- Tash and Summer competing for Chris's friendship
- Callum searching his Gran's old house for clues
- Sophie and Callum checking out an abandoned warehouse
- Callum getting trapped under a fallen motorbike
Sonya races in, extremely distressed, and manages to lift the motorbike off Callum with Sophie's help. Sonya tries to wake Callum up, muttering, "I should have told you", before instructing Sophie to lead the paramedics their way. The ambos start work on Callum and ask Sonya if she's his mother. She almost says 'yes' out of shock before Sophie says they're his friends. Sophie tries Toadie's mobile again, getting through this time. Toadie's horrified to hear what happened and says he'll meet them at the hospital.
Callum's wheeled into emergency but Karl stops Sonya from following him in and says he'll do everything he can. Sophie's still upset and asks what they're going to do if Cal doesn't wake up, but this makes Sonya angry and she snaps at poor Sophie for snooping around the warehouse. Jade arrives and drags her sister into the waiting room, telling her to calm down. Sonya explains what happened to Callum and says it's all her fault: "If he doesn't wake up he'll never know how much I love him."
Tash is trying to get Chris involved in a discussion about the hotness of "the blonde guy from Glee" versus Jake Gyllenhaal, but Chris reminds her he's trying to work. Tash tries to reason with Chris that she's just trying to suss out his type and help him in the love life department - he'll never find anyone if he doesn't put in the effort.
Tash eventually persuades Chris to do a Zumba class with her later on, but he is the very definition of unco when they do a routine. Tash is pleased, though, when the male instructor (Will) takes an interest in Chris and she gets them chatting together after class. When Summer stops by she's perturbed that Tash seems to be winning the 'I'm a better BFF than you' contest.
Sophie rushes to Kate for a hug when she arrives to pick her up. When Sonya hears how guilty and upset Sophie is, she approaches them and apologises for yelling at Sophie earlier. She adds that Sophie was really brave the whole time. Kate asks how Sonya's coping, but Sonya just says she's going to check if there's any news.
A short while later Jade lets Sonya know that Toadie's stuck in traffic, just as Karl finds them and says Callum's being prepped for surgery. Karl says that Cal has some fractured ribs and internal bleeding, but they're in short supply of Cal's blood type. Sonya flips out and demands Karl take her blood, insisting that she's a match with Callum.
First Commercial Break
Karl fixes up the paperwork for Sonya's blood to be screened while Sonya tries to downplay her earlier hysteria by claiming that Callum did a project on blood types - that's how she knew she was a match. Jade reluctantly agrees with her.
While the girls are waiting in the corridor, Sonya starts to worry about Karl working out the connection and telling Toadie. But Jade tries to calm her down and says whatever happens there's nothing she can do about it now. Toadie finally arrives and finds out more details from the girls, but Sonya just keeps saying how sorry she is. Toadie hugs her and says they'll get through this together.
Tash is on the phone to Michael, begging him to let her stay out for another hour so she can keep tabs on Chris and Will's coffee date. But she needn't have bothered because the boys cut their meeting short. Chris explains to Tash that they had nothing in common - Will didn't even own a TV (plus he was wearing hideous 80s style workout leggings - that's enough to put anyone off).
Summer suddenly appears with a guy in tow - Darren the electrician who worked on the rewiring at #26 - and leaves him to chat with Chris while the girls go off to the side to bicker. Tash says Summer's just trying to one- up her in the friendship stakes, but Summer proclaims her innocence. Meanwhile, poor Chris is throwing them the 'WTF? Save me!' eyes but they don't help him out.
Toadie holds Sonya's hand while they wait things out. He says how much of a nightmare Callum was when he first took charge of him, but he knew everything would work out in the end.
TOADIE: It's amazing how the universe works, isn't it? Putting the three of us together like this.
SONYA: (quietly) Yeah.
TOADIE: We could have lived separate lives. Never met.
SONYA: Do you really believe in fate?
TOADIE: Absolutely. Don't you?
SONYA: I'm not so sure.
