Storyline

Barney comes to see Clare to apologize but is high on drugs and collapses. She summons Kenny for help though Kenny is puzzled by Fist's interest in him and confides in Barney whilst Clare decides to 'save' Barney, not that her efforts are appreciated. Janice goes to a talk by thriller writer Martin Logan and, after she has impressed him by analyzing his work, they go for drinks and end up having sex, a fact she broadcasts at the group meeting. Rab, on the other hand, does not tell her that he has started a gay affair with her husband Jackie, who has engaged him as his secretary. Janice is only too happy to admit to her priest at confessional about Martin, since he is a big fan of the writer's work. Written by don @ minifie-1
