The bat­tle be­gins

Lily has to en­dure an awk­ward run-in with Jack to make ca­reer-best tV while Pete is in cri­sis

Soap World - - PRIMETIME -

Could this be an op­por­tu­nity for the pair to fi­nally deal with what went wrong?

Work has been Lily’s salvation since her heart­break­ing split with Jack but her at­tempt to pro­duce the best work of her ca­reer brings them face to face. Mean­while Pete is strug­gling to come to terms with Mered­ith’s de­ci­sion to move over­seas with their daugh­ter when a pro­fes­sional cri­sis erupts.

Be­ing dumped at the al­tar is not an easy thing to get over but Lily (Jes­sica Marais) is do­ing her best, putting her fo­cus into her job. It’s the one area of Lily’s life that she al­ways suc­ceeds in and knows how to do well — ro­mance, on the other hand, seems to be her Achilles heel.

So with the Lo­gie Awards com­ing up Lily has sug­gested that The Break­fast Bar do an af­ter-show. There’s ex­cite­ment in the air with the idea a hit among the team and there’s a sense that this could be the best tele­vi­sion they’ve ever put to air.

But be­ing the chaotic, un­pre­dictable, ego-driven world of break­fast tele­vi­sion there is also plenty of po­ten­tial for the spe­cial edi­tion to be an ab­so­lute dis­as­ter. Threat­en­ing to un­ravel the pro­duc­tion is an in­evitable re­union with Jack (Rob Collins) who just hap­pens to be a Gold Lo­gie nom­i­nee.

Lily would likely be ner­vous about see­ing Jack again af­ter all that has hap­pened be­tween them. They re­ally haven’t dealt with what led to their break-up. Could this be an op­por­tu­nity for the pair to fi­nally deal with what went wrong? Or will their con­fronta­tion get ugly on one of the most im­por­tant days of Lily’s ca­reer?

Mean­while, her best friend Pete (Ian Mead­ows) is hav­ing a tough time deal­ing with Mered­ith’s (Leah Van­den­berg) plan to take their daugh­ter Man­isha to Lon­don with her. As if los­ing your lit­tle girl isn’t enough, Pete is also fac­ing the prospect of his mu­sic show be­ing axed due to pla­gia­rism al­le­ga­tions.

The stress of it all is im­pact­ing Pete’s re­la­tion­ships and there’s po­ten­tial that his be­hav­iour will push new girl­friend Gil­lian (Natalie Bass­ingth­waighte) away. What Pete needs right now is the sup­port of those he’s clos­est to but his frus­tra­tion threat­ens to get the bet­ter of him. Can Pete pull him­self to­gether be­fore he loses ev­ery­thing?
