- Bea and Finn finding out about Yashvi's 'Finn tour'
- Finn and Bea deciding to start a relationship
- Aaron encouraging Chloe and Elly to have a massage together
- Elly dreaming about kissing Chloe then feeling rattled by the dream
Elly has trouble relaxing after her dream and cuts the massage session short. She apologises to the masseurs then tells Chloe to finish her massage and see herself out. Elly takes a moment in the corridor alone to collect her thoughts, unsure what to make of her subconscious mind.
Bea and Finn have a secret make out session but are frustrated keeping their romance under wraps. Finn wonders whether they should just come clean with their relationship but Bea still wants to keep things quiet for a while longer, wary of backlash. Yashvi interrupts them and assumes they're acting weirdly because of how tense things were between them about the 'dark tour'. Bea and Finn tell her everything's fine and reassure her they won't blab to Ned about the tour. Once Yashvi leaves, Bea gets the idea of taking Finn on a date outside of Erinsborough where they're less likely to be seen.
Mark bumps into Chloe and says that Aaron told him about the massage. Chloe starts to blurt out her confusion over Elly cutting the session short, then realises it's probably the last thing her brother wants to hear. Mark takes the high road, however, and says although it's weird he's fine with hearing about Elly. He guesses Elly bailed because the baby might have been giving her grief - or quite possibly because she found confirmation of their annulment in the post. This makes perfect sense to Chloe and she believes Elly's not ready to pursue their friendship again just yet.
Yashvi hangs out with Ned while he unpacks luggage from a guest's car. She feels guilty when he praises her for earning money on what he still thinks was a street art tour. Yashvi says she wants to use the cash to splurge on a hotel room for the two of them. Ned's surprised and asks if she's sure; he doesn't want her to feel like she has to rush into anything. But Yashvi says she's extremely keen to spend the night with him and gives him a kiss before rushing into the hotel foyer.
Pierce overhears Yashvi making her booking and tells the concierge to give Yashvi mates rates since she's a friend of Chloe's. Yashvi thanks him and uses the opportunity to talk up Chloe's wonderful traits to Pierce and remind him that, "she's single for now but she won't be for long." Pierce mulls this over.
Elly tells Bea she looks nice but Bea brushes it off as nothing (hiding the picnic basket she was carrying). Bea asks if her sister's settling back in okay and Elly says she had a massage with Chloe. Bea's surprised they're hanging out again but Elly says Aaron was the optimistic one who arranged everything. Still feeling rattled, Elly can't help disclosing her dream to Bea - leaving out whom it was about but insinuating it was a raunchy one. Bea says that sometimes worries worm their way into your mind while you're asleep and asks Elly if she's holding onto any secrets. Elly says no, not anymore, so Bea says it might just boil down to the fact that, deep down, Elly's attracted to this person. Bea leaves, sneaking the picnic basket out with her, while Elly digests Bea's theory.
Yashvi works up the nerve to tell Dipi that she's spending the night with Ned. Dipi is taken back by the sudden admission but surprisingly calm at the same time.
DIPI: Is that at his house?
YASHVI: At Lassiters.
DIPI: That's fancy. My first time was in the back of an old, rusty hatchback.
Dipi says she's glad Yashvi waited until she was with a boy that meant a lot to her, but advises her that the first time is generally not all that great.
DIPI: I mean, how good were you at making a latte the first time you used a coffee machine?
YASHVI: It's not like steaming milk, mum.
They have a conversation about using protection even though Yashvi's on the pill, but Yashvi says she knows all of this: "I'm ready and I trust him." Overwhelmed, Dipi hugs her daughter and wonders when she turned into such a mature young woman.
DIPI: Where did my bush- bashing little arsonist go?
YASHVI: You want her back?
DIPI: No, no I don't.
YASHVI: (smiling) Thanks, mum. This wasn't as painful as I expected it to be.
Grateful, Yashvi gives her mum another quick hug.
Bea's thrilled that her and Finn are out and about, holding hands and acting like a couple. But Finn's concerned people will still recognise him, especially after the whole Alfie ordeal. He's been so worried about what the locals think of him he hadn't put much thought into the outside world. To make him feel better, Bea jokingly pops her sunnies on his face like the celebs do when they want to go incognito (welcome to the Elissa and Heather disguise club, Finn). Bea smiles and says today they can be whoever they want to be.
Elly wasn't expecting Mark of all people to rock up on her doorstep, but Mark admits he wanted to avoid the random, awkward 'first sighting of one another out in public' thing. Elly admits things are still going to be awkward between them regardless, but Mark says she doesn't need to extend that awkwardness to his family. Elly thinks he means Aaron, but Mark mentions his chat with Chloe earlier.
MARK: You and Chloe were mates. And if you want to continue hanging out I just want you to know that I'm okay about it.
He looks slightly not okay while he's saying it, but he's still trying to push through. Elly takes this on board.
