- Sonya tells Troy that she'll never let him have access to Callum.
- Ajay reveals that Troy is now his client and he'll be handling the access case.
Toadie and Sonya are fed up of Troy. Toadie says they'll stand up to him. Callum comes in and realises something has happened. They tell him about the legal action. Callum asks what he can do to help. Then he goes over and comforts Sonya.
When he's gone, Sonya looks up at Toadie.
SONYA: We have to win, Jarrod.
TOADIE: We will.
Callum sees Troy going into Ajay's office and scowls.
Rani comes in and sees Callum sitting at a table. He blanks her completely. After a while he tells her angrily that Ajay is working for Troy and he doesn't want to talk to her anymore.
Jade and Kyle are back from Sydney and Jade is teasing him about being afraid of flying. Rhys comes out and she tells him that the people in Sydney loved her bootcamp idea. Rhys tells Kyle that he's heard about a job for him - someone has just moved into No.32 and needs some renovations done.
Tash can't understand why it's so quiet at Charlie's today. Paul says it's probably Tash's terrible service(!)
Vanessa's cupcakes are selling very quickly. Chris comes in and buys a cupcake for Tash.
There are no customers. Chris gives Tash the cupcake and tells her they taste amazing. She tastes it and agrees with him. Tash is surprised to hear that Harold's Store is full and says the cakes are stealing her customers!
Cakes are still selling very well. Vanessa gives Lucas a cake to thank him for giving the idea of selling her own cakes.
Jade comes to see Sonya and tells her that everything is perfect - the meeting in Sydney went while and her and Kyle's relationship is great. Sonya grimaces and Jade asks her what's wrong.
Kyle comes round to see Troy. He's shocked to see him. Troy invites him in.
Jade can't believe that Troy is back.
Troy tells Kyle that he only wants a chance to start over by moving to Ramsay Street. He wants to employ Kyle to do renovations, but Kyle isn't sure.
Jade looks at Troy's psychiatric report and says it changes nothing. Sonya is worried it will convince the authorities he has changed. Jade is appalled to hear that Troy has moved into the street and quickly runs out.
Kyle tells Troy that he can't take the work - he's Jade's boyfriend and Toadie and Sonya are like family.
As Kyle is leaving, Jade rushes up.
JADE: This is sick, Troy, even for you, don't you have a life of your own to lead?
TROY: I just want to see my son. I've got rights, you know!
JADE: You lost your rights a long time ago. Come on, Kyle, let's get out of here.
TROY: See youse round.
Jade is trying to do a spreadsheet, but she's obviously very upset. Kyle offers to have a word with Troy, but Jade tells him not to, and tells him crossly to give her a bit of space.
There's a knock at the door. Callum doesn't want to answer it in case it's Troy, but it turns out to be Rani. She apologises for Ajay working for Troy. Toadie tells her it's not her fault. Rani tells Callum that she'll try to talk Ajay out of representing Troy, but what her dad does at work is nothing to do with her.
Vanessa sells Tory a cupcake with the rest of his groceries. On his way out he sees Lucas, who squares up to him.
LUCAS: You do anything to hurt Sonya, you'll have me to answer to.
Tash and Chris come in. Tash moans that her regulars are all at Harold's Store (apparently they decided they'd prefer a cupcake to a beer).
Tash goes over to Vanessa and spins her a sob story about being kicked out of her house. Vanessa rolls her eyes and says at least Tash isn't pregnant(!) Tash asks Vanessa to make her some cupcakes to thank Karl for letting her stay. Vanessa suggests instead that she could show Tash how to bake them.
Jade is doing situps when Troy comes along. Needless to say she is not happy to see him.
JADE: Give it up, Troy! There's no way they're going to let you have access to Callum!
TROY: We'll see. I've got a decent lawyer and he's pretty hopeful.
JADE: Whatever, he's just as deluded as you are.
TROY: Nothing's changed, has it. You're still as feisty as ever.
JADE: A lot's changed, actually.
TROY: I'm glad things are working out for you and lover- boy. How long you been seeing him?
JADE: You just mind your own business. Look, none of us are scared of you, OK, so just pack up your sad little life and crawl back under some other rock.
TROY: My life's here now. If you want to make things easy on your sister, maybe you should help me.
JADE: I'll never help you.
TROY: I always get what I want, Jade. And you're not as tough as you pretend you are. So run along, little girl.
Harold's Store (kitchen)
Tash is reluctantly learning to bake cupcakes. Over a musical montage. The cupcakes come out of the oven all wonky and the icing looks terrible. When Vanessa has gone, he tells Tash off for using Vanessa.
Tash is serving up the cupcakes (which have mysteriously become non- wonky and perfectly iced). Paul looks at his cupcake suspiciously and it seems that all the customers have returned.
Vanessa has got wind of Tash's deviousness. She comes in and takes Paul's cupcake out of his hand as he's about to bite into it(!) She recognises it and then goes over to confront Tash. Tash refuses to stop selling the cupcakes, so Vanessa writes her up an invoice for the ingredients! Then she stalks out, remarking, "Stupido bambino!" Paul just snatches his cupcake back.
Kyle and Rhys come in. Jade is shutting Kyle out again, but he tells her he has to talk to her. She just runs out.
Jade has come to see Troy.
JADE: I'm doing the talking now. You're scum. I know it, Sonya knows it, and we're going to make sure everyone else knows it too.
TROY: Oooh, fighting words.
JADE: You'd better believe it.
TROY: You never learn, do you?
JADE: Oh, I learned plenty. You used to be able to push me around, but I'm not that stupid little girl anymore.
TROY: Yeah, you've definitely matured. Maybe we should pick up from where we left off.
JADE: What you did to me was unforgivable.
TROY: I'm not looking for forgiveness.
JADE: Getting involved with you was the biggest mistake I ever made!
TROY: Are you sure? Because I can see that the stupid little girl who needed me so much is still in there. Cowering in the corner. This tough act of yours might fool Kyle, but I know you better.
JADE: No, you don't.
TROY: You haven't changed that much. even now, you still come running back.
JADE: Leaving you was the best decision I ever made.
TROY: And I wasn't kidding when I told you you'd regret it.
JADE: You stay away from my family, or I swear, I'll make *you* regret it.
Troy just smirks and closes the door.
No.26/No.30/No.32 (No dialogue)
Jade is sitting brooding. Kyle is worried about her, but doesn't try to get her to talk again. Toadie comforts Sonya. Kyle goes off to his bedroom resignedly. Toadie holds Sonya's hand as they and Callum sit down to dinner. Troy sits in an old chair, smirking. Jade starts to cry at the kitchen table.
Tomorrow on Neighbours
- Summer is doing a promotion for The Right Prescription. Tash thinks it's to help Andrew out.
- Vanessa is having a scan for the baby. Rhys tells Lucas that Vanessa doesn't need him, but Susan encourages him to go to the hospital - he's the baby's father and it would be a shame to miss it.
- At the hospital, Rhys is there as a doctor. He invites Vanessa in for her scan. Lucas rolls his eyes.
