Steph is unhappy about Mannix staying at the motel, especially when Mannix acts increasingly suspicious. Mannix crosses with Elly at the complex and they arrange a date. Leo finds out about this and urges Elly to stay away from the guy, although does not reveal why––and Elly listens to Leo’s advice. Leo asks Mannix to leave but Mannix won’t, threatening to tell about a secret from Leo’s past. Steph later finds Mannix messing mysteriously about in his room.
Terese prepares to tell Gary the news about her cancer. However, when she sees how he is trying to focus on Xanthe, she’s unable to go through with it. She keeps her secret, though Paul is beginning to suspect something is up…

It’s Paige’s birthday party. On the way there, Amy chats to Jack and discovers he still has feelings for Paige. She urges him to come clean, but when he does, Paige rejects him.
Terese has thrown herself into organising Paige’s party as a distraction from her health scare, but later faces reality when scheduling in a medical check-up for the coming week. Despite her fears, she hides her stress from everyone, determined not to stir up concern. However, Paul has previously sensed her distraction and shows up at Paige’s birthday party with a gift and the offer of his company. Terese reveals nothing, but is comforted by his strong, caring support. Where will this lead?
Wednesday 5th July
After Leo’s revelation that he ratted on the Renshaws, David tells him he’s in way over his head. He needs to call an ambulance and then the police. But believing the police can’t protect him, Leo instead begs David to get painkillers for Mannix from the hospital. When David refuses, Leo reminds him that he’s the one who supported David through his medical degree by working for the Renshaws. He owes him.
Paige is worried that Jack’s being weird with her after telling him that she doesn’t see a romantic future for them. She tries to talk to him, but Jack’s too consumed with dealing with Mannix. He can’t tell Paige why he’s so harried, which only fuels her suspicions further.
Xanthe’s confidence is at rock bottom in the wake of what’s happened with Finn. Gary and Sheila are both desperately concerned, especially considering Xanthe’s insistence that she’s not returning to school.
