- Boyd realising it was Lana that Sky kissed.
- Steph seeing Jack and Izzy kissing at Cube.
Izzy breaks the kiss and grabs Jack's hand, wanting for them to back to her place. Jack declines, not wanting to be used "by someone like you" and this unsettles Izzy who pushes Jack, before running away. Steph appears besides Jack and also gives him a push for taking advantage of Izzy when she's extremely vulnerable. He tries to explain but she doesn't want to hear it and takes off after Izzy.
Steph tells Izzy she saw her with Jack...but she is not here to spread more gossip, she wants to talk, help her about her baby. Izzy, extremely defensive sharply replies she's over it and she doesn't need her concern.
IZZY: Well guess what? I'm not denying anything. I lost my baby. She's dead.
STEPH: You can grieve.
IZZY: I am and I'm over it! What do you want from me?
Izzy begins to freak out, yelling and trying to attack Steph - however Steph restrains her and soon Izzy's anger turns into emotional tears as she breaks down and Steph comforts her.
Lana is in the middle of closing, when Boyd enters and starts accusing Lana of leading Sky on, knowing full well that she liked to take things to the extreme.
LANA: You can go on thinking the evil lezzo ruined your life or you can know the truth.
She explains that Sky is the one that kissed her and she was just as surprised as he was. She doesn't harbour those kinds of feelings for Lana, but was rather reading too much into it. "She just experimented on me," she just got used apparently.
LANA: She loves ideas more than she cares about people.
She is so sorry that this happened, she thought they were the perfect couple. Boyd finally agrees, saying it sounds like Sky and offers to help Lana close up the shop.
Slumped against the wall, Izzy tells Steph of all the things she had wanted for the baby. Even though she hated the pregnancy at first, she grew to love it after she stopped being so scared.
IZZY: She was gonna love me and I was going to love her and we were going to have a lot of fun and do everything together.
Her and Karl both loved the idea of having a baby, he thought she'd make a really good mother..."Then I killed her." Perhaps, even a small evil part of her didn't really want her and that's why she fell...Steph just holds her hand, and leads her out of the bathroom.
Boyd tells Lana some Sky story about her and a customer, stating how she always wanted to have her own way to prove a point. Lana agrees, just another example of her playing games with people. In the middle of their conversation, Sky enters but they do not see her, but she hears them. She sadly looks at a piece of paper and leaves it down before leaving. Lana and Boyd pop out to see who it was and notice the drawing Sky left, both not caring about the cartoon that she left.
On the couch with some chocolates, Izzy tells Steph it wasn't Jack's fault as she, the tart, pressed him pretty hard. Steph sighs, and asks why Karl has gone to away, when they should be supporting one another. Have they split up?
STEPH: Izzy, why has Karl gone to Queensland?
IZZY: To drink in the warm climate?
Izzy feels she can't really support anyone, and Karl has Susan anyway. "Karl and Susan, till death do they party." Steph knows that is not true, because Karl loves Izzy, baby or no baby, she has seen it. Izzy questions Steph's concern, she has barely made an effort in the past...Steph replies she envies a lot about Izzy and they are family now, so "she'd better get used to it, you tart."
Max quietly shuts off the tv from a sleeping Izzy on the couch. He hears Boyd trying to sneak his way in the house and begins to tell him that even though he's going through a hard time now, he still needs to concentrate on his school work. He needs to let himself heal and goes back to bed. Boyd looks less than convinced at his choice of words, when he hears Izzy agreeing with Max. Izzy explains that Max used to be a punk...though a pretty wussy one as he lasted for a few months. She asks Boyd if it's really over between him and Sky and he confirms it, he hates Sky for her actions. Although he will hurt, Izzy concedes it's better to stop it now than to commit to something he will hate in the long run, easy to avoid the complications.
The next morning Boyd agonises over 'the goals of enlightenment' which has yet to write about and no real clue about. Max then reads out something from the textbook about the age of enlightenment and hands him the book.
Izzy asks if Steph told him about how hard she went at it last night.
MAX: There's no shame in being emotional.
IZZY: Try drunk and disorderly.
She doesn't have to pretend that last night didn't happen, it was important for her to go through this. She shrugs it off, wanting to apologise to Steph as she thinks Max is making too much out of this. He disagrees, saying Izzy is making too much of this.
Talking to Sky and Lana, Susan can't understand why they are setting themselves up for misery and failure with their less than impressive papers. They both promise to try harder and she gives them to the end of the week to rewrite them. Before going, she has notices that their friendship has suffered and hopes that they can make it up. The signs of friendship are still there if they look for it - after all, you don't get that many friends in your life, it's silly to throw away their friendship.
Jack apologies to Izzy about last night, but Izzy says she's the one who is sorry. He guesses she was just upset about the baby and she nods. She's over the worst of it and moving onwards and upwards. She didn't mean to drag him down, but Jack understands. After all, "for what it's worth, spinning out is one of my other areas of expertise". If she wants to get stronger and happier she's gotta stop beating up on herself, she should maybe try it.
At their lockers, Sky attempts to make some small talk about Dickens and their essay...she finally brings up the sketch which Lana got. Sky's got some more ideas and thought they could have coffee later to discuss it. Lana stops her saying she can't be friends any more. Even though Sky is sorry, there is nothing she can do except leave Lana alone and let her move on with her life. Sky is shattered.
Jack's attempts at convincing Max to let Lyn move in with them prove to be unsuccessful. They already tried it once, and it was just too stressful, they are better off living apart. Even though she could baby-sit for a potential Max/Steph baby, it'd still be "nine months living with a white tornado". Yes she's a clean freak, but that can come in handy. Max wonders why Jack won't move in with her, if he is so worried about her becoming lonely in a small flat.
JACK: What if I want chicks around and I want to...you know.
MAX: Nice try Jack, no banana.
With Sky at the door, Boyd is not keen to talk to her. Sky tries to apologise to him, but he does not want to hear it. She knows that she made a stupid dumb mistake and she hurt him and Lana, but it's killing her, she loves him so much. He agrees that he's hurting too and she pounces, if he didn't love her, he wouldn't be hurting would he? She promises she'll do anything to make it up to him...but Boyd is firm, and shuts the door. Sky silently cries outside.
Alone, Susan wonders what is available for dinner - Izzy suggests the chicken salad, she just made some up for herself anyway. Izzy tells she knew Susan helped Karl through a rough patch, but Susan makes it clear she was there to just listen. Izzy understands, she just wanted to thank her as they have both been through a lot. She also understands that they're friends, they are important to each other after all these years.
Susan hopes she understands Karl does love her and that she'd never interfere in their relationship and Izzy dryly replies like how she didn't interfere in their marriage when it was rocky? She didn't care about any damn boundaries. "They have different values," Susan simply says and Izzy can't believe she is being so nice. She wants to know if Susan still loves Karl, after all he is so caring.
IZZY: If you wanted to be with him I wouldn't stand in the way
SUSAN: No, no. Isabel, I only love Karl in that I care about him and the people that he loves and he loves you.
If he did love her so much, than why did he go to Queensland? Susan understands that they're both suffering, but he does love her. Even though she lost their baby? Izzy asks? She thinks she doesn't deserve him.
SUSAN: He wants you, Isabel, he loves you.
IZZY:(cries) And I lost our little girl, our beautiful little girl.
SUSAN: I know. Come on, shhh.
Susan gives her a hug and they both cry.
