CARLA FORCES PETER TO CONFRONT HIS DEMONS Sweating and shaking, Peter sits down and pens a letter to Simon. He then tells Carla he’d like to draw a line under their feud and he forgives her for sleeping with Adam. Carla’s relieved but when she sees Peter’s notebook, she’s horrified to realise it’s a suicide letter to Simon. Peter insists it’s not a suicide note, but a farewell letter as he’s come to accept that he’s dying. On a mission, Carla drags Simon round to No.1 where to Peter’s horror she reads out the letter. As a shaken Simon heads out, Carla begs Peter to save himself before it’s too late.
