- Bea telling Yashvi the deal she did with Alfie.
- Yashvi deciding to go after Alfie breaking into the Kennedy house... only to smack Susan instead with Karl's guitar!
- Susan lying unconscious on the floor.
Yashvi is bombarded with questions when Karl, Elly, Bea and Finn arrive at the hospital. She does her best to explain that Susan was unconscious for a couple of minutes and the ambos reckon she has a concussion. They demand to know why she was in the house and unfortunately, she has to drop Bea in it by explaining that Alfie was going to break into the house (while doing a live stream) while everyone was at the festival.
YASHVI: The front door was open, so I thought it was him trying to break in.
"Why didn't you tell me about this?" Bea demands and she explains about her not wanting Bea to miss her ?rst big gig... which she will do unless she gets her finger out! Karl is refusing to let anyone leave until he hears the full story!

Looking at the line- up, Amy tells Gary that she is excited to see Hanson play after a mis- hap in her childhood (she ended up at the back of the stage missing them). They run into Toadie (and Hugo with his cute blue protective headphones) briefly and afterwards, Gary is glad he's not tied down taking a kid to a festival.
Yashvi is explaining things to her parents and how Alfie came to feature in their lives. "I cannot believe you tried to profit off other people's trauma with this tour," Shane lambasts her with despite her apology.
SHANE: I just don't recognise you, Vi. This isn't the woman we raised.
Ned defends his girlfriend by telling Shane "that's a bit rough" and that "she's not the first person to make a mistake." This goes down like a lead balloon and Ned is told to "mind your own business." But he again defends Yashvi by declaring that "she is my business."
NED: And, yes, the tour and trying to stop Alfie like that, not her best ideas, but the woman you raised, she likes to push the boundaries. That's what's so great about her. I just don't think biting her head off's going to help.
SHANE: (to Dipi) Is this idiot trying to tell me how to speak to my own daughter?
Trying to defuse the tense situation, Dipi tells everyone to cool off before dragging Shane out of the kitchen.
Dallas Frasca entertains the crowd, but Amy is ignoring her, instead counting down the minutes (and the performers) until Hanson are up. Gary throws a spanner in the works by announcing he's arranged a meeting with a group at the same time that he thinks could do for their wedding. "Well, you better reschedule that then," Kyle tells his dad and while initially Gary was going to go alone, Amy confirms she will be there too.
Karl returns with an update on Susan - she's being taken for a CT scan as they are concerned about a brain bleed. He (and Elly) aren't happy at not being told what was going on especially after they agreed on "no more secrets. "Everything just snowballed," Finn tries to explain, and Bea apologises on their behalf
KARL: I'm not sure that's good enough.
He then heads off to radiology and Elly goes to update her mum on what is happening. Bea then gets a reminder that its "40 minutes till showtime" but is reluctant to leave the hospital until they know Susan's okay.

The Living End are next to entertain the gathered with 'Wake up the vampires.'
At the wine station, Amy gets clucky over a baby in the arms of someone standing next to her. Pierce describes to her his baby - "a little Pinot Gris" which he has poured his "heart and soul into." Amy enquires if he has ever thought of having a family and his reply is a nonchalant "I guess" but she can see that he's put career ahead of family. "You want more kids?" he asks, and she replies that she's thought about it but Gary and herself have decided to have no more kids so they can "enjoy what we have right now."
PIERCE: So, you're just settling?
AMY: Why are you saying this?
PIERCE: No reason. Just... I'm sure Gary's a stand- up guy. I know his son is.
AMY: Yeah, Kyle, he really knows how to let a girl down easy.
PIERCE: Seems like a top bloke to me.
AMY: Well, Gary is my fiancé and Kyle's not actually an option, so before you say that I'm settling...
PIERCE: Kyle is an option. Okay? He told me. He's still in love with you.

