Meanwhile, Tori Morgan (Penny McNamee) and Marilyn Chambers (Emily Symons) get together and try to convince Jasmine Delaney (Sam Frost) to stick around in Summer Bay.

Jasmine begins to realise she did overstep the mark by taking Tori's baby daughter, Grace, without permission - and lying to friend, Marilyn at the same time.
