Extended Summary

Friction continues to follow Dex and April post toga party. She is upset with the way he treated Sid during the gathering. A chat with Alf convinces Dex to be open and honest with his dad. Sid admits that he’s struggling to allow Dex to live normally given what’s happened, but Dex reassures him that things are going to be fine. Dex and April talk about their insecurities and it’s clear to them that the toga party is just a night to forget. All is forgiven and their relationship is back to normal.

Maddy’s deteriorating health leaves Spencer with no option but to call Roo. Roo and Harvey’s arrival at school angers Maddy, but it’s clear she’s in need of their help. After lunch at Summer Bay House, Spencer and Maddy decline Roo’s offer to stay with them, insisting they’ll be just fine on their own. Roo is adamant they need to remain under her care, but Harvey’s not so sure Alf would like it.

Heath receives a call that Darcy has run away. Finding her at the share house, Heath gets Natalie’s help. A walk on the beach with Heath and Darcy reveals the underlying issue – Darcy wants to move to Summer Bay to live with Heath. Back at the share house, Heath announces to Bianca that he’s going to file for custody. Darcy is ecstatic with the news, but it’s evident that Bianca is not entirely convinced it’s a good idea.
