Rodney finds Nicola and asks to hear the entire truth about her and Ivan. Nicola panics but manages to keep cool and retells her lie. When Rodney asks how many times she slept with Ivan, Nicola, keen to sully Ivan, insists it was more than once and was a full blown affair. To induce sympathy she repeats her vulnerability. Nicola is aghast as Rodney reckons she must have known what she was doing and how she'd hurt Paul.
