Before she can react, Shirley gets in there first and punches Zack. And after Nancy then ends the relationship, Mick too almost comes to blows with the love cheat. But Zack isn’t about to give up on Nancy and decides to propose.
We’re sworn to secrecy as to the answer Nancy gives, but it’s fair to say that she’s about to have a particularly momentous week.
And with mum Linda also being discharged from hospital, there’s further angst on that front too when Nancy finds a bottle of vodka in her possession…
Harvey and Mitch are attacked
Kat is anxious when threatening calls start coming through to the cab office in scenes to be shown on Wednesday. Assuming Shirley to be responsible, Kat confronts her but soon works out that someone else is behind the threats.
But Kat’s realisation comes too late for Harvey and Mitch who, after taking another menacing call, end up being attacked by two men. Following the beating, Kat frets to Sharon and suggests they delay the opening night at Peggy’s. Sharon, though, decides to seek answers and pays a visit to Phil in prison…
Suspected case of meningitis on the Square
Chelsea is concerned that her son Jordan is under the weather, but feels compelled to go to work.
Sensing how worried she is, Sharon gets Denise to stop by and instal a video baby monitor so that Chelsea can see Jordan whenever she likes. The kind gesture puts Chelsea’s mind at rest, to the extent that she stays for a drink with Sharon after her shift. But, when she returns home, Chelsea’s worst nightmares are realised when she finds paramedics in the house tending to Jordan.
After the baby is rushed to hospital, Chelsea can’t help but blame herself, especially when she’s told that Jordan is actually sick with suspected meningitis.

Howie tries to escape from Kim
Kim’s nursing skills aren’t exactly impressing a recuperating Howie, who makes an escape attempt and tries to hide from her. But Kim eventually tracks him down.
