He tells Frankie the news and asks if they could get back together. He later catches his mum with Dennis and his hopes for a family reunion are shattered.

Rachel continues to hide the fact that Lucy and Ben are missing from Sam. She even hires a nurse to tend to Sam's fake illness. She tells Sam he is terminally ill and is about to die.

But when she receives a call from a nurse confirming Sam's current state in hospital, at first she turns down the offer but later decides to go back to her old profession.

She takes it and wonders where it came from. Once again, Begonia refuses to go through with the surrogacy. Jimmy is delighted. He doesn't believe that it isn't in her best interests to go through with it. Could it be that Jimmy is madly in love?(yep). Begonia ,at first, believes that Jimmy still has a crush on her but soon realises for the better. By the canal, together they throw away the plastic cup containing Charlie's semen and kiss. Fiona is feeling young again. She is having a hot affair with teen Dennis and is enjoying every minute of it. She also relishes in the fact that Dennis fancies the pants off of her. In the middle of heat, Fiona hears Mike coming in. She rushes out of the bedroom whilst Dennis hides behind the bed. After a rather awkward conversation with her husband, she realises that her marriage is heading for the gutter and to revive it, she suggests that they agree to an open-marriage agreement (in other words, sleep with your spouse and anyone else). Mike agrees to the open-marriage. Now that he is free to date and sleep with whoever he wants, will he finally face up to reality?(the reality being that he is gay).

She can't bear the thought of something being wrong with her baby. She asks what is wrong but Natalie just hands the baby over to Roxanne and rushes out without even saying if it was a boy or girl. Natalie sits at home watching some old movie which has a strange effect on her. She realises that she needs to hold onto everything she has, including Duncan. She decides to get Duncan back as soon as possible. Back in Roxanne's bed, her and Alex determine whether or not the baby is a boy or girl. They decide that it is a boy and assure each other that nothing is wrong with their baby. Alex texts "IT'S A BOY!" to everyone he knows. He shouldn't be so sure... Fiona and Sam are among the many people who receives Alex's text message. Fiona is overwhelmed and memories of Tom's birth bring on the tears of joy. But something Frankie says about the baby that Fiona and Mike were planning to have, bring on the tears of sadness! Sam receives the text message. He tells Lydia this. Rachel also hears.

Roxanne and Alex bring their "son" downstairs for all to see. Everyone is so happy. Especially Roxanne and Alex. But the thought of something being wrong with their baby still lingers... Natalie returns (with a strange hairdo) to inform Roxanne and Alex what the problem is with the baby. She explains that she didn't tell them the gender of the baby at first because she couldn't detremine the gender herself. So she had to rush home to look up genders and their difficulties. She concludes that the baby is intersex. Roxanne is shattered. Alex tells Natalie that he wants a second opinion... At school, Rachel notices an ad for a school play on the bulletin board.

He tells her that she will never tear them apart. Alex is over at the Brakes with Fiona. He can't stop thinking about his baby's "problem". Rachel tries to convince Dennis to make Sam see sense. Natalie's role as doctor gets a little creepy when she starts force-feeding Duncan sleeping pills. She asks him, "Who knows best?" He replies, "Doctor." Roxanne is furious with Alex for headbutting Dennis. First they argue about that and they start arguing about their marriage and it's complications. Roxanne is unhappy that Alex will not talk about the baby's problem. Cracks are appearing once again... Whilst having sex with Tom, Frankie has a bizarre experience. This experience has an effect.
