I've been thinking about what you said about fostering,
-I think I'm ready.
Nic wants to buy somewhere up in Aberdeen for her and Grace.
I'm moving back down South, Gabriel.
You look so hot behind that bar.
For the record, Zinnie, can you identify the man who raped you?
It's number four.
Not long after she said yes,
she was saying no again, wasn't she?
But she stopped saying no.
James McAllister, you can expect a lengthy custodial sentence.
Please take him down.
MUSIC: "Nightbook" by Ludovico Einaudi
-You should have waited for me.
Can you take this?
-Feels so bare, doesn't it?
-We had some good times here, didn't we?
-Yeah, of course.
Me and Michael, we were so happy, when we first moved in.
Yeah, well, there's no point in dwelling. It changes nothing.
I don't know how I'm going to get all of this done by tomorrow.
I would offer to help, but I've got my trial at the Ship.
I think it's great that
-you want to get back out there, but...
-Yeah. I can't wait.
Zinnie, have you given any more thought to
-where you're going to live?
-Well, I've got this place
-for a couple of weeks yet.
-Right, and after that?
I don't know, I'll get a flat share or something.
I've got to get changed.
Sorry, I didn't mean to...
-How are you doing?
-What do you want?
I've seen Jamie.
He... He wants to apologise.
-He's had a lot of time to think.
-Good for him.
I know how you must feel, but seriously,
there's something different about him now.
He wants me to give you this.
I'm going to the police. This is harassment.
I totally understand,
but I thought you had a right to see it.
Please, just see what he has to say.
Tear it up, whatever...
but it's yours.
You'll no' serve too many cocktails in here, doll.
-Is it OK? Should I change?
-Don't be daft. You look great.
Where shall I start?
Right, well, it's pretty much the same as the last time you were here.
OK. Well, I'll start by taking these outside.
No, it's fine, I'll get them. I'm dressed for that.
-You're the boss now.
-I know, who would've thought it, eh?
Right, well, just remind yourself
where everything is, before the punters start coming in.
-Yeah, OK. Sure thing.
That's great, yeah.
I'll double-check with him and I'll call you straight back.
-There it is.
-That was Sandra.
-The social worker.
She's offered to come and chat to us after work about fostering.
I cannae stop. They'll be queuing up for the dryers.
-Oh, well, no chance of lunch, then?
-I'll be lucky to get
-a cup of tea today. I'll see you later!
It's Alex, isn't it?
Raymond Henderson. Local businessman.
You used to own the Ship.
Yeah. I've moved into property now,
These flats you're building, what's the market?
I got the plans amended the other week.
There's a big shortage in that sector.
Rents are low enough round here.
We'll be aiming for the top end.
I want to work with local businesses for...
the good of us all.
Some sort of consultation would have been appreciated.
Why don't you drop by the office?
It'd be helpful to get your thoughts on the plans.
When I've got time.
Eh! Quit it.
-Like playing God, eh?
-Alex, you know my boy, Angus.
All right, governor?
-You been grafting, for a change?
-Working my way up to a suit.
Talking about work...
So what is it, then?
-It was a major redesign.
Alex, family flats to student digs, they don't come cheap.
We cannae afford any more changes.
We need to get through Planning, whatever it costs.
Well, nothing will get built if we run out of money.
Things aren't that bad.
You need to win over the objectors and get planning agreed ASAP.
-Well, the new Health Centre should help.
-Folk don't like change.
-No' unless you can show them it's worth their while.
Ah, a pleasant surprise.
Aye, good to see you, Zinnie.
Two pints, and don't tell me...
-a brandy for Molly.
-Oh! There's nae flies on you, hen.
-I'll get the pints.
-No. No need.
Just put my feet up then, eh?
-Any takers for the petition?
-We've all signed up, thank you.
Did you hear they've changed the planning application?
Oh, no' more flats?
All for students now.
Och, do you know, this place is just going to be a big giant squat.
