***Guest Starring Garry McDonald as Dr Phillip Noonan – Nina’s biological father!
A week after moving in with Patrick, Nina worries that living and working together is putting a strain on their relationship. Unconvinced Nina and Patrick’s space related issues are normal this early on; Billie assumes Nina’s brought up the topic of children. Nina’s adamant they haven’t broached the topic and Billie is surprised considering Nina’s a control freak and Patrick’s troubled past.
Later that night, Nina gets a surprise call from Dr Noonan hoping to catch up with Geraldine having now heard she’s single. Feeling the weight of her massive secret, Nina realises she has to tell Dr Noonan, he’s her father. Meeting at his clinic, Noonan is shocked by the revelation, but before he can digest the news he’s called away for an appointment.
Nina and Dr Noonan meet for dinner the next night and barely escape injury as their nerves and mutual clumsiness get the better of them. Nina connects with her father as he shares his tragic romantic history which like hers, features an unstable ex and emotionally crippling crush.
Nina returns home to tell Patrick of Noonan’s solitary life, admitting she’s a little disappointed he never had children and she has no new step brothers or sisters. The topic hangs in the air and Patrick asks Nina if she wants children.
Nina admits she does one day but Patrick, burdened by the weight of his past, can’t give her an answer. He just doesn’t know… When Billie is offered a guest speaker role at a real estate conference in New Zealand, she convinces Mick to join her for an all-expenses paid “honeymoon”. However Tim offers Mick a chance to work with an up and coming artist in Melbourne and Billie insists he stay and take the job.
