Gary tells Judy that he's thinking of leaving her; they don't communicate and she's obsessed with Katie to the point there's no room for him in her life anymore. He's sick of supporting her as it makes him feel worthless. She realises that he's speaking the truth and apologises, begging him to stay as she loves him. He gets her to admit that Katie isn't theirs anymore. Toyah and Spider kidnap the turkey and take it to the park's pet corner. Gary packs all of Katie's things up, telling Judy they have to break with the past. He bumps into Liam Shepherd in the Street and frightens him off by threatening him with violence. He gives Zoe the baby clothes and apologises to her for trying to take her baby. She thanks him for being such a help at the birth. Les is furious to find that Toyah has freed the turkey. Liam tracks Zoe down and tells her they should sell the baby, take the money and then disappear without handing Shannon over. When she isn't keen he threatens to hit her but Ashley throws him out. Kevin tells Chris he had no choice but to sack him. He feels that he's ruined everything and wishes the last year had never happened. Chris tells Sally that Kevin still loves her. The turkey escapes and wanders back to the Street. Les tries to find it and drives off with Toyah but they accidentally run over the bird, killing it.
