While Cain's taken the blame to protect his boy and is riding out his prison sentence, back in the village, Moira and Amy are trying to keep up appearances – and, crucially, keep a lid on the killer secret.

The women know it's a real gamble taking fragile Kyle to a party. The lad is consumed with guilt over what he's done, he's devastated that his dad is in jail, and just isn't coping.

They plan not to let Kyle out of their sight but the event is really busy and to their horror, they spot him talking to PC Swirling!
