But will he convince his son to give her up?
Puppet master Edward Hutchinson continues to spike son Tony with testosterone, in order to steal his wife and his life. And he's triumphant when he talks Tony into giving up on his marriage to Diane.
But Diane is furious to be treated like a pawn between father and son and Tony has to be cruel to be kind to Diane to protect her and the kids from his unpredictable self
Edward is thwarted when Diane decides that she’s not ready to give up on Tony yet and shows Tony some monster pictures that the kids have drawn and lies that it’s how they see their dad. These lies make Tony believe that his own children fear him.
Later, Diane is furious when Tony sets up a date for her and Edward in The Hutch and tells her that it’s Edward who she deserves to be with.
Triumphant, Edward pushes Diane to decide between her past (Tony) and her future (him) and emotionally blackmails Verity into winning Diane round for him.
