- David hears Shaun saying on the phone that Elly has to trust him before he makes her do anything
- David wants to tell Elly what he heard, but Aaron thinks he should hold off a bit
- Mark tells Roxy he wants another chance so they can do things properly
- Bea is electrocuted after Scarlett sabotages her amp power lead, so Ned takes her to hospital
- Scarlett tells Yashvi what happened, but deliberately plays it down, saying there was no ambulance
- Yashvi bawls out Ned for standing her up; Ned thinks she's immature and says he wants a break
- Ned later begins to regret his decision, but Scarlett eggs him on, saying he made the right choice
Finn is with Bea, who's still laid up in bed; Bea's feeling guilty that her accident led to Yashvi and Ned falling out. Finn reminds her it isn't the first time they've argued over stuff like this; Bea thinks Yashvi doubts herself when she's around Ned.
FINN: Maybe they just need to talk more. Not everyone can communicate as well as us.
Bea suddenly get a sharp pain in her chest, and Finn shouts out for help. David quickly appears and encourages Bea to focus on her breathing. She says she feels dizzy; Finn wonders if she's having a heart attack. The pain appears to pass, but David decides to Run Some Tests™.
Scarlett and Ned are hanging out; Ned is telling Scarlett about the weirdest tattoos he's been asked to do.
SCARLETT: You are kidding. An entire sleeve of Justin Bieber lyrics?
Scarlett offers Ned another drink, but he realises it's late. He wonders if he should check in with Yashvi - but Scarlett tries to talk him out of it, saying she needs air as much as he does after their row. She invites him back here for breakfast tomorrow; he promises to think about it, and thanks her, before bidding her goodnight.
Once he's gone, Scarlett goes to sit on the couch and pulls a photo from her bag, of Kyle and Ned from Sheila's party. She begins to tear it down the middle as another memento for her creepy scrapbook, but then rushes to hide the photo as Kyle comes in - he's been unable to sleep and is just fetching some water. Scarlett puts her scrapbook away and sighs with relief as Kyle returns to bed.
Shaun and Elly have joined Bea and Finn, and David comes in with Bea's test results. He tells her she's developed a condition called atrial fibrillation - a kind of arrhythmia, where her heart beats to an abnormal rhythm.
DAVID: It's not life- threatening, and it could just be a one- off. We'll have to keep you monitored to know if it's temporary, sporadic or ongoing (...) People with a- fib have difficulty pumping blood effectively around their bodies. It can lead to a higher risk of stroke, heart failure, and other heart- related complications.
BEA: So, basically I'm just a ticking time- bomb?
DAVID: No. If it is persistent, there's plenty of medications that can help. Things like anticoagulants, beta blockers, anti- arrhythmic agents. Try not to worry. These kinds of conditions are highly manageable.
But Bea doesn't look wholly reassured.
The next morning, Kyle, Amy and Scarlett are having breakfast on the patio. Scarlett laments that it's a shame Ned didn't join them, saying he seemed 'really bummed' last night. Kyle thinks Ned and Yashvi will get through this; Scarlett says she hopes so, as she hates seeing them so down. At this moment, Aaron returns from a run. Kyle remarks that he looks 'fried'.
AARON: Seriously, bro?
KYLE: What? ... Oh, right - Bea. Yeah.
AMY: Hey, did you find that lead you were looking for? The one that caused the accident?
KYLE: Er, nope. It's weird. I've looked for it everywhere.
A shifty- looking Scarlett asks if it's really that important; Bea's recovering, which is what matters. But Aaron tells them all about the heart condition Bea's developed as a result of the shock, which she could have for the rest of her life. Scarlett looks worried.
Gary has come to collect some glasses from Sheila, for the wine- tasting event at The 82. She sends him to the storeroom to collect them.
Meanwhile, Mark and Roxy come in, hand- in- hand, and take a table for their first 'proper date', as Roxy puts it. Mark reminds her it's only breakfast. Roxy takes one look at the menu and flings it on the floor, declaring it 'boring'!
ROXY: What are you gonna have? Muesli and orange juice? Eww - you are! We're supposed to be having a good time!
To which end, Roxy clicks her fingers and demands that Sheila bring them two mimosas. Mark urges her not to shout across the bar, but Roxy insists she wants to 'treat him special'. Gary has re- emerged, and quietly remarks to Sheila that Mark must be 'shaking in his boots' being out with Roxy.
SHEILA: If he had any good sense, he'd have his runners on.
Finn and Elly are still with Bea in the hospital room, trying to reassure her. Bea can tell Finn's as freaked out as she is, as he's holding onto her hand way too tightly. She's worried about the more serious conditions her arrhythmia could trigger. Elly is clutching her bump; she seems distracted and upset, and eventually rushes out to get some air.
In the waiting area, Shaun finds Elly crying. She admits she thought she might lose Bea yesterday, and now they've been hit with more bad news.
ELLY: I hate seeing her in pain like this; I hate not knowing what's gonna happen next.
