Chris visits Steve and winds him up by telling that Kim is filing for divorce. Steve is astonished and calls Kim in for a visit. She tells him that it is all for appearances and has to be done. He offers up an idea for them to give up money to the total of 100,000 to make it look convincing as this will leave them with 300,000 for themselves. Kim refuses. As she leaves, Steve phones Spalding. Steve is brought into the police station where he tells Spalding the whole story, saying that Kim planned it all. Much to Chris's delight, the police have Kim in for questioning and she puts Steve's change of story down to spite, induced by her announcing the divorce. Spalding can understand this and tells Steve that he believes Kim. Kim goes to see Steve the next day in prison. He wants them to try again but she tells him that he will be there for a long time as it is all over between them and there is nothing he can do to harm her.
