And Tyrone is arrested for assault!
Meeting up with the publisher, Adam and Fiz implore her to remove Hope’s name from the book.
In the garage, Tyrone finds a leaflet advertising a Q&A session about the John Stape book and later enters the hotel room where the Q&A session is in full swing.
When the journalist suggests to the audience that Fiz was complicit in her husband’s crimes, Tyrone sees red, climbs on the stage and slaps him around the face. And the hotel manager calls the police.
After Adam tells her that Tyrone’s been arrested for assaulting the journalist who wrote the book, Fiz begs the journalist not to press charges against Tyrone. Will she be able to save Tyrone’s skin?
As the police let Tyrone go, they reveal that Fiz talked the journalist around and later Fiz and Tyrone have a blazing row. Showing him a video of him punching the journalist, Fiz tells him it's gone viral and that as a result, they’ve brought the launch date forward to the end of the week.
After speaking with a libel barrister, Adam tells Fiz and Tyrone that she's happy to take on the case, but there’s no guarantee they’ll win and their costs alone will be £100k. Forcing them to break the news to Hope that the book will be published and they couldn’t afford to stop it.
As Hope rails at Fiz and Tyrone for failing to protect her, the police call at No.9 and arrest Tyrone on suspicion of assault after receiving a number of complaints about the video.
Calling at No.5, Fiz tells Chesney about Tyrone’s arrest and Hope announces that she wants to stay with Chesney. Is the family falling apart?
Later, Tyrone explains to Fiz how he bought up all the stock from the local bookshop, including the cutout in a bid to stop people from reading the book. But when Hope lets herself in, they freeze and Fiz hides the John Stape books from Hope while Tyrone distracts her in the hallway.
In the backyard of No.9, a sulky Hope kicks open the door of the outhouse and is stunned to see a cardboard cutout of her real Dad and a stack of books. How will Hope react?
