Terese is going over EA duties with Harlow and hands her a master key for the hotel. She's pleased to see Harlow smiling again too, "and all it took was a promotion and a cute boy!" Jesse walks in and congratulates Harlow on the new job. Harlow asks if Jesse wants to hang out before his shift starts, which Terese thinks is wonderful. Jesse says he'll be back in fifteen minutes, he just wants to get Harlow a "congrats, surprise thingy" first.
Yashvi takes Levi out of the station to have a quiet word about Mitch and Nelson. She's been keeping an eye on things, but there have been no new developments. She heads back into the cop shop, just as Kyle sneaks up and scares Levi. He's worried that Levi is still trying to trail his attackers, but Levi says he's let it go. He promises Kyle he's strictly on admin duty so he doesn't need his cousin babysitting him. Kyle promises he'll back off but doesn't appear too genuine about it.
The Flamingo Bar
Roxy is filming more footage for her ad, this time of Amy relaxing on a lounge outside while Ned, sans shirt, fans her with a cowboy hat. Much to Amy's pleasure/discomfort, Roxy encourages Ned to harness his "sexy power", which gets Amy flustered. Toadie walks over with Hugo and jokes that whatever they're filming doesn't look entirely family friendly. Needing an excuse to get away from Ned's chest, Amy pretends Toadie's being serious and encourages Ned to put his shirt back on before they insult any more guests.
Paul's happy to hear from Terese that Harlow and Jesse are hanging out again. But Terese can't help but worry Harlow's being too positive about everything; it's like Brent never existed. Paul's not concerned, though, he figures Harlow's already gone through her mourning period when Brent left town. He then asks if Terese knows where Harlow and Jesse are going this afternoon, but Terese tells him to keep his nose out of it. "You've set her on the path to be happier, I'm sure she can do the rest," she cautions. Paul reluctantly agrees.
Jesse returns with a "congrats, surprise thingy" consisting of a picnic basket and blanket and shows Harlow the bottle of champagne he swiped from the Flamingo Bar. Harlow points out that he forgot glasses, but Jesse jokes that they might get to the lake and find out Paul's supplied another spread for them. Harlow tells him that Paul (and Terese) might actually be leaving her alone now that she's told them she broke up with Brent - it's bliss not to have them smothering her so much. Jesse gets a text from Curtis, asking if he wants to hang out that night, but Jesse ignores it.
Sheila gives Levi his takeaway coffee just as Kyle sneaks up on Levi again. He badgers Levi about not being at his desk like he said he would, but Levi says he's just about to go out on a call for a noise complaint. Kyle acts overprotective and says he'll tag along with Levi, making Sheila wonder why Kyle's acting so strange. With an eye roll, Levi ignores Kyle and heads back to work. Sheila tells Kyle to stop harassing his cousin, but Kyle says he just wants Levi to be safe.
The Flamingo Bar
Roxy and Amy are inside while Roxy looks at the raw footage on her laptop. She comments on how hot Ned looks on screen, acknowledging that it's a bit weird to say that about her cousin, but Amy's too distracted by Ned's bare chest to care. Even more so when Ned suddenly appears before her, still very shirtless, and wearing the cowboy hat. He pretends he couldn't find his clothes so Amy says she'll help him find them, rushing out of the bar and away from temptation. Ned smirks: his plan to rile Amy up is working a treat.
Harlow and Jesse have set their picnic up on the grass and are talking about Harlow's new job. Jesse thinks she's part of the inner circle now, but Harlow reminds him that circle is just made up of her relatives. Jesse points out that she could still hear a lot of goss, especially if she gets a chance to work with Paul too. He gets a quick succession of messages from Curtis and tries not to read them, but Harlow says he can answer if he wants. "It's just this one guy I'm seeing at the moment," Jesse admits, which makes Harlow smile. She doesn't want to get in the way of Jesse's actual social life, she just needs him to be interested enough to convince her granddad and Terese. Jesse says if it were a real date he wouldn't be on his phone, but Harlow's just grateful he's playing along with their fake dating idea to keep Paul off her back. "I don't mind, it's kind of fun," Jesse grins, "I've never been in a fake relationship before." Neither has Harlow and she labels Jesse (a literal) lifesaver.
Kyle is still acting like Levi's stalker, jumping him as soon as he exits the station. Kyle informs him that he knows Levi's been near the warehouse where Mitch and Nelson work because he saw Levi's patrol car there when he went down on a hunch to check. Levi says it wasn't him, but it could have been Yashvi using the car. Sheila walks out of the bar just in time to see her grandsons arguing again and demands to know what's going on. But they don't divulge anything and leave her more confused than ever.
