While Ben is away on a dental outreach programme, an old flame of Susan’s makes an appearance, and she may just get her fingers burned.

Transmitted on: Friday 5th August 2011

Episode Summary

Ben has uncharacteristically volunteered to help on a dental outreach programme in Columbia. Roger offers to be a “substitute Ben” in his absence.
Janey wants Susan to join Facebook – she needs one more friend to get to 1000 but Susan is not interested. Janey goes ahead and signs her up anyway and while Susan is initially furious, she soon changes her tune when she gets a message from an old flame. Paul was the only man ever to dump her and now he wants to meet up. Janey and Michael are hugely excited at the prospect of getting a better father and encourage her to go.
Sharing a bottle of wine, Paul flatters Susan & says he can’t remember why he broke up with her. She offers to deliver a package locally for him but on doing so is arrested! It turns out that Paul is a wanted drug dealer and Susan has ruined 2 months of police work – they need her help to get information or they will charge her. She agrees to do anything she can to help them – that will teach Paul for dumping her!
Hidden cameras are installed and Susan is fitted with a wire in order to get the confession – things seem to be going well but every time Paul is on the verge of confessing, something gets in the way. Will Susan get the confession and more importantly, will she ever find out why Paul dumped her?
