With his ordeal behind him and back home, Phil is ready to get back to normal. Ben has found out that Gavin is trying to contact his mum again. Ben urges his father to go and see DCI Marsden but when he refuses, he and Ben have an argument.
Breaking apart in the Arches, Ben speaks to Paul who is more than happy to lend his shoulder. Paul tells him to be the man and get his family sorted and functioning again.
Ben takes on Paul's advice and prepares to sort his family problems out. Later, at the Halloween party, Ben is feeling drawn to Paul once again. Ben is unable to keep his eyes off Paul when he arrives at the Vic in a rather revealing Halloween costume, but with Ben determined to do the right thing by his family, is there any hope for the pair?
