  • Tony is trying to convince Pat to think again about the digester when Kathy turns up upset. They have contacted the police but they won’t rearrest him because his mother has given him an alibi.

  • Lilian is interested to know what Matt is up to. Adam confirms that he was drinking at Grey Gables with Annabelle but he thinks Annabelle isn’t interested in him. In Lilian’s mind, that just makes her as devious as Matt.
