After having resolved their issues, and re-establish their engagement, Roo and Harvey are better than ever and getting on swimmingly.

When Dex denies saying he wish he’d died, Sid realises that his son is falling deeper into a depressed state. Not knowing what to do, he calls a family meeting where he tells Sasha, Indi, and April that he’s worried about Dex. In the meantime, Marilyn has come over to cheer Dex up, and he asks for a tarot reading. The cards reveal that there is a change of healing, though hard work is still needed. Dex realises that he has a long journey, but it is a hopeful one. Gina is still struggling to deal with the lies John told about his time with Marilyn, while John is trying to avoid any further confrontation by keeping his distance.

John is apologetic, but Gina blames Marilyn for creating all this mess. After some reflection however, Gina realises her mistake and apologises to Marilyn. Gina and John decide that the only way they are going to resolve their issues is to spend some time living apart. Brax is frustrated at Casey for running away and leaving him with a mess, he takes it out on Natalie. But when she snaps and reveals that her own mother ran away never to be found again, Brax realises that he needs her to be there for him. In the meantime, Kyle, the unknown son of Danny, has kidnapped Casey and brought him to the desert in order to kill him for the murder of their father. When Casey sees the opportunity to grab his phone, he takes it and calls Brax. But Kyle catches him before he can tell Brax where he is. Romeo is acting weird, and people are starting to notice.

Casey wakes from being knocked over the head while Brax remains concerned that something is up. When Kyle realises that Brax isn’t going to let up, he forces Casey to call him and tells him to stop looking for him. But Casey gives his brother enough clues to where he is, and Brax decides to go and find him. He tries to convince Natalie to stay out of it, but she won’t let him go alone. When Liam sees that Natalie is getting mixed up in Braxton drama, he warns her to be careful and not underestimate the sort of danger Brax can find himself in. Natalie ignores the warning and follows Brax out to the desert. When Romeo returns home frazzled, Alf wonders what has happened. Romeo tells him about him punching Liam, and Alf is confused about what’s going on. When Indi learns about the attack, she confronts Romeo, but he shuts her down, explaining that none of this is any of her business. He locks himself in a public toilet, and takes some steroids. Liam starts to realise that something is up with Romeo, and when he approaches him about it, Romeo tells him that he doesn’t care about him or Indi – just as Indi enters to hear this. It is clear to both of them that something is up with Romeo.
