Deirdre stays the night on the settee at No.1 as she feels Ken needs her support. Dev tells Deirdre she's welcome back to his flat for as long as she likes. Geena is furious with Dev and tells him that Deirdre has to go. Dev changes his tune and tells Deirdre that he really thinks it would be a shame if she and Ken split up. Dev encourages Deirdre to talk to Ken and try and sort things out. Mike and Adam start getting to know one another. Adam tells Mike that he would like to go to a different school. Emma tells Charlie that she is not even going to tell Curly about Ryan holding her hostage as it would only worry him. Charlie tells Matt about the incident. Linda realises that there is something up with Ryan and manages to get the whole story out of him. Linda goes to see Emma and Emma assures her that she is not going to report Ryan as long as he stays away from her and the house. Ken cooks Deirdre a meal as they need to talk. She agrees to move back in but then Ken ruins everything by saying that it will be better when she moves back in as they will have a better chance of appealing against the Judge's decision over Adam. She accuses Ken of being obsessed with Adam and storms out.
