In order to raise some cash for the deposit on the flat, Aidan decides to sell his car. Eva feels guilty, but her resolve hardens when Maria flashes him a wistful smile from across the street.
Later, Adam tries to blackmail Aidan over the photograph. When Aidan refuses to pay up, Adam orders him to tell Eva the truth. Eva stares at Aidan with her heart in her mouth – if she is ‘told’ about the affair, her revenge is over.
Elsewhere, clearly in a foul mood, Phelan heads out to price up a job. Seb is intrigued to see that Phelan has been Googling Nicola, his case manager. Having surveyed the new solicitors’ offices, Phelan breaks the news to Adam that the electrics will set him back £4,000. Phelan blames himself for coming on too strong and scaring Nicola away. At work, he has a go at Seb and tells him he is fired.
Also, after spending the night together, Brian and Cathy discuss possible nicknames for each other. Brian shows Cathy his megaphone, explaining that his council duties have expanded to include litter enforcement. As Brian takes up his litter enforcement role and berates Phelan for dropping a sweet wrapper, Cathy watches him admiringly.
