st Pancras to Ebbsfleet returning a different day

Looking for a recommendation for the following:

Tomororw/today (depending whether you've gone to bed yet) sat 5th may stp-ebd mid afternoon
Sunday 6th may morning ebd-stp

I can see a fare for the above of £16.00 'weekender' but unsure whether this allows returning on a different day. A single appears to be £14.80.

As there appears to be no SVR can anyone suggest a suitable SVR that is cheaper than two of the above singles? I see stevenage-ebbsfleet £25.90 for example.

If you know of a good ticket that you wish to keep hush about, please PM me in confidence. Thanks
