Heartbreak High Episode 21
Southgate is still holding the reigns at Hartley and still taking big steps towards improving Hartley's image. He bans roller blading in an attempt to rid Hartley of "designer hooliganism" but finds himself in the ultimate cat and mouse game with a high-velocity phantom roller blader. The phantom, infamous due to press reports of bag snatching and general yahooing, has taken to ripping around Hartley's corridors and yards and evading everyone including Southgate. Initially Southgate is merely determined to catch the offender but as the phantom becomes more risque, he becomes obsessive.
Meanwhile, Con has gone underground with his new team of roller bladers who he is entering in a competition. Southgate lifts the ban to bring these guys, Rivers, Steve and Katerina out into the school yard for a trial run. As Southgate had anticipated, the phantom appears and Southgate is ready for him. Bolton is unmasked. Southgate learns that Bolton, had been dropped from Con's team. Although an exceptional blader he can't perform under pressure, it is his lack of self esteem and his frustration led him to do his stuff anonymously. The story pushes the right button in Southgate who arranges for the team to compete complete with Bolton unmasked.
Tension between members of the gang is still palpable. Nick and Katerina have a stand off over Katerina's involvement with Rivers and her chumminess with Steve during this tricky time. Jodie, icy towards Nick, needs a friend in Con which makes Nick jealous and his concern puts Danielle on edge. There is a sense that bad feelings aren't going to go away very quickly.
