Once she's taken to hospital, Nicola is seen surrounded by her husband Jimmy, Laurel, Bernice and Rodney who anxiously wait for her to tell them more about what happened.
A groggy Nicola wakes up and Jimmy questions her but she lies, making out that she doesn't remember who even attacked her, embarrassed to have been targeted by a gang of teen girls.
But Gaby soon finds a video of Nicola's attack and Jimmy's heart breaks for her as he realises how hard it has been for his wife to admit teenage girls attacked her.
Nicola later recounts the details of her attack during a conversation with Harriet and opens up.
