Steph walks in from the kitchen prompting Lyn to get up and act like everything is ok. She gives her mum a hug and says everything will be ok. Lyn assumes Steph is just asking about her general well-being, and says that she is fine. Steph then tells her that everything will be ok with Charlie and begins to talk about how well Christmas will go, until Lyn twigs onto the fact that Steph already knew. She pulls herself away and begins to scream at Steph, asking her why they didn't tell her.
‘Is it because you thought I wouldn't cope? He's my father, I have a right to know. You have only just come into my life and I'm not ready to lose you yet. If non of you will not fight, I will be damned if I don't'

‘I'm not ready to lose him yet am I?' She tearfully asks Susan.
Karl has just introduced Izzy to his friend that he knows from years back. Izzy doesn't look too impressed but puts a smile on her face to please Karl.

She defends herself by saying that she has, but will try harder just for him.

‘You can't fight the rhythm Karl'.
