After Denise rushes out to hide in a bush, Stacey gets her back inside, where Yolande and Pastor Clayton arrive to give counsel. As Stacey insists that Denise needs to see a psychiatrist, Denise pays a visit to the only person she believes can help her – Lucas.
However, Lucas is very worried by Denise’s behaviour and the things she is saying. When she arrives home in an agitated state, Denise frightens the life out of Amy and Ricky.
