The embarrassment of the night before haunts Robert, but Jack is about to make him face his demons. Hangover or no hangover, he orders Robert to go to work - but only after apologising to Maggie. After a stern dressing down, Robert is left hanging his head in shame as word of his exploits spread through the village. In a bid to completely clear his conscience, he arms himself with a bunch of flowers and visits Nicola in a bid to make up for throwing up on the carpet. But Nicola proves to be a lot more understanding than Maggie and, after offering Robert a sympathetic ear - she goes on to offer him a whole lot more. Marlon is tense as he prepares for yet another dinner with Tricia and Rhona at the same table so, at Bob's suggestion, he decides to invite Emily and Paddy to help lighten the atmosphere. But they are unable to make it and Marlon is left hoping that Tricia can keep her jealousy in check. Zoe bids a sad farewell to her friend Mel as she transfers to a private clinic with Chris. But her upbeat mood is soon blunted by the realities of the outside world. Paddy's frustration with Nicola grows as it becomes obvious that she sees his house as her home.
