But little do they know, Kirsha is on a mission to reunite her parents!
Will Kirsha's matchmaking plan work? Or could it be that there is ANOTHER woman in Erinsborough who also has her eye on Shane?
Meanwhile, fashion designer, Amy Greenwood (Jacinta Stapleton) is in hot water now that Chloe Brennan (April Rose Pengilly) has discovered Amy doesn't actually own the staff uniform designs she has pitched to Lassiters.

But when Chloe breaks the news of Amy's deception to hotel manager, Terese Willis (Rebekah Elmaloglou), will Amy suddenly find herself out of a job?
Elsewhere in Erinsborough, Hendrix Greyson (Benny Turland) is in a panic as bad boy Kane Jones (Barry Conrad) continues to hound Hendrix for the money he owes him, after losing at their latest card game.
With the clock ticking, things take a sinister turn for Hendrix when Kane sends him a frightening warning...
Kane wants the money he is owed... OR ELSE!
