However, it seems that the damage to his hand may not be connected to the accident as his GP referred him to a neurologist for further tests.

At Daisy and Daniel's wedding, Paul's boyfriend Billy notices he's concerned as he picks up a glass of champagne with his left hand.

Understandably, Paul is worried about how his condition could affect his work and admits to having spent every penny of his recent loan, having no idea how he's going to pay it off.

That's when Dee-Dee sweeps in to save the day, offering Paul some filing work at the law firm.
