Yashvi points out that she has about 20 alternatives in her head where Ned isn't an idiot! Ned wanted to protect Yashvi. Yashvi is stunned that he kept the stalking information from her for so long. Ned thinks that it would have been even worse for her if Zenin discovered she had knowledge about this. Kyle explains he found out after the incident after Caden was hassled by Ned. Ned claims this wasn't the case but wanted to find out if the things were linked. Yashvi realises this was probably the reason her car broke down and connected to Zenin and the break in at the office. Ned warns her that Zenin isn't to be messed with. Ned doesn't think Ned needs this when she's starting out as a copper. Yashvi would prefer to make this decision herself!

Paul and David are sitting on the sofa. Paul is laughing at the idea of confetti canons and David agrees the idea is totally Aaron! David plans to wear a top hat and waistcoat. Since David came out it's his first Mardi Gras.
DAVID: I didn't ever think I'd be part of it, part of the community.
PAUL: I couldn't be more prouder of how far you've come.
Paul looks forward to seeing David be part of the Parade. Ned arrives home and seems distracted. He claims to be tired and tells Paul he has dealt with things. Ned heads to bed.

Terese admits that it's not so plain sailing for Chloe's new role. Paul doesn't think Chloe is the best person and waiting for her to mess up.
JANE: Waiting or orchestrating?

Elly and Chloe are now sharing a table with the mannequin inside. Chloe mentions that there is a saturated market for wedding expo. She wants her event to be the event.

PAUL: I'll stop you right there. We're business people not fairy godmothers.

Paul isn't so sure it's a done deal, Chloe admits she needs to sort things out but is nearly there. Paul thinks there's a chance it might not happen and heads off.
Kyle is still worrying over the text. Yashvi arrives home and Ned wants to know how things went. She coolly tells him that things were ok. He wants her to elaborate but she tells him she's tired. Ned tells Yashvi about the text and shows it to her. Yashvi thinks that Zenin isn't aware he's being investigated and just stop fretting about it. Yashvi is heading indoors but agrees to Ned joining her.
