VJ's plan to take Luc to Cyprus rocks Leah to her core. She delivers a reality check – overnight he'd become a single father in a foreign country, so is he really ready to change his life forever? But the decision feels right for VJ, despite everyone's concerns. He isn't prepared to risk losing Luc to Mick and gives Ash his word that she'll never lose her connection to him.

With everyone on board, it's business as usual, so Mick is kept in the dark. But Mick's suspicious when he sees Irene having a private word to Roo and Ryder, and she fails to convince him that he's got the wrong end of the stick. He reports Ash and Tori's intention to do a runner, but the police can't press charges when no incident has occurred.

VJ's family and friends have a small farewell dinner for him. As they reminisce, Alf makes a heartwarming speech about VJ's strong character. But Leah can't take any more and leaves the room, devastated that she's losing her son. VJ goes after her and she gives him his dad's wedding ring. VJ thanks Leah for everything.

As VJ and Luc prepare to leave the next morning, word gets to them that Mick's lawyer has applied for an injunction to stop Luc leaving the country, which will be approved shortly. Fortunately, Alf has an idea. Irene meets Mick and tells him that he'll never get custody, as Alf, Leah and Ash see VJ and Luc off on a seaplane safely.

When Irene spots the aircraft in the sky, she leaves Mick and tears begin to flow as her granddaughter's departure sinks in. Back at the Pier, Leah is inconsolable, as Ash fights to keep it together himself now that his niece is gone.

Meanwhile, Justin tells Willow that Boyd has given them 24 hours to come up with the money she owes. He's worried, but Willow's got a plan. Later, Willow reveals that she's agreed to do another dodgy job for Boyd to buy herself more time. Justin has a better idea and offers to buy her car. But the car means more than anything to Willow and she can't give it up. Seeing he's hit a nerve, Justin backs off, but he wants her to sleep on it before completely ruling it out. Surely Willow's not crazy enough to reject Justin's help?

Elsewhere, Tori supports Ash as he comes to terms with letting go of Luc, but he's also worried about how the situation is affecting her. Selflessly, Tori thinks it's more important he focus on Luc. When their quiet dinner ends with Mick at the police station, the pressure on Tori starts to take over. When she gets home she allows herself to let it all out, breaking down in Justin's arms.
