Jake cracks a joke about the counsellor to help with Lauren's nerves, but she doesn't find it funny.

In the session, Lauren struggles to open up, but eventually her counsellor, Mary, breaks the ice. As Lauren confesses her fears and that she nearly drunk alcohol the other evening, Mary tells her she's come a long way because she spat the booze out.

Cheered after the chat, Lauren is secretly pleased when Jake has been waiting for her to finish, and he apologises for his joke, clearly smitten with Ms Branning.
