An hungover Pete arrives for work on the farm where an equally hungover Matty is too caught up in moaning about Cain to warn him that the tractor is malfunctioning. Covering a shift for Vanessa, Rhona is also at the farm to check on some cows. As Rhona calls Pete from the barn, he’s distracted by his phone and when the tractor’s brakes fail he swerves into the barn, knocking Rhona to the ground where she lies unconscious and bleeding.

As Rhona’s stretchered into an ambulance, a livid Pete blames Cain, and guilt-stricken Matty can’t bring himself to confess. In hospital, Rhona’s life hangs in the balance.
