But when Reuben is rushed to the hospital, will Mack fight the urge to go and visit his son?
As he watches Chloe struggle with Reuben and some shopping, Mack is pained and ends up helping. But when Sarah catches them together, she chastises them.
Despite Chloe promising it won’t happen again, Sarah is unconvinced and later, in her absence, Mack awkwardly enquires about Reuben and is buoyed when Chloe asks if he’d like to join them for a walk.
When Chloe tells him she’s taking Reuben back to Scotland, Mack's heart breaks as he says farewell to his son.
The next day, Chloe panics when Reuben starts running a temperature and Dr Liam, concerned about his symptoms, suggests they take him straight to the hospital.
Soon, Chloe's world falls away when she's told that it's likely that Reuben has bacterial meningitis.
Elsewhere, when the news about the meningitis diagnosis filters through, Mackenzie’s left reeling. Will he fight his urge to go to his son?
