- Bea and Finn decide to become a couple, and kiss
- Terese tells Paul that he needs to find a way to open up to Harlow about Robert
- Paul gives Harlow the letter he wrote for Robert when he thought he was dying
- Leo tells Terese that someone needs to get through to Roxy, or she'll crash and burn
- Jemima makes a query over being invoiced twice for the oven at the tram
- Kyle overhears Paul and Sheila discussing their collaboration to split up Amy and Gary
- Kyle confronts Sheila about it, and demands she tell him everything she's done
- Amy tells Kyle she's breaking up with Gary; she can't stay with him while having Feelings™ for Kyle
The scene continues; Kyle tells Amy he thinks she should 'sit on this' for a while before telling Gary that she's leaving him.
AMY: Why? It doesn't change anything.
KYLE: It's a big deal - calling off a wedding. You want to make sure it's what you really want.
AMY: I *am* sure.
She takes his hand, but they separate as Gary comes in. Gary's been trying to get hold of Kyle; he asks if he's sorted out the invoicing confusion with Jemima. Kyle says it's all sorted, and tells a worried Gary to chill out. Gary's still confused at how the invoicing mix- up happened in the first place. Kyle says it's just one of those things.
Gary makes arrangements with Amy to meet up at the complex in an hour or so, then kisses her and leaves. Gary drags Kyle back to work with him.
Karl joins Dee in the sofa area; he says it's wonderful to have her here.
DEE: You know, it's wonderful being here.
He asks about the journal she's writing. She says that writing in journals helped her make sense of things after the accident, and that there's been so much going on lately that she's taken it up again.
DEE: I think if you write down your feelings, it validates them.
Meanwhile, Finn is at the table, working on his laptop; he explains to Susan that he's tallying up the proceeds of the bachelor auction. He reports that Toadie was 'stoked' with how it went; Susan agrees that it was a great day, but comments that Finn was stuck in the office the whole time (with Bea, unbeknownst to Susan).
Susan is surprised to get a phone call from Rita Newland, her pharmaceutical magnate acquaintance. She goes into the bedroom to take the call...
Terese is working on the patio, while Paul is pacing anxiously. Harlow emerges from the house, with Paul's unsent letter to Robert; she's read it.
HARLOW: Must've been hard for you to write.
PAUL: Yeah, yeah - it's always difficult to face up to one's own failings.
HARLOW: You said you regret not being the father Robert needed.
PAUL: No, I let him down. And that is something that I will regret for the rest of my life.
HARLOW: Well, would you send it to him now?
PAUL: No point. Not gonna change anything. It's certainly not gonna help.
HARLOW: Well, it helped me, so thank you.
She hands the envelope back to him.
HARLOW: I was wondering if it'd be okay to extend my stay?
PAUL: Yeah, of course.
TERESE: Yeah, for how long?
HARLOW: Just until the end of the year - I mean, unless it's a problem.
TERESE: No, no - not at all! We'll have to check with your mum first, of course.
HARLOW: Oh, trust me, she'll be fine.
PAUL: Well, in that case, we'd love to have you.
TERESE: Would you like to enrol in school?
HARLOW: Yeah, I would. Do you think they'd let me enrol as Harlow Robinson? I was thinking that's what I'd like to go by.
TERESE: I don't know. I think you'd have to go with the name on your ID.
PAUL: Yeah, but don't you worry - because I will always be proud to call you a Robinson.
HARLOW: Thank you... Grandad? Is that what I should call you now?
Paul reluctantly agrees, much to Terese's amusement!
Susan reports to Karl, Finn and Dee that Rita has invited her to Sydney next week for a second round of remyelination therapy for her multiple sclerosis. Toadie turns up, and Susan shares the news with him too; apparently, the deterioration of her myelin has slowed as a result of the first round of treatment, which is really encouraging. Susan goes to organise her flights.
Meanwhile, Toadie has news for Dee.
TOADIE: The prison called. Andrea wants to see you. Apparently, she has something that she has to tell you.
