With the former police chief still missing, Miri takes her driving test. Oscar enlists Dom to help with his environmental activism.

Further details

Making the strongest coffee in the world won't help Miri's nerves about Mandy and what has happened to John. Her stress levels are exacerbated when Janice reminds Miri that her driving test is today.

Caroline and Oscar wake to find an unnervingly chirpy Dom making them breakfast. And when it comes time for Dom to leave, it's clear he doesn't want to, so Oscar reluctantly ropes him in to help with "Make Hythe Clean".

Miri waits for her driving test examiner and almost brings herself to tell Caroline what happened the night before. But when her examiner arrives Miri must put all of that, and the whereabouts of her treasured digital pet, out of her mind.
