Alfie’s excited to see the twins for the first time at Kat’s scan. Kat visits Max, lying to Alfie she’s fetching milk, and worries that she shouldn’t have told him about Stacey. A bemused Abi interrupts. Alfie’s alarmed by a text message ‘Why are you ignoring me?’, and hurries out, leaving his phone behind. Max tries to convince Kat she can trust him. Kat declares she won’t keep secrets from Alfie. In the cafe, Alfie lends Billy a shoulder to cry on about losing his job. He’s horrified to realise his watch is still on Australian time and he’s late for Kat’s scan. Meanwhile, Max drives a worried Kat to the hospital and goes in with her for moral support. Kat’s overwhelmed when the scan finds two strong heartbeats. Max thinks Stacey would love to meet the babies. Alfie bursts in, apologising profusely, and Max bids a hasty retreat. Kat texts Max the address of the hairdresser’s. Max pays them a visit, impersonating an IT man, and downloads their client database. In the car lot, he and Kat set to work making calls. In the Vic, Alfie confides to Billy he did something awful when he was in Australia. After no luck calling clients, Kat turns to a ‘Colourist Candidate’ list. Max calls Jenny Smith, and hangs up when she answers – they’ve found Stacey.
