Nick tells David they can move into Victoria Court with him, as a fraught Shona returns home. David hugs her, relieved to have her home safe, but when Shona admits she’s worried about Clayton as he’s on the run and all alone, David’s furious and points out that his kids’ lives are in danger as a result and if he catches Clayton before the police do, he’ll kill him. Shona is devastated.
