Wanting to show her support of Michael and Emilia, Tash decides to throw them a barbecue. As she feared, her cooking attempts are a disaster, but the real catastrophe comes when she goes to throw it away and finds Emilia’s discarded written confession. Confused Tash confronts Emilia, only to discover that Michael was involved too. As they explain the sordid events that took place around her mother’s death, Tash realises the extent of their betrayal. Needing to lash out, Tash steals the Sandman and, in the most public of statements, sets it on fire. Worried about how Lucas is coping now that Michael and Emilia are together, Sonya resolves to help him - only to provoke Toadie's frustration when, against his better judgment, she throws a poorly disguised attempt at a pity party. Channelling their hidden stress about their fertility issues, the fight blows out of proportion. The couple remain at odds, only for Toadie to find out his test results have come in – and his fertility still hasn’t improved. With their tensions still lingering, disappointed Toadie chooses not to share the bad news with Sonya. But how long can he keep this from her?

Determined to explain himself, Michael reaches out to Tash, desperate to let her know he never meant to hurt anyone. On Summer's advice, Tash hears him out, but will she ever be able to forgive him? Still tense from the night before, Toadie escapes to work, where his mood and actions soon arouse suspicion. When Charlotte assumes he’s sick, he reluctantly tells her about his fertility issues and, gaining unexpected comfort, confides in her his test results. However, when Sonya finds out he's chosen to share them with his boss over her, Toadie finds himself with some explaining to do: how will he manage to earn back her trust?
