Fiona celebrates when she qualifies as a stylist. Jon and Denise present her with her own trolley and scissors. Gail arranges to spend some time with the Websters but doesn't want Martin to join in. She decides not to take the pills. Mike tells Rodney that he's selling the Mercedes as Alma is jealous of the attention he receives when he's driving it. Dr Jaiswal talks to Ken and Deirdre about dialysis and transplants and warns them that Tracy will need a great deal of emotional and practical help. When Cathy Power gets upset over Tracy's illness, Martin tells her to pull herself together rather than comforting her. Ken doesn't know what he's got to offer Tracy and how he can help her. Gail decides to have her hair cut short but changes her mind when Fiona suggests she asks Martin's opinion first. Tracy becomes hysterical when she's told about her kidneys. Deirdre comforts her as she breaks down and feels she'd rather die.
