Alf is furious with Bridget after discovering she has been stealing cash from the business. But he is thrown when she tells him her cancer has returned and she needed the money to pay for treatment. Apparently, she didn’t tell him because she didn’t want him to face her burden as well as Martha’s.

Unsure what to think, Alf takes the money when she offers to give it back to him. Later, Bridget tearfully tells Colleen what happened and confides she is worried that Alf must hate her. Colleen goes to Alf and tells him he should forgive Bridget as she is under stress. Feeling guilty, Alf asks Bridget to stay so he can take care of her.

Melody is unwilling to admit her behaviour has got out of hand after Nicole took her home from the party. The next day, Ruby is annoyed at seeing Melody and Matthew having lunch together and tells Melody that Matthew would be willing to dump her on the spot. Matthew denies it, and Melody takes his side.

Also, Miles and Kirsty are forced to tell everyone they are back together when they are caught by Colleen.
