Chesney returns the stolen laptop to Daniel and he’s thrilled. Paul asserts that he wants to see Kel behind bars, and that he’s ready to make a statement.

TYRONE AND FIZ PLAY INTO JADE’S HANDS Tyrone and Fiz are horrified to realise the fire must’ve been started by Hope. Jack reveals that when he and Hope entered the backyard, the fire had already started. Fiz breaks down, admitting to Tyrone that she was probably behind the factory fire too.
