- Mishti and Pavan tell Dipi they're engaged.
- Mishti tells Dipi that Pavan has seen the video Dilhan recorded of her.
- Dipi tells Mishti that Pavan received a link to the video and that she wasn't to blame.
- David says that Terese doesn't care about Gary being with someone else.
- Leo and Terese discuss going public with their relationship.
- Paul tells David and Aaron he's going to tell Terese he wants to be with her.
- Leo and Terese are all over each other at the penthouse.
Terese and Leo hear someone coming and she rushes out onto the balcony half-dressed. Paul walks in to find Leo semi-clothed and asks what he's doing. Leo unconvincingly says that he's been doing some yoga but Paul clearly doesn't believe him. Paul walks into the kitchen saying he fancies a scotch, Terese walks back in looking panicked but Leo ushers her onto the balcony again.
Shane tells Dipi he's worried that only a few people have said they're coming to the Tinkle Facebook Live event. They carry on discussing it while Mishti hurries Dipi along as she wants her coffee before work. Shane asks Mishti if she's coming to the Tinkle event but she declines, before Dipi says that Dr Rob's coming and it might help her get over her failed engagement.
MISHTI: Sure I'll get over my failed engagement by chatting to the guy who wouldn't even give me a second date.
DIPI: Ok, no need to get snappy.
MISHTI: No need to interfere in my love life yet here you go again.
They proceed to carry on arguing and Mishti says it's no wonder she wants to move out. As Shane and Mishti leave, Dipi sees a poster for the Level Sevens improv show on the wall.
Paul tells Leo that he's going to go over to Terese's tonight and tell her how much she means to him.
PAUL: She's got passion and drive, and intelligence. You know she challenges me. Makes me feel alive. She brings out the vulnerable side in me too don't worry. You know I don't think there's ever been a woman who's done that. That's rare. She's rare.
Paul can tell that Leo thinks it's a bad idea but he carries on telling him that he wants to make amends and that he believes he's the only man who can truly be Terese's equal.
The Doug Out
Shane rummages through the shed and finds an old bottle of what seems to be beer. He takes a swig and underneath there is a scrap book which contains what looks like a recipe.
Shane gives Toadie a bottle of beer to taste while Nell sits in the corner colouring in. They assume the alcohol must have belonged to Doug Willis. Shane mulls over his week, saying there's barely been any peace and quiet recently. Toadie seems to know how he feels as he's been juggling the kids and work until he can get them back into day care. They plan to finish off the beer soon and Shane tells Toadie that he's even found the recipe. They excitedly decide to make some more home brew soon. Shane tries to add Tinkle to the recipe but Toadie looks unimpressed before quickly giving in.
Paul goes to have a shower before he heads over to tell Terese how he feels. After he exits, Terese rushes in saying it's freezing out there on the balcony but Leo just wants to know if she heard anything Paul said. She admits it was weird hearing him say those things.
TERESE: My feelings haven't changed. It's you that I want.
They kiss passionately. Paul walks in and looks completely stunned.
PAUL: What is this?
LEO: Terese and I are in a relationship.
PAUL: Since when?
TERESE: Since Aaron and David's wedding.
LEO: We didn't want you to find out like this, we were going to tell you.
TERESE: It's true, we were just talking about it tonight...I'm so sorry. We're sorry, we had no intention of hurting you.
Paul looks absolutely mortified and hobbles out of the room.
Back Lane Bar
Dipi walks in and soon finds Pavan who is annoyed to see her. He asks how she knew he was there and she says she'd heard about the Level Sevens playing there and presumed he'd be there. He says he has nothing to say to her or Mishti but Dipi pleads with him to hear her out.
Paul clutches a drink in his hand and looks over Erinsborough on the balcony at his penthouse.
Terese tells Ned about what just happened. She feels bad as Paul was already so upset about Gary and Amy being together and hearing him pour his heart out was gut-wrenching when she knew she was with Leo. Ned asks whether her relationship with Leo is worth all this trouble and she assures him it is; she just wishes it didn't cause so much hurt.
