Rather than letting it be swept under the rug, Kate boldly confronts Noah. He throws a tantrum and says she’s so vain, she probably thinks the song is about her. Which it is, of course, but it absolutely must remain a secret. Kate may well believe him, but she’s a professional and thinks she should stop tutoring him with such rumours floating about.
Summer is working on her own miniature History Wall, posting old local news articles. She proudly tells Michael that she’s been sharing stories about students’ families, which makes Michael frown nervously.
Paul and Kyle are formulating a plan, dude. Sort of. Kyle is mostly rambling after a possible pub brawl concussion and Paul is swirling an afternoon Scotch, as per usual. Wait! Paul is smirking. He has something brewing.
Summer talks to Michael about things she shouldn’t – Tash. She’s been talking to Summer about her mum and Ms Hoyland is now feigning some degree of concern that is actually disguised nosiness. “I think she needs to know,” she says, and Michael boots her out of his office. “Leave, Summer.” Tash reassures him though, she’s happy with it just being the two of them.
Noah takes things a step further with Kate and tells her his song is about Summer, not her. Kate reconsiders, she’ll keep tutoring Noah, even though he’s sort of a creepy stalker. She takes it one step further and plants some slightly mean seeds of doubt in Sophie’s mind – Noah has a crush on “some Year 12 girl”, and not her. Why, Kate? Poor Soph takes her heartache and disillusion out on her lyrics book.
In the Simmons and Colbert office, Paul has a surprise phone call for Toad. “Oh Toadie, anyone would think you didn’t trust me!” Smug Robinson is smug.
Summer has well and truly crossed the line this time. Michael looks like he’s headed for a stroke. “You’re just a teenager playing at being a journalist … you have no respect for anyone but yourself!” He is viciously hurling words at her face. She cries, but that’s probably not going to fix it, is it Summer?
