Written by Glen Dolman
Directed by John Curran

Rejuvenated to her youth, Gwen’s desires to amend a deep regret threatens to pull her and Ray apart, while Sam’s affair with Tina continues as his criminal past returns to haunt him.

Ray is stunned to discover that Gwen has returned home, but in her youthful body. While struggling to process this miracle, Ray informs Gwen’s care home that he’s now looking after his wife himself. A bewildered, Max — who previously glimpsed a “rejuvenated” Gwen — searches for her, but Ray keeps her hidden. Gwen pushes Ray to take a berry from the plant also, but Ray doesn’t react as Gwen hoped. Gwen’s old friend, Loris, suspects that Ray is having an affair with a younger woman when she catches sight of Gwen. Meanwhile, Loris cares for her wheelchair-bound husband, Herb, who’s hiding his own secret. Gwen relishes her new youth, but is soon overcome by an irrational desire which threatens to tear her and Ray apart. Sam helps Isaac in his search for Annie while he continues to wreak havoc, as Griffo starts to piece together Sam’s true identity. A sel sh act by Sam puts Gwen’s youth — and life — in jeopardy.
