At Honeysuckle Cottage Adam has been awake all night worrying about Kate's offer. He waits until the morning to tell Ian, and is surprised when Ian seriously considers the possibility. For all her talk of "maternal instinct", Kate hasn't been a brilliant mother. But Ian argues that Kate's record of leaving her children behind might make it easier for her to be a surrogate. Later, Eddie mentions to Ian that he's seen Kate with Nolunthando, and observes that she likes to make things complicated. When Ian and Adam discuss the offer again they wonder if it's part of Kate's midlife crisis. Ian suspects she would interfere with their parenting. They decide they'll have to refuse, but agree to handle Kate with caution.
