Valerie sees omens everywhere, and Bear can’t see what’s in front of him. Zara has to step in when a one-night stand has disastrous consequences.

Karen teases Bear about how Miranda clearly fancies him, but Bear denies it.

Valerie celebrates finding a blue plastic fish on her kitchen floor, it must be a good omen – she feels no anxiety about her check up. Karen thinks it’s just a sign Valerie is mad.

Alison (Rachel Denning), accosts a student, Jake (Chris Eastwood), and tells him that she has probably given him chlamydia after they slept together. But in a regular check up with Zara she says nothing about her STI.
