Penny must decide between her loyalty to the hospital and her feelings for Hugh. Meryl's corruption trial takes a surprising twist, and Ajax takes a stand to win back Hayley.

Meryl is found guilty in court and Ajax turns to gambling as a distraction from his marital problems but it’s not all bad news: the Clinic hits the KPI quotas necessary to secure their funding, despite a sabotage attempt by Penny, who knows that if they are successful Hugh is likely to leave.
