Peter tracks down Simon's teacher and asks for his mobile. After failing to hack the code, he smashes it with a hammer and cuts up the SIM card. Simon is gutted when Peter lies that he dropped the phone, but is cheered up when his dad gives him money to buy new one. When he accesses his missed messages, he discovers what Peter was trying to hide - a panicky voicemail from the night of Ken's attack, saying he has messed up and has to go away. Simon begins to wonder if Peter could have been responsible for the attack on Ken. And if the message WASN'T about Ken, then what was Peter so panicky about?

Daniel realises that the police think he killed Denise and has now targeted Ken. On Friday, Daniel lies to Sinead, telling her he's going to Oxford for the day in hope of getting reinstated on the course. But she finds a note from him later and realises he's actually leaving because his family think he tried to kill Ken. Sinead points out that running away will just make him look guilty - but can she convince him to stay?
