Felicity is still trying to wrap her head around the news that Amy's dating Levi, when she discovers that Amy's seeing Ned too. Apologetic, Amy says Levi wanted to explain the situation to Felicity himself, but Felicity feels too overwhelmed and walks out. Ned asks Amy what just happened. "I stuffed up again!" Amy sighs in frustration.
Number 26 Backyard
Kyle finishes up a call with the hospital. He tells Roxy his biopsy results are in, but he has to book an appointment with an urologist because they don't give out results over the phone. Realising he may have a lot more hospital appointments in his future, Kyle thinks he might have to start going to Erinsborough Hospital instead of Frankston. If he runs into Karl, David or Clive they'll be bound by confidentiality, so he should be safe. Roxy still wants Kyle to tell Levi the truth, though, and there's an opening when Levi joins them in the backyard. Kyle asks Levi if they can have a chat, but they're interrupted when Levi gets a call from Felicity. Things turn south when Levi realises Felicity knows the truth about Amy, and he rushes off to try sort things out leaving Kyle in the lurch.
Mackenzie is surprised to find Hendrix waiting for her after her council meeting. They nervously chat about mundane things for a moment before Mackenzie realises they're being ridiculous. She takes Hendrix back into the meeting room for some privacy.
MACKENZIE: (matter-of-factly) We need to talk about sex. I don't know why this is so difficult for us. I mean, we both want this. Don't we?
HENDRIX: I mean, I do, but only if you do. I was waiting for you to make the first move because of what happened with you and Richie.
MACKENZIE: And I was waiting for you to make the first move because that's my fantasy. I want to be with you, Hendrix. I'm ready.
They grin at one another.
Number 26 Backyard
Kyle is worried that he was able to get an appointment so quickly with Doctor Alavi - he's expected at the hospital in an hour. But Roxy reassures him someone may have just cancelled, it doesn't mean he's about to get bad news. Toadie pops by and finds out about the appointment, then tells them that he's not going to Colac to celebrate Georgia's promotion. He wants to be home to support Kyle, "I can even join you and Roxy now if you like?" Sheila overhears the last part of the conversation and wants to know where they're going. The trio make up a story about needing to go to the supermarket, but a spanner is thrown in the works when Sheila wants to come. Toadie saves them by asking Sheila to find him more old bits and bobs for Nell to use as artwork, and Roxy says she'll get Sheila's shopping items while they're busy.
Levi is not very happy with Amy. He wanted to tell Felicity about their relationship on his own terms. Amy insists she didn't do it on purpose; Felicity was asking her questions about what Levi liked and Amy thought she already knew.
AMY: It was a mistake and I feel awful. But it's out in the open, right? That's a good thing?
LEVI: No it's not, Amy. She doesn't want to see me anymore. This whole thing is just too much for her.
AMY: I am so sorry.
LEVI: Okay, don't pretend this isn't what you wanted.
AMY: It's not what I wanted.
LEVI: You gatecrashed our first date. You destroyed my phone and hid a text from me, and now this. I'm not an idiot, Amy.
Amy admits she behaved appallingly and did feel a tad insecure over the thought of losing him, but it doesn't mean she tried to sabotage the whole thing. Levi doesn't believe her, though, and says actions speak louder than words. Amy gets upset when Levi says he can't trust her anymore.
The nerves are at an all time high while Kyle and Roxy wait to see the doctor. All Kyle can do is babble, while Roxy tries not to get overwhelmed. First Kyle says he thinks Roxy was right about them being lucky with the quick appointment. Then he talks about how the health care in Australia is top notch compared to somewhere like the US. Then about cancer fundraising, and how 'Movember' was invented in Australia. Roxy listens for a while, but can't help asking what's really on their minds.
ROXY: What are we going to do if the results are bad?
KYLE: You said not to overthink it.
ROXY: It didn't feel real then. And now I'm here and I can't help myself.
KYLE: (taking her hand) Rox, don't okay?
ROXY: You should be leaning on me, not the other way around.
KYLE: Maybe you should wait out here when I get called in? I'll be all right.
ROXY: Where you go, I go.
Doctor Alavi calls Kyle in for his appointment. Roxy holds Kyle's hand and they head in for the results.
