Extended Summary

After their ongoing troubles, Elijah decides to move back to the rectory for a few days to give Leah some space. Elijah admits to Miles that he does want to spend the rest of his life with Leah, but he also wants to spend the rest of his life doing relief work too. VJ is also feeling down about it, and tells Leah that he hopes they work things out.

Elijah soon makes a decision – he’s decided to go and help out with the current earthquake, but he reassures Leah that he will be back in a few months and he still wants to get married. But Leah doesn’t want a life, which involves yearning for Elijah to come home. She loves him, but has to end the relationship then and there. Elijah is leaving for West Danmar that evening and so they say their goodbyes. Later on Leah breaks down and VJ comforts her.

Marilyn is preparing a surprise picnic for Sid and while she’s at the diner picking up ingredients, she runs into Dex and introduces herself. It’s then that Dex realises not only is this his father’s new girlfriend but he is completely smitten with her. He later questions Miles about her. Meanwhile as he has the picnic with Marilyn, Sid is surprised that Dex was so kind to Marilyn, and sees it as a good sign for their relationship. When Marilyn later receives flowers that aren’t from Sid, we’re left to wonder just who her other admirer is.