Gran, it'll be good to have more young people about the place.
Listen, sunshine, it'll be Hell on Earth with all the partying.
And the students will just ruin the character of this place.
How? It's not exactly Kelvinside, is it?
Oh, ha-ha! That Alex's a shark.
I wouldnae trust him as far as I could throw him.
-Look at his brother.
-Oh, Molly, gie it a rest, eh?
What do you mean, "gie it a rest"? I'm just saying what I think.
The point is, we don't have the infrastructure to cope.
Too true. I mean, can you imagine this place on a Saturday night?
It'll be heaving with rappers and metal heeds...
Stevie, is it all right if I leave this on the bar?
Aye, on you go.
-You all right, Zinnie?
-Yeah, I'm fine.
Look, make sure no-one leaves without signing.
-I'm counting on you.
-I'll do my best.
I can't quite believe it.
Look, Dan, if you were able to buy the practice,
you know I'd be more than willing to sell my share to you.
Thanks, Leyla, that's kind of you.
We'll just have to see how things turn out.
It's the least I can do, after everything you've done for me.
Look, I've got a patient in a minute. Come here.
I'll miss you. We all will.
I wish you'd let us give you a party or something.
I'd rather just creep away quietly. No fuss.
At least tell us what time you leave.
Yeah, I'm not really that good with goodbyes, Tattie.
I can't thank you enough for all your support.
Listen, if there's ever anything you need, just...
Actually, there is something, but it's a bit cheeky.
Go on, what?
Zinnie still hasn't found somewhere to live.
I just wondered if you had any plans for your spare room?
-I don't know.
-She'll find a permanent job soon.
-She'll be able to pay her way.
-It's not that...
She's still so fragile.
I'd feel so much better if someone I trusted
was there looking out for her.
I'll talk to Dan and see what he says.
-Salad box, fresh juice.
-That's so sweet.
-Sandra will be at the flat at six. Don't forget.
DC Cooper, you don't do PDAs.
Oh... What's with the health kick?
Well, I've got to start some time.
If he wants you, he has to want you for you being you.
-Junk an' all.
-Well, there's always room for improvement.
-I'm worried you're rushing into things.
-I've told you,
-he is a different man now.
-I should hope so.
See, before, he'd have died before kissing me in public.
Well, it's easy to make a show.
-He does that sort of thing because he knows I like it.
Fine. Good for him.
Look, Kelly, I know I've bent your ear over this so many times.
I won't neglect my pals, I promise.
Will needs to remember that you like to enjoy yourself.
-How about we have a wee drink after work?
Just a quickie. Come on.
-Leyla seemed to take it in her stride.
It's going to be weird not having her about.
She's been a good friend to me.
We'll go visit her once she's settled.
I can take you punting. THEY CHUCKLE
-Leyla asked us a favour.
She wants to know if we could rent the spare room to Zinnie.
Look, we've just moved in together.
-We're just getting used to each other.
-I know, I know. But...
..Zinnie is still so fragile
and once Leyla goes, she'll have no-one.
-She needs us.
-We take care of people all day long.
Leyla is counting on us.
How can I say no?
So you've decided.
Of course not.
It's your house.
No. It's our home.
We can help Zinnie find somewhere to live.
It's a tough time for her...
..and I know if it were Christina, Leyla would do it like a shot.
We don't know what we're taking on.
I can handle it.
Yeah, but can WE?
Of course we can.
OK. If it's what you want.
So, how long have we got before she moves in?
Couple of weeks.
And listen, once she's back on track,
she won't want to hang around us old fogies.
Speak for yourself. There's life in this dog yet.
So you'd better make the most of me while you still can.
Look at this place.
I'm leaving tomorrow, Gabriel.
Do you need a hand or anything?
No, not for now, thanks.
Erm... I found some of Michael's things.
Some old pictures and books from when you were kids, I think.
I thought you'd like to have them.
Shouldn't they go to Conor or Nicole?
