Bailey is watching a news report giving out a weather warning (it's going to be bad) as Daniel/Amber enter the house and plans on firmly watching the storm inside unlike his sister and her boyfriend who want to take photos of it outside. Before they head outside, Daniel throws Bailey his iPhone as he is fed up of Paul using it to contact him!
From the way they are scantily dressed, it would appear that Paige/Mark have TITTNL and things are just a tad awkward as they have a glass of water. It's then confirmed that they have TITTNL and despite the bad weather, decide to go out on a proper date. However while Paige heads back to the bedroom to get dressed, Mark has an attack of the guilts as he looks at a photo of himself/Kate.
Kyle checks to see what Georgia needs (water) after battening down the hatches outside with Sonya. Toadie brings through a now-wakened Nell and discovers that the roof is leaking.
Paul is ranting off at Sheila about Daniel but she's more interested in the body language Paige/Mark are giving off!
SHEILA: Those two have taken house sharing to a whole new level!
Paul isn't impressed at Mark moving on and goes over to confront him with it. Mark is refusing to talk about it, so Sheila intervenes to show him what Daniel is up to (out with Amber in the storm) and he isn't at all impressed at his nephew!
When they arrive home, Paige asks if she did something weird after Mark went all quiet on her in the pub after she returned from the toilet (this is when Paul went to confront him) and he replies that she didn't do anything. Happy with this answer, she heads off for a shower.
It would appear that Paul's words have gotten to Mark and he digs out Kate's engagement ring. He is looking at it when Paige comes back to get some towels and asks him about it. When he says what it is, she tells him that he doesn't need to hide it/anything of Kate's because she understands that she was a huge part of his life.
MARK: She was. She still is in a way.
Paige is ready to call a halt to them as she, "can't compete with a ghost," and is told that he doesn't expect her to and adds that he didn't expect to be in this situation so quickly. She suggests they go back to being just friends and from his silence on the matter, that is what it now will be.
Bailey is taking a close interest online to the weather forecast and looks rather worried.
Sonya shows Sheila the old fashioned supplies she's bought (candles/batteries) while she waits for her order.
Paul catches up with his nephew (and Amber) to express his annoyance at him not settling down, comparing talking to Daniel like banging his head off a brick wall! When Daniel doesn't come back at him, Paul then brings up how he's been in his previous relationships, in particular with his last girlfriend and telling Amber the story behind the tattoo.
DANIEL: What are you trying to do here?
PAUL: I just want you to make the most of your opportunities.
"I am," Daniel cries out but his interpretation is spending time with the girl he loves! Paul tells him this is irresponsible and reckless behaviour and the pair then dispute what exactly that is, which culminates in Daniel telling Paul he is moving out and he/Amber leave unwilling to discuss it any more with his uncle.
Sonya returns with their order and supplies as Toadie is fretting about more leaks appearing in the roof. Kyle is ordered to go to the aid of Lassiters after initially turning down the work citing he's to take care of Georgia (it's her who orders him to go as they need the money!).
Sheila is having a go at Paul for his attitude towards Daniel and offers him her tuppenceworth - he's to go find Daniel and set things straight.
SHEILA: Otherwise by this time tomorrow you're going to be rattling around that ivory penthouse tower of yours all alone.
To make sure he goes, she even assists him putting his jacket on!
Mark has called round to get some advice from Toadie about Paige.
MARK: I feel like I've crossed some sort of line. It felt right at the time, or at least it did until Paul got stuck into me.
And Paige is having a similar conversation with Bailey because Lauren isn't home yet.
Number 30/Number 32
Toad's advice is for Mark is to not let Paul dictate when he can move on. Mark now ponders on the "move on" bit as he's unsure if he has done that.
Meanwhile, Paige is kicking herself for moving things on with Mark but Bailey is out of his depth and can't offer her any advice.
Back with the boys and Toad is hesitant of confirming if Mark is at the stage of being able to move on, saying that everyone is different, but when it is time, he has to make that step "'cos you're not living your life otherwise."
Bailey has zoned out to concentrate on the weather as Paige debates whether she should move out of the street or not (she doesn't want to since she's just getting everything on track). She eventually goes to see what he is looking at and the storm is now forecast to be a tornado!
Kyle is repeating that same info to Paul/Wendy but Paul's more concerned about making contact with Daniel (he leaves a voicemail) and eventually asks Wendy to organise a car (his own one is still being detailed). "You're not going to go out there?!" Kyle asks and Paul replies he is to go find Daniel/Amber and "a little bit of bad weather" isn't going to stop him!
We see the first sign of the tornado as Mark leaves #30 and we head into the commercial break.
Break over and Mark has made it safely home and has told Paige about the impending tornado. The tension from earlier seems to have gone and they sit closely as she admits that she is freaked out and tells him a story from her childhood as to why she is scared. In return, he tells her about watching an electrical storm in the Blue Mountains that he watched alone. "At least you were safe," is her stance just as the lights start to flicker in the house. The pair seem to really bond with each other, so much so, Mark decides that they should give whatever it is that is happening between them a chance to develop and to ignore the 'friends only' that Paige wanted them to revert to.
PAIGE: Are you sure? I can clearly understand if you are not ready. It wouldn't be fair on either of us.
MARK: It wouldn't and yes, I'm sure.
Mark then leans over and the pair begin pashing.
Road outside Grease Monkeys
Daniel totally loves the bad weather as he pulls the car to a stop just outside Grease Monkeys. Amber though is still stewing on what Paul said in the bar and the pair then argue over his ex as the car buffets around in the strong wind. Eventually Amber calls a stop as she's heard enough and demands he never talks to her about his ex again!
Bailey still has his eyes glued to watching the weather radar on his computer.
Toadie leaves Georgia (and Bossy) sitting on the sofa to go outside to make sure everything is tied down. The storm blows the front door open and before Georgia can get there to close it, Bossy runs outside.
The house is in darkness with just the light from Bailey's laptop/a lightning strike illuminating the kitchen.
We can see the reason for the houses now being in darkness, a electricity pole has come down in the storm.
Toadie re-enters the house and after closing the front door, calls out for Georgia but she isn't there.
Paul is driving in the storm but is having great difficulty seeing due to the windscreen fogging up/the velocity of the falling rain.
Road outside Grease Monkeys
Amber/Daniel are still arguing over his ex and he is trying to convince her that she is the only one that matters to him now when suddenly the stationary car gets picked up tossed around 360°.
- People realising Georgia is missing.
- Lauren telling Brad that Lou knows about the kiss and that they should come clean.
- Sheila concerned for Paul.
- Karl trying to help Susan.
