Summary/Images by: Angel Girl
Darren blaming Karl for Cheryl's death
Karl telling Mal that Darren will make him pay
Toadie, Billy and Hannah getting caught by the tracker guys
Karl can't believe that Billy didn't realise he was breaking the law and gives him a lecture on his behaviour. He was very lucky they weren't charged - Karl sighs this is the last thing he needs and that he's told Billy not to get caught up in Toadie's antics. Billy leaves and Karl continues to rave at Libby about it all - she says they didn't actually hurt anyone. She says things will get better and he sighs he shouldn't have been so hard on them. Libby says they're sticking by him.
Hannah's explaining to Phil and Helen about the final broadcast, they did it for the fans. Phil says she didn't need to upset Helen but she rounds on Phil; her condition shouldn't be brought into it. Phil points out it could have ended up in court so Hannah's very lucky.
Number 24
Marlene gets off the phone to Janice - she can't get the time off from the Navy to attend the funeral. Marlene points out that he's set the table for three when it's only the two of them. Libby arrives and asks if he wants some company... assuming he's still talking to her. She suggests they go for a walk and he bails on dinner - he's not that hungry anyway.
Toadie wants to explain to Karl and tells him that it wasn't Billy's fault. He says that Billy dropped out when he found out it was illegal but Karl says we all have to be responsible for our actions.
Coffee Shop
Billy storms in, looking for Toadie. He's not happy that he bailed and yet is still in trouble. Libby comes in and tells Billy to give their dad a break, with everything he doesn't need this. She thanks Darren for spending time with her and he retorts that it's not her fault Karl's her father. He didn't get to say goodbye and it's his fault. She rounds on him - it's not Karl's fault and she can't listen to him pay out on him. He asks her not to leave him; he needs her more than ever.
Phil comes over to see how Karl's going. He says losing patients is part of the job and you learn to handle it - but he's not handling it very well. He's been sharp with everyone lately.
Coffee Shop
Billy is waiting for Toadie and when he finally arrives is not impressed with Toadie's happy demeanour. Billy has a go at him for the final show but Toadie says he's taking all the heat. He tells Billy that he went to see Karl and that Billy was happy to get involved in the start. Toadie says they weren't arrested and everything's fine, but Billy's not getting involved in anything else.
Ramsay Street
Mel's getting all the details and is happy that they can spend more time together now that the show's over. Billy's not impressed and says that the show wasn't the cause of their problems and it can't be fixed that quickly.
Billy comes in and Karl says they'll talk in the morning. Karl talks about how they prepare you at med school for the death of a patient, but that doesn't help when it's a friend. He's dreading the funeral - people making judgements, not making eye contact...
Coffee Shop
Toadie rants about Billy to Hannah who makes a quick escape when Mel comes in. They make a plan to reunite the friends before Toadie's departure.
Karl asks Lib how Darren's coping and she tells him that she might be seeing Darren but she's on his side. He had hoped that Darren would have calmed down and he thinks he shouldn't go to the funeral. Lib tells him that he should be able to go but he wants to give Cheryl a peaceful send off. When Billy comes out Karl apologises - they were both out of line and he took it out on his son.
Outside Number 32
Mel comes over to see Toadie cleaning out the junk. Toadie talks about leaving and she can't believe he's just walking away from the friendship. She thinks that he shouldn't just throw it all away, but he retorts that she never liked them spending time together! She plays it down, she was jealous of them, He finds a ball that Billy gave him when Toadie made the team and he unconvincingly says he might sell it. Mel doesn't want them to part as enemies but Toadie says Billy can come and see him.
Kennedy back garden
Billy is feeding Cassie when Mel turns up to talk about the feud. Billy couldn't care less about Toadie's departure but Mel doesn't want him to regret throwing away the best friendship he's ever had.
Chez Chez
Karl speaks to Marlene and tells her that he won't be at the funeral. She appreciates the gesture and tells him that Brett is on his way home but she still can't contact Lou. Karl offers to help out with the funeral costs, or maybe the headstone. He offers to make enquiries but when Darren walks in he thinks Karl is trying to buy a clean conscience and throws him out of the pub.
Number 32 back yard
Billy comes over and asks Toadie if he's handed back his footie jumper yet. They make small talk over the radio gear and Toadie's departure. They make stilted apologies to each other before a tentative peace kick-about in the street.
Lib can't believe what Darren did to Karl and she heads out to tell Darren he can't continue to act like that.
Ramsay Street
Mel is thrilled that Billy and Toadie have made up and Billy thanks her for the push. He's touched she made the effort, even though she thought Toadie came between them. Mel replies that there isn't a "them" but he says there can be and so they kiss and make up.
Chez Chez
Libby storms in and tears into Darren over his behaviour. He retorts that Karl killed his mother but she won't hear it. He tells her that she's either on her father's side or his - and she needs to make up her mind as to which one it is.
