Lauren remained in a critical condition and her spleen had to be removed by Elliott and Thandie. Faye was questioned by D.S. Tate about her whereabouts at the time of the attack. She asked Joseph to lie for her but realising that she was doing the same as Lauren did about Archie she prepared to tell the truth. But before she could do so Lauren awoke and Lauren covered for her and the two reconciled. Meanwhile, Vanessa told Ric and Michael that Connie had accepted a post as CT Consultant at another hospital effective immediately. Looking for a scapegoat for the Lauren incident Vanessa and Terence terminated Judith's contract. Elsewhere, the picture of Oliver and Jac's night of passion was leaked via email and Oliver was deeply concerned that Daisha would see it when she came back from her holidays.
