Diane cracks when she finds Victoria having a party at Dale View. Later, as she regrets the fact that she's taken her own stress out on Victoria and humiliated her in front of her friends, Doug calms her down and re-offers to ease her worries with a loan. When Doug refuses to take no for an answer, Diane is touched by his kindness and tearfully accepts. Meanwhile, as Isaac flirts with another girl at Victoria's party, Hannah can't help but feel under pressure to sleep with him and leads Isaac to one of the bedrooms. However, she panics when Isaac tells her there was an accident with the protection he used, and she runs out, embarrassed. Elsewhere, David takes charge of bickering sisters Leyla and Alicia, chastising Leyla for being overly maternal of Jacob - but he only leaves Leyla annoyed.
