Sharon meets Chrissy in the street and she asks Chrissy why she's doing this again and offers her help. From out of no where, Gary comes and pushes Sharon away from Chrissy. Sharon walks off. Lucy sees Sharon talking to Chrissy and goes to see Bradley. He tells her that he doesn't plan to go to the police but instead that he's planning to go off around the world like he'd planned and he asks Lucy to go with him. She agrees and goes to pack her things while Bradley heads next door to get his stuff from the Costellos. On their way out, they run into an unfamiliar face who turns out to be Conrad's ex-wife! She comes in and tells Conrad that she's planning on moving out of the country with her new man. Conrad tells her that he won't let her take his children away with her but she says that she doesn't plan to take the kids, that she'd prefer if they stayed with him. That's not exactly what he had in mind and they argue with raised voices. From next door, Gary bangs on the wall and tells them to keep it down. Conrad shouts back that Gary's all talk! Moments later, a brick flies through the front room window of the house! Conrad picks up the brick, goes outside and finds Gary gloating from where the brick must have been thrown!

Chloe asks Myra if it's her fault nobody likes each other anymore? Myra tells her that it's nobody's fault. Chloe says that she didn't like what Bradley did to her and Myra reassures her that she did the right thing in telling the truth and says that she's a very brave girl. Meanwhile, Chrissy encounters Sharon in the street, Sharon tells her to stop lying. Seeing that Sharon is threatening Chrissy, Gary comes from over the road and removes Sharon's arm from Chrissy's then holds Chrissy's hand and tells Sharon to back off. They go into the house where they ask Chloe if she'd mind being brave a little bit longer and to telling the police what Bradley did to her a few more times. Chloe says that she wouldn't because telling the truth was the right thing to do. Meanwhile, Mel gets a call from Lucy who wants to meet up with her. When they meet, Lucy tells Mel that Bradley's planning on doing a runner and it's clear that she's beginning to doubt whether or not he's been lying about Chloe . . . Mel takes Lucy back to the Costello's and tells Gary and Chrissy what Lucy said. Gary calls the police, as he does, Lucy has second thoughts but Gary calls anyway. Feeling guilty, Lucy runs out. As he puts the phone down, Gary hears shouting next door and bangs on the wall for them to shut up. All he gets is Conrad shouting back that Gary's "all talk". Angry, Gary heads for the front door but Chrissy holds him back and tells him that won't solve anything. Then they hear shattering glass next door. They head outside where a crowd is beginning to gather. Seeing that somebody has broken next door's window, Gary stands opposite it and smiles in disbelief! Then, Conrad comes out of the house and accuses Gary of throwing the brick. The two of them get into a fight. In all the excitement, Bradley slips out of the house and heads down the street.

Pete rushes upstairs and has it out with Sam. Pete ends up beating Sam, leaving him with a scar across his face and a cut on his lip. Sam runs. Pete decides that he, Eileen and Lucy have to escape. They start packing . . . meanwhile, Sam heads to the Cafe to find Lucy. She bandages him up. They start to bicker when Sam doesn't tell Lucy why he and Pete got into a fight. Denise suggests that Lucy should take her break. Leaving Sam in the cafe, Lucy goes into the street where Dave has come to find her. He tells her what Sam knows and that Pete wants them all to run away. When they get to the pub, Lucy tells Pete and Eileen what a stupid idea it is. With help from Eileen, Pete agrees that running away might not be the best decision; after all, Sam had no evidence at which point he notices that Eileen is looking a bit guilty - what is she hiding? Eileen manages to convince Pete that she isn't hiding anything and together they realise that somebody has to find Sam and convince him not to tell the police anything. Eileen is more concerned that Sam will show Pete the tape and so she has to keep them apart. She goes to find Sam . . . Dave tells her that Sam was last seen in the cafe and so Eileen goes there. She finds Sam on the phone to the police around the corner from the cafe. He points out that this is where she killed Roy and she tells him that a day won't go by that she won't regret what she's done and have to live with the consequences. Sam tells Eileen that he won't let Pete et away with just dumping Mike's body like that (especially after the damage Pete's just caused him). Sam seems almost convinced, he tells Eileen he'll think about it and refuses to hand over the tape before disappearing. As Eileen heads back to the pub, she runs into Trish who's all ready to move in. Back at the pub, the police show up. Pete tells Dave and Lucy to go upstairs and hide everything that looks like they were planning to run while he stalls the police. When they ask if Sam is at the pub, Pete tells them he's not but the detective doesn't believe him and so wants to see upstairs. Pete tells her that she can't keep harassing him and his family like this. In spite of that she manages to push her way past and up to the flat. She finds nothing. Back on the street, Eileen explains to Trish how everything is a bit mad at the pub at the moment so now probably isn't the best time to stay. Dave comes out of the pub and Eileen asks him if he knows anywhere Trish could stay. He offers her his spare room which she seems happy with. Eileen goes inside to find the police on their way out. She acts like she wasn't expecting them. Pete, Eileen and Lucy all confirm that they haven't seen Sam in ages. Lucy excuses herself saying that she has to get back to work. Outside, she sees Sam across the street. She begs him not to tell the police anything but he tells her that it would probably be in Eileen's best interest if he told them the truth.

He thought he and Tanya were finished and he'd got drunk, not that that was an excuse. Nick also tells Sean that it's not the idea of Tanya having a baby with Sean that upsets him; it's that fact that she's having a baby at all. He has a son and knows how much maintenance kids need. Gradually Sean comes round to Nick's way of thinking. Later, Tanya comes home. Sean rushes to meet her at the front door. He tells her that there's someone to see her and she knows straight away that it's Nick. Tanya shouts at Nick, Nick begs for forgiveness.

    Eileen told Dave how the fire came about. She told him that she couldn't stand Pete for what he'd done to her and her family. Dave told her that she'd put him in a very awkward position but she argued that he must have thought about doing something like this to Pete. When she mentions Josh, Dave tells her that this fire had nothing to do with Josh. Eileen broke down. She asked Dave if he would go to the police. He told her that he didn't know what to do.

He said not to. Tanya was embarrassed at her mum's behaviour towards Nick. She jokingly said that perhaps she should meet his family so that they could embarrass him.

The doctor tells her that it's not due to her drinking. When the doctor's are done he asks to see her. Justin tells Kelly about his mum and how he used to blame himself for her death but after a while realised that it wasn't his fault. He told her that she shouldn't blame herself for what had happened to the baby. They held hands but were soon interrupted by Denise and Les, who'd been brought to the hospital by Gary. Kelly figured out that something had happened in the pub after she'd left. Meanwhile, Justin is comforted by Gary. Later, Les comes out of Kelly's room. He asks Justin to leave and tells him that he can't do anything else for her. When Les goes back into Kelly's room the doctor has just finished a scan. She tells Kelly and her parents that Kelly was carrying twins - and that she only lost one of them!!! Kelly can't believe that she's still pregnant!!!moreless
