Diane winds Syd up about the fight in the Woolpack, suggesting he might have better luck going after unattached women - like Angie.

Oblivious to the extent of the trouble caused by his last encounter with the opposite sex, Syd takes Diane at her word and heads for the Reynolds household to lure his next victim.

Mack is unimpressed when Syd turns up at the Woolpack, with Angie in tow and warns him to keep his mitts to himself. Syd is rattled by the intensity of his friendís demands. He is forced to make a silent exit from the Woolpack, leaving Diane suspicious that Mack has warned him off Angie.

Chloe is nursing her wounds at Pear Tree Cottage and berates Syd for revealing their infidelity to Scott - asking if he intended to split them up.

Showing no remorse, Syd relays his conversation about infidelity, insisting Scott said he would cheat on her. Chloe is furious but wonders whether he is lying to defend himself.

When Scott returns from a night in a police cell, he has cooled off, but not enough to forget the accusation of the night before. He bitterly quizzes Chloe about how long the affair has been going on.

As recriminations fly, the couple both reveal some home truths about their relationship. Chloe delivers the final blow, insisting she has wanted to leave him for some time. Scott is stunned when she finally acts on her words and walks out.

Diane is keen to utilise Fogginís expertise in explosives to aid the celebrations for the Village in Bloom. Readily accepting, Foggin suggests a Woolpack firework extravaganza. Diane is tickled as she knows it will get right up Vivís nose.

Letting her emotions get the better of her, Diane can take no more and decides to pay them a surprise visit.

As she approaches the house, Diane is relieved to see Mack harmlessly working. Guilt ridden for doubting his intentions, she tries to sneak away unseen. But her sharp exit is spotted by Mack and Diane is forced to dream up a feeble excuse. Mack is furious and disbelieving, pointing out she has no right to interfere.

Angie watches the exchange of words as Diane berates her stupidity for making things worse. The course of love is never smooth, but with Diane it seems permanently rocky.

Louise is cautious about letting her head rule her heart when Ray tries to persuade her to move in. Having had her fingers burnt once before, she is torn.

But when Ray gives her a little bit too much space to think about his proposal, Louise worries that he is losing interest. She finally bites the bullet and accepts his offer, leaving Ray ecstatic that he finally has Louise under his spell.

Rhona and Marlonís rapport is obvious as they eat dinner with Paddy and Emily. Paddy teases them about facing the wrath of Tricia on her return. It is an innocent remark made in jest, but Marlon is defensive and apprehensive about Triciaís return.
