Apartment of Evil™
‘Patrick' is waiting for a response from Bea to his proposal.
FINN: Aren't you gonna say something?
BEA: It's just so out- of- the- blue…
FINN: I know. I didn't want to spring it on you like this. I wanted to plan it out properly. I don't even have a ring yet. You deserve better.
BEA: Well, you caught me by surprise.
BEA: Yes! But – some things need to change between us.
FINN: I know. I'm not coping with what happened to me. And you were right with what you said the other day; I do need help. I'm trying, but I just feel so anxious at the thought of meeting people while I'm paralysed.
BEA: No, there's no reason to feel that way.
Finn says he's asked his rehab nurse to recommend him some counsellors. Bea asks if this means he'll be ready to meet her family soon.
BEA: I want to tell them that we're engaged.
FINN: We will. Really soon. We'll… surprise them.
Bea suggests brunch tomorrow with Elly and the Kennedys, promising she'd be there to support ‘Patrick'.
FINN: Let's do it!
They kiss and hug, but Finn is now looking worried…
Leo finds Mishti at a table looking forlorn. Leo's still annoyed that Dilhan is able to walk around free after what he did to her. Mishti explains Dilhan's family is super- rich; their fancy lawyers got him bail, and the same lawyers will be representing him at trial – so he'll probably just get a slap on the wrist. Mishti says she can't do any more; the police have done their bit, and it's up to the courts.
LEO: Yeah, but you're the victim this time, Mish. Don't you want to fight back?
MISHTI: Even if I wanted to, I can't. And it's not your job to protect me.
LEO: Well, I can't just stop caring about what happens to you.
Mishti prepares to head home; she's not working tomorrow, and Leo suggests she spend the day with friends so as not to end up sitting around stressing about the video. Mishti says it's a good idea.
Mishti and Yashvi are hanging out by the pool. Yashvi asks if Mishti thinks she got off too lightly when she showed Freya Stone the nude photos of Ben Kirk – worrying that it's the same as what Dilhan did. But Mishti replies that she doesn't want to think about any of that today.
David and Aaron show up from nowhere. They claim to be stuck for wedding ideas, and want Mishti to help them brainstorm ideas. Mishti quickly twigs that Leo has sent them to babysit her, but they say that they still genuinely want her input on the wedding – so she agrees.
Chloe comes to see Leo. She's looking for tips to help save money rather than spending all her pay when it comes in. Leo suggests she share it between two accounts. She could even make it go directly to Fay's account to pay off what Chloe owes her. Chloe is keen on this, as she wants to make sure Fay has enough money to stay in Adelaide and support Tyler.
Leo observes how unfair it is that Tyler went to jail for a ‘one- off mistake', while Dilhan is still roaming around free after distributing Mishti's video.
CHLOE: If only she'd taken Cassius home instead!
LEO: What, was that an option?
CHLOE: … Maybe. The point is, a girl shouldn't have to be scared to go out and have some fun.
LEO: Exactly! This Dilhan guy needs to be taught a lesson.
Bea has gathered Karl, Susan and Elly for the brunch, and has told them she's got a surprise for them. She won't say what it is, yet, though, and asks Susan how her remyelination trial is going. Susan says she's just had one round of infusions, with no side effects so far. Elly's impatient, and wants to know what it is Bea is surprising them with. So Bea goes to make a phone call to ‘Patrick'.
Apartment of Evil™ / The Waterhole
Finn appears to be doing something creepy with some women's clothes; he has laid some high- heel shoes on the floor, and some jeans and a top on the bed, all aligned as if a person lying on the bed were actually wearing them. The call from Bea comes through.
FINN: Babe, you are gonna kill me.
BEA: What – what's happened?
Finn explains he's managed to get a psychologist appointment, as one of the clinics had a cancellation – but it will mean he won't be able to get to the brunch. Bea's very disappointed, but Finn reminds her that appointments like this are hard to come by.
FINN: Remember, I'm doing this for you. My state of mind's been putting all this extra pressure on you.
BEA: I can handle it. But, yeah – I mean, it's good that you're seeing someone.
FINN: You're an angel, you know that? And we'll announce your engagement to your family soon, okay?
They finish up the call, and Bea is forced to return to the table and make up a new ‘surprise' – namely, that she got a high distinction in one of her apprenticeship assignments. Karl, Susan and Elly all pretend not to be underwhelmed, and Bea looks awkward.
Back in the apartment, we see Finn gathering up the clothes from the bed. He's then seen putting a bag into a cupboard, presumably containing the clothes.
Leo is talking to Toadie about the Mishti/Dilhan situation. Toadie says Dilhan getting bail ‘sucks', but that that's how the law goes sometimes. Toadie adds that he'll be helping Mishti put together a victim impact statement, which could help when it goes to court.
