- Hannah tells Amy she thinks she saw a light on in No.32, but everyone thinks she was imagining it.
- Hannah is in the old house in the dark. Someone comes in and she screams.

Billy is sleeping on the sofa when Susan comes in. He wakes up and asks her if she had a good night. Susan tells him it was fine, but she doesn't want to talk about it any further.
No.26, the following morning
Hannah is rushing off to school, much to Phil's surprise(!) Phil says he thinks he heard noise over at No.32 last night, but Hannah tells him she's figured out what it was - possums(!) Phil says he'll have to put up some possum boxes.
Hannah runs across to No.32
Hannah wakes Patrick up and demands to know what's going on. He tells her he doesn't want to go back to school - his private school is very pressured. Amy comes in. Hannah tells her off for not telling her Patrick was hiding out at No.32. Apparently Patrick's parents think he's a school camp. Hannah says he'd better think of something fast - Phil is coming over later to check for possums.
Lou asks Hannah how Paul is. She tells him he's staying with his case worker for time being. Hannah offers to take over Paul's job washing cars at the yard. Lou is going away for a few days though, so Hannah will have to answer to Drew.
Susan is cleaning madly before she's even had breakfast. Libby asks Susan why she's crying. Susan says she doesn't need a reason.
SUSAN: I'm surprised you didn't wait up for me, like your brother.
LIBBY: Unlike my brother, I'm not expecting any happily- ever- afters.
SUSAN: No. I'm sorry, I didn't mean to snap. It's just...some mornings it's not easy. Guess I haven't got used to sleeping alone. I wake up in the morning, you know, and then...I remember. You don't want to hear this.
LIBBY: I don't mind.
SUSAN: It's really silly the things you miss. When we woke up in the morning, we used to just...lie there. And sometimes we'd talk. And sometimes we wouldn't say anything. But always our feet would be all tangled up. And this morning I woke up and I moved my feet over to find his feet and they weren't there.
She starts to sob and Libby comforts her.
SUSAN: This isn't the way I thought my life would go. I don't want this!
Hannah has told Zoe that Patrick is hiding out at No.32. Susan comes along. Amy asks Susan to borrow the keys for the storeroom to get some supplies out. Susan introduces a new girl to Hannah and Zoe: her name is Denny.
In a classroom, Amy is trying to persuade Billy to go home at lunchtime and pick up the things Anne left at his house. He reluctantly agrees.
Phil tells Karl that he likes the horse. He says that Sarah may have found her calling at the hospital - she's been hanging out with a guy called Alex. Karl tells Phil that he may have overstepped the mark with Susan last night. He doesn't think she wants to give things another try.
Hannah invites Denny to join their foxtrot. She tells them nastily that it sounds boring and old- fashioned.
Libby is there when Billy comes to pick up the stuff for Amy. Libby asks Billy if he can come home for dinner, but he's going out with Karl.
LIBBY: How can you spend time with him after everything he's done?! You do know that mum was crying again this morning?
LIBBY: I'll give you three guesses.
BILLY: Can we not turn this into a guessing game?! Just tell me, exactly.
LIBBY: Well, mum was handling things pretty well until that dinner with him last night, and now it's like she's back to square one. She was cleaning the windows when I got up this morning.
BILLY: Well, maybe they needed it.
LIBBY: No, they didn't.
BILLY: What, you expect her not to cry again, ever?! Maybe she feels bad about not being with Dad, is that so bad? Maybe she wants to get back with him.
LIBBY: Of course she doesn't.
BILLY:(irritated) Who gave you second sight?
LIBBY: You're being ridiculous. Can't you see that you spending time with Dad is making things worse?
BILLY: Well, I know one thing. You hating Dad must be just as hard for Mum to deal with as me spending time with him. So have a think about that before you have another go at me, OK?
Phil comes in and has a chat with Susan about the foxtrot...apparently some of the parents think they should have a doctor on hand. Phil asks her how she feels about asking Karl. She says it's fine - Karl has always been the school's unofficial doctor. Phil will ask him. They awkwardly talk about the dinner between Susan and Karl last night.
Lou is reversing out of the drive when he sees someone in No.32 in his mirror. He gets out of his car and walks purposefully across the street. Patrick sees him coming and takes refuge in the house.
Denny is moaning about the foxtrot and says she didn't want to leave Eden Hills Grammar. She very nastily tells them that she doesn't like Erinsborough High. Hannah rolls her eyes and walks off.
Front of No.28
Billy and Karl are chatting. Billy asks what happened with Susan but Karl doesn't want to talk about it.
BILLY: Just talk to me. Say something, anything.
KARL: I'm just feeling a bit tired at the moment, mate. Stressed. Stupid. And very old. When did you get so tall?
KARL: You've got your mother's eyes, you know that?
BILLY: Have I?
KARL: OK, well, uh, let's get this show on the road. Don't you want to drive?
BILLY:(stunned) You're going to let *me* drive the car?!
KARL: Yeah, why not.
Billy is chuffed and rushes off to get his keys!
Amy is trying to get Patrick to go to a refuge, but he says he fine at No.32.
Ruth comes in suddenly and surprises them. She recognises Patrick and asks him if he's seen any possums.
Hannah is cleaning cars and Denny is hanging out with her. She tells Hannah she should take the cars our for a ride. Hannah tells her she's fed up of her constant negativity.
Phil and Ruth are interviewing Amy and Patrick. They assure Phil is was just temporary accommodation. Amy says that their parents expect a lot of Patrick and he's feeling pressured. Phil says they must contact their parents, but Patrick says he'll do a runner.
Denny comes back just as Lou is closing up. Hannah is still cleaning cars. Denny suddenly produces a spray can and starts spraying the wall and the car Hannah is cleaning! Hannah tries to stop her, but Denny just sprays Hannah! She pushes her to the floor.
DENNY: What are you going to do now?!
