Daniel’s struggling without Zara and Joe

Zara and Joe are gone and Daniel’s desperate. He calls her and leaves several messages but to no avail. When he gets to The Mill he learns from Howard that she has requested several months leave and that locum cover will need to be arranged. Daniel’s anguish is clear for all to see and Jimmi’s shocked to hear Zara’s gone.

Jimmi tells Daniel to go home before relaying everything to Cherry. She’s scared that Jimmi might know about her and Daniel but is relieved to learn he doesn’t. At home, Daniel receives a sharp text message from Zara telling him Joe’s fine and that he shouldn’t contact them again.
