The men insist that they will be back tomorrow and warn Cain that if he wants to see his daughter grow up he will have money ready for them. How will Cain respond to being played at his own game?

Debbie realises her father is in some kind of trouble when he is threatened by two strangers in their own home

Elsewhere, Sadie (Patsy Kensit) notes that Tom (Ken Farrington) is uncomfortable with Dean (Marc Bolton) and Charity (Emma Atkins) spending time together and when she makes a comment to Tom he angrily snaps back at her.

Later on Charity is annoyed when Tom makes an excuse for her not to attend a meeting. She tells him that staying at home drives her mad and reluctantly he agrees she can go. Will Tom regret his decision?


Meanwhile, Paddy (Dominic Brunt) offers to give Alice (Ursula Holden Gill) a lift back to her farm, and although she is grateful she would clearly rather stay with them. Alice says that she wants to sell the farm and hints that she would like to live with them. Paddy clearly feels trapped but can he refuse the young girl?
