Roy finishes taking all his pills. Hayley leaves to catch a bus to the airport. She tries to phone Roy to give him her forwarding address but he refuses to pick up the phone. Emily calls to see Tracy. Tracy tells her she's made an appointment for her abortion on Friday. Emily and Tracy have a heart-to-heart. Tracy tells Emily how ashamed of her Ken and Deirdre are and what a lousy mother she would make. Roy sees Hayley through the window. He phones her on the pay phone near the bus stop. Hayley detects that there's something really wrong with him. Roy puts himself to bed and waits to die. Hayley breaks into the cafe and finds Roy still alive. She forces him to drink salt water and make himself sick. He tells her about Tracy's forthcoming abortion. Hayley agrees to stay until Friday and help him to stop Tracy from killing his baby.
