Pete doesn't want Moira to be sent down so Isaac doesn't grow up without a mother like they did. Pete states Emma was ill and they didn't help her; revenge won't make them feel any less guilty for that. He suggests Finn would want all this to stop, and to make it stop, they need to forgive. Diane asks Doug to wallpaper their bedroom but she later overhears Bob and Doug discussing Doug's selective hearing. At Wishing Well Cottage, Belle tells Lachlan she believes he should seek some professional help. Pete and Ross head into the farmhouse where Moira reaffirms she wants to make things right. Ross reveals they're not getting the police involved - she's got away with murder.

Diane confronts Doug about his selective hearing and frog marches him home to do the decorating. Bob presents Brenda with her now resized promise ring. Although she's clearly having second thoughts, Brenda puts on the ring. Lachlan admits he can't sleep as when he closes his eyes, he sees his family dying again. He states he feels so alone.

He reminds Moira she's been handed her life back so she's got to grab it. Cain tells Moira he's a better man because of her and it kills him seeing her hating herself like this.
