On the upcoming episode of Home and Away in the UK, Cash arranges a meeting between Felicity and Gary, the foster father of the children, but Flick is not at all pleased to see him.
An important person in Flick’s life who has not yet been invited to the forthcoming wedding of Tane (Ethan Browne) and Felicity (Jacqui Purvis) is her foster father, Gary Morrow (Peter Phelps).
Cash (Nicholas Cartwright), who was just 12 years old, found his father Anthony’s death on the family property after he committed himself. The siblings had already lost their mother.
Close friends of the family, Gary and his late wife Katherine welcomed Cash and Felicity into their house after their horrible ordeal. But despite their seeming good intentions and Cash’s attempts to convince Flick, Gary hasn’t been invited to the wedding.
The subject comes up in conversation between Cash and John (Shane Withington), with John suggesting that Cash personally invite Gary to the bay so that Flick is compelled to exorcise any demons she may be harbouring there.
Knowing Flick’s past, it’s a hazardous move, but Cash decides it’s worth a try if Gary has any chance of watching his foster daughter go down the aisle.
Cash contacts Gary, but he has another favour to ask as well.
Gary informs Cash later in the week that he would be arriving in Summer Bay the following day. The news is welcomed by Irene (Lynne McGranger) and Rose (Kirsty Marillier), but Cash admits he’s anxious because he hasn’t told Flick!
The following morning at breakfast, Cash tries once more to convince Flick that Gary was a significant part of her life, but she immediately ends the conversation.
Gary arrives in his automobile towing Anthony’s ute as Cash exits the building.
Cash becomes anxious as he reminds Gary that they had planned to meet at the surf club. He doesn’t want Flick to see their father’s old ute because it’s a surprise for the wedding, but Gary quickly realises that it’s not the only problem.
“Does your sister not know that I’m down here?”
Gary is upset that Flick’s position hasn’t changed after travelling for six hours under the impression that everything had been resolved. Cash is confident that there is still hope… However, they must remove the ute from the area first.
Gary is presented to Irene, Marilyn (Emily Symons), and Roo (Georgie Parker) at the diner by Cash, who extends a cordial welcome to him.
While having a drink with the other person, Cash discusses his desire for Gary and Flick to communicate and work out their differences as well as his plan to restore their father’s ute.
Gary points out to Cash how quickly Flick left the house when she could, and Cash explains that it was because of her refusal to acknowledge the manner in which their father died. Flick might be able to let go of her hatred for Gary now that she has accepted his suicide.
Gary is willing to speak with Flick, but only after she gives her permission. Cash, though, does not believe that will occur.
Gary will have to take the initiative, and Cash is urging him to do it urgently so that Flick won’t ever regret Gary missing her wedding.
After receiving a warm greeting from Alf (Ray Meagher), the main guy, it appears that Gary is well-known around the harbour. But when Cash drives Gary home, it’s time to face the consequences.
Flick appears as though she’s seen a ghost when she returns and runs into Gary.
Why is he in this place? Flick turns to Cash and inquires.
Soon after leaving, Tane runs into Gary and is startled to find a stranger leaving his home. Gary introduces himself and quips that his and Flick’s reunion went about as well as could be anticipated, assuming Tane has heard of their past.
He snidely observes, “It’s not the first time Felicity has told me to go to hell… and it probably won’t be the last either.
As she berates him for ambushing her with Gary inside, Flick is giving Cash the full power of her rage.
I’ve told you how I feel about him; why don’t you ever pay attention to what I have to say?
Tane enters throughout the commotion and offers that the siblings require some distance without taking a side.
As Cash leaves the house, he concurs, and Tane reassures a scared Flick.
Is it impossible for Cash to bring Gary and Flick back together in time for the wedding?
