Byron has some surprise news of his own.
He's ready to settle down and move to Erinsborough!
Meanwhile, Glen Donnelly (Richard Huggett) is ready to seize his chance to reconnect with daughter, Kiri Durant (Gemma Bird Matheson).
Kiri has invited Glen along to her birthday celebrations at The Waterhole.
Unfortunately, Kiri's birthday coincides with Glen's attempt to go cold turkey after developing a pain killer addiction.
Terese Willis (Rebekah Elmaloglou) is concerned when she sees Glen hit by some severe withdrawal symptoms.
She worries Glen is pushing himself too hard, too fast.
But Glen is determined not to disappoint Kiri on her birthday.
Unfortunately, things are about to go from bad to worse for poor Glen...
