Evelyn continues to drown, with no-one around to save her.
A downtrodden Kat tells Phoebe she needs a job and Phoebe may have the answer. When Phoebe swings by to ask Brody if he can hire Kat, she’s interrupted by Justin trying badly to wrap Brody’s injured leg up for a shower. Phoebe uses the opportunity to offer to play nurse and do it herself – in exchange for a favour.
Meanwhile a dressed up Tori arrives at the caravan park to Duncan with a peace offering. She hands over a bottle of wine, apologising for snapping at him before. She covers by saying she just hated seeing him beat himself up over the crash – the only thing he’s responsible for is saving their lives. As Tori goes to leave, Duncan takes a chance and asks if she’d join him to share the wine? Tori hesitates, but seeing Duncan is genuine, eventually accepts.
Chris has taken Evelyn to the cemetery at her request. She tries to explain how alone she’s felt since Oscar died, as Chris agrees he wakes up every day hoping it was just a bad dream that he lost Hannah. Evelyn doesn’t know how she can cope and Chris understands. With Chris’s support, Evelyn goes to Oscar’s grave to talk to him, and finally say goodbye.
Kat starts at Salt for her first shift and thanks Phoebe for helping her get the job. Just as she’s familiarising herself with the menu, Ash walks in – he can’t believe she works here. Kat takes it as criticism and gets her back up.

At school the next day, Zac tells Hunter he has to re-sit the exam his marks were changed on. Hunter refuses, thinking it’s unfair he’s being punished for someone else’s mistake. As Hunter relays the information to Olivia she pushes him to reconsider.
On the beach, Kat is still troubled by the mess her life is at the moment when Ash approaches. He immediately tells her not to look at him, but sits behind her. He knows she feels like she’s made all these mistakes lately, but those mistakes show Ash she cares and she’s got a big heart – and that’s not a flaw. He thinks she’s one of the most beautiful people he’s ever met.
Late in the evening, Hunter is mostly asleep when he hears someone in his van. It looks like Olivia and he says a sleepy “hey” when she starts to kiss him and he reciprocates. Things are heating up when Hunter pulls back to see her face and... it’s Tabitha. Hunter scrambles back, shocked and switches on a light. What is she doing? Tabitha counters what is he doing with her? Olivia won’t be happy. Hunter realises he’s been trapped…
