She arrives at a secluded spot and rushes to where Patrick is seemingly asleep on a bench. He slowly turns his head and tells her he can't move. Maxine helps him to the car and he asks her to take him to the police station so he can hand himself in. Meanwhile, Darren tells Nancy he's going to propose to Maxine today and she offers to help him. They decorate the Boarding House and Darren practises his speech on Nancy.
