Steve urges Jim to think about the future they're all going to share together. Jim admits to Liz that he's frightened he'll never walk again. Les goes to court wearing a dog collar in the hope that the Magistrate will go easy on him. Des is confused when Samantha tells him that she doesn't care what he thinks and she's not interested in his money; she's having an abortion as she doesn't want to be a single mother. She is pleased when the news stirs him into action, asking her if she's made the right decision. Greg talks Mike into employing him as a sales consultant. Nick apologises to Leanne but she tells him that he has no idea what it means to be married; he never puts her first. Les gets an eighteen-month ban and is fined £200 - he rallies against the injustice of the legal system. He worries about Janice reading about it in the local paper. Sally is stunned when she receives a call saying her mother has died. She pushes Kevin away when he offers support. Natalie is convinced that Samantha is using her pregnancy to get at Des but he doesn't know how he feels about the situation. Nick is stunned when Leanne tells him that she wants a divorce.