Shaun hugs Elly, and assures her everything will be alright.
ELLY: Thank you. I'm so glad you're here.
But David is watching from the other side of the room, and looks concerned.
Ned joins Scarlett, Kyle and Amy; he's heard the news about Bea's heart. Ned wants to call Elly and see if there's anything he can do, but Scarlett suggests he and her go in together and see Bea for themselves. Ned is reluctant to disturb them and Amy agrees, but Scarlett is oddly insistent, saying she really wants to check on her and suggesting they go in with a whole breakfast spread for Bea.
Ned agrees that he and Scarlett can drop by the hospital, but once they're gone, Amy remarks to Kyle that Scarlett seemed a bit pushy on the subject. Kyle says she's just being a mate, but Amy doesn't look so sure.
Roxy is beating Mark at pool, while Sheila and Gary stand there watching from the bar.
GARY: She's a pool shark, just like her aunt. You know, we should probably stop staring.
SHEILA: Someone has to make sure she doesn't set the place on fire again.
Roxy wants to attempt a shot through her leg while sitting on the table, but Mark moans that it's not allowed.
ROXY: But it's fun!
MARK: Yeah, and so is playing by the rules.
Roxy agrees to take a normal shot, but only on the grounds that if she pots the ball, Mark has to chug his mimosa. Sure enough, she pots it, and despite Mark's protestations, she insists on him chugging his drink. When he refuses, Roxy stands on a table and loudly announces that she's not getting down until Mark downs his drink.
Sheila threatens to throw Roxy out, so Mark grudgingly obeys and chugs the mimosa. Roxy gets off the table and goes over to kiss him.
GARY (to Sheila): This is brutal. It's like watching a car crash in slow motion.
Shaun fetches Elly some water. She asks him how his mum feels about him taking time off work to hang out here; Shaun shiftily says she's okay with it. Elly thanks him for sorting out the row between Finn, David and Aaron - and notes that the previous time Shaun was in town, he saw her at her worst, having been 'such a mess' and 'obsessing over Mark nonstop'.
ELLY: The fact that I went to those extremes... I should've known that we were over much sooner than when I did... What about you? Do you have anyone in your life in Switzerland?
SHAUN: Oh, no - I'm married to the job. Besides, all I'm interested in is this baby. I can't really think of anything else.
ELLY: Yeah. That's exactly how I feel.
Shaun offers to give Elly a lift home, and she agrees.
Meanwhile, Ned and Scarlett have come in to see Bea. Scarlett randomly gives Bea the biggest teddy bear in the world.
BEA: That's... that's big!
Scarlett seems overinvested, and asks Bea how serious her condition is. She explains they just have to wait and see. Bea asks about Ned's break with Yashvi; Ned says he just needed some space.
BEA: Okay. As long as you're not running away from your problems.
NED: Well, I'm not happy with where we're at - but what can I do?
BEA: Well, you could start by talking to her.
SCARLETT: You should probably work out what you want to say first, so you're not sending mixed signals.
BEA: He wants to work it out.
SCARLETT: Yeah, of course. I just reckon it's best if you can work out what went wrong in the first place, you know?
Bea doesn't seem all too impressed with Scarlett's interventions, and asks Ned what he thinks. But before they can talk much further about it, Scarlett announces that she and Ned should go and let Bea get some rest. Once they're gone...
BEA: Is it just me, or is it really odd that Scarlett got me this big bear? I don't even know her.
FINN: She's new in town. Maybe she's just... trying to be nice.
But Bea doesn't look convinced.
Elly and Shaun come in; the tone between them is light and borderline- flirtatious, as Shaun makes it clear he wants to look after Elly while she's here. She admits she's had a difficult time of the pregnancy so far, saying there was a time she wasn't sure she would even have the baby - she explains about her miscarriage a few years ago, saying she was terrified it would happen again.
ELLY: But I'm luckier than most. Even though my pregnancy didn't start out very normal, I feel very grateful to be having this baby. And now I've turned into a blabbermouth!
SHAUN: I don't mind.
ELLY: It's your fault; you're too easy to talk to.
SHAUN: So are you... In fact, there are probably some things we should talk through, while I'm here. About the baby, and our future.
ELLY: Oh, yeah?
SHAUN: ... But there's... there's no rush. You know, I'm here for another week or so. Let's get Bea home safe and sound first.
ELLY: Yeah, okay. Thank you.
Shaun gets a text from his mum, asking, 'have you done it yet?' Noticing he looks concerned, Elly asks if everything's okay. Shaun insists it's fine, and goes to grab them some food.
Roxy goes to the bar to ask Sheila for more mimosas. Sheila is unwilling, reminding Roxy that she's an employee here, not a table- top dancer.
ROXY: I am creating a vibe.
SHEILA: Oh, more like killing one. Have you had a look at lover boy's face? He's had a gutful.
Sure enough, Mark has a face like thunder.
