Xavier is giving Gina the silent treatment as she tries desperately to talk to him about what happened. John isn’t sure now where he stands with Gina, feeling that he’s partly to blame. Gina reassures John that she doesn’t regret the night before. Gina confides in Tony who finds the whole situation very humourous, pointing out that things could have been a lot worse had Xavier arrived home five minutes earlier. He reminds her that she put her life on hold when her husband left, to bring up her kids, and it’s time to start enjoying herself. Despite his history with John, Tony gives Gina his blessing and thinks that Xavier should do the same. Even though Rachel delivers a pep talk to Xavier and he approaches Gina and apologises, it’s an empty apology as Xavier soon finds himself at the Surf Club confronting John. With venom in his words Xavier tells him to stay away from his mum.
Miles is trying desperately to work out a way to make up with Leah after their fight. He decides to go and see her, white flag in hand, and beg for forgiveness. But once Miles confronts Leah, the reception is cold as Leah tells him just how much Miles has hurt her. Leah wonders how she can ever go to JiuJitsu classes again and get her confidence back. She tells him to stay away for good. Soon enough Leah realises how harsh she was towards Miles, feeling like she took all her frustrations out on him, and comes around wth some moussaka as a peace offering. No sooner are the two reunited, when Miles puts his foot in it again, telling Leah that Elijah likes her too. She is very excited about this but, Miles tries to explain about Elijah’s confusion over his feelings towards her.
Meanwhile, Nicole is struggling to keep up with the demand of coffee orders from her mentor Britt Hobart. She has realised that her big break into the fashion world isn’t so big after all – it’s all collecting coffee and listening to Britt complaining about her boyfriend Rodrigo. When both Alf and Aden tell Nicole that she can’t expect too much in her first week, Nicole is quick to agree that she needs to be more patient but is still hoping to talk to Britt about it. When Nicole offers to help Britt with the designs she’s behind in, Britt tells her she’s sweet and asks if she wants to grab some lunch. Nicole jumps at the chance but has got the wrong end of the stick once more, and it’s clear Britt actually meant for Nicole to go out and fetch HER some lunch. At the end of the day when Aden asks how things went when Nicole approached Britt about doing more design work, feeling humiliated Nicole lies telling him everything went fine and that they went out to lunch.
