Meanwhile Grace Black (Tamara Wall) who got together with Sylver before he was arrested and bundled behind bars, tells lawyer James Nightingale (Gregory Finnegan) that she’s never seen Sylver so low before and begs him to do everything in his power to get Sylver released. Can James help Sylver?

Liam Donovan (Jude Monk McGowan) is later suspicious when James approaches him and asks him if he can give him some of the same drugs that he recently sold to Sid Sumner (Billy Price). Liam initially suspects he’s being set up by James.

However he starts to be convinced when James says he just needs something to blot out the pain of losing his boyfriend Harry Thompson (Parry Glasspool) who was recently murdered.

Liam softens and assures James that he can get him the drugs he needs but has he just made a big mistake and does James have a hidden agenda?
