Libby and Kim attempt to talk to Patrick about him asking them all to move out but Patrick's insistent - it's for the best. Sure that he's only saying it out of grief, Kim tries to involve him in Denise's funeral arrangements but Patrick realises what she's trying to do and reaffirms his decision to reclaim his house. Turning to Lucas, Kim asks him to have a word with Patrick but he's reluctant to even try. Chelsea, meanwhile, decides that she wants to sell Denise's exercise bike, before heading out to choose flowers for the funeral. Left alone with Lucas, Patrick refuses to talk to him, reaffirming his disgust at the part he played in covering Owen's murder. Later, over a game of cards, Billy and Charlie become concerned about Patrick as he continues to drink.

Consuming more and more alcohol, Patrick starts dancing and singing, much to the confusion of the others. When the rest of the family walk in, they can't believe what they're seeing. An argument ensues between Patrick and Kim and Lucas is forced to step in. Walking Patrick to the allotments, Lucas asks why he's behaving so out of character. At that moment, Patrick explains how angry he is at Denise for selfishly ending her life. Assuring Patrick that everybody has secrets, Lucas insists that the girls need Patrick in their lives. Despite Patrick's worry that he'll let them down like he did with his own children, Lucas reassures him - he's there for them all.
