Meanwhile, Chas and Gordon go public on their relationship and Chas tells Diane about Gordon’s offer to buy her half of the pub. Doug tells Chas that Aaron didn’t come home last night and it sends Chas into a panic. Back at the hospital, Robert is worried when he sees Aaron’s empty bed despite the fact he hasn’t been discharged. He heads to the pub to find him and ends up covering to a fuming Chas that Aaron spent the night with him.
