I don't want Louie coming back with an accent.
Yeah? He's a Londoner.
Er, yeah. No, that's fine.
No, just as quick as you can, please.
Yeah, so is my flight.
Oh, better get a move on, then.
Dad, don't try and talk me out of it.
No, it's just... You heard Steven. He's besotted with you.
Since when did you care about Steven?!
It's not just that. She's going without saying goodbye to Ian...
You're hardly best mates with him, either, are you?
Well, he's Louie's granddad!
Yeah, and so are you.
Don't worry, you'll see him soon.
Yeah, right. Yeah, it's only New Zealand!
Look, I promise you.
And I know that Steven loves me...
but it's just not enough.
Look, when you're up in the air, we'll get them together,
all right, and we'll tell them.
For going along with this, even though I know you don't agree.
For the tickets.
And for just...good advice.
Shall we do, like, a...family hug or something? Come on!
Come on, then.
Right, well, you really should get going, so... Yeah.
Can you tell Steven I'm sorry?
Mum's going to kill me!
Go home, I'll sort this. Keegan, they're just kids.
Anyone who throws eggs over my sister is OK with me!
Seriously, little man, that was jokes.
The eggs were meant for you, after what you did to Louise.
But you ain't so innocent, either.
You were the one that told me about the birthmark.
It's not as bad - nowhere near!
Look, I don't want to walk around
worrying about you throwing eggs over me night and day.
Just...open up. No way, don't.
Bruv, I live right there. So we don't need this, do we?
Let's open up, and we can talk this through like men.
What are you doing!?
Killing something pretty.
Do you live round here?
Over there, but I can't go home like this - Mum will kill me.
Come into the Vic.
It's OK, I'm Ingrid, Mr Branning's nanny.
Come on, we'll get you cleaned up.
Where is she?
What you done to your head?
HORN TOOTS Mate, I didn't call you!
Please. Please, just tell me where she is.
Yeah, well, so you keep saying, but where?
Her clothes, her passport. Everything, Max, it's gone.
What happened to your head?
Just tell me where she is.
Why don't you just call her up?
Well, I would, but you have her phone, don't you? Oh, yeah, yeah.
Well, you don't seem very worried.
First she leaves her phone in the pub - a recovering alcoholic,
right - and now she's missing...
Well, she's hardly missing, is she?
I'm going to be late,
I've got to meet Ingrid to tell her off for being late.
So you can appreciate how that would make me look. So, er...
Yeah, I think that's our cue to...
Look, all I ever did was love your daughter
and care for your grandson like he was my own.
I ain't going nowhere!
Why did I go along with this?
Ignore him. Play the game.
Do you smell smoke?
Oh, no, the pizza!
SMOKE ALARM GOES OFF
Let me in, I'll turn it off!
If someone comes, they'll know Louise went out!
Guess pizza's off the menu. What else you got? Man's proper hungry.
I didn't believe her and I'm supposed to be her best mate.
Yeah, we were all taken in.
I mean, they spiked you and blamed me! It's mad.
I've listened to that song enough times but live, it was beautiful.
I was balling my eyes out, my rep is toast!
Mine, too. As if you ever had a rep!
Darling, I'm so proud of you, playing after what happened.
You should have told me the bullying was still going on.
And watch you go down for murder?
Don't look so guilty, it's over.
Finally, it's over. Course it is. Come here.
I'd better go.
Go and speak to her.
And say what? I've got to go.
Louise, I want to ask you something.
Louise, Bex? Can I have a word?
Look at that TV. Raaa! It's bigger than my bed!
It's all right.
People with yards like this don't usually leave their kids home alone.
Louise is meant to be watching us.
It's OK, I ain't no grass.
I let her go to the showcase.
I said I'd cover with Michelle.
She must have loved you!
Ah, he likes her! Ain't she like your sister?
Urgh, no! And I don't like her.
Shut up! Are we playing console, or what?
Fire it up, then, little man - let's see what you've got.
No, she's not here. I thought she was with Josh anyway.
No, he turned up at our place, he had no clue.
Why, what did he say? Oi!
He said that she'd resigned from Weyland.
Well, she wouldn't leave without saying goodbye to me. No way.
Even if she thought you slept with her bloke?
She doesn't think that! And... What's happened to your head?
Look, let me look at it while you wait.
She is not going to leave without saying goodbye.
She will come here, I promise.
We were stuck in the tunnel for ages.
One of those frustrated comedian drivers you get, you know,
The Tube brought us together, now it's trying to keep us apart!
I've just seen her, Mum. I'll ask her, all right? Yeah, bye.
