Darcy tells Susan he is up for day release soon, but needs to be sponsored by a victim of his crime.
Darcy tells Susan that he needs her to trust him if she is going to be able to sponsor him as whatever he does on the outside would affect both him and her. She tells him she is unable to trust him, and he thanks her for giving him the chance to even ask, telling her that he understands. He gets up and walks back inside, leaving Susan sitting on the bench.
Boyd, Serena and Sky are sitting on the couch watching a Jackie Chan movie. They agree that none of them have seen Stingray for a while. Serena mentions that he probably doesn't want to see her anyway.
Karl opens and starts to pour a bottle of champagne, while other fire party poppers to welcome Lou home.
Boyd and Sky discuss the way Stingray could perhaps have been affected by the drugs, but aren't sure if his mental activity is affected as well as his physical activity. They suggest that perhaps Serena should try and find out, but she isn't too keen on the idea. Boyd worries about how he's been affected, but Serena recons they had to give him something. Sky doesn't think it's his fault.
Lou is continuing to celebrate his freedom, and is happy to see both Susan and Darren arrive. Susan tells him that Darcy sends his wishes, while Darren goes over to see a rather quiet Libby, neither knowing what to say to each other. Lou thanks his friends for being there to support him, and tells them that being on the inside has shown him to look out for the good things in life. He raises a toast to Toadie. Darren and Libby look on.
Susan discusses with Libby whether she should let Darcy out on day release. Libby claims that Darcy has blown his second chance, but Susan feels that she should give him a chance to prove himself. Libby asks if Tom has said anything. Susan points out to Libby that she gave Darren a second chance. Libby says she no longer believes that Darren did the robberies, but doesn't see how it will change things now.
Darren helps Lou to close up the pub and congratulates him on his release, as well as warn him about how people will now view him. Lou says that they should look to the future. Sitting down to a drink, Darren confesses that he is saying goodbye and has sold the business. Lou asks about Libby, and Darren shows him the ring he bought, asking if he knew anywhere if he could sell it.
Stingray asks if he can stay rather than go to school, and sit and read. Toadie asks why he doesn't want to go to school. Stingray confesses that he's scared what people will think of him after loosing Connor's baby. Toadie asks if he's started his medication, and what it's been like. Stingray confesses that no one has yelled at him for a few days and asks if that what being normal feels like.
Stingray arrives late to class, where the students giggle. Susan asks why he's late, and says she'll talk later, continuing to start the lesson. Some of the students start to pick on another and encourage Stingray to join in, but he just sits and takes note of what Susan says.
Karl shows Lou the picture of Izzy's ultrasound. Lou jokes about starting the baby album before it's even born. He continues to talk about the video and how you can see them moving around, but Karl admits that the video machine chewed it up. Harold comes and joins them and Lou tells them that he's going to visit Lolly for a while. Karl asks if she knows he's been staying at 'Her Majesty's Hotel', but he says no. Harold says she'll be fine, as kids are very forgiving and he's doing the right thing now. Darren walks in to fix up his tab. Karl leaves. Lou asks if he's doing the right thing. Darren says she needs someone she can trust all the way.
Serena finds Stingray sitting in a classroom during lunch, and asks if they're still OK, even though they haven't spent much time together recently. He says yes. Boyd arrives and asks what he's up to. He says he's trying to draw but not having much luck, so they take him off to the Coffee Shop, to start the next phase of 'Wake up Erinsborough: the coffee swap'.
Serena and Stingray orders four chocolate milkshakes at the counter to allow Sky and Boyd to switch the coffee lids back. They joke that if Susan has a regular coffee, they should be out of English pretty early. Boyd asks Stingray about a friends new deck, but he doesn't really show much interest. Boyd and Stingray leave, and Sky asks Serena why Stingray is being so quiet. Serena just says that he's keeping his head down.
Susan sits down on a bench with the paper and a coffee. Karl jogs past, and stops to rest. Susan starts to make fun of him, but he claims with a baby on the way he needs to be fit again. Susan asks Karl if he can give her his non-judgemental opinion on something.
Lou visits Libby while working, and tells her that he did a lot of thinking whilst in prison and that one should never throw their chances away. She asks where this is leading and he tells her that she should give Darren another chance. She tells him it's none of his business, but he tells her that he saw the ring before he told him he was leaving. She says they need time, but Lou says that he is leaving now and that there is no time. She asks where he is, and Lou tells he he's in the process of selling the business to a teacher at the school. He helps her establish who it is, and Libby rushes off.
Karl tells Susan that she was mad to see him in the first place, but he admits blood is thicker than water. Susan asks why she feels like the guilty one. He tells her, she's always taken on other people problems. She admits that it was awful seeing him in there, but that she wasn't able to trust him for day release. Karl says she did the right thing, as he stole, lied and cheated. Susan wonder's whether there's a chance he has changed, but Karl says it is unlikely.
Walking home from school, the others ask Stingray what he's going to do for his art project, but it appears that he has no enthusiasm for it. Sky spots Libby's car and comments how cool it is, but we see that Libby is having trouble starting it. Boyd offers to help by pushing. Sky tells Libby how much she likes it and inquires how much it cost. Libby says it was a gift from her husband. Sky apologises it, but Libby seems in a rush. Sky says that when she's rich she's going to get a car just like it, but when it doesn't start again, Libby jumps out and tells her she can have it, handing over the keys and running off down the street.
Susan continues to wonder if being in prison will have changed Darcy. Karl says she's far to forgiving, and he knows. She agrees and they share a quiet moment. They get up to leave, and agree that they will remain friends no matter what happens with the divorce.
Boyd, Sky, Stingray and Serena are sitting in the 'green bug' with the radio playing. Boyd recons it is better than Christmas, but Serena tells her that she shouldn't accept it.
Karl visits Darcy, Darcy tries to thank him, but Karl tells Darcy that he shouldn't have asked Susan to help get him release and to leave her alone. Darcy admits it was wrong, but that he was desperate enough to hope she believed in him. Karl tells him that she doesn't and neither does he. Karl warns Darcy to stay away from Susan.
