The Annual Miss Whyhope pageant is in full swing and Meryl's doing everything she can to make sure Hayley takes home the crown. But as the new principal, Charlie's in charge, and she's decided to implement a few modern changes to the traditional events. Instead of tea parties and float parades, the contestants now face barrel runs and skeet shooting. Meryl's not pleased by Charlie's approach — Hayley's been preparing for the competition for years.

Meanwhile, Ajax has been left in charge of wedding preparations, and he's conflicted when Hugh tells him he's too young to get married. His cold feet aren't helped by a sudden realisation — might he have feelings for another girl in the pageant?

Back at the hospital, things are heating up between Hugh and Penny as they make plans to go on a proper date. But it's not going to be as easy as they thought, and Hugh first has to deal with an emergency call to a woman's house — one of her kids is having an asthma attack. They're finally about to go on their date when Penny remembers Hugh's fortnightly drug test, and everything is put on hold when it comes back positive.

Ajax has decided he can't marry Hayley if he has feelings for another girl, and convinced he's doing the right thing, he tells her and they break up. Hugh's shocked — he never meant for them to break up, he just wanted to stop the wedding. And that's not his only problem — he can't work out why the drug test came back positive. Eventually both he and Penny put it together — the woman's house used to be a meth lab, and the exposure has caused both the kid's asthma attack and Hugh's positive test. He and Penny agree to go on a replacement date, but the damage has already been done. Hugh's convinced that she'll always see him as the bad guy — and maybe she's right.
