Melody is still terrified about living on the street. Her new friend Archie wonders how bad Melody’s home life was – most street kids feel safer sleeping rough than they ever did at home. Archie steals some food and, unbeknown to Melody, some cash. He then spots a policeman and runs off with Melody. The cop is actually one of Charlie’s colleagues, helping Charlie and Miles.

Archie gives Melody half the stolen money, suggesting she buys a train ticket home. But then the street kids he stole from attack him. He tells Melody to run and, after a moment’s hesitation, she does.

Charlie and Miles agree that their kiss shouldn’t have happened. Archie tells Charlie’s cop friend that he knows Melody and she was going to the station. But she’s not there. Miles has a thought – Melody might be in a church. Miles finds her sitting in a pew and they have an emotional reunion. Melody is coming home.

Ruby and Xavier are secretly meeting, but are caught by Leah who is not impressed. Xavier’s phone keeps ringing: it’s someone called Freya. Xavier reveals that Freya’s the girl he’s just finished with. Ruby’s not happy but accepts it. But then there’s a knock at the door. It’s Freya!
