Erinsborough High - Corridor: Donna is staring at the flowers that have mysteriously appeared on her locker. Sunny asks her who sent them, Donna thinks it's Kyle.

No 22 - Living room: Susan calls around to see how Elle is. Lucas is on the phone trying to find something that will help Paul. He hangs up the phone admitting he might have something and looking rather pleased. He has been speaking to a mate who owns a garage in the area Jill lived in and he had a Ute come in for repair that looked like it had been in an accident and fits the description of the Ute that killed Jill.

Carpenter's Mechanics: Susan, Lucas and Elle are examining the Ute which is now repaired. Just as they do, the owner of the Ute approaches and is immediately suspicious about the three of them, wondering why they're so interested in his car. Elle works out that this is the owner of the Ute and the guy runs off with Lucas giving chase. Lucas catches him and the guy or "moron" as Lucas calls him tells them that he didn't mean to hit her. The guy describes Paul down to a tee and says that he pushed Jill in front of the car.

Susan admits that Elle was trying to put things right and get Paul off the hook so told the police everything she knows. Susan starts to tell Rebecca that Paul didn't hit Jill but is interrupted by Rebecca saying "no of course he didn't!"
