Amy Mitchell has been feeling low, particularly after she made plans to sleep with her then-boyfriend Denzel Danes (played by Jaden Ladega).
This triggered all sorts of rumours and Denzel was even attacked by Amy’s father Jack Branning.
Overwhelmed, Denzel escaped from the drama by breaking up with Amy, which led to her spiralling even further.
Next week, however, he tries to raise her spirits, only to be brushed off.
Patrick has some words of wisdom for Denzel as he struggles to cope with the unfolding situation with Amy and all the gossip surrounding her.
Howie watches on, wishing he could reach through to his son as easily as Patrick.
But the pair soon hatch a plan together to try and get Denzel to open up.
In later scenes, Denzel is at a loss when the internet is down and Patrick and Howie convince him to play dominoes to pass the time.
The conversation soon turns to Amy and Denzel lets his guard down.
The youngster talks about his complicated feelings until Kim Fox (Tameka Empson) breaks the mood by storming in and turning the router back on.
Denzel is aghast, realising the men tricked him.
Meanwhile at the Branning’s , things are a lot more tense as Amy shuts down and has no intention of reaching out for support.
