Julian stitches her face, making Ash feel undermined. After both being treated, Robbie and Sharon make up. Mrs Wallace comes in believing her ‘baby’ is ill – and has no head. She is a regular, who Tony Walker comes to visit – as her ‘baby’ is infact a dead fish. She had a miscarriage earlier in her life, which caused her behaviour. Template:Series 5
