Jack sleeps with Lilly whilst Charlotte is visiting her parents,who announce their decision to divorce. Left alone in the house her mother sets fire to it and is taken to a mental hospital where Charlotte,aware of Jack's deceit,visits and tells her that women do not need men. Lilly inevitably becomes pregnant and Orla arranges the abortion. Alan defends Victor against racists but still makes gay jokes,unaware of Jay's sexuality.