Sheila is working behind the bar, when Clive comes in; he's scored them a booking at the new tapas place tonight. Sheila is distracted; Clive senses something is up. She diverts attention by sending him to fetch her phone from the office. Clive assents, but tells her the conversation isn't over.
Kyle comes in. He still looks pretty sore at Sheila.
SHEILA: I suppose Amy and your dad will never forgive me.
KYLE: I haven't dobbed you in yet.
SHEILA: Does that mean you're not going to?
KYLE: Gran, you've ruined everything! Amy told me she still loves me.
SHEILA: She said she still loves you?
KYLE: It doesn't matter. When Amy finds out her relationship problems were you and Paul, she won't want a bar of any of us. And Dad, he's gonna be gutted. I hope that makes you happy.
Kyle strops off.
Susan is telling Paul and Terese just how easy it will be to transfer Harlow to Erinsborough High from her school in England: namely, very. Susan commends their bravery for taking on a teenager, but agrees with Terese that it will surely be fun having Harlow around. Susan leaves, and Terese tells Paul that she thinks this will be great for all of them.
PAUL: Terese, thank you. Thank you for taking all of this in your stride. I love you so much, I really do; and all of this business with Robert, all of the bad memories and everything - you know, I couldn't have asked for a better partner.
TERESE: You know, I feel the same.
PAUL: Hey, listen - not so long ago, you asked me a question. I was wondering if that's still on the table.
TERESE: Oh! Yes - yes, absolutely!
PAUL: Yes? In that case, I accept. Let's get married!
TERESE: Yes! Oh, my god!
She hugs him excitedly, and Paul produces an engagement ring.
PAUL: If you don't like it, I can always take it back.
But Terese thinks it's beautiful, and can't wait to pull it onto her finger!
TERESE: Look, it fits perfectly!
PAUL: It does, doesn't it?
They kiss again.
Aaron is feeling 'like a slab of meat'; at Mrs Punt's behest, following her win at the bachelor auction, he is dressed in only sparkly hot pants while mowing the grass by the pavement. Leo is finding this mildly amusing, but David is feeling guilty after he failed to outbid Mrs Punt himself, having lent Chloe all his cash to bid on Pierce.
Roxy approaches, but completely blanks them all, and marches moodily into No 32. Leo reports that she's been this way since her parents split; he's tried to help, but she just wants to wallow.
LEO: It's killing our business, and slowly driving me insane.
Paul approaches, and eyes Aaron with mild amusement. He asks to speak to Leo in private. Paul and Leo go off to talk, while David hurries Aaron along with the mowing, enjoying a brief perv as he strops past.
On the patio, Paul has news for Leo; he and Terese are getting married, and he wanted Leo to be the first to know.
PAUL: Look, if you want to talk about it...
LEO: There's not much to say, really, is there? Apart from... congratulations, of course. I know you've been wanting this for a while.
PAUL: Yeah... We're gonna be cracking open a few bottles with everyone, so I'd really love you to be part of that, mate.
Leo hesitates, and Paul says he understands if he can't.
LEO: Yeah, I, umm... can I just think about it?
PAUL: Yeah, yeah. Course you can.
Paul gets up to leave.
LEO: Dad... Thanks for telling me in person.
Paul leaves, and Leo looks conflicted.
Toadie and Dee are in the visitor centre, waiting to see Andrea. Toadie reminds Dee that they can leave any time she wants - but at that moment, Andrea shows up, looking rather smiley.
ANDREA: Want a biccie?
But neither of them do! Andrea asks if the DNA results are back; Dee replies that they're still waiting.
ANDREA: Yeah, unbelievable, eh?
She shouts so as to get the guard's attention.
ANDREA: Don't they know people are waiting for this stuff?
DEE: You wanted to tell me something?
ANDREA: Yeah, look - I'm - I had this memory, keeps coming back to me.
She acknowledges that Toadie was there when it first surfaced in the hypnosis session with Beverly.
ANDREA: When I was a kid - I dunno, like, four or five - this woman came up to me in the schoolyard. She had red hair. She wanted to know if I was happy - you know, if I was being taken care of.
