- Cass receiving phone calls from a stalker
- Cass accusing Paul of harassing her
- Cass admitting to everyone that she set Paul up
- Dec and Didge finding a bag in the allotment with $20,000 in it
- Zeke wondering why Dec and Didge have Katya's bag
Zeke tells Dec and Didge he recognized the bag because he bought it for Katya for her birthday. Dec & Didge are stunned to learn that Katya was involved with crims before she left Erinsborough. Zeke warns them they can't keep the dosh or take it to the cops - they'll have to bury it where they found it.
The boys finish buying the money. Having learned about Guy Sykes, Didge asks how dangerous he was, looking shocked when Zeke reveals that Guy took he, Steph and Charlie hostage then shot Toadie in the back. Zeke makes Dec and Didge promise they won't tell anyone about the cash. As they move off, we see a mysterious POV watching them from behind the shed.
Toadie grimly lets Zeke know that Guy Sykes is out on parole. What a coinkydink! But Toadie doesn't think they need to panic, it's not like he's got a reason to show his face 'round Erinsborough. Zeke's like, "... Gulp".
Libby freaks out when she sees Ben's new, short haircut, but Lord knows why. He looks more like a kid now and less like a member of The Monkees. Dan lets Libby know the school council are bringing forward the job interviews for the principal position, and thinks they should get cracking on their preparation. But Libby is more interested in taking Ben to minigolf.
Donna hangs up from Tegan and Simon and tells Cass that they send their love, but Cass is more interested in making sure the house is safe from prying eyes. Donna doesn't get why Cass is still worried about her stalker - things seem to have died down since her public apology. Donna thinks it's about time she left the house and got on with her life - starting with buying her a coffee and getting to know the neighbours a little better.
Donna pushes her mum in Steve's direction to start her 'friendly neighbour' routine.
CASS: (overly cheery) Hi Steve! How's the family?
STEVE: (wary) Yeah, they're OK.
CASS: Good... And um, pets! You've got lots of pets.
STEVE: Yeah I'm a vet.
He walks off and Cass sulks to Donna that he wasn't very friendly. The Freedmans leave just as Mickey and Callum walk in and order up big with Elle. Steve gets suss when Mickey tries to pay with a $50 note. Toadie waltzes in as the boys explain they found the money in the allotment. Toadie and Steve look intrigued, as does Elle.
Elle chirps away into her tape recorder while Toadie and Steve dig up the garden. The boys tell them they're getting closer, but the little brats are lying. Mickey quietly wonders if they should tell the guys where they hid the bag, but Callum's having too much fun watching them sweat.
Dec and Didge have to scrounge around for small change to pay for their snacks. Dec's not impressed considering the stash they had earlier. Zeke and Donna wonder if they should tip. Uh, you're not in Lanzini's kids. Steve, Toadie and Elle return from their dig with no success, while the teens (minus Donna) get their worried faces on when they hear what the buried treasure was. Elle trots off to file the story with the paper while Zeke hastily takes Toadie aside.
ZEKE: There's twenty grand.
ZEKE: There's twenty grand buried in the garden. Katya hid it there.
TOADIE: This doesn't have anything to do with Guy Sykes does it?
ZEKE: It was the money she was going to use to pay him off. But he must have got arrested before he could get to it.
TOADIE: Great. I don't need another reminder of him, I've still got his bullet in my back.
Zeke says the boys must have the money, but it's Elle he's more worried about. If she runs the story and Guy gets wind of it, they're in deep doo-doo.
Toadie and Zeke have filled Elle in on the Guy side of things. Elle's annoyed - if she had have known beforehand she would have had a much better angle! The boys want her to stop the story from being printed but Elle tells them it's too late. She doesn't think they have anything to worry about. Oh Elle, you live in Erinsborough. Buy a clue.
Libby and Ben return from minigolf. But instead of starting work on her job application, Libby decides to make a cake instead. Dan looks suss.
Later, the cake is made and Libby nonchalantly tells Dan that she isn't going to apply for the job. Dan's surprised, but Libby admits that she doesn't want to be bogged down with too much work. She wants to ensure she has an equal work/family balance.
Allotment - Next Morning
Zeke looks at the front cover of the Erinsborough News. It has a picture from the Easter egg hunt with the heading: Field of gold. The camera pans out to reveal half of the town digging millions of holes, trying to find the cash. Toadie finds Zeke and quietly lets him know the kids fessed up - they buried the bag in #26's backyard. Toadie adds that they have to go to the cop shop to make a few statements and that everything should be fine now. Yeah right. As they walk off, Guy Sykes is revealed hiding behind the shed. He also has a copy of the paper and focuses in on Callum's picture with a smirk.
The Detective is taking statements from Callum, Mickey and Declan in the house as a favour to Toadie. Callum wonders if the 'finders keepers' policy applies to the cash, but the Detective says it'll go to the government. If it's not claimed after three months, however, Declan will get it since he discovered it. It's not often I say this, but what about poor Katya? Surely she could use it to buy a personality or something.
Libby's excitedly telling Ben that she's going to volunteer at the tuckshop at school and become a member of the PTA, but Ben is less than thrilled. Across the shop, Donna is trying to get her mum interested in the local news to use as a topic of conversation with the neighbours, but Cass is bored. What about the front page, girls? Isn't ILOVECASH Cass's middle name? Dan (looking hot in a suit) walks over to Libby and Ben and tells them he got the job. He's on a 6-week trial, though, and he has to direct the school play (starting with auditions during the holidays). Eavesdropping, Donna gives him a congratulatory hug.
DONNA: Fitzy well done! I can still call you Fitzy right?
DAN: What else are you going to call me?
DONNA: I dunno... Your Worship?
Donna's also excited about the school play.
DONNA: Can we do Hair? Oh, please can we?
DAN: Isn't that the nude play?
DAN: I'm not sure the school council would approve of that, Donna.
DONNA: Think of the money we would save on costumes.
Dan frets, he didn't even think about costumes. But, after a nudge from Donna, Cass volunteers to whip some up for him. Donna looks pleased her mum's making an effort.
Donna's reading Agamemnon in preparation for the auditions. She happily tells her mum all about the story.
DONNA: It's about this chick who's married to a king, but he's away so she's been cheating on him. And there's this fortune teller called Cassandra.
CASS: Ooh! What does she do?
DONNA: She gets killed with an axe.
DONNA: No it's really great though, because she knows she's going to die but no one will listen to her so she bravely faces up to her death anyway, cursing the Gods for not saving her.
CASS: Story of my life.
Cass reckons Donna should go for the part and even offers to make her a kick arse costume so she stands out from the rest of the students. Donna grins, pleased that she seems to be having a normal mother/daughter moment for once in her life.
Didge wonders aloud to Declan and Zeke about what they could do with the money if they got it back. How about buy a new shirt that doesn't make you look like a 60-year-old pensioner, Didge? I'm just saying. Dec and Didge head out, but Zeke's in the mood for some chips. I wonder if he's in the mood for some convicted criminal, too? Zeke flips out when Guy lurks up behind him and demands to know where Katya and the money are.
Zeke tells Guy that the police have the money, but Guy doesn't give two hoots. He tells Zeke he's got 24 hours to come up with the cash or he'll be after him. Petrified, Zeke says he'll get the money.
