Bree and Remi are enjoying a moment together when Mercedes roars in with a huge opportunity – she has a direct number for powerhouse music producer Reuben Phillips. Noting Remi’s reaction, Bree can tell it’s important and encourages him to go, even as her discomfort with Mercedes grows. Brainstorming ways to get through Reuben’s evasive PA, Bree is once again pushed to the outer. Eden reinforces that Mercedes is not to be trusted so Bree decides to remind Mercedes where she stands: “You need to back off”.
Eden barely has time for Lyrik as she hurries out the door. Instead, she fronts up at the police station for an update from Cash on the Felicity case. There are no new leads on the footage or the case at large and Cash is hitting dead end after dead end. Eden begs him to come home but the DNA results return from Felicity’s attacker. This could be the breakthrough he’s looking for. Eden tells Cash she knows what he’s doing – working so he doesn’t need to grapple with what happened to his sister. Alf voices his frustrations over being unable to help Roo while she’s in hospital, and for Cash, the helplessness resonates.
John is discharged from hospital, but Bree warns that he should really have someone staying with him. Stubborn John reckons he’ll be fine on his own, but Irene intervenes. She insists John will be staying with her. John doesn’t want pity, but Irene maintains she’s only being a good friend. It doesn’t take long before John has his feet well and truly under the table, eating Irene’s breakfast and then complaining there’s too much butter on it. Has Irene bitten off more than she can chew?
