Harlow has decided to visit her dad and David's half-brother Robert Robinson (Adam Hunter) behind bars in the maximum security prison, to see if he's prepared to get tested as a possible kidney donor for David, who went into kidney failure after an accident on Power Road.

With family friend Roxy Willis (Zima Anderson) by her side, Harlow finally comes face-to-face with her dad. But has she made a terrible mistake in coming to meet the man who once tried to bump off his hated dad Paul Robinson (Stefan Dennis)?
