It's the day of the big party at Home Farm and Chris is plotting to use the occasion to discover once and for all who Charity is seeing behind his back. All six supects - Sean, Terry, Rodney, Marlon, Scott and Andrew - are there and Chris plans on trying to get the better of each and everyone of them until he can pinpoint Charity's lover. Zak and Cain have their own idea of how to make the party go with a bang. They menacingly decide to visit Home Farm in a bid to wreak vengeance on the Tates for Butch's death but are forced to get physical sooner than they had planned when they are discovered breaking in. Chris is relieved when Charity shows up but temperatures start to rise when she gets close to Scott and arranges a secret rendezvous with Rodney. As the party goes with a swing, Tara gets wind that Charity is planning to meet Rodney and tips off Chris. Chris hides in the shadows, waiting for Charity to show up - unaware she is in the drawing room with her lover all along - Zoe!
