On the beach, Tane reassures a skittish Felicity – no one has posted that video, and they haven’t heard from the blackmailer again. Knowing the truth, Felicity feigns normalcy, but dodges Eden when she wants to catch up. Later, Felicity is brushing off Eden’s concern about her borrowing money from Cash, when Tane overhears. Tane instantly knows why she borrowed the money and can’t believe it – it’s only a matter of time until the next demand now. How could she be so naïve? Tane is soon proven correct when Felicity receives another text from her blackmailer – now they want another 20 grand. Felicity apologises to Tane, and he’s understanding, but when he leaves the room she responds to the demand – she’ll get her blackmailer the money.
