We hear the missing trio's names being called out.
Number 28
Steve ribs Karl for his cheap champers before Karl makes a toast to the fact that they are going to be childless for the next few days. Karl cancels his ringing mobile to propose another toast but all the other phones start ringing (Miranda's, Susan's and #28's).
The Parkers and Kennedys have reached the riverbank and watch on as the emergency services put the rescue plan into action.
Rescue tent
Steve and Miranda find Declan and she isn't amused to find out that Didge is missing especially after he said he'd look after her. Dan arrives and confirms that its Libby, Zeke and Didge that is missing but is quick to say that they'll be found.
We then cut to somewhere on the river to see an unidentified body lying still in the water.
Rescue tent
Karl wants answers as to what has happened but Dan can't tell him so instead tells him (and the now joined Parker's) that those rescued have been transferred to hospital. Steve and Karl decide that they don't want to sit and wait for news and head off to see if they can join in the search. Declan wants to go too but is told to stay put.
Steph cancels a call on her mobile because she is on a date with Greg. He is flattering her with compliments about being 'hot' which Steph seems rather embarrassed by. After an awkward silent moment, they decide to head off to somewhere to get up close and personal with each other!
Well they didn't go very far which is probably a good thing since both seem to be gagging for it as they quickly make their way into the hotel room pashing all the way!
Rescue tent
Miranda has a go at Declan for not looking after Didge and Andrew appears saying that he did, but that it was he who separated them into different boats. Shell-shocked Andrew mutters Zeke's name and Susan is quickly onto her feet because she thinks Andrew is trying to blame Zeke.
MIRANDA: You'd better hope that Bridget and everyone else comes back okay because if they don't so help me.
Belinda (the new Senior Sgt) appears and shows them something that has been found and identified - a boot belonging to Bridget.
Dan conducts his own search, shouting out the name as he goes along the riverbank seemingly to no avail until he spots a body lying beside the water. He runs down to them and finds that it is Libby (who is back to being played by Kym Valentine). Both look relived to see each other and Dan tries to keep her awake by talking about the wedding and tries to keep her spirits up when she asks him to take care of Ben. He hoists her onto his shoulder and starts to make his way back to the rescue tent.
Commercial break over and we head back to see Declan out searching for Bridget and calling out her name. He spots a water bottle floating at the water and then hears a noise and turns round to find Didge. Scrambling back up the embankment he hugs and kisses her both relived to see each other.
Steph gets dressed after her "afternoon exercising" with Greg (he is still in the bed). She feels somewhat cheap but Greg reassures her that it isn't and that he doesn't see it as just being fun. He wants Steph to stay however she mentions that she needs to go collect Charlie but he seductively asks her to stay. When she picks up her mobile to call someone, she notices that Susan's tried to call her 6 times so she calls her asking "what's up?"
Rescue tent
Steve and Miranda are relived to see Didge walk into the tent with Declan and hug her immediately. She asks about the others and is told about Zeke and Libby being missing.
Belinda is trying to tell Susan about impending bad weather when Steph arrives and receives a ticking off for not answering her phone. Just as Susan is about to tell her about Libby, an unconscious Libby arrives in the tent and is placed onto a stretcher for transporting to Erinsborough hospital.
Libby is wheeled into the hospital with everyone following on behind and taken straight in for treatment. Steph volunteers to do the coffee run and as she is at the machine, her attention is drawn to Greg's voice... and she spots him kissing Dr Olenski and can't but help fail to notice that it looks like they are a couple.
Commercial break over, Olenski comes over to give them her wishes and upon spotting Steph, asks after Charlie (who we now find out has been fast-forwarded in age to be 4 now instead of the 2 he should be) but all Steph can see is the wedding rings that are on Olenski's left hand.
The random doctor treating Libby appears to tell them that she'll be fine and agrees to let them in one at a time and Susan tells Dan to go in first.
Libby's room
Dan heads to where Libby is lying wrapped in a space blanket and kisses her. He says that they should set a wedding date too because he doesn't want to waste any more time. Lib mentions that Zeke is still missing and he reassures her that Zeke will be found too before kissing her again.
Hospital corridor
Declan returns from a coffee/food run to where Miranda is sitting. After a bit of small talk, she apologises to him for going off on one, explaining that she needed to blame someone and wrongly blamed him, which he accepts.
Didge's room
Olenski finishes taking a sample of blood from Didge and gives her the go ahead to have something to eat. This is just as well because Declan comes in with the food he brought but to her annoyance, doesn't give her the food she wants, instead telling her to drink the OJ and eat a banana first.
Susan hangs up having failed again to get hold of Rachel on her mobile. Dan returns with coffee from The General Store rather than the hospital canteen and says that Rebecca is on her way in and updates her about Didge adding that Zeke is a tough kid.
Susan gets a bit upset at the though of letting Alex down (she promised to look after his kids) and Dan has to stop her from going out to search for him.
SUSAN: I can't lose him.
Rescue tent
Karl is annoyed to find that the search is being scaled down due to fading light even though the policewoman says that it will resume at first light and tells him not to go off on his own searching.
Steve appears to tell him that they've found something.
Steve, Karl and the policewoman head to the riverbank but she stops the two of them from heading to the riverside until she checks it out first. When she reaches the other rescuers we see a lifejacket and after checking the manifest, returns to tell Karl that the lifejacket is Zeke's.
Rescue tent
Karl calls Rachel and leaves a message asking her to call him "it's important we talk" he also adds before hanging up.
