Mackenzie is settling into his new attentive role, and is touched by Moira’s words about him being a great Dad. At Jacobs Fold, Charity is suddenly hit with a wave of pain and she worries something is wrong with the baby.

Not long after, Mackenzie enters to find a broken Charity struggling on the floor. Mackenzie scoops her into his arms, but Charity’s crushed to think it may already be too late. Charity’s gutted at Mackenzie’s optimism as they enter the hospital. Both try to hide their fear from each other as a Doctor rushes them to the Early Pregnancy Unit. Anxious Mackenzie and Charity are left awaiting results, as the Radiographer heads off to find a Doctor.

The doctor confirms that Charity’s pregnancy is ectopic, and therefore not viable. Mackenzie is blown away and heartbroken as he and Charity hear the heartbeat of the baby they are destined to lose.

Charity is grateful for Mackenzie’s support, but it’s evident that Mackenzie isn’t as okay as he’s making out.
