9:00pm – Wednesday, May 16 on ABC1
There is much relief and whooping when Charlie (Abe Forsythe) is given a clean bill of health and returns home. But his happy homecoming is clouded when he learns of Roo’s (Alison Bell) attempts to sleep with Marcus (Damon Herriman). Roo and Charlie quickly find themselves plunged into less than comfortable conversations that thankfully end up bonding them further together. However, when this bonding takes on an amorous dimension, Charlie’s health rapidly deteriorates and Roo is propelled once more to get Marcus to heal her. But how, when he has so adamantly rejected her.
Roo decides it is time to get sneaky and much to EJ’s (Celia Pacquola) consternation resorts to extreme and unconventional means that involve chicken noodle soup, sticky tape and banana icecream. But Roo hasn’t thought her plan through and it quickly becomes apparent that she’s going to need a contingency.
Not easily deterred, Roo enlists Zach’s (Toby Truslove) help in getting what she wants from Marcus. The way she sees it, Zach kind of owes her. If it wasn’t for her, he wouldn’t be the death survivor he claims to be. Despite Zach’s best efforts, Marcus becomes aware of Roo’s plan and enjoys the torment of confronting her. Humiliated, Roo has no choice but to retreat – for now. It seems Marcus once again holds the gloating upper hand but privately we see just how rattled he is by her dogged ways.
