Holly's need for a fix is increasing and Moira can't bear to see her in pain. Giving Holly the last of the wrap, she's terrified when Adam and John come upstairs and Holly spills it over the carpet in the panic. They don't suspect anything, but John feels they've moved on a step and wants to take the bolt off Holly's door. Agreeing to a compromise, they leave the room but Holly is in distress about the lost fix. Feeling like an addict herself, Moira goes off to buy more drugs. However, when the police pull her over for a routine pre-Christmas drink driving inspection, they sense her anxiety and when she's forced to turn out her pockets, she's arrested for possession. Meanwhile, Ella invites Alicia to have breakfast following Alicia's night with Declan. However, it's too awkward and Alicia makes her excuses, telling Declan she had fun but his home life is too weird. Declan assures Ella that he's only just begun having fun and he doesn't intend to stop soon. Elsewhere, Aaron is shocked when Paddy tells him that Rhona is pregnant but is happy to discover there is still a place for him at Smithy Cottage; Maisie tells Nikhil that she doesn't regret last night but they should take things one day at a time; Bob's thrown when Viv invites herself on his outing with the kids to see Santa; and Adam takes an instant shine to flirty and feisty Mia, despite his relationship with Scarlett.
