Having been unsuccessful in his search for her, Michael is shocked when the following day he returns to find Emilia on Ramsay Street. Meanwhile, Lucas uses the boot she left behind as an excuse to see Emilia again, but is disappointed when she rejects his offer of a date. Now aware Lucas knows Michael and Tash, Emilia is hesitant to pursue Lucas, but when he cheekily books a beauty appointment with her, she finds herself unable to resist being charmed by him. After a painful waxing session, Lucas has lost some hair but earned the chance to take Emilia out for dinner. But will he still be interested when he finds out who she really is? Clocking the flirty banter between Malcolm and Jade, Karl warns Malcolm to watch his step.
