Tom arriving and mistaking Zeke for a younger version of Karl
Janae telling Ned she needs to tell Mickey the truth
Paul passing on a message to Oliver that Alan Napier is awake and is asking for him
Napier telling Oliver that he's his grandfather and his parents aren't who he thinks they are.
Elle is trying to work out what it means for Oliver if Napier is his grandfather but Oliver is adamant that he's delirious, his parents would never have kept something like that from him. Elle is less sure, every family has its secrets and why would Napier say it if it weren't true? Oliver blames it on the confusion and disorientation of coming out of a coma.

A light in the pool is sparking and making fuzzy noises (how does one describe it?) Rosie is walking down the steps to take a swim but is interrupted by Frazer who comes outside and tells her that Toadie is on the phone- he has news about Frazer's case and it sounds like good news. She puts her towel on the railing and goes upstairs to get the phone. As she leaves we hear more buzzing and flashes from the pool.
Then we hear Karl and Susan on the other side of the fence calling for Tom-it appears they've lost him. They look over the fence and Karl remarks that this is the reason they shouldn't have brought him there but Susan reassures him that they'll find him.
Number 30 (Inside)
Rosie is on the phone to Toadie as Ringo comes in, Frazer is worried that it's not a good sign that he's back early from their parents but Ringo says that their mum was really good and didn't stop talking about stuff. Apparently their dad is less enthused. The lights inside buzz and flash so Rosie tells Toadie that it needs fixing, he promises to handle it today.
Frazer asks about his case, Rosie tells him that it looks like the racetrack are ready to settle out of court. They celebrate and kiss.
There is a knock at the door and Rosie goes to open it. Lucia and several other women enter with Champagne and plates of food, she looks surprised and Lucia says she obviously didn't get her message but she needs to cancel everything - they have a wedding to plan. Tom walks in through the open door looking excited.
Ned and Mickey are having a kick about. Paul is sat at a picnic bench doing some sort of paperwork, Jake smells the bacon sandwich he has sat next to him and goes and eats some of it. Paul doesn't notice. Ned takes Mickey aside and tries to talk to him but before he can get anything out they notice that Jake is eating Paul's sandwich so they rush over to get Jake. Paul tells them it's fine - he doesn't need the cholesterol anyway. Paul introduces himself. Ned reciprocates and Paul says that Elle has mentioned him. Mickey tells Paul his name, Ned seems in a hurry to leave.
PAUL: Look there's obviously some bad blood between us.
NED: You could say that.
PAUL: Well, can we make a fresh start, how about I shout you some brekkie then?
NED: Thanks but I'm taking Mickey to see his first football match.
MICKEY: And for a swim
PAUL: You're pretty lucky to have a dad like that eh?!
Mickey explains that Ned isn't his dad, his dad is a famous footie player, Ned looks disappointed and tells Mickey that it's not true. Mickey asks Ned how he knows, but Ned just looks awkward and Mickey continues to tell Paul - his dad is also a fireman and a racecar driver. Paul asks Ned if he's got footie tickets and offers to see if he can get some through Lassiters since he's heard there's been a sell out. Ned is reluctant but Paul tells him he wants to apologise properly, Mickey gives him an excited look.
Lucia is surprised at the state of the house, she and the women with her are surprised they can live in a small purple dump, Rosie looks exasperated and tells her the wiring is getting fixed. She tells Frazer that the women are her Aunts and that Tom must be with one of them. She reassures him that not all of her family will be coming to the wedding. Lucia tells her that weddings are all about family.
Carmella comes in and asks Lucia what she's doing there, Lucia starts fussing about them and the food and fabric and it all gets a bit noisy.
FRAZER: Lucia, silencio now
LUCIA: Frazer, a wedding has very little to do with the groom.
FRAZER: Mrs Cammeniti, with all due respect you've already made your feelings about me and my chair very clear, but that's not the point. Now you and your family are more than welcome in our house but while you're here I suggest you show Rosie a little more respect.
