Satisfied that she has ruined Simon's life Gemma returns home with Tom. Simon turns up but Tom refuses to hear him out though he is convinced that his father will never give up and Gemma panics when they disappear together after Simon threatens suicide. She tracks them down but Simon tries to turn Tom against her, firstly by accusing her of putting career before family and then playing the sympathy card by criticizing his parenting. Neither works but Gemma's recollection of being orphaned as a child influences her next course of action, not that it brings her a satisfactory conclusion to things.
