Scarlett is sitting in the living room staring at a creepy book which contains a lot of photos of Ned. He walks in which startles her and she closes the book immediately. He tells her he has to go and she insists that she'll be fine on her own. After he's gone, she looks annoyed that he's left.
Pierce and Hendrix are sitting in The Waterhole. Hendrix tells his dad that he doesn't want to tag along while he's working.
HENDRIX: Just cause I'm suspended doesn't mean I need babysitting. I can stay at home, do school work.
PIERCE: Or play FIFA all day.
Roxy walks past and Pierce asks if everything's on track for the press conference.
ROXY: Food's laid out, drinks are chilled and you should too.
Roxy tells him not to check up on her every five minutes as everything's going according to plan but he says that today's a big day for them. Hendrix jokes that maybe he will stick around when he sees a box full of alcohol on the table, but Pierce says it's needed for the announcement of the Lassiters partnership with the Melbourne Cup later.
ROXY: Lassiters is getting its own fancy- pants marquee at the races.
There's friction when Pierce tells Hendrix he won't be going to the races, before Pierce heads off to the bar. Roxy then makes fun of Hendrix for being treated like a child.
Finn and Toadie are talking about the support group for domestic violence survivors as Bea walks in and she's surprised that it's already starting.
FINN: Rebecca Napier helped kick things along.
TOADIE: The program Rebecca devised is really great. It's all about re- building the victims independence.
BEA: Oh, that could be good for Scarlett.
TOADIE: Yeah, actually.
Bea thinks the group could stop Scarlett from being so dependent on Ned and asks if there are any flyers she could drop round to her. Finn looks concerned and suggests that he is the one to tell her about it. Bea replies that she's keen to do anything to help Scarlett move on with her life.
Amy asks Scarlett if she had a friend over last night, just as Kyle walks in. She tells them it was Ned and it feels awkward for a moment.
ROXY: Hey! You were out late last night. Have you got any tea to spill?
NED: No, I just caught up with a friend.
ROXY: (laughs) Yeah, and exactly what parts of you got caught up. I saw you skulking back in.
NED: Ok, look, I hooked up with Scarlett but you've got to keep that to yourself.
Roxy looks shocked and he says he knows he screwed up.
Scarlett tells Amy and Kyle that it's early days between her and Ned and she doesn't want to hurt Yashvi, so they agree to keep it to themselves. After Scarlett leaves the room, Kyle says that he thought Ned was going to back off when he realized Scarlett had a crush on him, but Amy replies that relationships are complicated.
KYLE: All aboard the rebound train.
Ned tells Roxy he's made a mistake; he's still not over Vi. She advises him to go and tell Scarlett where she stands.
The Waterhole (exterior)
Pierce has taken Hendrix outside to show him some wines that he created but his son just seems disinterested. Pierce talks about how hard it was to get some of his wines off the ground.
HENDRIX: Seriously, I'm not in the mood for whatever this is.
PIERCE: That's a shame, because I was hoping, that when I retire, I could pass on the winery to you and your sister.
Pierce explains that's why he's brought Hendrix here; to learn about his inheritance.
Yashvi tells Harlow that she's glad to be going back to school as at least Ned won't be there; or Scarlett. Harlow replies that Hendrix won't be there either so it will be a peaceful day for both of them! Bea approaches and asks Yashvi if she's heard from Ned. Bea also mentions the support group that Scarlett could attend which might stop her spending so much time with him. Before long Scarlett herself appears, saying she has something to tell Yashvi.
SCARLETT: I know there's been a lot of tension between us because of Ned, which I have hated by the way.
YASHVI: Just spit it out, Scarlett.
SCARLETT: We slept together last night.
Scarlett apologises and says that she and Ned couldn't fight their feelings any longer.
BEA: Scarlett, I think you've said enough.
Scarlett walks inside and Bea holds Yashvi's hand.
The Waterhole (exterior)
Pierce is showing Hendrix some pictures of one of his vineyards.
HENDRIX: So you won't trust me in your Melbourne Cup marquee but you'd hand me your winery?
PIERCE: Well, I'm not exactly about to retire tomorrow.
Pierce tells Hendrix he'll have to step up if he wants to be involved in future.
PIERCE: I'm giving you a choice. I can't force you to take an interest. That's up to you.
Pierce asks Hendrix to smell the different ingredients used to make the various types of wines. He then smells a finished wine.
PIERCE: What do you get?
PIERCE: Not bad. It's a 2014 pinot noir. It has a perfumed nose and a rich cherry flavour. You called it.
HENDRIX: What can I say? I'm a savant.
They engage in some father- son banter.
Scarlett greets Ned in The Waterhole with some lunch she's brought for him.
SCARLETT: Last night was amazing.
NED: Yeah. Yeah, look I'm just not sure...
SCARLETT: Yeah, I was gonna say, I'm just not sure...
Scarlett U- turns when she sees what Ned is thinking.
SCARLETT: You're so important to me. And I don't want to mess with that for the sake of one night.
They agree to be friends and she says they can still hang out whenever. Ned offers to walk her home in case Rex is hanging around but she insists on getting an uber. After he leaves, she looks in his direction longingly, clearly very upset that he regrets their night together.
