Shortland Street on TV2

7:00pm Monday, August 29 on TV2

Zlata’s (Kate Elliott) true character is revealed this week on Shortland Street when Luke Durville (Gerald Urquhart) hosts a dinner party to introduce his fiance to his friends.

With the dinner party imminent, a nervous Luke asks Bella (Amelia Reid) if she will help with the cooking, hoping Bella’s assistance will impress his guests.

Reluctantly agreeing, Bella is shocked when Zlata fakes a sickness to get out of helping. Calling her on her behaviour, Bella is stunned when Zlata breaks down, admitting her worry of what Luke’s friends will think of her.

Realising she may have misjudged the girl, Bella steps up to the plate and is warmed by Luke’s appreciation.
