming about the fire and we see Paul in his dreams. He finally wakes in terror, gasping.
DAVID: What is it?
Rafael: It's, uh...um...it's just a cramp. I'm sorry.
DAVID: OK. You alright?
Rafael: It's OK. You go back to sleep. I'm fine.
No.28, the following morning
Elly is drinking a glass of water and looking rather unwell. Karl has been sleeping on the sofa(!)
Susan comes out and says she's going off to school, even though it's the weekend. She completely blanks Karl.
When she's gone, Elly tells Karl that Susan has every right to be upset.
KARL: What if we can't move past this?
ELLY: I'm assuming you actually want that?
KARL: Oh, come on. How can you ask me that?!
ELLY: You considered Izzy's proposition in the first place. Do you have any idea how much pain that put Susan through?
KARL: Oh, yeah, I know.
ELLY: And now, she's capitalised on the entire thing.
KARL: Elly, I'm between a rock and hard place here. I can't please Susan without alienating Izzy. If I do, I risk losing a child, maybe two. I can't win!
ELLY: You actually sound like you want Izzy to be pregnant!
KARL: No, no, no. I'm just saying, if she is, I can't turn my back on her.
ELLY: Karl, you just have to look after Susan. If you can't do that, there is a chance that you will lose her.
She walks off.
David and Rafael are having a coffee. David hopes that Rafael enjoyed last night and he says that everything was nice. David asks him if he had a nightmare and Rafael admits that he keeps having the same dream about the fire over and over again. David is very understanding.
Just then, Rafael gets a text from Sue Parker: "Haven't heard anything yet. Stay in touch"
At the other side of the cafe, Aaron and Amy come in. Aaron sees Rafael and David and sizes the situation up.
AARON: Is it just me, or is that what I think it is?
AARON: The morning after brekkie?
Amy looks horrified.
AMY:(awkwardly) Leo only just told me this morning.
AARON: Told you what? What?!
AMY: Rafael stayed last night, after he had dinner with the family.
Aaron isn't happy and says there's something 'off' about Rafael, but Amy thinks Aaron is just having trouble moving on.
AMY: This is his life. I'm sorry, but you're just going to have to accept that.
Paul tells Leo that he thinks things went well with Rafael last night. Leo thinks Rafael is a bit of a strange one and that Aaron is more suited to David. Paul says he quite likes the idea that David is the lead in a relationship for once.
Jayden rushes in, late to meet Amy. He goes to buy a takeaway coffee and says he'll meet Amy outside. When she's gone, he goes over to speak to Rafael. He's surprised to hear that Rafael is working today and tells him that the site isn't safe. Jayden says he won't be there anyway, he'll be at the yard.
Aaron comes out of the toilet and sees them talking.
Jayden tells Rafael that he doesn't want to be involved in Rafael and his mum's dodgy schemes, like getting him to screw up the site inspection results.
Rafael:(shocked) So it was nothing to do with Paul?!
Jayden confirms that it was all him - Paul and Amy had nothing to do with it. Rafael rushes off, saying there's a mistake he has to fix. Aaron looks suspicious.
Aaron tells Elly that he's worried about David and Rafael. It's not just jealousy - something feels 'off' about Rafael.
Elly reaches into her bag and pulls out a pregnancy test - the contents of the bags must have got mixed up when they were knocked over at the pub. She pulls out the test and finds it is positive.
We cut to Izzy looking into a mirror, smugly, and then cut back to No.28.
AARON: Hold on, so you mean, someone at the party...
ELLY: ...is pregnant. It can't be Izzy's can it?
We cut back to Izzy, still looking into the mirror.
Rafael rushes on to the building site and finds Leo, trapped beneath some concrete.
VOICEOVER: Is Izzy pregnant with Karl's baby? The results are in, tomorrow on Neighbours
