Episode Guide

Donte and Chlo's romantic night is ruined when Lewis turns up on the doorstep and refuses to leave. When Donte finally does get rid of him, he doesn't count on Lewis stealing a set of keys, or his drugged up girlfriend, Maxine's decision to ransack the place. Donte quickly realises that there's only one language that thugs like Lewis understand, and so he sets off with a large spanner to confront him at the restaurant. Lewis might be a bad boy, but with an ASBO still hanging over his head, he's also desperate to hang onto his job. He calls Maxine and orders her to return Donte's stuff to the restaurant.

Brett is determined to win Davina back and decides to say it with flowers. Although at first she revels in the attention, Davina is finally forced to put her foot down when Bretts employs someone to release heart-shaped balloons underneath Jack's window. Davina might be quick at thinking on her feet, but she's not sure that her pathetic excuse about a practical joke playing friend has quite put Jack's mind at rest. Brett is unrepentant, and not beyond dropping the odd threat about telling his father about their fling. Finally, Davina cracks but insists that if anything is going to happen, it will do so on her own terms.

Jack and Roger are still at loggerheads over the future of Waterloo Road and Brett only makes matters worse when he smashes the model of the new academy. Jack would love to expel Brett, but his fantastic grades are raising the school's average and are great for the league tables. Kim and Andrew both suspect that there might be more to Brett's behaviour than meets the eye, a suspicion that is confirmed when they end up on the receiving end of a startling confession that goes a long way to explaining his edgy relationship with his dad. A week after his mother's death, Brett caught Roger in bed with another woman.

Jack decides that it's time to get some proper answers from Davina about Roger's finances. This information comes in handy when Jack is forced to physically intervene when Roger tries to drag Brett out of school. He calms down remarkably quickly when he recognises the piece of paper Jack is holding up - it's a print-out from a website called 'Big Baps'. Roger makes his money out of porn! Realising that Jack has him over a barrel, Roger has no choice but to give into his demands.

Secretly, Lorna's dizzy spells have been getting worse and her doctor books her in for an MRI scan. She's remarkably blasé about it all and on the surface, seems more concerned about the prospect of moving into her new flat. At least she has managed to enlist Tom, Andrew, and Izzie to help her move. She's thrilled that things finally seem to be falling into place for her, especially her blossoming relationship with Andrew. Later, they are both happily ensconced in her new flat, both unaware that Lorna's doctor is urgently trying to contact her.

Roger decides that it's time he and Brett had a man-to-man talk. Although he knows that Brett will find it hard to believe, he reveals that the late Mrs Aspinall knew all about his affair and hands Brett a letter to prove it. Brett is upset, but gradually comes to accept that what his dad is telling him is the truth. Meanwhile, Maxine is down on her luck and desperate for a fix. She attacks a drunken Steph on her way home from the pub and tries to steal her handbag. However, the mugging doesn't quite go to plan for either of them...
