Time is up for Breda as Mercedes finds Tony
With preparations in full swing for the McQueen's second Christmas, John Paul helps Mercedes and is pleasantly surprised when he clasps eyes on hunky Sylver for the first time since they were teenagers.
Asking him if he'd like to stay for dinner, Mercedes is disappointed when Sylver tells her he as to get back to Grace.
Worried that she has strayed from God's path with her latest vendetta, Breda thinks she still has time to put things right and agrees to join Goldie at Mercedes' for ‘Christmas’ with Bobby.
Just as the McQueen's get into the festive spirit, Breda and Goldie arrive at The Dog flat, but feeling all twitchy, Breda suggests they follow tradition and move the party to the McQueen’s house.
Suspicious as to why she wants the flat to herself, John Paul distracts the family by suggesting a Christmas conga.
Later, when Jack calls at the McQueen's, Goldie is shocked by Breda's behaviour as she throws her engagement ring at him. Seeing her upset at the pub, John Paul finds out from Goldie that Breda still has the pig farm which rings alarm bells. Meeting Mercedes in The Dog car park, John Paul tells her to go to the farm.
Trying to apologise to Jack for her mum's behaviour, Goldie reckons Breda doesn't really love him and is using her dementia as an excuse. Giving him his engagement back, Goldie notices the inscription inside the ring, 'LL' for Louis Loveday.
After finding the keys to the barn at the pig farm, Mercedes wearily steps inside. But when she can't see anything, she turns to leave - until she hears a faint groan and is horrified to find Tony!
