New Year's Eve at Leopard's Den. Alice has returned, but the stress of combining work with caring for baby Bobby is causing tension between her and Danny, which is exacerbated when their flirtatious new neighbour, Martin makes a play for her - at the party, at midnight, right under Danny's nose. Liv is furious that Fatani hasn't told his mother about their relationship, no-one likes Rosie's fiancé, Dylan, and it's a blow when 3 legged cheetah, Cassidy, and his new mate are stolen by poachers. With only days until the wedding, tempers are already running high when a trip to the doctor brings devastating news for Du Plessis. His heart is weak and without immediate bed rest, the prognosis is very bad indeed.
