Pupil Mercedes, a keen athlete, is wanting to impress Jez with her running skills. He tells her that if she trains really hard, he believes that she could be a national champion. Meanwhile, there's a fun run scheduled for the end of the day. Everyone's gathered at the starting line, but before the race begins, Janeece gets the shock of her life when Craig proposes to her in front of the whole school - and she says yes! Soon after, the run is underway. Jez's star pupil Mercedes falls and hurts her ankle. Far from school and without a phone, she tells him that she lives a few minutes away, and that her mum is a nurse. Reluctantly, he takes her back home. However, once inside her house, it becomes clear that she has the wrong impression. She makes a move on him, believing he was interested in her. He's horrified, and pushes her away. However, Mercedes' brother Eugene thinks he saw something different, and he immediately heads to Waterloo Road where he tells Michael Byrne what's been going on. Michael thinks he has no other choice but to suspend Jez. Struggling to deal with her pregnancy, Trudi tells Finn that their relationship is over. He can't understand why she's breaking up with him, but instead of revealing the shocking truth, she lies to him and says that she only went out with him to annoy her brother, Tariq. Then, Sian and Jez talk in her office. She tells him that she doesn't want a baby with him, and that she thinks their marriage is over. Coupled with being suspended from his job, Jez is left devastated...
