When the blood test results come back, the doctor asks permission to take an urgent bone marrow biopsy as Evan has low haemoglobin and platelet levels. The terrified parents agree.

Billy returns to Home Farm to update Will and Kim, getting emotional as he explains Evan could have an infection, autoimmune disease or even leukaemia.
