All on the line
Parenthood appears to be just a few months away for a delighted Kylie and Frank as they celebrate the news that their surrogate, and Kylie’s sister, Julia is pregnant with their longed-for child. The only fly in the ointment is Dylan, Julia’s enigmatic new husband, who’s unhappy about the arrangement. A romantic weekend getaway is planned to repair their differences but the mood sours drastically as Dylan suffers an inexplicable breakdown, leading to a bombshell revelation and an incident that leaves Julia fighting for her life – and the baby’s! Julia’s condition severely deteriorates in hospital, leaving Kylie at the mercy of a manipulative Dylan. She must make a tough decision which could also endanger her marriage to Frank. Elsewhere in the hospital corridors, the spectre of Chris’s ex, Rachel, drives a wedge between him and Zoe, and Nicole’s torment from her accident pushes her to the brink of a debilitating panic attack.
