Lolly mistakenly thinks that she has seen Tom and Susan Kissing.
Karl tells Susan that he finds Tom being in Erinsborough unsettling.
Toadie tells Steph that Terrence told him that Dee has spoken to him beyond the grave, to tell him that she does not approve of what Toadie and Steph are doing.
Oliver and Carmella are moving furniture onto the street, she wants to get rid of the furniture as she is spring cleaning, and she thinks that it is all junk. They are talking about Napier, Oliver still wants to go to see him, as he is still a family friend in a coma.
Toadie arrives, and seems annoyed that all his furniture is on the street, when Carmella tells him that they are getting rid of it, he tells them to put it back, because Dee bought the furniture for him. Carmella protests, and Toadie gets angry just in time for Steph to witness Toadies anger, and outburst about Dee. Steph gives Toadie a friendly smile, but it seems that she is uncomfortable with the way that Toadie has reacted.
Rachel and Zeke are pleased to see that Karl is home, and rush to hug him, but there seems to be an atmosphere between Susan and Karl. Zeke and Rachel are keen to ask about Holly, and if Izzy and Holly are going to visit, but Susan is not pleased. Karl apologises for not calling more while he was away, but he assumed that Susan was OK. Susan tells him not to assume.
SUSAN: Karl, if you don't know me well enough to understand how much your silence would hurt me...
KARL: Here we go mind reading games.
SUSAN: Don't you dare say that I'm over-reacting.
KARL: What else am I supposed to do, I can barely remember what it is that I am supposed to have done.
SUSAN: You had a baby with another woman.
Karl is stunned into silence by this comment, that was an obvious answer was it not Karl. Susan continues to tell him how it is.
SUSAN: And all of this, our life, our family will never be the same again.
KARL: That's not true.
SUSAN: Holly is a part of your life which has nothing to do with me. She's a living reminder of your relationship with Isabelle, how do you think that makes me feel?
Karl understandably has nothing to say.
The General Store
Bree and Zeke are discussing the way that Karl has treated her, Overhearing the conversation Lolly, says that Susan is not so perfect herself. Bree and Zeke ask her to get to the point, and Lolly tells them that she saw Susan and Tom kissing in Tom's tent at the camp. Bree and Zeke are shocked at this news.
Ringo seems uncomfortable discussing his teacher's love life with Rachel, so she apologises and suggests a swimming lesson instead, and the two excitedly rush to the pool.
As Carmella tries to run out of the house, she tells Oliver that she has abandoned her idea for a spring clean, she would rather go jogging. Oliver reprimands her for being such a cow to Toadie, and tells her that she is not herself and he thinks the pills are to blame. Oliver tells Carmella that he is not putting up with it and wants the pills, but Carmella refuses to give them to him, telling her that the pills are fine, she is fine and she is the one with the problem.
OLIVER: I look at you and I wonder where the gorgeous girl I fell in love with has gone.
CARMELLA: Jogging, see ya.
Carmella runs out the door on an exasperated Oliver, who looks less than impressed.
Paul and Elle meet, he tells her that he loves her and he misses her. She tells her that he can take what he needs and then he can go, Paul asks her to at least talk about it, but slips up by saying that he has been plotting her downfall, he quickly backtracks and says that he was joking, asking her to at least give him a chance to talk to her about it. Elle reluctantly returns to the house, letting Paul come with her for a chat.
As Carmella returns from her jogging, she sees that Oliver is putting boxes out on to the street, and she asks him why he has been busy. He says that has had a sudden burst of energy, because he has been taking some of her pills. Carmella is annoyed, and tells him that they will have a bad effect on him, as they were prescribed to her, he tells her that she has to stop taking them or they are finished. Carmella is not going to rise to his ultimatum, instead being very rude to him, and telling him to butt out of her life, before she turns and leaves him staring open mouthed at her bad manners.
It seems that Susan is also in the mood for spring cleaning, despite the fact that it is autumn in the Southern hemisphere, but I guess cleaning is a good way to de-stress, after her earlier heart to heart with Karl. Karl tells her that he is going to go for a walk, when he asks her to join him, she tellls him that she is too busy, there is obviously still an atmosphere.
KARL: Susan, I understand why you are so upset, I just want to fix it.
SUSAN: She's Isabelle's child Karl, there's no getting around that.
KARL: She's my child too, I want her to know you, starting now. I want you to be part of her life, I want you to influence her, I want her to benefit from all the things about you I love so much.
SUSAN: That would require me to get down off my high horse.
KARL: I didn't want to be the one to say it. I'm back now, we can work this out.
