• Lucas and Elle find themselves trapped in Sascha's garage whilst snooping for evidence against Jason

Sascha's House - Garage: Lucas and Elle find themselves trapped in Jason’s garage after searching his property, until they notice an open window. Despite Elle's protests about her sprained ankle and her Armani jeans, Lucas hoists her up and pushes her through the small window.

Number 22: At No 22, Jason tries to reassure Ringo and Zeke that their recently purchased car will be fine after it broke down. Only when he refuses a refund does Ringo get suspicious, and Donna takes him aside to tell him the truth about Jason. Both try to stall him for time whilst the police arrive, but Jason manages to make a quick get away.

Sascha's House - Garage: Lucas is now stuck in the window, having managed to push Elle through. She hobbles around, looking for a key to open the padlock on the door, and then laughs that it reminds her of when Pooh bear got stuck in a honeypot. When she explains to Lucas that Pooh bear had to lose weight to get out, they both start laughing.

Charlie's Bar: Kelly introduces Toadie to her gay friend Shane at Charlie’s, but Toadie quickly realises that the misunderstanding over his sexuality, he had previously chosen to ignore, has gone to far. Rebecca is soon to correct Kelly, explaining that Toadie is not gay to her knowledge, leaving Kelly very embarrassed. She storms off, taking Shane with her, telling Toadie that she won't let everyone laugh at 'the queer plumber and his handbag'. Rebecca jokes that, if she'd known Toadie was gay, she'd have asked him to redecorate the office months ago.

Ramsay Street: On Ramsay Street, Ringo and Zeke are forced to part with their car, as it is needed as evidence. As Detective Skinner leaves, Steve explains to Susan and Karl what's happened, and the couple confront the boys. Meanwhile, Paul returns and asks Donna what's going on. She explains it all, then looks worried as he says that he hasn't seen Elle all day.

Sascha's House - Garage: As Elle continues in vain to try and pull Lucas through the window, they hear Jason returning. Elle panics and pushes Lucas inside. He crashes to the ground, knocking himself out, while Jason hears the noise and goes to check it out.

Sascha's House - Garage: Elle hides whilst Jason finds Lucas inside the garage, but is shortly knocked out by Elle with a crowbar. Lucas drags Jason's unconscious body out of the garage, but he suddenly grabs Elle's leg. Lucas saves her, and she hobbles off to find a phone and call the police.

Number 28: Susan and Karl berate Zeke for using his savings like that, and Ringo for encouraging him. They punish Zeke for ‘throwing away’ his father’s money, by taking away the rest of his savings to save him from temptation. Zeke is furious and storms off.

The General Store: Toadie meets with Kelly at the General Store to apologise for embarrassing her. She tells him never to do it again, and tells him that prawns are on the menu at Charlie's, and the two arrange a date. Bridget and Declan then come in, and find Steve who tells them that Nicola's being sent to a secure unit. Didge says that something good has come of all this; she wants to study medicine.

Erinsborough & District Hospital: Elle finishes identifying a photo of Jason Healey and giving evidence. She and Lucas then bicker about their ruined clothes, and she agrees to get him a new jacket, if he gets her some new Armani's.

Charlie's Bar: After a successful dinner Toadie misinterprets Kelly getting her bag for a kiss, and the date is quickly ended. Steph uncomfortably watches them as Kelly quickly leaves the bar.

Erinsborough & District Hospital: At the hospital, Lucas and Elle nearly kiss but are interrupted by Karl, who lets slip to Lucas that Dan and Libby are getting married.

Lassiter's complex: At Lassiter’s, Donna tries to convince Elle that her and Lucas will be the next ‘hot romance’, and makes her realise that Lucas won't reject her, and even if he does, she'll still have Donna.

Carpenter's Mechanics: Elle takes a bottle of champagne to Lucas at the garage. She notices photos of Libby on the bench, and leaves thinking the worst; but minutes later Lucas arrives to rip the photos in two.
