After their ‘night’ in the hotel, Jac’s convinced that she’s got Lord Byrne on side – but he’s doing everything he can to avoid her. When Byrne hears Joseph invite Jac around that evening, he tells Jac that Joseph must never find out about their affair, leaving Jac safe in the knowledge that she’s got Byrne right where she wants him.

And a catalogue of errors forces Thandie to reconsider her future in the UK with Ric.
