At Tuesday clinic, Shelagh and Joyce oversee the care of Edna Bristow, a heavily pregnant mother of one, whose husband has left her just days before their baby is due.

Meanwhile, Violet considers running for mayor and is somewhat preoccupied with her application. She fails to notice that Fred isn't his usual cheery self.

But things take a turn for the worse when Trixie makes a serious mistake with far-reaching consequences.
