As Stella confesses that the father of her baby may indeed be Rob, a disheartened Sean prepares to leave town and, thanks to the likes of Aunty Brenda, Stella's bad news is soon all over Pontyberry. Stella is anxious to shield thirteen year old Ben from the scandal but he is too busy discovering girls and going in for body-building to impress. Bobby returns to town, to the immense relief of Paula, who cannot work with Dai. Also back is Luke, deported from Canada for not disclosing his criminal record. A despondent Alan tries to make money by selling old junk but ends up out of pocket.
