Chris is full of questions for Alice when he collects her from hospital, but she’s not for talking. She’s fine; she was just dehydrated and fainted. Once they’re home he quizzes her further. She admits she’s sorry for all the trouble, but she feels stupid and embarrassed. Waking up in hospital knowing the police had been involved made her feel guilty and scared. It won’t happen again.
Gavin explains he dropped Alice at the hospital, against instructions. But Philip’s fine with it; it shows Gavin’s heart’s in the right place. He admits he was hasty and tense last night, and glad Gavin ignored him. Philip speculates that if Alice had been drunk, Gavin would have smelt alcohol on her. Gavin doesn’t comment.
Susan’s relieved Alice is home. She wishes Emma would get over their ‘tiff’. Disgusted Emma tries to play her Alice’s abusive message, but Susan’s had an idea and leaves. She wants Gavin to come on the radio – he’s a hero. Gavin’s against it, until Philip volunteers to join him. They do the gig. Susan inadvertently reads out an accusatory comment on the Grey Gables explosion. Appalled, she makes a heartfelt speech defending the Mosses and praising her daughter-in-law Alice.
Later Emma plays Alice’s voicemail to Susan, and declares Alice an alcoholic. Susan accepts the message is out of line but thinks Emma’s wrong. She wishes she could pass a message on to Chris and Alice from Emma. But Emma’s done.
