Episode Overview

The time has finally arrived for Christian to face his punishment for the robbery; luckily Sammy is there to help him prepare for court. But when Aaron returns, Christian's conscience gets the better of him and he changes his story to protect his friend. Concerned by the path Christian is taking, Sammy enlists the help of Christian's oldest friend Kaylah to try and convince him to change his mind. As Kaylah hugs Christian in support, Tara sees them and her jealousy rears it head. When she discovers that Christian has a court hearing and hasn't confided in her about any of it she lets loose –how could he not tell her? Christian's response is that she doesn't know him and if she's honest she doesn't want to, and Tara is left with the decision of whether to go and support Christian in court. Meanwhile, Ethan has received interest from a company in Spain who are looking to take on young choreographers. Feeling abandoned yet again, Kat devises a plan to get Tara and Ethan back together so that he will stay in Sydney, but her plan backfires when both Tara and Ethan see through her machinations. It takes a conversation with Abigail for Kat to realize that people aren't always abandoning her. At the end of the day, the entire gang goes to support Christian at which point Aaron's own conscience is pricked and he tells Christian that he won't let him lie for him.
