Max arrives; he and Carl argue until Patrick intervenes. Carl steals Max’s mobile and confirms he called the police. Walking home, Max and Kirsty’s anger turns to passion.

At the singles night, Kat’s bored but AJ (Clint) and Bianca conspire to find each other a partner. The woman Bianca finds isn’t interested in AJ but Bianca’s quite taken with AJ’s choice, Colin.
