Pepper and Rosie are untangling party lights, for the engagement party. Frazer wonders why they need party lights for a day time party, but Pepper can't see the problem. As Pepper disappears to spread the lights out on the lawn, Rosie tells Frazer that Pepper was sleep walking again, Frazer knows as he heard her. Rosie wishes that she knew what was upsetting Pepper so much. Frazer says that he had a chat with her, and tells Rosie, that Pepper tried to convince him that she is jealous of their engagement, but Frazer was not convinced. Rosie however thinks that it could be the reason, as Pepper is a traditional girl at heart, hoping to meet the man of her dreams, so Rosie finds it easier to believe that Pepper might be jealous of their new-found happiness. Frazer is not so sure, he still reckons that there is more to it. Rosie heads outside, and a nervous Frazer asks her not to talk to Pepper about it, as she may have confided in him in confidence, and he is scared of Pepper if she finds out that he has been breaking that confidence.
The Garden of Number 30
Pepper is struggling with the fairy lights on the lawn, when Rosie comes out for a chat. Rosie goes to town, to tell Pepper how grateful she is for all her help, and assures her that she too will find true love. Pepper is quick to guess that Rosie has been talking to Frazer. Rosie tries to get to the bottom of it, and Pepper admits that she is not actually jealous, it was just something she said to Frazer, to give a reason for why she snapped at him. Rosie wonder's what it is that is bothering Pepper if it is not the engagement. Quick with another excuse Pepper says that she is maybe flaky as she is missing her dad. Rosie assumes that the stalking business has affected her more than she was letting on, and apologises to Pepper for not being a better friend and noticing sooner, she gives Pepper a hug, but the look on Pepper's face, suggests that there is still more to it, that Pepper is admitting to her friend.
A sullen looking Elle is nursing a coffee in the corner, and she reject's Ned's offer of company when he arrives, I guess Elle thinks that a cup of coffee would make better conversation. However Ned perseveres in his attempt to cheer her up. Ned thinks that she should be celebrating, but Elle says that she really doesn't want to talk about it. Ned leaves her to it, but Elle summons him back, and tells him to sit down, looks like she wants someone to talk to after all. Elle asks Ned to go to the engagement party as her date. Ned is suspicious of her motives, Elle tells him that she can't show up alone. Ned can see right through Elle, and she is forced to admit that she kissed Oliver, and she can't look Carmella in the face. Elle says that she hates herself, but Ned is reassuring towards her, he tells her that it takes two to tango, and when Elle says that she is a horrible person, a caring Ned tells her, that if that was true, she wouldn't be worried about kissing Oliver. Elle tells Ned that he is nice and she is nice, even though he has done bad things, he has made amends, and she thinks that makes him good. Ned tries to convince Elle that she is also good, but Elle disagrees, she tells him that she is Paul Robinson's daughter, bad at heart and she will never change.
Rosie and Pepper are watching on as Carmella and Oliver are all over each others. Carmella tells Oliver to have a shower, as he reeks of Elle's perfume, Oliver defensively asks what she is suggesting, as a nervous Pepper and Rosie look on. Carmella assures Oliver that she is not suggesting anything, she just assumes that they hugged after they got the contract, but there is guilt written all over Oliver's face as he agrees with her theory.
PEPPER: If my man stunk of another girl's perfume, I'd put it down to business too, monkey business.
ROSIE: This is Oliver we are talking about.
PEPPER: No it's Elle we're talking about, and lets face it, she's not exactly a walking advertisement for fidelity is she?
CARMELLA: No, she's changed, and she is actually becoming a really good friend.
PEPPER: Hmmm, of Oliver's. He's a man.
ROSIE: He is also a real sweetheart, and would never do anything to hurt Carmella.
It seems that Pepper is the only one who could see through Oliver's earlier act.
The General Store
A disgruntled Susan comes in to the store to confront Karl on his lies.
SUSAN: Lou Carpenter? I can handle you telling your boss that I'm your sister, even your older sister at a stretch, but to say that I am a single mother to eight children, to various different fathers, that is not on.
KARL: It was just a little fib, it's not eight, it's five.
SUSAN: No it's not, Rachel, Zeke, Ringo, Lolly, Bree, Mal, Libby, Bil...
KARL: No no, our three aren't yours.
