Michael managed to revive Max and Connie tells Kyla that he needs surgery. But a decision about surgery can only be agreed when Max's foster parents Lindsey and Andrew arrive. Kyla found out that Lindsey had been out drinking and told Max's social worker that Lindsey was an alcoholic and tried to persuade him to let her have Max back. But Roger wouldn't believe her and insisted Max was better off in his new home. Meanwhile, Michael suspected Abra was a liability after he struggled during an operation. After another operation when pear-shaped and with some persuasion from Ric, Michael agreed to cover for Abra. Meanwhile, Elliot bottled out of a coffee date with Lady Byrne but later apologised and agreed to take her out for a coffee.
