Everyone is seriously concerned about Kelly. While Marty is still grieving the loss of the baby, Kelly is punishing herself physically and mentally and fast losing control.

Further details

Marty's intervention is futile and Kelly ends up in a critical state. Across the bar, eyeing newly arrived Ruby, Karen and Dom get into a debate about the sexual and personal morals of young women today. Karen champions empowerment, but Dom's assessment of the female nature unsettles her.

Karen shocks herself by agreeing to the terms of a bet that involves Dom bedding Ruby and potentially Karen too. And Avril becomes concerned when she clocks her colleague Calum dispensing incorrect medication at the pharmacy.
