The complete list of 12 major events is provided below.
Marilyn makes an effort to reassure her friends.
Leah advises Marilyn to have her prescription examined by a doctor as she has been acting strangely since Heather’s arrival in the Bay. Marilyn accepts it because she wants to keep the situation’s true nature a secret.
Heather poses as caring for Marilyn, but this just increases doubts about her true motivations. Heather tells a fib, claiming that Roo, not Nikau, informed her of her mental health difficulties when Marilyn inquires how Heather is aware of them.
2. Heather tricks Marilyn by using her wits.
Heather slips in and leaves an empty bottle of wine next to Marilyn as she snoozes on the couch at home. To frighten Marilyn, she also places a photo of her as a baby on her.

3. Marilyn tells Leah a secret.
Marilyn approaches her breaking point after several uncomfortable interactions with Heather, who is still playing games with her, and she decides to confide in Leah. Marilyn tells Leah that she thinks Heather might be her long-lost daughter, and Leah is stunned.
Marilyn remembers the painful account of her affair with a married guy when she was his domestic. Marilyn’s lover and his wife put pressure on her to give up her newborn daughter after the baby was born, and she consented.
Marilyn promises to keep Leah’s information a secret, feeling guilty that she didn’t put up more of a fight at the time.
4. Marilyn is accused of being abused
When Jett contacts John and claims to have gotten a harsh text from Marilyn, John is stunned. The implication is that an adopted child will never be able to hold a candle to a biological one.
When John confronts Marilyn about the text, she claims she had no knowledge of it and that someone must have posed as her.
Marilyn seemed genuinely appalled that John and her friends would think she sent such a foul message, but will she come up and say that she thinks Heather was to blame?
5. Rose learns something surprising.

6. Rose makes a choice.
Xander intrudes by informing Cash about Rose’s compliment as he is having lunch with the Delaney siblings. Cash is surprised to learn that Rose would decline it for his advantage and he doesn’t hesitate to point out that she wasn’t at fault for getting shot.
Rose chooses to accept the award after all, with Cash’s approval. Cash, though, makes it evident that he is still having personal difficulties when he goes back to the Parata home and locks himself in his bedroom.
7. Cash and Rose cross the line
Cash visits Rose at her apartment with a bottle of champagne to celebrate her professional achievement after drowning his sorrows. Still acting strangely, he goes over the line by attempting to kiss Rose.
Cash’s actions astound Rose, who pulls away before begging him to leave.
8. Some good news is delivered to Tane and Nikau.

The good news is that the sentencing will take place in a closed court, which allays the pair’s fears that the gang may send spies to observe their punishment.
9. Kirby and Theo create a PR strategy.
The responsibility of coming up with PR ideas for Lyrik falls to Kirby and Theo. They intend to revive Theo’s 50,000-follower online video channel, which he previously used for prank pranks with Ryder.
Kirby and Theo create a duet and post it online in the hopes that it will increase interest in the band. Theo is unsure whether Eden and Remi will be miffed about being left out, but the choice pays off when a reputable writer contacts him and requests an interview.
10. Without their bandmates, Kirby and Theo make another move.
Because he is in town for another job, the journalist Tully Dixon can only complete the interview in one hour. Kirby and Theo make frantic attempts to contact Remi and Eden, but when they don’t answer, they continue with the interview without them.
When the interview is published, tensions rise inside Lyrik, with a heavy emphasis on Kirby and Theo and a scant mention of Remi and Eden.
When Remi is attacked, 11.
After feeling rejected by Kirby and Theo, Remi begins to doubt his future in Lyrik. However, Bree convinces him otherwise and urges him to stick doing what he loves.
Later, Remi busks in front of the Surf Club but is reprimanded by John for doing so without a permit. Remi and John are having a disagreement when a robber comes in and snatches Remi’s guitar case, which is filled with change.

After noticing Ziggy acting strangely and turning down alcoholic beverages, Mackenzie surmises that she is pregnant.
It makes Ziggy feel better to have someone to talk to, and she tells Mac that she’s conflicted about her future because she’d originally planned to prioritise raising a family above pursuing a professional surfing career.
Finally, Ziggy informs Dean that she has decided to have the baby and that they will do so.
