He admits that the night Aaron hit Sandra, he hit him back and the pair had a big fight which he now regrets. Debbie is hurt by Charity's cold attitude towards her breakup. Charity explains that Debbie and Ross are just a younger version of herself and Cain and they're destined to make the same mistakes. She warns Debbie that she won't be able to get Ross out from under her skin while they're living in the same village. Cain informs Moira of the reason Debbie broke up with Ross. She admits that she knew Ross had a gun but Pete swore her to secrecy. Cain is angry that she didn't say anything. Chas and Gordon note how Aaron being the product of their spectacular breakup probably hasn't helped his mental state. Gordon reveals that his breakup with Sandra has taught him that people change.
