Disgraced heart surgeon Dr Hugh Knight's plans to leave Whyhope forever are upended when tragedy strikes. Penny makes a fateful decision about her love life.

It’s been three months since we last saw the Knight family, and much has changed: Jim’s (Steve Bisley) had a heart attack and died… and that’s not all that’s new, as we quickly learn that Hayley (Chloe Bayliss) is pregnant.

Suddenly under enormous pressure, the family struggles to keep it together while they deal with their grief. However things are only about to get harder — as Hugh (Rodger Corser) learns that he’s both inherited the farm, and along with it, millions of dollars of debt. It’s imperative that the farm starts turning a profit, but Matt (Ryan Johnson) and Ajax (Matt Castley) are at logger heads over how the property should be run. Matt thinks they need to re-invent, while a grieving Ajax is determined to keep everything exactly as Jim wanted it. Meanwhile, Meryl (Tina Bursill) is struggling with her grief in a different way — haunted by nightmares, she avoids sleep, and does everything she can to try and stay awake.

Meanwhile, Hugh’s probation has expired and it’s time he went back to Sydney for his interview. It goes well, and his license to practise is re-instated. But he can’t escape the chaos for long, as the trouble in his family soon calls him back to Whyhope. But his grieving family might not be the only thing calling him back, and on his return, Hugh and Penny (Hayley McElhinney) finally sleep together.