Yashvi sobs as she tells her parents about Ned and Scarlett. She can't believe that he's done this to her.
DIPI: Are you sure you don't wanna go to school? Try to forget about it for the day?
YASHVI: Like I could...
She storms out. Her mother follows her. Toadie tells Shane that losing his temper with Ned won't solve anything but Shane replies that it'd make him feel a lot better. Bea sticks up for Ned, saying he probably feels really bad.
TOADIE: He straight up said to my face that he and Scarlett were just friends. So lets face it, he's just not the person we thought he was.
Pierce and Hendrix are still discussing wine. Pierce asks him if he has any questions about the process.
HENDRIX: Ok, um, why screw cap and not cork?
Before he can answer, Pierce receives a phone call from Chloe. He apologises to his son, saying that he has to answer as Chloe's going through a rough time at the moment. Pierce answers the phone.
PIERCE: No, no, it's not a bad time at all.
Hendrix looks annoyed, before he sees Pierce's car keys on the table and grabs them. He then looks conflicted.
BEA: Ned, so how long has this been going on for? And don't lie to me...
Bea tells him that she just came and told her and Yashvi about him spending the night with her last night. He worries about Yashvi who Bea says is of course devastated. Bea doesn't seem to believe that last night was a one- off despite Ned's protestations and he insists that he and Scarlett are just friends. He says he's going to talk to Yashvi about it.
BEA: I think you should be careful with Scarlett. You know what happened with her and her family...
He appears to be in the dark.
BEA: She didn't tell you about her family and the car crash? She was the only survivor...
Ned can't see what that has to do with him and Yashvi and asks Bea to stay out of it.
Scarlett looks at photos of Ned she took of him in the shower before Amy and Kyle walk in. They say Finn has come to see her. He asks if she's heard any more from her ex but she hasn't. Amy and Kyle say they should all stay on guard seeing as the cops still haven't found him and they've drawn up a roster so Scarlett doesn't have to spend time alone. Finn hands her a flyer for the domestic violence survivor support group. Initially she is reluctant to go but Amy offers to accompany her and Kyle's encouragement forces her hand so she agrees to go. She gets her bag and while they're alone Kyle commends Amy for offering to go with Scarlett, before asking if she needs to talk to anyone about 'camera- gate'. She says she's keen to just leave it in the past.
Hendrix pulls up in Pierce's car outside Grease Monkeys, where Harlow is sitting, drinking a milkshake. She comments that he doesn't even have a license and his dad will kill him when he finds out he's taken his car. Hendrix asks how school was.
HARLOW: All the better with your absence.
HENDRIX: But did your heart grow fonder?
HARLOW: Unsurprisingly it didn't.
Harlow continues to make jibes at Hendrix.
HENDRIX: This would be so much easier if you admitted you want me.
HARLOW: Yeah, well, I really don't so...
HENDRIX: Except we keep ending up here.
HARLOW: Yeah, arguing. Maybe because I'm the only person who calls you out on your juvenile behaviour.
Hendrix invites her for a joyride telling her to live a little, but she replies that he won't be living much longer when his dad catches him. Hendrix says his dad has no interest in him and this will be no different.
Harold's Cafe (exterior)
Roxy bumps into Ned on the Lassiters Complex. He says the marquee looks great and jokes that Chloe might not have an EA job to come back to, but Roxy says she's welcome to it as being Pierce's 'lap dog' isn't any fun. She asks how things went with Scarlett and he says that she's ok just to be friends. Shane and Dipi exit Harold's and she tries to stop him from accosting Ned, telling him it's not his battle to fight. Just as he addresses Ned, Yashvi arrives, also ready to give him a serve.
NED: Vi, I was gonna tell you.
YASHVI: What? That you have been sleeping with her and you got off on lying to me?
NED: I never lied.
YASHVI: I saw you with her and you made me doubt myself! This whole time you've been creeping behind my back!
NED: Nothing happened before last night.
YASHVI: Stop lying to me! You're weak and pathetic and I just wish I'd known from the start.
She storms off and Dipi goes after her. Shane glares at Ned.
As they leave the community centre, Amy tells Scarlett that she was quiet in the group session. Scarlett replies that she doesn't think her experience was a big deal compared to the other people who attended. Ned walks past and Scarlett asks if he's ok. He says that he's just had an argument with Yashvi on the complex and Amy asks if it was about last night. He looks shocked that she knows and asks Scarlett if she's told everyone. Amy says she heard him leaving this morning and Scarlett says she bumped into Yashvi and is a terrible liar so the truth just came out. She offers to accompany Ned for a walk to calm him down and Amy begins to look suspicious.
Things are about to get started at the marquee but Pierce is still hassling Roxy about things not being prepared properly; the mic isn't in the stand and she's brought out the wrong wine. She promises to get everything sorted and tells him to relax. Harlow arrives and Roxy asks her if she can go and grab the mic as she's busy changing the wine. Of course Harlow doesn't want to initially, but Roxy's desperation gets the better of her and she looks for the mic. Meanwhile, Hendrix is driving past and accidentally spills a drink on him which causes him to lose control of the vehicle. He crashes into the marquee as Pierce watches in shock. Roxy drops her tray of wine.
