Michael realises that he needs to discredit Jean by making people believe that her accusations are just a fantasy. Sitting in Butcher's Joints, Michael gets an idea when he spots all of the spare keys that Janine has for her client's homes. Michael then invites Jean round to Janine's house later, claiming that he wants to fix things. However, alone with Janine, Michael slyly tells her that Jean has become obsessed with him. As the day continues, Jean turns up at Janine's place as arranged, finding that the front door is open and nobody is inside. She sits and waits for Michael, but it's a surprised Janine who eventually turns up. Wondering what Jean is doing there, Janine realises Michael could be right and immediately sends her away.
Later, a distressed Jean finally tells Roxy everything. Roxy then joins Jean in confronting Michael, demanding that he tells the truth. Michael maintains that it's all in Jean's mind, but Roxy doesn't believe him. Soon afterwards, Michael catches Roxy searching through his office files for evidence. Continuing his malicious lies, Michael tells Roxy that Amy isn't safe with Jean, as he found Jean cradling Amy's cardigan at work and knows that she has a picture of the youngster in her purse.
Michael's cruel plan continues to play out when Janine's handbag goes missing and she finds it in Jean's locker, as arranged by her scheming husband-to-be. Now convinced that Michael is innocent, Janine publicly brands Jean a "psycho" at The Vic. Michael suggests that they should take the argument upstairs, but when they do, they hear baby music coming from Jean's bedroom. Walking into Jean's room, they're presented with a disturbing scene of various baby items, a doll wearing Amy's christening bracelet, and even Janine's baby scan. Jean is distraught to realise that Michael has framed her, but will anyone believe what she has to say?
