Levi is unsure whether to tell Freya in case it leads to disappointment. Ned thinks that Levi could track down Gareth. Levi says he's ok with Gareth being back in Freya's life. They have tracked Gareth to a caravan park. Ned offers to come too but Levi is unsure when he can go there. Ned offers to go by himself. Ned will let Levi know if it's Gareth, he will leave if it's not him.
Harlow is holding Isla as she and Nicolette coo over her as Isla giggles. Nicolette takes Isla and she starts to cry. Harlow suggests to Ned that they head off as they plan to paintball in the morning. Ned confesses he's double booked as he didn't realise it was definite. Harlow is disappointed, Ned tentatively explains about the lead. Harlow guesses it's about Gareth and invites herself along, Ned isn't so sure. She twists his arm behind his back.
HARLOW: I can look after myself if that's what you're worried about.
Harlow won't give in so Ned agrees. They need to start early as they're going to River Bend later the same day.
Chloe tells Glen and Terese that Freya is packing for the trip instead of having dinner.
TERESE: This trip is starting to sound like quite the party. Some people like their holidays to be quiet and relaxing.
CHLOE: Some people are squareasoid.
GLEN: My thoughts exactly.
Terese laughs it off. They're missing the trip due to Terese returning to work. Chloe is thinking about getting involved with Montana Marcel's Fashion Week. Terese is very interested, Glen realises it's a great event. Chloe wants to start in on a pitch and Terese is happy to agree. Paul has overheard and is agreeable. He's happy to pitch a tender with Chloe's help and waves off Terese's concerns about his health.
It is now the next morning. Kyle is surprised Levi is in his uniform. Levi has to sort things out before the trip and heads off. Roxy comes over and Kyle realises Roxy is researching insemination FAQs. She is really happy about it.
Chloe arrives to tell them about the Fashion Week pitch. Roxy is full of ideas already. Chloe suggests that she joins her meeting with Terese.
Harlow has brought along mini donuts to keep them going. They pull up into a caravan park and help themselves to donuts. Harlow is surprised Amy hasn't been in touch after everything that's happened lately. Ned thinks a reconciliation is unlikely with Zara in the picture. Ned thinks a holiday is a good cover for their stakeout but Harlow isn't so sure. Harlow decides they're lovers and plan a year long trip around Australia staying in caravans! Ned thinks his idea is better but Harlow outrules him.
Paul comes off the phone and is unimpressed that Terese is wanting his assets! Leo thinks that is out of character for Terese, Paul agrees. Leo thinks the lawyer is deciding this.
PAUL: Clients instruct their lawyers, not the other way around.
Roxy and Chloe are coming up with ideas for Fashion Week. Paul comes over and tells Terese he will give her a fight if she wants one.
PAUL: You know you've picked the right guy.
Levi messages Ned to find out what's going on then ignores a call from Freya.
Terese tells Toadie that she wasn't interested in Paul's assets so this is down to her lawyer Stuart. Toadie is unsure what's going on as the lawyer has a good reputation. She wants the settlement to be as uncomplicated as possible and they both keep their own assets. Terese hints that Toadie would be more help but he doesn't have much expertise in this area. She thinks it's straightforward so still wants his help. Toadie agrees and instructs her to officially write to Stuart to disengage him.
Paul arrives and Terese tells him Toadie is now her lawyer. She doesn't plan to take his assets, he is sure he'd be the winner.
TERERSE: It's a fight I never wanted to have. If I did you would be in trouble.
They agree to play fairly.
Roxy is cooing to Abigail who is in Leo's arms. Terese returns and Roxy tells her that Leo has agreed to offer the Vineyard as an extra venue.
LEO: Your pitch was really good. You're a smooth operator.
Terese is brainstorming and thinks Roxy could fill the role of Project Co- ordinator. Roxy likes the idea but is busy at The Waterhole while Sheila is away. Terese is looking for a Manager anyway.
ROXY: I kinda wanna focus on baby making right now.
Terese agrees but doesn't look so convinced.
