Matilda is in tears after seeing Ric and Viv on the beach together, but Cassie tells her the only way to know what really happened is to ask Ric. Meanwhile, Ric confides to Drew that he’s sick of all this drama over nothing, and says that at least Viv actually cares about what he’s doing. After some thought, Matilda tells Ric he needs to have a serious think about whether he still wants to be with her.
Later, the couple look to be back on track when Ric presents Matilda with the vouchers for the Sands resort that Viv gave him.

Later, a calmer Matilda tells Ric she’s convinced Viv is trying to undermine their relationship.
