Extended Summary

After weeks of avoidance, Annie finally decides to go and visit Sally. When she hears about Sally’s near death experience, she sees a side to life that isn’t so unfair and godless. With her faith restored, the people who love her couldn’t be happier.

Shaken by Johnny’s attack, Jazz finally takes the opportunity to look her life over, and apologises for throwing herself at Tony the way she has, admitting that she approached the situation the wrong way, driven by jealousy of Rachel. Through this, Tony sees a new side to Jazz, maybe she is, after all, human.

When Matilda and Ric decide that, after everything they’ve been through, it’s time to move in together, Sally is only to happy this time to oblige.

In the aftermath of Johnny’s attack, even as Jack and the rest of the town praise her for her heroism, she works desperately to wipe away any trace of evidence that she ever harboured Johnny, consoling herself only with the assurances she’s been given that it’s unlikely he’ll ever wake up from the injury she gave him. But when a still comatose Johnny begins to mutter in hospital, the world falls away, and Sam is left with the terrible fear that he might still wake up and tell all.

Cassie is torn by Henk’s return. She still loves him as strongly as ever, but the fact is he left her when she needed him most, pregnant and with H.I.V. He’s back now to make amends, to be there for her now even though he let her down before. But after a confrontation with Rachel he comes to the same realisation that Cassie does, he’s only ever going to bring her pain, and though he’ll always be there if she needs him, it’s best that he leaves her to get on with her life.
