Janine tells Michael he can take the £450,000 in the suitcase and leave - does he want her, or the money? All of Janine's fears and suspicions start tumbling out. Calm, Michael admits he initially had one eye on the money but then fell in love with her. Michael insists all he wanted was to be equal partners, but she had to be in control. Eventually, Janine goes to bed; if she wakes up and the money's there, she'll know Michael loves her - if it's gone, she'll know he never did. Janine can't sleep. Finding Scarlett's cot empty, she rushes downstairs to find Michael comforting Scarlett and the money still there. Scathing, Michael tells her she has killed any real love he had for her - with Janine as a mother, what chance has Scarlett got? Michael goes out, and when he returns, Janine tells him she's relieving him of his duties as a husband. Emotional, she hands him Scarlett. Watching Janine drive away, Michael says 'I love you'.

She, Alfie and Tommy get into the Capri and drive away.
