Victor comes round to see Helen. But only Julie is there, and they sit awkwardly together. Victor says that he just uses his savings account for pocket money. Julie does not look convinced.
Victor asks Julie what she thinks of some earrings he has bought to match the pendant. Julie says she hopes Victor isn't spending more than he should. He looks very annoyed.
Helen comes in at that moment, so Julie heads off. Victor tells Helen that he hasn't really got a lot of money after all - he doesn't have any money or any investments. Nor does he have any business meetings. He gives Helen the earrings and says he lied because he wanted to impress her.
Helen tells Victor that she doesn't need gifts and things and calls him a silly old fool. She offers him a cup of tea, but he'd prefer a drop of scotch.
Mrs Logan is harrassing Max again, saying he's been spying on her in the bathroom. Max rolls his eyes and Mrs Logan calls him a filthy beast!
Just then, Shane arrives. He tells Max that he's going away to do some thinking - just like Max is living in the bedsit. He asks Max if there's something else he wants to tell him. He's very cryptic though. Shane tells Max that he misses him - he thanks him for everything he's done for him over the years. He gets very emotional and says that he hopes everything works out for Max.
SHANE: Bye, Dad.
Shane heads off.
MAX: Shane. Come back soon, eh?
Garden of the Robinsons
Victor and Helen are having a chat. He says he woke up one day and felt old, so he thought he'd look Helen up. Helen asks for more details about Victor's daughter. He says they haven't spoken in fourteen years, ever since she got involved with a hippy-type called Philip Newman and got pregnant. They eventually got married, but Victor didn't go to the wedding. He doesn't know where they are now. Helen says she'd love to meet his daughter. He shows Helen a photo.
Nick is just leaving. He sees Jim and tells him goodbye - he's off to Hawaii. He tells Maria not to worry about Shane - he'll be alright. He says if Maria changes her mind, she knows how to get in touch with him, but she tells him firmly that it won't happen. Nick says he'll go and see Max before he goes.
Jim is surprised to hear from Maria that Shane has gone away.
Helen is ringing around trying to find Victor's daughter without his knowledge (like you do!) Jim tells her not to be silly. Just then, someone answers the phone and it really is Victor's daughter. She tells Helen that she's tried with Victor in the past but that it's no good. Helen says that Victor does carry a photo of her around with him. Helen gives her the address and asks her to come round. Victor's daughter refuses, but says that Victor can come round and see her if he wants to.
Max is not at all pleased to see Nick. He tells Nick that he wants to know why Shane has gone away. Nick says it's not him - Shane is upset about something else, but he doesn't know what. Nick admits to Max that he loves Maria and always has. Max is angry, especially when he hears that Nick asked Maria to go away with him. Nick says that nothing has happened - Maria is too honourable. Max scoffs.
Helen is still thinking about Victor and his daughter. She'll try to talk Victor into seeing his daughter when she sees him next.
Helen answers the door, and it's Margart Newman - Victor's daughter! Jim and Julie head off to the cinema while Helen sits Margaret down on the sofa. She tells Helen that she thought about what she said and has decided to give it a go with her father. Apparently her husband convinced her to come - he's waiting outside in the car.
Margaret says she's no longer the rebellious hippy, she's a mother of a 14 year old. Helen says that Victor is desperately lonely and very proud - Margaret should go easy on him.
Just then Victor arrives. He doesnt recognise his daughter at first. Then he realises. He comes slowly into the room and hugs Margaret.
VICTOR: I don't know what to say. It's so good to see you again.
They sit down for a chat and gets on well. She invites Victor to stay with her and Philip. She goes to call Philip in from the car.
While Margaret is gone, Helen apologises for such a massive surprise, but reminds him that he has a great opportunity to reunite his family.
Just then, Philip, Margaret and two children come in - Victor's grandchildren. It's quite an emotional moment and I'm crying myself as his little granddaughter hugs him.
Philip invites Victor to stay, saying they've got a spare room and it's his for as long as he wants. Victor graciously accepts. He and Philip shake hands.
Nick wants to know the real reason that Max left Maria. Max won't tell him. Nick tells him to go home - Maria still loves Max.
Finally Max admits to Nick that Danny isn't his son. They had a row many years ago and separated for a while. She had an affair which resulted in Danny. Nick says that he can't hold a mistake against Maria for ever. Max loves her, but resents her - which is it going to be?
