All this way and you ain't coming in?
You wanted answers.
Woah! Woah, what are you doing?!
The scan shows the size of the blood clot has increased.
Tyler needs it removed, to ease the pressure on his brain and hopefully, avoid brain damage.
-Can't you wait? My dad's not here...
-It needs to be done urgently.
Answers, you said.
What is this place?
All right, Dad? Hey!
Meet your brother.
Look, just say you were at the fight, right,
but you had to leave on an emergency.
You are a registered boxing medic, right?
Yeah. Well, how much?!
Yeah, well, it'll have to be.
-ROCK MUSIC PLAYS
-Damien. Hey, what's up? What's up?
Guess which one this is.
-Michael. The rock star.
-I said he THINKS he's a rock star.
-Are you hungry?
-He made me dinner once, I was sick for days.
-You asked for that paella.
I asked for pie!
I hate seafood.
Why don't you show Michael some of your frogs?
He's obsessed by them. Got nearly 100.
-Only one favourite, though. Eh, Craig?
-You've only just met him.
-You are having a laugh,
you bring me to meet a half-brother and I'm not supposed to be angry?!
Don't talk about him like that!
Dad gets me one every time he goes away.
Craig's not your half-brother.
He's your mum's. And mine.
Just like you.
Except he isn't like me, is he?
So what, did you have a win on the gee-gees?
That's a lot of cash for two pints of milk and a chamois leather.
-Entertaining a client.
-Good for you. Keep the customers happy.
If anyone can, I can.
Yeah, I met a very unhappy customer outside earlier.
Said he bought a vehicle off you last week with dodgy electrics.
Oh, the blue coupe?
-Well, it's covered by his warranty.
-Max is gonna be real chuffed, you know, the way you've been taking care of things.
-He should be.
There's something a bit iffy here.
-Yeah, he said he paid £4,800 for that coupe.
And here it's written 4-3.
I can understand 3 and 8 - they look similar, eh? It's a mistake.
Got expenses of my own.
All having it a little bit hard, ain't we, at the minute?
Well, go on then, talk.
-It ain't stealing!
-No. It's fraud and it's deception!
I'm working here, all the hours, making sure this place ticks over for Max and where is he?
In some Jacuzzi in Vegas. I've earned it!
I don't think the Old Bill are gonna think that.
-Don't be stupid, Jack. I'm gonna pay it back!
Well, I dunno. But look I'm begging you, mate! Course I am.
What's Jodie gonna say about this, eh?
Tell Michael what you know about your family, Craig.
Frankie went out with a footballer so she used to be a WAG.
He played for Brentford, Craig. He's hardly Ronaldo.
What about Anthony?
He's allergic to dust and cat hair.
Dad says you lived in Spain...
Did you never just think to introduce us? Sunday afternoons, a burger place, normal family stuff?
When your mum died...
..I wasn't what Craig needed.
I got letters from his carers, but I stayed away.
-Then when Colleen and I spilt...
-Yeah, you picked up where you left off, didn't you?
I thought I was ready to be a good dad to him.
Lucky him. And it's only now, years later, you decide we should meet?
It's all right. I was fine.
I tried! Many times.
-But everybody seemed happy, I didn't want to destroy that.
Don't get me wrong, Craig, I'm thrilled for you, toy frogs, afternoons out, lovely.
But it was never like that for me.
-I did my best.
-You did nothing!
You were a useless husband and a useless father!
I thought meeting him would help you understand.
No. You flung him in a home so you could carry on lying and cheating on my mum.
-No wonder she topped herself!
-If I hear you snivel on about Saint Maggie one more minute,
I'll squeeze every last breath out of your sorry throat!
-Why are you saying that about Mum?
This was stupid.
I should never have done this.
Get me a beer.
Two beers. And a whisky.
-Actually, a double whisky.
I reckon we should probably work out what to do before you're too drunk to have a coherent thought.
You should make her a mix-tape, man!
Stick some slow jams on it, you know,
# Baby, I promise, that I'll stay true. #
I think a letter is probably the best option here. Stating what you'll do to redeem yourself.
But I don't think I can redeem myself now.
Listen, 'nuff girls'd love you stealing to pay for their big fat wedding, man.
It's like Robin Hood or that highway man with the mask and that.
Yeah, it is quite romantic.
She turns up at jail in her huge dress, crying till her eyes are crusty.
And you're stoical, you know?
# I did it for you. #
Tamwar, this ain't some terrible Ashton Kutcher film!