TOADIE: How else do you explain it? How we ended up here together? I mean if one thing had have been different in my life, well then we may never have met each other. If the accident didn't happen then I'd probably be still married to Dee. Or if things worked out with Steph, and we might have had a family of our own, then I wouldn't have Callum. I wouldn't have you. See? It's fate.
Sonya tearfully says what if it wasn't fate and they were here in the hospital because of some other reason. She buries her face in her hands and says she's so tired of everything. Toadie assumes she means waiting for news, but becomes confused when Sonya says she doesn't mean that. Jade arrives with coffees before anything more can be said, so Sonya steps outside for some fresh air.
Second Commercial Break
Tash wants to go and rescue Chris, but Summer grabs her arm and tells her to leave them alone. Tash says how pathetic Summer is for trying to compete with her when all she's trying to do is be a good friend to Chris.
TASH: As if Chris is going to be interested in an electrician!
SUMMER: He's doing a VET course, Tash. It's a lot more appropriate than an aerobics instructor.
TASH: It's Zumba.
Their bickering is eventually brought to an end when Chris storms over to them and tells them to "shut the hell up". Chris says that Darren left because they were screeching at one another and that he doesn't appreciate being treated like a charity case. He warns them that if they keep trying to score points against one another then he's going to cut them both out of his life.
Sonya whispers to Jade that this whole ordeal has shown her what's most important. When Callum wakes up she's going to tell him that she loves him - and that she's his mum (how Toadie didn't hear them when he was, like, a centimetre away I'll never know). Karl rushes in and tells them that everything went well with Callum's surgery and he'll make a full recovery. Toadie leaps on Karl for a hug and says that was the longest wait in the world. When Karl leaves, Sonya asks Jade to give her and Toadie a few minutes alone. Jade looks concerned but says she'll go and update Sophie and Kate with the good news.
Tash and Summer watch Chris as he pedals furiously on a bike (his way of trying to work off a bad mood). The girls finally realise that they're getting nowhere trying to compete with one another, and if they both want to be Chris's friend they're going to have to try and mend their own friendship too. Summer apologises again for her part in the mess (sleeping with Andrew), while Tash concedes that the whole fake pregnancy thing got way too out of hand. A tentative truce has begun.
Toadie doesn't understand why Sonya's acting so strangely and reminds her that the accident wasn't her fault. He says he loves her, and Sonya returns the sentiment, but she also says she's sorry for making bad decisions, being selfish and barging into their lives. Toadie's still completely confused.
SONYA: I need you to listen. When we first met, it wasn't as it seemed...
But now it's Karl's turn to interrupt the serious moment when he pops his head in to tell them they can see Callum. Toadie puts the conversation on hold and takes Sonya's hand, leading her to Cal's room.
Third Commercial Break
Toadie goes to Callum's bedside and strokes his hair, but Cal's feeling restless and is having flashbacks to his mother again. When Toadie urges Sonya to come closer, Callum's flashbacks merge with reality and his heart rate increases. The face in his mind becomes clear and he's hit with a sudden realisation.
Sonya gapes at him in shock while Toadie tries to explain that it's just Sonya and he's probably woozy from the surgery. But Callum keeps insisting she's his mum.
CALLUM: It's her, I remember.
TOADIE: Sonya can you...
SONYA: (looking at Callum) I'm so sorry, baby. I'm his mother, Toad.
Toadie can only stare at her in utter disbelief while Sonya looks tearful yet relieved that her secret is finally out in the open.
(Tomorrow on Neighbours)
SONYA: I never meant for you to find out like this.
CALLUM: Why did she pretend to...
TOADIE: Shh, you need to calm down.
(Toadie seeks out Susan for support)
TOADIE: The things that she has done to him.
SUSAN: (angry) Toadie, the things that she did to you.
(Lyn and Susan have clashing opinions on the matter)
LYN: Susan you're being naive.
SUSAN: A lie is a lie.
LYN: Oh right.
LIBBY: Both of you, I've had enough!
(Libby finds Toadie and gives him a big hug)
TOADIE: My son is in there!
SONYA: It was never meant to be like this, you have to let me explain.
TOADIE: You stay away from us!
