Andrew is lying dejectedly on his bunk.
Summer is studying. She finds a quote on a post- it note and flashes back to cheating on the original exam.
Just then, Andrew calls. She rejects the call.

Chris tells Andrew that Summer is probably too busy studying to answer the phone. Chris thinks Summer should confess about the cheating, but Andrew shushes him.
Susan is trying to cheer Summer up and says she'll be fine on the replacement exam.
The phone rings and it's Andrew - this time, Summer answers. They chat for a while but Summer says she needs to go and study.

Chris tries to cheer Andrew up by suggesting going on a run to the shop. He promises to drive so that everyone will think Andrew's car is his(!)
Paul is sitting staring at Kate(!) She is just leaving when Noah comes in looking rather gormless. She pushes past him and leaves the shop.
Paul has brought Noah to see Priya. She warns him Paul that he'd better not have coerced Noah, but Paul asks her to just hear Noah out.
Noah tells Priya that he came voluntarily to tell her what happened with Kate - he thought Kate would have told her.
NOAH: Sophie really wanted guitar lessons, but Kate couldn't afford it. Then I needed help with history, so she offered to tutor me instead. She always took the time out to help me, even if it mucked around, you know, with what she was doing.
PRIYA: At any time, did Kate overstep her role?
NOAH: No! When we were in the classroom, she was just my teacher. And working on the History Wall together...I thought things were different. I thought we were on the same level. We'd talk about things like we were friends.
PRIYA: So Kate told you personal information?
NOAH: Only because I asked. I wanted to get to know her. That night at the History Wall. She'd just found out that her ex- boyfriend died. She was really upset. And after everything she'd done for me, I just wanted to help. We kissed. And I thought that meant we'd be together. But Kate pulled away. She wouldn't talk to me. And I thought she was just waiting until after I graduated. But she set me straight. And I got really cut up about it. That's why I said all that stuff at the History Wall, I just wanted her to talk to me again.
PRIYA: She should never have kissed you.
NOAH: No, I wanted it to happen! I made it happen! Every chance I got to be around Kate, I took it. I thought she wanted to be around me too. But she was just being nice. I was the one that went after Kate. I never meant to hurt her. I seriously don't want to wreck her life.
Outside the School
Noah comes out. Paul asks him how it went and he says he thinks Priya listened. Noah gives Paul a letter for Kate - he's never going to see her again and wanted her to know that he's sorry.
Paul takes the letter, and when Noah has gone, drops it into the bin.
Susan is fussing over Summer who is still studying. When she's gone to bed, Summer answers the phone to Andrew. He asks her if everything is OK for tomorrow. Summer asks him to stop worrying about her, and go out and have some fun. He tells her he'll call her tomorrow before the exam.

Andrew tells Chris he's ready to hit the town now(!)
Some footage of raucous, drunken partying follows, the sequence ending on a photo of Andrew kissing Chris on the cheek!
Byron Bay Backpackers (the following morning)
Chris staggers out of bed and wakes Andrew up by tipping water on him(!) He's gutted to find that he's slept late - he didn't call Summer before her exam. Both are struggling to remember the previous night(!) Andrew looks through the photos on his phone and things start to come back to him. They start remembering a tattoo parlour and suddenly a look of horror come over their faces.
Andrew staggers to his feet and realises he's got a tattoo - of some Chinese characters.
Summer is off to her exam and wondering why she hasn't heard from Andrew.
Priya comes in to see Kate and to tell her that she's decided to handle the incident with Noah internally rather than reporting Kate to the VIT.
PRIYA: You know, if you'd told me the circumstances to begin with, we could have avoided all this. I'm very sorry for your loss. Noah spoke to me. He made it clear that he pursued you. But in future you have to remember that whatever's happening in your personal life can have a real impact on your work. So if you're ever struggling, it's always better to come and see me or another supervisor. There's no shame in that. As long as you understand the passing of your ex is the only reason I'm not taking this further.
KATE: I do. Thank you, Priya.
When Priya has gone, Kate asks another worker to cover for her and walks out.

Andrew, in a fit of bravado, is telling the others in his dorm that his tattoo says "Summer" and she's going to love it. The girl does think it's quite romantic, but then Macca has a look and starts laughing. It doesn't say "Summer", it says "Pickles". Everyone except Andrew and Chris fall around laughing. (Although Chris is making an effort to keep a straight face!)
Kate storms around to Paul's and considering he's just saved her career, very ungratefully tells him that he should have kept out of things!
Sophie is sitting on a bench.
Kate tells Paul that she didn't want to use Brennan's death as an excuse (!)
Noah sees Sophie and tells her that it wasn't Kate's fault. He starts trying to explain that Kate had been upset that night.
Kate asks Paul not to tell Sophie about Brennan.
Noah tells Sophie about Brennan. She looks shocked.
Sophie storms in and starts having a go at Kate for not telling her about Mark. Apparently the whole world revolves around Sophie because she starts shouting and telling Kate she's always making decisions for her.
SOPHIE: You do what's easy for you!
Kate finally flips.
KATE: Do you think this is easy?! Dealing with all of this on my own? Every decision I make, it's about you. Not me and what I want, it's you.
SOPHIE: Well, I never asked you to do that.
KATE: I'm your sister, Sophie, it's my job.
SOPHIE: No, it's not!
KATE: Who else is going to do it, Soph?
SOPHIE: You know what, I wish Mum was still here!
KATE: You know what, so do I! I don't like this any more than you do. I'm sick of it.
Sophie runs out.
Paul has come to see Kate, but she won't let him in. He talks to her through the screen instead, saying that Sophie is at his place.
PAUL: This is all going to work out fine. Sophie's going to come around, you're going to go back to school...
KATE: No, I'm not going back.
PAUL: But you spoke to Priya.
KATE: I don't want to go back. I don't want to be a teacher anymore.
PAUL: You don't mean that!
KATE: Yeah, I do. Every decision I make, it's about Sophie or Harry.
PAUL: But teaching is about you, I mean, it's what you love.
KATE: I'm always putting other people first. Worrying about their feelings and what's good for them.
PAUL: Yeah, that's because you're a decent person.
KATE: When do I get to put me first? When Sophie graduates? When I'm fifty? Ever?
PAUL: Alright, well listen, open this door and we can talk about it.
KATE: Don't patronise me, Paul. I know exactly what I'm saying. I've spent my whole life trying to do the right thing, trying to be the responsible one and for what?! For what?! I'm miserable, my sister hates me...
PAUL: She doesn't...
KATE: So stuff it! Stuff teaching, stuff trying to do the right thing, stuff Sophie, stuff caring about everyone else. I'm done.
She slams the door in his face.
Sophie is sulking in the living room.
Kate is sorting through laundry angrily.
Noah draws a last addition to the History Wall. It's Kate's face.
He looks at it for a short while, then picks up his bag and walks away.
