Twentieth and final episode of Series 5.


When Finn's parents tell him they are moving away with him, he persuades the increasingly dependent Amy to take part in a suicide pact with him, but they are prevented by Chris, who follows them to the beach where they intend to die. The prom looks to be in danger of cancellation when the hotel hosting it is flooded but fortunately Ollie comes to the rescue, impressing Steph. Despite having gone to the prom with different partners, Sambuca and Bolton realise their attraction to each other and reconcile. Adam is perturbed that Rachel is still putting the school before their relationship, especially when she forgets to book the honeymoon hotel because of the concern over Amy and Finn. And so to prove him wrong, she resigns, to move away with him. Jo and Kim also leave.
