Lauren is starting to feel the pressure of keeping Tanya's secret and she worries when her mother heads out to work, despite the fact that she's just been sick. Worried, Lauren makes a desperate call to someone, asking them to come back and help. Later, Tanya is left stunned when Greg walks into the salon and it's clear that he's the person who Lauren contacted. When they head back to Max's house to talk, Tanya initially keeps quiet about why she's finding life difficult at the moment, but she eventually tells Greg the truth about her illness. However, Greg is unable to cope with the enormity of the situation and leaves.
Lauren spots Greg as he's making his departure and desperately tries to get him to stay, but he makes it clear that he can't deal with the situation and leaves as planned. Lauren then tries to convince Tanya that they don't need Greg and can cope with this alone. Later, Lauren helps Tanya to brush her hair but is alarmed when the brush is filled with much more hair than usual. Needing an escape, Lauren heads out to Poppy's 21st birthday party at Anthony and Tyler's place. Feeling jealous over Whitney and Fatboy as they've gone public with their relationship at the bash, Tyler makes a move on Lauren and although she initially rejects him, it's not long before they're heading upstairs together…
Meanwhile, Norman is still trying to woo Pat but she gets angry with him and there's an alarming moment when she grabs her chest in pain. She soon takes some pills for her heart and admits that it's a stressful time for her as she's just heard that Simon is going to lose his house in New Zealand. Norman offers to help Pat with the financial problem.
Elsewhere, Ben feigns an injury while out running because he wants some attention from Christian. Syed later teases Christian that Ben must have a crush on him.
