Steve telling Toadie that he doesn't want his family coming to prison.
Declan comforting Bridget.
Dan walking in as Sam confronts Libby at the school.
Steve trying to warn off a guy who he knows from prison who has appeared in Ramsay Street.
Ramsay Street
Steve looks warily at the street before going inside.
Number 30
Dan is struggling to see how his and Sam's relationship can work when she keeps going on about Libby. Furious, Sam suggests she stops taking her pills. Dan fails to calm her down.
SAM: (screaming) What is the point, Dan? If we're finished, what is the point in any of it?
She storms out of the house and Dan follows her. Outside, Libby has just drawn up in her car. Dan tries to get Sam to come back inside to talk things over, but she gets into her car. Libby watches silently. Dan places himself in front of Sam's car and refuses to get out of the way. Elle also appears to watch awkwardly as Sam drives off, ignoring Dan's pleas. Elle asks if she can help and Dan instructs her to call the police, give a description of the car and tell them she's unwell.
Number 24
Meanwhile, Steve watches through the window. He suggests that they celebrate by having dinner at Charlie's, even though Miranda has a roast in the oven, because he wants to get out of the house. Miranda isn't keen to let her cooking go to waste and doesn't want to leave Ned and Nicola out because they're still at work. Steve proposes that they leave a note, so Miranda reluctantly goes to get ready and Bridget happily feeds Jake. Lou gives Steve a look of warning. When no one is looking, Steve unplugs the phone.
A Road
Dan and Libby are caught in a traffic jam caused by road-works, which is making them both frustrated. The police are handling Sam's disappearance. Sam's voice can be heard, shouting about the hold-up. Libby pulls up beside her and Dan desperately attempts to get Sam to wait, but she speeds off. Libby shouts at Dan to get back in the car, but he concedes sadly to let her go.
Charlie's Bar
The teens are gathered and Rachel is criticising Ty's spelling of "community" on his poster to try to get donations for the fire service. Ringo has been thinking of signing up and Ty suggests that he comes up with a good fund-raising idea.
Elle rushes over and asks if anyone has seen Sam. They haven't, but agree to call if they do.
RACHEL: What was all that about?
TY: If it's what I'm thinking, it's not good.
Elle runs out as the Parkers come in. Lou can't tempt Bridget with a game of darts. Steve asks Lou to move in with them and thankfully Miranda has changed her tune on the idea. Lou is delighted and agrees. He gets up with Miranda to get the drinks and Declan and Rachel take the seats instead, greeting Steve enthusiastically. Steve is unsure about when he's going to come back to training. Bridget once again turns down an offer of darts, this time from Declan.
Lou and Miranda return and they all toast to their family. The guy from prison who threatened Steve appears behind, looking scary.
Number 24
Nicola returns home with a bunch of flowers and a bottle of champagne, to discover that no one is around, because they've "Gone to Charlies for dinner" (note lack of apostrophe and dots on "I"s). Ned comes in and is informed that they're all out. Ned tells her that he'll grab a shower and see her down there.
Lassiter's Complex
Threatening Dude leaves Charlie's, with Steve is pursuit. Steve reminds him that what happened inside has nothing to do with his family. Nicola arrives and breaks the tension by giving Steve a big hug. He ushers her inside before returning to his heated exchange, to be told that somebody's going to pay for what he did and it could be his family. Ooh, enigmatic.
The Side of the Road
Enraged, Sam is shouting at her car engine for breaking down. She places her head onto the bonnet and sobs. A guy pulls up and she tells him her problem, so he offers her a lift. She gratefully accepts and asks to be taken home to Ramsay Street. The camera turns to show us his face: it's Steve's fellow inmate.
Commercial Break
Number 30
Libby is speaking to Elle on the phone, but hears no news. Dan rejects Libby's offer of a coffee. He blames himself for everything with Sam. Libby worries that she's making things worse, so suggests that she leaves. Dan doesn't think that things can get worse. His phone rings and he passes the information he is told on to Libby: the police have found Sam's car.
Charlie's Bar
Miranda and Nicola discuss food options. Steve is preoccupied with watching Bridget and Declan together. He's a little worried about her, but the women seem to think it's a good thing. Ned arrives and happily greets his brother.
On the other side of the bar, Bridget asks Lou what's making her dad act weirdly. Lou tells her not to worry, that he's just readjusting.
LOU: Hey you lot, what about a kissing booth?
DECLAN: Erm, I'm quite happy playing darts right now. Thanks, Lou.
LOU: To raise money for the fire service, birdbrain. We used to do it a lot when I was a kid.
Rachel thinks it's a nice, quaint idea. Zeke thinks it's creepy. Lou, a bit insulted that they haven't taken to his idea, walks off.
RINGO: He's kind of like living history, eh?
Declan reckons, arrogantly, that he could have raised some money through it. Bridget tells them he's a very good kisser and the gang are shocked - until she adds that a guy over there told her. Bridget is sure that Ty would get more business than Declan.
The man in question arrives on the scene and Rachel informs him that Bridget is talking about him being the main attraction in a kissing booth. Ty suggests he clears it with his fake girlfriend first, which Rachel laughs off. He notices her twirling her ring. Ty is up for the kissing booth idea, because he's keen to do anything to raise money.
