Bethany is distraught with her actions and admits to Audrey that she’s in love with Daniel and she blames herself for taking advantage of him when he was clearly in turmoil. At the flat Sinead reaches for her notebook only to find that it’s Bethany’s notebook which she left behind. Sinead opens it and starts reading. Daniel returns home and Sinead reveals that she’s read Bethany’s short story and it’s clear she’s in love with him. Daniel tries to deny there’s any truth in it but Sinead suspects he’s lying. Sinead begs Daniel to be honest with her.
David denies any involvement with Josh’ attack. David swears to Shona that the assault on Josh had nothing to do with him. A horrified Max shows Shona a video that someone’s sent him of the prison riot. The video clearly shows Josh collapsing from a stab wound and David nearby. Shona reels.
Daniel and Bethany are in turmoil about their shared moment. Daniel swears to Sinead that it meant nothing but she can’t look at him. A furious Craig bundles him out of the door. Beth hurries up to the flat to check on Sinead. Having been summoned by Beth, Dr Gaddas tends to Sinead and assures her that whatever has happened with Daniel, she’s deeply loved and Bertie needs her. An angry Craig confronts Bethany and tells her he’s disgusted with her behaviour. Adam finds Daniel in the ginnel, drunk and in self destruct mode. Peter and Carla return from Italy and call at No.1 with a present for Ken. They’re interrupted by a clearly worried Adam who tells them about Daniel’s state of mind.
Max recognises Josh in the video and wonders if it was David who attacked him. Sarah and Shona secretly wonder the same thing. Marion collects Max to spend the afternoon with him. David calls Shona from prison. He’s horrified to hear that Max has seen the video but swears that he had nothing to do with the attack on Josh. Shona’s unsure what to believe.
Imran visits David in prison and tells him about the video which is doing the rounds and clearly implicates him in Josh’s stabbing. David swears he wasn’t to blame.
