Billy witnessed a big fight between Dawn and her son. While Martin was crying in bed, Billy approached him for a talk. They bonded. Alison confided in Billy that she didn't want kids. When Martin's father, Rob, barged in and verbally abused Dawn, Billy threw him out. Dawn pressed for Billy to either commit or leave. Billy chose to leave.
