ē Alan reveals to Oliver heís his grandfather and his parents arenít his real parents

Erinsborough Hospital - Waiting area: Elle tries to make sense of what Alan has said voicing out loud that this would mean either Alan had a son or daughter who was his parent. Oliver dismisses is as a rambling of a sick man as he cannot believe his parents would have lied to him over something so big like this. Elle isnít so sure, as every family has its secrets. Oliver calls it too big to be a secret and just ramblings. Elle agrees it could be that they should not take anything for granted.

No 30 - Swimming pool: A fault in the electrics to one of the pool lights causes a spark as Rosie climbs down the steps from the house to spend some time by the pool. She is distracted from going into the pool when Frazer calls to her that Toadie is on the phone with news about his case. Rosie returns upstairs. The sparks from the electrics continue to spark in the pool. Over the fence Susan & Karl call out to Tom and look over into No.30ís garden in case heís there but there is no sign.

Frazer greets his brother but is worried that his early return was due to problems but Ringo assures him it all went well and Prue has really opened up about talking about Paul. However their father is not happy about it and Frazer jokes that if their father has to say more than five words he starts to panic. The electrics in the house go dim for a few seconds and Rosie asks Toadie to sort it before she hangs up. Rosie confirms that Toadie has promised to get an electrician in and the news that it looks like the racetrack owners are ready to settle out of court over Frazerís accident. They celebrate but a knock at the door heraldís another surprise as Lucia arrives with Rosieís aunt Sophia & aunt Angelica arrive with champagne and food to spend time with Rosie to plan the wedding. Frazer looks almost scared.

Park: Mickey & Ned are playing Aussie rules and kicking the football to each other as Jake wanders over to where Paul is sitting eating a sandwich. Ned is about to explain to Mickey who he really is when Mickey spots Jake has taken part of Paulís sandwich into his mouth. Interrupted they run over to where Paul is but he finds it funny that heís lost his lunch to a dog. Paul introduces himself and warily Ned introduces himself back. Paul recognises the name and him used to being Elleís lodger. Ned goes to leave but Paul asks if his sense that they werenít friends is right. Ned confirms they did not like each other and Paul suggests he and his son stay so Paul can buy breakfast to try and start afresh but Ned declines as he wants to take Mickey to his first footy match and Mickey later wants to go for a swim. Mickey chirps up that Ned isnít his father, which is hard for Ned to hear. Mickey lies that his father could be a footy star, fireman or racing driver and Paul plays along with him.

Sophia is asked to sort out Ringo & Frazer while she and Angelica look at wedding dress fabricsÖ Overwhelmed Frazer speaks up that although Lucia has made it clear she doesnít want him to marry Rosie, he wants Rosie to be given more respect in her own home. Frazer offers champagne and Lucia grudgingly accepts.

The General Store: Oliver is unable to get tickets to the footy for Ned and asks who the child is with Ned. Paul mentions that until ten minutes ago he didnít even know who Ned was. Paul apologises to Ned for not getting the tickets and suggests he take Mickey to see local team The Dingoes. Mickey wants to go and asks Paul to join them. Ned agrees for him to go and as they leave Elle arrives. She goes over to Oliver and suggests he could resolve whether Alan is telling the truth by getting a DNA test but Oliver doesnít want to, as he is sure Alan is lying.