Actually, I assume they'd have more meaning for you.
Right, OK, thanks.
I'll take a look later.
Are you sure there's nothing I can do?
Not for me. I'm pretty much all set,
but...there's someone else that could do with your support.
How do you mean?
Zinnie, she's doing a trial shift at the Tall Ship.
Well, that's great. She needs a job.
Right, it doesn't worry you that it's too soon?
You need to let go, Leyla.
She's back working in a bar.
-That's her choice.
-I think it'll be too much for her.
Zinnie needs support, not interference.
I know you're dealing with a lot yourself right now,
-but if you could just...
-Look, if she needs me,
I'll be here.
Right, I'll get off.
I'll get these in, eh?
-Hey, what can I get you?
-I'll have three of those, cheers.
I wasnae expecting glamour.
Not in an old boozer like this.
Well, it must be your lucky day.
-That is £9.27.
-Carol Vorderman, eat your heart out, eh?
-Excuse me, I'm not that ancient.
You cannae knock experience.
Keep the change.
Is that how we get our tips, then?
I'm only winding you up. It's good to see a smile on your coupon.
Thanks. It's good to be here.
-I'll take those over?
-Aye, please, pal.
Here you go...
Ah! Get off me!
I didnae do anything. Zinnie!
-Look, I really didn't mean anything.
It's all right, mate. It's just a misunderstanding. It's fine.
-What was that all about?
-Can I just take a break?
I think that'd be a good idea, aye.
Leyla said you'd be here. I spoke to Dan
-and he's more than happy for you to have the room.
Leyla said you needed somewhere to live.
She asked if we'd mind, and...
Is that not what you want?
No, Tattie, that's really kind. Thank you.
I didn't hear you come in.
-Did it go all right?
-Yeah, it was great.
Like I'd never been away.
-You're back early.
-Just on a break.
-Zinnie, are you sure you're OK?
You're not going to be on your own, you know.
-Gabriel says he's going to be looking out for you.
It'll do him good to have someone who needs him.
I don't need Gabriel. I don't need Tattie.
-I don't need anyone!
-I don't need life advice
from an alkie who's pushing 40 and having to pick up
-her own life all over again!
-I'm just trying to help.
No, you just need to be needed.
But when it comes down to it, when it really matters, you're not there!
JAMIE: "Dear Zinnie, I've had a lot of time to think
"and what I done haunts me every day.
"I wish I could turn the clock back.
"For what it may be worth to you,
"I would like the chance to say sorry to your face.
"If you feel able to come along,
"I've put you on the visiting list at 10:30am this Wednesday.
All right, Raymond?
Thought you were gonnae cross enemy lines there.
Well, he's asked my advice on his plans...
from a landlord's perspective.
Thought I might take the opportunity to check out the opposition.
-Nae harm in looking.
-None at all.
See, between you and me,
-I wouldnae mind it if Alex made me an offer.
-For the garage?
The land must be worth more than the business these days.
You've got a great wee business.
I'm barely breaking even.
-I'm sorry to hear that.
-Maybe it's time
I tried something different, you know? I've got nothing to lose.
Well, I could always ask Alex if he wants to buy you out.
Aye. Cheers, Raymond. I'd appreciate that.
-Catch you later.
KNOCK AT DOOR
Look, I was just passing.
I thought I would take a wee look at your plans.
Here you go.
These are the flats, here.
It's mostly studios, one-beds, 300-400 square feet.
-What do you think?
-Well, the locals have got their concerns.
We're hoping the new Health Centre wins a few over.
Yeah, maybe, but students aren't popular with everyone.
Your young professionals, now, they'd be much a safer bet.
Have you been up the city on a Friday night?
Yeah. But they'd pay a much higher rent.
For a higher spec, yeah.
-We'll yield a better return for this model.
Well, could be that I set aside a proportion of the flats
for local investors. If that's of interest?
I'll think about it.
I've left petitions at the pub and all the shops.
