Ethan is stunned to overhear a conversation between Ruby Fox-Milligan (Beth Cordingly) and Rose (Christine Tremarco).

Determined to use his last hours of freedom wisely, Ethan confides in dad Charles Anderson (Kevin Mathurin) about his concerns for Dawn Fletcher (Olivia Bromley).

Charles encourages Ethan to talk to Dawn, and he leaves her a voicemail. Ethan and Charles share a heartfelt conversation as they prepare for Ethan's court hearing.

But Charles is frantic when he returns from the kitchen to find that Ethan has suddenly collapsed on the floor, following the recent hit and run.

Manpreet Sharma (Rebecca Sarker) tries in vain to resuscitate Ethan, and a terrified Charles fears the worst. Meanwhile, Dawn is concerned after hearing Ethan's message, but will Ethan live to tell her what he knows?

Speaking about the horrifying moment that Charles finds Ethan unconscious, Mathurin said: "He just goes into emergency mode. He's panicking, Charles knows a bit of CPR but obviously, Ethan's not responding so he's relieved that Manpreet shows up.

"Due to the time lapsed, Charles is a bit more distressed and panicked about the situation."
