Having heard Tara’s screaming, Alf bursts into the gym closely followed by Tara’s dad Gordon, and before Lucas can protest his innocence, Tara tells them that Lucas set her up to try to make her look like she’s lied about Kim.
Lucas tells Gordon and Alf about Tara scratching herself and burning the DNA evidence, but Gordon’s only interested is in getting Tara to hospital to be checked out.
Fitzgerald takes Lucas in for questioning, while Rachel is shocked to learn that Tara’s up to her old tricks, and confronts her, telling her that the tests will show the skin under her nails is her own, not Lucas’s – proving her to be a liar.
Tara freaks out and runs off – Rachel fears she’s done a runner. The next day the tests come back showing the skin is Tara’s own. Lucas is off the hook, but there’s still no sign of Tara.
Later, Rachel spots her on the cliff edge, and worried she’s going to jump, goes to talk her down. Tara moves away from the cliff and admits she’s been lying to get her dad’s attention. Rachel is thrilled Kim’s ordeal is finally over.
