David is first to realise something has happened and is straight into doctor mode warning Levi to keep still - he does say to David that his shoulder hurts. Paul is irate at Roxy and demands to know if she checked the stage could hold that amount of weight. "I don't know," she replies to Paul before then heading over to see how Levi is.
Sheila 2 has tasked Sheila with finding a new manager for The Hive, but she isn't impressed at the quality of the applicants as she goes through them. It isn't long before the conversation turns to Levi and how he is coping (or not!) post-Bea and Kyle tells her about Levi "working out like a demon" to try and forget about Bea.
Yashvi is nervous ahead of her date with Ned at Harold's - it's the first one since their wobble and so wants everything to go right including making sure she is wearing suitable earrings! Toadie remarks on the effort she is putting in and her response is that "somethings got to be different this time" to stop the continual breaking up then getting back together that seems to be happening. He also picks up that she appears not to have gotten over the recent Sheila 2 stuff and she admits she is trying to, because Ned has, but "it hurts knowing that he was into her" and thinks "somethings going to change so I know it doesn't happen again."
TOADIE: If you both want this to work, it's going to be fine.

Despite his protestations, David is making Levi go to the hospital to be checked out. "It's not that bad," Levi tries to plead to his Gran when she and Kyle arrive after being called to alert them. David reassures them that he doesn't think there are any serious injuries and explains how the injury arrived. When Kyle sees what is on the stage, he isn't too amused and gives Roxy the evil eye!
As they sit on their date outside Harold's, there is still a bit of unease between Yashvi and Ned. Ned mentions that he is going to start looking for a new job later, one that will mean he's got enough time so that they can do the things Yashvi likes - going to the footy, checking out bars... or watching Faceoff for the millionth time! While she likes those plans, she isn't too enthusiastic about his suggestion of planning in a regular date night, as she'd prefer they were more spontaneous.

Paul and Terese are demanding answers from Amy over why the accident happened. Amy is very quick to put the blame on Roxy, but in turn, the bosses want to know why she delegated things to Roxy and didn't check what she'd done.
AMY: It's not brain surgery! I gave her a job that I thought she could handle.
Paul isn't impressed at Amy trying to "pass the buck" although when she calls it "delegating" it results in her getting a lecture from Terese.
TERESE: Delegating is one thing. Good managers oversee entire operations and spot potential incidents before they happen.
PAUL: A lesson that I thought you might have learnt from your experience in Cairns.
Amy defends the fire as "a complicated situation" which doesn't go down well at all with Paul and he reminds her that she was hired "to handle complicated situations" and wonders if they should revisit that!
Ned is on the phone to someone regarding a job but it doesn't go too well for him.
Number 26 (garden)
Kyle passes on the news to Roxy that he's heard from the hospital and Levi will be okay - no broken bones, just bruising. "That's really lucky," a relieved Roxy replies and pre-empts Kyle's rant by getting in that she didn't know Amy was going to put the gym gear on the stage. He questions if she'd have said anything and her silence says it all, so he brings up that in her quest "to make Amy look back," Levi got hurt.
ROXY: I will stop messing with Amy.
KYLE: So you'll do as she says at work?
ROXY: Of course. I'll take whatever order. I'll do whatever she tells me to do.
KYLE: Without complaining?
ROXY: Not to her face! I'll try my best, I promise.
As they put out the bins, Toadie asks his niece about her date. "It was okay," she nonchalantly replies and given how she said it, he questions if Yashvi went on a date! She explains to him that "something was off" and that Ned wants them to have regular dates. He thinks that is a good idea given they're "both busy people" and are trying to get back on track with one another. Yashvi is now coming round to Ned's idea and when she spots Ned outside his house, breaks off with her uncle to go speak to him.
After asking how the job hunt is going ("it's going!"), Yashvi then surprised Ned by suggesting that they move in together! From his shocked expression, this was the last thing he was expecting, so she explains that if they are living together, then they can spend their downtime together.
Ned is onboard and they set the plan in motion for how to proceed with Yashvi going to check out the list on his laptop that he previously had.
YASHVI: This is exciting. We're moving in together!

