In the sitting room David learns that Simone and Chris have been living together.  "Do you mind?" asks Simone.  "Did you think I would?" asks David.  "Let's talk about something else," says Simone.  "Like what?  Work, or there's my latest...." says David.  Simone puts a finger on David's lips and moves forward to kiss him.  At that moment Chris Hunter enters the room.  "I thought you were going into Birmingham," says Simone.  "Yes well, I changed my mind," says Chris. 
Jackie Barrett returns hom from work early and finds Frank Tyler at the flat with Diane.  Frank tells Jackie that he is here because Diane wanted some advice.  He goes on to explain that Diane has a friend who has got herself mixed up with someone who is a thief.  "You know, she could have been talking about herself," laughs Frank. 
After Frank has left Jackie asks Diane what is going on.  She says she knows Diane was hinting about her to Frank.  "The only person Frank suspects is you," says Jackie.  "You've done me a favour," Jackie adds.
In Chris's chalet, Chris asks Simone what is going on between her and his father.  Simone says David asked her out to dinner thinking she would talk.  "If you'd have told me I'd have done the gentlemanly thing and gone out," says Chris.  "If you weren't such a jealous little boy I would have told you," says Simone.  "You aren't in love with him are you?" asks Chris.  "Even if I was attracted to him there isn't time to do anything about it," Simone tells him. 
Chris tells Simone that Rosemary Hunter's boyfriend, Ballini, won't be in Geneva as he has had to go on an important business trip.  "So the plan is off," says Chris.  "Chris, I warn you.  If you try anything," warns Simone.  Chris tells her it isn't his fault and leaves.  Simone phones Paris.  "A change of plan.  Yes, it was a mistake.  Don't worry, I have a better idea," she says.

Frank Tyler goes to the motel and asks Carney how well he knows Diane Parker.  "How trustwirthy is she?" he asks.  "That's not the sort of question you ask about Diane," says Carney.  Frank says Diane seems to be worried about a friend of hers who is in trouble.  Carney says Diane sometimes worries more about her friends than herself.

Meg tells David that Chris and Simone have booked in for a few more days.  David says he won't be sorry to see the back of Chris.
Jim Baines comes to the motel and sits next to Victor Lee in the reception foyer.  Jim tells him that he has a bit of a thing going with Sharon Metcalfe once but they decided to stop to try and save a marriage which was shaky.  "I don't want someone else messing that up, if you know what I mean," says Jim.  Victor Lee assures him that nothing went on between him and Muriel. 
Victor tells Jim about the night Muriel tried to go out alone and got stranded in a phone box.  He says he rushed round there.  "Why couldn't Sharon go?" asks Jim.  Victor tells him that Sharon ket Muriel talking on the phone whilst he went.  "She was terrified and couldn't be left on her own," says Victor.  At that moment Jane Smith comes up to tell Vcitor Lee that he is wanted in the garage.  "Excuse me," says Victor.  "You haven't heard the last of this," says Jim.
