In an overheard conversation she doesn't quite understand, daughter Ruth asks Paul what her brothers meant when they spoke about someone taking 'happy pills'.

Piecing things together, Paul realises that his sons have been systematically torturing him.

When Paul confronts Callum about his lies, he threatens him with prison; for his son Oisín he ruins a big career move on him. With Callum terrified of the prospect of prison, he blames Oisín for letting things get this far.
