In-Depth

The family attempt to rebuild their lives in the aftermath of Melissa's death. Strong family bonds ensure that traumatised Ben receives warm support as he takes his first steps back into the work-force. Slowly he learns to smile again, embracing a new-found interest in gardening and a growing friendship with his boss's daughter, Emma, which might hold promise of something more.

And there are further love issues in the Karandonis household with Carbo and Retta choosing to elope, rather than face the wrath of his overbearing mother, Rita, and the comic extravagance of a Karandonis wedding.

Meanwhile Julie and Dave are forced to deal with the consequences for Rachel and Jake of a dangerous accusation flung at him by a drunken woman he encounters on a rugby weekend away. Rachel's feelings for Jake are tested to the limit, especially when her boss throws into the confusing mix the chance of a lifetime to work in New York.

Julie and Dave also wrestle with the unexpected arrival in their lives of new family members, not the least being the release from prison of Dave's father, Tom. Tom's never quite predictable manipulations ultimately force Dave to take a heartbreaking stand, and cause him to initially misjudge the intentions of his half-brother, larrikin pub musician Matt. Julie meanwhile, finds a new best friend in Donna, though their initial exchanges are hilariously unpromising.

Nathan is searching for a new direction in life and his desire to travel forces Julie and Dave to undertake some soul-searching of their own. Meanwhile Ted is also keen to find a greater purpose, mentoring a troubled twelve-year old boy.
