ELLY: You would do that?
LIAM: Absolutely. I'd do anything for Amy and Jimmy.

Mark finally makes it to the apartment but Leo tells him Paul isn't there. Chloe emerges from the lift and tells Mark he's got it wrong.
CHLOE: Mark, you're wrong about this. I'm not having an affair with Paul. It's with another guy.
LEO: Well then you don't need to say anything!
CHLOE: I have to come clean.
LEO: No you don't!
CHLOE: It's with Brandon!
Chloe tells Mark he can check it out with Dipi as she caught them in the spa at her place.
MARK: Then what were you doing in Paul's car?
CHLOE: You know what we were doing. You found the evidence. We were fooling around and there was a slight incident with the roof!
MARK: Doesn't Brandon have a car of his own?
LEO (feigning annoyance): You used my dad's car?
CHLOE: It's so much more fun in a super hot car. Especially when it's not yours. The buzz is amaze.
MARK: OK, yep, I think I've heard enough!
Paul returns, having forgotten his keys, and asks what's going on.

Chloe thanks Mark for not saying anything to Paul. Mark tells her she's lucky Leo didn't fire her! Chloe apologises for dragging him into this and Mark says he was just worried about her.
MARK: That's what you get for not doing your own washing.
CHLOE: Lesson learned!
Mark leaves for a run as Fay returns. Fay wants to know if Chloe is going to stop carrying on with Leo; every lie she tells makes the situation more complicated.

CHLOE: I mean, you've see the dimples, right?!
Fay tells Chloe she keeps saying she's going to change... now's the time to do it.

Amy and Elly enter and Amy says if it's true she will never forgive Liam. Elly tells Amy there's something she has to know and tells her about the offer from New York. He needs time to think about it.
AMY: He has to think about abandoning his son? The answer should just be no. I need to talk to Liam.
ELLY: Amy, there's more to the story.
AMY: No, I don't want to hear another word from you, OK? It's obvious you're on his side.
Amy storms out.
Chloe finds Leo and tells him Mark doesn't suspect a thing.
LEO: Paul hasn't said anything either He's probably just happy to avoid your brother.
CHLOE: Yeah, those two really aren't fans, are they?
LEO: Yeah, there's a long history of animosity there!
Leo asks Chloe if what she said about Brandon was true and Chloe tells him they almost hooked up. Leo wonders if Brandon is giving them a hard time because he's jealous but Chloe doesn't think so. Besides, she's enjoying herself too much with Leo. Leo tells her they have to be more discrete... as they sit there kissing with the office door wide open!
Amy confronts Liam about New York and tells him he's broken Jimmy's heart. Liam says he's turned it down; Jimmy must have misheard. He makes things worse by saying he never would have gone without Jimmy! Amy is furious.
AMY: There's so many secrets. You manipulate my friends and you think that you can take Jimmy away.
LIAM: Please, Amy...
