Matt and Charlie's marriage is tested when they disagree over Ivy's future. Hughs plan to leave Whyhope is delayed when he is accused of malpractice. Ajax and Meryl devise a bizarre plan to save the farm from bankruptcy.

Ivy has been caught trespassing by Darren and it’s going to cost Matt and Charlie a hefty fine. But things get more complicated when Darren explains that the fine will mean an appearance in court — with Ivy’s legal guardians. And since she’s technically living in their home, Matt and Charlie now have a decision to make: become Ivy’s legal foster parents or Darren will have her taken into the care of DOCS. What starts off as a simple decision rapidly becomes complicated, and Charlie’s decision never to have children of her own is brought to a head, ending with the pair deciding to break up.

Hugh has promised Penny he’ll leave Whyhope, but he’s quickly learning that it’s a hard promise to keep. No one in Sydney will hire him until his investigation is completed, but when the investigator arrives they immediately get off on the wrong foot. And that’s not all that needs to be cleared up before he can leave town, as Hugh is forced to tell his family that it’s time to sell the farm.

Meanwhile, Ajax is consumed with a problem of his own — it’s been announced that the Whyhope Cemetery is being replaced by a football field, and all the graves are going to be moved. Ajax is outraged and plans to picket against it — until he has an idea. If they move the cemetery to Arcadia, they take in the profits of running it. He convinces Meryl to come on board, and she gets Hugh’s signature on the forms. Hugh’s furious when he finds out exactly what he signed, making him only more determined to go ahead and sell the farm.
