As the storm gets worse, the resident of Summer Bay are spread over various locations. An evacuation centre has been set up at the school by Gina, Miles and Bianca, but with water leaking through the ceiling… it’s not looking as safe as they thought. Colleen is being her usual self and terrifying everyone by screaming that they are all in danger; she can feel it! Casey is in a bad mood, and in turn is taking out his frustrations on Ruby. The two bicker about him dropping out of school for most of the episode (while mopping a never ending stream of water down the school stairs), until Ruby makes a joke about the River Boys and Casey takes it to heart. Casey tells her she doesn’t have to worry about him anymore, because they are over.
Romeo manages to get Harvey to the safety of his 4WD, but his path is blocked by fallen trees and branches. As he tries to reverse out of there, he spins his wheels and nearly ends up over the edge of a cliff. Romeo carries Harvey out of the car, manages to somehow pull the 4WD up and out of the cliff’s edge, carries Harvey back into the car and gets them both to the hospital. What a hero. Alf and Roo are pleased they made it back, as is Indy; who was sure she had lost Romeo to the storm. Dennis is impressed with Romeo and Alf’s brave efforts, and tells Romeo that when the new Marina opens, he will be sending all his charter business their way. Nice.
VJ is at the school evacuaition centre with Miles, but is so worried about his Mum being alone at the diner that he too braves the storm to be with her. Elijah who is also trapped at the diner, is left in the awkward position of being with his ‘old’ family for a while. He sees Leah in pain, but she shrugs it off. As the night goes on, Leah seems to be getting worse, before she reveals that she is bleeding and scared that she is losing the baby.
Back at the school, Bianca begins to see a new side to Heath as he tends to his daughter Darcy. That is, until Tegan shows up and takes her back out into the storm. Good parenting by both parties. Bianca tries to talk to Heath, but he snaps at her, telling her to get out of his face.
All of a sudden the lights go out, and Gina, Miles and Bianca begin to usher everyone to a different part of the school. As the leaking water worsens, Heath sees that Bianca is in danger, and runs to her. Casey and Miles look on as part of the ceiling collapses on top of Heath and Bianca, trapping them underneath the rubble.
On the upside, worse things have happened to Bianca over the past few weeks. I would say being trapped under a river boy (and by this I mean actually underneath him) would probably be a highlight for her
