Phil (Steve McFadden) is feeling hugely relieved following his release from prison, and is ready for a showdown with Ben (Joshua Pascoe) this evening.
However, when Phil comes face-to-face with his twisted son at Heather's flat, he's left sickened as he discovers that Ben has killed the kind-hearted mum-of-one.
When Ben begs his father for help, Phil reluctantly embarks on a desperate cover-up of the crime - faking a burglary at the flat, destroying evidence and leaving young George lying in his bed.
Returning home to the Mitchell house, Phil must then pretend that everything is fine as Shirley (Linda Henry) and the rest of his loved ones celebrate his release. Can Phil maintain the lie?
