After his ‘confession’ to Jack’s murder, Newt refuses to come out of his room. Inside, Eli is making things worse by telling him he has to kill Frankie and Darren. Later, Frankie and Darren learn from Lauren that Newt has an imaginary friend, Eli, and that his grip on Newt presents a real danger.
Realising the severity of the situation, Darren breaks the door down, and Newt agrees to go to hospital. At the hospital, Lauren tells Frankie and Darren that Newt, in the guise of Eli, planted the bombs at The Loft and Evissa. Shocked Frankie begins to question whether he might have been capable of murdering Jack, and to Darren’s horror, tells him she wants Jack’s body exhumed.
