Things aren't looking great for Niamh and Paul this week but he is determined to save his marriage and is hopeful that it's not a case of too little too late.
Niamh is doing her best to hold on to her dignity and aims to continue with her routine as normal but when Paul comes to collect Ruth for a couple of hours, Orla begins to feel sorry for him but she stands by Niamh by firing Jane from McCoy's. Callum brushes off his mother's attempts at conversation and it's clear that he's on team Niamh. Callum can't help but feel somewhat to blame for the drama but Niamh tries to make him see that it's not his fault at all.
Paul, in a bid to hurt Jane, tells Tommy all about her betrayal but it's only when Jane tells Paul that she would never go near him that he realises they never slept together in the first place. Shocked at his own stupidity he has hope now that Niamh will take him back but given his track record she isn't quick to believe him. A seed of doubt has been planted in her mind though and she wonders if she has done the right thing by kicking him out.
Jane isn't ready to stop messing with Paul and Niamh just yet though and sets about making things worse for the pair. Will her meddling cause irreparable damage or can the Brennans get through this?
Later in the week Niamh takes matters into her own hands...
Elsewhere, with things heating up between Yvonne and Dan, Bela suggests he meets Dan in a 'meet the parent' kind of setting, Yvonne is keen to avoid this happening telling her dad that it's still early days, but when Dan overhears them talking he invites Bela out to lunch and much to Yvonne's surprise the pair hit it off.
