He's amazed at the package Claire has turned down and decides not to stand in her way. Todd and Karl get stuck in a lift together. Todd confides in Karl about kissing Nick.

Jason tells Bev that Charlie has a date. Bev quizzes Charlie and he insults her. Bev takes solace in a large vodka and determines to fight for her man. Bev staggers to the Barlows' house.