Next to entertain the crowd is Cavalcade with 'Twisted paradise.'
Again, Amy isn't paying any attention to the artist though because she is pushing past the crowds in tears, hotly pursued by Gary. "Where you going?" he asks but she replies that she can't talk right now. Eventually he forces her to stop and she explains that she needs to find Kyle because its important.
GARY: What's wrong?
AMY: I can't talk to you about this.
GARY: Yeah, of course you can.
AMY: No! Gary, just please!
GARY: No, no, no, wait, Ames, you don't... You're upset, there's no way you're just going to fog me off.
AMY: Kyle... He lied to me, okay? He said that he didn't love me, and... I just found out that it's not true.
GARY: Right. And... okay.
AMY: Uh... I'm angry because he lied. I'm not angry because he has feelings for me. I don't care about that.
GARY: Oh, God, babe. You're still in love with him.
AMY: Gary, no.
Despite what Amy said, the realisation hits Gary like a ton of bricks that she does, so he nonchalantly says "that's good to know" before walking off, ignoring Amy calling his name out... and getting rather annoyed looks from the silent fans he pushes out of the way!
The lyrics of Cavalcade's song seem quite apt at this point - "I've never felt so hopeless, stuck in the same circle, stuck in this endless circle..."
Yashvi gets an update from Elly - Susan doesn't have a brain bleed, its just concussion as the ambos initially thought. Ned thinks he stuffed up with Shane earlier but Yashvi thinks it was great because "no- one's ever stood up for me like that before."
NED: Yeah, but I crossed a line.
YASHVI: Well, yeah, he's got a whole thing about disrespect. And once you've crossed that line, you're doneskis.
Pierce and Terese run into each other as they fight their way through the crowd - she is desperately searching for Bea (who isn't answering her phone) fearful that if she doesn't turn up soon, she will need to find a last minute replacement!
Karl informs his wife that she is being kept in overnight as a precaution but hopefully should get home tomorrow. He asks how her headache is (likening it to a dull roar) before lamenting that his guitar's ruined.
SUSAN: Oh, well, you see? There's always a silver lining.
Susan doesn't look too keen to see Bea and Finn (they are desperate to see her) and while she gets, they were trying to protect each other, adds that "this is not good. It's only been a few weeks and Bea's already covering for him." Karl agrees that he doesn't "like seeing these same patterns of behaviour repeating themselves, even if Finn is different."
KARL: She's just desperate to prove she made the right decision with him.
SUSAN: Which is why they need to know that dishonesty is not on.
Karl agrees and leaves her to go outside and talk to the pair. Immediately they ask how Susan is and if they can go inside and see her. Karl explains that while there is no lasting damage, Susan needs to rest.
FINN: I feel so awful.
BEA: Yeah. We didn't mean for any of this to happen.
KARL: Of course you didn't, but your actions caused it. If you want to continue living at our house, this can't stay hidden. The police need to know everything.
Bea is aghast at that happening, but Karl's mind isn't for changing as "Alfie's clearly dangerous."
BEA: If we involve the police, Alfie will say that Finn assaulted him, and it'll be his word against Finn's.
KARL: No, no, no! Not negotiable. The man broke into our house. Now, neither of you have done anything wrong. The police will sort out the truth.

