Since Lance’s death, Adeen has been in emotional freefall and the night before reaches a zenith. Padraig offers a shoulder to cry on. Eileen is also worried. Where is Peter and why didn’t he turn up at the christening? Eileen and Rosin find him in a desperate state which swiftly informs Eileen about the demons of Peter’s past.
