Tuesday 16th February
Gavin arrives at Nate’s place, slightly tipsy and looking to spend more time with his son. Nate lets him in, completely unaware that he’s just groped Ricky at Angelo’s. Back at the restaurant, Ash can’t believe what Gavin did, and wants Ricky to tell Nate, but she’s torn – Nate and Gavin have only started talking again, and Ricky doesn’t want to ruin things.
Kat tries to convince Emerson that they need to keep investigating Charlotte, as her story about Trystan doesn’t add up – they are connected somehow. Emerson reminds her she isn’t a homicide detective, but she stresses how important it is that they don’t let Charlotte walk free if she’s a murderer.
Charlotte meets Gunno at prison, and he asks her what happened to Trystan. Charlotte claims it was an accident. Gunno tells her that even though Trystan’s gone, she’s still not off the hook, and Charlotte’s backed into a corner again.
Phoebe hits a wall as she tries to prepare more for her next class. The door bursts open, revealing Ash wearing a robe. He turns some music on and does a strip tease for her. Phoebe stops him before he goes all the way, feeling lucky she’s got a boyfriend that will embarrass himself for her. She agrees that she needed the distraction, and they tumble towards the bedroom.

Kat still thinks it’s connected to Trystan’s murder, but Charlotte keeps her cool. Kat reluctantly lets her go. As Charlotte leaves, Kat gets a disturbing call from the hospital.
Nate’s stunned as he realises his father deliberately drove into the tree. He tries to block out his father’s accident, but Ricky can’t accept it – it just feels cold.

The next morning, Olivia’s excited as she gets ready to catch up with Hunter. Irene suspects there’s something going on between them, but Olivia says they’re just friends.
Kat goes to prison to see Gunno. She clearly means business, and Gunno is intrigued. Meanwhile, Kat grills Gunno, but hits a wall when she realises he’s matched covers stories with Charlotte.
VJ agrees to help Zac clean the caravan park as Hunter comes home. Hunter tells VJ about Olivia’s scars, but doesn’t think it’s his place to say something, and makes VJ promise to keep quiet as well. VJ can’t stop himself when he sees Olivia, mentioning that Hunter saw her scars, and offers to be there for her if she needs to talk. Embarrassed and angry, Olivia storms off.
Thursday 18th February

As Roo escapes to pack for her trip John moves to his laptop, and is thrilled when Jett appears, explaining that he’s come to spend time with him while Marilyn’s away.
Oscar arrives at Angelo’s and is disturbed to see Matt at the table, so he joins in. Maddy and Matt argue there shouldn’t be a strict rule about costumes, but Oscar takes Asia’s side. Maddy knows he’s deliberately winding her up.
Olivia returns home and confides in Irene about her cutting, revealing that it gives her a release. She explains that her Uncle James’ friend used to abuse her. She didn’t think James would believe her – she was so ashamed, and hated her body. The scars are a reminder of how she felt. Irene hugs Olivia as she starts to let go. Olivia continues to open up about what her uncle’s friend did to her, sending a chill down Irene’s spine. But what can she do?
