Their good times are cut short when Harriet realises she has Prue’s diary, and Harlow is crushed. Ned tries to play happy couples with Amy, but Harlow’s quiet becomes increasingly distracting.

Harlow has a drink with Corey to get thoughts of Ned out of her head. She’s finally having fun on her vacation… Until Harriet steals her mother’s diary, that is. Will she be able to find out why her aunt lied to her, and will she be able to get it back? Ned braces himself for a painful confrontation with Amy, but he’s taken aback when he discovers Harlow only gave Amy half the storey. How much longer will Ned be able to keep his dirty little secret hidden from his new girlfriend?

Harlow is conflicted by Corey’s request that she burn her mother’s diary on Wednesday. It’s her final link to Prue, but she wants to be free of The Order, so she burns the diary in the end. She offers to cook Corey a thank-you meal after making amends with her Aunt. When he tells Harlow he’s into her, she reluctantly declines because Ned is still playing in the back of her mind. She recommends that they remain friends, but is this spark too strong to be extinguished?

Roxy continues making moves while fielding empathetic phone calls from her family, and she has some news for Kyle…

Chloe and Terese are having trouble getting their Fashion Week ideas past Montana. Chloe is astute enough to notice that Leo seems to get along better with the fashion magnate, and she proposes they utilise him to make their lives easier. Terese unwillingly makes the request, knowing that Montana made a ‘indecent proposition’ to Leo last week, but she has no idea that Leo is currently having an affair with Montana. Meanwhile, Paul arrives home, and Terese and Leo are taken aback by his laid-back demeanour. He claims he wants to stay out of Fashion Week, but Terese is sceptical; she knows he’s doing something…

Thursday: Leo and Terese are concerned about Paul’s motives as he wines and dines Montana Marcel. Terese thinks he’s out to get her, while Leo worries that Paul’s interest in Montana is amorous. They’re pleasantly surprised to discover that they were wrong — Paul’s interest in Montana is solely commercial. Terese is relieved, but she has no idea that he has a plan to lull her into a false sense of security. Meanwhile, Leo is starting to get the sensation that Montana is in charge of their sexy side gig, and it’s not a good one…

David’s life is returning to normal now that Aaron has been released from the hospital. Even a brief concern that Mick has overheard Freya and David discussing their dubious conduct isn’t enough to knock David off track. Freya and David are finally getting the wonderful days they deserve.

Glen’s world is turned upside down when he learns that Leo has hired Ishani to work at the vineyard. While he obsesses over how he’ll work with his daughter on a daily basis, Chloe strikes up a quick friendship with him. It appears to be kismet, with a vacant room at No. 24 and Ishani in need of a new place to call home. Mackenzie has a sneaking suspicion that Chloe’s bright connection with Ishani is romantic, but Chloe hasn’t even considered it. When Nicolette discovers that the lady she’s been heartbroken over is moving into the block, Ishani’s desire to move in goes awry.

Friday: The possibility of Ishani moving in with Chloe makes Nicolette nervous, and Ishani considers backing out. Chloe eventually wins Ishani over by sharing an honest account of her relationship with Nicolette, while Jane helps Nicolette view this as an opportunity to redeem herself in Ishani’s eyes. Everyone seems to have accepted Ishani’s choice to move into No. 24 – but none of the girls realise that Glen is the one who has been most shaken by it.

When Leo tries to back out of a date with Montana, he is disappointed to learn that she will not allow him. David encourages Leo to turn off the computer because he’s worried about what he’s gotten himself into. Montana, on the other hand, refuses, leaving Leo with no idea how to handle the situation without upsetting a key Lassiters partner.

Shannon overcomes her fears and has her hearing checked with Curtis at her side. Shannon, however, remains hesitant even when the test confirms that she requires assistance, confessing that the entire process makes her overly aware of her age. Curtis eventually convinces Shannon that a hearing aid will help her better connect with her granddaughter, which leads to a touching moment between her and Aubrey.

There’s nothing standing in the way of Freya and Levi now that she’s stress-free. It’s evident that these two are made for each other. When David arrives at work, though, he discovers a disturbing anonymous message on his desk that simply states, ‘I know what you did.’ Is Gareth’s nightmare coming back?
