Leanne worries when Amy disappears. Mark accuses Linda of playing games with him. Dev isn't bothered to hear Amy has disappeared, knowing its just part of her game. Tom is sad on his mother's birthday. He refuses to go to her grave with Duggie, saying he won't play happy families. Duggie tells him they can't ignore each other as he's going to be around all the time. He is hurt when Tom tells him to realise he's not wanted. To fend off a cold, Gwen hits the whisky at lunchtime and is sent home by Mark who says she's not fit to work after she cuts her finger.
