Toadie is told the firm is letting him go but with a very generous settlement. Sonya’s pleased that this will allow them breathing space to find another job but Toadie suspects he’s being bought. He refuses the settlement and lays down his terms – either they give him his job back or he takes them to court for unfair dismissal.

Sonya’s not pleased that he’s risked everything without consulting her. It’s a tense wait but Charlotte reports back. Simmons and Colbert would prefer to have Toadie with them than against them. Toadie’s back with the firm.

Shocked to discover that Emilia moonlights as a nude model, Lucas has to admit to her he’s not comfortable with it. His conservatism is proof to Emilia that there is no real connection between them. This feeling is emphasised when Michael offers her the understanding that Lucas can’t. Emilia confronts Lucas. She wants space. But is there something lingering between Michael and Emilia?

Tash is amazed her father doesn’t give her the lecture that she’s wasting her time by choosing Arts. She worries that he’s hiding something. However Michael is simply proud of her. He wasn’t there for her when she needed him and he’s pleased she’s done well despite this.
