Mike is throwing a party to celebrate the end of exams and Beth begins to question her whole identity. Meanwhile, the future is still uncertain for Jamie and Laura, now officially a couple, and Janet has a surprise for Alan.
Danielle is Laura's best friend. Hedonistic and a bit selfish, Danielle got into irresponsible behaviour at an early age and has perfected the art. She is the epitome of the good time, party girl. She's profoundly bored by Laura's endless angsting over her pregnancy and thinks she should just get rid of it and 'come out on the lash'.
