Mali’s back teaching in the surf and feeling amazing. Mackenzie’s equally as stoked, officially retired as his substitute. Mali asks her for one more favour, can she help him organise a little something special to treat Rose? A bottle of wine and a meal for two in a prime spot on the Salt balcony.
Rose tries to explain to Xander her inherent need to learn about her heritage. She means no ill will toward their parents, but this is something she has to do. But Xander doesn’t get it. She leaves to see Mali at Salt but Xander isn’t finished. He insists Rose tell their mother what she’s doing, or Xander will. Rose leaves for the beach as quickly as she can, and Mali catches up to her. She finally explains her search to find her father and Mali is highly supportive. He will be right there with her. And sure enough, Rose stumbles across an old drama group photo containing a man who could be her dad.

It takes persuasion and time, but he might be willing to help, if she promises to tell him everything she knows. From the very beginning.
