- Amy worrying that Ned and Levi might be questioning their sexuality
- Levi admitting to Sheila that he hasn't been having fun with Amy lately
- Levi meeting Felicity and having a drink with her
- Ned overhearing Felicity on the phone telling someone she likes Levi
- The doctor telling Hendrix that he found a lump
- Mackenzie telling Hendrix they need to go on a break
- Hendrix confessing to Kyle that he cancelled his hospital appointment
- Kyle instructing Hendrix to tell Karl and Susan the truth or he will
Feeling Kyle staring at him, Hendrix reluctantly heads out to take his order. But the only thing Kyle wants is for Hendrix to re- book his appointment. When Hendrix brushes him off, Kyle dials the hospital on his phone then passes it over. With a sigh, Hendrix goes through with the call and ends up with an ultrasound appointment that afternoon.
HENDRIX: Done. Happy?
KYLE: Over the moon. Now we can tell Karl and Susan.
HENDRIX: No, please.
KYLE: Mate, I wasn't messing around when I told you if you didn't tell them, I will. So go and grab your stuff. I'm not letting you out of my sight until I know that this thing's done.
Ned catches up with Levi and 'casually' asks about the woman he saw him with. Levi says Felicity was just repaying him with a drink after she spilt one on him. Ned brings up Felicity's phone call he overheard where she was telling her friend it meant more, but Levi reiterates that they just had a good chat.
NED: So she knows you've got a girlfriend then?
LEVI: Well it didn't come up. What's with all the questions, man, are you a cop now or something?
NED: No, I just don't want Amy to get hurt.
LEVI: (affronted) Well neither do I.
Ned knows things have been tricky lately, but Levi shouldn't mess Amy around because of one bad week. Levi acknowledges that he and Felicity may have flirted a little, but it was only a bit of fun. He gets defensive when Ned asks if he's going to tell Amy what happened, insisting there's nothing to tell. "We're both protective of Amy," Levi says, "so let's not hurt her by making something out of nothing." Ned doesn't look enthused by the prospect of lying to Amy.
The Flamingo Bar
Amy listens in while Roxy and Mackenzie debrief about the 'taking a break' debacle with Hendrix. Mackenzie doesn't understand why Hendrix didn't have any sort of response when it happened. "Because they reckon no answer is the answer," Amy chimes in, bringing them their drinks. She adds that it could be fear talking too so the other person doesn't completely abandon you. Amy says this is the reason why she needs to have a big chat with Ned and Levi sooner rather than later. Roxy offers to look after the bar so Amy can get it over and done with, which Amy happily takes her up on.
AMY: You can't actually die of embarrassment can you?
ROXY: If you could, I would not be here today.
Sheila is trying to get dirt from Levi about the nice time she saw him having with Felicity earlier. The more Levi insists that it was just a harmless drink, the more Sheila rubs it in that he and Felicity would make a lovely couple. Levi says that it was nice to just sit and chat to someone without any drama.
SHEILA: Well you were never one for dramatics, love. That's one of the reasons it didn't work out with Bea.
LEVI: Know what I learnt from that, Gran? Some people are just worth the effort - like Amy.
Speaking of, Levi gets a text from Amy who wants to meet up. Levi immediately thinks that Ned told her about Felicity and is annoyed.
Kyle and Hendrix approach Karl, who tells them Susan's just gone off to get more almond milk. Hendrix wants to wait for her to get back, but Kyle's had enough of the stalling and says it's truth time. Karl becomes concerned when Hendrix tells him he's got an ultrasound appointment at the hospital soon because the doctor found a lump at the testing booth. Karl asks if he's had a follow- up appointment with the doctor. Hendrix says he tried but he couldn't go through with it. Realising this was why Hendrix has been acting out lately, Karl offers Hendrix his support and says whatever this is, they'll get through it together.
Ned's already inside when Amy invites Levi in. Before Amy can start talking about why they're there, Levi jumps in and says he already knows. Ned tries to stop him from blurting it out, but Levi barrels ahead. "He told you I was on a date with someone, right?" he says, much to Amy's surprise. Once Ned tells him he didn't mention it, Levi tries his best to backtrack, but Amy's not having it. Ned heads out so they can have a private chat. "So, you want to tell me about this date?" Amy asks, while Levi looks cornered.
