Having promised to tell Michael everything, Eddie brings his son to an assisted living home. When they arrive, Eddie introduces Michael to Craig - his secret son, who has Down's syndrome. Michael is shocked by the revelation that he has a half-brother he never knew about, but Eddie corrects him by explaining that Craig is actually his full brother. Craig is pleased that Michael is visiting as Eddie had promised him that he'd get to meet his family one day, but Michael is unhappy that they weren't introduced sooner. As tensions rise, Eddie makes it clear that Michael and Craig's mother wasn't the saint they make her out to be.
Michael soon spends some time getting to know his brother and is moved when he sees that Craig has a St Christopher around his neck just like him. Later, Eddie and Michael return to the hospital, where Tyler's condition remains critical as he undergoes life-saving surgery. Pushing for more answers, Michael asks Eddie for the truth about his mother. Will Michael believe what Eddie has to say? And will Tyler pull through?
Meanwhile, Jack finally discovers that Darren has been stealing from the car lot and tells Jodie what her fiancé has been up to, prompting her to call off the wedding. When Darren seeks advice from Tamwar and Fatboy, they assure him that Jodie does love him and so he shouldn't give up on their future.
Later, an emotional Anthony confides in Jodie about everything that's going on, so she offers him a comforting hug. When Darren sees this, he misinterprets it as a romantic moment. Soon afterwards, Darren decides to go out drinking with Lauren and the pair end up sharing a passionate kiss.
