It's a drama filled night that sees Cathy and Marcus's relationship tested again, and Tess come to the rescue in a life-or-death situation.

In the midst of all this, the siblings get the results of their Valentine's Day DNA tests which throw up more surprises, but none so big as Colin has in store for them as they commemorate the first anniversary of his sudden death.
