Chloe stomps over the Pierce and Naomi's table and demands to know why Pierce didn't tell her he and Naomi used to be more than friends.
NAOMI: We...it was not.
CHLOE: I'm talking to my husband.
Pierce looks suspiciously over at Paul, who smirks at him.
PIERCE: Yes, OK, I asked Naomi out a few times.
NAOMI: I always said no.
Chloe is not impressed with Pierce's feeble explanations and ends up stomping off.

NAOMI: It's not my fault!
SHEILA: Oh, it never is!
KYLE: Gran, come on, she wasn't chasing him.
SHEILA: It's still trouble!
NAOMI: That's why I told him to keep it between us.
SHEILA: Naomi, can't you see a married man without putting your paws all over him?!
NAOMI: I haven't done anything! Pierce and Chloe are perfect for each other, anyone can see that. This is just a stupid crush that I was getting over and moving on from...
SHEILA: Until Chloe found out!
KYLE: How *did* she find out?
NAOMI, SHEILA and KYLE: Paul.
No.28, the following morning
Elly is playing with Aster when Aaron and David pop round. They invite her to come out for a coffee.
Aaron awkwardly asks if he and Elly are OK, since he was working with Claudia. She assures him that she doesn't hold that against him.
Shaun comes out and David asks how he's getting on. He warns him not to under- estimate what he's been through, and he should talk to someone.
Terese is telling Paul off for being underhanded with Pierce/Naomi/Chloe. He is unrepentant.
Andrea is crying over her picture of Hugo when Heather is brought in. They are shocked to see each other. Heather explains that she's been transferred out of the psych unit as she's better now. They have a little hug.
Garden of No.28
Toadie asks Karl who he was having lunch with the other day. Karl explains it was Olivia - they went out a few times when he was divorced form Susan. Toadie isn't terribly impressed and warns Karl that he's going in the wrong direction.
Naomi sees Chloe and tells her that she was surprised to see Pierce in Erinsborough. She initially was attracted to him, but once she knew he was married she pulled back.
CHLOE: Call me crazy, but, I do believe there's nothing going on.
NAOMI:(relieved) Oh, thank you!
CHLOE: But that's not why I'm upset. It's the fact that through all this working so close together, neither of you said a word! Finding out like this...makes me wonder how much I can trust you.
Chloe walks off.
Elly seems to be avoiding leaving the house. Chloe arrives for a catch- up and Shaun leaves them to it.
Karl and Toadie are sitting in awkward silence when Dee comes in. Toadie tells Dee that the prison have confirmed that Heather has been moved to Andrea's wing. Dee wants to go and visit her.
KARL: If the doctors are right, it may not be the best thing for either of you.
DEE: She's my mother.
Toadie thinks that Karl should go instead. He agrees.
Sheila and Chloe come in. Sheila assures Chloe that Naomi has overcome her previous reputation of "liking married men"(!) This is news to Chloe who looks confused.
When Sheila has gone, Toadie tells Chloe that he had his own encounter with Naomi when married to Sonya. But he thinks that Naomi has changed - she seems more confident and less needing of validation now.
TOADIE: At the end of the day, it's down to you. What's your gut telling you?
Naomi is just handing in her resignation to Pierce when Chloe comes in and tells her they're not accepting it. She tells Naomi that she's a great addition to the team.
CHLOE: I know what it's like to want someone who can't reciprocate. And from what I can see, you are trying to move past it.
NAOMI: I am, I am - big time.
CHLOE: Well, then, so can I.
NAOMI: Thank you.
Karl is meeting Heather. She tells him that she's getting on well now.
KARL: Do you feel you've come a long way?
HEATHER: Oh, yeah, I do. I'm ready to be with people now. Yeah...maybe I can even help one of my daughters!
They talk about Andrea and Dee. Heather says she thinks about Dee a lot and thinks she deserves to be happy.
HEATHER:(hesitantly) Would you give Jarrod and Susan a message from me?
KARL: I don't know if I can promise to do that.
HEATHER: If you could just...tell them that I, um...I know they will never forgive me for what I did to Sonya...but that, I am sorry. I'm truly sorry.
Outside Harold's Cafe
David and Shaun are having a coffee and a chat. Shaun tells him it was awful after the avalanche, but everyone here went through even worse with Finn.
SHAUN: I'm so...angry. Furious. But even though I know what he did, I'm finding it hard to believe it. The last time I saw Finn, he was earning back trust, he was looking forward to being an uncle...I missed him so much over the last few months. And I still miss him. It's not only that, I'm a father now and I have no idea what I'm doing!
DAVID: That's completely normal!
Shaun wants to support Elly, but David says he needs some time to adjust and come to terms with everything that's happened.
Paul is glowering at Pierce and Chloe, who are being lovey- dovey at another table. Terese rolls her eyes.
TERESE: He's successful, so are you, so what is the problem here?!
PAUL: ...He offered Harlow driving lessons.
TERESE: You're not serious?! All this over a couple of driving lessons?!
PAUL: It was the final straw!
Pierce comes over to tell Paul off for stirring up trouble between him and Chloe.
Andrea is playing table tennis when Heather comes in. She tells Andrea that she's seen Karl Kennedy. Andrea sneers that Dee probably sent him. Andrea wants Heather to ask him to come again, and bring Hugo.
HEATHER: I don't think Jarrod would like that...
ANDREA: Mum, come on! Don't you want to see your grandson?!
HEATHER: Of course I do. But, we must leave these people alone, we have caused them enough harm.
ANDREA: What about you and me, I thought we were a team! You and I, I need your help!
HEATHER: Please, I love you, pumpkin, but I want to be a *good* person, a *good* mother. So...just, whatever you're cooking up, you leave me out of it.
Karl tells Toadie and Dee that Heather seemed a lot brighter. He passes on her message to Toadie about Sonya. Toadie rolls his eyes and decides to head home. Karl walks him out and they talk again about Olivia. Karl says he'll do what he thinks is best.
Inside, Dee is ringing the jail to arrange a visit with Heather.