LEO: In the meantime, she just has to wait and hope that he doesn't do anything?
TOADIE: Unfortunately, yeah – more or less.
LEO: Well, what if he breaches his bail terms? You know, if he were to do something bad like assault someone, or…?
TOADIE: Well, he'd have to be an idiot to get in a fight while he's still on bail.
LEO: Yeah. Yeah, you're probably right.
Mishti is helping David and Aaron with the wedding plans.
MISHTI: What about a classic fairy- tale theme? I mean, because you'll obviously live happily ever after.
David and Aaron pretend to love this idea, while Chloe watches from the kitchen.
CHLOE: What are you saying? You're gonna dress up like Disney princes?
DAVID: Well, it… it's worth exploring! What would our bridal party be dressed as?
MISHTI: Your valets and ladies- in- waiting!
Mishti rushes off to get some paper to start making notes, while Chloe quietly reminds Aaron and David that they wanted something elegant and modern. David replies that Mishti ‘needs the win', just as she rejoins them.
MISHTI: Call me crazy…
CHLOE: You're crazy!
MISHTI: … but what if your Prince Charming outfits were pink?
AARON and DAVID: …
Bea is telling Yashvi how ‘Patrick' bailed on their surprise brunch, although adds that he was at least seeking help for his anxiety. Yashvi reminds Bea that she was supposed to stick up for herself.
BEA: I did, sort of… And then he proposed.
YASVHI: Woah. That's a lot. What did you say?
BEA: Yes! I love him, and I do want to spend the rest of my life with him.
YASHVI: You're only 20, and you haven't been together that long.
BEA: Long enough for him to turn his whole world upside- down for me. No- one's ever cared that much about me, ever.
YASHVI: Maybe you should take some time – make sure he is who you think he is.
BEA: What is that supposed to mean?!
Yashvi explains what happened between Mishti and Dilhan, pointing out that not everyone who seems nice on the surface is necessarily worth being with. Bea is offended by the comparison with Dilhan.
YASHVI: I'm just saying it sounds like he hides bits of himself from you. And hides himself completely from the people you care about.
Bea says ‘Patrick' is working on all this, but Yashvi isn't convinced. Citing David and Aaron as another RSR example, she says they're 100% a team.
YASHVI: Can you say the same about you and Patrick?
Mishti continues to come up with dreadful and/or expensive ideas for the boys' wedding.
MISHTI: I'm thinking a live string quartet!
DAVID: … Tea? Did you want tea? Do you want tea? I want tea.
AARON: Yeah, let's make some tea.
While David and Aaron frantically discuss ways of shutting down Mishti's ideas in the kitchen, Mishti finds a list of ideas that they'd already made before she arrived. ‘Elegant, modern, classy; 100 people max; NO TACKY THEMES,' it says! Mishti realises the boys have been going along with her ideas to cheer her up, and decides to have some fun when they return to the couch.
MISHTI: Since you'll both be Prince Charmings, you should enter *on horseback*!
DAVID: Oh, wow! Look at you go – you're like an ideas machine!
Mishti smirks as she watches David and Aaron pretend not to hate the idea!
Susan and Elly are discussing Bea's odd ‘surprise' announcement earlier, which they feel was excessive for a single exam result. Meanwhile, Elly notes some curious activity on her Instagram account; she's been having a lot of views on her stories from someone with a private account.
SUSAN: Ooh, you might have a secret admirer!
ELLY: Fine by me, as long as it's not Wayne Baxter!
Leo and Chloe walk in. Chloe has been using Facebook to track down Dilhan, and surprise, surprise, they've traced him to… The Waterhole, of course, where he's busy playing pool with a couple of henchmen! Leo goes to talk to him; Chloe warns him not to do anything crazy. But for now, Leo just asks Dilhan if he can join the pool game…
The farce continues.
MISHTI: So, we've definitely settled on the medieval costumes for the orchestra. But you know what? Now I'm questioning the whole two Prince Charmings angle.
DAVID (relieved): We could easily rethink it!
MISHTI: Mm, and having you both in pink, on horseback – it's too much, isn't it?
AARON (relieved): Yes! Like, if you think so.
MISHTI: Yeah. so I think we should have Aaron as the prince on horseback, and we make David the one in pink. Maybe with flowers… and maybe even a veil for fun. More like a princess! It's more of a traditional bride- and- groom feel, you know? Even though you're obviously both guys!
DAVID: But we *are* both guys, and we don't want to be a bride and a groom, or a prince and princess! We want to be us! In fact the whole fairy- tale thing, it's… it's wrong. It's just tacky and awful!
MISHTI: … I can't believe it took you so long to crack!
Mishti laughs as they realise they've been wound up!
MISHTI: If you hated every word I was saying, you should've just said so!
