Belle receives a call from Rebecca informing her Lachlan has been sentenced to life. Everyone in the pub is delighted, unaware of what's unfolding outside. An injured Vanessa crawls away from the flames and phones Charity. Inside the pub, the smoke alarm begins going off so everyone evacuates.

Graham admits he thought he was in control, but he realises needs help. The firefighters arrive at the pub and begin putting out the flames. Belle doesn't believe this is a coincidence and is certain Lachlan was behind this. Donny speeds down country roads unaware Johnny in the back of the car. He's only alerted to Johnny's presence when the youngster says "mummy". At the farm, Cain continues to drown his sorrows. Moira grabs the can of beer for his hand and tells him this ends now. Donny decides to leave Johnny at the roadside. At that moment, Charity spots Vanessa's car and Donny and Johnny standing next to it. She parks in front of Vanessa's car blocking it in, then puts Johnny in the back of her car before picking up a metal pole from the ground and confronting Donny. Donny blames the Dingles for Lachlan rotting in prison although Charity reminds Donny his son is in prison because he's a murder. When Donny comments Vanessa got in the way, Charity swings the pole at him. A struggle ensues and Donny manages to get hold of the pole. Donny stands over Charity with the pole in hand. He again tells Charity that his son's in prison due to her family although Charity hits back that Lachlan's in prison because he's a monster. Donny is distracted by sirens wailing in the distance which allows Charity to regain possession of the pole.
