Kelly got frustrated with her parents when she let Brendan leave the party but not her. Les told her that Brendan was older and wasn't pregnant. Later, Les and Doug got into a fight. At first it was only verbal but Doug hit Les when he started insulting Justin's mother! Dave split the pair up. Mike was causing everybody trouble. At the beginning of the evening he spoke to Eileen who lied and told him that she hadn't had time to see Pete yesterday. The truth was revealed at midnight when Lucy presented Eileen with a necklace from Pete. As the clock struck twelve, Eileen and Mike moved upstairs where Mike discovered the truth - Eileen had fallen in love with Pete! He took her by the throat but the pair were interrupted by Dave who threw Mike out. When Dave threatened to call the police Eileen was forced to confess - she'd killed Roy.moreless
