When Stacey catches up with him later, the terrified teen says he can’t be a dad. Her attempts to offer support and advice to Ricky make Stacey late for the hospital, leaving Lily to arrive all alone. 

Later, the mum-to-be announces that she wants to throw a gender reveal party. Stacey, who has been dodging calls from Shiv all day, is shocked to find him in the Slater kitchen. She’s horrified to hear his suggestion for how Stacey can repay Shiv’s debts
