Libby wanting to know what is going on and Karl replying that there is something but they were hoping not to have to tell her.
Lib tells her parents that they are scaring her and they tell her the accident caused a lot of internal injuries and one of those was to her uterus. Libby thinks this means more pain, and Susan quickly reassures her that it won't mean pain. Karl tells her that she may not be able to have children. Libby asks "might not" or "will not" and he says no doctor will say "never", but the chances aren't good and then adds she may need further operations too, including a hysterectomy. Tearfully Libby accepts this and tells them that she is alive and that is what counts and does Drew know. Susan tearfully replies back that is true (about her being alive) and no, Drew doesn't know - they wanted her to hear it first. Karl then apologises for not telling her earlier they wanted to wait until she was getting better before telling her.
LIBBY: (tearfully) Lousy timing eh. I was just about to get married. Okay (big gulp of air) we probably wouldn't have had kids straight away. We hadn't really planned exactly when or how many or anything like that you know. We'd talked about it of course, nothing definite. (Another big gulp of air) This is just going to take a bit of getting used to.
Michelle and Bianca are checking to see if Damon has sent any emails but he hasn't and Michelle starts to get concerned. Bianca tells her he's probably fed up from hearing from her and she could email him instead but Michelle says that may scare him off. Lyn comes in and invites Bianca for food but Michelle asks if she can stay the night too, which Lyn agrees to.
Libby has just had her obs checked when Drew comes in with more flowers for Libby and notices the sombre atmosphere in the room and wants to know what is going on. Libby thanks him for the flowers and Susan and Karl conveniently leave to allow them to talk. Drew wants to know what is going on but Libby wants him to tell her about his day first.
Joe comes home after a shift in the taxi and exchanges pleasantries with Lyn and Steph before she leaves to have a shower. He asks how Steph is coping today and Lyn replies that she is still worried about Libby. Lyn spots the video he has in his hand and asks if he's hired it but he then tells Lyn that he found it laying on the pavement and thinks someone may have dropped it. They wonder what it could be but it doesn't have any labels on it, so they suggest they watch to see what it is.
Drew asks how definite the news is and she says that Karl said it was pretty definite and they may just have to get used to having no kids in their life. She asks him to go home as they both could do with the sleep and Drew tells her that the most important thing is that she is alive and it is okay about them not being able to have kids. Lib tells him she told the same thing to her parents.
Steph comes out of the shower and spots the tape Joe took home and puts it in the VCR. When it starts to play, it is revealed as some sort of surveillance recording. Lyn recognises one of the persons seen but it isn't their house, so Joe says he'll drop the tape off at the police in the morning.
No. 22 backyard
Lou comes out of the house and shouts on Drew to wake up as Drew fell asleep eventually outside after some stargazing. Lou asks what has happened so Drew tells him about Lib not being able to have kids and Lou asks how they both took the news. Drew replies that they are both okay before commenting why does things happen when they were going so well? Lou says there is no answer to that, just that sometimes things happen that knock the stuffing out of us.
A visibly shaken Steph is upset at having heard Libby's news. Lib tells her that it isn't the end of the world, as she hadn't thought about having kids before and jokingly says that it is an overpopulated world so maybe it is a good thing. Steph tells her that she doesn't mean that and Lib says she is fine and although it is a shock it will just take a bit of time getting used to it.
Lyn asks if Joe is taking the tape to the police today, he is, and as they have breakfast, they speculate as to what the recording was for. Michelle drags Bianca through to the livingroom as she has had an idea - secretly taping the scary house to see what he looks like and conveniently Bianca's dad has a camera they could use.
Steph comes round to see how Drew is following Lib's news. Drew gets upset at Steph talking about it and is a bit sharp with her.
Lou comes round with boxes of toy octopus' to store before selling and Drew is a bit sharp with him too about it, so Lou tells him not to take his frustrations out on people who care about him. He then suggests to Drew that he takes a few days off to spend with Libby.
Lyn is telling Steph why she came home for lunch but Steph is in a world of her own so. Lyn tells her the accident wasn't her fault but Steph says some people don't see it that way but a knock on the door interrupts their conversation. Steph answers the door and invites Drew in. After knocking back Lyn's offer of lunch, he apologises to Steph for being sharp with her and tells her he doesn't blame her for the accident - the person who did it got all they deserved as far as he is concerned and that she and Libby are just innocent victims. Steph asks if he has spoken to Libby, he tells her he has and that he is okay with her news, so Steph asks if they've *really* talked. Drew than admits no, they've scooted around it, so she tells him that they have to be honest with each other and Drew leaves to go speak to Libby.
Michelle and Bianca are peering over a fence, trying to get the best place to put the camera whilst still worried about being there. They quickly move to place the camera when Michelle notices that the front door is open as it is usually closed tight. Michelle thinks that something has happened but Bianca thinks it is a trap, but Michelle still wants to go in, and they head to the front door. Bianca chickens out as Michelle pushes the door further open and eventually enters it.
Drew brings yet more flowers to Libby whose room is already full of flowers. Drew is stalling and Lib asks if he is going to say anything, so he tells her he is looking for the right words to say. Lib asks about what.
DREW: I want you to understand that this doesn't change anything, not to us, ever. (Libby starts to cry) We've got each other and that is all that matters.
LIBBY: Of course it is.
DREW: We love each other, and that is what really matters.
LIBBY: You're right.
Michelle is now inside asking if anyone is there. She enters an office and Damon appears behind her.
