He's amazed at the package Claire has turned down and decides not to stand in her way. Todd and Karl get stuck in a lift together. Todd confides in Karl about kissing Nick. Karl reassures him that kissing a man doesn't make him gay. They become friends. Shelley comforts Sunita over Dev's engagement. Ken asks Deirdre if she's having an affair with Charlie. She protests that she's just helped with a contract and wonders why he doesn't trust her. He apologises. Ashley tells Claire that she should take the job of a lifetime. She reluctantly agrees. Jason tells Bev that Charlie has a date. Bev quizzes Charlie and he insults her. Bev takes solace in a large vodka and determines to fight for her man. Bev staggers to No.1.
