Cain’s fury extends to Chrissie this week also when he tells her he wants her share in the garage or Lachlan will suffer the consequences. Lawrence and Ronnie are distraught to hear that Lachlan has been beaten up in prison – twice! They assume Cain is behind it but Rebecca thinks he is just bluffing. Cain decides to take things a step further and visits Lachy in prison telling him to take his advice or he’ll die.
Chrissie is tearful as she tells Lawrence that Lachlan has been attacked again and decides she has no choice but to sign the garage over to Cain, before Lachlan makes a confession.

She accompanies him to the salon and Kerry is left open mouthed when fit guy, Nathan enters too. Will he catch Finn’s eye and is this all a bit too much of a coincidence?
Later, Pete and Emma are pleased to hear that Finn’s got a date, completely unaware Tracy has hired a male escort. Finn sees Kasim at a bar and in an attempt to make him jealous, shows off that he’s on a date with Nathan, who is sat on the corner.
