Further details

When Jamie finds out Joe has been battering Mandy, he puts Joe in hospital. With Jamie's previous murder conviction, the Maguires refuse to let him go back behind bars, so Mimi steps into the breach and takes the rap for her son.

With Patrick feigning illness to hide his addiction and a rival clan on the horizon, this is the last thing that the Maguires need. The pressure falls on Jamie to take over the family business, but will he step up to the plate?

Mandy is trapped in no-man's-land between Joe and her family - where do her loyalties really lie?

Back at the Maguire's, Frank catches Patrick with a loaded syringe. Is it only a matter of time before the whole family discovers his addiction?

Meanwhile, Debbie is struggling to manage the family on nothing, but Maxine has a cunning plan, and Micky finds himself on the wrong end of a pronged baton.
