Winners & Losers
After Matt’s horrific death, everyone is expecting Bec to fall apart, but she shows no overt sign of grief. Instead, she pastes on a brave face and displays an unnerving vigilance towards Harrison, not even letting Doug look after him. Jenny’s adjusting to family life in the wake of the Sam bombshell as the Gross house vibe has changed markedly.
