Hot this week

Sneak preview: we bring you the hottest highlights of the Shortland Street week ahead, right here.

Dr. Ethan Pierce (Owen Black) decides he wants to add more strings to his bow. Knowing that I.V. owner Kieran Mitchell (Adam Rickitt) is looking to open a second bar, Ethan tables a partnership with him as the ideal investment for them both.

Kieran flatly refuses. Little does he know that saying ‘no’ to Ethan, only adds fuel to the fire. Ethan decides that if Kieran won’t waver, he’ll outbid Kieran for the venue he has his eye on.

Faced with escalating costs, will Kieran fold and partner up with the persuasive Ethan, or will he chose to go head-to-head in a bidding war for the perfect bar?

It’s said that ‘a problem shared is a problem halved’. For Dr. Sarah Potts (Amanda Billing), disclosing her Multiple Sclerosis to husband TK Samuels (Benjamin Mitchell) seems to have only added to her burden.

Reeling from the shock of her illness, TK has gone into overdrive looking for ways to manage his precious wife’s symptoms. TK instigates step one – a diet. With wheat and diary now off the menu, Sarah is dismayed to realise that her favourite treat, chocolate, is a no-go too.

Daunted by a future devoid of the delicious luxuries, Sarah realises that something’s got to give. Will TK back down, or will Sarah have to face a life of sacrifice?

Since her return to Ferndale, nurse Tracey Morrison (Sarah Thomson) has often been heard to remark about her love life – or lack thereof.

When Tracey and good friend Dr. Kip Denton (Will Hall) share a casual drink after work it soon becomes clear that there’s a mutual attraction at play.

As more drinks are consumed and the flirting escalates, Kip makes a proposition. Will Tracey accept Kip’s brazen offer, or can she fight her desire and walk away?
