Sharon is happy having Ian back in her bed. Roy and Hayley long for an emergency situation to put their medical knowledge into practice. Spider and Toyah are nervous as Emily and Maud return from holiday. Emily knows immediately that her back room has been redecorated and is angry that Spider broke his word to her. Toyah takes the blame and shocks Emily by revealing that she and Spider have their own flat. Rita knows Sharon is seeing Ian again and is angry that she's lying to her, hiding the fact. Ian tells Sharon to stop worrying so much about their relationship and to just enjoy herself. She knows she's in love with him again.
