- Clive asks Dipi whether she's spoken to Sheila.
- Ned and Bea talk about Cassius.
- Sheila tells Cassius she doesn't think Tyler's charge should have been upgraded to murder.

Xanthe cheerfully tells Clive that her seizures shouldn't stop her from being able to become a Doctor. Clive acts supportive after which Xanthe admits she has a long road ahead but is willing to give it her best. She soon heads off to study for a Maths test with Yashvi. Sheila jokingly tells Xanthe not to let Yashvi near her internet banking password. Once on their own, Sheila says she has the place to herself, but Clive nervously insists that they stay at The Waterhole. As Sheila heads to the bar, Clive looks at his phone.
Dipi hands Ned a triple shot Mocha and comments on how tired he looks. As Ned is late for his shift, he rushes off but bumps into Shane, spilling coffee all over them.
Shane unsuccessfully tries to get Dipi to take a break, before she received a text from Clive reading 'I need you ASAP' followed by a winking smiley. She turns over her phone in order to hide the text. Shane looks deflated as Dipi tells him to study if he's got free time.
Yashvi gets frustrated being unable to find her 'lucky towel' to which Xanthe acts bemused, asking why she can't just use another towel. Yashvi says that she's had bad games when she hasn't taken that specific towel and ribs Xanthe about believing love at first sight. Yashvi mentions that the whole team knows about her lucky towel and won't be happy if she turns up without it but Xanthe just laughs.
Clive tells Dipi over the phone that he'll meet her out the back of Harold's Store. As he hangs up, Sheila approaches and tells him that she has to go to Harold's as the milk order is short. He offers to go for her but she says she's happy to go herself, saying they can head back to hers after she's done. After Sheila leaves, Clive rings Dipi to tell her that Sheila's heading over but he still needs to urgently see her.
Ned and Bea enter the bar talking about Cassius and his strange behaviour. She tells Ned about the file and asks if he's noticed anything else about Cassius. Ned mentions the time that Cassius' mum came to town but says that it all got sorted. Ned tells Bea to ring Piper if she's that concerned and rushes off as he's busy at work.
Piper gushes to Xanthe about Aaron and David's wedding. Xanthe soon asks how Cassius found the wedding and Piper admits that it was a bit awkward when she had to introduce him to Fay. Xanthe jokes that wedding bells could be on the cards for them soon but Piper implies that it's too soon.
Elly enters and asks Xanthe how her studying is going. She says that she was with Yashvi who ended up being pre-occupied about her towel. Elly and Piper look confused but Xanthe tells them it's not important.
As Xanthe heads off to the library, Elly says she hopes she's not pushing herself too hard, but Xanthe admits she feels pressure because of her dad. She talks about him thinking of taking out a loan and how she feels guilty about it. Elly and Piper reassure her that he just wants to make sure her dreams come true.
Xanthe heads off as Piper receives a call from Bea.
Piper walks up the stairs as Cassius is reading Tyler's file. He quickly hides it before Piper mentions the call she got from Bea. Cassius acts shifty and Piper soon notices the file he's tried to hide. She picks up the file.
PIPER: What are you doing with Tyler's legal file?
Cassius looks concerned.
CASSIUS: I'm sorry, I just wanted to know a little bit more about Tyler's case. After the wedding, seeing Fay, I haven't been able to stop thinking about how hard it must be for her to have a son who's in prison. Knowing how long he could be away for.
PIPER: That still doesn't justify stealing from my job.
CASSIUS: Well Sheila mentioned that Tyler was originally charged with manslaughter and that the murder charge came later. I guess I wanted to know more. To see if I could help.
PIPER: (looking bewildered) Help?
CASSIUS: I know it's a long shot.
PIPER: Cassius, if Toadie could have done something by now, believe me, he would've. And I'm more worried about the fact that you did this behind my back.
CASSIUS: I really am sorry.
PIPER: I never thought that you'd be so sneaky. I mean, do I have to be worried about something else that you've done?
CASSIUS: Piper, please! It was one mistake. But it was for a good reason.