After Levi explains what happened, Amy asks if Levi and Felicity exchanged numbers. Levi admits that Felicity gave him hers. Amy then asks if Levi would have told her about the date if it went well. Getting frustrated, Levi says he's been honest about everything so his story isn't going to change.
AMY: But I wouldn't have known about it unless you'd been outed.
LEVI: Oh I'm sorry, next time I'll give you a call and ask for permission before I speak to somebody. Yeah, it sucks when your partner shuts you out, doesn't it?
AMY: Is that what this is about? You want to go and see someone else because we haven't spent time together for the last couple of days? It's been a couple of days, Levi!
LEVI: Come on, you really think my ego's that fragile that I'll need to get attention from some random woman?
AMY: I don't know, you tell me.
Having had enough of the conversation, Levi gets up and says he's going for a walk.
Rebecchi Law Office
Mackenzie gets extremely worried when Susan drops in to let her know Hendrix is on his way to the hospital with Karl. Mackenzie wants to know why Susan isn't reassuring her that Hendrix is fine, and Susan replies that it's because she's not sure herself yet.
SUSAN: Hendrix has given me the okay to tell you what's going on. He's going to have an ultrasound, they're scanning for testicular cancer.
SUSAN: Yes. They found a lump at the screening booth. He'd been putting it off getting it checked out.
MACKENZIE: The film festival was weeks ago, he must have been worried sick.
SUSAN: And desperately avoiding it. But that's why he's been acting out, he's been terrified.
Mackenzie remembers the despondent way Hendrix spoke about having no future, and feels awful for not sticking by him when he needed support.
SUSAN: No you can't take that on. Karl and I felt exactly the same. Come on, his behaviour was insufferable. You stepped back to protect yourself, as you should.
MACKENZIE: Then what do we do now?
SUSAN: We wait.
Roxy tells Levi she only has ten minutes left on her break, so he has to fill her in quickly on what happened with Amy. Levi says he went to Amy's apartment expecting her to let he and Ned know where they stand, but he ended up having to explain himself. Sheila is listening in to their conversation and calls out the cheek of Amy writing her own rulebook.
LEVI: It was a misunderstanding, Gran, you can hop off your high horse.
SHEILA: Not much room up in the saddle with Amy there. She gets her back up over a friendly drink, meanwhile she's got two boyfriends.
LEVI: Thanks for the summary, Gran, but I don't want to talk about this anymore.
SHEILA: It's a double double- standard, love. Why should she be allowed to have two horses in the race?
But Levi doesn't know because they have never discussed the option of he and Ned seeing other people. Roxy asks if that's something he'd want, but Levi says he hasn't thought much about it. Sheila thinks now might be the time - all things being fair and equal, Amy shouldn't have a problem with it.
Hendrix is nervously waiting in the corridor when Mackenzie appears. He's surprised she actually came, but Mackenzie says she thought she'd put a break on their break given the circumstances. Hendrix tells her he just had the ultrasound so now they play the waiting game. Wanting to comfort him, Mackenzie takes his hand to hold and laces their fingers together. Hendrix thanks her for coming and Mac asks where they go from here.
HENDRIX: Let's not make any decisions until I get my results back. You've already been through cancer with your mum.
MACKENZIE: Exactly. I have a bit of expertise in this area. Enough to know that you are getting way ahead of yourself.
Doctor Alavi appears and tells Hendrix to come through - he's got his results. Hendrix starts to follow, then holds out his hand for Mackenzie to come with him.
The Flamingo Bar
Roxy returns to find Amy still in a stressed- out mood. Amy says she was prepared to have a chat with the boys but then just wound up jealous about "this random Felicity". Roxy admits that she hates to "stroke this self- combusting fire" Amy's got going on, but Sheila's really pushing the theory that if Amy can have two partners, so can Levi. Amy can't believe her ears - Sheila's been so disapproving of their relationship already, and now she wants to make it harder? Roxy smirks and says it may never be Sheila's place, but it will literally never stop her. Roxy then encourages Amy to try and talk to the boys again before it gets more complicated.
