When Gerry was released, he came to the village and continued his friendship with Lachlan.

However after Lachlan confessed to Gerry that he caused the crash that killed his grandfather Lawrence, mother Chrissie and left his aunt Rebecca with a brain injury, Gerry kept joking about Lachlan’s secret.
