Road: Lucas and Elle are sitting in Lucas' car, Elle having found Jill's address. They get out the car and make their way up to Jill's house. Lucas tries to point out to Elle that this might be a bad idea. He just finishes what he is saying when we hear Paul's voice on the phone to someone and he's nearby. Elle and Lucas are forced to hide behind one of the cars. Paul gets into his car and drives off, Elle and Lucas do the same.

Erinsborough News - Main area: Elle and Lucas call by looking for Paul but they find Susan instead who says she hasn't seen him all day. Elle tries to tell Lucas that she needs to find her father before he gets to Jill but Lucas thinks they should wait for Paul to return. Elle disagrees but the two aren't going to do anything right away as Lucas has work and he leaves. Susan has been listening in on the conversation and tries to find out who Jill is as she thinks Paul is two-timing Rebecca again. Elle refuses to give anything away. Paul returns to work and heads straight for his office. Taking a seat he is clearly looking worried. Elle goes to talk to him but Paul simply tells her "not now" before practically throwing her out of his office. When he closes the door we see some blood on his suit jacket. When Paul rolls the sleeve up we notice it's seeped through to his shirt as well. Paul immediately takes his jacket off and throws it down. He goes back to sitting at his laptop clearly very worried about something.

Erinsborough News - Editor's office: Paul rolls up his shirt sleeve desperately trying to hide the blood that is clearly showing. Elle re-enters the room with a CD containing some images of a proposed supermarket site that Paul had asked for and places the CD on his desk. Elle says that they need to talk. Outside Susan overhears this and goes to eavesdrop on the conversation. Elle admits she is worried about her dad and asks if he's been to see Jill. She also tells him he's got a good life and not to go back to his old ways. At that point the office door opens slightly so Susan runs back to her desk. Paul heads back out.

Erinsborough News - Exterior: Elle is standing outside the office when Susan approaches her still trying to find out more about Jill Ramsay. Elle is still refusing to give away any details, Susan warns her not to let Paul drag her down with him.

Dingoes' Den Gym: Steve and Toadie are training with the weights when Karl comes in for a workout. Didge offers to show him how to work the equipment but Karl tells her he performs surgery and he thinks he can figure it out and with that heads over to the running machine. Needless to say it's not long before the machine sends him flying! Didge, Toadie and Steve can't help but laugh at this and Karl gets a little defensive over the fact he's having to work out saying he hates his calves. Toadie leaves for a pizza so Steve starts working on the weights and Karl asks him for a few fitness techniques.
