A charity night at the Jockey ends in disaster when Shane steals Tilly's wheelchair.

Further details

Shane's actions cause public outcry and throw the Maguire family business into chaos.

Libby's new friendship with Martin helps her to rediscover her passion for literature. It also opens her eyes to her diminishing relationship with Frank, much to Patty's fear, who instructs Frank to woo Libby back.

But Frank's benefits have stopped and his total disregard for others causes widespread problems until his actions finally have an impact on him.
