Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 2084
AIRED:
It's Davie's fifth birthday and since he still has a bee in his bonnet about his son playing with a "girl's doll", Pete decides to get Davie a manly Action Man doll to play with instead (complete with guns and everything!) Davie very politely thanks his dad as Pete cunningly hides the girly doll away behind a cushion! Later, the doll can't be found and Cat suspects that Pete might have done something to it, guilt eventually compels Pete to "look" for the doll, unsurprisingly it doesn't take long before Pete finds it in the same place he hid it. Also, Pete worries that Eileen might be overdoing it but Eileen tells him that shes hardly going to spend the next nine months lying down, is she? Seeing Conrad's optimism over Ben's future release days, Alex feels at liberty to break his silence and tell his family that Ben doesn't plan on coming home for his visit days. But he can't bring himself to tell Conrad that Ben doesn't plan on coming home at all! Later, Alex tells Katie and Ben's decision. She's just starting to digest it when Conrad enters with the news that the institute has called to say that Ben will be coming home for his birthday next Tuesday! Tanya worries when John arranges for her to meet his friends, one of whom used to be a girlfriend of his back in medical school. They don't really get off to a great start with a few doctor/nurse differences of opinion emerging . . . Denise becomes convinced that it was Graham who came into their house last night but Les tells her that they need to be careful before jumping to conclusions (even though he thinks it was probably Graham too). They eventually decide to tell Kelly and Justin who immediately become angry at the man who's tormenting them. It therefore comes as no surprise that when Justin sees Graham in the street he decides to confront him - man to man. Graham plays dumb and seems to convince Justin that he has absolutely no idea what he's talking about. Kelly has a similar encounter with Mel only Kelly comes away with full confidence in her mum. As Justin and Kelly debate Denise's state of mind at the Boulters' house, Denise has another private run-in with Graham. He confesses that he did break into the house to give her a little fright but tells Denise that he'll stop tormenting her family if she doesn't go to the police. Later, Denise tells Les that she sees this as somewhat of a victory - they've got Graham on the run! But Les points out that this man is a rapist and there's no telling what he's capable of . . . Meanwhile, after her conversation with Kelly, Mel returns to Graham's flat and tells him about it. She says that the worst thing was that she didn't know where he was last night so she wasn't really able to defend him very well. Graham tells her that he was working a couple of extra shifts for her dad. This tale turns out to be false, however, when Mel bumps into Dave. She decides to confront Graham who tells her that actually he was at a pub and he made up the story about him working because it sounded better. Mel reassures him that she believes him . . .moreless
