Kenton's unhappy that Emma is leaving Jaxx. Kathy predicts he'll be very busy until he finds a replacement. It'll give him less time for stupid ideas like getting a tattoo. Ruth points out drily that at least it's cheaper than wanting a sports car. But Kenton seems determined to press ahead with the tattoo.
Kathy calls Lorna to ask if she had interviewed any candidates who might be able to replace Emma at Jaxx. And she also asks for a small favour.
Roy apologises to Tom for Mike's comments the day before. He asks Tom if there's any chance he and Brenda can work things out. Tom doubts it. He's in the biggest mess of his life financially and the person he trusted most in the world helped put him there. After all they've said to each other, he doesn't think there's any way back.
Brenda too tells Roy she fears Tom will never be able to sort things out with her. She's blown it. Later she tells Tom she's sorry she let him down. But she's assures him he'll find a way out. So many people believe in him; someone will be more use to him than she was.
