But Sarahs got a surprise for her boss. She hands Alya a DVD and explains that a student dropped it in. Its a recording of an interview with Aidan where he discusses donating his kidney to Carla.
A shaken Alya watches the DVD and realises just how much Aidans family meant to him. A preview clip shows a despondent Alya sitting in her office. Shes moved by the DVD and wonders what shes doing with Underworld, as Aidan loved the Connors so much.
Next week, Alya delights Carla after telling her that shell sell Underworld but Carla struggles to get the required money together.
