Episode Summary

The Lads
After a night on the town, Ade, Barney, Kev and Nick are waiting in the taxi queue when some drunks start a fight, during which someone is knifed. At the sound of sirens, they run. The next morning, the stabbing is all over the news: the victim is in a critical condition. For the Mackintosh lads, the big question is who used the blade? Accusations fly, although no one suspects Ade because he didn't want to get involved in the first place and he is as dangerous as a cuddly toy. Then Barney phones the hospital to find out how the injured man is, the police trace the call and he is arrested. The knife has also been found. One of the injured men's sidekicks is brought to the factory to identify Barney's accomplices. Kev has had enough and willingly walks into the trap. Nick wants to do the same, but Ade tries to stop him. He was the one with the knife. Ade hides while Nick and Kev are arrested. Both deny knowing the fourth man. Whatever they think of Ade, they will not grass. A witness confirms that the boys only fought in self defence and, as none of their fingerprints match those on the knife, they are released. But there is unfinished business with Ade. Over the course of a very long night, the four lads learn something fundamental about themselves, their friendship and also about the awful destructiveness of fear.moreless
