The Flamingo Bar (exterior)
On seeing what is about to happen, Ned quickly pulls himself back from Amy and before the awkward conversation can begin, they spot Roxy heading out with the bin. Once she passes by, the awkward chat begins. Amy gives Ned her blessing to report her to Terese but he doesn't want to do that, wanting instead for them to both forget about it. Amy looks very relieved at hearing that!
Kyle isn't amused at 'the abuse' he is coping from his family over his hamstring injury! After he limps out of the bar, Sheila suggests to Levi that they should do something as a family, but he has other plans.
The Waterhole (exterior)
Ned has told Kyle about 'the kiss' and he vehemently tells his friend that he "can't go there!" Ned knows that, even if Amy is his "seriously hot" boss!
KYLE: What is it with you and you self-destruct over older chicks?!
"I don't do that!" Ned protests, so Kyle reminds him of his past - Sheila 2 and Lauren! Ned thinks this is different because "Amy tried to crack onto me" plus thinks it would have been simply "fun" rather than a serious relationship. Getting serious, Kyle reminds Ned that he is trying to be mates with Yashvi, so hooking up with "her almost ex-stepmother" isn't a good idea! "You're right," Ned agrees and that from now on "Amy's off limits."
Melanie has given the house a feng shui makeover when Susan pops over. "Its fine," and "it's great" are the diplomatic answers Mackenzie and Yashvi say to Susan when she asks them about it and the endless things Amy has planned (latest one being a pottery class). The lassies cringe when they hear Melanie laugh in the sunroom (she's there with Toadie), so Susan suggests that they get some fresh air and thus the pair rush to get out of the house, only stopping to pick Nell up on the way out!
Number 26 (garden)
Kyle has found someone to give him lots of TLC - Roxy! However, when she offers to stay home and nurse him, he instead tells her to go back to work, on the pretence that Ned and Amy might get swamped, but really its to make sure the pair keep their hands off each other!
Levi is surprised to see the pair when he gets home, but after Roxy heads to work, Kyle comments on Levi seeming to be "acting weird" and jumps to the wrong conclusion that something has happened to him. Levi reassures his cousin that he is fine, he simply needs a shower and some peace and quiet.
Kyle heads inside and curiosity gets the better of him and he looks inside the bag Levi was carrying when they were chatting outside. Inside it he finds a surveillance type camera and photographs taken with it [of the surveillance type].
The Flamingo Bar
You can just about cut the UST between Amy and Ned with a knife when Yashvi comes into the bar to get drinks, but thankfully she doesn't pick up on anything.
Levi isn't very happy at seeing Kyle has the photographs in his hands after coming out from his bedroom. "What are you doing Levi?!" Kyle says, and knowing who is in the photographs, then asks why he is "stalking Mitch and Nelson?" Levi denies that he was doing a "stakeout," however that isn't washing with Kyle and he has a serious go at his cousin for potentially "getting yourself into real trouble."
KYLE: Why are you doing this?
Melanie is telling Toadie about her forthcoming interview when Amy barges into the house asking for advice... from Melanie and kicks Toadie out of his own house!
Amy explains she "tried to kiss Ned Willis today," and why that is an issue - he is an employee; her bosses nephew and she lives with his ex-girlfriend! Melanie doesn't envisage any issues with those... plus she can "totally recommend to anyone dating a younger man!"
MELANIE: They have so much more stamina and zest for life!
Melanie asks if Ned is interested and Amy is sure he is. Despite Amy wanting Melanie to "talk some sense into me," she is instead 'ordered' to "go and indulge yourself" and "listen to your heart" or perhaps "listen to your loins!"
As Nell happily plays hopscotch, Mackenzie and Yashvi are having a moaning session about the stuff Amy wants the household to do. Next they turn to moaning about how much Melanie is hanging around the house (and the changes she's done to the place) unawares that Toadie has arrived at the complex and of course can hear everything they are saying!
