Fists fly after Carl admits the truth about Paul’s death to his father

After dismissing Charity (Emma Atkins) and Sadie (Patsy Kensit) from the dinner table, Tom (Ken Farrington) insists that his sons tell him what has been going on lately. Carl (Tom Lister) is forced to reveal the truth about his involvement in Paul’s death and Tom is furious that he didn’t go to him in the first place.

Before long the discussion gets heated and fists begin to fly. Appalled by his son’s behaviour, Tom lets it slip that he once thought Matthew (Matt Healy) would soon be responsible enough to take over the company from him.

How will Jimmy (Nick Miles) react knowing that his father intended to leave their business interests to his younger brother?

Meanwhile Shelly (Carolyn Pickles) can’t help feeling uncomfortable as she agrees to sign a form to give her equal access to Turner’s bank account. Later in the pub, Rodney (Patrick Mower) remarks to Turner (Richard Thorp) that the move to Spain all seems to be happening very quickly and Turner questions whether he’s acting like a fool.

Sam (James Hooton) is beside himself with nerves about his pending court case but deals with the situation by burying his head in the sand. Lisa (Jane Cox) is shocked to find a bundle of letters hidden under his bed containing details of the court hearing the following week.

Lisa tells Charity that he needs a proper barrister and asks her for some financial help.
