Determined not to let the revelations of the past days rock his world, he demands to know what Charity is going to do about the situation. But Charity is determined to get Debbie out of her life as quickly as possible as she has no maternal feelings what so ever. She knows she will have to tread carefully or the whole village could find out! Having agreed to meet Debbie and take her out for a drive, Charity puts on a brave face, as she prepares to let Debbie down gently.

Debbie fears she is losing her adoptive mother, but has just found Charity and is now being forced to move away. Emily mistakes her tears for remorse over Pat's illness.
