The day of Charlotte’s christening arrives, and when a flustered Robyn steps into the ED staff room, she finds herself face-to-face with Glen – the terminally ill fiance who jilted her at the altar – very much alive. Naturally, Robyn has a few questions, and Dylan fills in the blanks by flashing back to the morning after Charlie’s stag do, when he found a depressed Glen drinking away his woes in a rough karaoke bar.
Determined to convince him not to give up on life, Dylan enlists the aid of his feisty old university tutor Zsa Zsa Harper-Jenkinson – an eminent brain surgeon in the US – to assess Glen’s case. She reveals that pioneering surgery could save Glen, but the risks are high. However, with Dylan’s help, Glen realises the birth of his daughter has given him a new purpose in life and a fresh dream to chase.
