Three Sisters

 Jaz_Mcleod

Jaz McLeod steps off a bus in Gungellan looking every inch a fashion plate. As she struggles to gather up her luggage she meets Ben, a handsome larrikin on the same bus. Sparks fly as he tries to free her clothes which are caught in the cargo hold. He embarrasses her, and they part ways hoping they won’t see each other again. Back at Drovers, Jaz’s return seems to reawaken old tensions amongst the McLeod sisters. Grace and Jaz are so different — the rebel and the princess — and they have always clashed, leaving Regan stuck in the role of peacemaker. Stevie, meanwhile, is glad to see Jaz — she tells her their old tensions are like water under a bridge. Jaz is sad over her loss, Alex did a lot for her. Jaz volunteers to help out around the farm, but when she goes to get some jeans she discovers she’s picked up the wrong bag at the bus stop. After scamming a truck driver for a ride, and helping Marcus out of a bog, we discover Ben is Stevie’s cousin. The three sisters, mean while, get to know each other again.  Jaz and Grace are still very competitive with one another. Grace leaves Jaz to muster a small herd of cattle, fully expecting her to fail, but this backfires on Grace when Jaz inadvertently mixes some of the cows with cattle from Killarney.

Damned

As Grace, Tayler and Dan mark out a field for the next day’s charity soccer match, Stevie drives up and announces the government’s plans to dam the Ramsay River. It will rob Drovers of most of its water supply. Grace heads into the study to ring affected landholders and almost walks in on a desperate phone call Jaz is having with a friend in Italy, talking about a court hearing affecting her showjumping career. Jaz goes with Grace to Selkirk’s to arrange a meeting and there she meets Frank, whose opinion about the dam is shot down by Jim. Farmers from East Nanjemup (who have the most to gain from the dam), including big-wig Terri Barker, attend the meeting, where the charity soccer match is turned into a protest rally. But Terri reckons the dam’s good for the east. She takes some convincing to see how bad it will be for the rest of the district. Softening, she and the others consider attending the protest match. Grace volunteers Olympic-hopeful Jaz to be the face of the anti-dam campaign. Jaz tries to get out of it, but is forced into a corner. Terri later questions Jaz as to why she’s not training in Europe, and Jaz covers — her horse is injured. But the next day, Terri visits Jaz and tries to blackmail her into supporting the dam and making Drover’s accept the government’s compensation — she’s made some inquiries and knows about a scandal rocking Jaz’s career.

Mother Love

Tayler’s and Patrick’s happy domesticity is disrupted when Tayler’s mother, Jane, returns. Jane wants to set the record straight with her daughter, but Tayler is wary, owing to Jane’s previous appearance around her 18th birthday. Now, Jane wants to be up front with Tayler, to explain why she left, and why she stayed away for 16 years without so much as a word. wants a settled home, but she’s pretty sure she can only get this by leaving her beloved father to live with her mother. She turns to Tayler for help, but Tayler, too blinded by the anger she feels towards her own mother, advises Lily to forget it. Better one parent who truly loves you, than to go chasing after the one who abandoned you. Meanwhile, Xander has not smiled yet, and it’s worrying Stevie immensely. When Xander does smile, first, for Moira, and then for everyone in the house except Stevie, the Drovers women decide to keep it a secret.
