Rhona admits she's thinking of dropping the charges against Pierce. As they walk to the bus stop, Emma tries to talk to Arthur about the video and lies that her manipulating Ashley was an advanced technique nurses use to asses how bad a patient's dementia is.

Emma manages to talk Arthur round by telling him they are talking about two different scales. She tries to persuade Arthur to bring her the video but Arthur won't.

Leyla and Megan's meeting with Debbie and Charity doesn't go well until Charity leaves. Drunk Chrissie asks Aaron if he ever thinks about his dad and if he worries that he's made from him. Aaron assumes Chrissie is referencing Robert and doesn't react well. Emma feigns an injury whilst out with Laurel and Lydia and runs back towards the village. Pierce tells Rhona she's making the right decision but Rhona insists that doesn't mean he's won or that she's scared of him. As she goes to leave, Rhona realises this hasn't effected Pierce's life at all.
