Abs attends the funeral of his brother, Danny, having been persuaded by Tess to go. It seems that nobody wants him there, not even his mother, Sheila, from whom he is estranged. In her opinion, Abs is the reason Danny is dead. Danny ended up in a wheelchair because of Abs’s joyriding, which then drove him to drink.

He has to be taken to hospital, where Abs tries to talk to him about his drinking.
Later, Abs returns to the wake to resolve issues with his mother. He also decides he wants to start an alcohol clinic, having promised Ellie he will try to help Stacey.Elsewhere, Alice and Kelsey go on an internet double date, but Kelsey’s guy arrives too late and sees her disappearing as she goes off dancing with a friend.
