The Reporter's front page story divides the country, most against the decision to print it especially in light of what happened to Saif as a result of supporters of the story taking action. Some even in Max's own figurative house take issue with his decision to run the story. Because of Saif, the Prime Minister and Angela Howard have to decide whether to continue campaigning during the sensitive time period. Maggie, who is moving on with what little time she has left of her life, still tries to convince Kathryn to change her mind about letting Caden tell his story, Kathryn letting Caden make the choice for himself. Orla opening up about what is truly troubling her may help Caden make his decision. One of Max's actions as a follow-up of sorts to the story may be the last straw for Lauren, who is told in no uncertain terms that if she walks out, she will be locked out forever. Kathryn is also aware that Max's response if Caden does come clean will be something that no one will see ... Written by Huggo
