Charlotte realises the intruder is her son Hunter, who confesses that he accidentally pushed Josh down the stairs. Ash thinks the break-in proves that Billie did not start the fire, but Kat is not convinced. Denny finds a positive pregnancy test, and Phoebe admits it is hers. She has not told Ash, because she does not know if the baby is his or Kyleʼs.