DEE: And what has that got to do with anything?
ANDREA: Well, you thought that we might be twins. I mean, this red- haired woman, she could be our real mum, you know? Just coming to see if I was okay ... What?!
Toadie is smiling cynically.
DEE: Right. And this memory just magically came back, did it?
TOADIE: (...) You faked all that.
ANDREA: No - no, I did not. Not with Dr Robinson, I didn't.
DEE: Did you ask your mother about this woman?
ANDREA: Yeah, I did. She said she didn't know anything about it.
TOADIE: Which could mean anything.
ANDREA: Look, I think I need to go under again. Come on - can't you just work it out? We could do it here?
DEE: You know, I think we should just wait till the DNA results come back.
Despite Andrea's protestations that they could do both, Dee and Toadie get up to leave.
ANDREA: Why does she get to make all the decisions?!
DEE: Thank you for sharing your memory with us. But I don't see any point talking further until we get the results back.
Andrea storms after Dee, shouting that she didn't make up the memory. The guard guides Andrea back to her seat, and Andrea pointedly doesn't give the guard a biscuit, eating it slowly in front of her by way of retribution!
Leo is sitting by the pool when Roxy turns up, to moan about 'Paul and his bridezilla'.
ROXY: She invited me over to celebrate! Can you believe this?! Did you flip when he told you? Because, it's like... it's like they walk all over everyone, and then get everything they want!
LEO: ... I'm not angry.
ROXY: She is the last person that Paul should go anywhere near.
LEO: I dunno; they make a better match than his last fiancée. Courtney was twenty- two.
ROXY: How are you so calm about this, huh?
LEO: Well, losing it won't change the way they feel about each other.
Roxy announces that she's going to take matters into her own hands; Leo asks how.
ROXY: I'm gonna burn their house down.
On a bench, Gary tells Amy that he understands why she thought he 'did a dodgy' on Jemima. Amy apologises, admitting she should have been more trusting of him, but Gary says it's not a problem; she's had plenty of reason to doubt him in the past, so he'll just keep working to earn back her trust. Kyle approaches, watching them from a distance.
GARY: And about the engagement - you just tell me what you want, when you want it, and I'll make it happen. But there's no pressure - I just want you to be happy.
AMY: You need to be happy, too.
GARY: Yeah, well, whatever makes you happy makes me happy.
AMY: ... Okay. I'll think about it.
GARY: Great. We're good.
AMY: We're good.
But Amy looks anything but good, as Gary kisses her, and leaves. Kyle then approaches her; she admits she couldn't break up with Gary.
KYLE: There's a few things you need to know before you make any decisions. The whole Jemima invoice thing - it wasn't a stuff- up. It was deliberate. And it was supposed to make you think that Dad was up to something.
Amy correctly guesses that Paul was to blame, but is then surprised when Kyle tells her that Sheila has been helping Paul to drive a wedge between Amy and Gary.
KYLE: They've been messing with all of us.
Toadie and Dee come in; she asks if Toadie thinks there's anything to Andrea's red- haired woman story. Toadie doesn't know.
DEE: Why would she make something like that up at this stage?
TOADIE: Well, even if it's true, it doesn't mean that it's relevant.
TOADIE: Why? Does it mean something to you?
DEE: I dunno. I've been racking my brain - nothing. I guess it all relies on this DNA test. Hopefully, it can give us some answers.
TOADIE: How are you feeling about that? Now you've seen more of Andrea?
DEE: I'm terrified I'm not really a Bliss. That I might have the same parents as her (...) I just want the truth now. I just want the truth, that's all.
We're with you there, Dee! She thanks Toadie for being so supportive, and by her side.
DEE: It means a lot.
They hold hands.
Paul, Terese, Ned, David, Aaron and Harlow are celebrating the engagement with champagne on the patio. (Harlow is drinking orange juice, because this is Neighbours.) Harlow reveals to David that she's decided to stick around for a few months, and stay with Paul and Terese. He's pleased to hear this.