Hendrix hopes Mackenzie knows she can talk to him about anything; they don't have to go to anyone else. But Mackenzie smiles and says that sometimes a girl just needs to talk things out with a girlfriend. Mackenzie also admits this is a big thing for her - she wasn't ready last time because of her insecurities.
MACKENZIE: I don't always feel comfortable in my skin.
HENDRIX: I wish you could see what I see.
MACKENZIE: My whole life I've been told that there's something wrong with me. I guess deep down I still believe it.
HENDRIX: You're beautiful.
MACKENZIE: (smiling bashfully) Well I've got a long way to go, but look where I am. I'm ready to be with you. You're the guy.
HENDRIX: (grinning back at her) I'm the guy?
They keep smiling at each other, a happy and comfortable vibe between them.
Ned has stopped by on his work break to deliver Amy some food to cheer her up. Amy says she spoke to Levi and everything is quite messed up, but she's fine. Ned sees through her 'fine' facade, though, and Amy can't help exclaiming that it's "devastating" that Levi doesn't trust her anymore. She then feels bad for dumping all this on Ned and changes the subject. Ned knows he said not to involve him in Levi's business, but he's willing to listen if she needs him. "You know he thinks that I deliberately sabotaged him?" Amy says, going right back into venting mode.
NED: It may not have been conscious, but too much happened for it to be an innocent mistake. I think you played a part.
AMY: No, you can not be on his side.
NED: Tell me I'm wrong.
AMY: Look, I messed up because I like him. And it was weird to be on the other side of things.
NED: I'm on the other side of things.
AMY: Yeah I know, and I get that.
Amy then decides she needs to fix everything ASAP - it's the only way Levi is going to trust her again. Ned doesn't look too thrilled that Levi is taking precedence with Amy once again.
Kyle is sitting in the waiting area, staring into space after his appointment. Roxy goes to get him some water, just as Toadie arrives. He tells Kyle that he left Sheila searching for garden gnomes at home. Roxy tries to keep her emotions together at the beverage station while the boys chat.
TOADIE: Is it okay to ask how it went?
KYLE: The cancer spread to my lymph nodes.
TOADIE: (shaken) You'll be doing chemo?
KYLE: (trying to remain stoic) Yeah, once I recover from the op. I think they booked me in for next week.
TOADIE: Still just the one?
TOADIE: Right, well, you're going to have to take it easy on yourself with the chemotherapy.
KYLE: (cracking a smile) Mate, I'm a Canning. Don't even reckon I'll feel the chemo. And I've already got the short hair, so bonus.
Roxy rejoins them and hands over the water. Kyle proudly tells Toadie that Roxy was "an absolute star" when the doctor was speaking to them, asking all the right questions.
ROXY: He said it's Stage 2.
TOADIE: Okay, well, Sonya was Stage 4. You can beat this, mate.
KYLE: Yeah the doctor said I had a solid chance.
Which is why Kyle doesn't think it's fair on Toadie to stick around when he could be catching up with Georgia and the rest of the family. Toadie doesn't want to desert Kyle, but Kyle insists that the best thing he could do to help right now is go to Colac.
Levi has filled Sheila in on the latest Felicity and Amy saga. Sheila believes that if Levi were able to explain everything to Felicity in his own words, it could make all the difference. Levi reminds her that Felicity made it clear they were over, but Sheila reckons that's exactly why Amy told her the truth. All Sheila can see in Levi right now is hurt, disappointment and worry. "You need to put yourself first, love," she insists, "and break up with Amy. Please!"
Amy has managed to convince Felicity to meet up with her. Felicity says she's not exactly comfortable with this, but she doesn't want Amy sliding into her DMs again. She also ended things with Levi, so there's no need for them to talk anymore. Persevering, Amy tells her that Levi is an exceptional guy and didn't deserve Amy blurting out the status of their polyamory like she did.
FELICITY: Whoever told me doesn't matter. It's not my scene. You guys might be into something else, and that's fine. But I don't want to share my partner.
AMY: Yeah, that's how I felt when he started seeing you.
FELICITY: Right, well then you should have told him that.
AMY: Should I have? Nah, we're not about that. We're different, and I just really want him to be happy.
FELICITY: Okay, but I don't know why you think you've done something wrong by him? Levi should have been upfront with me from day dot.
