When Carl suggests using Cossack, Edna awkwardly refuses and suggests he speak to Tom for a reason. When Carl questions Tom, firm that he doesn't tell Matthew, he reveals that Sadie is coming to collect Cossack tomorrow. Carl is uneasy about keeping Matthew in the dark but Tom knows it's for the best and Carl is eventually won round. Worried about a chance meeting between Sadie and Matthew, Tom hands invitations for a golf tournament to Matthew and Carl for the following day. Matthew is suspicious but agrees to go. Martin's 'shabby chic' causes hassle for Louise and Diane. Louise is perturbed when Martin brings in an exercise bike and puts it in the backroom. Diane tells Louise she doesn't want to get showered with sweat every time she goes in the backroom. Louise agrees. Later that day Louise tells Martin that the bike will have to go as Diane isn't happy. Martin tells Louise that Diane doesn't even live there and he won't move it out of principle. Hiding that she agrees with Diane, Louise tells Martin she doesn't want to cause more arguments with Diane. With the deed done Louise tells Diane that the bike has gone. Diane is grateful that they are keeping the backroom how she likes it. Bristled by Diane's bizarre 'territorialness', Louise makes it clear that if she had liked the bike it would've stayed. Later, Martin reveals to Louise that he has found a solution and that the bike is now in their bedroom. Andy promises to be there for Katie.

Back in the village with Diane, Jack racks his brain about what he can do to stop Andy getting in too deep with Katie. Ordering him not to interfere, Diane shuts Jack down. Later at the hospital Andy is visiting Katie again. Katie is teary as she tells Andy that the police admit they are still drawing blanks in trying to track her mum down.
