Aaron tells Chas that he's trying to ensure that Carl doesn't hurt her again. He tells Chas the he saw the kiss with Carl and, although shocked, Chas is touched to see some care from her son. However, Aaron turns and issues Chas an ultimatum: either she chooses Carl or him. With no other choice Chas lies to Carl that she's not interested and never was. Hey, he is a poppa killing sociopath and she's an inbred dead beat mother - imagine the shenanigans they'd get into. Elsewhere, Val is convinced her son needs fresh male attention (i.e. meat). Lily texts Jonny pretending to be Paul and is pleased to receive an acquiescence to meet. Over at the Woolpack, Val's ropey mothering skills come to no good when Paul declines her offer of a night on the town.
