Roo refuses to go back over Kieran and seeks help from Irene, who is willing to share some insight into an alcoholic’s mind.

Alf is hesitant to contact the police, who announce that Kieran’s arrest warrant is still pending. Unfortunately, the police have not managed to get Kieran in for questioning, since he’s already escaped from Summer Bay.

Mia maintains that it was better for Chloe to get a clean break and to assume that Ari had nothing else to do with them. But now Chloe tries to make up for lost time and demands that he remains in the Bay. This forces Mia to remain as well.
