He starts pounding on Hayley’s chest again, more frantic this time, over and over. Finally, Hayley splutters back to life. Scott’s relief is palpable… He hears Kim and Alf’s voices calling for him. Scott yells back – in here! They need to get Hayley help now! Kim picks up his baby boy, utterly overcome by the moment – the magnificent, precious gift in his hand.

The specialist has managed to repair Hayley’s heart. Meanwhile, Martha’s been moping around the house in her robe and Alf’s worried. He wants her to get out and get a bit of fresh air. But Martha insists she’s fine. Alf knows how stubborn she is – he also knows what it’s like to go through something like that. Maybe she needs to talk to someone? But Martha isn’t keen. Alf keeps pushing and Martha snaps a little – I’m fine! I can deal with it! But Alf is left worried…
Hayley opens her eyes and see Scott looking down at her. She smiles when she sees him (but she’s still weak and groggy). Hayley asks – the baby? Scott says the baby’s fine…you had a little boy…little Noah. Hayley is teary… Hayley – How did you know where I was? Scott – I followed my gut. Hayley smiles as they both realise there were far greater powers at work (the link between the two is undeniable). Kim appears at the door, little Noah in his hands… Kim – someone wants to see their mummy. Hayley tears up as Kim hands the baby over to her. Scott and Irene move out from Hayley’s room and in to the corridor…where Scott is stunned to see Amanda sitting waiting. She knows Scott has every reason to be angry with her, but there’s something he needs to know… Amanda is going to tell Scott the truth about the paternity, but Scott becomes really cutting and Amanda darkens, leaving Scott seething –oblivious to the fact that he’s just been responsible for not finding out the truth about the baby!
