They can change his medication and monitor him. Haz brings over Harold's favourite cake, black forest gateau to celebrate. Harold is grateful to them all.
MACKENZIE: We learnt from the best Harold.
Mackenzie hugs Harold and heads off to work. Mackenzie finishes her coffee and they laugh over the foam left on her face.
MACKENZIE: It's a fashion statement... I was once a model.
Karl apologises for not picking it up sooner but Harold brushes off his apology. Harold tells Karl not to shoulder the blame, it's a wake up call for Harold. He doesn't want to be a burden for Sky and Lana. He wants to put things into place while he still can. Karl nods in agreement.
