Caution: Dream sequence ahead.
Dan is supporting someone who we cannot see but assume to be Sam, who is making nice, panty "I'm giving birth" noises. However, when the camera turns to face the person being so delightfully implored to push, we see that it is, in fact, Libby (who, as ever in Neighbours, is wearing an awful lot of make-up for someone in labour, but I'll let them off this time seeing as it's a figment of the mind). He tells her he loves her and she says the same back. You can tell it's a dream by the way she makes a very feeble pushing noise and then miraculously a baby's cries are heard.
Back in the real world, Sam wakes Dan on the sofa and asks if she was in his dream. He doesn't reply. The sound of the baby crying can still be heard and we realise that it's on the TV - Sam's watching a documentary on childbirth. Toadie comes in and at first enjoys the view, then turns it off to avoid the gore.
Toadie asks Sam to join him in the kitchen to talk about the Parker case. Sam tells Dan to get an early night.
The General Store
Declan, Rachel, Ringo and Zeke contemplate the unfairness of the Erinsborough News report that proclaims Steve to be a killer. Zeke tells them Taylah was gutted about Chris. Ringo's confused - she hated him.
ZEKE: Mate, none of us liked him. Didn't mean we wanted him to die.
Zeke says that he woke up in hospital and seemed fine, even Didge spoke to him. Just as they begin to talk about her, she comes in. Rachel invites her to join them, but she says she doesn't have time. They offer their commiserations and tell her that they don't believe her Dad did it.
As she leaves with some milk, Declan follows her and reminds her that they're her friends; she can talk to them. She can tell there's something she's not telling them but she refuses to say.
Declan tells the rest of them that he doesn't know what's going on, but they have to do something.
The teens have come to see Toadie to tell him Steve didn't kill Chris Knight. Toadie explains that he has to go on what his client says and the evidence - as will the court. Declan tries the "Chris Knight is a sleaze" line but Toadie doesn't find it helpful; that just gives Steve more reason to attack him. Declan uses his experience with Steve at footie training to try to prove that Steve is not a violent man. Toadie insists that they will tell the court things like that, but there isn't much they can do to stop him from going to jail. He sees them out, with Declan offering one last jibe that he's useless.
Miranda thanks Ned for rescheduling Steve's appointments. Ned warns her that some people are taking their animals elsewhere after hearing about Steve's arrest. She hasn't had any luck with the locum agency but Ned has to go because he's getting behind with the garage. He gets a call and finds that his customers are beginning to jump ship because of Steve as well.
Bridget returns from the General Store with the milk she bought so she can have her breakfast. It seems to me that was a bit of a trek when considering the number of different packets on the table she would probably have managed to find something other than cereal to eat.
Libby arrives with some ravioli because, as any good Ramsay Street resident knows, a bit of home-cooking solves any crisis. She tells Miranda that Karl feels terrible about the statement he gave to the police. Libby assures her that they're all there for them. Miranda thanks her half-heartedly and walks away.
Mickey asks Ned if Steve's dead. Ned explains that he's just been caught up in some problems. Kirsten arrives in some utterly incomprehensible shorts. Mickey asks her to make Ned tell him the truth. She promises that Steve's not dead and that she'll tell him about it on the way to school. As he goes to get into the car, Kirsten tells Ned that she'll tell him that Steve's been charged with a serious crime, but that she doesn't believe he did it. Ned says that he doesn't believe it either. Kirsten reminds him that Mickey's old enough to hear these things now. She offers to cook them a meal that night, but Ned asks her to drop it - he can't think about anything but Steve. She tells him that she's trying to repay the favour for his support with the blackmail. He thanks her, but gets back to the car he has to do.
The General Store
The teenagers who never seem to be in lessons anymore are discussing the rumour that some of the footie team aren't going to go to training sessions unless Steve gets sacked. Rachel reminds them that the hearing's about to start and they all think about poor Didge. Libby and Dan arrive and tell Declan and Ringo that whilst the Parkers are on temporary leave, they'll be doing the cleaning, with Dan's supervision and Zeke's help. Needless to say, none of them seem all that thrilled.
Libby takes Dan aside for a word and asks if there's a problem - he seems tense. He apologises and says that he's just a bit preoccupied. He suggests that as they're both free first lesson they go down to the court and show the Parkers their support. Libby agrees and he follows her out.
Steve is led in and Bridget rushes over to hug him with Miranda behind. Steve says it will be alright and asks them to be strong. Bridget tells him she won't let him go to prison for something he didn't do and if he pleads guilty, she'll stand up and tell everyone the truth. Steve begs her not to and gets Toadie to take her away. Toadie asks her to settle down. Miranda reminds her that this is what her father wants, but Bridget still insists that she is the one who should be in the dock.
