It’s Lauren’s hen night, and the ladies, decked out in fancy dress, are in high spirits as they prepare for a hot-air balloon flight. But there’s tension when an unexpected guest joins the trip, and a bigger shock when the main burner goes out and they plummet down to earth. Jacka, it turns out, has done some meddling in revenge for Ned’s fling with Regan. Three lives hang in the balance and doctor Karl is forced to take drastic action to ensure one of the women lives to tell the tale. On the plus side, the incident makes Jack finally confess his feelings to Paige, who isn’t so badly hurt she can’t manage a bit of nookie with him.
Lauren is hurt in the balloon crash – but how badly?
