'Alex is feeling confused and rejected by Evan. The friendship that has always been so strong seems to be evaporating.

'Miranda prepares for her opening night of 'The Seagull', while Richie prepares to leave the flat they've shared together for three years.

'Kelly runs into Nathan, a former client at the 'Get Personal' introduction agency. She's surprised by how little she actually knew about him — and how much she likes him.

'Sam asks Will if he loves her, and he playfully says no. Then soon afterwards, suddenly, horribly, Sam is hit by a car and killed. Will's world tumbles down all around him as he struggles to absorb the devastating loss. The others gather around one another, tensions and disagreements forgotten, as they acknowledge how much they cherish each other and reflect on the fragility of life.

'Filled with self-loathing, Will picks a fight with a beefy guy and ends up in hospital. Alex patches him up.'
