With her dad having failed to show up, Stu suggests Eliza get in the car so they can visit her mum. With Eliza uninterested, Stu loses his temper and points out that if her Dad cared about her at all, he wouldn’t continually let her down. Upset, Eliza dashes across the road where she’s knocked down by a car. As the driver speeds away, Stu rushes to Eliza who clutches her arm. In the hospital, Stu is forced to call Dom who arrives with a huge teddy. As Stu and Dom trade insults, Stu’s cut to the quick when Eliza asks him to leave. Alya assures him that Eliza will eventually see her Dad for who he is and when that happens, he’ll be there to pick up the pieces. But when Eliza announces that she wants to go and live with her Dad, Stu’s gutted whilst Dom does his best to cover his shock. 

Later, When Stu receives a call from the school telling him Eliza failed to turn up this morning, he’s deeply concerned, believing she’d gone in early. Stu arrives at Dom’s house and accuses him of kidnapping Eliza during the night. Eliza explains that she ran away by herself and this is now her home. Having been summoned by Stu, a social worker arrives with a police officer in tow, intent on talking to Eliza. Felicity tells Stu that it’s best Eliza stays at Dom’s house for now. Stu’s incensed and as the officer attempts to usher him away, Stu accidentally smacks him in the face. Dom watches with satisfaction as Stu is arrested for assault. 

The social worker calls at No.6 and tells Stu that Eliza wants to remain at her Dad’s. Stu’s gutted.
