Extended Summary

With VJ asking about Elijah, Leah finally decides to give him a call in Africa and see how he is doing. Finally she makes the call and finds that Elijah has in fact left Africa and on his way back to Australia. Colleen suggests that perhaps Elijah is returning to Australia with romantic intentions. Leah goes to find out what Miles knows and he tells her that he will have to wait till Elijah gets back to find out what he wants.

It’s Miles’ first day back at work and Gina gives him a troubled teen to take on, a guy who has been expelled from Yabbie Creek High – it’s none other than Casey Braxton. Miles tries to explain to Gina that he might not be the best person for the job, but Gina is insistent. Miles explains to Casey that as long as he does his work and turns up to class, they shouldn’t have any problems.

Tensions between Romeo and Casey are high, and some heated words in class leads to a week’s detention for Romeo. When Casey later has a go at Miles, Gina places him on detention also. With Romeo and Casey ending up in detention together, they find that they do actually get along with each other. Venting their frustrations, the boys realise they have more in common than they thought.

Having left Indi’s the previous night without saying goodbye, both Romeo and Indi are feeling frustrated with each other. She confronts Romeo the next morning and he tells her that she was showing off in front of her Uni friends. They later meet up and Romeo admits that he’s feeling left out of Indi’s life now that she’s at Uni and he’s back at school. Indi reiterates that she still wants him and they kiss and make up.

For his next masterpiece, Dex is filming the River Boys in Summer Bay, curious to watch the group and the way they are all acting. He shows the footage to Colleen and Leah who warn him to be careful around them. Secretly filming Casey in his first days at Summer Bay High, Casey finally approaches Dex on the beach to find out what he has been doing. He is joined by two other River Boys who decide to teach Dex a lesson.