Toadie confirms that his client intends to plead guilty. Bridget shouts "no" but is ignored - the judge continues that he has a previous conviction. Bridget stands up but is asked to sit down. The judge suggests that to avoid the upsetting experience of seeing her father in the dock, she leaves the court. She says that she does have something useful to contribute and Steve says he can help - the events have left her distressed and confused, so she needs to take a moment to think and then she'll remain quiet and calm for the rest of the hearing. She eventually consents to sit down.
The boys complain about having to do the cleaning and Fitzy spending the whole time drinking coffee in the staff room. Declan gets a text from Bridget declining his offer of going to see a movie as a friend. Zeke and Ringo aren't convinced.
DECLAN: I just want to talk to her. She's obviously pretty gutted about her dad's arrest and I think something smells dodgy.
ZEKE: (mocking) Smells dodgy? What, are you working on a hunch, detective?
DECLAN: No, I just don't think Steve's guilty and I bet Didge doesn't either. I just want to help her out.
RINGO: What, so you're just gonna go down to the crime scene, make a little citizen's arrest?
Zeke and Ringo laugh. Audrey starts barking but Zeke tells her that he's not going to take her for a walk - it's Rachel's turn. Declan offers to take her down to the park.
RINGO: Oh my God, he is going down to the crime scene and he's taking the dog squad.
ZEKE: It's Detective Dec meets Inspector Rex!
Declan's not impressed.
Lou's handing around snacks. Toadie comments that he wasn't sure if they'd get bail. Lou suggests that it's because the judge fancied Steve. He approaches Sam and Bridget, asking Didge what she was planning to say in court. She pretends it was nothing and walks into the kitchen where she tells her dad that she hates lying. Bridget doesn't want him to go to prison just for protecting her. Toadie and Sam head back to the office and tell Steve that they'll be in contact.
Steve thanks Ned for being a rock for the family and lets him know that the family will be relying on him once he's in jail, but Steve trusts him to do a good job. Ned looks less certain.
The General Store
Lou and Rebecca comment on the travesty that is the story about Steve. Rebecca acknowledges that although she and Steve have never seen eye to eye, he's been great with Declan. Steve and Miranda come in and receive a dirty look from one of the patrons, which is no less than a feat of acting genius. Lou shakes his hand. Rebecca tells them not to let them let the article get them down and invites them to join her. Steve asks for a chair from the table of the rude man, who allows him but not without a snide comment. Lou tries to chuck him out, Steve tries to tell him it's ok but the man leaves anyway. Steve apologises.
Sam and Dan are both looking very pensive. Sam asks him to be honest with her if he's having second thoughts about anything. Dan tells her that he can't wait to be a father.
Libby comes in and joins Toadie at the bar. She asks what the deal was with Bridget and Toadie suggests that she just feels responsible seeing as it was her who was going out with Chris. Libby sympathises with her. Ned appears and asks for a word with Toadie so Libby leaves. Ned questions Toadie on Steve's chances of staying out of jail which are, to be honest, not good, especially as he's pleading guilty.
Mickey arrives with Kirsten. He goes to ask Libby if he can come over to see Ben later. Ned offers Kirsten a drink. Ned pretends he's ok but Kirsten still offers her support, although Ned's wary of complicating things. She assures them that they're just old friends.
Miranda has decked the place out in candles and is treating Steve. Bridget is out with Rachel and Steve's worried that she'll tell her something she shouldn't. Miranda shuts him up by kissing him.
The General Store
Rachel helps Lou pack up the copies of Erinsborough News which he is returning to protect the Parkers' right to privacy. Bridget arrives and Rachel is happy to see her. Bridget says she wants to talk because she's confused. Seeing Rachel's "R" pendant, Bridget has a sudden flashback to the pendant that Chris gave her.
The boys are there with Audrey. Declan notes that this is where Chris must have been attacked.
The General Store
Rachel advises Bridget that if she's lost a necklace, the best thing to do is retrace her steps and think about where she had it last. Bridget looks like she's had a moment of epiphany and rushes out, telling Rachel she'll call her later.
Ringo and Zeke sit on the bench whilst Declan continues to comb the bushes. Ringo advises that he gives up because the police have already done the same. Declan thinks they would have been looking for evidence pointing towards Steve, whereas it could have been a complete stranger. They suddenly realise that they don't know where Audrey is. Ringo and Zeke go to check Lassiter's. Declan calls for her and Audrey appears. Declan approaches her and finds Bridget's "B" necklace on the ground. Bridget comes around the corner and, to dramatic musical backing, they approach each other. Declan shows her the necklace.
