It's Cain's 40th birthday and he is grumpy, thinking no fuss has been made. What he doesn't know is that Moira is preparing a surprise party. Moira pulls together some surprises for Cain, who is bemused to turn up and find everyone with a mask of his face on. Unfortunately, Moira is nowhere to be seen and when Cain tries to call her, he is alarmed to get through to a nurse who explains that Moira has been run off the road. Meanwhile, when Vanessa loses patience with Kirin over his reluctance to move out as well as his attitude towards college and his father, she spontaneously dumps him. Later, Vanessa concedes that she may have overreacted and calls Kirin, suggesting he heads over to talk. A chuffed Kirin leaves the party he is at and gets into his car - fuelled with booze. Elsewhere, Cain is shocked to learn from Charity how Debbie is trying to force a confession in order to shop her to the police. Charity explains that DI Bails has a grudge against her and how she wishes she and Debbie were back on track again. Later, Charity tells Debbie and Pete the truth about DI Bails and what happened in their past. Charity's emotional account clearly has an impact on Debbie, but Charity realises she needs to do more. Also, Marlon is encouraged when April starts to decorate Donna's grave when the headstone arrives, but his mood changes when April spots Ross and is keen for him to help. Finally, Harriet feels for Ali's family over missing Rachel and suggests that she could use her old job contacts to help with the search, while Brenda goes public on Jimmy's big problem.
