Quizzing Mick about splitting from Linda, tenacious Rainie reckons it could have something to do with a certain secret the couple have been keeping, talk of which throws Mick into meltdown and he collapses with a panic attack.

Nasty Neil is about to give Aaron a pasting only to be stopped by Harvey who finds him at the flat and chucks him out, but not before he issues a chilling threat to Dana Monroe (Barbara Smith) as payback. Scared for his sister, Aaron takes action and tries to turn the rest of the group against Neil, telling them he's too unstable to lead.

Dana confronts Aaron with the info which he twists and accuses her of being manipulated by Bobby.

After sleeping rough at the allotments Dotty begs Vinny for help, even offering to give their romance another go as an added incentive. Gullible Vin agrees to pay her rent then realises this is all a bit seedy and she's leading him on.
