While Xanthe Canning is having an extra biology study session with teacher Elly Conway, the student suddenly gets another seizure in her arm. But when Xanthe looks in her bag for the pain medication she’s been taking since the hit-and-run horror that landed her in hospital, she discovers it is missing.
Unaware it was Aaron Brennan who swiped the medication after developing an addiction to painkillers when he injured his back, Xanthe asks Aaron’s doctor hubby David for another prescription. But she’s in for a surprise when David produces her missing pills, claiming they fell out of her bag and he forgot to return them.
Curious about David’s shifty behaviour, Xanthe is further confused when she discovers the unused prescription David wrote out to get Aaron some more painkillers. She jumps to the wrong conclusion that David is the one with the addiction! Will Xanthe confront David about his “problem”?

Meanwhile, Chloe Brennan’s paid-escort service is secretly up and running again. But what will Chloe do when she’s approached by a mum who wants Chloe to “deflower” her son for his 21st birthday! Will Chloe take the money and accept it’s all part of the service?
