At home Andy finds out that Josh has had a local uni offer and he’s stoked but Josh says he’s still going to move out. Andy tells him to stay, he’ll move out instead.

She guesses that things are still strained between him and Josh.
Ash is grateful that Kat has agreed to Billie moving in, saying everyone deserves a second chance. They decide to sit down and eat together instead of having takeaway dinners. Dylan enters to see them sitting together chatting warmly and joking around, he sits and eats, clearly unhappy to see them so comfortable together. When he gets up to leave he glares at them causing Ash to ask Kat about him, her expression clouds as she explains that they have a messy past. Ash is shocked to learn that Dylan used to hit Kat. He tells her to let him know if she has any trouble with Dylan. The next morning Ash stops Dylan and tells him to stay away from Kat. There’s a stand off between the two men, which Ash walks away from leaving Dylan to scowl after him. When he arrives at work Dylan tells Kat about it, but Kat just tells him to focus on their jobs.