Piper looks emotional.
Dipi rushes into The Waterhole to find Clive. They stand just before the corridor to the toilets and Dipi says she doesn't want Shane to see her. She tells Clive that Sheila's been held up by Karl's long-lost sister, before they rush down the corridor. Shane appears behind the bar, having just witnessed Clive and Dipi rushing off together. Sheila walks in with her milk order to find Shane not quite with it, obviously concerned about what Clive and Dipi are upto. Sheila gets frustrated with Shane whose mind is elsewhere, before he heads off to the cool room with the milk order.
Bea tells Yashvi in the car park that she feels bad for calling Piper about Cassius. Piper and Cassius walk past, prompting Yashvi to remark that Piper obviously isn't that bothered. When the girls catch Piper's eye, she heads over and tells them that her and Cassius have sorted things out. He admits that he did take something from the office; Tyler's legal file. He elaborates that he only did it to see if there was a way he could reduce his sentence. Bea looks unimpressed.
Piper and Cassius head off to give Toadie the file back, while Bea admits to Yashvi that she still finds his behaviour suspicious.
SHEILA: (to Shane) How is it that you can turn wee into water, but you still can't handle a spray and wipe?
Clive emerges from the bathroom area before Sheila remarks that she was about to send out a search party. Dipi soon emerges as well, lying that she came to check out the hand sanitiser as she'd heard it was good. Clive and Sheila depart.
Shane asks Dipi what is going on, soon making it clear that he thinks something is going on between her and Clive. Dipi looks shocked, but admits that she does have something to tell him and they go to discuss it in private.
Toadie rips into Cassius for stealing confidential information and Piper for leaving Cassius unattended in the office. She is apologetic but Cassius tries to take the blame. Toadie makes it clear that nothing like that can happen again. He then tells Cassius that going over old ground won't help anyone; the only thing that would help is if a new suspect emerged. Cassius looks guilt-ridden.
Bea exits Harold's as Ned walks by. He asks her how things went with Piper and she invites him for another late-night walk. He yawns and she tells him not to worry about it, but he says he wants to hear what happened with Cassius and the file. She says she'll tell him later or to ask Piper about it before he goes to sleep. She encourages him to go for a surf or to do something to unwind as he seems so tired. He heads off to use the Lassiter's sauna. Bea smiles as he walks away.
Xanthe talks about the progress she made at the library while Clive and Sheila couldn't be any less subtle about the fact they've just had an afternoon of passion. Clive heads to the bar to make their food order.
Shane inappropriately asks Clive whether he'd like to order oysters as they're an aphrodisiac and 'get the blood pumping'. Clive declines and hands his card over to pay by contactless.
SHANE: Technology hey, isn't it amazing, moves so quickly, I remember the days of floppy discs...Stiff drink?
CLIVE: (annoyed) Softie.
Clive looks embarrassed.
Yashvi is still moaning about her 'lucky towel' that she never found and how terrible the team played that day without it. She describes the towel as blue and frayed at the edges which reminds Dipi that it got mixed up with the tea towels they use at the café. She tells Yashvi that she gave it to Ned after he spilled coffee all over himself earlier. Yashvi sulks when Dipi says she can go and find the towel after their family dinner.
Ned enters the sauna, seemingly stressed, with thoughts about recent events running through his head. He turns the heat up really high.
Cassius apologises about what happened. Piper jokes that breaking the law isn't really Cassius' forte. She then reassures him that if Tyler ever did get released, he wouldn't be competition.
PIPER: Tyler's in my past. I want to be with you.
Piper heads off to heat up a ready meal.
Bea enters with dessert. Elly looks pleased and says that Karl, Susan and Jemima are out the back drinking wine. She warns that Karl has his guitar so Bea might want to bring forward her walk with Ned. Bea says that she's not going for a walk tonight. Elly probes Bea about Ned but she says there's nothing to say. She then asks Elly about following gut instincts and trust to which Elly responds that she just has to give it time to start trusting people again.
Ned falls asleep.
