He starts talking to Fin about the trains and where they're going and where the furtest they've ever been away is. Fin walks towards Jay revealing that se was painting the words 'NO ESCAPE' on the wall. She tells him that running away won't solve anything. Jay says it not about running away but what he'd do if 'she' wouldn't take her back and Fin claims that she just needs time. They hear sirens and start running in different directions. There's a knock on the door and Jay's lying in bed. Someone answers it and you hear the police through the door. Quickly and quietly Jay sneaks out of bed, gets dressed, runs upstairs and back down out of the house. Where he runs into the police officer after him. As Jay tries to get over the walls the officer asks Jay if he thinks he's stupid. Jay just says 'hi' as if he knows him very well. Jay's following Officer Reynolds into a mortuary.

He tells her they had no idea who the guy was, he had no id, mothing but the birth certificate. Fin then asks how he had Jay's birth certificate. Jay says that they found out it was him because they checked with social services and that it turns out he wasn't born anywhere near where they live now. Fin asks about his mother and Jay says that they wouldn't tell him anything over the phone and they just wan't him to go and meet them in London.

Marla asks where mum is and Mack says that she's not up there, that she's gone out 'cause she's an 'early bird'. Mack looks in the fridge saying he's got some lovely pork in there and Marla tells him she's still a vegan. He asks her what a vegan is and she tells him no meat, no fish or dairy. So he asks her what she does eat and she says soya, she's makes her own. She asks him what really happened to his face and he says that he and her mum had a row. SHe asks him wat they were arguing about and where she's gone but he won't tell her. He tells Marla not to tell Stephen about their mum 'because he's not as tough as her'.