Susan and Karl seem to have broken the ice, and they give each other a loving hug, but something tells me that the happiness and light won't last long, especially when Zeke gets home and tells Susan that he needs to speak to her alone. Susan says that anything that he has to say to her, he can say in front of Karl, so a sheepish Zeke tells her that there is a rumour going around that she kissed Mr Scully at camp. Susan and Karl exchange shocked expressions.
After the commercial break, Susan, Karl and Zeke are sitting on the sofa, while Susan is reassuring Zeke, that nothing happened between she and Tom, she promises him. Zeke seems happy with her explanation and goes off to inspect his fish tank. When he has gone, Karl seems to want an elaboration on her explanation, and Susan is forced to tell him, that something almost happened at the camp. Karl is mad, and asks Susan if she wanted something to happen. Susan says nothing, which in itself is as good as an admission that she did want something to happen, and this does nothing to allieviate Karl's rage. The pair continue to argue about it, which ends up with Susan blurting out that unlike him she can control herself, and immediately it seems that she has regretted saying so much.
Lolly is anxious about what is going on in Number 28, and wonders if she should call Zeke, but Bree tells her that Zeke will be out when he is ready. Lolly continues to assure Bree that she didn't make it up, but Bree is not believing her. When Rachel and Ringo appear Bree tells them that Lolly has been visiting her magical world of make believe again, and tells them that Lolly has accused Tom and Susan of kissing in the tent. Rachel is livid with Lolly telling her not to make up lies about Susan, but Ringo defends Lolly, saying that she told him as soon as it happened, and they decided not to tell anyone, so nobody will get hurt. Rachel storms off, giving Lolly one last angry glare, and Bree congratulates Lolly and Ringo before disappearing herself.
Over outside Number 30, Steph meets a gloomy Toadie, sitting moping on his sofa. Steph sits down with him, and tells him it's OK, she feels the same way about her wedding ring. Toadie says that although it seems like a stupid couch, Dee and he had their first kiss on it. He says that Terrence has freaked him out. Steph tells him that if he feels that it is too soon for them to be moving in together then that's fine, and she also jokes that maybe Toadie should be around to protect Susan from the advances of her sleazy Uncle Tom. Toadie says that he thinks he is the problem, because he got scared and freaked out. Steph tells him that although they both have baggage, it shouldn't stop them building a future together, Toadie seems to be quick to agree, and the two of them agree that they should maybe get some new baggage together, and get rid of all the current baggage that they have. I can only assume that they are talking about their furniture. With a kiss it seems that things are back on track for Steph and Toadie moving in together.
Still in Ramsay Street, the camera pans in towards Number 22's driveway where Paul and Elle are emerging after their talk. Paul protests that he has changed, but Elle tells him that she doesn't believe him, he still thinks that he is better than everybody else, and coldly tells him to go away. Before he does Paul sheepishly has to ask her if he can borrow some money, and Elle who seems disgusted that he would ask, says no, much to Paul's disdain, but letting pride get the better of him he turns to walk away. Elle it seems has an attack of the conscience though, and tells him to wait a second, before giving him $100. Paul takes a look at the measly sum, and without so much as a thank you takes the money and leaves. Leaving Elle to guiltily watch him walk away with virtually nothing.
Things are really taking pace with Toadie and Steph moving in, as they are there to tell Susan and Karl that he is leaving. Toadie thanks Susan and Karl for having him, and they confirm that it was a pleasure, as he is a lot cleaner these days, something which Steph is glad to hear.
When a happy Steph and Toadie leave with his belongings to set up home at #32, Susan and Karl still seem to be snapping at each other.
KARL: I'd like to say something about new beginnings, but cold hard reality keeps getting in the way.
SUSAN: Stop being a drama queen Karl.
KARL: Sorry, apparently I can't control myself. You know the whole time I was in England, you knew exactly where I was, what I was doing and why I was doing it. (Yes, you were touring with your band to make a few extra bucks, but you never seem to mention that) I can't say the same about you and Tom.
SUSAN: I'm so sick of your complications.
KARL: And Tom's not complicated? How can it be what we had just a few weeks ago, can unravel so easily.
SUSAN: Well don't put all this on to me.
KARL: Well I have to say, I'm tired of shouldering all the blame.
SUSAN: I didn't actually do anything with Tom.
KARL: But, I actually did something with Izzy, that's the bottom line is it?
SUSAN: Well not just Izzy.
KARL: Oh goodness me, how far are we going to go back then, I stole Greg Rafferty's marble bag in kindy, do we include that?
SUSAN: Sure why not?
KARL: I am not going to deny Holly's existence.
SUSAN: Oh, cut the sanctimonious rubbish Karl, nobody's asking you to, but don't use Tom's name just to score cheap points, not while Holly is a living breathing reminder of your mistakes.
