Kat Moon is desperate to get son Tommy Moon back onside, as he's fallen out with her over her refusal to help his new friend Scarlett. After telling his mum that foster kid Scarlett has a hearing coming up which could see her placed anywhere, he insists she do something.

With Kat still reluctant to take in the young girl, Tommy visits Martin Fowler and asks him where his dad Alfie Moon is. He thinks that if he can get in touch with his absent dad then he and Scarlett can move in with him.

Martin is alarmed by Tommy's request, realising that he still doesn't know that Alfie isn't his real dad – his birth dad is in fact his late uncle Michael Moon. Tommy is placated when Martin promises to speak to Kat but how long will it be before he discovers the shock truth about his dad?
