Furious, Terry declares he won’t uproot his kids’ lives again and thinks that everything’s always about Bianca. Back home, Bianca find Carol apologising to Sonia. Sonia calmly tells a stunned Bianca she’s got the gene for breast cancer.

Max skives off work to build a train set with Oscar. Lucy calls round to work on tenancy agreements with Lauren. Max’s awkward when Lucy collars him in the kitchen and apologises he can’t meet later. When Lucy threatens to tell his family of their affair, Max calls her bluff and Lucy slopes off, alone. In the Vic, Lee approaches Lucy and she can’t help but be charmed.
Later, Lee waits in the Vic alleyway. As Lucy approaches, he pulls her inside and they kiss. Post coital, at the Beales’, Lucy coldly tells Lee to go, insisting it was a one off. Lucy tearfully confesses to Max that she slept with Lee, imploring him not to push her away. Max tells Lauren he has a car auction and regrets he can’t take Oscar bowling. Later, Lucy meets Max outside the tube station and they head off in Max’s car.

When Lee refuses to talk about it, Nancy suggests he confide in Mick. Stan tells Lee something will arrive for him tomorrow but suggests it’s not too late to change his mind. Lee’s adamant – he can’t go back to the army.
