Extended Summary

At the Diner, Kirsty and Jade are introduced to Ailsa by Colleen who mentions the blackout last night and one of the girls having asthma.

Duncan and Nick have heard them, and realise that their practical joke has backfired. They decide to bring the fuses over to the Sutherlands, lying that they found them on the side of a road. Alf calls over and discovers what the kids were up to; Irene is there and he suggests that it may have been them who caused the blackout.

Irene pops over to the Sutherlands, and asks Shelley to come over. Ken confronts Hayley and Mitch when Shelley arrives, about letting the kids stay in the house. Mitch and Hayley apologise to her.
