When she pays him a visit at No.41, what does she want?
As Nish returns home, Priya reveals that the builders may have to re-lay the foundations of the café and Suki is spooked and heads to No.41 to persuade Nish to reconsider turning the café into flats.
Surprisingly, he agrees, but the biggest shock comes when Denise arrives.
With the events of Christmas still weighing heavily on her, Denise arranges a last-minute couples counseling session with Jack and Kathy calls a crisis meeting in The Vic barrel store to talk about Denise.
But the women are left even more concerned when Suki shares news about Denise’s visit to Nish.
At therapy, Jack is rattled when it's clear Denise isn’t listening and later, following a heated chat with Denise, Jack heads outside for air where he bumps into Stacey who feigns interest for information on Denise. As the pair share a charged moment, it’s clear there are still feelings there.
Following a heart-to-heart with Yolande, Denise attends the community church group and is pleasantly surprised by how comforting she finds it.
Elsewhere, Kim is spooked when she smells perfume on Howie’s clothing and is convinced he’s having an affair.
