Terese is pleased with her pitch and asks her to draw up a proposal in a few hours, Amy agrees. Terese agrees to consider it along with the other proposals.
Sheila thinks it would be better for Roxy to return home and sort things out than just run away to Darwin. Roxy isn't sure as things are so messy. Roxy worries about going back and Kyle loses the Tram and things don't work out. Kyle could blame her. Sheila doesn't know what could happen but doesn't think now is the time to throw the towel in.

KYLE: That Mira woman has the most poker face I've ever seen.
He is still not in the know why another inspection was needed. Mira didn't mention the Roxy incident. Levi thinks the council will overlook it and it might mean there's a future for the Tram. Kyle is more despondent and thinks it's the end for the business.

Dipi is being judgemental and is not so sure about about Amy upping and leaving her kids.
SHANE: It's not really any of your business is it?
Sheila arrives home and calls out to Kyle, she's brought Roxy home with her! Bea and Levi are pleased. Kyle comes out of his room and apologises for not going himself. Roxy is ok about this as the others give them space.
KYLE: I really let you down.
ROXY: No I let you down.
KYLE: This whole time you've just been trying to do the right thing.
Kyle was terrified this connection between him and Gary would be gone. He should have been focusing on her. She is more important than anyone else in his life. They tell each other they love each other. Kyle doesn't want to contemplate not having Roxy in his life as they hug.

AMY: It must be really tough for you to see that lovely caring wonderful man that you betrayed find happiness with somebody else. My family is off limits!
Dipi claims her innocence but Amy isn't fooled. She points out that Jay and Kirsha live in another state! Dipi reminds her that it is her children's choice and they have a great chance. If she could she would have Jay and Kirsha living with her at home.
AMY: At least none of my kids have accidentally shot their father.

Everyone is happy about this! The Council have come to the conclusion that this was a one off and won't happen again. Kyle has been asked to revise his protocols on Health and Safety and other bits. He has been given a $5000 fine as well. Levi thinks that's a lot of money. Kyle is just happy that he can open up the Tram and pay back the fine. The e-mail about what happened with Roxy helped to sort things out with Mira.
Dipi arrives to see Terese who is expecting her. Dipi tells her this is an important matter involving her family. Dipi asks if it's possible to choose a tenant other than Amy.

Terese doesn't want to get caught up in all this. As Dipi gets more upset as time goes on she doesn't think Shane is ready to commit to a relationship yet.
