Elsewhere, Ruby tells Caitlin about Dylan’s hurtful outburst. Enraged, Caitlin confronts Eve and tells her some harsh home truths about her son and his shocking attitude.

Eve goes to see Ruby and apologies for Dylan’s actions – both women can’t fathom what’s made mild-mannered Dylan behave so badly.

Later, Eve tries to reason with Dylan but ends up on the receiving end of a tirade of abuse. Enraged by his mother’s reaction, Dylan storms over to the Tall Ship to confront Ruby, only to come face-to-face with a no-nonsense Caitlin who is shocked by his poisonous views of women.

Stevie tries to hide the truth about his new job from Scarlett. However, when she discovers the drugs he’s delivering for Tyler, Scarlett tells her son he can’t stay under her roof anymore.
