However, when Steve repeats his confession, Michelle looks to Leanne, whose guilty expression tells her all she needs to know. Michelle rushes off to the kitchen to throw up. Gail is disappointed that Nick isn't Oliver's real father. Nick reaffirms to Steve that he'll play no part in Oliver's upbringing. Aidan sees the incriminating photo of Richard Drake on Jenny's computer. Robert closes the bistro to give Michelle privacy. Leanne explains to Michelle that she and Steve only slept together once when he thought Michelle had left him, and they've both regretted it. Michelle remembers Leanne's overtures of friendship during and after her pregnancy and is sickened. She wishes Leanne's baby had died instead of hers. Maria is against Liam living with Eva and Aidan but, unable to admit why, she okays it. Michelle believes that Steve was never truly in mourning for Ruairi as he had a backup.