The Flamingo Bar
Amy is still all hot and flustered when she re-enters the bar and spots Ned. She suddenly remembers the BBQ needs returning and ignores Roxy suggesting she takes Ned in favour of doing it alone. "What is her problem?" Roxy asks and innocently, Ned replies back that perhaps she is tired given how busy the day has been? That isn't washing with Roxy and warns Ned that given they're buddies, if she spots Amy hassling him again, she will say something.
Toadie is a world of his own when Susan eventually gets his attention. She asks what is on his mind, so he tells her about overhearing Yashvi and Mackenzie's conversation about Melanie. Susan empathises with them, reminding Toadie that he jumped over a fence to escape from Melanie! She does though think it was more of them letting off steam rather than being cruel and adds that they're still trying to get to know both Amy and Melanie. When he starts thinking about it, Toadie can see why the pair said what they said but equally adds that "it's my furniture" and "it's my house."
SUSAN: It's their home... at least that's what you promised when Shane and Dipi left.
Levi explains to Kyle that the spying was him doing his "due diligence" to prove that Nelson and Mitch are still "the same low-life criminal scumbags" that bashed him when he was younger. He also thinks that the pair were casing some warehouse and thus plans to keep watching them. "You need to drop this," is Kyle's advice to his cousin but Levi is adamant they are up to something and promises to tell his bosses once he has "something incriminating."
Sheila comes over to take Kyle's order as she's already organised a keto salad for Levi. He isn't at all impressed at her treating him like a kid and orders the pair of them "leave me alone!" Kyle can't wait to say something to Levi when Sheila leaves:
KYLE: You want us to start treating you like an adult? Pull your head in and start acting like one!
Nell shows off her new party trick that Yashvi and Mackenzie have been teaching her to Toadie when he enters the house - imitating Melanie's laugh! The pair are embarrassed and quickly apologise.
NELL: Did I do a good job?
TOADIE: Um.... It was pretty darn accurate. More that I don't like the idea of anyone making fun of Melanie, I do have to admit it was pretty funny.
MACKENZIE: So you're not mad?
TOADIE: Look, a lot of things have changed around here lately and not entirely with your blessing, so if this is how you two need to let off steam, then go for it.
Cue now a competition between Nell, Mackenzie and Yashvi to see who can replicate most accurately the laugh! However, they are concentrating so much that nobody hears Melanie walk into the house!
MELANIE: Wow, it looks like I've walked in on my own fan club.
The Flamingo Bar
"I don't think the girls meant anything by it," Melanie hopes after having told Amy offscreen what she walked into at #30. She then goes onto say that it was Toadie who surprised her because he is one of the few people that knows "how self-conscious I get about my laugh" and thus thought he'd "have my back." We hear that Toadie did apologise but she's also left him "to stew about it" at home.
AMY: That will teach him!
MELANIE: Hopefully it will.
Amy then zones out of listening to Melanie because she is daydreaming about Ned seductively removing his shirt and pouring water all over himself! She's been so 'absorbed' in her daydream that she hasn't noticed both Yashvi and Mackenzie have arrived and are standing right next to her, until Melanie brings her back to the present!
The girls have arrived to invite Amy and Melanie out for drinks once Amy finishes her shift. The pair also apologise to Melanie for what she walked in and seen. "Sorry enough to pay for my next cocktail?" Melanie asks back as way of accepting their apology and the pair readily agree to paying... and for the next 4 of them too!
After hobbling into the house, Kyle tries to explain to Levi that he isn't getting on his back, by telling him "what to do," he simply doesn't want his cousin to "get hurt again." Levi at least checks that Sheila is okay and again, Kyle explains that she is simply worried about her grandson.
KYLE: We both are.
Levi replies that neither of them should be "worried about me anymore," because he plans on forgetting about Mitch and Nelson. Levi admits that he's been "having a real hard time lately" and wanted to replicate the "good" feeling he got of "a weight I didn't know I was carrying was gone" after Kyle tracked Packo down and he apologised for the bashing.
LEVI: You're right, even if I think of doing something dodgy, I don't have any evidence and its not worth risking my career.
KYLE: I'm glad to hear that.
Levi is about to head back to The Waterhole to apologise to Sheila, but when he opens the front door, there is something lying there that wasn't when Kyle arrived home - a steam train engine which has Levi really freaked out!
