Alone again, Maria and Marcus try to fathom out what made them kiss, and are adamant that they both want to be with their other halves. They agree to forget it and move on, but they're both clearly rattled and are awkward later at Eileen's party.
Maria apologises to Jason and tells him that he should move in after all. Later, as Eileen's party winds down, Maria takes Jason back home and Marcus heads off clubbing with Aiden. But will Marcus and Maria really be able to forget what happened?
Meanwhile, the café is crammed as the Spanish night proves to be popular. Emily is even convinced that Roy would approve. Over the road, however, the Bistro is empty. Nick wants to see what all the fuss is about at the café and so he heads over. However, although Nick is annoyed at Mary, he can't help but be impressed by her efforts.
Elsewhere, over a drink, Ken reflects on how guilty he still feels about leaving Wendy high and dry all those years ago. She reiterates that it's all water under the bridge and gives him a gift - it's his birthday tomorrow and she hasn't forgotten. Ken is moved.
At the same time, Deirdre collars Brian about the governors meeting going on so long. When Brian pointedly says that Ken has probably been waylaid, something in his tone intrigues her. Later, when Ken gives his excuses for being late, he claims he was with Brian. Deirdre seethes - she knows he's lying!
Also, although they are rattling along with their new arrangement, tensions still bubble under the surface for Kirsty and Tyrone.
