Tyrone lies saying that she must have pushed it through the door in the afternoon. Eileen and Sean hear the raised voices through the wall. Tyrone calls in the café desperate for a private word with Fiz. Roy allows them to use the flat. Tyrone asks Fiz to back up his story regarding the card but Fiz refuses to pander to Kirsty, pointing out that she's destroying Tyrone's life. Kirsty tells Julie about Fiz's birthday card to Tyrone, painting her as a mad stalker. Julie's sympathetic. Kirsty and Tyrone meet with the Vicar. Tyrone talks about his rotten childhood and becomes emotional. The Vicar gives them his blessing. Kirsty and Tyrone push Ruby round the park. Kirsty notices a toy from Ruby's mobile is missing. Tyrone unwittingly mentions Molly, his ex-wife, and Kirsty's mood immediately darkens. Roy finds a toy from Ruby's mobile in his flat. Back at work, Kirsty calls Tyrone and apologises for her earlier black mood, explaining how she used to go to the park to escape her violent father. Kirsty calls in the café and berates Fiz for sending Tyrone a birthday card. Whilst there, she spots the toy from Ruby's mobile. With growing anger, Kirsty realises Tyrone must have paid Fiz a visit that morning. Kirsty arrives home quietly seething and confronts Tyrone with the toy. Realising its significance, Tyrone tries to make out he went to see Fiz simply to tell her to stay away. But calling him a liar, Kirsty flies into a rage and traps Tyrone's arm in the door and repeatedly slams the door on him. In agony, Tyrone runs from No.9. Fiz takes Tyrone into the empty café and nurses his poorly arm. She's horrified at the extent of his injuries. Tyrone breaks down declaring that he can't take any more.
