In an effort to keep Tess’s 20th anniversary party under control, Nathan provides each reveler with just two free drinks. Stitch decides to liven up the party by spiking the fruit punch. Meanwhile, already late for the party, Tess and Nadia are arguing, and when Tess’s taxi doesn’t turn up Nadia reluctantly offers her a lift.
En route, the lost pair come across a burning woman, Kate, who runs out in front of their car. The pair battle to save the woman, however when Nadia notices her traumatised young daughter, Lauren, run off, she chases after her. Back at hospital, it is found that Kate set herself alight after learning of her husband, Aidan’s affair. Aidan who is already at the hospital after Kate threw a brick through a window, injuring his girlfriend, Liddy, is forced to make a decision about his future with Liddy and Lauren when Kate dies.
