Hugh tries to cancel the farm sale when he learns the identity of the new owner. Matt is torn between his feelings for Charlie and April. Meryl uncovers major corruption in the local council.

The Knight family’s fortunes go from bad to worse as Meryl (Tina Bursill) discovers that the mysterious buyer of the farm is actually Rod Eagle (Patrick Wilson).

Meryl confronts Hugh (Rodger Corser), who insists he didn’t know it was Rod. He’s convinced it doesn’t matter anyway — the farm has been sold and there’s nothing they can do about it. But Meryl’s not ready to give up, and she’s determined to find out why Rod paid so much for the property. When she gets wind of insider trading, she blackmails Rod and forces him to pull out of the sale.

All is going well for Matt (Ryan Johnson) and April (Miranda Tapsell), and they start having sex in April’s empty house. But Matt knows April’s on the lookout for a father for her baby, and soon things are moving too quickly for comfort. Penny (Hayley McElhinney) and Raph (Don Hany) are also dating, and Penny’s happy with how things are going between them. But soon Raph’s parenting style comes back into question, and Penny has to decide whether it’s a deal breaker.

Meanwhile, Hugh and Ken (Charles Wu) are in town when they run into a guy who needs their help — his son’s unconscious, and he begs them to come with him. They say they’ll call an ambulance, but there’s no time to argue — this guy’s desperate, panicked and welding a gun. They go with the guy to an abandoned shearing shed, where they soon learn that his son’s been bitten by a snake. The father refuses to take him to hospital — there’s a warrant out for his arrest, and if he takes him in, he’ll never see his son again. They finally agree on Hugh going back to the hospital and collecting the antivenom and bringing it back to the kid, but the child ends up having an allergic reaction, and the father is forced to call an ambulance to save his son.