Ned thinks he spots Gareth but Harlow isn't sure from a distance. They get out of the car and head over to the caravans. They try to find Gareth, Ned has his phone ready to take a picture. A woman comes over and wants to know what's going on. Ned explains about their research. The woman tells them it's a holiday park and the caravans aren't in great shape.
WOMAN: Are you connected to those cops? The ones who were snooping around here yesterday.
Ned and Harlow make their excuses when Gareth suddenly arrives!
GARETH: What's going on?
Kyle is making plans for snacks for the trip. Terese arrives and wants to talk to Roxy. Terese is really keen for Roxy to be the Project Co- ordinator. It's not a long term role and thinks it will suit her perfectly. Roxy is grateful.
TERESE: This is the opportunity you've been waiting for.
KYLE: Project Co- ordinator sounds right up your alley. It's your dream job.
ROXY: My dreams have changed.
Roxy wants to focus on trying for a baby and the stress of a new job wouldn't help.
Roxy turns down the offer, Terese and Kyle look disappointed.
The woman tells Gareth that Harlow and Ned seem to be following them and photographing them. Gareth wants to know what's going on. Ned explains that they took the photo for Freya's benefit.
GARETH: Freya knows I'm here?
NED: Not yet.
Ned explains that Freya is a friend of a friend and is trying to track down Gareth. Gareth doesn't seem any happier and suggests they go inside the caravan to chat, he and the woman head inside. Ned is wary of their reaction. Harlow thinks it's ok after Gareth has been hiding out. They follow the others.
Freya has made Levi some food for his trip, he's touched and thanks her. As she didn't get a response earlier she decided to surprise him with the food. He apologises and claims he intended to return her call! She understands. She has downloaded a show to watch together. He needs to return home to pack so heads off. Freya looks happy with the way things went.
Levi is heading out the door as Toadie arrives. Roxy offers Toadie a coffee while she can still drinks lots of caffeine. Toadie gets the hint and is happy for them. Toadie picks up that Kyle isn't as enthusiastic. Kyle explains about the job offer but thinks he is the reason Roxy turned the job down.
KYLE: She knows how badly I want a kid. This is a great opportunity for her. She'd be really good at it.
Kyle is unsure what to say to Roxy. He admits he's worried about how things will go through the baby making progress. He brings up Georgia's miscarriage.
TOADIE: You've got to decide whether or not you want a family badly enough to risk that.
The residents are loading up the van ready for the trip. Levi leaves Ned a voicemail asking him to return his call. Nicolette reminds him that Ned and Harlow promised to return before they're due to set off. Levi hadn't realised Harlow had accompanied Ned and leaves Ned another voicemail. Freya arrives and they talk about being excited about the trip. Ned wishes Glen all the best for the trip.
The others have come inside as Ned and Harlow aren't back yet. Nicolette suggests finding the fishing gear. Ned and Harlow arrive and Levi wants to know what's going on. Levi offers to help Ned and Harlow pack while Nicolette and Freya sorts out the fishing gear. Ned tells Levi that they've located Gareth and they need to explain some things.
They are now sitting down. Harlow tells Levi it's not what he's expecting to hear and Gareth's story is told through flashbacks.
Ned mentions to Gareth about the corrupt cops. Harlow explains that Freya is really worried about Gareth and wants to hear he's ok. Gareth refuses to have any contact with Freya.
GARETH: She's the one I'm hiding from.
Levi is confused what's going on. Gareth told Ned and Harlow that the corrupt cops don't exist.
Gareth explains that things went well with Freya originally. She got more and more obsessive and controlling as time went on. Gareth was stalked by Freya and questioned his every move. Freya wouldn't let Gareth break up with her.
WOMAN: Until he met me. Things got seriously out of hand.
Freya called Gareth claiming someone was breaking in and was armed with a hunting knife. The knife was in the bedside table. Freya had planned it all. This led to Gareth getting away from Freya.
GARETH: Your mate should be careful. Don't believe everything she tells you.
Levi is doubtful. Harlow tells him Gareth is getting away from Freya.
NED: She sounds like another Scarlett.
