Simon is gutted when Peter lies that he dropped his phone in a puddle and had to chuck it away, but he’s mollified when Peter gives him money to buy a new one. As he is reconnected by his provider, Simon accesses his missed messages, including a voicemail from last Monday where a panicky Peter apologises for messing up again and insists he’s got to get away. Simon is rocked by the implications of Peter’s words.
Later, Mackinnon intercepts Peter and Daniel at the hospital and explains that Ken is refusing to see any members of his family.
Meanwhile, Sinead is dismayed when Beth reveals how she was drunkenly wishing Ken dead last night. Sinead vows never to drink again, but Beth’s secret fears remain. Later, Mackinnon takes Daniel to one side to ask him about his mum.
