Meanwhile, Theo (Matt Evans) has been on tenterhooks waiting for his court hearing, and once the day finally arrives he learns that not only is he doing community service, he’s got a criminal conviction. Full of fury, he confronts Alf (Ray Meagher) inside the Diner – he knows exactly why Alf did this, it was to deal with his own guilt over dropping the ball with his grandson.
