Martha returns from the retreat looking terrific. She’s beaming at being back with her family but is disappointed to hear that Charlie and Roman have split up. Whilst speaking to Roman she wrongly gets the impression that he’s sad they split up. Martha arranges a dinner and doesn’t tell Charlie or Roman that the other will be there. Charlie arrives and sees Roman’s expression as Jack and Martha canoodle. It all falls into place – there’s no place for her in his life because Roman is still in love with Martha.
Miles confronts Melody about helping Matthew to cheat on his assignment. Melody plays the victim, claiming Matthew bullied her into it. Later, after learning her story is not true, Miles asks Melody to explain what’s going on with this self-destruct pattern of drinking, lying and sneaking out at night. Playing innocent, she tells him she feels alone and that nobody likes her.
When Geoff sees Melody, she tells him that if he takes her to the senior formal it will make her feel much better. Geoff agrees. When Melody arrives home late, Miles has had enough of her lies and grounds her for two weeks – which means she won’t be able to go to the formal with Geoff after all.
