Back at the hospital, a selfless Rhys takes control, preparing Vanessa for the final stages. He also finally gets through to Lucas, who races to the hospital upon hearing the news. Rhys then talks Vanessa through the birth, unwittingly reigniting their bond.
Vanessa's baby is born safely and Rhys realises how much he wants to be a part of their new family. Declaring his love, he spontaneously proposes. Overwhelmed, Vanessa accepts… just as Lucas arrives. He's missed the birth of his son and his chance with Vanessa.
Meanwhile, Sonya's home birth continues, but Toadie's anxiety rises the longer it goes on. He works to get Alex onside with going to the birth centre, but the more pressure on Sonya, the more she resists. When her waters break and there are signs the baby is in distress, the race is on to get her to hospital in time.
Elsewhere, seeing Kyle's plans for a chilled out pre-Christmas lunch thwarted by bossy Sheila, Georgia resolves to help. She wins over Sheila and the lunch is a success - until Georgia's alpha male boyfriend Scotty turns up. Watching his macho competitiveness compared to Kyle's humour, Georgia starts to wonder if she's with the right guy.