AMY: I think that ship has sailed. Honestly, the more defensive he got over this 'casual' drink, the more I didn't believe him. Do you think that he liked her?
ROXY: I don't know but I don't think that's your problem. You have trust issues. I'm sure Levi will understand once he cools off and you explain where your head's at.
AMY: Where my head's at? Do you know I've been thinking that maybe Ned and Levi want to date each other.
ROXY: Ned and Levi? That's not gonna happen.
AMY: Well stranger things have happened.
ROXY: Right. Just because your exes went down that road it doesn't mean every guy you date is going to, too. The chances of that happening twice are already slim.
Roxy reiterates that Amy needs to talk to Levi about everything, though, or else she might lose him.
Hendrix and Mackenzie anxiously wait as Dr Alavi peruses Hendrix's results. They finally breathe a sigh of relief when the doctor lets them know it's not cancer. He believes the lump is most likely a benign cyst, which typically go away on their own, but he'll book Hendrix in for a check- up in six months just to be sure. Hendrix asks why his stomach would have been playing up, but the doctor attributes it to stress (and excessive working out once Hendrix admits he's been going too hard at the gym to deal with his anxiety). Hendrix thanks the doctor for the great news.
Kyle takes some rubbish out and winces as he experiences another twinge in his lower back. Hendrix drops by with Mackenzie and Karl to let Kyle know the good news about his results. He thanks Kyle for pushing him to see a doctor. Hendrix then says he owes everyone an apology for acting like a massive jerk lately. Kyle asks what he's thinking about school, and everyone is pleased when Hendrix says he's going to complete Year 13. Ducking into the tram, Karl grabs them a bottle of champagne to celebrate.
Amy has finally sat down and told Ned and Levi what's been worrying her, admitting all the threesome stuff just made her concerns boil over. While a bit taken aback, Ned guesses it makes sense considering what happened with her exes. But Levi and Ned both assure Amy that they're straight.
AMY: That's what my ex- husbands said.
NED: Well I don't know those guys but I know me, and I'm not scared or repressing my sexuality or anything like that. I'm just not into guys.
LEVI: Yeah, I know me as well and look, I have no issue being gay or bi, I'm just not.
AMY: Okay, I'm sorry. It's just the fear.
Ned thanks Amy for being honest, otherwise their relationship is just going to get messy. "Yes, like insisting I was on a date when I wasn't," Levi chimes in, still in a mood from earlier. Wanting to avoid the situation, Ned goes into the cafe office to do some work. Amy apologises to Levi for how she's been behaving and hopes they can forgive and forget it all. But Levi was hoping they could have a chat back at her place.
Hendrix returns home with Mackenzie and says he liked her even more for putting them on a break. He treated her like garbage, but she stood up for herself and that's what he needs. Someone who is going to hold him accountable for his actions. Mackenzie says she didn't want to break up with him at all. Cementing their relationship getting back on track, they kiss, which turns into a heated make- out session. They only stop when Hendrix's phone alarm goes off, reminding him he's due back at work. They're reluctant to leave each other, but Hendrix smiles and says he'll bring her back some cake. When Hendrix goes, Mackenzie smiles a little giddily to herself.
Levi tells Amy it's been a full on couple of days and lets her know the harassment he's been getting at work. Then the whole Felicity date saga got him thinking - they never really clarified the rules for he and Ned. Amy starts to look concerned and asks what Levi means.
LEVI: Like if I'm cool with you being with Ned, you should be cool with me having another girlfriend too, right?
AMY: You really like this Felicity woman, huh?
LEVI: It's not about Felicity.
AMY: Well then why are you asking me all of a sudden?
LEVI: Because I just want to know where I stand. If I do connect with somebody, I want to know what options I have on the table.
AMY: Options? Aren't you happy?
LEVI: Amy I'm just trying to clarify the rules here.
AMY: The rules? The rules are the same as they've always been. Remember you both talked me into this. I didn't agree to you seeing someone else.
LEVI: Yeah because I've never asked before. So now I'm asking.
