Sinking more and more into self pity, Jack has become a heroin addict though he refuses to go into rehab so Orla organizes the others into acting as a roster of minders to force him to go cold turkey. Strangely enough, it is his father who actually provides the cure, leading Jack to profess the error of his wasted life though he is kissed better by Charlotte. Lilly discovers that, following her abortion, she has been left barren. Alan is far more understanding about this than he is over the notion of her plans to start her own business. Charlotte, meanwhile, pursues her increasingly unstable mother Beth to Greenham Common and saves her from being arrested for an anti-nuclear protest. However Charlotte has her own problem as she is pregnant and unsure of the father's identity.