They all display a mixture of surprised and impressed looks.
FRAZER: Now can I get you a glass of champagne?
Lucia accepts and they all sigh with relief
The General Store
Oliver is apologising to Paul - they've run out of footie tickets. Oliver asks Paul who Mickey belongs to but Paul tells him he's only just found out who Ned is. He goes to let Ned and Mickey know about the tickets. Mickey looks disappointed. Paul suggests they check out the local team - the Dingo's, Ned isn't sure but Paul says that in his day they were great. Mickey thinks it's a good idea. As they are walking off Mickey invites Paul who is reluctant but Ned tells him it'd be fine. Paul seems really pleased. As they leave Elle arrives.
She heads over to Oliver, she jokingly accuses him of hiding but he says he's been busy with what we see is some sort of paperwork (this is a shock as previously the Scarlet Bar has always been a good meeting and work place for Lassiters staff but then we remember it's being renovated.), Elle suggests doing a DNA test with Napier to try and find out if he's his grandfather. Karl, Susan and Zeke rush in and ask if they've seen Tom, just as they're about to go Oliver offers to help them look for him.
ELLE: You just remember we've still got things to talk about
OLIVER: No, we don't
He leaves and Elle looks perplexed. She then realises he's left his jacket behind and we can see the hamsters (or whoever turns the cogs inside her head) realising that if she find a hair then she can do a DNA test herself (let's hope it's not an animal hair) and she picks one off and tries to look inconspicuous.

Yet more sparks in the pool and we see a dead bird floating around...lush.
Back at room 303 yet again we see Elle arriving, she looks around before entering Napier's room. She gets a hair from him too and holds it up to the light just to make sure we've seen it.
Number 30 (Back Inside)
Ringo and Carmella are 'arguing' over who should sit on the sofa, the whole over polite 'no you take it' thing. They are grinning at each other and Ringo is insistent of 'ladies first'
TOM: Ah, young love, nerves I expect, well soon you'll be married and trust me it'll all work out right on the night.
They look mortified as Carmella explains that it's her sister and his brother who are getting married. Ringo explains that Frazer and Lucia are having 'words'. Cut to the kitchen.
FRAZER: I will have to rely on Rosie at times, but I certainly don't need a carer and you know, she relies on me too.
LUCIA: Like when her bully of a mother won't let her get a word in?
FRAZER: That's one example
LUCIA: Rosetta's a strong woman, she needs a strong man, I wouldn't be much of a mother if I wasn't concerned.
She commends him for being brave enough to speak out against a room full of Cammeniti women, they rejoin the others and Lucia announces that she will be paying for the entire wedding. They protest but Lucia is adamant, it's traditional - she was saving for their weddings before they were born. She tells Frazer to go and watch a horserace or something.
Frazer and Ringo share a worried look.
Mickey is so excited he's dragging Ned along, they stop and Ned asks him if he wants a pie and sauce - it's traditional. He tells Paul he has to have one too. He goes to buy them leaving Paul and Mickey to chat.
MICKEY: Did your dad take you to the footie?
PAUL: He used to, yeah.
MICKEY: Where's he live?
PAUL: Oh, he died
MICKEY: Ah that's sad.
PAUL: Yeah it is a bit.
MICKEY: I don't have a dad either (Ned looks over at Mickey)
PAUL: No? You've got a pretty good mate there in Ned though
MICKEY: Yeah I wish he was me dad.
Ned arrives back with their pies, he asks Mickey if they can go somewhere nice for dinner just the two of them and then tells him that they need to eat their pies before the game starts or it's a bad omen, Mickey gets stuck in with a giant mouthful.
