Dawn over Melbourne
Poor Toadie has been awake all night. He picks up one of Hugo's ties and looks at it, sadly. Then he looks on the Internet for a bit, then goes to the kitchen. He doesn't know where to put himself really.
Eventually, Shane gets up and make him a coffee. Dipi gets up too. Apparently Dee has gone to see Heather.
Shane tells Toadie that he's spoken to Karl and Susan, but he says there's no point them coming back because there's nothing they can do.
Yashvi is staying at Ned's, apparently feeling awful.
Dee has come to see Heather and is asking her is there are any details about Andrea or Owen that she remembers.
DEE: You know her better than anyone else. Where would she go? Is there anywhere she'd return to?
HEATHER: Honest, we moved around so much. But, if I know Andy, if I had any guess at all, she would just be as far away from you as possible, she would just run, she would just keep running.
DEE: Alright. If you think of anything, it's really important...
HEATHER: Oh, I swear to you and Jarrod, on that little boy's life, if I can do *anything* to help, I will. I promise I will.
Andrea is playing with Hugo and telling him that they're going to have a lot of fun together.
Owen comes in with some stuff for Andrea, such as a phone, and some toys for Hugo. He advises her to stay hidden as the cops are swarming everywhere looking for her.
She gives him an envelope with money in it. He hides it down a sofa.
Andrea is thinking about dying her hair and sends him out to buy hair dye for her. On his way out he tells her he loves her and she responds unenthusiastically.
Garden of No.26
Levi and Kyle are talking about Andrea. Sheila comes out but when she sees Levi she tries to avoid him.
Owen has come back with the hair dye. He says she'll look great with dark hair.
OWEN: I'm excited. There's finally nothing keeping us apart.
ANDREA: Yeah, me too.
OWEN: You realise this is the first time we've been alone properly? No guards, no prisoners...
He goes to kiss her.
ANDREA: Wait. I...just think I'll feel better once I've coloured my hair. I'll feel safer.
OWEN: You *are* safe, I've got you.
ANDREA: I know, I know.
OWEN: Then, why can't we...
ANDREA: Can't I just colour my hair?! I mean, is that too much to ask?!
OWEN: OK, I'm sorry.
ANDREA: No, *I'm* sorry...I have a lot going on.
OWEN: All good, all good.
She asks him coquettishly if he'll make her a cup of tea. Then she quickly texts someone on her new phone.
Andrea's hair is now brown and Owen approves. He tells her he's found somewhere for them to rent, but she's not sure she's ready to live together.
ANDREA: I've got Hugo now...I just think I need to make him my priority.
OWEN: You still love me, right?
ANDREA: Yes, Owen, I love you.
OWEN: Promise me nothing's changed.
He starts kissing her and she fends him off saying it's too much.
Levi is meeting up with Elly to see if she has any detail about Andrea to share.
Yashvi and Ned come in. Yashvi is still very upset about what happened with Hugo.
Ned's surprised to hear that Levi is Sheila's grandson -she's never mentioned him before.
They go over to see Levi and Elly at their table. Elly is just telling Levi that Andrea had a burner phone in prison and they might be able to get a number for it.
Toadie is still very upset and tells Dipi and Shane to stop giving him pep talks(!)
Dee has texted to say that she doesn't think Heather is involved. Toadie is skeptical.
TOADIE: I begged her not to get involved with that woman! If she wasn't visiting her then none of this would have happened!
Just then Toadie's phone rings.
TOADIE:(answering the phone) What?! Right. So that's it then? Good police work.
He rings off. Apparently the burner phone is a dead-end, it hasn't been switched on in a week.
Bea and Terese are discussing the Andrea/Hugo situation. The conversation turns to Levi who Terese met a couple of times in Frankston when she was with Gary.
TERESE: Well, it's a little complicated. Sheila's son, Frank Junior. He cheated on his wife, Jackie. And the other woman that he had the affair with fell pregnant but couldn't look after it. So Frank and Jackie raised him along with their other kids. But the part that I found always strange is, Sheila has always been so stand-offish. It's weird, I've always put it down to the illegitimate thing.
BEA: Surely Sheila doesn't blame Levi for that?
TERESE: Sheila has never had him to come and stay. Not once, not the whole time she's been in Erinsborough. I just don't know how else to explain it.
Andrea has been giving Hugo a bath. When she comes out, Owen has gone. It seems he has cleared out, and he's taken her money too.
Toadie's phone rings.
VOICE: Jarrod. This is Owen Campbell. From the prison.
TOADIE: Where is my son? What have you done with him?
