After learning the cause of Peter's death, Freddy confronts his brother Hedley to see if he is involved as well. Hedley denies he is sniffing but nonetheless, he is soon back in the park with Simone and Andy inhaling aerosol fumes at which time he looses consciousness and stops breathing. His friends get help and Hedley is taken to hospital where he learns from Simon that he has suffered some permanent brain damage. While in hospital, Hedley is roomed with Frank who tells him the story of how he gave up drinking when four of his school friends were killed in a car accident after they'd all been out drinking. Initially weary of Brendan and Judy's suggestion, Maggie agrees to move into Esme's spare room - perhaps not a hard decision when her only other offer was from a fetishist. Frank's disco is a big hit, drawing kids from across the district. Molly continues remodelling her kitchen, all a result of the new faucet Brendan installed. Mrs. Ledbetter tries to commit suicide after her cat is run over by a truck, Esme resolves the situation by getting her a new kitten. See less
