After agreeing to go with Carl to visit his mum, Kirsty is touched when they arrive at the nursing home and Nora is pleased to see her, but Carl's clearly uncomfortable…

When alone with Kirsty, Nora asks her when she's going to give her grandchildren, but instead of being honest and telling Nora she and Carl are no longer together, Kirsty plays along with the lie and insists they'll never break up.
