No 26 - Kitchen: Janelle is confused to find Bree & Anne have left the house and assures Greg that Bree will be looking forward to meeting him. Greg explains he is only there to take Anne home and Janelle expresses how upset both Bree & Anne would be. Janelle warns him that taking Anne away will only cause trouble between them and as Allan arrives home they are introduced. Greg cannot believe how adjusted to the situation she & Allan are as he & his wife Brenda have not coped so well. Janelle puts it down to being the Timmins way. Allan goes to answer the door and Janelle compliments Greg on how strong a character Anne is as proof to how good a parent he & Brenda has been.

Anne defends her father, explaining how great her parents were before the truth came out. Janelle prepares them to come back into No.26 but Anne fears her father will make her return to Cairns. Janelle questions Rosie if Greg can force her but Rosie is unsure but promises to check what the law says. Janelle takes Anne’s arm to lead her back into the house but Bree hesitates. Bree asks if Greg asked about her but Janelle admits he hasn’t blaming Greg as being just overwhelmed. Bree decides she doesn’t want to see him. Janelle reminds her it is more difficult for Greg than her to deal with.

No 30 - Lounge: Frazer finishes a phone call with Toadie who comments to Ringo that he seems obsessed since the pool accident to ensure the house is in good repair. Rosie returns as Ringo jokes that they should try and take advantage by asking for a masseuse & spa. She explains she is going to try and help the Timmins with some research rather than go for a wedding dress fitting with her mother. Rosie tells Frazer she’ll see him at the wedding dress rehearsal in a couple of hours but before she can leave she is met by Pepper crying and Carmella trying to console her over Adam. Pepper feels uplifted by the girls support but then Carmella tries to use the opportunity to call off the rehearsal so she can avoid dancing with Oliver. Rosie is not falling for it and Pepper offers to dance with him if it helps. Carmella jokes she is best not dancing with Ringo unaware he has heard her. Ringo challenges her comments but Carmella puts her concerns down to Rachel’s feelings.

Harold reminds him that it isn’t even past 10am yet. Paul tries to brighten the mood with three tickets to see The Dingoes play footy but both men make excuses they can’t go. But as Paul prepares to leave, Harold has a change of heart insisting that Lou join them.

Charlie's - Bar: Bree arrives to spy on Greg who she finds reading at the bar. Bree spots Oliver & Frazer sitting over to the side and joins them not wanting them to acknowledge she is there.

No 26 - Lounge: Rosie explains to Janelle, Allan & Anne that Anne is old enough to make decisions legally who she wants to live with but fears it could get ugly if the Baxter’s want to fight against it. Anne is upset at the thought and Janelle promises her it won’t to that stage. Rosie has to leave to get to a restaurant to meet her mother for dance lessons.

Charlie's - Outside: Oliver returns with coffee for him & Frazer and qualms any concerns Frazer has about Bree & Greg inside. Oliver asks him not to compare Bree’s situation to his own but Frazer tells him that it will be something that will eat him up if he doesn’t discover the truth if his parents are his parents. Frazer is interrupted when he is bitten on the foot by a bug and reacts to it – Oliver recognises his friend has regained some feeling and Frazer admits he felt feeling in his toe the other day but has said nothing to Rosie as he fears it could be nothing. Oliver agrees to remain silent but it doesn’t stop him hugging his friend, much to Frazer’s embarrassment.

Charlie's - Bar: Greg admits he & Brenda have struggled to cope with the situation they are all in but never once stopped thinking about what type of person she was. Greg confesses his fear of losing Anne and the problems in his marriage drove him to move away to Cairns.

But her world comes crashing down when he tells her he doesn’t think so.

But when the guard refuses to let Paul stay, Harold becomes angry and it ends with all three of them being removed from the ground.
