Extended Summary

Dex is worried when Sid’s medical convention alibi is revealed as a lie. Calling a reverse number, he discovers that Sid has checked himself into a psychiatric facility. Sid talks with Doc Padley as his fears bubble to the surface. It seems everything that has happened to him in his life has had an enormous impact on his wellbeing. As the doctor implores Sid to concentrate on his strengths rather than his weaknesses, a familiar voice calls from the distance. It’s Dex, wanting to know what is going on.

Marilyn takes it upon herself to try and cheer up Celia following her fight with Alf. Having heard Celia’s side of the story, Marilyn decides to mediate the two. Alf eventually relents as brother and sister put their concerns on the table.

Rosie finds Sasha on her front door wanting to walk to school. When Rosie declines, Sasha demands that she tell her what’s going on – she’s a friend wanting to help. Rosie reveals that her dad lives in the city with another family and that her mum left a few years back, so she’s effectively on her own. With the truth out, Sasha solidifies their friendship with a hug. Rosie says that living on her own does have its perks as the girls kick back with a bowl of popcorn.

Romeo talks to John about the abandoned gym. Raising the idea with Indi, he finally wins her over – together they’re going to go into business.
