After Amy convinces her not to, Cain realises Kyle is better off without him.
When Amy reaffirms their engagement is about her love for him, not just a ploy to get custody of Kyle, Matty is delighted and Amy takes strength from his support.
As Cain enlists Caleb in the battle over Kyle’s future, Moira pleads with him to avoid making things worse. When Caleb intervenes, war ensues between both parties which upsets Amy and following her encounter with Caleb, Matty reassures her.
However, it's not long before things take a turn, and following a violent altercation between kids Carl and Kyle, Nicola threatens to call the police on Kyle which leaves Amy reeling.
With Cain quick to blame Amy for the incident, it's not long before both he and Amy plead with Nicola not to call the police. But it’s Amy’s appeal that causes Nicola to relent, which leaves Cain guilty to know the community sees Kyle’s violence as a reflection of his parenting.
Moira is stunned when Cain tells her that they need to let Kyle go, for his own good and is horrified when Cain views himself as a malign influence on Kyle and doesn’t just want to give Amy full custody of his son, but plans to cut himself completely out of Kyle’s life. He wants Amy to move away with the boy and give his son the chance to start again.
Heartbroken, Moira tells a resolute Cain he’s making a mistake that will haunt him to his dying day. Will Amy seize the opportunity to have Kyle to herself?
