Matt is charged with the fraud offences. He makes no response and his bail is renewed. Russell tells Matt to stay positive. Matt insists on knowing the worst-case scenario and is horrified to discover it's ten years.

At the Bull, Jolene asks Wayne why he's hiding upstairs. They're busy. Wayne says he can't come down. He and Fallon have had words and Fallon didn't say anything he didn't deserve. He's been a terrible father. Wayne shows Jolene ticket stubs from two Lies gigs he went to last year. He hid at the back because he didn't want to show Fallon up. Jolene tells Wayne it isn't easy for Fallon. He left her as a child. Wayne thinks he'll never put it right, but Jolene says he can try, and gives him a hug before hastily retreating downstairs.

At Grey Gables, Roy tells Matt to leave, as he's drunk. Matt says he'll soon be in prison. Roy's sympathetic, but insists he leave. Roy helps Matt towards the front door, as Lilian appears, to Matt's surprise. Roy explains what's going on. Lilian takes Matt back to the Dower House and puts him on the sofa. Matt tells Lilian he's missed her.