KARL: No their mine, from a previous failed marriage, before I realised that I was a career minded bachelor at heart.
Karl apologises and tells Susan that he will make sure she won't bump into Davo again, but Susan has found something in Karl's shopping basket, to further poke fun at him- hair dye. Susan reads out the label in a joking manner as Karl tries to defend himself, saying that he thought the box of dye was teabags. Before Susan can make fun of him anymore, Harold comes over to them with Kerry. Susan jumps at the chance to play with Kerry, while Karl asks Harold how he is holding up. An upset Harold says that as his granddaughter has a baby, and is likely to spent a large part of her life in jail, how do they think he is holding up. Karl tries to assure Harold that Toadie is working really hard on the case. Harold says that the facts are still the same. Karl thinks that Harold is taking on too much, and suggests that maybe Kerry should go to Sky, but Harold says that he will not have that, as he doesn't want Kerry in the prison, he takes Kerry from Susan and leaves them.
Paul finds up a beaten up Fox on a park bench, and asks what happens, but Fox tells him to leave him alone. Paul wants to take Fox to a doctor, but still Fox is telling Paul to leave him alone. He doesn't want his help. Paul persists however, and asks Fox to come back to his place for some food and warmth. Fox aggressively tells Paul that he has changed his tune. Paul apologises for his earlier behaviour, but Fox is still rude to him. Paul says that it is his time to help him, and takes him back to his flat.
Rosie is bemoaning having to work on the day of her engagement party. Pepper tells her not to worry, as soon she will be her own woman, and jokingly answers the phone proclaiming it to be Rosetta Yeats and associates, but Rosie says that as much as she loves Frazer she will never change her surname.
The girls are interrupted by Harold and Kerry, he wants to have a word with Rosie, so Pepper excuses herself. Harold tells Rosie, that he doesn't want Kerry to go to Sky, she just wants what is best for Kerry. Rosie tells Harold that it is not for him to decide, if Sky wants to apply to have Kerry with her, it is her right. Harold asks if there is any way that he can prevent it, and Rosie tells him that he will need a legal injunction, Harold would have to apply to become Kerry's legal guardian.
Carmella asks Oliver for his help in what she should write in her engagement card to Rosie and Frazer, she wants it to be memorable. Oliver tells her to get her pen ready and dictates something to her.
OLIVER: Once upon a time, there was a girl called Rosie and a boy called Frazer, they met fell in love, which goes to show fairytales really do come true. All out love, Carmella and Oliver.
Carmella seems impressed by Oliver's idea, and says that it is hard to believe that she and Rosie both found someone so special. Oliver smiles and tells Carmella that he loves her, and he never ever wants to do anything to hurt her. Carmella doesn't think that he ever would.
Their kiss is interrupted by a prompt Karl and Susan, there for the engagement party. Frazer is the first to ask what has happened to his hair, though the others certainly seemed to have noticed. Karl denies that anything is different, though it is more than clear that he has been using the aforementioned hair dye. Not wanting to be rude, Frazer concedes that it was probably the light, and now Karl's hair looks normal.
Harold is still badgering Rosie about the situation, but she tells him that as Sky's lawyer she is not able to advise him any further. Harold is not appeased however, he asks Rosie how she can think that jail would be the best place for Kerry. Rosie tries to offer an objective opinion, but Harold doesn't agree. He says that he wants to apply for custody, he doesn't think that Sky is thinking straight, and he thinks he will have to be the bad guy for everyone's sake. He leaves with the intention of finding another solicitor.

Ned tells Olly not to be so thick, he and Elle are not going out, Elle is doing whatever she can to hide the fact that she is in love with Oliver. It seems that this is not what Oliver wants to hear right now, as it seems that he is battling his feelings for Elle.
In the Garden
Rosie looks on top of the world, as she sits on Frazer's knee with her arms around him. Frazer tells his new fiancée that he has a confession to make, he tells her that when she was running late before he had a horrible feeling that she wasn't going to turn up. Rosie jokes that she wasn't she was booking the first bus out of there, and Frazer takes that as an opportunity to make fun of Pepper's OTT speech.

He tells Elle that he loves Carmella, but he thinks that he is starting to fall in love with her too. Elle is more than a little shocked from the reaction on her face.
