Elsewhere, Charlie has come to the conclusion that Roman was cheating on her with his ex-wife. She confronts Natalie, who denies it, but that doesn’t stop Charlie from accusing her of putting a wedge between her and Roman.
Jai worries about Melody who has retreated back into her shell. Miles suggests Melody speak to her counsellor, but she doesn’t see the point.

But things don’t go according to plan when Melody makes a fool of herself at the Surf club, arriving in short, tight clothes and too much make-up.
But when Matthew wolf-whistles at her, it’s exactly the self-esteem boost Melody needs. He suggests they go somewhere quiet, and back at her place, Matthew proposes they go up to her room. It’s all a bit much for Melody, but she leads the way upstairs anyway.