Toadie thanks Yashvi for looking after Hugo and heads off to work, finding Kyle and Levi out the front. The boys want to know why Yashvi was doing surveillance on Mitch and Nelson, but Yashvi says she felt bad not having any updates for Levi this morning so she didn't think there'd be any harm in a little stakeout. Vi says she was only there for an hour, though, and didn't see anything. Kyle becomes very concerned when he notices that Hugo's playing with a toy train that looks exactly like the one left on their doorstep the other day.
Jesse and Harlow take a stroll along the bridge. Harlow says she finally spoke with Brent this morning after his phone privileges were returned. She told him all about their fake dating plan and Brent's completely on board with it if it gets Paul and Terese off her back about breaking up with him. Jesse's relived to hear it, "I do not need a soldier boy with a rifle turning up on my doorstep in the middle of the night." They return to their picnic spot and Jesse can't help but wonder if Harlow's truly going to be okay continuing with her long distance relationship.
HARLOW: Honestly, I was really close to calling it. But now Brent has his phone back and I can hear his voice every day it just feels like we're a lot closer now. And I'm not stupid, I know that this lie won't last forever. So as soon as he comes back we're probably going to have to come clean.
JESSE: We'll worry about that when it happens.
HARLOW: You can back out whenever you want, by the way. I'm just really grateful that you're doing this for me.
JESSE: I like hanging out with you. This can go on for as long as you need.
She thanks him and they get stuck into the champagne.
The Flamingo Bar
Roxy sidles up to Ned at the bar and wants to know why she found his clothes shoved into her bag. Ned admits that he's doing it to wind Amy up and that she clearly enjoys "a bit of yee-haw!" They laugh and Roxy says that Ned likes showing off a bit too much, but Ned says it's simply just payback for Amy making him do all the worst jobs last week. "Keep telling yourself that," Roxy smirks. Paul and Amy walk in talking business, but Amy is still very distracted by shirtless Ned, much to Paul's annoyance. So Amy promises she's going to sort her problem out ASAP.
Yashvi speaks to Hugo then confirms with Kyle and Levi that the train was found on the front doorstep. Kyle says that Mitch and Nelson probably followed Yashvi back from the warehouse, saw she lived on the same street as Levi, and put two and two together. Yashvi figures this could be a good thing as it proves the less-than-dynamic duo are probably up to no good, otherwise why would they try and warn her off too. But Levi doesn't want her to pursue anything further or tell Rodwell. "You were right before, I need to leave them alone," he says. "Honestly, I should have done that a week ago." Levi doesn't want to put their families in any more danger.
That night, Sheila unpacks one of her shopping bags and leaves a carton of eggs on the counter. She realises she's forgotten her other bag by the front door and goes to retrieve it, just as Roxy walks in. She says she got Sheila's text about Kyle and Levi. Sheila's worried by how much they're arguing with one another and she has no idea why. Roxy's got no clue what's wrong either, but she's sure it'll all blow over by tomorrow. Sheila's confused when her eggs aren't on the bench anymore, but Roxy finds them sitting on one of the counter stools.
ROXY: Are you having a little seniors moment?
SHEILA: Please don't use the 's' word around me. (Looking a little uneasy) Are you staying for dinner?
ROXY: I'd love to but Harlow's got a new boyfriend and I'm keen to hear the goss.
SHEILA: Who is it?
ROXY: I was surprised too. He's cute but-
Roxy leaves and Sheila still looks scrambled about the eggs.
Harlow is surprised when Paul and Terese don't fire twenty questions at her about her date with Jesse, but Paul says she looks happy and that's good enough for him. Harlow says she is, and thanks them again for making her realise that a long-distance relationship isn't what she wanted. Paul and Terese look far too pleased with themselves. "We'll always have your best interests at heart," says Paul. Harlow gets a phone call from Brent but pretends it's Jesse. She heads upstairs to answer it and smirks to herself, happy she's fooling her family.
The Flamingo Bar
Jesse finally answers Curtis's phone call and says he's pretty busy this week but he'll try meet up with him again soon. When he gets to the bar, Amy questions him about a missing bottle of champagne, but Jesse says he hasn't seen it. She then asks if he knows any hot, single girls. Jesse suggests Roxy, but Amy says that won't work for the plan she's got in mind for Ned (plus she's not single). Jesse's interested to know what the Ned plan is, but Amy says it's none of his business.
Sheila hears a noise in the lounge room and thinks Kyle and Levi are home, but she becomes concerned when she finds the front door wide open and none of her family around. She shuts the door, but looks even more worried when she turns around. "Who's there?" she calls out, as the dramatic music amps up.
