However, it is clear Daniel is lying.

And, when Adam confronts him about Nicky, he’s shocked when Daniel admits they slept together.

When Daniel asks Nicky if they can have a proper relationship it appears he is determined to save her from a life of vice.

But Adam is adamant he’s making a big mistake and tries to warn him away from Nicky.
