Heath (Dan Ewing) and Bianca (Lisa Gormley) struggle to come to terms with the sudden death of their young son Rocco. Heath wonders if they somehow caused it.

Bianca is unable to stay in the house her son died in and leaves Heath to go stay at Irene's. With Bianca gone, a devastated Heath breaks down in grief, and Brax comforts him.

"It's extremely tough for both of them" Dan told TV Week. "Heath certainly wants to get through this together, but Bianca, goes into shutdown mode."
