As Paul gets carried away, he accidentally swears live on air and leaves Amy worried that her radio career could be over already.

Later in the week, Denny approaches Bernie outside the café and complains that he only found out their son was dying when he heard Paul on the radio.

Bernie doesn't want Denny to be involved in Paul's life again, so she lies that Paul is already dead and the recent interview was a recording.

Denny doesn't believe Bernie's claims and follows her up to the flat, where he's reunited with Paul and Gemma.

Once Bernie is alone with her partner Dev Alahan, she complains about Denny's sudden return. Secretly, she's worried that Denny might expose secrets from her past.

Paul's husband Billy Mayhew is also unhappy over Denny, reminding Paul that Denny used to be violent towards him when he was a child.