AMY: Well why don't you tell him that?
FELICITY: I already did! It's over. There's nothing else to say.
Roxy and Kyle are alarmed when Sheila noses around and sees that Roxy is looking up the cost of freezing embryos on her laptop. Roxy plays it off as her doing research for a workmate. Sheila doesn't understand why someone would get Roxy to do something so personal, but Roxy says she's great at asking all the right questions. When Sheila toddles away to deal with a work matter, Kyle asks why Roxy's looking at stuff like that while Sheila's around.
ROXY: We know more information now, it's probably a great time to tell her.
KYLE: The minute she finds out she's going to freak out. I don't think her heart can take another hit.
ROXY: She needs to know at some point, Kyle.
KYLE: I'm not ready, Rox. Not yet. So just give the online research a bit of a break out in public please.
Levi extends his bad mood with Amy onto Ned because he kept Felicity's text message a secret. But Ned tells him to get a grip - he knew if Felicity was keen she'd get in touch again, and she did. Levi says he should have been the one to explain everything to Felicity. It could have made a difference but now they'll never know. Ned then hands Levi his coffee and says it's on the house, "consider it a peace offering". They nod at one another, things tentatively okay again between them for now.
Kyle and Roxy sit outside Harold's, but Kyle gets exasperated when Roxy brings out the laptop again. Roxy says Sheila won't see them here, and she wanted to show Kyle some research on freezing his sperm. "Geez, Rox," Kyle cringes, "just straight into it, aren't ya?" Roxy says that the chemo is probably going to "fry up" everything, so they need to put his "little dudes" into the deep freeze. She was also thinking about looking into freezing embryos.
KYLE: Rox, I know we both want kids, but not right now.
ROXY: There's no harm in planning, right? I found some great places. They're expensive, but we're eligible for rebates.
KYLE: Why would you do that?
ROXY: Because we need to. We are going to be experts on fertility, chemo, cancer before you get rolled into that theatre.
Having heard enough, Kyle shuts Roxy's laptop and attempts to get through to her.
KYLE: Rox, we only just found out that it's spread.
KYLE: So it's too much to think about.
ROXY: That's what I'm here for. I'm going to do all the thinking. From now on I am practical Roxy!
KYLE: I don't want practical! Next week I'm getting a part of my body chopped off. So I don't want to think about cancer, I don't want to talk about cancer, and I don't want to read about cancer. Just for at least the next couple of days, please.
Seeing how distressed Kyle's getting, Roxy puts the laptop away and tries to comfort him.
Mackenzie and Hendrix are very pleased to learn they'll have the house to themselves for a few days when Toadie and the kids head to Colac. Toadie looks confused when Mac and Hendrix keep acting weird about how "amazing" his trip will be. And also when Hendrix asks if they could get the exact date and time he'll be coming back home. Toadie asks if they're planning on throwing a massive party while he's gone, then assures them he's only teasing when they look startled. He tells them both to enjoy the house while it's quiet for once. "We will," Mackenzie gleefully murmurs to Hendrix when Toadie leaves.
The Flamingo Bar Exterior
Ned sees Felicity sitting by herself outside and stops to say hello. "I know you," Felicity replies. "You're Amy's other boyfriend." She tells him if he's there to try and change her mind about Levi, he's wasting his time. But Ned just wanted to let Felicity know that Amy manages Flamingo Bar - she isn't working tonight, but for future reference in case she wanted to avoid her. Felicity thanks him and Ned almost goes on his way, but he can't help himself and has to discuss Levi.
NED: Can I ask you a question?
FELICITY: (exasperated) If it means you'll leave me alone.
NED: Do you like Levi?
FELICITY: We went on, like, two dates. And I'm a one guy kind of girl. And I like my guy to be a one girl kind of guy. Simple as that.
NED: I don't think that Levi's as into our arrangement as you think he is.
Felicity can't help but look intrigued and asks why Ned's telling her this.
NED: Levi's a mate. I want him to be happy. I also want Amy to be happy.
FELICITY: And you think she'd be happy with just you?
NED: If you give Levi another shot, there's a good chance we all get what we want. I guess I'm asking for your help.
Felicity appears as though she's considering Ned's plea.
