Summary/Images by: Tracy C/Emily
Boyd overhearing talk in TGS about a missing sugar dispenser.
Janae telling Ned that Charlotte can have Boyd.
Steph finding Boyd's letter announcing he is taking off with Charlotte.
Boyd showing Charlotte his life savings and pledging that he's in it with her and her reminding him that he can't go back.
Somewhere outside
Charlotte questions Boyd whether he is really up for forging ahead with a new life and Boyd reaffirms that he is totally up for it, adding that they are similar too - they both make mistakes. She still doesn't truly believe him, so Boyd blurts out that he killed a man.
Toadie's office
Harold, Toadie and Steph are talking about Charlotte and Boyd and Harold wonders if Charlotte was the one responsible for killing Terrance. After a bit of discussion as to why she'd stick around after the fact, Harold pieces together that it must have something to do with Sky taking the blame for it. Harold then begins to accuse Boyd of being in it as much as Charlotte but Steph defends her stepson, reminding Harold that Boyd has been a mess since Max's breakdown.
HAROLD: If he knows something.
STEPH: This is Boyd Harold, he's not evil. Sky was his very first love and he's always going to care about her.
TOADIE: Alright. Whatever the story, when the law catches up with him, he's in big trouble.
The General Store
Janae tells Ned about the garage now being in Timmins hands but he is more concerned about eating her leftover food because he is broke and can't afford to feed himself and Janae takes pity on him and offers to pay him for training her, which he reluctantly accepts.
Steph comes in to ask Janae questions about Boyd (once she gets past Janelle that is) but she can't help because she didn't even know he was dating Charlotte. Janae wonders what Boyd has done and Steph replies "something pretty stupid."
Somewhere outside
Boyd tells Charlotte that he got some stick one day when he was looking for Max and literally laid into the guy, not stopping until it was too late and took off back to the mainland where he later heard that the guy died a week later in hospital.
BOYD: You might be on the run for fraud but that doesn't compare to the mess I'm in.
CHARLOTTE: Maybe not.
Boyd gives her the opportunity to go ahead without him but she turns down his offer.
The General Store
Steph discusses with the Timmins' what Boyd has done but Janae can't help provide any clues about why Boyd has done this but wishes Steph good luck as she leaves.
Bree and Ned try to put the boot into Boyd but Janae defends her ex before leaving to go to work.
Sky has a barrel load of visitors but Toadie dampens their hopes of Sky getting out because there is no evidence linking Charlotte to the crime scene and it is Sky's word against the evidence. To everyone's aghast, Toadie suggests that Sky pleads guilty to manslaughter in the hope of doing a deal and the prospect of being out of prison in 5 years.
Ned comes to Janae's rescue when she is having trouble with a wheel but it is her worries about Boyd that is causing more concern. They talk about her love-life and Ned assures her that the next time will be better but Janae is sworn off men in favour of her career and totally misses the fact Ned is literally drooling over her!
The prosecutor Mr Reynolds (named after AG Jen for those who didn't know) has joined the trio to talk about the case and dismisses Toadie's hopes that the trial can be delayed to allow for the investigation to continue. He also dismisses Toadie's hopes of a manslaughter plea and instead offers Sky 15 years with parole after 10. Toadie suggests 10 years with parole after 5 given the murder weapon and Reynolds offers his final offer - 12 with parole after 7 years before leaving.
Scarlet Bar
Janae and her shadow come into the bar for lunch but she loses Ned to go and talk to Steph about Boyd. She admits to Steph that she is too is puzzled by Boyd's behaviour and doesn't believe he is into anything dodgy, which confirms Steph's theory too.
Steph's phone starts to ring however it isn't Boyd but Max and Steph lets it ring out because she can't face telling Max what Boyd has done while in her care. Janae says that Max won't blame her for what has happened but the look on Steph's face as she cuddles Charlie suggests she doesn't believe that.
