Karl, Susan, Libby, Dan and Ben are having lunch at a table, Karl mentions that he has to go to the gym which surprises Dan who wonders when Karl started getting fit. Karl replies that he has started training and at least he knows what his body is capable of, referring to Susan wanting to be a surrogate without actually saying it out loud. Libby doesn't understand this but Susan refuses to go into detail. Libby is clearly worried.

No 28 - Dining Table: Libby has come round to see Susan and is demanding to know what Karl meant by that earlier remark. Susan is about to tell her about the surrogacy issue when she's interrupted by Karl who wants to speak to Susan alone. Karl wants to know what Susan said to Libby, Susan said it was nothing but admits she nearly told Libby. Karl is not impressed.

Miranda enters and shows Steve photos of Dec and Didge's wedding before Steve goes off to give Karl some advice on training. Steve starts talking to Karl about Didge's pregnancy and it's obvious Steve is happy about the pregnancy.

Charlie's: Steph, Lucas and Toadie are discussing betting strategies when Elle enters looking for Lucas. Charlie asks Callum what they're doing so Callum explains as best as he can what they are doing. Elle smacks Lucas over the head when he finds out the betting is about Didge's baby before walking off. Elle admits to Lucas she thinks that Rebecca has been in touch with Paul. Elle storms off, Lucas goes back up to the counter announcing there are no more bets before snatching the book and running after Elle.

Lassiter's Complex: Lucas is trying to catch up with Elle and is trying to find out how Elle knows that Rebecca is in touch with Paul. He stops her getting into her car and hugs her. Lucas suggests that they try and find out what Rebecca knows and eventually lets Elle into her car.

Harold's Store: Sophie, Harry and Kate are sat at a table, Lou is practically begging Kate to return to work but no matter how hard he begs she isn't interested in working for Harold's Store as long as Elle owns the place. Sophie is drawing a picture, Kate notices that there is a new bit there, a person standing by the road watching Jill's accident and wonders who it is. She's surprised when Sophie says "me".

No 26 - Kitchen: Rebecca enters the house and checks that no-one is in before letting Paul in to the house from the laundry area. Paul admits that he found the Ramsay kids father and that he is dead. Paul says that he is responsible for Jill's death, Rebecca tries to assure him he's not but Paul's not listening and insists he makes a call to turn himself in. He is just about to do this when there is a knock at the door - he goes to hide in the laundry room again. Elle and Lucas walk in and confront Rebecca about speaking to Paul. Rebecca is about to reply to this when Paul opens the laundry door to reveal himself.

No 26 - Kitchen: Rebecca, Paul, Elle and Lucas are sitting around the dining table, Elle thinks she should've been told what was going on. Rebecca points out that Elle launched a manhunt through the local paper and tells Elle that Sophie witnessed the accident.

No 28 - Front Garden: Libby approaches Susan who's doing some gardening trying to find out what's wrong.

As the police car draws up the Ramsay kids return home and everyone stops to watch what's happening.

The police and Paul are stopped at the door by Toadie who wants to speak with his client but Paul is refusing to listen to anyone. The police and Paul leave shortly followed by Toadie, Rebecca, Elle and Lucas. Paul is led down the driveway of number 26 by the police in full view of the Ramsay kids. As this happens Sophie suffers a flashback of the accident and realises that she can't see Paul punished for a crime she didn't commit. She breaks free from Kate's hold of her and runs towards Paul shouting "No!" She hugs Paul tightly and thanks him for trying to help Jill. As he hugs her back, you can see tears in Paul's eyes.

No 26 - Living Room: Toadie, Rebecca, Harry, Sophie, Kate and the police are all listening to Sophie's statement of events. She explains that Jill ran on to the road.
