Jade and Kyle laugh away as they approach Kate, they're surprised she has a bottle of champagne with her. Kate lies that someone had left it in the beer garden and so she gives it to them. They suggest the three of them hang out but Kate makes an excuse and leaves.
Paul gives Kate Sophie's after- school forms, as Sophie had listed him as her legal guardian. Kate signs the forms, Paul asks if Kate is okay, she says she's fine but she seems upset when she walks away.
Andrew gets off the phone with Red Cotton, they're interested in him as their manager. Andrew tells Sophie that Paul's got a meeting in the city and that Corey will meet her at Harold's. Summer points out that Sophie's grounded but Andrew says he'll cover for her. Summer warns Andrew that this can't go well, but Andrew says it's all going to work out perfectly.
Sophie and Corey are grotesquely snogging for what seems like an eternity when thankfully their drinks arrive distracting them. They awkwardly start chatting about gigs and music. Sophie mentions a band she likes, 'The Dead Weather,' Corey says he's heard of them but when Sophie asks Corey what album and songs he likes, he answers awkwardly that they're all good.
Callum enters and starts talking about Dragon Prophecies, telling them he's stuck at a bit, Corey gives him a tip to help him. Sophie is surprised he knows about the game, so Corey awkwardly says he has a friend who plays but he doesn't remember his friend's name. Cue awkward silence.
Sophie returns from seeing Corey, she's disappointed that he doesn't seem to know much about music and that he plays Dragon Prophecies.
SOPHIE: Now when I look at Corey, all I see is Callum.
ANDREW: You know what, he's probably one of those cool type of nerds.
Andrew points out that he and Summer have very little in common, he thought she was a massive nerd and still does. He tells her boys find it difficult talking to girls and suggests Sophie give Corey another chance. Just then Corey calls Sophie and she doesn't answer.
Sophie leaves #22 and sits down on the wall between #22 and #24, ignoring another call from Corey. Kate leaves her house, as Sophie sees her she's about to rush away when Kate stops her. Kate asks if everything is okay, Sophie says everything's fine and then walks away.
Kate sees Erin sitting alone outside Charlie's, while Jade and Kyle go into Harold's after Kyle keeps intentionally putting his crutches in Jade's way. Kate approaches Erin to apologise for how she seemed last week, explaining that she just wanted to warn Erin about Rhys. Erin begins to work out that Rhys could have easily spoken up about the drinking misunderstanding but didn't and that he used her to get her place on the program. Erin is upset, while Kate explains that Rhys lied about dating her. The two of them decide to have a drink together.
Susan enters making her appointment for Audrey at the vet. Kyle asks why Kate is avoiding the two of them. Kyle suggests Jade and Kate do a girly night.

SUSAN: I could launch my nude modelling career on page three
PAUL: Your what?
SUSAN: Ha ha, so you were listening?
PAUL: Yeah and I'm scarred for life
Paul tells Susan that Priya has applied for Michael's job, explaining that he thinks she won't be suitable because she's too soft for the job, having come from Eden Hills Grammar which has different expectations. Paul tells Susan that he'll give Priya pressurising questions during the interview to see if she has what it takes to be Principal.
Sophie is practicing guitar when Summer enters, Sophie tells her about Corey.
SUMMER: Sometimes it's good to have different interests. I thought Andrew was so up himself when I first met him but it's turned out okay for us.
SOPHIE: That's kinda what Andrew said too. Well he told me how long it took him to start liking you
SUMMER: He said that?
SOPHIE: Yeah and he said he thought you were a nerd at first, so I should give Corey a second chance just in case we turn out like you too
Summer tells Sophie its not her or Andrew's business and that she should make her own decision.
Kate asks Erin what she'll do with her leave, Erin doesn't know. She wonders what she'd do if she didn't have any responsibilities, saying she'd live on the beach somewhere, going swimming every day and eating mango. They both relate with how they've never had a break, going from high school to uni to work, working during the holidays. Erin asks Kate what she would do if she had no responsibilities, suggesting she just gets a van and goes on the road, Kate loves the idea.
Jade and Kyle catch Kate and asks her to go to a Friday night dance party. Kate tells Jade she won't be here, she says she's going travelling. Jade thinks Kate is making an excuse, but asks Kate to let her know when she is available and they'll have a night out then.
Priya is in the middle of her interview. Paul asks why Priya didn't show much innovation while she was acting Principal, and asks Priya whether she agreed with the way Michael ran the school. She doesn't want to comment.
Priya tells Paul she's the new Principal of Erinsborough High, and they clink their champagne glasses.
Andrew walks in, Summer questions him why he's pressurising Sophie to stay together with a boy she doesn't like.
SUMMER: So you're telling me that you can't sign a local band without exploiting your 14 year old cousin?
Summer tells Andrew to fix things right now.
Sophie gets a facebook message from Corey: 'Awesome day w Soph. Can't wait 4 next time ' Summer watches while Andrew tells Sophie that she should end things with Corey if she wants to. Summer leaves, and while she's away Andrew tells Sophie that he will be signing Red Cotton in two days and he wants her to hold off until then, give Corey another chance.
SOPHIE: So Corey gets another chance, you get Red Cotton, and I get... what?
ANDREW: Okay I'll see what I can pull. Alright free tickets to every single gig. Plus backstage passes. Complimentary CDs and face time with Griffin. Come on Soph that is good.
Summer returns, Andrew and Sophie say everything is sorted. As Sophie leaves, Andrew and Summer kiss happily.
