We pick up with Agatha after her period starts at the edge of a cliff. As she thinks about jumping, a dog runs over to her and she snaps out of her trance, its owner has called the police to stop her from taking her own life. A cop walks over to her and begins talking to her before he leads her over to the waiting police car.
She then finds herself at the hospital where a doctor asks for her name as she examines her. Agatha is then asked how many weeks she is but she says she doesn’t know despite the doc saying she’s pregnant. It’s here that a dazed Aggie says she can’t have kids.
Agatha tells the doctor she wasn’t going to jump. The doctor says one of her colleagues will examine her. Realising she’s going to be exposed if she doesn’t think quick, Aggie attempts to make a beeline for the exit but the doc from before catches her so she lies and says she needs to use the toilet really bad. A cop follows her to make sure she’s okay, though she escapes him.
She makes back to the flat where she looks down at the baby doll in the crib.

Simon Calls Meghan
Meghan sits in the waiting room of the doctor’s office when she gets a call from Simon. He apologises for what he said around the kids while Meghan says he’s being paranoid and is quick to get off the phone.

Before Simon can ponder on the call, Jack taps on his car window and tells him he smashed the pitch to the studio.
Agatha Takes Photos Of Violet’s Birth Certificate And Fakes That She’s Given Birth In A Video
With Leo occupied in front of the television, Agatha takes photos of the information she’ll need to fake a baby’s birth certificate by using Violet’s as a template.

Meanwhile, Violet and Leo’s mother, Julia awakes and finds her daughter missing from her cot. She goes out into the lounge room and asks her son where Aggie is. He then points her to the other bedroom where she finds Agatha putting up a child’s drawings on the wall.
