Next week, Max slips the phone back onto Daniel's desk and later, Daniel is shocked to discover that Max recorded a moving video about his life in prison.
The video leaves Daniel determined to help Max, but when he attempts to get Max to open up during his next class, Max refuses to engage with him. Things deteriorate when Max disrupts the class in a bid to win the approval of Gav, one of the lads in the STC.
When Daniel discovers Daisy Midgeley's spare phone, he gets an idea. He records a message for Max and discreetly gives him the phone to allow Max to record a journal.
Daniel is completely oblivious to the fact that Daisy has been using the spare phone to pose as Ibiza rep Crystal to try and lift Ryan Connor's spirits.
