Panic sets in when Nathan's murder is announced on television and they decide to leave immediately, stealing passports from lookalikes. Hannah, however, has become good friends with Euan's wife Ina, and,as a victim of domestic violence herself, feels obliged to stay and prevent Ina from ending up like herself. The other three realize that they cannot go without her and celebrate when a further television report shows that a junkie has been arrested for Nathan's murder, rather than hit-man Gruber. Unfortunately, he is getting ever closer to them and further disaster strikes when Sadie discovers that Ellie has robbed her.
