AIRED:
Lucy sneaks home after spending the night with Jake. She finds a new message on the answer machine, it's from Pete who tells Eileen that he's made a mistake and that he'll be home today to make things right - Lucy deletes the message! As night becomes morning, Dave and Jake finish off their packing. They talk about the next step in their lives. Dave seems worried that rekindling his relationship with Lucy might have made Jake think again about going to Scotland with him. But apparently not. Jake pays Lucy a visit at the cafe and without warning he asks her to go with him to Scotland! She says she's not so sure but when she hears that Dave invited Eileen it becomes a different matter . . . Lucy goes to see her mum. Eileen and Lucy talk things through. Soon, they emerge and as Eileen drags Dave off to one side, Lucy tells Jake that she wants to go with him! He is delighted! Meanwhile, Eileen keeps Dave waiting for an answer, he thinks she's going to say "no" but then she turns around and accepts his offer! All seems well as a black cab pulls up outside the Swan. Pete emerges and disappears inside . . . Upstairs at the Swan, Pete finds Eileen packing a bag. He tries to tell her how sorry he is, she tells him that it's too late! Their conversation moves into their living room. Pete becomes emotional: he tells Eileen how he's spent the last day wondering around the neighborhood where he grew up, where he spent his days wandering around afraid to go home where his stepfather would beat him - he thought the reason he wanted another child was so he could prove how much better he was than his stepfather but yesterday he found out that he doesn't want any child - he wants Eileen's child and asks her to reconsider her decision . . . Eileen is adamant when she tells him that she won't try again. Pete accepts this and tells Eileen that if not having kids is the price he has to pay to be with her, he will pay it . . . Eileen thinks but then Lucy enters. Pete begs Lucy to make her mum see that she's making a mistake but Lucy sides with Eileen and the mother and daughter duo walk out on Pete . . . Downstairs, Eileen hands Dave her bag and he puts it in the car. Eileen goes to say goodbye to her neighbors. Chrissy asks her if this is what she really wants, Eileen refuses to answer the question directly - leaving Chrissy doubting whether or not Eileen's doing the right thing . . . Meanwhile, as Dave packs the car, Pete comes out of the Swan. He tells Dave that he's not surprised that it's him who's helping his wife make her getaway. Pete tells Dave that Eileen doesn't love him, or care for him and that the second he drops her off at the station or wherever they're going, she won't keep in touch. Dave turns to Pete and can't help but rub his old rival's face in it. Dave tells Pete that Eileen's coming with him! Their discussion immediately becomes more heated before the men throw themselves at one and other. Passers by like Jake, Olly and Les run to pry Pete and Dave apart. Eileen comes out of the Costellos in time to see the fight being broken up. Pete returns to the pub while Dave is invited to the cafe to have his cuts taken care of. While Dave is being seen to, Olly confronts Jake and asks him directly if Lucy is going with him to Scotland. Jake tells him that she is. Olly accepts this, now he seems to be able to see how much these two love each other . . . Dave soon ushers Jake to the door and they head back out onto the street where their car waits for them. As Eileen and Lucy get into the car, Pete once again returns to the street. He approaches Eileen, Dave steps in his way but Pete tells him that he just wants to say goodbye to his wife. Dave stands down and Pete pulls Eileen to one side, begging her to reconsider. Eileen tells him that she can't - it's over. Unable to watch Eileen drive away, Pete goes back inside the pub. Eileen goes to get in the car. She hesitates. Dave says: "Look after yourself, Eileen" - they both know she's not getting in the car . . . Dave hands Eileen her bag and seeing that he mum isn't coming, Lucy gets out of the car and tells Jake she has to stay. Jake tells Lucy that she has to start living her own life. Lucy promises Jake they'll still be together, she'll come later. Jake lets her go and goes to get in the car. Dave makes sure this is what Jake really wants, Jake reassures him that it is. They get into the car and disappear down Stanley Street as Lucy waves them off . . . Back upstairs at the Swan, Pete struggles to hold back tears as he hears the car drive off. But then he hears footsteps coming up the stairs. He turns to find Eileen . . .moreless
