for a strange woman on the golf course. Steve
almost hits a horse (Lightning) that wanders
across the road. She discovers a 15-year-old girl
(Lynette Copper) has been single-handedly running
the farm and living in squalor after the farm
manager, Joe Phelps, goes off on a bender. Shirl
comes back from her mother's and is hospitalized
with pneumonia. Harry hits himself on the head
with a golf ball and finds out at the hospital
that the strange woman is the new sister -- Kate
Lynette's sister, Rowie, arrives
after breaking out of a juvenile facility.
Shirley is stressed out over her mother. Luke
gets after Frank for contributing to the stress
and Frank offers to bring his mother-in-law down
to live with them. Shirl's mom has other ideas.
Harry milks his visit as a patient for all it's
worth. Rowie wants to run away with Lynette.
Lynette goes to round up cattle and Lightning is
spooked by a snake, throwing her. She damages one
of her kidneys and the other is shriveled and
Rowie offers one of her kidneys, even though it
means she has to turn herself in. Tiger Kelly
gets out of jail and is mad at Cookie because
Cookie's fumigating caused the termites to
emigrate to Tiger's mother-in-law's house. He
terrorizes them and then drives a truck through
Bob's house, getting arrested again in the
process. Homeless, Bob and Cookie decide to rent
Esme's empty house. Harry starts avoiding Steve
and decides he'll have to move out of her farm.
Kate meets Joe Phelps, who finally returns. She
insists on getting Matt to look at Lightning and
when Joe finds out what it will cost to fix the
broken bone, he decides to shoot Lightning. Kate
gives him the cost of a box of bullets and takes
possession of the horse, giving Matt a cheque for
the cost of treatment. Harry talks to Terence and
ends up moving into Camelot. Steve offers Kate
the empty room at the farm.
