Lilian goes with Matt to the police station. Matt promises he'll tell them everything. In the interview Matt explains how C3PL operated. They played by the rules, at the beginning. He trusted Chalky. Perhaps he was naïve. They ran into problems, and went bust. Ramsey shows Matt a letter to the bank from C3PL, which says there were no circumstances that might affect C3PL's financial position. Matt agrees he signed this letter, and he's been dishonest.

Tom's been out looking for Harry. Another gardener's complained. Pat shows Tom the newspaper, with the headline 'Boar on garden rampage'! Tom doesn't need this. Pat asks if he's spoken to Brenda but Tom says to leave it. Helen's told Pat that Tom's making progress with his business plan. He's sending it to the bank tomorrow. Pat is pleased that they are going ahead with the lagoon system.

While Matt's in the interview, Pat finds Lilian outside. Pat apologises for not calling round. Lilian tells Pat it's taken guts for Matt to own up. Pat says the family's behind her.

Matt eventually appears. Lilian's proud of him but Matt says his fate is sealed. And he's landed Chalky in it, which Chalky's not going to like.
