Bear’s teambuilding day takes the staff on an exciting scavenger hunt, with some strange encounters and a thrilling race to the finish!

Bear has organised a go-kart derby for teambuilding day. Luca arrives on his bike, furious about a reckless driver who ran him off the road. Valerie and him instantly get on and decide to form a team with Ruhma, whereas Daniel’s foul mood clashes with Luca’s tongue-in-cheek demeanour.

While the staff eagerly continue the day’s activities, Daniel’s mood deteriorates until Zara finally confronts him. He admits he’s been feeling powerless because Lisa’s decided to take Izzy on a holiday to Spain – even though she was supposed to be with Daniel. Zara’s understanding, but reminds him not to ruin the day for the rest of the staff.