DAVID: You were having fun for the first time in days.
AARON: Yeah, we didn't want to burst your bubble.
MISHTI: I'm not that fragile!
Mishti decides to shout them all dessert at Harold's, where they can discuss real wedding plans.
Mishti, Aaron and David walk in, now having a serious wedding discussion, and randomly decide to sit down with Bea and talk to her about it too.
DAVID: Even though I'm a groom and not a bride, I think I might ask Dad to walk me down the aisle.
AARON: Oh, you know what? I might ask Mum to walk me down, too.
BEA: It's nice the people you love are so… supportive.
Bea asks if they'd considered a private wedding; Aaron replies it's not his style, and David says it took him so long to come to terms with himself that he now wants to shout it from the rooftops. Aaron adds that the wedding's not just about them; it's about spending time with the people they care about. Bea looks affected by this, and rushes off as she's got ‘something to do'.
Apartment of Evil™
Bea comes in to find ‘Patrick' in his wheelchair, wearing a suit.
FINN: It's my wedding suit.
BEA: It's gorgeous.
FINN: I saw it in the window of a shop on the way home from the counsellor's office. It was half- price – couldn't resist.
He says the session went well; the psychologist has given him lots of strategies to help with anxiety, including meeting new people.
BEA: I do need to talk to you. About the wedding.
FINN: I know. And I bet I can guess what it is. You're uneasy about committing to the engagement when I haven't even met the people you love yet.
BEA: Yeah, exactly. Getting married, it's – it's not only about us.
FINN: I understand. I promise.
‘Patrick' then springs his next surprise – and ‘struggles' out of his wheelchair, to his feet. Bea is surprised to see him standing.
FINN: I pushed myself too far yesterday. But I am getting better. Soon, I'll be able to come and visit your sister, your auntie and your uncle. And when we're married, I'll be able to walk up that aisle, with you on my arm – with all of them watching on.
FINN: I love you, Bea. And I know things are difficult right now. But I swear to you, it'll all be worth it.
As the pool game continues, Leo hatches his plan to get Dilhan into a fight and break his bail conditions. He tells Dilhan he recognised him when he came in.
LEO: Saw a video of you online.
DILHAN: My latest one? The dirty cop? It's probably the best video I've done – she was loving it.
LEO: I dunno. She seemed kind of bored to me. I reckon if a guy knows what he's doing, he doesn't have to get his kicks with dodgy stuff like that.
DILHAN: Do you have a problem?
LEO: Yeah, I do. You're a lowlife with no respect for women. And you get away with assault cos you've got a rich daddy to bail you out.
DILHAN: I didn't assault anyone.
LEO: Did she say you could take the video, or put it online? You're scum. Trying to make yourself feel big – probably because you're overcompensating for something.
DILHAN: Let's take this outside.
LEO: You're on.
Apartment of Evil™
Finn and Bea are lying in bed cuddling, presumably having TITTNL™.
BEA: I don't know what I'd do without you.
FINN: You never have to worry about that. So, who do you want to invite to the wedding?
Bea turns to face Finn, but he sees her as Elly instead!
ELLY: It doesn't matter. I only care about you. I just want to be with you forever.
ELLY: What do you think?
Finn is lost in his own thoughts, and suddenly, Elly has turned back into Bea again.
BEA: Patrick? What do you think?
BEA: I said we should start writing a list of people that we should invite.
Bea turns away from him again, and he kisses her on the shoulder creepily.
Dilhan and Leo are arguing outside; Dilhan says he's already in trouble with the cops for the video, so he doesn't see what Leo's problem is.
LEO: You deserve so much worse. You should be locked up!
DILHAN: It's none of your business.
LEO: It's everyone's business if someone like you's running around free.
DILHAN: Mate, you're crossing the line.
LEO: Take a swing at me, then! Let's do it!
Dilhan realises that Leo just wants to get him in a fight so his bail will be retracted.
DILHAN: Why are you getting so upset that I got bail?
LEO: Cos I hate guys like you.
DILHAN: You know her – the cop, Mishti. What are you, the ex? That's why you're getting so worked up!
LEO: It doesn't matter! The point is what you did.
DILHAN: You're jealous I got a taste!
Leo loses his temper, shoving Dilhan and telling him not to talk about Mishti like that.
DILHAN: You should watch the video again, get some tips. Mishti loved it! Clearly she never got what she wanted from you.
It's getting physical now, and a passer- by throws off his backpack and walks over to break up the fight. Leo throws a punch just as the passer- by walks between them, hitting him in the face by accident, which allows Dilhan the chance to walk away.
LEO: Sorry, mate – what were you doing?
PASSER- BY: Trying to break it up.
As Leo assesses the damage to the man's face, we see who it is. It's NED WILLIS!!!
