Ben finds Steph in the freshly cleaned kitchen at Beth’s place – Steph’s gesture of thanks to Beth for letting her share her room. Steph knows she’s been driving Beth mad, but it’s been a weird time for her. Beth gets home from work to find Ben and Steph chatting away. She’s blown away by the spotless kitchen and fridge. When Steph offers to make tea Beth jokes she’s like a totally different person! Ben tells Beth how overwhelming his prep for work is next week, and Beth suggests they stay in tonight. Ben thinks Beth should go out with Steph, and seeing her sister in a new light, Beth agrees. As Martha and Xander play in the park, Adam chats to Alice about his and Ian’s artisan pizza van venture. Alice is unhappy when Chris arrives to pick up Martha earlier than agreed. Alice and Chris argue over who’s unreasonable, but as Adam attempts to mediate they all miss Martha climbing up a slide. Martha falls and injures her head. In A&E Chris and Alice are tense as a doctor confirms Martha can go home when she wakes up. Neither want to leave Martha tonight. They argue about who she should go home with, and whose fault it was that Martha fell. Having overheard their ugly row, the doctor explains she understands this was an accident, but she is concerned for Martha’s welfare. She’s made a referral to children’s social services. Alice and Chris are horrified.
