They head off for the pizza restaurant and Brian can hardly get a word in edgeways as an excited Sean tries to make up for all the Fathers’ Day meals he has missed out on. But the wind is taken out of Sean’s sails when Brian drops a bombshell that sends him reeling and wishing that he had never dug up the past. Amber is also looking forward to spending Fathers’ Day with her dad but she is also disappointed when it becomes clear that Dev is only interested in the twins. Even a card from Amber can’t lighten his mood and she can’t help but feel second best. More problems of the paternal kind for Danny and Jamie, after Leanne’s failed attempts to get them to reconcile. Danny tries to make amends but Jamie makes it clear that he can never forgive his father – whatever day it is! Amber decides to try and make Dev feel better and sends him a card from the twins. Her plan works initially and Dev’s mood brightens considerably until he calls Sunita and discovers she didn’t send the card. As usual Amber bears the brunt of his bad temper and it does her bid to stay with Dev over the summer no good at all. Meanwhile the other teenagers on the Street are giving their parents the run around.