Yashvi's in a happy mood when she tells Ned she booked the room, but becomes worried when he doesn't look as enthused as he was earlier. It turns out Ned's just really nervous because it's Yashvi's first time sleeping with someone and he's feeling the pressure to make it memorable.
NED: Everyone remembers their first time and sometimes it can turn into a horror story... One that you still tell your mates about years later.
YASHVI: (smirking) Well if you don't want that to happen you better put in an elite performance. (Ned looks alarmed and Yashvi laughs) I'm only kidding. I don't have big expectations. In fact, everyone's basically drilled that into me. 'First time never good. Don't get your hopes up'.
NED: (wary) Who have you spoken to?
YASHVI: Didn't you see my tweet about it?
Yashvi says they just need to have fun like they usually do and not worry about it. Ned agrees and gives her a kiss, telling her he'll see her in a few hours.
NED: I will bring the champagne.
YASHVI: I'll bring the handcuffs!
NED: Not funny.
Bea and Finn are enjoying their picnic on a dock by the river. They're chatting about different personas to take on. Bea isn't impressed by Finn's choice of Han Solo, so they eventually decide on being an up- and- coming country singer and a manager. They jokingly role- play a scenario until Finn says something about Bea not changing her hair, which triggers a flashback for Bea of 'Patrick' saying the exact same thing to her. Disturbed by this, Bea falls quiet and tells Finn she needs the bathroom leaving Finn confused about the change in her mood.
Shane tells Dipi in 'code' that they need to get some cockroach repellent for the storeroom. So Dipi takes inspiration from this to use coded language to let Shane know about Yashvi's plans for the evening since Kirsha's in earshot. Kirsha's savvier than her dad, though, and ends up spelling it out for him when the message isn't getting through.
KIRSHA: Yashvi's spending the night with Ned and they're probably going to do it.
DIPI: Thanks, big ears.
SHANE: ... Uh, not sure what you want me to do with that information, love.
DIPI: Well there's nothing to do except trust that we've raised an emotionally intelligent woman who can look after herself.
Shane paints on a smile, giggling nervously when Kirsha looks at him.
Bea returns to Finn and tells him about the memory he triggered. She says it spooked her but she's all right now. Finn feels awful but Bea admits it's bound to happen from time to time.
FINN: And you're okay with that?
BEA: Well we have history, and we certainly can't ignore it. But this is a brand new relationship and you're a completely different person. And so am I. I'm never going to let any of that old stuff happen again.
FINN: Just promise me you'll let me know if I ever say anything or do anything that might remind you of that time.
Bea says she will and gives him a small smile, but still looks a tad uneasy.
Elly ends up confessing to Chloe about the dream she had. She says she bolted because it felt really confronting after everything they've been through, then her subconscious mind kept telling her it meant something leaving her even more confused. Chloe takes it in her stride and smiles, sharing a laugh with Elly.
CHLOE: People have sexy dreams all the time! Don't read too much into it.
ELLY: Are you sure? Does this mean we can still hang out?
CHLOE: Yes, I would love to.
Chloe remains cool and casual right up until Elly leaves, then a look of intrigue passes over her face. That was the last thing she expected to hear from Elly.
Shane sees Yashvi packing an overnight bag. He offers to make her a sandwich, which then turns into this big, rambling analogy where he's going on about food but really talking about Yashvi staying safe and not going through with anything she's not ready for. It doesn't take long for Yashvi to realise Dipi told Shane about her plans with Ned.
SHANE: You'd prefer I didn't know?
YASHVI: Uh, it's not that it's just...
SHANE: Just it's a bit hard for a father and daughter to talk about, isn't it? I know, I just didn't know how to bring it up. Whether to talk about it.
YASHVI: Well, now that you have, have you got anything to say about it?
SHANE: I just wish you hadn't grown up so quick.
Chloe has just sat down out the front of the pub with a glass of wine when Pierce joins her. Instead of being happy to see him like she usually is, she's quiet and a bit awkward around him after her chat with Elly. And when Pierce finally asks her out for a drink like she'd once been hoping, Chloe gives him the brush off and says she'll get back to him. Pierce is left with Chloe's abandoned glass of wine and a head full of confusion.
Yashvi's nervous while she waits for Ned to arrive. She tries to find a comfortable yet casual way to sit on the bed.
Bea tells Finn to stop apologising for what happened earlier, but Finn's worried he ruined their first date. They sit out the front of Grease Monkeys and Bea tells him that if it makes him feel any better, it wasn't actually their first date, "not for me anyway." She then says there's going to be lots of firsts for him that will be 'seconds' for her. They take the risk of sharing a kiss, just as Ned emerges from the new bottle shop next door. Gobsmacked, Ned drops the bottle of champers he was holding when he sees them kissing. Finn and Bea break apart when they hear the smash, alarmed when they realised who has sprung them. Awkwardness and tension abounds.