Caravan Park
Charlotte isn't pleased with the location Boyd has found for them because it is just outside of Melbourne. Before agreeing with her, he secretly hits the record button on his MP3 player and goes to make a cuppa. He comes out of the caravan with a sugar dispenser and asks how many sugars she wants and Charlotte's first reply isn't to say how many but where did he get the dispenser from. Boyd replies her bag and she reluctantly says 1 sugar and he pours it into the cup as he makes his way back beside her.
Sitting comfortably, he talks again about the person he killed - the sound that their body made when it hit the floor and the fact he knew the guy was going to die. Charlotte isn't exactly looking very comfortable sitting in her seat and Boyd continues, saying that the guilt really gets to him.
BOYD: You know, since I told you it kind of feels like something's been lifted. It's not going to bring him back, I know that.
Charlotte asks him to shut up but refusing to say why. Boyd coaxes her by saying that she can tell him anything and that it is obviously eating her up.
CHARLOTTE (tearfully): The guy that was killed in the shop, Terrance, he was my partner. I killed him.
Sky is very despondent at the deal Mr Reynolds offered as it dawns on her what she is going to miss out on as Kerry gets older. They both plead for Toadie to do something but he spells it out to them - he needs new evidence or its Sky's word against the weight of evidence there is. Harold brings up what would happen if Sky were to plead not guilty and Toadie delivers the grim reality if found guilty - she won't get out for 25 years.
Caravan Park
Charlotte spills everything out to Boyd about what she and Terrance got up to and about Terrance trying it on with someone in Adelaide. Boyd brings up that he also tried it on with Sky too before quickly reassuring Charlotte that he is on her side. She is still finding it hard to trust Boyd (even if she's just blabbed everything!) so he reminds her that she has just as much dirt on him, which seems to 'cheer' her up and she resumes opening up to him about how and why she killed Terrance.
Boyd asks her if she feels better telling someone and she confirms she does, adding that they are even in the murder stakes. He then subtly mentions that he'd feel weird having someone go down for his "murder" and Charlotte, while sympathetic for Sky being in jail isn't keen on swapping places.
Janelle and Bree are back in with the others as they debate what to do following Mr Reynolds' visit. Bree is rather upset at the thought of Sky spending time in jail but Sky gets through to her using an analogy of a story that doesn't have a happy ending despite wishing there was one. "So you're going to plead guilty," interprets Toadie and Harold immediately hugs his granddaughter.
Caravan Park
Charlotte is starting to freak out that they will be discovered and goes to put her belongings in the car while telling Boyd what the plan is - a non-stop journey to Darwin. He calms her down into at least stay for one for night before getting back onto the subject of confessing to the authorities. Charlotte isn't any keener on swapping places with Sky and is beginning to wonder why Boyd is mentioning it as we hear the two-tone police siren in the background. He tries to assure her it is innocent but she isn't for sticking around and tells him to get his things pronto!
Boyd goes back into the caravan to get his stuff, remembering to put the MP3 player into his jacket pocket...but leaving the crucial evidence of the sugar dispenser lying in the van.
Road somewhere
The police are in hot pursuit of Charlotte's car but she isn't stopping despite the police car being right on her tail. She tries to lose them by turning into another street but the police car just continues following them. Taking drastic action, Boyd grabs the steering wheel to get her to pull over but all it seems to do is to cause the car to move from side to side as it speeds down the road. Boyd tries again with the steering wheel and this time the car skids to a halt...after crashing into a tree and we see Boyd hit the windscreen (although not shattering it).
The police officers quickly head to the crashed car and both occupants are out cold, with Boyd looking quite seriously hurt as he may not have had a seat belt on when the car crashed since he was trying to get the car to stop.
Commercial break over and an unconscious Boyd is wheeled away on a stretcher with his neck in a brace as the policeman arrests Charlotte. She asks if Boyd is going to live as he is placed into the ambulance and the officer smarmily remarks that she should have thought of that before crashing the car. Charlotte now tries to pin the blame on Boyd for going crazy; adding that he murdered someone in Tasmania and thought she was next on the list.
