As the soap dispenser mystery continues to baffle Al and Bear, there is no clean slate on offer for Ruhma.

Zara gets a shock when she discovers the cause of a young boy’s stomach pains.

Donna arrives home from work to find her 11-year-old son, Corey still in bed. He complains of stomach pains but thinking he is just trying to get out of his chores and school she yells at him to get up, she’s taking him to the doctor.

Ayesha complains to Bear about her broken soap dispenser. Al claims his is working just fine, but Sid complains that the dispenser in the MSU is on the blink too.

Ruhma gets the phone call she has been dreading and has to confess all to Zara and Daniel.

Zara realises that Corey’s stomach pains are caused by hunger, so she gives him something to eat and calls his dad.

Donna doesn’t take kindly to Zara’s implication that she’s not looking after Corey.
