To Adam's amazement, the new mature Alice has even come to terms with the Brian and Ruairi situation. She's even made up with Amy and they've agreed to disagree over the RAF. She plans to help the orphanage by getting things together to send them. Lucas's parents know a church in Bristol that sends out a container-load from time to time.
Brian tells David that he's making Adam and Debbie bosses of their own units. David thinks this is a big concession but Brian's just relieved that the situation is sorted and Ruairi's interests are protected.
Will resists Emma's instructions that George shouldn't be left alone with Nic but in fact Will plans to test Nic and tells her he needs to go into work. Nic's not happy that work's taking priority again. Hating himself for lying, Will tells Nic he won't be home till after the children have gone to bed but he sneaks back early to find the place in darkness.
Hearing George call out, Will bounds upstairs to see what's going on, and walks in on an idyllic sight. Everyone's curled up in bed together with Nic reading a story. Will's so relieved. Feeling guilty he kisses her and apologises for earlier, telling her she's brilliant.