What's with the bag?
Stacey's borrowing it.
I think her and Martin might be going away somewhere... Oh, right.
Um... Steven's deserted me,
Mum says he's running round trying to find you.
I mean, are you two OK?
I've got to go.
It's just that Jane said you were upset this week.
I don't know where he is.
Steven can get a bit, um, possessive.
All right? But he means well, and he does love you.
Don't give him the run-around, yeah?
I mean, the way he's losing his head over you reminds me of Peter.
I mean, how can you be late to a meeting about being late?
One sec, I promised this young lady a drink and a packet of crisps.
What do you want? Ready salted.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but your flowers...
Oh, where you off to, with all your bags packed?
I honestly don't know.
What's folic acid?
Hey, put that back!
Are we going to talk, then?
Relax. You stood up for your boy. I respect that.
Like me and Lou, it was just a joke that got out of hand.
Neither was them eggs!
Well, for Bernadette.
I thought it was jokes!
Did you see her face, little man?
Yeah, you know it!
She had egg in her hair, it was on her clothes,
and it was on her...
And the funniest thing, the stuff in that bag...
It's hers because she's pregnant, with my little niece or nephew!
That you put in danger.
I was so angry, and I saw the flowers, and...
Hey! Hey, it's all right.
It's always me who ends up with egg on them,
or pregnant, or whatever. Pregnant?
All right, Jane?
That's one of...
Was it you?
Did you ruin my flowers?
It's funny, half the things you buy for a cold
also work for a broken heart.
Bit of Nighty Night cough syrup?
Is that why you were desperate to get off the street?
You avoiding Steven?
I'm going to see Peter.
What, like, to try again?
Well, I... I didn't...
I kept his baby, didn't I?
OK, I see.
I don't know.
I've made such a mess of things.
Come on, tell me - it's only me.
There's this guy at work.
..but some days he's all I can think about.
So, where does Peter come into it?
Well, Abi seems to think it's actually all about him
and I'm just projecting, or something.
I was going to see if she was right.
But you only got as far as the tube.
What if I get there and it ain't...about him?
I don't even know...
Uncle Jack thinks that I should just go for it and follow my heart.
Abi seems weirdly keen...
My dad, not so much.
Don't take this the wrong way, but for long as I have known you,
you've always pushed against just being happy.
It's like you're scared of it.
Look at what she's done to you.
What, given me a family?
You call this meaning?
You're all over the place!
I'd make you happy.
I'm the only person you can be yourself in front of.
I've seen you when you're with her -
this weird nice-guy act. It's creepy.
I am a nice guy.
No, you're not.
I do everything for Louie...
and I try and make sure that her life is as easy as possible.
When you're with her you are like some try-hard personal assistant.
Abi... I love her.
I've never loved you.
Oh, you love her, yeah? Well, I'm sorry, but she's gone.
She's gone back to New Zealand.
I didn't storm out of the cafe earlier -
I ran out because she needed her phone unblocking.
You're too late, Steven.
She left hours ago.
..to keep me here.
I've done you a favour.
You think that if you stopped her now that this all would have ended!?
You would've fallen asleep each night
wondering if she's lying there thinking of Peter.
I'm never going to see Louie again.
I've lost my family...
No, you've still got me!
I could have made her love me.
Would you listen to yourself?!
It is pathetic.
OK? She is gone.
I hate you!
I have done to you what you have been doing to her.
and I played you, and you love it, because you and me...
We're the same.
We're not nice people.
Did you tell her everything?
She's getting their parents in on Monday.
They were sitting outside her office, crying.
It was so weird. Well...
Well done, both of you.
Shall we get home now?
Do you want a lift?
No, no - I'll get the bus.
See you, then.
Hope you make it back before you're found out!
Before you go...
About the prom...
That was one of the more eventful school shows I've been to!
I'm Persephone, Logan's sister.
I work at a model agency based in Covent Garden.
Have you considered modelling, yourself?
Please. We're sorry.
I stole it.
Man's got some bad habits.
..attacking pregnant girls.
We didn't know she was pregnant!
I get that.
So, I tell you what.
You smoke this, and we'll call it even.
Smoke it, or you'll regret letting me in this house.
I want Dad. "I want Daddy!"
Let me go.
Not till you smoke this...
It was me that had the affair with the younger model.
Not my husband.
He was a...
a student, actually, at a school I taught at.
I lost my job, so...
..you know, if you just want to walk away, I...
We've all got a past.
I'm sorry, but...
..I don't want to go anywhere.
I came as quick as I could.
Don't be mad.
When I heard you'd resigned, I was...
