This is the whole set of 11 significant events.

To confront Kirby about her covert meetings with music manager Forrest Duke, Lyrik called a band gathering.
Kirby is honest and forthright with them, expressing that she is no longer happy in Lyrik and that she has been battling for some time.
Kirby is commended by Justin for pursuing her aspirations, but Remi wonders if the danger is worthwhile. Kirby eventually finds her questions to be too much to handle and leaves to go surfing to think about her future.
- Remi desires that Kirby remain
Remi makes a pathetic attempt to persuade Kirby to stay in the band while Theo panics at the thought of Kirby going solo.

Forrest’s offer has Kirby quite tempted, and Mackenzie, who is encouraging, is all for it, saying Kirby deserves this chance.
- Kirby leaves the group
Remi tries to remind Lyrik of their modest beginnings after realising they are about to lose Kirby. All too little, too late, though, as Kirby declares she’s going it alone. Her choice has devastated Justin, but Leah believes Lyrik can continue with his help.
Afterwards, Eden loses her cool and begins throwing Kirby’s clothes onto the street while Justin meets with the band to talk about their future as a trio.
She eventually settles down and she and Remi decide how they’re going to proceed without Kirby.
Felicity takes a courageous stance.
After Felicity’s latest attack, Tane, Cash, and Felicity are resolved to defend the ladies of Summer Bay.
They go to work on their objective; Tane registers as a self-defense instructor, and Felicity establishes a codeword system at Salt for anyone who feels unsafe.
Additionally, they distribute flyers at the surf club, but the lack of enthusiasm from locals annoys them. When Felicity leaps up on a table and cries out that she was sexually abused, people start to pay attention. However, Felicity feels exposed and uneasy after her daring public display.
- Mac backs Felicity’s endeavours
Tane praises Felicity for her bravery and finds it admirable that she put herself in danger for the sake of women’s safety.

- Alf awaits the results of his hearing test.
After a recent hearing test, Alf is anxiously anticipating the findings and gets upset when Bree says he probably needs to get fitted for hearing aids.
In the hopes that Alf may change his mind, Marilyn helps Bree schedule his specialist visits.
Justin is told by Alf that he is happy that they have addressed his hearing loss, suggesting that their persistence has paid off. Alf acknowledges that he’s anxious about receiving his test results in time to see Roo, but Bree works her magic and expedites his next appointment.

Irene gives John a hard time before giving him the house keys. However, Harper begins acting strangely behind closed doors. What does she do?
- Cash experiences a flashback
John makes the decision to monitor Harper and notices that she seems uncomfortable among cops. This makes him quite certain that Irene has invited an inappropriate person to stay with her.

Harper begs Cash for a private conversation while John is made to eat humble pie.