-Everybody's signing up.
Health Centre or no Health Centre, we'll win this, Eileen.
Yeah, of course we will.
As long as some of us aren't seduced by pound signs.
-If the profits were right, he most certainly would.
-Thanks so much for coming.
-Ah, it's no bother.
Is your husband here?
He should be here any minute. Head on through.
Get us a bottle of fizz.
-What are we celebrating?
That'll do me.
-What are you up to?
I saw you getting all pally
-with that Alex McAllister.
-It's a free country.
You do know his plans?
That model looks pretty cracking.
Shieldinch is completely the wrong place for that development.
What qualifies you to say that?
Seems like a sound investment to me.
So it's all about the money?
Listen, this could set up wee Stuart for life.
-Don't you want that?
-I can provide for my own son.
No, you can't. You need my support.
Don't give him a penny.
The development's not going to happen.
Zinnie! You look fabulous.
Nice to see you back.
Yeah. What can I get you?
Bottle of fizz.
-As if I need an excuse!
There's none left in the fridge, Robbie, I'll be back in a minute.
If you want to take a seat, I'll bring it over.
-You avoiding somebody?
RECORDED MESSAGE: 'Hi, this is Robbie.
'Leave a message after the bleepy thing. Bye!'
I'm sorry. He's had a really busy day.
-He must have had a latecomer.
Look, I'm glad we got this time.
So, why do you want to turn
your whole life upside down with fostering?
I would've thought being a cop was challenge enough.
I want to do something more meaningful, I suppose.
-It'll be tough, Will.
I need to do this.
Is this about Petey? Because this won't turn the clock back.
No, but maybe I can stop it happening to somebody else.
OK, but as long as you realise that that someone else is not him.
And they'll come with a whole set of different challenges.
We understand, honestly.
We're determined to do what we can.
Well, as long as you and your husband realise that there's no guarantees.
I'll give Robbie another try.
I bet you that's Will doing his nut.
Who was it that was coming round, anyway?
-One of his pals from work.
-From his work?
Oh, well, at least I've spared you the shop talk.
Are you saying my man's boring?
Look, I know you love him.
Sorry if I've taken the shine off things.
-You could win a medal for that.
But you are my reality check.
Seriously, Robbie, I just worry.
I mean, you rushed into it the first time.
-Look how that ended up!
-Everybody deserves a second chance.
Not when it comes to violence.
Really? What about Lenny Murdoch? He's a master.
At least Will's getting help dealing with his issues.
Aye, well, there's no helping Lenny.
But you've still let him into wee Cal's life again.
That is not the same thing, and you know it.
Despite everything that me and Will's been through,
it's meant to be.
We're crazy about each other, but...
I don't know, maybe you're right. Maybe it's just too intense.
Aye, cos you don't do intense.
I'd feel dead bad saying anything now.
Well, just tell Will to ease off.
He's got his heart set on...
PHONE RINGS What?
Making plans for our future.
Well, that shows he's committed.
This is really not like him.
Can't be helped.
Look, you'll both have to fill in the forms if you want to get ahead.
We do. We do.
Robbie wants this just as much as I do.
-Are you sure?
Because you both have to want it for yourselves.
There you go.
-What's the problem?
I got a message. Something about finances.
Aye. I've found a way to get more investment.
Won't that get complicated? You don't want to lose control.
No chance of that.
A couple of malts over here, darling.
The thing is, Frank, I can't have any more delays,
-especially at the council.
-The new plans will be at the committee
-It's down to you to make sure they pass.
-Keep the change.
A smile would be nice.
-You all right?
I didnae know he was in. I would've served him.
-Do you want a hand?
-No, I've got it.
-You've got a moody one there.
-Aye, well, she's a good worker.
She's easy on the eye, I suppose.
'..eight, seven, six, five,
'four, three, two, one.
'Happy New Year!
'Happy New Year, boss!
'You should be making a mint here tonight.
