Jane is finishing the lesson as the bell rings. Sadie and Aubrey invite Zara to lunch at Harold's, suggesting that Hendrix will be there.
Jane holds Zara back. She is waiting for Zara's assignment that was meant to be e- mailed the night before. Zara reminds Jane they've just moved and will need the Wi- Fi password. She has had a lot on as well with her job and a full household! Zara promises to do it ASAP but Jane won't accept that. It has to be the next morning or it will be a fail. Sadie and Aubrey (who are waiting) managed it plus all the others.
JANE: Why should you get special treatment?
SADIE: (Outside the classroom) Don't worry about her. I bet she has 50 cats at home.

LEVI: She probably grabbed a normal kitchen knife when she heard you breaking into her house.
ROXY: It was a serious weapon. The kind of weapon that cops confiscate.
Roxy wants Levi to investigate this further. Roxy admits she was OTT but is convinced her gut instinct is right. Levi promises to talk to Freya but still looks puzzled.
Outside Harold's Cafe
Hendrix tells Chloe that things are going ok as they catch up over coffee. Sadie, Aubrey and Zara arrive nearby and watch from a distance.
SADIE: Who's the cougar?
AUBREY: Looks like you got some competition!
Zara explains who Chloe is and Zara lets them think they share a house. Sadie is envious and takes a picture. They tell her about a private thirst account they've set up for pictures of Hendrix and will send Zara the link. They tell Zara she will also be an admin.
Freya opens the door to Levi, she walks away from him into the apartment and he follows her. He has heard Roxy's side of the story. She heard a break in noise and was really scared. She had no idea who was breaking in.
LEVI: Roxy gets super protective. She's latched onto this idea that you're not being completely honest with us.
FREYA: You know that I would well be in my rights to make an official complaint.
Levi realises this but wants to find out more about the hunting knife. Freya takes a knife out of the knife block and tells him that is the knife. She insists it was for her protection. She has been broken into before and she arrived home at the wrong moment. Levi knows what she's talking about.
FREYA: I felt so weak. I never want to feel like that again.
Levi offers to report it but Freya doesn't want to do that. She thanks him for his support. Levi heads off.
Jane tells Susan she's worried about Zara's attitude. She tells her about what happened with the essay.

Susan thinks Jane was right to give her another day and hopes Zara will tell them if she's having problems.
Curtis arrives as Jane decides to give Amy a call. Curtis hesitantly suggests concern over Zara influencing Sadie and Aubrey. Susan commends this idea. Curtis points out they are well behaved students but not sure what will happen now.
JANE: Asked them to show her the ropes hoping they would rub off on her not the other way around.
Levi tells Roxy that Freya has decided not to report it. Sheila is in the background as the others talk.
ROXY: Then she would have to admit what happened.
Levi tells Roxy that Freya has been burgled before. Roxy mentions the knife, Levi tells her it was a defence weapon. He tells her it was an ordinary kitchen knife. Roxy tells him Freya's hiding the real knife. Roxy realises that he doesn't believe her. Kyle supports her but seems to be doubting her story.
ROXY: You think I hallucinated a hunting knife?
KYLE: Maybe it was bigger and scarier than it actually was.
SHEILA: You had a scare so drop it now and get rid of this silly obsession that Freya's a liar.
ROXY: But -
SHEILA: Drop it or someone is going to end up with a serious injury.
Roxy realises that none of them believe her.
The girls are drooling over the photos of Hendrix on the laptop. Amy comes through and wants to know what's going on. Amy reminds her about the overdue assignment and thinks were hectic at home. Zara points out they've just moved to a new home. Amy tells her she needs to do the assignment. Sadie thinks Amy's coming down hard. Zara thinks it's Toadie's influence. Sadie doesn't think Jane should be phoning Amy.
SADIE: Is her sad old life so boring that she has to mess with yours?
ZARA: I heard sticking her nose in people's business is her whole thing.
Sadie and Aubrey are intrigued so talk Zara into telling them about nanny cam.
No.26 Backyard / Freya's Apartment
Levi feeds Gary the pigeon and then looks at his phone. Freya is looking at photos of a guy on her phone - possibly Gareth? She declines a call from Levi. Levi leaves Freya a voicemail asking her to ring him back.
Mackenzie is helping Amy to do the permit. Zara is heading off leaving the lunch bags on the side. Amy notes Sadie and Aubrey didn't help her clean up their lunch. Zara shrugs it off. Toadie wants her to finish cleaning. Zara promises to do it later as she needs to head to school, Amy insists she doesn't wait and will give her a lift.
ZARA: Why do you have to make my life harder?
AMY: I just gave you a solution to make it easier.
ZARA: No. You tried to control me again.
Amy insists she finishes cleaning, Zara isn't happy but does it.
Roxy has checked her phone and she had the right type of knife. Roxy realises that Kyle is doubtful. She points out that she can find the right knife. Sheila comes over and points out that Roxy was the one doing the breaking and entering. Roxy reminds them about Ned and Scarlett. Kyle spots David and calls him over.
KYLE: Isn't it true that people's memories can get messed up if they're stressed out?
DAVID: Sure. Extreme stress can certainly affect memory. Recollections can become vague or distorted.
Roxy isn't impressed. David decides not to probe further and heads off.
KYLE: I know you're really looking out for Levi but you need to drop this.
Amy comes over to her new venture which is near the Tram 82. Amy looks genuinely thrilled, Ned hadn't planned for her to see it so soon.
AMY: I love it.
Ned designed the artwork and Harlow helped transfer it to the van. He is now finishing it off. He knows he wanted to get the business off the ground. He takes her off to show her various bits.
Levi has come to see Freya. He apologises for just turning up out of the blue but is concerned about her. He bought a treat and she's touched.
FREYA: I really need to work through what happened.
Levi understands and promises to let her do that. She gets that, he realises she's not going to invite him in. He hands her the dessert. He doesn't want their happiness to be ruined by what's happened.
FREYA: You're a really great guy. I just need some space. (Levi heads off.)
Jane notes that Zara's nearly late as she arrives back.
ZARA: Standing here being told off for being late will only make me later.
JANE: I beg your pardon? That is not an acceptable way to speak to a teacher.
SUSAN: I agree. Apologise Zara.
ZARA: Great. Now I have 3 teachers ganging up on me.
Susan tells her that her attitude doesn't impress them. Susan wants Zara to spend her free periods in the library doing her work and not go off campus during lunchtime. Zara isn't impressed that everyone else can go off campus.
CURTIS: Everyone else treats the school with respect.
ZARA: How am I meant to make friends if I can't go to lunch with them?
Jane thinks that this will prove if they're true friends or not. Jane reminds Zara about the assignment as she heads off.
Ned is showing off a serving tray which Amy loves. She had worried he wasn't interested anymore after what happened the day before. She has been so dependent on him which isn't fair as they're just friends at the moment.
NED: I want to be there for you.
AMY: I wish things could be different.
NED: Me too.