The Side of the Road
Elle and Libby watch a distraught Dan talk to police. Elle suggests that it's Libby's fault for not just leaving them alone, but then apologises, although she is still on Sam's side. Elle's phone rings and she calls Dan over - it's Sam. Elle is confused to hear that she's having a party and agrees to bring some people. Dan is surprised to be told that she's at home.
Number 30
Clearly Sam's idea of a party is dancing wildly and drinking in the company of strange men. She tells her creepy companion that she's got some friends on the way. They discover that they have a friend in common: Steve Parker. Sam divulges that Steve's recently been in jail, which he greedily takes in, asking if it's been tough on his family. Sam tells him that it's been especially hard for is daughter Bridget, utterly unaware that she's passing on helpful information, and that she worked on the case as a lawyer. He's clearly delighted to hear this.
Sam dances over to join him on the sofa, where she puts her arm around him and flirtatiously thanks him for saving her. Dan and Elle walk in, thankfully before anything can actually happen. Sam launches herself at Elle and grabs Dan to dance with. Sam's "friend" introduces himself as Pete and tells Dan that he saved her when her car broke down. Libby arrives and is too greeted by Sam, the only one unperturbed by the acutely uncomfortable atmosphere. She takes the girls into the kitchen to get drinks.
Dan requests that Pete leaves, but he's in no hurry. Pete plans to wait for Sam to tell him to leave, so Dan becomes more firm and chucks him out. Sam becomes distressed when she sees Pete leaving and realises that the party's ending. Libby tells Dan that they're on their way. Sam is confused and learns that some people are coming to see her to check that she's ok. She anxiously says that she doesn't want that and then turns on Libby, blaming her. She shouts at her to get out and becomes more furious when she suggests that Dan might need her.
SAM: He doesn't need you, he needs me! Because I'm his wife, not you! ME!
Dan tries to calm Sam down as she sobs.
Commercial Break
Charlie's Bar
Bridget and Rachel are discussing random guys, whilst the boys make arrangements for the kissing booth. Ty and Declan are keen to sell tickets in advance for $1. Ringo wonders what the girls are talking about.
(Camera zooms out to show the girls)
RACHEL: You'd kiss him?
BRIDGET: I know.
RACHEL: Who'd have guessed?
BRIDGET: Well come on, you have to admit Barack Obama's a little bit hot.
That was weird. Bridget confesses about the other guy she would kiss, looking over to the boys: Zeke. Are they going to do every possible relationship combination in the teen gang? Rachel is grossed out to hear that her brother is deemed hot.
The boys join them and inform them of their scheme which includes a competition for the most pashes. Bridget agrees to go to the General Store with Declan, so goes to say bye to her family. They boys leave Ty with Rachel. He asks his fake-girlfriend if she's ok with everything and Rachel assures him that she is, although his stalker might not be so relaxed. Ty is not best pleased at the thought of Donna's reaction.
Number 24
The Parkers return home. Nicola puts the kettle on and offers to tell them about her first day at work, but Steve and Miranda are a bit busy getting close. Nicola suggests getting an early night instead. Miranda goes to bed and tells Steve not to be long. He plugs the phone back in when she's gone.
The General Store
Declan confirms that Bridget's ok with the kissing booth. She's sure that his kisses will rake in the cash. Ringo, Zeke, Ty and Rachel arrive to let Declan know that all his tickets have been sold, whereas Ty's only sold two. Declan is thrilled.
BRIDGET: Maybe it was, um, oh never mind.
BRIDGET: Well I saw you're mum at the bar when I left, buying a bottle of wine.
BRIDGET: But she wouldn't have bought all your tickets, would she?
The guys tease him, but Rachel and Bridget think it's sweet. Declan is furious.
Pete has been sitting near them and pops up to ask Bridget if she's Steve's daughter. He tells her he and Steve are friends.
Number 24
Steve rings Bridget from his and Miranda's bedroom, requesting that she come home. Obviously facing opposition, he tells her to just take care. After checking that he's ok, Miranda tries to take his shirt off, but Steve won't let her. She questions how tense he is, but he insists that he's just settling back in. He's also worrying about Bridget and Declan, although Miranda thinks they should give them a chance because he's been so supportive of her. Steve pretends that's all that's wrong.
Erinsborough Hospital
Karl leaves the hospital room that Sam is in and that Dan is staring hopelessly into. Karl tells him that he's given her a sedative and she's resting. He hopes that she won't need to be kept in for more than a day or two. Karl allows him to see her, but warns that she's very tired.
Dan sits beside her and she wakes as he places his hand on her one. She quietly tells him she loves him and he nods.
Commercial Break
Number 24
Steve stands in the kitchen, applying ice to his back. Nicola comes in and makes him show her his injury, reminding him that she's a nurse. Despite his excuses, she can tell that it's not just a fall and that he's been in a fight. He tells her to keep it to herself.
STEVE: When I was inside these guys tried to stand over me. I had to defend myself and now they've been threatening me.
He assures her that he's ok; the problem is more that they're threatening to hurt the whole family.
