Reluctantly, Heston agrees to visit Curtis’s girlfriend – he’s always been wary of mental health issues and never more so than now. Laverne soon susses that Heston’s a doctor and locks herself in the bedroom. Heston manages to get her to open the door and she admits that she has stopped taking medication for her bipolar as she’s worried it will hurt her baby.
Laverne is about to accept Heston’s hand when she spots Curtis greeting the mental health team as they arrive in the street below. She turns on Heston, but he confesses that Curtis really must care for her otherwise he would never have asked Howard for help.
Convinced, Laverne allows Heston to lead her out to meet Curtis and the team. Heston tells them that Laverne’s consented to go to hospital to have her medication assessed. Heston leaves the flat with his confidence renewed.