As the woman chatter, Ringo sneaks into the room, and takes a pad of paper from the chair next to Lucia, he and Frazer then meet in the hallway, it becomes clear to us that it's the guest list for the wedding. Ringo is clearly amused as he looks at the list and asks Frazer how long his list is. Frazer informs him that there are 9 people, ten if he includes himself. When Ringo hands him the list it appears it extends over pages- it's his fault for marrying an Italian. Tom appears from nowhere and tells him to expect fireworks - but beautiful ones that he should relax and enjoy. It worries me that all Tom has been scripted today appears to be innuendo. He goes back into the living room and they remark at him seemingly turning up with one of the Aunties.
There's a knock at the door- it's Zeke looking for Tom. Zeke is relieved to see him in the living room-they've been looking for him everywhere. Tom tells him about the wedding and introduces him to 'the beautiful Angelica.' Zeke drags him out still going on about the party. Frazer 'bagsies' Tom for his list bringing the total, (including him) to 11. The Cammeniti women exchange worried looks.
Elle gives the dodgy hospital bloke the two samples and he tells her she's looking really good for someone with a terminal disease. She tells him that this time it's for a good cause.
Karl and Susan arrive home and are relieved to see Tom already there. Karl starts to tell him off for going but Tom tells him it's none of his business and he was having a great time until 'Karl' dragged him away.
TOM: You've always been a goodie two shoes, always got your head in a book or running to your mum. Why don't you get into mischief like a normal kid, afraid you might get hurt?
Susan tells him to stop and he apologises for losing his temper with 'Karl', he tells him he's be a great doctor -has a gentle streak he's never had and to ignore his whining. He's a better son that he deserves. Susan puts her arm round Karl who looks heartbroken.
A hooter goes and they cheer and clap, Mickey (who is unbelievably cute) jumps onto Ned's back and asks if they can come back next week. He tells Ned it was awesome. They are headed back to the hotel, Mickey asks Ned if they can go for a swim but Ned tells him that the pool is being repaired. Paul is surprised to hear they're staying at Lassiters, Mickey lets him in on their secret - they sneaked the dog in and turn up the TV when he barks. Paul promises not to tell. Paul tells them to come back and live with him and Elle, they've got a big back garden for the dog and Elle could really do with good friends around. Ned is reluctant as he has Mickey to think about but Paul tells him they are more than welcome to stay.
Tom is asleep, Susan asks Zeke to give her a hand at the shops. Karl comes out of the bedroom and tries to wake up Tom to take some tablets. Tom tells him that he recognizes him - he's the nurse that keeps fussing over him. Karl looks disappointed and tells him that he needs to take his medication.
Yet more buzzing from the pool, Frazer is sitting outside with the radio and the paper and thinks it's the radio. He is talking to Oliver and asks him what's up. Ned arrives and asks if Mickey could have a swim, just a quick one before they go and pick up their stuff from the hotel. Frazer offers to look after Mickey while Ned goes and picks up their stuff from Lassiters.
Oliver takes his shirt off and goes to get into the pool with Mickey but then his phone rings. It's Elle - she seems to want to see him as he tells her that he'll be straight there. He leaves telling Mickey he'll have to wait till he gets back. More sparks in the pool as the lights continue to buzz.
Elle tells Oliver she's just ordered -does he want anything. He asks about Ned moving in and tells her she's an enigma. He then apologises for taking out the Napier stuff out on her. He says it's going to take ages to get permission to do a DNA test and soon clocks her odd look. He asks her what she's done and she admits that she's taken matters into her own hands. He's disappointed but she gives him the number to call if he wants the results.
Mickey is sitting bored by the pool, Frazer tells him it's best to wait for Oliver and Ned to get back Frazer still thinks it's the radio that's buzzing and fiddles with it. Rosie is hovering inside when the lights flicker and the hoover stops. Mickey sees the dead bird in the pool and tells Frazer who comes over to look, he notices the sparks over the other side and tells Mickey not to touch anything but it's too late as we see Rosie switch the power off we hear Mickey fall into the pool. Frazer is left looking at him shouting Mickey.
