Julian's mother tells him that his dog, who's as old as he is, is nearing the end of his life, and that the animal ought to be put down. Banksie plans to take his brother's demolition-derby car for a drive around an old factory with Jackie and Jean-Paul. Sarah shows an interest too - mainly because she's keen on the French lad. Banksie drives his brother's car around the factory - but Jean-Paul is unimpressed, and Sarah doesn't get the thrill she was promised. Jean-Paul gets prepared to have a go, but Jackie refuses to get back in the car. Back at school, Fay comes across Julian, intending to dump him. He breaks down though, before she can say anything, telling her about his dog being put down, but he then guesses that she was waiting for Jean Paul. At the deserted factory, Jean Paul's driving becomes reckless, and to make matters worth, Banksie's brother Phil turns up. Finally, the car goes out of control, and turns over... Sarah ends up in hospital, but Jean-Paul escapes unharmed. ... Written by Geffers
