Anxious about Smithy’s behaviour, Ruth pops home to find him holding a baby he claims he got for them. Fearful they’ll both get sectioned again, Ruth panics but Smithy assures her Olivia is fine and Ruth realises the baby is his sister. Later, Ruth returns Olivia to Smithy’s mum, Marion, who’s relieved after Smithy had disappeared with her.

Also, Cherry is called to the side of a dying man’s bed and struggles to come to terms with his beliefs, which strongly challenge her own.