ROXY: He loves my shtick.
SHEILA: He does not!
ROXY: Then how come he came running back to mine, begging me to take him back?
SHEILA: Because he's a sucker, and I learnt that when he was swinging hands with your cousin Paige.
ROXY: Uncle Brad's daughter?
SHEILA: Mm, that's the one. Like chalk and cheese, they were - until it all finally went south.
ROXY: That's not gonna happen with us.
SHEILA: Well, opposites may attract, love - but eventually, something has to give. And it's not gonna be one of my tables!
Meanwhile, Mark is apologising to Gary, who is still lingering around, for the 'commotion' before, saying Roxy doesn't mean to cause trouble. Gary isn't convinced; he reckons Roxy can't help herself.
MARK: She's not that bad.
GARY: Yeah, until she eats you alive.
MARK: Well, I'm having fun.
GARY: Yeah? Well, if that's true, good luck to ya. But I don't reckon I'd be game.
Gary saunters off, leaving Mark looking thoughtful.
Kyle is playing a video game, and Amy comes to join him. She reckons the house looks less messy than usual; Kyle attributes this to Scarlett's influence, and says she's 'easy enough' to live with. Kyle goes to make a cuppa, dropping his controller as he goes. Amy reaches down to get it, but finds the picture of Ned and Kyle that Scarlett was in the process of tearing when Kyle came in last night.
Amy shows the photo to Kyle, who recognises it as having been taken at Sheila's party.
AMY: Scarlett must've taken it. Why would she print out a photo of you and Ned?
KYLE: Why would she print out a photo at all? It's 2019.
AMY: It looks like she was trying to rip Ned out of it... Oh, wow. I think somebody has a crush on you.
KYLE: Probably. I am hot stuff! Look, there's got to be some normal explanation for this. And even if there isn't, it doesn't matter. I only have eyes for you.
Kyle kisses Amy, but she looks disconcerted.
Aaron and David are at a table, and Elly has stopped to chat to them. She's talking about Shaun and the mystery text he got before, which seemed to make him take off. Elly adds that Shaun was trying to talk to her about the future, and she feels like she shut him down - so maybe that's what caused him to leave.
Aaron reveals a 'crazy theory' - maybe Shaun wants to be More Than Friends™ with Elly. It all makes sense; he's liked her in the past, and has been doing a lot of sucking up since he returned. David looks concerned, and suggests maybe Shaun has something else going on; Elly should ask him. Aaron gives David a look, but Elly says she'll have to do that, and heads home to put her feet up.
AARON: What was that about?
DAVID: I really think something's off about Shaun. And you should've seen the way Elly was relying on him at the hospital. I don't want her to get hurt.
AARON: Yeah, who says she will? You're still worried about that phone call, aren't you?
DAVID: And the papers thing.
AARON: Like I said, there could be a million different explanations for what you saw, yeah? Until you know more, Boo, you have to let this go.
Scarlett comes in and makes a fuss of her heavy shopping, leading Kyle to rush over and help her, which immediately gets Amy's back up. Kyle is gratified to learn Scarlett has bought his favourite cereal, and the fava beans he likes.
KYLE: I thought you didn't like these?
SCARLETT: Which shows why I'm such a nice person.
Amy looks worried as a grateful Kyle loads up on cereal.
Roxy and a subdued Mark arrive back at the house. Roxy asks what now; Mark just wants to watch TV.
ROXY: You sound grumpy.
MARK: I'm just tired.
ROXY: It was the date, wasn't it? You hated it.
MARK: I didn't say that.
ROXY: Yeah, you didn't have to. I don't get it - I looked hot, I cracked some winning jokes... What went wrong?
MARK: Nothing. I just - I just didn't think it was going to be such a spectacle, going out with you.
ROXY: I was just trying to make us have some fun.
MARK: By making me chug a drink in front of a group of strangers?
ROXY: Yeah. I mean - you needed loosening up!
MARK: What I needed was a drink that wasn't flammable. And some normal conversation.
ROXY: Yeah. You weren't talking.
MARK: Well, I do remember saying some things. Like, 'stop yelling at Sheila', and, 'get down off the table'. Not everything has to be wild and crazy, Roxy.
ROXY: No. So, you want me to tone it down a bit?
MARK: Don't take it like that. I'm just saying that I might've had a better time if you weren't climbing the furniture.
Shaun is working at the table, when Aaron and David turn up, wanting to check in on Elly. She's in the garden, so Shaun goes to fetch her. While he's gone, David spots the suspicious envelope he was hiding the other day, and rushes to take a peek at it.
AARON: No, you can't do this, David.
DAVID: Why not? It's practically falling out of his satchel!
But just as David's reading the contents of the envelope, Shaun returns with Elly.
DAVID (to Elly): I think you need to see this.
SHAUN: No, please, don't.
But it's too late; David passes the papers to Elly, who reads them. She turns to Shaun.
ELLY: You want custody of my baby?!
