* Aden’s not playing second best anymore.
* Trouble comes looking for Bridget.
* Martha finds the courage to keep going.
Martha tells Rachel and Jack that’s so scared that the cancer will come back after her chemo is finished. She goes home from hospital, instead of having the chemo.
Jack says she will be strong enough to take over once the chemo is finished and continues to encourage her – saying they need to live life for today, they can’t control the future. He urges her to get the final round of chemo and to trust that they wil be strong enough to face it together. Martha agrees to go to the hospital the next day and thanks him for his support.
A guy called Brian comes to town – wanting money from Bridget – and says he’s not leaving town until she pays up. Bridget says she’s on the straight and narrow these days and wants him to stay away. Brian keeps pestering her.
Alf asks Bridget about Brian. She says Brian is her ex-boyfriend and she owes him some money for her medical expenses while she was sick and he’s back to get his money. She says it was $5000 and she’s paying him back in installments. Alf offers to give her a loan and manages to convince Bridget to agree. Bridget gives Brian the $5000 – saying it was the $3000 plus a $2000 bonus to make sure he leaves her alone. Brian leaves saying she couldn’t go straight even if her life depended on it.
Bridget promises to pay Alf back every cent.
Belle and Aden
Aden visits Belle in hospital and brings in his iPod with a special playlist for her. She’s stressed out about the consent forms being stolen.
Later, Murray visits Belle in hospital and denies taking the forms. He tells her he’s found out that something is going on at the site – they will be moving the waste out at night. He says he’s going back that night and Belle offers to go with him.
Angelo brings flowers just as Belle is leaving hospital and gets annoyed that Aden lent her his iPod.
Belle tells Angelo that Murray visited her – but he wants her to drop it as she’s getting in over her head and thinks Murray is dodgy. Belle says she can’t just forget about it.
Alf thinks he did ok in his exams.
That night, Belle goes with Murray to the development site but nothing happens so they leave.
Meanwhile, Angelo goes looking for her, worried about her. The next day, Belle tells him she was with Murray but nothing happened at the development. Angelo doesn’t want them to have any secrets.
Belle talks to Aden and says they have to be really careful being together. Aden wants her just to tell him the truth or it will blow up in their faces. Belle says there are things bigger than them at stake here. Aden says he can’t go sneaking around behind Angelo’s back and can’t be with her until Angelo knows the truth.
