Episode Summary

EDIT
The Usual Suspects
AIRED:
It becomes public knowledge that Steve Johnson aka 'The Ticket Tout' has been found dead on the riverbank. Although responsible for it, it could not have come at a worse time for Ryan, who is delighted by the news of his first call-up to the England national squad, its also double delight for Harchester as record signing Luke Davenport joins the England set up. Due to Steve not having many allies, Stuart feels it to be a fitting tribute if Ryan goes to his funeral to pay his last respects to, who Stuart thinks, is his long time 'friend' from school. Racked with guilt Ryan has no choice but to go to the funeral to a man who has made his life hell over the past few months and has to play the part of a grieving close friend in front of Steve's real friends and family. During an emotional speech at the end of the funeral Ryan looks set to come clean and end all of the lies, but as he looks over to see his dad in the front row beaming with pride for a son who's at the peak of his career he turns back on the decision leaving himself feeling even more guilty. As the police start their investigation into the murder of Steve Johnson their prime suspects seem to be Dean and Tony Boyle. Knowing it looks bad for them, the Boyles track down Ryan knowing everything that happened that day on the riverbank. They tell Ryan they won't say a word as long as Ryan tells the police that they were with him at the time of the murder thus giving them both alibi's. As this new information gets out in the open, Clyde is shocked that his best friend has been mingling with one of the candidates for the club he is battling for and effectively ends their friendship. The investigation heats up as records show that vast amounts of money have been withdrawn from Ryan's bank account in short intervals. With the police wanting to know more about why the money has been withdrawn and what is was used for, Ryan thinks fast and reaches into his tracksuit pocket and picks out the scrunched up betting slip (that Ryan placed trying to get money to pay off Steve) telling the police and Stuart that he has a gambling problem.moreless
