Gatekeeper Josh won’t let Beth in to Brookfield to see Ben. Beth persists and Josh agrees to tell Ben she’s there. Later Beth and Ben are out walking. They make small talk for a while before Beth tells Ben Steph’s finally admitted the truth. Beth’s really sorry she’s been so stupid, but when she saw Ben and Steph together she couldn’t think straight. Ben understands. The hardest thing for him has been knowing she’s hurt and doesn’t want to be with him. He gets why she felt that way. Beth feels she doesn’t deserve him. They agree that they’re ok again; they love each other. Josh lightly teases Ben that he’s all loved up again so quickly – Ben’s been hard to be with recently. Ben just wants to forget the last few weeks ever happened. Josh thinks Beth doesn’t deserve Ben, but if Ben’s happy, Josh is happy.
Alistair and Denise prepare for the vet awards event, each commenting that the other looks nice. Denise is nervous, but Alistair thinks she’ll win, especially with Jakob’s endorsement. Alistair attempts to solve a dress zip malfunction for Denise, but the zip breaks. Denise is all for bailing on the event, but Alistair has an idea. He calls Chelsea, who arrives with an assortment of her own dress options for Denise. They settle on a fuchsia pink dress with fake diamonds. Alistair is wowed – it’s perfect. He thanks Tracy for saving the day, and as they head off to the awards, Alistair can’t think of a more deserving winner than Denise.
