Remi turns up looking for Mercedes, who has shirked her responsibilities to Lyrik following Remi’s rejection. At her motel room, Remi couldn’t be clearer – he’s in love with Bree. If Mercedes comes back to record with them, it has to be for the band, not for Remi. When she hasn’t shown, Bree asks Remi directly – why not? But Remi is evasive as he heads to the studio. At the studio, Mercedes surprises Remi when she turns up to play, and they’re all set to record. But unbeknownst to Remi, Bree has decided to pop into the studio and overhears he and Mercedes discussing what happened (or didn’t!) between them…
Tegan and Andrew have spent time with each other, and the social worker, and Tegan is keen to talk to Justin and Leah – alone. When she again raises the idea of Andrew living with her, Justin is resistant. Looking after Andrew is a big job, and Tegan’s basically a child herself. Tensions are rife, but they both agree on one thing – Andrew should have a say in his future.
When Justin approaches Andrew to float the topic, he offers an alternative – stay with him and Leah. They’ll support him. Justin is clear that it’s Andrew’s decision, but Andrew is clearly torn. At dinner with Justin, Leah, and Tegan later, Justin prompts Andrew – tell everyone what you told me on the way home. Andrew turns to Tegan – he’s sorry, but he’s decided to stay with Justin and Leah, and Tegan is barely able to mask her disappointment. Justin is thrilled, but when Theo finds an insomniac Andrew up late, Andrew confesses he lied – he does want to live with his sister after all.
