When Conrad's assault brief comes across Tracey's desk, Richard realises the implications of his and Tatum's lie, and has to tell her what's happened.

Janet and Lina are told that Max Gardiner is dead and that Sean has confessed to killing him to protect their new baby. Virginia begs for Janet's help to keep Sean out of jail. Janet promises to ensure charges against Sean don't proceed, but the autopsy results take that decision out of her hands.

Miriam Mansie pressures David to retire and Janet believes he should release the Quinn tapes to clear his name. But after much soul searching, David destroys the tapes for the sake of Quinn's daughters, and decides to take some long overdue leave.

He appoints Tony to take over, and immediately Tony destroys Tracey's whiteboard and suggests she return to work as an advocate. After consoling each other, Tracey and Tatum go out to drown their sorrows, where Tatum and Richard's estrangement takes an unexpected turn.

When Erin arrives for what she thinks is an exit interview, she is offered her job back. Unable to decide, she returns later to pick up a promised reference, and finds Janet is in labour. With Ash un-contactable, Erin has no choice but to stay with Janet through the birth of the twins.
