Everyone is stunned to see Phil who, despite his bruises and cuts, refuses to reveal what happened to him. In a bad way, Phil collapses. When Kathy arrives while Phil's waiting for the ambulance to turn up, an angry Sharon turns her away. In the hospital, Marsden appears to talk to Phil about his injuries. Refusing to open up, Phil insists he doesn't need her help.

After a heart to heart with Sharon, Phil is happy to see Ben, who promises Phil that he's finished things with Paul. There's cause for concern for Ben when Phil asks him to get him some scotch. Clearly a broken man, Phil is struggling to come to terms with what has happened to him.
