Mandy’s spent all night reassuring Lois that she loves her and that she’s not a replacement for Freya. When Mandy goes to work, Lois snoops around Mandy’s bedroom and finds a box containing mementoes of Freya. At The Mill, Mandy tells Kevin she doesn’t want to be with Lois – she wants Freya back! Mandy arrives home to find Lois in the back garden, stoking a barbecue, and realises she is holding the Freya memory box…

In a panic, Mandy asks for the box back but Lois insists Mandy has to let go of Freya and drops the box into the flames. Mandy leaps forward to rescue the box but Lois shoves her back. As a manic Lois accuses her of lying, Mandy calls Kevin and screams for help. Lois begins to douse herself in lighter fluid, then pulls out a lighter and starts splashing the fluid over Mandy, too!

Mandy’s petrified as Lois tries to spark the lighter but it fails. Fortunately, Kevin arrives and swipes the lighter out of Lois’s hand. Lois is broken and bitter as the pair subdue her, and Mandy is distraught. Heston arrives to assess Lois, who admits she was doing this to help Mandy let go of Freya. As Heston takes Lois back to her parents, it’s clear Mandy still hasn’t dealt with losing Freya as she tearfully pokes through the ashes of the fire…
