Dot's lying motionless on the sofa and when Nick returns from the pub, he's convinced that she's dead and he's clearly shaken at the turn of events. He drinks a beer as he and Dotty corroborate their stories in the kitchen. As they plot, Dot wanders through the door and Nick's flabbergasted. Puzzled as to where the pills are and why Dotty didn't go through with the deadly deed, Nick looks down to his beer and realises that she's laced his drink instead. Clever seven-year-old. Instead of just wandering off like he usually does, Nick instead orchestrates a hostage situation in the cafe, as you do. You'll never guess what happens next. In other happenings, Dawn persuades Phil to employ her at the Vic, Max continues to pursue Tanya and Christian struggles to run the business while Ian is away.
