Outside No. 24, Piper is playing "he loves me/he loves me not" with the petals of the yellow flower Tyler gave her. Brad spies her from behind a bush, and Piper tells Brad it's nothing. He pesters her, so Piper tells him that it's just a guy from school. Brad offers her his support - just as long as it's not Jayden or Ashtyn!
Daniel seeks out Terese and tells her he's applied for a job at Lassiter's. She's skeptical, but he explains that he's grown up a lot since he worked there previously.
DANIEL: I can't just keep waiting for things to fall into my lap. I need to be responsible, dependable, and work towards something.
He explains that there won't be a conflict of interest as he's no longer talking to Paul, but he'll need Terese to vouch for him. She apologises as she's not allowed any connection to the Robinson family, but wishes him luck.
Paige's leg is still sore and she wants to have fully recovered for the wedding, so Mark offers to care for her until she does. He says he hasn't heard from Michelle, and that she's probably long gone, and Paige promises to cut off contact.
Brad is sanding away at a (slightly phallic) wooden sculpture of two lovers embracing, and he tells Aaron and Tyler that it's for Lauren. Brad tells them that Piper's fallen for someone at school and they'd better not break her heart. Tyler says he doesn't know anything but looks incredibly guilty! As soon as Brad is gone, Aaron starts pestering Tyler that he's the object of Piper's affections. He tells "Gertie" to sort it out!
A suited woman approaches the desk (with a fantastic Scottish-Australian accent) - it's Mrs. Stefan Dennis Julie Quill, and she isn't impressed that Terese didn't serve her straight away. Terese apologises, and they make small talk saying that they haven't seen each other in 10 years. Since then she's married the boss! Terese agrees to give her a tour.
Tyler has called a meeting with Piper, but struggles to find the right words.
TYLER: It's you and me.
PIPER: What about you and me?
TYLER: Well if you're feeling any... feelings about me, you can't. Because you're Dad would kill me.
Piper takes the news surprisingly well and promises that they're good. Tyler leaves and Piper calls on Paige for advice - what to do when there's a parent shape obstacle in the way? Paige tells her as long as she isn't hurting anyone, she should feel free to do what she wants.
No. 32 Backyard
Paige is on the phone to Mark and promises that no one is behind the washing machine about to jump out at her. As soon as she hangs up she hears a noise and calls out, creeping around the side of the house. She discovers Michelle crumpled on the floor with a face that's black and blue. She whimpers for Paige to help her.
Terese expresses her surprise to Julie that she got to keep her job, and Julie laughs that Shay likes to be dramatic.
JULIE: I'm sorry about what you went through with Ezra Hanley. The man is a pig. If I'd have known what type of person he was, I would never had hired him.
TERESE: Thank you for saying that.
JULIE: His criminal behaviour aside, there is nothing I hate more than sexism in the work place.
Julie explains that when she took over the Quill group after her husband's death nobody took her seriously. Terese says she had similar dealings with Paul, and Julie says that their paths have crossed a few times as husband and wife and he doesn't play well with others. She's interested to hear that Daniel has applied for a job despite his family loyalties, and wants to interview him.
No. 32 Backyard
Michelle explains that Dimato found her immediately, and she worries that there's a leak in the police department, but Paige dismisses her concerns as paranoia. Michelle asks if she can stay at No. 32 for a few hours until she can get some more accommodation sorted but Paige looks very unsure.
Tyler tells Aaron about his conversation with Paige, and says she took his warning well. As Tyler is explaining that she probably does like someone else and she's not serious, we cut to...
...Piper taking out a journal, with the flower pressed into one of the pages and gazing at it fondly.
Terese gets off the phone to someone saying they should thank Mrs Quill's orders.
PAUL: Mrs Quill's orders - sounds like some depressing radio drama!
Paul explains that he's spent the day trying to get gazebo orders, and asks how Terese is finding Julie, but she won't say anything. He goads about how she pushed the first wife out and slept her way into the job, but Terese jumps to Julie's defence saying she's already met her. Paul is shocked, and says he's going to head to the hotel straight away.
TERESE: Don't you dare go down there and make a scene. It will make life for me very, very difficult!
PAUL: I just want to go down there and congratulate her on her treachery!
TERESE: If she gets a whiff of our association, or you living here, she'll fire me! Please, I'm taking enough risks as it is.
Paul reluctantly agrees to stay away.
In the sun room, Michelle thanks Paige for agreeing to let her stay. Paige says she's going to get groceries, and promises not to tell Mark but urges Michelle to go to the police. At that moment Mark appears, and Michelle rushes to hide behind the sofa. Mark is concerned that her kidnapper is still at large, but Paige reassures him that they were after Michelle. Mark says that it'll be hard to trust Michelle if she came forward and tells Paige to forget about her.
Daniel is having his job interview with Julie, who expresses her surprise at his interest, and highlights his previous employment at Lassiter's. Daniel explains that although they've fallen out, he doesn't want the job to punish Paul. Julie admits that she wasn't going to give him the job, and was just curious about Paul. Daniel asks her to consider, and launches into a customer/employee role-play about scratchy towels and noisy mini-bars. He manages to impress Julie, but she says that there are too many complaints from his last stint, so the answer is still no.
No. 32 Backyard
Michelle is reading the Bible to Paige's surprise. Michelle says she should head off but winces in pain, and Paige invites her to stay for longer as she doesn't have any other options.
PAIGE: I know you've done some bad things in the past, but no one deserves to go through what you've gone through.
Paul starts quizzing Terese about Julie again, and Terese asks why he's so concerned. Paul admits that they had a holiday romance many years ago, and Terese doesn't seem surprised! Right on cue, Julie enters.
PAUL: Julie Quill, so lovely to see you.
JULIE: Now come on Paul, this must be horrible for you.
PAUL: On the contrary actually, because I know whatever goes up, always comes down.
Julie flags down Daniel and tells Paul that he interviewed for a job. Paul is outraged, but Daniel explains that it's part of him growing up. She offers him a part-time position in front of Paul, and Daniel looks delighted.
PAUL: Is this your way of twisting the knife?
JULIE: Don't blame your nephew Paul. I'm sure the breakdown of your relationship is all on you. Just like all your other failings.
Having watched the conversation with Nate, Terese quickly steps in to break it up. She asks Nate to escort Paul from the premises, who seems more than happy to. Julie explains that she understands Daniel's motives are sincere having witnessed him with Paul, but warns Terese that if there are any problems with Daniel, it's all on her.
It's nighttime, and Michelle lying on the sofa and is on the phone to someone.
MICHELLE: The plan worked, I'm staying the night. Don't worry, she has no idea.
Michelle hangs up the phone, and realises some of her make-up has rubbed off on the pillow. She quickly reapplies make-up to her bruise - it's a fake!
- Mark discovers Michelle at No. 32
- Paige asks Mark if he saw Michelle's bruise
- Paul points out the irony of Daniel's career starting just as his ends
- Amy tells Daniel he can work things out with Paul
- Belinda helps Toadie with his physiotherapy
- Steph asks Sonya why she gave Belinda the job