HARLOW: So, I've been thinking... is Terese wife number four, or... five?
DAVID: Six, I think...?
Meanwhile, Ned gently ribs Aaron about his scantily-clad gardening for Mrs Punt. Aaron doesn't want to talk about it! Leo turns up, having decided that 'sulking is not such a good look on me'.
PAUL: You came.
TERESE: Thank you. It means a lot to us. We really appreciate it.
LEO: Congratulations. Sincerely.
Leo goes to help Ned 'hassle Aaron', while Paul tells Terese he thinks that they and Leo have finally turned a corner. Paul can tell that Terese is disappointed Roxy didn't show up, and offers to go and get her.
TERESE: If Roxy wanted to be here, she'd be here.
PAUL: Maybe she just needs a little encouragement, hmm? I won't be long.
Paul goes off to find Roxy.
Amy and Kyle are walking along, talking about Paul and Sheila's plans to split her up from Gary.
KYLE: So, does this change anything for you?
AMY: No. If anything, what Dad and Sheila did... it's brought up flaws that were always going to surface.
KYLE: You don't know that for sure.
AMY: I do.
KYLE: Look, I just want you to do what's right for you, okay? I won't hassle.
AMY: I know you wouldn't.
KYLE: So, what are you gonna say to your old man?
AMY: No idea. But I need to talk to Gary before I do anything else.
Sheila is confessing to Clive about her participation in Paul's plan to split up Gary and Amy. She explains that Gary and Kyle have never got on well, and fighting over Amy wasn't healthy. She didn't want Amy to resent Gary for not giving her a baby, and leave him. Clive wants to know why Sheila didn't talk to him about it; she explains Kyle was planning to leave again. She had to stop him.
CLIVE: Sheila, you cannot force people to stay with you. You're sounding like Paul.
SHEILA: And Gary will be devastated when he finds out, and he'll probably hate me. And I wouldn't blame you if you hated me, too.
CLIVE: Of course I don't hate you, Sheila. I just... I don't...
SHEILA: I'll never do it again, I promise. I will never do it again.
Clive says Sheila needs to speak to Gary; he can't hear it from anyone else. At that moment, Gary walks in, because it's 'beer o'clock'. He can tell something's wrong, and asks Sheila what it is...
Susan is all packed to go to Sydney. Dee asks if there's anything she can do while she's away.
DEE: You and Karl have been so generous; I'd really like to return the favour.
SUSAN: Oh, Dee, there's nothing to return, honestly! Having you here, it's just been... it's like a gift!
DEE: You know, when I first found out that Toadie was still alive, and I couldn't see him, the only thing that kept me going was knowing that he had you.
SUSAN: We'll always be here for him... Dee, I know I've said this before, but... please take it slowly with Toadie.
DEE: I'm not going to do anything; I promise. You don't have to worry, okay?
They hold hands. Karl comes in; there's a letter for Dee from a courier.
DEE: It's the DNA results...
Dee has taken the letter straight round to Toadie.
DEE: I can't believe it's here. I can't believe how nervous I feel, either!
TOADIE: I can. Whatever's in that could change your life.
DEE: Oh, well, when you put it like that...
Toadie suggests she could wait till she felt more ready, but...
DEE: I feel like it has to be now or never.
Dee begins to open the envelope, and Toadie's eyes widen in anticipation...
Roxy is sitting at the rotunda, feeling sorry for herself. Paul turns up, and suggests she come back to celebrate with the rest of them. Roxy isn't keen.
PAUL: Aren't you sick of just being angry all the time? Come on, we're family!
ROXY (laughs): Oh, family?! With wife number six? I mean, how can you make the same promise with six different people?!
PAUL: Alright, that's enough! Now, you're a young woman, you're not a kid. And all this sulking is getting really tiresome!
ROXY: I thought you liked younger women, though? What was her name - Courtney?
Paul decides this is a waste of time, and starts to walk away. But Roxy leaps up, declaring that his thing for younger women works for her, and kisses him on the lips...
