Paradise Found is the twentieth episode of Series 8, and the final episode of the second part (Spring Term) of Series 8, as well as the 150th episode overall.


Final exams loom on the last day of term. Michael has stayed the night with Christine, but, to her annoyance, does not want their relationship to be public knowledge. Christine decides she needs more time with Connor, and organises a trip to Paris, unaware that the boy is secretly marrying Imogen. Scout's mother Tina is taken ill, having stolen items from the school house which she aimed to sell to finance a flat with her daughter. She dies repentant, and Scout, seeing her in a different light, is inspired to sit her exam and do well. Lorraine arranges a meeting with the head of a computer firm to market Kevin and Daniel's game Chalk and Cheese. Daniel is initially reluctant to attend but ends up being offered a job in computing in London, which Kevin persuades him to take. As the day ends, Kacey prepares for her gender identity course, whilst Michael admits his feelings for Christine, who is still unaware that she has a daughter-in-law, but accepts when Michael asks to take Connor's place on the Paris trip. Grantly is rushed to hospital, where he is diagnosed with chronic kidney failure and told he will need a transplant as soon as possible.