I love Jodie and I don't know what I'd do without her. And if this is over...
Hey, hey, hey. It's not over till the Fatboy sings, and...
Yeah, but boys she didn't find it romantic, you know, she found it disgusting.
To be fair, she has made some outrageous demands. Like, she told Afia not to wear purple.
She told me not to speak to any of her family, till they were drunk.
She told me not to speak at all.
Which makes my best man's speech a bit of a challenge.
Look man, she'll calm down, all right. You know, just apologise, promise to pay Max back
and it'll be cool man, trust me.
Jodie loves you.
-I'll kill him!
-Imagine, right, if he only paid for the top half of the dress
and like one course of the sit-down meal...
Look, you've lost the plot. You've bought into all this guff about weddings.
You ain't a princess, I'm sorry to break it to you, but you're a partly-qualified
beautician from Essex.
Can we leave Essex out of this?
Look, Darren obviously felt he needed to buy all the fluff to prove that he does deserve you.
-It is quite romantic, really.
-Let's see how romantic you feel
-when you're having conjugal visits down Wormwood Scrubs!
-And you've said the wedding's off?
Oh, seems a bit of a waste.
-Darren going to jail and you not getting your big day.
-Oh, look, do you love him?
I don't even know any more.
Right, well till he risked his job, his friendship with my dad and a criminal record
just to buy you a stupid dress and feed 100 people he barely knows, did you love him?
Till it hurts to breathe.
-A little perspective, please!
If he stole to pay for one day, how's he gonna support you for the rest of your life?
You can't trust anyone.
But he makes her laugh, don't he make you laugh, Jode?
-Yeah, so she buys a Lenny Henry DVD and finds herself a real man who can look after her!
-Just stop it!
Let's go to the hospital.
Well, cos if you see Tyler's all right, then I think you'll feel better.
Craig, what I said to you earlier, about you and about this place
it was disgusting and I'm sorry.
We don't share my inability to forgive then.
You're happy here, on your own?
I've got loads of mates.
You're OK not meeting your family?
Dad says we'll meet up one day, all of us.
Do you remember our mum?
You think Dad'll be all right?
I bet you think I'm a right idiot, don't you?
You're the eldest.
You're the one Dad kept.
Have you still got one of these?
High five, brother.
Jodie, look, can I have two minutes, please.
He won't leave if you don't.
Look, I've thought of something that explains what I did.
-There's no explanation.
-It's like war. And war's terrible and people die.
-But if it's done for the right reason...
-It's called collateral damage.
-And how's that acceptable?
It's not. But me thieving off Max was me going to war for you.
I'd take on a whole army just to make you happy.
Soldiers are very brave.
Can I get you a drink?
-Hot chocolate, yeah?
Hey. I came to see if you was all right after yesterday.
Yeah. You know, there's a whole heap of madness happening with Darren and Jodie
and I'm glad kind of glad I'm out of it really. Marriage.
You don't mean that.
Come on, I'm not being nasty, I'm really not, but I've only got one word for Mercy.
And that's au revoir. Bye bye.
-Hold tight, Whitney knows French!
-Ooh la la!
-No, I'm being serious, if she can't see what you're worth,
then she's gonna need her eyes fixed or her head tested.
Well, look, you know where I am, OK.
So, don't sit inside stressing by yourself, all right?
All right. Just holler at your boy.
What if I'd done what you said and gone home?
-Where have you been?!
You wanna know where Tyler is? He's in there, having an operation to save his life.
No, not yet! But he could be.
Dad, I was scared. I was scared, and where were you?
-I needed to be on my own.
-Whilst your son is in that state?!
Have you seen Darren? Only he could get lost in a place where there's massive arrows everywhere.
I'm sorry. How are you?
Every time they tell me something new, it's...
it's worse than I could've ever thought of.
I just can't...
I can't imagine him not being here.
Me too. Come here.
-Why didn't you tell Anthony about Craig?
-It's what I do.
-Start by telling the truth for a change.
Cos if I'd been waiting for those answers, I'd be waiting my whole life.
You haven't even explained to me why you put Craig into care. Cos even to a...
a rubbish dad like me, that's pretty lame.
Or maybe he's not good enough for the great Eddie Moon.
-Thought so. Here we go. Blame her again.
-She couldn't cope with either of you!
You're trying to hurt me.
That's twisted but that's just how you are.
She wasn't right.
She neglected you both.
I remember her.
I remember her...
chasing mice round the flat with my cricket bat...
