Meg goes to the cottage for drinks with Lloyd Munro.  She tells Lloyd that there was a television programme she wanted to see, and she picks up the evening addition of the paper to look for the television pages.  Where the television page is someone has cut something out, and Lloyd says it must have been Barbara Brady.  Meg fetches her copy of the paper from her car and opens it to the page which is missing in Lloyd's copy.  "Ah. It's the local murder," says Meg.  Lloyd Munro looks worriedly at the paper over Meg's shoulder.
Later, Lloyd and Meg hear a car pull up in the driveway, and Barbara Brady and John Farnham come into the cottage.  John Farnham asks Lloyd if he has the newspaper because he would like to catch up on the news of the local murder.  John finds the page missing and Barbara tells him that she cut out a recipe.   Lloyd looks at Meg.

Barbara Brady tells John Farnham that she heard something about his recent past, something about an oriental girl.  "She had more to do with David Hunter than me," John Farnham tells her.  Before leaving the cottage, John Farnham asks Barbara Brady if he could take her out again.  Barbara Brady tells him that she is going to have dinner with David Hunter because he has wetted her apetite about the oriental girl.
Sharon Metcalfe goes to Geoffrey Foster's home and is greeted at the door by Becky Foster.  Becky asks Sharon if she was the one involved in the accident, and Sharon says yes.  "Oh poor you.  It must have been awful," says Becky Foster.  Geoffrey Foster arrives home and tells Sharon that he would have liked to have spoken to Becky before she arrived so that he could explain who Sharon is.  Sharon says Becky knows and was alright about it.
Lloyd Munro asks Meg if she thought Barbara Brady's behaviour was strange.  Meg says Barbara obviously didn''t enjoy her evening out with John Farnham.  Lloyd says it's the cutting about the murder that Barbara Brady cut out of the newspaper, and he can't get it out of his mind.  He says she lied when she said it was a recipe she cut out.
In the office, David asks Meg for the newspaper and says he wants to read about the local murder.  David leafs through the pages.  "It's on the back of the tv page," Meg tells him.  "No," says David.  "Look," he says and shows Meg the paper.

After dinner Lloyd Munro suggests a brandy but David says he'll have his later.  "I'm going to help with the washing up," says David.  "there's no need," Barbara Brady tells him.  "After such a marvellous meal the least I can do is help the cook with the washing up," says David.  He and Barbara Brady go into the kitchen.  Meg notices the worried look on Lloyd's face.  She says John Farnham bores Barbara Brady and Lloyd doesn't like it, and David amuses her and he stilll doesn't like it.  Meg tells Lloyd that Barbara did cut out a recipe from the newspaper, and she shows Lloyd the cutting.  She says the paper with the recipe was the early edition and the one with the murder was the late edition.
