As the Council Meeting continues, the clock is ticking for Xavier to get John back to fight for the Bottled Water Ban. Alf tries to delay proceedings to give them more time, but Xavier comes back to the meeting having given up. But just when all hope is lost, in comes John giving a compassionate plea to the Council – it seems Gina’s words got through to him. Unfortunately the Council vote against the ban but approve water fountains. It is a small victory but April and Xavier are happy and report back to Gina. The true victory for John comes later when Gina approaches, very impressed that he changed his mind. Maybe there is some hope for these two yet.
Dex is surprised and ecstatic that Graves has agreed to go on a date with him, on the condition they make it a double with Indi and Romeo. Little does Dex know it’s a disguised effort for Graves to find out more clues about the murder from Romeo. Romeo and Indi reluctantly agree to come to the date, although they are still on shaky ground after Indi stole Romeo’s letter from Annie.
At the date, with Robertson keeping an eye from a distance, Graves keeps on questioning Romeo which Indi reads as flirtation. Indi feels Romeo is still angry at her for reading the letter and is consistently on edge. Sick of being interrogated and realising they’re not having a good time, Romeo and Indi make their escape leaving Graves and Dex to get to know each other better. To Grave’s surprise she finds herself quite charmed by the odd teenager. At the end of the night, Dex tries his luck by asking her out again. However Graves cannot keep up the charade and confesses the date was a set up to get information out of Romeo. Dex is devastated.
