Although Cathy (Gabrielle Dowling) needs all the assistance she can get, she has higher expectations of Liam (Jonny McPherson) than he is ready to meet.

Tony Audenshaw’s character, Bob, had hoped that his teenage daughter’s time away would aid in her beginning to recover and come to terms with her symptoms. Instead, when Wendy (Susan Cookson) sobbed over the fact that nothing had changed, she disclosed to Wendy that she had returned in a state.

The good news is that Cathy has been diagnosed with PMDD; the bad news is that it is incurable. The teenager is devastated by this information.

She is determined to find a treatment since she will not accept that she must live with this condition the rest of her life. She won’t listen when Bob, Wendy, or Bernice (Samantha Giles) try to help her accept it.

Later, she turns violent and throws a garden statue out the B&B window in a fit of blind wrath. It barely misses Manpreet (Rebecca Sarker), indicating that Cathy’s situation is getting worse. She pushes Wendy to the ground while losing her temper, requiring Bob to intervene. However, he experiences a stab in his chest when he does this.

Cathy runs away as the seriousness of her deeds dawns on her. She is discovered by Liam outside Tenants holding her bleeding hand.
They start talking when he gently prods her to show him the wound. The fact that he will listen to her when it seems like no one else will comforts Cathy.

In a time when she is feeling so alone, his kindness is unexpected and appreciated.

She quickly assumes that he has bad motives as they continue to discuss her illness and he continues to offer her his time. What will be his response to her presumptions?