Karl rightly looks guilty for starting the argument in the first place.
It seems like Toadie and Steph are having fun moving him in, he assures her he is fine with things, he finally has the closure that he needed.
Lolly watches on, as Ringo pursues Rachel to apologise, he works his charm on Rachel, and he soon has her smiling again. He apologises for being so dysfunctional, he tells her that he really cares about her, and just didn't want to see her upset again, and a relenting Rachel tells him in that case she has to forgive him, and the two kiss.
As Lolly, Bree and Zeke look on, Bree seems delighted to proclaim that it looks like they have made up, but the look on Lolly's face suggests that perhaps she is not that delighted. Zeke tries to move in for a smooch with Bree, suggesting that they should maybe make up too, but totally missing the point (perhaps on purpose) Bree tells him that they are not even fighting, and says that she has to go home to protect Janelle from 'That spooky spiritualist' who is coming over for another session.
When Bree leaves, Zeke tells Lolly not to worry about Karl and Susan, Lolly tells her that she is really sorry, that she made a mistake, she swears to him that she wasn't making it up. Zeke believes her and tells her not to worry. Lolly looks at him, and asks why everyone is not as nice as him, and then plants a kiss on his cheek, and Zeke looks chuffed that someone wants to kiss him.
Toadie and Steph are making up a bed in the lounge, Toadie is moaning that he is a prawn, it seems that he was freaked out about sleeping in Max's bed. Steph tells him not to worry, and that they will sort it out tomorrow. As they get into their makeshift bed, things are a bit awkward, but cute, as Toadie tells Steph that he can only sleep on his right side, to which Steph says is fine, as she doesn't like sleeping near the door anyway, it's kind of a protection thing. Toadie asks her what she needs protecting from, and a girlish Steph says that she needs protecting from Robber's and stuff, Toadie finds this amusing, as he playfully teases her for being helpless, and gives her a big hug. While they are snuggled up together, Toadie says that he is feeling less freaked out. And Steph seems to be getting a bit more cosy.
STEPH: Are you thinking what I'm thinking?
TOADIE: Hope so.
Steph dives under the covers, and it seems for a moment that Neighbours is going to get a little friskier than usual, but when Steph emerges with the remote control, it seems what the pair were thinking about was obviously not what came to my mind.
STEPH: Footie's on.
TOADIE: I love the footie, come to me gods of war.
As the pair settle in to watch the footie, it seems to be happy all round, as Bob jumps on the bed and Toadie gives him a big hug.
There is a new couch at Number 30, when Oliver gets there, but he gets in to find Carmella standing on the coffee table with a broom in her hand, trying to reach the corners for dust. Oliver can see that she is a bit spaced out on the pills, and asks her if she wants him to get the dust instead, but she says that she is fine and is having fun, that is right before she falls off the table, and luckily Oliver is there to catch her. Carmella seems to come to her senses a bit, and wonders why she is doing things like that, and Oliver concludes that it's the pills. For the first time Carmella seems to agree, and says that maybe she should get a second opinion from another doctor.
As Susan is getting dinner ready, Karl is trying to find the USB cable, so that the whole family can record a video message to Holly. Susan thinks that he is bulldozing her with it, but Karl says that she will have to get used to it, as he is not going to abandon his child.
SUSAN: Is that what living with you is going to be like from now on? A non-stop obsession with a baby on the other side of the world.
KARL: Don't turn this into an us and them situation.
SUSAN: I'm not.
KARL: Yes you are. Let me tell you something. I'm not going to lose contact with my child for anyone, including you.
Later on at dinner conversation is fraught, as the atmosphere seems to awful. Susan seems to be pleased when a knock on the door relieves her from the table for a while. It's Paul who is there to ask if he can resume his teaching position at Erinsborough High, Susan tells him that he will have to speak to Tom Scully about it, and as Susan and Paul continue their conversation at the door, Karl seems pleased to learn from Rachel, that Paul has been cheated out of his fortune.
As Susan sits down again, Karl asks what gossip he has missed. Rachel tells him that she and Ringo are now an official item, which seems to please Karl, and Zeke mentions Terrence the 'creepy spiritualist guy' who is reckoning that he can communicate with the dead. Karl doesn't seem to buy it, and checks that Rachel and Zeke haven't been sucked in, they assure him that they haven't. Zeke tells him that Terrence mentioned something about Alex, and then immediately seems to regret that he said anything, especially when Rachel nips him under the table. The others are not keen to tell Karl what Terrence has told them, saying that it is really silly, but Karl insists they tell him, and Susan admits, that Terrence said that Alex thinks she has made a mistake re-marrying him. Karl has a face like thunder on learning this news, but says nothing.