Next up on the main stage is Crystal Cities performing 'Could you love me again.'
Gary spots his son walking through the crowd with Terese and tells him that they need to talk. However, before Kyle can say anything, Terese tells Gary that "Amy's going to love you" and explains to him about the "VIP concert."
TERESE: Kyle told me that you're going to miss the Hanson set, so I pulled a few strings and I've organised an exclusive session for you and Amy before they go on stage.
KYLE: Yeah, now Amy can make Hanson and the meeting you set up.
Gary is told to get Amy to meet him outside Harold's as Dipi is closing early. "Thank you," he sincerely replies before she heads off allowing father and son to chat.
GARY: You knew she loved them, didn't you?
KYLE: Ah, she used to play their album nonstop when we worked together.
GARY: Should've seen it.
KYLE: What? That Amy's a die- hard Hanson fan?
GARY: No, mate. How much you still care about her.
As Gary said that last sentence, he put his hand round Kyle's head, almost as if he was acknowledging that he has lost Amy to his son.
Finn has decided that he is going to talk to the police about Alfie but turns down Bea's offer to go with him as she's got to go to the festival and if she doesn't leave in the next 30 seconds, she's going to miss her set! "No, it doesn't matter, Finn," she replies but he is adamant she goes as "there are loads of important music people wandering around Erinsborough tonight" and "this could be your big break." She is still reluctant to let him go alone in case "something happens with the police."
FINN: If you don't get on that stage, you'll regret it for the rest of your life.
BEA: But what about you?
FINN: I'll...see you back at home tonight where we can discuss you buying me a new pair of glasses.
This time we have a deal and before she leaves, he tells her to "be amazing."
A change of venue for the next group - Tenderfoot as they play 'Life's not perfect.'
Amy arrives to meet Gary having got his text to be told that he's "cancelled our meeting with the band."
GARY: Because there's not going to be a wedding.
AMY: Gary, I'm... I'm sorry. I was upset before, but I'm over it now.
GARY: No, we both know that that's not true. You're in love with Kyle and... You're trying to force yourself not to be.
AMY: No, no. I want to be with you. I chose you.
GARY: You chose wrong.
AMY: That's not your decision.
GARY: Amy, I can't give you what you want. Anyone can see that you were made to be a mum again, but you're going to sacrifice all that for me? Maybe if I was younger, richer...
AMY: Stop, stop!
GARY: But Kyle is the one. Not me.
(both are in tears by this point)
AMY: So that's it? You're just... You're just going to walk away now?
GARY: No, Amy. I would marry you in a heartbeat, but I just love you too much to let you settle for anything less than what you really want.
Amy slowly takes off her engagement ring and hands it back to Gary, who takes it somewhat reluctantly after he told her to keep it.
AMY: What now?
GARY: Just...go and find him.
Gary watches on as Amy walks away and enters Harold's...
...where she gets the shock of her life when she comes face to face with her musical crush - Hanson! She still looks shell- shocked as they personally introduce each other to her.
AMY: I'm... I'm dead. I don't know, I think...
ZAC: Don't die... we don't know CPR or anything like that!
Taylor explains that since they've heard she's a massive fan and couldn't make the show, they "thought we'd bring music to you." The group starts playing and Amy correctly says its 'Penny and me' (thank you Amy, saves me having to Shazam it!) which they've heard is her favourite song (but not saying who told them!) and is told to take a seat and listen.
As Hanson start playing the song, someone comes into Harold's - Kyle and he sits down next to her. "How you doing?" he asks, and she gives a non- descript reply of "how do you reckon?
AMY: My whole life exploded in the last hour, and...my ultimate crushes are here to witness it.
KYLE: I'm sorry.
AMY: For what part?
KYLE: Lying to you. Letting you go.
AMY: I really shouldn't let you off the hook right now.
KYLE: But you're going to, yeah?
AMY: I love this song.
"I know," Kyle replies and then pulls Amy to her feet to dance but not before planting a tender kiss on her forehead first.

Saving the best until last, albeit one cutting it fine, the last act gets up on stage to woo the crowd - Bea singing 'Never be the one.'
As Bea sings away, the song doubles as music montage time - Karl coming into Susan's room at the hospital as she sleeps, a very happy Kyle and Amy dancing in Harold's, Sheila arriving home and seeing her son throw the engagement ring Amy gave him back into the bin, a concerned Karl watching over a sleeping Susan, Sheila retrieving the engagement ring from the bin, Finn making his way to the police station, Shane not too happy to see Yashvi pashing Ned at the festival and we end it with Finn making his way into the police station.
Mark comes back into the interview room to inform Finn that his boss is going through his statement now. Finn mentions that Bea will be here once her set finishes to give her statement. He admits that it "feels good to have it off my chest" before asking what the "next steps will be?" Mark explains that he will talk to Alfie and his medical team but then drops the bombshell - as he has "admitted to aggression towards Mr Sutton" it violates the strict parole conditions.
FINN: I came forward voluntarily. He's the one who broke into the house.
Finn is starting to feel somewhat claustrophobic and asks Mark if he can get out and come back tomorrow.
MARK: Afraid not. You'll be detained tonight.
FINN: Am I under arrest?
MARK: You'll be held in custody while your case is under review.
