Hayley accuses Roy of being ashamed of her. Des is cold towards Samantha, unsure if she's being unfaithful or not. She worries that he's found out but refuses to admit to any guilt. Deirdre tells Mike she realised that running away wasn't the answer. Gail is bemused when Roy accepts her invitation to tea but insists they eat in the cafe. Mike pays for a better barrister for Deirdre as he feels she deserves better than a legal aid one. Curly receives an anonymous letter saying Log poured on the antifreeze. He realises that Toyah wrote it in the hope of having Log arrested and tells her that unless she can prove it she should keep her thoughts to herself, otherwise he'll get the police involved. Ken agrees to do one last escorting job for Alec. Samantha tells Chris they should stop seeing each other for a bit as Des is too suspicious. Spider is shocked when Emily tells him that she knows he smokes pot and demands he and Log hand their supply over, in case the police call over the antifreeze. She flushes it all away. Deirdre is amused when Ken tells her that he's a male escort. Spider tells Toyah they can only ever be friends; she's too young for him. Roy entertains the Platts and Hayley to a meal at the cafe. He worries that Hayley will let slip about her sex and is relieved when it goes well. Samantha accuses Des of checking up on her.
