Episode Summary

Ellen has been up all night worrying about going back to the Ukraine. Abs offers to go with her to a meeting with immigration services but she declines. At work Abs persuades Tess to let Ellen finish early so she can make the meeting, he then gives her money to take a cab there. That evening, he finds Ellen crying in the flat. Abs says that is if will help her he will go to the Ukraine with her. She tells him she did not go to the meeting – the reason she is upset is that her father phoned her earlier. He is coming to England for a business meeting and he wants to see her.

A woman and her daughter climb into a window cleaner’s cradle so they can spy on McFly in their hotel room. The cradle gets stuck and the daughter falls, injuring her leg. Although he is terrified of heights, Harry has to absail from the roof down the outside of the hotel to treat the girl. Later, McFly visit the girl and her mother in hospital.

Charlie mentions that he will be 50 next week. He asks Bex to organise a party for him – she relishes the idea.

Claire’s brother Pete comes to meet with Comfort. Bex sees him and takes an immediate shine to him. Pete tells Comfort that they will be able to get Ruth out of the flat for now but it will be difficult to keep her out. Pete asks to see Comfort again, with all her paperwork so that he can determine the best course of action.

Sam finds Comfort and Fin’s marriage certificate in the locker room. He takes it and Comfort later finds him scribbling on it. She is furious and demands to know what he is doing. He says that he is altering it because it is inaccurate – they were never married. Comfort is outraged and tells him she should give him the beating his mother obviously never gave him. Tess sees and tells Comfort to leave Sam alone. She tells Comfort that she should not speak to her son like that and maybe when she gives birth to her own child she will understand what being a mother is like. Later she asks Sam if Comfort was telling the truth about him drawing on the certificate. He says that Comfort is lying and he did no such thing.
