Frankie is put on the spot when she's asked to delve into her night terrors and the heartbreaking depictions in her art.

Darren is soon horrified to find out Morgan has been sick and now can't be roused from her sleep. Frankie comes clean to JJ, admitting she gave the baby antihistamines so that Nancy wouldn't leave her room.

JJ insists he will keep his sister's secret – no matter what happens to Morgan – but warns her there will be consequences for hiding the truth. The pair let Nancy and Darren believe their half-sibling Oscar accidentally gave Morgan the medicine.

At the hospital, Misbah tells Darren that Morgan had an overdose but will be fine. Frankie continues to struggle with her guilt, even telling JJ she won't perform at a dance recital if he attends.

Later, Donny Clark catches Frankie trying to steal some cash from the marketplace. Mercedes McQueen and Maxine Minniver manage to convince Donny not to press charges, but Frankie is still banned from the market.

At home, Nancy remains deeply concerned about the possibility of Oscar medicating his sister. As Frankie breaks down and begs Nancy for money, her stepmum gives her a lecture on resilience.

This emotional exchange is overheard by Charlie Dean, drawing more suspicion about what's truly going on with Frankie.

The scenes air next week.
