Zainab returns home from hospital but Syed is frustrated when she refuses to open up about the incident with the pills and what really happened. Keen to get answers, Syed pays a visit to the surgery, wanting to know about the medication that Zainab's doctor has been prescribing. However, Yusef refuses to get involved and tells Syed that there isn't a medical explanation for what happened to Zainab - it's all down to the pressure she's been facing. Later, Syed asks his mother outright whether she hoped to kill herself by taking an overdose. Zainab is shocked but goes on to admit that she can't remember exactly what happened.
Later, Syed and Tamwar tell Masood what really happened last week and he's angry that they left him in the dark. At the same time, Zainab confides in Yusef over her current state of mind - vowing to change her priorities and concentrate on looking out for her family and friends from now on, including Syed and Masood. This is unwelcome news for Yusef and he fears that the situation is slipping beyond his control when Masood turns up and Zainab asks to be left alone with him. However, an emotional Masood has some news for Zainab - he believes that her 'suicide attempt' was a wake-up call and he's decided to divorce her…
