Penny's personal feelings for Hugh spill over into the workplace, with embarrassing results. Charlie and Matt struggle to deal with an unwanted house guest. A high-profile cardiac patient causes problems for Ken and Hugh.

Carlito (Vince Colosimo) has skipped town and Charlie (Nicole da Silva) and Matt (Ryan Johnson) are left at loggerheads: just what are they meant to do with Ivy (Annabel Wolfe)?

Charlie decides to take the young renegade to school, where the pain of her father’s departure and Matt’s objections are sidelined in yet another Ivy chase cross-country.

Over at the hospital, Hugh (Rodger Corser) and the team are preparing for the arrival of a special guest. Not only is Doctor Lucas Fine (Matt Okine) Hugh’s old boarding school chum, he’s also the chairman of the hospital board. With a little revamp, the cardiac clinic could be up for a considerable donation.

While Ken (Charles Wu) is inappropriately impressed by Lucas’ social media presence and numerous accolades, Penny (Hayley McElhinney) is going to take a little more convincing. Unfortunately, Hugh’s efforts go too far and he ends up in the middle of an awkward love triangle.

Back at the homestead, Ajax (Matt Castley) and Hayley (Chloe Bayliss) bring little Jimmy home for the first time. Having read (or looked at the pictures in) a whole host of books, the new parents are feeling confident. There’s just a couple of problems: Meryl (Tina Bursill) can’t seem to let go and there’s something wrong with Jimmy’s face that no book can solve!

Old friends, fledgling families, new beginnings: After much deliberation and a hash meal, Matt and Charlie decide Ivy can stay. Hayley, Ajax and Meryl learn to navigate new boundaries and new businesses. Penny rejects Lucas and his money, but Hugh would take his old team over an old friend any day.