I couldn't get through, so I went round yours.
Was Steven there?
Yeah. He was acting...
Have you broken up with him?
No. I can't do it.
I'm going to New Zealand.
To figure things out.
With Louie's dad?
Yeah, I just want to see if...
..the feelings that I have for you, it's got something to do with him.
I haven't felt this way about anyone since I was a teenager...
..but, I dunno. It's just..
..something about it I don't trust, somehow.
Like it's too strong.
What if I split up with Imogen?
I can't ask you to do that.
What if I already have?
You don't have to worry about who I'm thinking about right now.
What, are you going?
She's an awful girlfriend.
She wouldn't have fixed your head up, she wouldn't have known how!
God knows, if you actually got hurt.
You need a woman that's going to take care of you.
A woman with a backbone. A woman like me.
You underestimate her, Abi.
You think if you got really sick or hurt that she would stick around?
What you doing!? That's mine!
VOICEMAIL: 'Abs, it's your dad.
'Look, Lauren's on her way to Heathrow,
'she takes off at 11:30,
'so drop her a message before she goes, would you, please?
Already left, has she?!
Where are you going?
Next time you nick some fags, nick a lighter, too, yeah?
Please. If I smoke inside...
Everyone will know - and Louise?
Well, I don't think she'll be going to that prom, though, still.
You know she's going to proper hate you.
Now take a drag!
It's lit now, you'll get done when your folks get home, anyway!
Get away from him!
I weren't going to do nothing!
Get away from him NOW!
All right, calm yourself!
Dennis, come here.
Bernadette wants to say sorry.
Wait till your mum hears about this.
Her mum'll probably give her a gold star.
No! If she finds out about this on top of...
On top of what?! What else have you done!?
She was being bullied...
..and she was upset and she did something stupid,
but she's obviously very sorry - look at her.
Is that true?
Well, I didn't know.
It still doesn't make it right.
And she'll make it up to you.
Oh, and how?
I mean, they're destroyed!
Well, I suppose there's still time till Walford in Bloom.
Maybe you can help me replant some seeds,
see if they can grow in time?
You think we can?
Yeah, whenever you want.
After school, before - I don't mind!
OK, well... We'll start next week, yeah?
Right, can we have our meeting now?
What, so you can tell me I'm late all the time
and it's not good enough and I'm fired?
You know I love Ricky and Amy.
It's just with the building work round Walford,
the buses are terrible.
So, I guess if you move in with us
it would save you getting the buses in the first place.
You've been with her for ages.
You can't just end it.
When I heard you resigned... I felt sick.
So bad, I knew I couldn't be with her any more.
This is too fast.
Stop running away all the time!
You don't get it.
No-one seems to get it.
Someone loves you, it's pressure, isn't it?
You know - they're crazy about you, but you're just you.
Your breath smells in the morning, you get moody for no reason -
I can see why you always want to run.
Is that your way of saying that you love me?
Isn't it completely obvious?
Look, I can explain, OK?
After I borrow the car.
So, what you going to do?
I'm going to go home...
and tell Steven that it's over.
Wants his dad, thinks you're an idiot...
but he's OK.
Don't be mad at Lou.
I made her go tonight, I said it would be all right.
Do you like her?
A tiny bit? No!
A piece of advice from a person who famously learned the hard way...
stick to people your own age.
I really am sorry, you know...
..about what happened with you and me cos of Preston.
Can't forgive myself.
After tonight, you're forgiven.
Can you believe you got yourself a roadie already?
And that roadie is the new Gigi Hadid!
Not bad. Shut up!
You shut up, Gigi!
Look, come on, admit it.
Modelling! That is so cool.
I let you down.
Alexandra and Madison would have been really mean about me modelling,
but you're just lovely, because you are lovely...
and I never believed you, that they spiked my drink.
Do you believe me now?
Yeah, I do.
You don't know how much I needed to hear that.
Now, can we please go back to being bessies?
Yes, I would love that!
I love you. I love you. PHONE CHIMES
Oh, hang on, I bet that's Michelle.
"Will you be my date for the prom?"
We're going to the prom! I'm going to the prom!
Right, Louise, you have to look so good!
I'm really sorry about all this, Louie.
Mummy just needs to be happy.
I've been looking for you.
You... You weren't at home.
No, I know. Um...
Can we go inside and talk, please?
What's happened to your head?
See, you do take care of me.
When I heard, I...
I just had to get it out.
Get... Get what out?
I just kept smashing my head against the wall
just thinking, "Get out...
What are you talking about!?
The brain tumour.
I've got cancer, Lauren.
