Matty's been finding things hard in prison, since he accidentally stabbed Samson.

He knows he didn't mean to do it, and that Samson's friend Josh shoved him into Matty's knife.

But Josh is a slick liar and Samson's not about to change his story - much to Matty's horror.

So it seems newly wed Matty is stuck behind bars for now.

When stepdad Cain visits, he is shocked when all his attempts to raise Matty's spirits fall flat.

When a terrified Matty points out Les as his new cellmate, Cain knows it's time to get tough and he tells Matty that it's survival of the fittest and urges him to use violence against anyone who threatens him.

Matty's even more scared as he contemplates what this could mean him having to do.