..screaming her head off.
And helping me get worms for my fishing.
And even now, when I smell her perfume on someone...
SNAPS HIS FINGERS
..I'm right back there,
sitting on her lap again, listening to her sing Clash records.
It wasn't her who dug the worms out of the mud.
It was me, Michael!
I used to take you fishing down the canal!
Can't you remember?
I Wanna Riot.
-She loved that song.
She smashed up our radio up cos the DJ spoke over the start of it.
What about you?
What about you?
Did you ever hit her, Dad?
You got a temper on you.
-Shacked up with a mad bird... drove you to it, I suspect.
-It was like a sick game.
Who could hurt who.
-You destroyed her.
-We destroyed each other!
Well, you won. Cos you're here!
That day, she wanted you to find her.
She was angry with me, raging. Maybe I looked at a waitress the wrong way.
She said she was going to do something big, make me sorry.
She knew you were playing out in the yard
and you'd soon be in for your dinner.
She wanted her six-year-old to find her corpse?
It was a stunt!
attention, I dunno.
She thought you'd find her
and call 999, to get help.
I kept playing.
And dinner got burnt...
And I came in too late.
Would you let Vanessa and Jodie loose on yours then, would you?
You two seen Fatboy? Or Tamwar?
Have you been to the hospital?
Yeah, I did, best hour of my life(!)
-Right, well how's Tyler?
-Not good, from what I heard.
He's having an op to fix the bleeding on his brain.
You OK? Where you going?
-Hold up. I'm coming.
Why didn't you tell me what she was really like?
To protect you.
I thought if I kept everything separate, I could keep you all safe.
Craig from rejection.
You from the truth about your mother.
Your plan didn't work though, did it? Craig's missed out on a family and I...
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I get it, I've ruined all of us.
-Tyler's out of surgery. We've removed the clot, which we're very happy about.
-Honestly, thank you...
Well, we'll monitor Tyler asleep for the next 12 to 24 hours.
And when we wake him, we'll be able to see if there's any damage to the brain.
The brain underneath looks healthy at the moment.
So try and focus on the fact that we're through the worst.
-I have to go. Sorry.
I have to go.
You were right.
You'd all be better off without me.
To the happy couple. Congratulations!
Ahh! Well, catch up, girl.
Ain't you got a fancy wedding to pay for?
Ain't you heard? Been bleeding your old man dry for weeks. I'm loaded.
Well, he shouldn't have just gone off, then, should he?
You feeling oblivious yet?
-To oblivion then.
MONITOR BEEPS STEADILY
Impossible to keep you down, you said.
Cos I'll just keep getting back up. But look at you.
I've brought you these...
Hope you ain't lost your appetite.
Cos I'll probably eat 'em all... and I've already got two fillings.
Get up, Tyler. Please?
Tyler, please get up.
I've just spoken to Craig, he said can you get him a frog made out of chocolate.
He saw them on the telly.
How about my mum?
-They weren't all lies, were they?
-She was beautiful.
And funny. And wild.
But we were like a lethal cocktail.
Hurricane meeting a tornado.
All those years, of me punishing you,
no wonder you despised me.
I was able to make a fresh start.
I'm not that man.
Your moods, your temper...
One walking bad memory.
I don't hate you, I...
But you were right...
It's too late.
You're actually quite a laugh when you're drunk, Lauren.
-Well, I always find you funny.
-Oh, cheers. Is that you being smart, is it?
So sharp I'll cut myself, Mum says.
A woman so thick that she cheated on a gorgeous bloke with a bald clown
who treated her like a doormat for years.
Max and Tanya, ain't it? You know, Tanya and Max.
They love each other. He's like a dad to me. And I'll never mug him off. Never.
Right. If Jodie don't want you, and I never thought I'd say this...
but it's her loss, innit. Wait, no...
You know, that's the same with Ryan. I've always said it, you're just too good for him!
You are! I mean, once a cheater always a cheater
-and who would do that to you, I don't know. No decent fella would.
-Oh, yeah? And why's that?
Well, cos you're Lauren Branning, ain't you?
Yeah! Yeah, I'm Lauren Branning.
And the canal.
Should have just told me the truth.
You were a little boy whose mum had just killed herself.
A damaged little boy.
What about later?
Then you were a damaged teenager.
And now I'm a damaged man.
What about Craig?
He won't have to be a secret any more.
We've gotta believe that he's gonna be all right.
Look at me!
The things I've done.
It wasn't you, son...
It was me.
