'Jenny' wakes and begins to tell Jase about the reasons behind her spate of drinking: her baby didn't die, she's with another family. Jase feels sorry for her as he understands how she can't let go. He tells 'Jenny' that drink isn't the way forward and that he couldn't see his son for years, either. What will May's next move be?

Later, May's about to post the card and present when she has second thoughts and returns to her car. May pulls onto the Square where she plans to keep an eye on the Millers' house. Seeing Denise, she ducks, in the hope of not being seen. Lucas spots her, however, and as she explains that she's delivering her baby's birthday presents, she bursts into tears.
