Boyd and Stingray are discussing Stingray’s
sex life, until he storms off. Karl watches Paul and Izzy
discuss their business deal. He later accuses her of flirting
with Paul, which she admits to.
At the flat, Karl is on the phone to the wife
of his tennis partner, Chris. When he gets off the phone,
Izzy accuses him of flirting and he tells her that it’s completely
different. He accuses her of using Paul to get a business
deal and she tells him that she’s not going to let his jealousy
ruin this opportunity for her.
next morning, at the Community Hall, Sky is reading out a
letter from Lana to Serena. They run into Stingray and Sky
tells him about the letter. He suggests that they all go over
to Canada when they finish school, then he starts acting oddly
and runs off outside, before running in to grab his skateboard
then leaving again. A dog comes into the hall and a man grabs
it and drags it outside, before a young man tells him to stop
mistreating the dog. Sky and Serena applaud him and he tells
them that dogs are people too.
number 28, Sindi is guiding Stu through to the kitchen and
Susan tells him that she’s bought him some muesli. He decides
that he wants to get it himself and asks Susan to tell him
where it is. As he finds it, he also manages to knock a jar
from the kitchen bench. He apologises, while Susan decides
to head out. Sindi tells Stu to sit down, and he wants to
take off the bandages, but Sindi tells him to wait until Karl
comes over later.
and Izzy are in a better mood, having apparently made up the
night before and he makes them pancakes for breakfast. She
starts telling him about the plot of her book, and he reminds
her about Paul framing Phil Martin for fraud. She thinks that
one mistake shouldn’t be allowed to tarnish someone’s entire
life and she tells Karl that he’ll have to start to trust
the community hall, Sky and Serena are discussing Serena still
being in love with Stingray. Sky thinks that they’re meant
to be together – despite what happened with Shazza. Izzy then
comes in and tells Sky that she shouldn’t be working there.
Sky says that she’s helping Harold by working for free, so
Izzy tells her that they’re run out of muffins, quickly taking
the ones from the counter and giving them to Karl. As Sky
and Serena leave, Stingray comes in and rushes over to speak
to Karl about his ‘friend’. He explains that his friend’s
girlfriend might have left him with an unwanted present and
Karl tells him that it should be easy to take care of.
number 24, Sky is lacing the chocolate muffins with chilli
to get back at Izzy. Serena warns her that Izzy will get revenge,
and her evil makes chocolate chilli look like the Disney Channel.

Karl shines a torch and tells him to blink a few times, and
Stu lies that he can see. Sindi and Karl are both extremely

She sits with him and explains that everyone’s in agreement;
Harold and Lou will open their own coffee shop and she and
Max will open a bar. He tells her that they need to get together
and discuss sums, as she produces her plans for him.
is tasting the muffins and Serena warns her that Izzy is going
to go nuts. Sky asks Serena if she ever gets bored of being
so good and that she should live life like she only has six
weeks left. Sky suggests that Serena would spend her final
six weeks with Stingray, with which Serena has no chance to

goes to feed her. Stingray then walks in and she asks him
why he’s behaving so strangely. He says it’s something terrible
but he can’t tell her. She suggests that he pays a visit to
Karl and he bursts out of the door, passing Serena as he goes.
the Community Hall, Sky is claiming not to know how the chilli
got into the muffins, but Izzy tells her that she’ll have
to go home and make some more. Sky leaves, while Izzy tries
to sell some of the muffins to a customer, claiming that they’re
all the rage in New York delis.
Karl’s flat, Stingray is trying to explain what’s wrong with
him and Karl tells him to drop his pants, which he does. Karl
takes a quick look and tells him that it’s his nylon underpants
which are the problem. Stingray is extremely relieved and
he hugs Karl, who tells him to pull up his pants.
is at home, watching the footie, when Sindi appears in a negligee
and he pays absolutely no attention to her. She is suspicious
and asks him what she’s wearing, to which he replies that
it’s a nice, new dress. She realises that he can’t see, which
he finally admits to, so she drags him off to see the specialist.
number 28, Susan arrives home from shopping with Serena in
tow. Serena is about to leave, when Susan tells her all about
a boy she knew at school, who she really liked, but she never
approached. She then saw him years later, when he was married
and he admitted that he’d liked her back then. She tells Serena
that she has to be brave and talk to Stingray. There’s a knock
at the door and it’s Stingray’s brother, Dylan Timmins. He
says that he’s heard so much about her and then sees Serena,
who he remembers from the Community Hall. He sees Audrey and
picks her up, while Serena tells Susan that Dylan really loves
the flat, Karl is just home from a jog, when Paul and Izzy
come in. She tells him that they’ve struck a deal and they’ve
come back to celebrate with some champagne. Izzy explains
that they just have to draw up some contracts and that Karl
needs to relax and enjoy it. Izzy then makes a toast to leaving
the past behind them, where it belongs.
is telling Susan and Serena about his dream to be a vet, but
he isn’t smart enough, so he thought about being a veterinary
nurse, but he’d get beaten up in Colac. He says that he’s
only just out of juvenile detention, so he needs to help his
mum before he thinks about going back to studying. Stingray
then walks in and Dylan is happy to see him. Stingray is less
happy, and he punches his brother, much to everyone’s surprise.
the house, Sindi says she’ll get them some Irish coffee and
they can spend the afternoon together in their room. He says
that he doesn’t want people patronising him for the rest of
his life and he has to face it – the specialist has confirmed
that he’ll be blind for the rest of his life.
