Dipi goes to confront Marisa but instead makes a tearful speech, accepting the award on Yashvi's behalf. Toadie looks concerned and Shane asks Dipi what's going on.
Leo is mopping the foyer when David appears. David is disappointed Leo missed the engagement party but forgives him. He shows Leo some pictures of Jimmy at his new school when a message from Aaron comes through.
LEO: Ooh, tickets to the gun show, eh?!
DAVID: He has to take these pictures to promote the Shed!
David heads inside as Elly appears and asks if this is Leo's punishment for hooking up with the help. Leo complains about his menial tasks but Elly is sure Terese has made her point by now. She tells Leo he's head of business affairs for a reason and should show Terese what she's missing out on.
It's dark outside and now it's Shane's turn for mopping. Dipi has filled him in on Marisa's racism and Shane wonders why she didn't confront Marisa and her mum when they were here. Dipi says the reason Yashvi didn't tell her what was going on was because she thought she'd overreact again.
DIPI: Seeing Yashvi upset, it broke my heart. But do you know what's worse? Is knowing that she couldn't come to me because she was scared of what I'd do.
SHANE: Well, she should have come to me then.
DIPI: We've talked about this. No matter how much you love me and her, it's not the same when you haven't been through it.
Shane asks what they do now.
Shane and Dipi arrive home and hand Yashvi the award. They try to talk to her about making an official complaint about Marisa but she tells them to let her sleep on it. She heads off to bed, leaving the award on the table.
We briefly see Cassius trimming Sheila's bushes in between some other establishing shots.
Terese asks Leo to attend to an overflow on the pool deck but he thinks he can do something better. He's been brainstorming ideas for the Queen's birthday weekend and they need to book the Rebecchis in for Face of Lassiters photos. He suggests a Christmas in July theme. Terese tells him it's already organised and this isn't his job any more.
LEO: But it's what I'm good at. Mopping floors and turning down beds... it's not my strong suit.
TERESE: Oh, I thought you would have had lots of practise with the turn down service! But if you're looking for another assignment...?
TERESE: Great. Then go down to the car park; we're looking for another valet. It's important you learn what cars are supposed to be used for!
Dipi tells Shane about how she was denied a part in a school play because she's Indian. She thought things were better now. Yashvi overhears and says she's never heard that story before. Dipi tells her it affected her for a long time but she got through it. Yashvi realises Marisa needs to answer for what she's done.
Number 26 back yard
David is looking for Xanthe but finds Cassius, who is wearing only his shorts (as usual) bent over a mower in the back yard.
CASSIUS: Hey, I'm Cassius.
DAVID: Seriously... like the calculator?! Oh wait... no, that's... sorry, what a nerd!
Cassius stands up, and with the camera angle looks like a giant compared to David who is clearly flustered and rambles on about back injuries from gardening. He explains that he's a doctor.
CASSIUS: So you must be David? Sheila's pretty much filled me in on everybody within a 10k radius. You're a gay power couple, right?
Cassius says he does feel it in his back after a full day of gardening. He rubs his shoulder and David's voice goes all squeaky. He goes to leave the papers inside for Xanthe but takes another peek at Cassius as he leaves.
Marisa, her mother Lesley, and Coach Romy have arrived. Romy tells Marisa that the messages are racial vilification and it's unacceptable. Yashvi says it was verbal is well. Marisa refuses to apologise and so Romy kicks her off the team.
David pulls up and is amused when Leo offers to park his car for him. Elly appears again (I'm not entirely sure why she's there) and shows them the comments on Aaron's new promo pic. She thinks it's awful he's being objectified for simply doing his job. David suddenly has to leave, and Leo assumes he's going to see Aaron.
Yashvi, Piper and Dipi sit down with drinks outside Harold's and discuss what happened with Marisa. In the background we can see Toadie's old office has turned into a clothes shop called Haus of Elisabeth. Yashvi says it's not just Marisa who needs to understand it was wrong but everyone. Piper agrees to work on a vlog about it with her but warns her she may see comments from trolls.
Number 26 back yard
It's actually Cassius that David has gone to see. He apologises for the inappropriate way he behaved earlier and hopes he didn't feel objectified. Cassius assures him he wasn't bothered. He doesn't have a problem with people looking when he takes his shirt off and he gets a kick out of it when people feel guilty! And if it gets him a bit of extra business, all the better.
Leo tells Shane he dealt with racism in high school as well. He asks after Mishti; he wants to make sure she's OK. Terese appears and tells Leo he only has three minutes left on his break! She asks Shane if the family are ready for the photoshoot.
SHANE: Yeah, yeah, yeah. The Christmas in July concept is a cracker!
LEO: That was my idea!
TERESE: Yeah, and it was a very good idea; that's why we went with it!
Leo has a go at Terese because his talents are being wasted and she's treating him as if he doesn't exist.
TERESE: That's not what's happening here. Look, despite recent events, I actually think you're brilliant, Leo. But you're running clubs in your twenties... you have an innate understanding of the hospitality industry... you appeal to people. So I am pushing you to learn the business inside and out because I believe in you. Now back to work... two minutes!
Aaron is amused that David went and apologised to Cassius and assures him he doesn't mind that he had a look.
Marisa comes in to use the toilet but Shane tells her the bathrooms are for customers only. Marisa says she works at the hotel but Shane says she's not at work now. Marisa tells him there are a lot of people who think like she does, and Yashvi should join a team with people like her.
Piper and Yashvi are filming the vlog. Yashvi says she wants people like her little sister to understand they don't have to deal with people being prejudiced.
PIPER: So what gave you the strength to stand up to one of your team mates?
YASHVI: I had a pretty good role model. Come here, Mum! Mum always stands up for what is right.
Yashvi doesn't think she can end racism but fighting it can make a huge difference.
Shane comes to talk to Leo about Marisa and tells him she's the one who said all the racist stuff to Yashvi. Shane wants Leo to fire her but Leo says he can't do anything unless she's done something in the workplace. Shane says it's only a matter of time before something happens here and reminds Leo of what he said earlier.
SHANE: I want to do everything I can to protect my family.
LEO: You want me to break the rules?
SHANE: That's not much of a stretch for you is it? Listen, I thought you'd be on my family's side. What if this had happened to Mishti? I want that kid gone. You've got to find a reason to fire her!
- It's the same promo we've had all week of the women of Ramsay Street eyeing up Cassius
