Gwen brings Jack bangers and mash for breakfast in the Horton living room. He loves it but tells her she didn’t have to go through all that trouble. She knows she’s been nothing but trouble since she’s moved in. She can’t express what it means to her that he didn’t turn his back on her.

When the doorbell rings, Gwen opens the door to Dr. Snyder. Jack wonders what he wants with his daughter. The doc makes up something about Gwen’s medication while issuing a thinly veiled threat to his patient. Jack runs upstairs leaving Gwen to give Snyder his package of drugs. She won’t help him get people hooked on that rubbish. Snyder threatens to tell Jack the truth about her miscarriage unless she delivers the package.
