- Yashvi finding something of interest in Ollie's bag after a stop and search.
- Sheila pleading with Levi to move home.
- Bea trying to talk sense into Levi about his Gran.
- Susan stressed about her first day back at work.

Erinsborough High School
Susan eventually opens the door to her office to let Karl in. She tells him that she "can't do this," that it is "too much" and she "is done." Indeed she is almost relishing the visit by The Department to make her tenure come to an end!
KARL: Susan, this isn't you, you've dealt with worse before.
She agrees to go back out into the corridor to clean up and see what they can salvage.
Meanwhile out in the corridor, Jane has already begun the clearing up and tries to rope Mackenzie in too, but she physically can't, so heads off instead to grab Richie.
Shane is sharp with Roxy when she arrives for her shift... 2 minutes late! His bad mood isn't helped either with a text from Dipi asking him to do a supermarket run as they're having guests for dinner, which is the last thing he wants to do!
Roxy heads over to where Sheila has been cleaning the same glass for ages (so Shane said) and asks if she is hoping a genie with 3 wishes occurs if she keeps cleaning it! "I only need one," Sheila replies back - for Levi to move home. Roxy volunteers to come up with a plan to get him to move home and initially Sheila's reply is "I don't think I'm that desperate," but following the look Roxy gives her, she quickly changes to "maybe I am." She isn't sure why Roxy is volunteering her help and about the best explanation Roxy can come up with is that they are "friendly enough these days to handle it" before adding that she also feels sorry for her too.
Erinsborough High School
Jane has manged to get the place looking decent as Karl comes out of Susan's office. Naturally, she is curious to know why Susan reacted as such and Karl replies "it's what happened with Finn."
KARL: The Susan of old would have backed her judgement, but now she just doesn't trust herself enough.
Karl sincerely thanks her for her work and given she is staying in town, Jane volunteers to help in any way she can.
As Levi and Yashvi are making their way back to the station, they run into Dax who has just left. He has an update for them - the gaffa tape in Ollie's bag matched the one used to tape the drugs found in the school bin. "Your instinct was good," Dax praises Yashvi with and wants her to bring Ollie in for questioning - he isn't being arrested just yet.
The Waterhole (veranda)
Roxy's first suggestion is for Sheila to write a letter saying sorry and admitting she is "a despicable excuse for a grandmother!"
SHEILA: You really enjoyed saying that did you?!
ROXY: More than you know!
Sheila is sure the letter would be burnt without it being opened plus feels "it needs to be more public in some way" but rules out the next suggestion - singing!
Kyle arrives and despite being somewhat surprised at the pair of them joining forces, is invited to help come up with an idea to get through to Levi. His suggestion is "a big bunch of balloons"... which would be suitable "if Levi was five," Sheila points out to him. It looks like Roxy has another idea but rushes off to contact Ned first.
Erinsborough High School
As requested, Richie has done a good job with the tidying up and takes a socially distant breather on the bench beside Mackenzie, who is hanging around to give Susan some moral support.
The pair spot Ollie coming out of the classroom and are swithering if he was responsible or not when he comes over to put something in his locker. He isn't amused at the look the pair gave him and before being asked, denies he was the one responsible.
Ollie is just heading off when Yashvi spots him and invites him down to the station for a chat. "I'm not going anywhere," he protests and adds that Yashvi can't make him... but she can and warns him that she can turn it into "a bigger scene than it needs to" if he doesn't go along quietly. He pleads for Susan to step in but as he is over 18, she can't do anything, so very reluctantly he quietly goes off with Yashvi.
Yashvi is leading the questioning of Ollie, with Levi standing quietly to the side. He denies knowing anything about the gaffa tape, and explains his bag not being in the locker was due to having PE. Ollie also denies knowing anything about the little bags either when Yashvi shows him the evidence however, he trips himself up when he declares he isn't "a speed dealer."
YASHVI: I didn't say the drug was speed. That information hasn't been released to the public yet.
Quickly Ollie claims everyone is talking about it at school and that's how its "got out." Levi interrupts to ask for a word with Yashvi.
The duo rush out of the station to let Dax know what Ollie said during the interview. He doesn't seem too interested but with Levi pointing out the other evidence they have, they get the go-ahead to charge Ollie.
DAX: Rebecchi, nice work.
Dipi is updating Jane about what Kirsha is up to (gone on a science camp) before turning to Nicolette. Jane confirms she's not spoken to her but isn't going to give up.
Yashvi pops into the café and tells her mum about arresting Ollie and admits it was weird arresting someone she went to school with. Jane is sure Susan will be relieved when she finds out and tells Yashvi not to take it too personally Susan's behaviour when she went to the school to get Ollie. A lightbulb suddenly goes off in Jane's head and she asks Yashvi if she can come with her to the school, "on official police business," which she agrees to do as long as her sergeant gives the okay.
Mackenzie is relaying news of Ollie's arrest to Richie before ending up in Shane's bad books for using up the cream (he was wanting to use it in a dish for dinner). Angrily, he storms out of the house to get some more.
Erinsborough High School
We now find out what Jane's idea was - Yashvi setting up for a drug information session. Susan doesn't look too impressed though, despite Jane pointing out she'd the original idea for it that morning. To help sell it to Susan, Jane points out that it should get her brownie points with The Department that they can "endorse a strong school police relationship" plus with Yashvi being an ex-student, they "might listen to her."
