As Evan prepares to launch his new novel, Alex's world comes crashing down - Alex basically becomes a clingy whinger like Evan did when Carmen broke up with him. She treats Evan like shit especially when she walks out of his read cos Rex paged her about a patient. He is hurt that when she gets drunk she suddenly loves him. Rex finally breaks up with her. Gabrielle sticks up for a boy getting beaten up at his employment (a car garage) and when she gets a bit fired up and threatens the employer, her boss gets angry and they ultimately sort things out with that URST firmly reignited.
