James catches Leonie off her guard while she is walking Scruff. She's furious. James is keen to talk but Leonie really doesn't want to. James follows her, needing an explanation. She finally reveals she's pregnant.

Ed has a talk with Rosa. He explains that Darrell was only shoplifting in an effort to make sure he had a present for her. Upset by this news, Rosa runs off.

Susan gathers some food to take to Darrell. But as she walks into the utility room she finds her new pashmina has been ruined by George's new puppy, Holly. Susan is distraught but promises George that Holly is part of the family now. They won't send her back.

Rosa turns up, and Ed cautiously tells her to go and say hello to Darrell. Rosa is unsure and just can't bring herself to see him.

James heads to the Dower House, needing some motherly advice. But as Lilian is not in, it falls to Matt. He is sober and sensible, and draws on his own experiences. Although he is insistent it's up to Leonie and James to make the decision, he reminds James that the chance to have a family might not come round again.