OWEN: He's OK. He's with Andrea. I thought she loved me, but now she's out it's like she's changed her mind.
TOADIE: *Where is he?*
OWEN: They don't have any money or a car, so they can't go anywhere.
TOADIE: TELL ME WHERE HE IS OR I SWEAR TO GOD...!
OWEN: OK, OK. I'll tell you.
Levi has only had a couple of hours sleep as he's crashing on his mate's sofa. Kyle tells him he can come and live with him and Sheila -they've got plenty of room. Sheila protests weakly.
SHEILA: Levi probably doesn't want to live with his old grandmother!
KYLE:(offended) It's good enough for Kyle(!)
Levi thinks this sound great, much to Sheila's horror, but just then he gets a call from work.
Toadie and Dee rush in.
But nobody is there. Andrea is gone.
DEE: She can't have gone far.
TOADIE: Yeah. But where?
He looks at Dee, desperately.
Garden of the Prison
Heather finds the burner phone buried in plant trough. There's also a note, "So we can stay in touch. A."
She quickly pockets the note and turns the phone on.
Heather calls Andrea.
HEATHER: Andy? Where are you?
ANDREA: Nowhere good!
HEATHER: Pumpkin. It'll be OK. You just have to hand yourself in.
ANDREA: Hand myself in?! I just got my baby back.
HEATHER: Yeah...and you need to do the right thing by him.
ANDREA: Oh yeah, I will. I will. I'm going to do a hell of a lot better than you ever did!
HEATHER: I did me best.
ANDREA: You did *jack* And if you really love me, like you always say you did, then maybe this is your chance to do something right, yeah? Help me out of this mess.
HEATHER: Yeah, but...there's nothing I can do from in here!
ANDREA: Your mates...the ones in Mildura...the ones who were going to help you when you were on the run...I need em.
ANDREA: I can do the talking. Just give me the details.
HEATHER: Yeah, but I...I don't know their number off the top of me head...
ANDREA: Names! Addresses!
HEATHER:(nervously) Maybe it's better if I talk to them. I'll make some calls. And...y'know, find out how to get in touch.
ANDREA: Yeah, alright. You'd better not be stuffing me around, Mum. I swear...
ANDREA: You go to the cops...and you're going to regret it. Understood?
HEATHER: I'd never do anything to hurt you.
HEATHER: Someone's coming. Call me later, OK?
But she's hung up.
Sheila is still trying to tell Kyle that Levi should live with a younger crowd. Kyle doesn't buy this and wants to know what the problem is. Sheila insists there is no problem and reluctantly says Levi can move in if he wants.
Levi has come to see Heather. She gives him the burner phone and he thanks her.
HEATHER: I just want everybody to be safe.
LEVI: Well, you've done the right thing.
HEATHER: But...you've got to act fast. Andy's in such a bad place. She is desperate.
LEVI: We've got patrol cars out looking.
HEATHER: Yeah...not that I think she'd hurt Hugo or anything, it's just that...she's very unpredictable.
LEVI: I'm getting there. We're tracing the phone that she used.
HEATHER: No...she's much too clever to be caught like that, she'll take precautions. But...hey, I've got an idea.
LEVI: No, it's fine, we've got it covered from here.
He gets up to go.
HEATHER: No, wait. Please. No-one knows my daughter like I do and the way she thinks. Just...would you just hear me out?
Dramatic music plays as Toadie and Dee arrive back at No.30.
Toadie almost collapses in the street due to his grief and worry about Hugo. Dee tries to comfort him.
Heather is pacing and looking very agitated.
Andrea is still hanging out, looking agitated.
There's a knock at the door and Toadie jumps up. It's Levi.
TOADIE: Did Heather give you more than the phone?
TOADIE: What does that mean?!
LEVI: Sit down. Look, Heather has an idea on how we can lure Andrea out.
TOADIE: Why do I feel like I'm going to hate this?
LEVI: Chances are, Andrea's going to call Heather again. She wants the details of friends who can hide her. She's desperate. And we can use that.
LEVI: Heather suggested that she pretends like she's found a way to escape too...
LEVI: During an off-site psych appointment. She'll tell Andrea she wants to run with her and arrange to meet. That's where we close in.
TOADIE: And Heather has to be let out of the prison in order to make it look like a legit meet-up, right?
LEVI: Andrea's not going to make a move unless she sees her in the flesh. We'll have eyeballs on Heather the whole time.
TOADIE: Absolutely not! Heather is just trying to escape too!
LEVI: We won't let that happen. Look, if you don't like it, we won't go ahead. But this could be our only chance.
I'm with Toadie, it's a terrible plan!
