Joey and Carol meet Alice’s solicitor, Mark Sager. He tells them that Alice’s plea hearing is on the 24th December and he wants her to plead guilty to manslaughter, he can argue diminished responsibility and it could mean the difference between two and fifteen years in prison.

David grumbles to Carol about Max. In the office, Max finds Lauren’s drawing of a male figure in an apron and David asks if she’s got a new man.

Rose between his teeth, wearing only a Scarlett’s apron and socks, Jake tells Sadie he’s taken the restaurant job and starts next week. Laughing, he carries Sadie upstairs. Later, in the Square, Lauren approaches Jake. He tells her to back off and claims to Sadie she was asking about babysitting work. Sadie patronisingly assures Lauren they can help up her pocket money.
