Dolores gathers Lucy's remaining belongings to return to her that afternoon. When Pete finds a photo of Lucy and her mother on the pile of belongings, Lucy walks in and attacks him for rifling through her stuff. Pete is appalled when Lucy starts slapping herself in the face and messing up her hair in a deranged fashion. Dolores walks in to find Pete holding Lucy by the wrists, to stop her from this bizarre behaviour. However, it looks like Pete has assaulted Lucy. Pete realises belatedly that he has walked into Lucy's trap. When Dolores asks Pete to leave so she can calm Lucy down, Pete knows he has been defeated.
Deeply shaken, Pete confides in Neil and wins his support. Pete then goes back to Molloys and Dolores lets him inside, in spite of Lucy and Wayne begging her not to. Pete asks Dolores if she believes him and she admits that she doesn't know what to think anymore. Pete saves his dignity and leaves, while Dolores is inconsolable.
Meanwhile, events escalate for Charlotte as her plan to scupper Rachel and Graham's relationship backfires and Vivienne discovers alarming information on Charlotte's phone.
Elsewhere, Keith makes mischief at the garage as Wayne struggles to assert his authority.
