The Coffee Shop
Harold is shocked to see Kerry. She holds up the toddler and introduces her to Harold as his granddaughter. Harold smiles despite himself and says hello to Sky. He tells Kerry that he thought she was off in Tibet somewhere, but Kerry says she's back now and was just on her way to see him.
Harold tells her that he's the co-owner of the Coffee Shop now. Sky is restless, so Harold picks her up and puts him on his knee. Then he tells Kerry that he's been so worried about her - he even sent her an invitation to his wedding but didn't get a reply. Kerry is very surprised to hear this and is sad that she missed the wedding - she never got the invitation. Harold says he'll tell her all about it later. Kerry says they're here now, and they might stay for a while depending on what comes up. Harold is very pleased at this.
Harold asks if they have any accommodation and invites them both to stay with him. Kerry accepts gratefully. She is still a bit stunned that Harold is married, and even more so when she hears Madge is a working woman!
Helen and Todd are doing a jigsaw while Beverly irons. Jim comes in and Beverly asks him to finish the ironing - she's in a rush to get her things together to go to Perth. Helen is still a bit rattled about the "Help Helen" rota.
Harold is brooding in the living room - Kerry hasn't turned out as he wanted at all. Madge counters that Kerry is lovely, but Harold is disappointed that she hasn't settled down more.
Kerry comes out having put Sky to sleep. Harold is prickly with Kerry, but Madge is warm and offers her some tea. She says she only drinks herbal tea and Harold is pleased - they have that in common.
Henry comes in and Madge introduces Kerry to him. Harold still doesn't look very pleased.
Paul and Gail's
Gail is chatting to Mark about Jane. His mother is being difficult about their relationship because Jane isn't an upper-class girl. Mark is hoping to talk his mother round though - he's not too happy with his mother.
Paul invites Mark to stay for dinner. Gail warns Paul not to bore Mark with his business woes!
Later at Paul and Gail's
Paul asks Mark if he's thought of investing in Australia. Mark says he is, but hasn't found anything suitable yet. Paul says he might have just the thing - investing in the Australian end of the Daniels Corporation. Gail isn't happy that Paul is bringing this up over dinner, but Paul brushes this off. Mark says that it's probably not the right area for his company, though - and besides, he's too worried about Jane to think about much else.
Kerry is telling Henry, Madge and Harold some travel stories over dinner. Harold then asks her about Sky's father. Kerry says that they were really happy together for a while and she really wanted to have a baby. But her father didn't really, so he moved on. Kerry is quite happy with this state of affairs. Harold is shocked - he says Sky needs a father when she's growing up, but Kerry doesn't agree. Madge says Kerry is entitled to her own point of view. Kerry says that Sky gets plenty of love and isn't going to miss out on anything.
Madge quickly steers the conversation back to travel and Harold is shocked to hear that Kerry has been back in Australia for a few months. He's not happy that she didn't come straight home.
Henry likes Kerry very much though and tells her, "Welcome to the family"
The family are eating dinner and Beverly has just finished her packing. Helen tells them that Paul is having trouble raising the money for the buyout, but Jim says that Paul knows what he's doing. Paul has always fought his own battles and he likes it that way.
Henry tells Harold that he likes Kerry and Sky very much. He can't get over how different Kerry is from David. Harold says that he did his best with Kerry but it all went wrong. Henry says nothing went wrong - Kerry is great. But Harold says that Kerry's life is repugnant to everything he holds sacred. Henry tries to reason with him - he should be proud of the way Kerry's turned out, even if she hasn't turned out the same as him. Kerry is confident, alive and basically a good person. Henry says he himself has done a lot of things he's not proud of, but Madge has always accepted him the way he is. Harold is unmoved though - he's disgusted with the way that Kerry traipsed round the world with a young child. Henry says he'll have to find a way to come to terms with things - if he takes a close look at Kerry he'll find that she's not so bad. He tells Harold sincerely that he thinks he's a good bloke and he's done well with his kids, and in looking after Henry as well. Harold thanks him.
Paul and Gail's
Gail is cross because Paul is still going on about the business deal. She tells him off for grilling Mark. Paul can't think who else can lend him the money. Gail says she's sick of talking about it, and they're supposed to be over at the Robinsons saying goodbye to Beverly anyway. Paul continues to stew.
Paul and Gail come in to say goodbye to Beverly. Gail says she wanted to have a chat to Beverly before she left, so she'll come along to the airport with her. Paul decides to stay with Helen - they hardly ever have time to talk these days.
Helen asks Paul about the money he needs for the business deal. He says it's such a good deal - whoever invests can't lose. Paul suddenly asks if Helen is interested - she could borrow the money against her Home James business. Helen asks him to tell her more.
Madge tells Harold that she'll really miss Henry. Harold says him moving in with Bronwyn is not his first choice, but all things considered, Henry is a good lad and Madge has done well with him.
Kerry comes out and Madge gives her a tour of the kitchen, telling her she's a welcome guest. She opens the fridge and then suddenly screams when she sees a spider. But Kerry picks up the spider and puts it outside. Madge is appalled to see Kerry handling a spider, but Harold is pleased to see her showing compassion for one of "God's little creatures" and thinks it is "rather lovely".
Paul has talked to Helen about the business deal and she thinks it makes a lot of sense. She says she'll get on to her solicitor in the morning to arrange a loan.
Gail, Jim and Todd come home from the airport. Helen tells them that she's going to lend Paul the money he needs to buy Rosemary out. Gail is incensed that Paul has put the hard word on his own grandmother. Jim isn't impressed either, but Paul says he's not ripping her off. Gail says that there are risks - Helen could lose everything if it went wrong. Jim gets very cross - he's realised that Paul didn't stay behind from the airport out of concern for Helen, but to worm her money out of her. He shows Paul the door telling him he's sick of the sight of him. He slams the door behind him.
