After being found trying to carve an explanation out of Sahira's false confession, Henrik is eventually persuaded to speak to Abs and spots him leaving Darwin.

After spending the previous night drinking to get his head around the news of Ange's pregnancy and her consideration of a termination, Josh is informed by Ange that she wants to keep the baby, and he is given the choice of either helping her raise the baby or leaving Ange to be a single mother while he continues to enjoy his youth. Josh believes that he is up for being a father, and he tells Ange that he wants to take care of her and the baby. At the fundraising event in the evening, Ange tells Josh that she can see the carer in him and does not seem him as a "shallow kid", and Josh claims that he cannot see a future without her and has enough love for her and their baby. Josh accompanies Ange to radiology for an ultrasound; to their shock, it shows that they are having twins.

Nevertheless, when Dominic is summoned to make his speech, he abandons his original lines and instead uses the opportunity to honour Carole. Outside, Carole thanks Dominic for his kind words, but she subsequently collapses. Dominic takes Carole to the operating theatre on Keller and tells the team about her dementia, but he is furious to discover that they are already aware. After the surgery, Sacha informs Dominic that he had to remove some infected tissue from Carole's arm, meaning that she may have motor function issues going forward, and he explains that it was Carole's decision to keep him in the dark. Dominic insists that Sacha tell him everything about Carole's condition from now on, but Sacha is forced to respect patient confidentiality. Once Carole wakes up, she tells Dominic that they can prepare for her death and face it together, but Dominic vows to get her better.
