Hugh faces chaos at home and work, with a mutiny on the farm and a deadly pregnancy crisis with Hayley. Meryl teaches Matt and Charlie a lesson about bribery and corruption.

There’s trouble for Matt (Ryan Johnson) at the Brewery as a rave breaks out at the glamping site, and Darren (Uli Latukefu) is called in to investigate.

But the noise complaint is not the worst of Matt’s problems, as Darren realises that the Brewery’s liquor licence doesn’t extend to the glamping site, and so Matt’s been serving alcohol illegally. Determined to save his license, Matt realises he may have to bribe Darren, and goes to the expert for advice — Meryl (Tina Bursill).

Meanwhile, Penny’s (Hayley McElhinney) content with how things transpired with Hugh (Rodger Corser), they had sex and then said their goodbyes — clean and simple. But things get awkward when she realises Hugh hasn’t actually left, he’s got problems to sort out in Whyhope which means he’ll be hanging around for a while.

But everything’s put on hold when Hayley (Chloe Bayliss) starts having symptoms of pre- eclampsia. She’s taken into the hospital where her condition rapidly deteriorates, and Hugh diagnoses HELLP syndrome. Hayley’s at risk for stroke, so Hugh’s forced to make a call — he needs to deliver the baby. He performs an emergency C-section and Hayley gives birth to a premature baby boy.
