Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 1771
AIRED:
Gary and Chrissy began with a quiet night in. Gary tells Chrissy that he worried about Chloe; he doesn't think he's doing enough for her. Chrissy tries to persuade him not to come to the hospital with her but he says that he hasn't been to any of Chloe's hospital appointments and she's going to start thinking that he doesn't care. Mel goes out with Brendan for the evening. Not long after, Gary tells Chrissy that he's covering a mate's shift on the cabs - he could be back late. Later, Mel returns early. She tells Chrissy that Brendan wanted an early night. Right behind her, Gary comes in. The girls comment that he stinks of cheap perfume. He tells them it's because of the Essex girls he's just had in the back of his cab. He quickly goes to bed leaving Chrissy alone to watch TV. The next morning, Chrissy tells Mel that they could go shopping together at lunch time if she'd like. They can buy some new clothes and put it on the credit card. Later, they do so. Gary catches them and tells them that someone's going to have to pay for that credit card! Before he can give them a real telling off he receives a call on his radio and has to go on a job. Later again, Chrissy and Denise talk about how nice it is that Brendan and Melanie are together. Denise tells her that the longest Brendan's had a girlfriend for is 3 weeks. Gary then confronts Mel and tells her that he doesn't approve of her seeing somebody that they hardly know. Chrissy points out that's the wrong way to go about things and by saying things like that he's only going to push them closer together. Geri returns. She tells Cat that Yasmin and Marc deserve each other. Cat tells Geri of her problems with Doug. Kelly and Justin come back from the hospital after the ultrasound. They're very friendly. Les sees Justin and is disapproving. Throughout the day Justin has to decide what to do about Kelly's baby. Later, he comes to the conclusion that he couldn't be a very good father at the moment. He can barely look after himself. He tells Kelly that he will support her and the baby financially but can't play a bigger role. Kelly accepts it. They agree to be friends. Lucy tells Pete and Eileen hat they're crazy to even consider going on the run. The police will catch them and they'll both go to prison. She storms out. Pete decides to lie low for the night and decide what to do in the morning. Later, Eileen is panicking about Lucy. Dave guesses that Pete had been in touch. He finds Pete and Eileen's passports and puts two and two together. Dave tells her that she can't leave, he tells her that he cares about her and that he doesn't want to see her get hurt. Eileen begs Dave not to tell Cheryl about her plans with Pete. In the morning, Lucy still isn't home. Eileen is very worried. Eventually, Lucy comes home. Eileen tells her where she's meeting Pete. Lucy tells Eileen that she'd promised never to leave her again, Eileen apologises. Lucy leaves again. While Eileen is packing her things upstairs in the pub, Dave and Cheryl are talking downstairs. Dave tells her about Eileen and Pete's plan. Cheryl sets off to try and find Lucy. Eileen heads to an old warehouse where she's going to meet Pete. Meanwhile, Cheryl catches up with Lucy who slowly confesses everything. Including where Pete and her mum are meeting. Cheryl quickly calls her supervisor. Eileen and Pete meet. Eileen tells him that she can't leave Lucy again. He understands. Before he can make a move on his own, however, they hear cars outside - it's the police! Pete figures out that Lucy must have alerted them thinking she was doing the right thing. The police enter the building and arrest Pete . . . again!moreless
