Esmee interviews girls for the club. Many pay protection to Scott, a vicious pimp who, to put her off, smashes up Esmee's room, injuring Kate when a mirror is broken. Stephen is especially concerned for Kate's welfare. Esmee is proud that her old business acumen has not left her but is genuine that the girls from the Manhattan should be safe from Scott and is shocked when Marcus tells her he has forced Scott out of the picture by burning his warehouse down. Scott tells Esmee, in Marcus's hearing that she has two children and he tells her where they are. Marcus feels she should see them but she refuses, believing it would upset them. Stephen breaks up with Christina and follows the charabanc taking the staff on a day-trip to the seaside to tell Kate that he loves her.
