Seth attempts to rise above the fallout from his public outing by claiming that hes made the hitherto oblivious Rachel and Harper look like fools.

Meanwhile, Brooke is charmed that Boyd understands her efforts to advance his career, despite her failure to make headway.

Harpers in damage control and Brooke, keen to curry favour, is quick to agree to spread the cover story that Harper and Rachel knew about Seth and Henry all along.

However, Brooke thinks it might be politic to realign herself with Seth so secretly offers him her support.

Josh tries to lift his attitude and his game in ED, but is knocked back by TKs patronising attitude towards him.

So he is cheered by a plan to party with Harper.

At the I.V., Josh is unsettled when Harper introduces him to a new acquaintance, Neil Hesketh.

Harper dismisses his concerns and later Josh is drawn in by Neils luxurious lifestyle and agrees to attend a swanky party the following evening.

Jasmine is excited to be close to signing with Lincoln but dreads telling Dayna of her success.

Despite Wendys attempt to cover, Bella becomes convinced all is not well with her.

Wendy fears that Evan has overheard this and unfairly berates him.

Evan is pulled up when Roimata hints that Wendy has medical concerns.

Thinking Wendy is going through menopause, Evan is sympathetic and offers his support.

However, a surprised Wendy assumes he has found out about about the termination and admits she struggled with the decision.

Evan finally clicks that she's talking about a termination not menopause and he's deeply shocked.

Josh is frustrated when TK wont allow him to treat an injured Neil out of turn.

Ignoring TK, Josh treats Neils cut finger in the carpark, winning his gratitude.

When Josh phones Harper about meeting up to party, Harper ignores the call and distracts TK with sex to protect her association with Josh.

When Harper does finally turn up, she tries to warn Josh off Neil but a slighted Josh chooses to go party with him.

At Neils apartment, Josh is alarmed to find an injured man bleeding out.

Neil refuses to take the man to hospital and implores Josh to help.

With his career potentially riding on this decision, Josh is caught in an impossible position.

She calls Murray and is relieved when Murray claims that nothing is wrong.

Jasmine is further buoyed when Dayna reassures her of her love and support.

When Jasmine has an attack of nerves about a possible modelling job, Dayna is quick to bolster her, encouraging her to accept it.

Seth is unsettled to realise how much professional respect he has lost in the aftermath of his and Henrys outing.

Roimata is sure that she just needs to give them some time.

Kylie is even more sympathetic towards Wendy when she learns that she, not Jasmine, had the termination.
