Zak can't help but feel guilty for having fun without Lisa though, and storms out. Faith later manages to get Zak back into talking about their past, but as they talk about the old times, they end up sharing a kiss. Later, Zak struggles with his guilt and thinks that they should come clean, but the next day as they talk about it some more at the Woolpack in the cellar, Bear suddenly enters, and they quickly go to hide. However, the pair don't stay hidden for long as Faith and the fuse box get soaked by beer when the hose is forced off the barrel, and as a result, the power goes out upstairs, leaving all eyes on a guilty Bear. Drenched, Faith and Zak creep out of the cellar, causing Bear to be suspicious. Bear's then left mortified when Faith reveals that Zak is illiterate in order to protect her own secret of kissing Zak.
