Monday 1st November ( ep 4616)

Sophie agrees to take the night off to hang out with Daniel, but doubts she'll feel any better about the new low she's sunk to.

Hunter convinces Sophie to distance herself from the I.V and hand over its day-to-day running to Murray and Brodie. 

Sophie is oblivious when Evan steals a bottle of vodka from the bar. 

Sophie's about to announce her departure from the I.V, but tension between Brodie and Murray stymies her plans. 

Daniel's pep talk convinces Sophie that she can create a better future by staying at the I.V.

Tracey's relieved when Scotty seems to grasp the importance of time out from work. 

But she soon realises what a struggle it is for Scotty to let work go. 

When Scotty refuses to take it easy, Tracey deliberately sabotages the kitchen to get him to shift his focus.  

Tracey feels bad, but is relieved that Scotty finally seems to understand the situation.

Evan steals home brew from his father and boasts to Phoenix and Ula that they are in for a fun night at tonight's school social. 

Ula dobs Evan in to Wendy and Maxwell.  Wendy calls Murray in to discipline their son. 

Murray grounds Evan and humiliates him in front of Phoenix and Ula, making him more resentful. 

The next day, Ula taunts Evan for the way his dad treated him and Evan decides to prove he's no kid, and get back at Murray. 

Sophie makes the mistake of leaving Evan unattended at the bar, where he steals a bottle of vodka.

He wants Phoenix to join him for a drinking session, but Phoenix sensibly refuses.

Tuesday 2nd November (ep 4617)

Evan is rushed through to radiology for an MRI to determine the severity of his back injury. 

Ula blames herself.  Wendy and Murray are scared for Evan - if his spinal cord is badly damaged he may never walk again. 

The MRI reveals there is a fractured vertebrae but the spinal cord seems intact. 

With good news in sight, Murray's worry turns to anger and he admonishes Evan harshly for his foolishness, and Ula for her involvement. 

Ula is again upset but after Jasmine and Sophie's disbelief Ula was responsible, Murray apologises. 

The Cooper family pull together to support Evan.

Brodie reports the news of Evan and the stolen liquor to Sophie. 

Sophie realises Evan stole the alcohol on her watch and holds herself ultimately responsible for his accident. 

On hearing Evan may never walk again, Sophie breaks down and turns to Callum for support. 

Her despair leaves Callum unsettled. 

On her return, Rachel is determined to follow through on her decision to end her relationship with Callum straight away.

Brooke is frustrated that Callum has denied her reduced hours to work on her research. 

Isaac and Brooke agree to find some information for Shane Tucker of the DHB to depose Callum. 

When he hears Callum will eventually reinstate Rachel in the hospital and therefore become a power team, Shane increases the pressure on Brooke to find some detrimental material.

TK and Jennifer talk up their golfing abilities prior to heading out for a game.

Daniel warns TK to go easy, as thrashing Jennifer might sour his romantic chances.  The game begins and TK plays badly. 

Jennifer does the same, fearing that TK's ego will be crushed if she beats him.

Jennifer accidentally hits a fellow golfer with her ball.  The player is alright and reveals himself to be one of the world's leading MS researchers. 

Trying to put aside her own agenda, Brooke advises Rachel to follow her heart, leading Rachel to resolve to break up with Callum despite his family crisis. 

Brooke confides in Isaac that Rachel and Callum's relationship is on the rocks. 

Isaac thinks they should tell Shane, but Brooke warns him not to. 

When Rachel fails to tell Callum she loves Chris, Isaac becomes impatient.  He goes to Shane and tells him all.

Rachel is all set to break up with Callum when Shane hints that she's lucky not to be in trouble over Leo Hofstetter. 

Rachel raises this with Callum, who reveals that the DHB wanted to blame Rachel for hiring Leo, but Callum defended her. 

Sophie later spills that Callum personally borrowed $200,000 to cover the money Leo stole, to avoid a scandal that would have involved Rachel. 

Rachel is left realising what a good man he is. 

Then Rachel becomes insecure when she discovers one of the doctors assisting Chris in Sydney is a very attractive woman. 

She discusses the merits of Callum versus Chris with Brooke, becoming even less clear about what she wants. 

Rachel arrives home to find Callum preparing a romantic dinner. 

When he tells her how much she means to him, Rachel makes her decision and declares her love.

Brooke finds herself off-side with Rachel as well when Rachel discovers that Isaac told Shane.

He and Jennifer consummate their relationship.

However, she's disappointed when she learns that Rachel wants the Two I.C. job after all.  

She confides to TK that she was hoping for a challenge and a new sense of direction. 

Sarah is deflated when Daniel prefers to spend time with his new flatmates instead of her. 

Quentin invites her to have dinner with him so they can continue their discussion.

But does TK really want her to go?


Friday 5th November (ep 4620)

TK's mind is on Sarah, in spite of reassurances to Jennifer. 

Sarah is rattled when TK informs her of what he has uncovered:  Dr. Presley has ties to Scott-Spear Pharmaceuticals. 

Daniel raises the possibility with Sarah that the reason TK looked for dirt on Dr. Presley might be that he wants her to remain in Ferndale. 

Sarah confronts Dr. Presley about his links with Scott-Spear, but he gives an eloquent defence, insisting that curing MS is a priority above all moral objections. 

Sarah informs TK that she's no longer certain about leaving for Boston, and TK feels an unexpected surge of satisfaction. 

Jennifer bluntly asks TK if he wants Sarah to stay in Ferndale.  He denies, but Jennifer is left unsettled.

Luke frets when he sees how badly hurt his brother Rafael is. 

Luke struggles to remain objective when Isaac reveals Rafael's condition is critical.
