Lassiters Hotel, Terese's Office
Terese enters her office wearing her bathrobe, surprised to see Paul there waiting for her. She claims she was in the sauna and remembered about an urgent email she had to send. Paul wants to talk about David's wedding reception at the Waterhole and wants Terese to look over it. Terese says she has an urgent email and David's wedding isn't a priority right now. Paul says he'll get Leo to help and asks if she knows where he is.
TERESE: No I don't know where he is, why would I, I'm not his keeper?
PAUL: Alright, alright. Don't get your knickers in a knot… if you're wearing any.

Leo is in the lift, in a bathrobe, picturing Terese in the sauna. He smiles.
Toadie apologises to Piper for returning late, as he brings in Hugo and Nell with him. Piper brings him up to speed on the calls he's had while he was out. Piper says the hospital in Hobart rang and they need to know where to forward Andrea's mail. Piper gave this address as she figured he and Sonya wouldn't want to deal with it at home. Toadie says that was a good idea.
Piper tells Cassius that Toadie seems to be happy so she must be doing something right. Cassius says it is the opposite for him at work, he isn't impressing Sonya at all. Sonya hasn't said anything, but it just isn't gelling. Piper tells him to give it time. Cassius goes to the bathroom, leaving his phone which starts ringing. Piper lets it ring out.

Lassiters Hotel, Penthouse
Paul finds Leo on the balcony in a towel. He says he had a shower after his sauna. Paul says Terese had a sauna earlier too, and wonders if Leo saw her. Leo says he must have been there later. Paul says Terese seemed rattled, you might even say ‘hot under the collar.' Paul thinks its because she found him in her office while she was half naked. Leo nods.
Terese is waiting for her coffee to be made, the steam from the machine makes her picture Leo in the sauna. As she collects her coffee she instructs the voice activation on her phone to call Imogen. Amy arrives for her date with Rob. Rob offers Amy either lunch at a delicious bistro in town or the new games room at Lassiters. Amy agrees to the games room.

Susan tells Toadie that Sonya was quite upset about the mix up at day care. Susan says it is hard for Sonya. Toadie knows Susan has been in the same situation as Sonya, with Holly. Susan says Holly was a teenager when she came to stay and it was only for a very short time. She's come to terms with it because she's always felt included in Karl's relationship with Holly. That's the most important thing above anything else. Toadie says he has an idea.
Toadie arrives and tells Sonya that Susan's happy to look after the kids as long as they need. The last thing he wants is for Sonya to feel excluded, so he was thinking they had a naming day ceremony for Hugo. He says it's a way to introduce Hugo to the community and publicly committing to raising him together. Sonya isn't Hugo's mother, Andrea is, and doing something like this is like rubbing it in her face. Toadie says that isn't his intention, they should create their own memories and landmarks with him, for their life. Sonya goes to think about it.

Terese joins Paul and Leo. Paul tells Terese to help with David's wedding but Terese says she can't as she's taken a week off effective immediately. She's flying to LA to visit Imogen. Paul just spoke to Daniel and there isn't a problem there. Terese didn't say there was a problem, she's just going. Paul asks who is going to manage the hotel, but Terese says it is only for a week and she's put procedures in place. Paul tells her to do a handover with Leo. Terese insists that its all covered, and she doesn't need his permission to take leave. Terese gets a call. She tells them she has to go and deal with this, its Chloe.
Sonya comes to collect Nell and Hugo. Susan says Nell's in the greenhouse with Karl and offers Sonya a cup of tea. Sonya looks at Hugo who's in his buggie, before joining Susan. She doesn't think a symbolic ceremony is going to make her feel a part of Hugo's life. Sonya thinks he's trying to force something which will take time. Susan tells her that she just has to choose to commit to him. Sonya says it isn't about committing to him, but if she accepts him then she's accepting Andrea back into their life, what if she comes back? Susan says Andrea will still be in the picture, even if they never see her again, and they have no control over what Andrea does. Susan tells her to focus on what she can control and what she wants to be to that little boy.

Terese says his feelings are one sided. She's only leaving because they need space, and some time away from her will let him realise that there is nothing going on here. When she gets back they will be nothing more than colleagues. Terese says goodbye to him.
Piper tells Toadie and Sonya that this is a beautiful venue for Hugo's naming day. Piper tells them to pick a day and she'll clear Toadie's schedule. Sonya asks Cassius to make the place look good for the ceremony. He says he's on it. Toadie takes Nell to pick some flowers for the ceremony. They leave Piper with Hugo, while Toadie asks Sonya about the awkwardness with Cassius. Sonya says she's a bit disappointed. Cassius advertised himself as a gardening expert but he doesn't even know basic horticulture. Toadie's surprised as he's been working on everyone's gardens for the last few months.
Meanwhile, Piper tells Cassius that hanging out with Hugo makes her miss her nephew. She tells him he'll have to meet Gabe someday, he's so cute. Toadie calls Piper over for some help, leaving Cassius to watch Hugo. Cassius looks at Hugo, then has a flashback to running through a hotel, hearing a baby crying. He jimmies the door open with a credit card. Then we cut to Cassius at the door of Number 24, putting baby Gabe on the doorstep. He tells Gabe that it will be alright, before leaving him there.

Amy suggests they try out that bistro for lunch.
The Flametree Retreat
Gary leaves Amy a message.
SHEILA: If she didn't answer its probably because she's too busy swinging in doctor delectable's eyes.
SHEILA: The best looking man in Erinsborough Hospital, and even though I love him to death, I include Clive in that assessment.
GARY: Looks aren't everything mum.
SHEILA: I know love, but its not like he's smart or anything, he's only an obstetrician, a gynaecologist, he's got a masters of linguistics…
GARY: Yeah I bet he can't cook to save himself!
(Gary walks off)
SHEILA: Hmm, we'll see.