Back Lane Bar
Pavan tells Dipi that he's not upset about the video but the fact that Mishti hid what happened from him. He'd opened up to her about all his past secrets but he feels like Mishti didn't do that for him.
DIPI: The thing is, that video wasn't something Mishti did. It was done to her. She was an unwilling victim of crime.
Dipi tells Pavan how devastated Mishti is that he called off the wedding. She urges him to contact Mishti if there's any part of him that regrets ending things.
Shane and Toadie leave Harold's after collecting utensils to make their home brew. They bump into Ned on their way out and tell him they found some of Doug's old home brew, inviting him over to make some with them. He accepts the invitation but worries that Yashvi might not be happy to see him. Shane assures him that Vi must be over him by now. They look surprised as Pavan enters. He says he's come to see Mishti.
Pavan approaches Mishti who admits she thought she'd never see him again. He says that chatting with Dipi gave him a different perspective on things and perhaps he'd been a bit rash in calling things off. He says he wants to give things another go if she does.
Paul tells Leo that the position for General Manager at Lassiters Dubai has opened up. Leo knows that Paul is only suggesting it to get him away from Terese but Paul persists.
PAUL: Don't be a fool Leo. A job like this will last. Your relationship won't.
Leo apologizes for pursuing things with Terese. He says he ignored his feelings at first but then found out Terese felt the same. They thought Paul had moved on with Jemima and by the time they realized they were wrong it was too late.
Shane, Toadie and Ned prepare to make home brew. Dipi complains about how messy the kitchen's going to be before Ned protests about the addition of Tinkle to the recipe. After some convincing they persevere with producing the alcohol.
Paul barges in to Terese's office.
TERESE: I was going to come and see you.
PAUL: So, how long do you think it's going to last then?
TERESE: I beg your pardon.
PAUL: Leo is a young, attractive and very successful man. And sure he's into you but he could have any woman he wants. Terese, you and I have seen this scenario play out a hundred times before. So just how long do you think it'll be before he swaps you for somebody younger, hm?
TERESE: Listen, I know you're upset Paul. But trying to play me on any insecurity that I might have about my age is low, even for you.
PAUL: Low?! You want to talk low. Sleeping with my son to punish me. That's low. Cruel even.
TERESE: Believe it or not Paul, this isn't about you.
PAUL: Really, so what is it about then?
TERESE: This is about what I want. What will make me feel happy and safe. What will make me feel like I am somebody's priority.
PAUL: You get all that from Leo, do you?
TERESE: Yeah, yeah, I do! And the truth is even if I wasn't with him. I still wouldn't be with you.
Terese walks away leaving Paul looking taken aback.
Shane asks Mishti how things went with Pavan.
DIPI: What's this, have you heard from Pavan?
MISHTI: Don't pretend like you don't know. He told me you tracked him down.
SHANE: Were you interfering again?
DIPI: I couldn't sit around and do nothing.
Pavan walks in and tells Mishti his parents have given their approval for the wedding. They all celebrate.
Leo admits to Terese he thought Paul's reaction would be much worse but Terese says he's still processing it and soon he'll be much harder to deal with. Leo promises to weather the storm together.
Paul looks deep in thought. He sees a photo of Leo on the side and angrily shoves it in a drawer.
Pavan is putting up decorations in the back garden. Mishti thanks Dipi for interfering this time. Pavan gets off the phone, having just received a job offer for a prestigious dental clinic. Dipi and Mishti congratulate him but he doesn't seem very happy. After some probing he says the job's in Sydney.
LEO: I'm gonna go and stay at the Backpackers for a while. And I really hope that one day we can move on from this.
PAUL: You honestly think we can just move on from this hey, and play happy families after everything you've done!
Paul grabs some of Leo's clothes and throws them off the balcony.
LEO: Dad please, just stop!
PAUL: Don't you dare call me that! You are no son of mine! You never were! Get out!...Oh, and consider yourself fired.
PAUL: Get out of my house now!
Leo looks upset.
