A close call for Paddy and Tess
Paddy has the green eyed monster over Marlon’s interest in Tess and feels hypocritical warning him off, reminding him she is married. Later, he awkwardly asks a frosty Tess if she is interested in Marlon and she reveals she was hurt over his accusation that she tried to ruin things with the social worker. When a vet conference comes up, the pair arrange a night in a hotel together, both excited about their secret rendezvous.
Meanwhile, Rhona finds out that her and Paddy got through to the panel stage of adoption and calls him to tell him the good news, unknowingly interrupting him and Tess. Vanessa tells Rhona to go and surprise Paddy at the conference. As Tess returns to the hotel room, she finds Paddy packing and he tells her it has to be over between them now and that he must go see Rhona. Little does he know that Rhona has arrived in reception and is heading to his room.
In a panic, Paddy forces Tess into the bathroom as Rhona invites herself in to their room and suggests they go for lunch to celebrate their news. Paddy agrees trying to get Rhona out of the room before telling Tess to go but they are not getting away with it that easily! Rhona spots Tess in the hotel restaurant and invites her to have champagne with them. Tess accepts and clearly peeved at the situation, Paddy is scared she’s going to reveal all, but will she?
