After the incident, Cash (Nicholas Cartwright) is gradually readjusting to life in the Bay, but his new outlook hasn’t gone unnoticed.
Felicity (Jacqui Purvis) and Rose (Kirsty Marillier) have both expressed concern about his behaviour, especially when he rough-housed a criminal during his first arrest after returning to the job and the man complained that he had been hurt.
Eden (Stephanie Panozzo) also catches wind of the new Cash and gets a taste of her ex-new boyfriend’s outlook on life in addition to Rose and Felicity. Cash makes it quite clear that he is not there to hang around and chat when he arrives at the hospital to speak with Remi (Adam Rowland) about the assault. Eden makes the decision to investigate Cash’s recent change in attitude.
Later, she makes a peace offering of pizza to the police station and arrives there determined to question her companion. Cash is honest about everything that has gone wrong in his life, including getting shot, shooting someone, and experiencing heartbreak.
Why should he continue to play the nice guy? Then Cash asks Eden why they were never able to get along. Cash wanted something serious, according to Eden, and she doesn’t do serious.
Eden is left wondering what she can do to support Cash at this difficult time, and she receives the answer when Felicity asks her to check on him a few days later when she is incarcerated in court due to her involvement in a bikie case with Nikau and Tane. Cash is grumpy when Eden arrives, but after she persists, Cash reluctantly agrees to a night out.
The two enjoy a night of drinking and reminiscing together. When they reach home, the atmosphere gets heated and they keep staring into each other’s eyes.
The old spark is still evident, and it doesn’t take long for them to start talking about going to bed together.
Will they regret the previous night when they wake up, or may this be the beginning of a new relationship?
