Now wanting to stay, Vanessa refuses to be shaken by Rhys's arrival and apologises to Lucas for being distant lately. Lucas thinks nothing of it, but when he sees Vanessa tiring later, he protectively insists on taking her home. Back at the house, Vanessa invites him to spend more time with her, feeling increasingly drawn to Lucas. Could Lucas be actually in with a chance?
Meanwhile, shell-shocked by what she thinks she's seen, Rani needs answers. She gathers her courage and tentatively confronts her mother. Priya lies and claims that she was merely comforting Paul because he's having a tough time lately with Andrew's epilepsy. Rani is not entirely sold but when Sophie unintentionally confirms Priya's story, Rani decides to trust her mother. However, when a guilty Priya overcompensates by buying Rani a present, Rani notes the strange behaviour and holds onto her suspicion.
Elsewhere, seeing Vanessa with Lucas, a heartbroken Rhys tries to move on from her by being with another woman. While he has no trouble finding someone keen, he can't go through with it - he's still not over his ex.