'Some job cashing up, though.
'I'll give you a hand.'
I'll take it.
Give me a minute. I'll handle it.
Today was meant to be a new job, a new start.
Do you know what it took me to...?
The last thing I needed...
-I know. I should've...
-Ripped it up, burnt it.
You had that choice.
I thought maybe...
..I don't know, it might help.
Haven't I been through enough?
Not just for this.
I know I treated you badly myself.
I am genuinely sorry, for everything.
Leave me alone!
Look, there are other jobs.
You don't have to work in a bar.
And you know best.
I don't want a fight.
So don't start one.
Look, I know I haven't always done the right thing.
Talk to me, Zinnie, please.
You can't keep this all in.
Leyla, you're all packed.
So why don't you just get on with your own life?
I'm so sorry.
You've been drinking?
Don't insult me by pretending otherwise.
I'm sorry. Me and Kelly just got chatting.
You've been ignoring my calls.
I said I'm sorry.
You also said you wanted to foster.
I got cold feet.
We're bound to be scared. We care.
We want to do a good job.
What if I can't?
We've only just got back together. We've got so much to figure out.
If you don't feel ready or if it's not for you, that's fine,
-but I've got to do this. I'm going to do this.
-What about us?
-We can still be together.
I'll move back to my flat, take the pressure off. We can still date.
Either way, Robbie, I need to make plans.
I'm not getting any younger.
Seriously? You want to go for it?
Because I've been lying awake all night
-feeling guilty about putting the pressure on.
It was the kick-start I needed.
There will never be a perfect moment for this, will there?
So why not now?
All under control?
So this is it?
I guess so.
-I was thinking...
-Gabriel, please, no. We don't have to...
But thanks for coming back. It means a lot.
I wanted to say goodbye.
You'll be glad to see the back of me.
I wasn't sure if you would...
As I said in the letter, I just wanted the chance to...
I never meant to hurt you, Zinnie.
That's just not me. I had a lot to drink and...
That's no excuse, I know.
I had this all prepared.
I didn't realise.
I didn't see what I'd done.
Not until in court, and then I got it.
Then I knew.
You stopped saying no.
I go over that night again and again,
and I'd do anything to go back.
Every time I go out, I'm back there.
Folk not knowing what to say,
or worse, pitying.
I get myself together, I go back to work, I move on.
And then this.
Don't pretend you're doing any of this for me.
-I did, I just...
-Well, what did you expect?
What do you want?
-To feel better? Forgiveness?
-Of course not.
Cos if you had spared a single thought for my feelings,
-you'd never have put me through this.
-I just wanted to try and
-make things right.
-You can never make things right!
Scared, are you?
I bet he'd love to know who I am.
Just tell me what you want me to do.
You contact me again, they're going to hear about it.
You've taken six months of my life.
Listen, Stevie, I'm really sorry about yesterday,
but I really am OK.
It's all right, don't worry about it.
I'll see you tomorrow at eleven.
I'll see you around.
-Where have you been?
-I was just wandering.
Listen, I didn't mean that stuff I said earlier.
You did, but that's OK.
I'm going to get some help. Counselling.
-And I'll definitely take that room at Tattie's.
Give my love to Adeeb.
Of course. Don't forget, I'm just on the end of a phone.
You take care of yourself.
Hi-spec student flats with guaranteed tenants,
guaranteed rent, it's a win-win.
What is it you've got against me?
Nothing, personally, just who you're in bed with,
that's what concerns me.
You set out the plans, leave the financing and politics to me.
I want everything on the level.
This Lowtherhill development is not going to go away,
and you know why? Because this isn't about regeneration,
it's about naked profiteering.
-What can I get you?
-I'm not sure Eileen would approve of me
-fraternising with the enemy.
-I won't tell her if you don't.
You're doing it because of me?
Yeah, and the toddler group, and the art society,
and the book club. I mean, they all need the Centre too, don't they?
God bless you, darling.
