When Cleo refuses to continue her "relationship" with him, Pete leaves Reenie, knowing that this will cause Reenie's drinking to spiral out of control. Subsequently, Cleo begs for him to return and he does so on the understanding that she will go along with what he wants. Upon his return he proposes to Reenie, but privately tells Cleo that this is so he can be closer to Cleo. Pete grows extremely jealous of Cleo's relationship with her boyfriend, Harry, even persuading Jack Osborne to rethink his decision of letting Cleo work for him during the summer. To prevent Cleo from going to see Harry, Pete has sex with Cleo. After months of the secret relationship, Cleo tells Harry Thompson about her relationship. Harry is disgusted and goes to tell Reenie and her family on her wedding day to Pete. When Harry bursts in, he reveals it. No one believes him, until one-by-one, The McQueen's realise. Pete then leaves.

The day after the wedding, Reenie and Porsche give statements to the police about Pete, however Cleo refuses to.
