But does she feel the same?
Comforting a distraught Dawn, who insists she's a monster for killing Malone, Billy delivers an impassioned speech and when Dawn leans in for a kiss, he initially reciprocates before pulling away, leaving her humiliated.
Mortified after yesterday's rejection, Dawn dodges Billy's calls and at Tall Trees, Billy covers to Meena that he's worried about Ellis, but his mind is solely on Dawn.
Turning up at Woodbine, Billy insists Dawn hears what he's got to say as he explains that he wants to be with her. Wanting assurance from her that she feels the same after their messy past, how will Dawn respond?