Amy accepts Roxy's apology "for dropping the ball" and Roxy will understand if Amy wants to fire her. "Just shut up okay," is Amy's reply because she's spotted Paul and Terese coming.
When they arrive, Roxy is stunned to hear Amy say, "I take full responsibility for the stage collapse," and that she should have been there when it was being built and as manager, "the buck stops with me." While thankful that Amy has owned up to her mistake, he has no alternative but to give her "an official warning."
PAUL: Amy, I don't give second chances. Please don't make me regret this.
"I won't," she replies in acknowledgement. She also plans on apologising to Levi and re-doing the roster so that there is less pressure on Roxy.
AMY: Thank you for being so good about it.
"I just realised this looks like a bribe to not sue Lassiters," Amy admits as she arrives armed with a get well pressie for Levi. "Is that a possibility?" Sheila asks but gets no answer as Kyle drags her through to the kitchen for a cuppa! While grateful at the goodies (muffins, chocolate and gin), because of his Keto diet, Levi can't actually consume anything.
AMY: I should have done my research.
Levi then admits that the accident was partially his fault too for not using a spotter as well as stressing out his body, and so apologises for messing up the promotion. The pair agree they've both "messed up" to various degrees, and with Levi still determined to enter the competition (despite Sheila's misgivings) Amy agrees to be his spotter and hydration source so that he can still participate.
The Flamingo Bar
When she arrives back at the bar after visit to Levi, Roxy thanks Amy for not throwing her under the bus to Paul and Terese.
AMY: We really need to figure out a way to work together... or at least tolerate each other.
ROXY: Sounds good.
Roxy mis-interprets Amy coming back with the goodies as Levi not accepting her apology, so Amy sets her right that he did and when Levi is back on his feet, she plans to take him out to a suitable Keto restaurant.
Amy heads over to see Ned and hears he is looking for a new job and offers him a job at the bar - a lot the casual staff moved on after her "slash and burn" and thus has room in the budget for him. Ned accepts the offer and they seal the deal over a gin and tonic.
Levi is getting a joint lecture from both Sheila and Kyle for overdoing things to take his mind off Bea leaving. "I've been stupid," he admits but then asks who doesn't do something daft when they've been dumped... something Kyle should be more than familiar with! Kyle tries to turn it into "we're not judging you" but to a "we're worried" conversation. Levi admits he is fed up hearing about how well Bea is going on her trip "as if I didn't matter." Sheila tries to reassure him that isn't the case, and he was "too good for her" and "too decent" hence why he is now bottling things up. "You guys are right," Levi concedes and agrees to give the competition a miss and rest up instead even if it might take a while yet to sort himself out.
KYLE: That's alright, Kyle's happy to be your punching bag for a bit longer!
Yashvi comes calling for Ned since he's not answering his phone. He isn't home either although Terese tells the lass to sit and wait for him while she and Paul head out for dinner. After Yashvi asks where the rental properly list is, Terese is thrilled to hear that the pair are going to move in together although its Paul who is the one that is throwing the doubts in before he (and Terese) depart.
In the kitchen, Yashvi finds some properties Ned has printed off... but she also finds his sketch book and of course comes across the sketch of Sheila 2! Yashvi not happy!!!
The Flamingo Bar
While Ned has been filling in the paperwork for his new job, it appears that the pair have had too many gin and tonics given how loose their lips are! Ned mentions how things aren't great between Yashvi and himself, which takes Amy by shock as she thought they were "the dream team." He is not having doubts about them moving in together, more his head "is all over the place." Amy reassures him that they are "a great couple" and are "made for each other."
At the bar, Roxy moans to Kyle about how friendly Amy is with everyone and he reminds her of the promise she made earlier! "I'm not going to do anything to her," she pleads!
ROXY: But since I'm not actively plotting against her, doesn't mean I have to like her.
Ned seems happy to see Yashvi waiting for him when he enters the house and tells her about his new job. "Good for you," she replies in a very monotone voice. "Good for us," he counters with as it will help them "get a place" and it's "a fresh start" too.
YASHVI: You don't want a fresh start... not with my anyway.
NED: What are you talking about?
YASHVI: You say you want to move forward with me.
NED: Yes, I do. Of course I do.
YASHVI: You said you were going to get over her.
NED: There is no her.
"We're going to move in together," Ned reminds Yashvi with and wants them to start looking at rental places now. Yashvi is ready for him though - and gets his sketch book out and while showing him the sketch she discovered.
YASHVI: So what am I meant to think when I find this?
