After an awkward run-in with his ex Savi’s boyfriend Dom, Harry is ready to leave his Los Angeles life behind him. He informs his business partner Joss that he’s going to move back home to Australia. While home for a family reunion, he bumped into an old friend that was selling his beach shack restaurant and offered it to Harry.

3. Savi Wants to Have a Baby
Savi has an epiphany while dining on pizza and beer with her new bud Zack. She wants to have a baby, like as soon as possible. When she tells Dom, he’s less than enthused about the whole thing. Savi wonders why since he was on board the last time she got pregnant, but that time it just happened and he had to okay with it.
His plan that he thought of the first time they worked a case included them moving into their own place, getting married, going on an extravagant trip they couldn’t do with kids, and then coming home to start a family.
Savi tells him later that she had other plans too before her accident, but plans have a way of changing. Dom thinks it over and gets on board. To celebrate, he goes to buy his girlfriend earrings for the occassion, but when he steps outside the jewelry store he makes a shocking discovery.
4. April Tries to Make Friends With Lucy’s Friend’s Parents
April’s daughter Lucy comes home with a Gucci bag from that she got while at her friend Peyton’s house. Peyton’s mother Samantha was cleaning out her closet and gave the small purse to Lucy. April doesn’t think Lucy should have such an expensive bag and takes it back to Samantha.
Samantha understands and then invites Lucy and her boyfriend Daniel over for dinner. Daniel can’t make it (spending one more day “in Vermont”), so Samantha decides to make it a girls night. She tells her husband Steven, who April accidentally went on a date with, to go play poker. He comes home early though, and tries to come on to April again. April won’t have it and storms out of the house.
The next day Samantha stops by the shop and tells April that she and her husband have an open marriage. April is taken aback at her candidness, and Samantha’s hurt by the way April looks at her upon hearing the news. She takes her frustrations out by saying it’s April daughter Lucy’s who at their house five nights a week and not the other way around.
Lucy learns that Peyton isn’t the nice girl she thought she was. Peyton made April’s daughter write a mean poem about their classmate Patty (rhymes with “fatty”) and Lucy feels awful. April tells her that she doesn’t have to stop being friends with Patty, but she needs to learn how to pick the friends she wants for life. April does make Lucy go call Patty and apologize.
Samantha does a little apologizes of her own, bringing April flowers to say sorry for her outburst yesterday. She then admits she went over to check out artwork at Daniel’s loft and saw a mystery red-headed woman hovering around the artist like they were more than friends.
5. Savi Plans to Confess to Dom About Her Friendship with Zack
Joss finally prods her older sister to come clean to boyfriend Dom about her crash buddy Zack. Savi never thought her friendship with Zack would last this long, but Joss says she needs to trust that Dom will think it’s okay.
