Distraught Natalie reaches Leeds General only to discover from Mrs Ferris, the Hospital Administrator, that Tony isn't there. She phones him up and finds he's perfectly well. Sally is flustered when Greg makes it clear to her that he's interested in her. Leanne has hysterics when someone calls at the house fearing it's Darren Whateley. She tells Nick they'll have to go to the police as she needs to know Darren is going to be locked up. When Kevin suggests taking out a loan to buy Natalie out of the garage, Sally tells him it's a stupid idea and says he should use her inheritance. Natalie accuses Samantha of sending her off to Leeds out of spite, telling her that she's sick. Samantha breaks down as Natalie goes for her. Nick and Leanne tell the police that Darren broke into their house and threatened her. They are promised that Darren will go back to prison. Greg suggests to Maxine that if she had a place of her own he'd see more of her. Natalie tells the Rovers staff that Samantha made the phone call up and resigns. Samantha tells Betty that she thinks it was Sally who made a malicious phone call.