JANE: She is one of your success stories. I think its worth reminding the powers that be of that.
Now on board, Susan thanks Jane for her "great idea" just as Lana (from The Department) arrives in the school. Lana seems confused as to why Jane is at the school, so she is quick to get in that she is just there for "a trip down memory lane" and to "see how well Susan's looking after the place." She is pleased to hear about Yashvi's session after Susan explains it to her and with Jane in tow too, the trio head off for a tour of the school.
The Waterhole (veranda)
We find out what Roxy's idea (that involved Ned) was - Sheila is going to get LEVI (in huge capital letters) tattooed on her right forearm! She seems very up for up, unlike Bea who is trying to talk Sheila out of it.
BEA: Are you sure because a tattoo is for life.
SHEILA: And so is my grandson. This will show Levi how much I care about him.
Of course Levi walks in on them talking about it and isn't at all impressed at what Sheila is going to do!
LEVI: This has got to be the dumbest idea any Canning's ever had... and that's saying something! If you think this makes up for what you did, you are beyond help.
He isn't amused either at Bea telling him to "ease up" and is more than happy to resume his normal stance with Sheila - barely talking to each other! She doesn't want to go back to them not talking, but he bluntly replies, "it's not up to you anymore," before walking away.
Bea rushes after Levi as he heads into the complex to check that he is okay. "Never been better," he sarcastically replies before she tries to explain why Sheila is getting the tattoo - to get his attention and adds that folk only get named tattoos done when they "mean the most to them in life."
LEVI: Tell that to guys with ex-girlfriends stamped on their chests.
BEA: You know what I mean, and you know why she's doing this.
LEVI: Yes, to make her feel less guilty.
The conversation is curtailed when Yashvi comes out of the station and Bea congratulates her on her arrest. We hear that Ollie's parents have shunned him and so he risks being sent to an adult remand centre. Levi isn't bothered given Ollie "brought it on himself," and Yashvi admits she is glad her parents stood by when she messed things up. "Guess you're one of the lucky ones," he says to her before she heads off for a coffee before tacking the paperwork waiting for her.
Before Levi walks into the station, Bea asks "what kind of parent doesn't care if their kid goes to jail?" "The system's full of them," Levi replies back, which is Bea's chance to try and get him to see what Sheila did (for Kyle) in a different light.
LEVI: Don't even try to compare this with my situation.
BEA: How is it different?
LEVI: It's completely different.
BEA: If Sheila didn't do what she did, Kyle might have gone to jail. She changed the course of his life. Too bad Ollie doesn't have someone like her in his family.
It's a much happier mood in the socially distant #28, with Susan getting the thumbs up from The Department thanks to Jane and her secret weapon (Yashvi).
SUSAN: Honestly, I can't thank you enough.
JANE: Susan, you are Principal of Erinsborough High for a good reason.
"You know what you're doing," Jane adds, and Susan is grateful for the reassurance she provided. Jane confesses that she did enjoy it as it "got the old adrenaline pumping!" Susan invites Jane to re-join the school as there is always plenty of relief work and also so that she can "help support me too." "I'd love to," Jane immediately replies before thanking Susan for the opportunity.
Sitting in the backyard in the dark, Kyle thanks Roxy for hanging out with Sheila today, even if the tattoo idea eventually didn't come to fruition.
Sheila is just about to head inside with the dry clothes when Levi appears - she thinks he is round with his dirty washing but he's moving home albeit with them not back to the relationship they had pre-falling out. He is pleased to hear though that she isn't getting the tattoo.
Over drinks, Yashvi, Ned and Bea sit chatting about Sheila's non-tattoo. Ned is more than happy to hear that she isn't getting tattooed! Bea is refusing to say what Levi's beef is with Sheila though, when Yashvi asks and denies that there is anything between them either, they're simply friends. "I don't have the feels," Bea protests as Yashi and Ned head off home for dinner.
Mackenzie is surprised to see Richie sitting in the café with Ollie as he was supposed to have gone home to change before heading back to #30 for dinner. That is where we hear it was Richie's dad who bailed Ollie out. She asks why Ollie's parents didn't bail him out and he describes them "as losers" to her. Before he leaves, Ollie sincerely thanks Richie especially as he's "been a jerk" to him lately and [Richie] doesn't owe him anything.
Alone, Mackenzie now questions whether Richie believes that Ollie is a dealer or not. "Ollie called me," he explains and "explained his side of the story."
MACKENZIE: He would say anything to get himself off.
RICHIE: He wasn't lying Mac, he's innocent.
Yashvi asks her dad if they are eating inside or out (out) before asking where Mackenzie is. "I don't know," Shane replies and while Ned takes the plates outside, Yashvi talks to her dad about Ollie. As the chat about Ollie progressed, Shane's happy demeanour suddenly vanished, and he puts it down to the realisation she is now "dealing with crims every day."
After Yashvi leaves to take the cutlery outside, we now find out why Shane's demeanour changed - in his pocket is one of the same type of bags that Ollie was charged with. He walks through to the living room and buries the bag in the bottom of a rucksack.
