But despite being back home with her fiance, Tane Parata (Ethan Browne), and brother Cash Newman (Nicholas Cartwright), Felicity can't help but blame herself for the terrible turn of events that have left her maid-of-honour, Eden Fowler (Stephanie Panozzo), in a coma...
However, Felicity remains unaware of the TERRIBLE TRUTH...
That the truck was sabotaged by the biker gang, who were targetting Cash!

However, when they arrive at Northern District Hospital, the couple are confused when Ziggy's contractions suddenly STOP!
Was it a FALSE alarm?
