Alma's friends are grieving over her death. Audrey seems to be taking the loss particularly badly. She feels guilty for not being there for Alma at the end. Mike is also mourning his ex-wife. He has resorted to sleeping in the spare room, due to Linda's infidelity. She tries in vain to console him. Maxine continues to pester Ashley about a holiday abroad. She suggests Ireland, as they can take a ferry and avoid his fear of flying. Curly confronts Emma about a story in the papers concerning an incident with the armed police. Emma denies being involved. She has put off telling her colleagues about her pregnancy, as she doesn't want to be stuck behind a desk. She now agrees to tell them. Roy is still worried about Wayne, and Hayley is shocked when he suggests they give in to Alex Swinton's demands and pay him the money. He believes Social Services have failed Wayne; he could not live with himself if Swinton did something to the boy. Mike pays Audrey a visit to help with the arrangements for Alma's funeral. Audrey finds a video, to be played after the funeral, at Alma's request. Roy secretly meets Alex Swinton in the Rovers. He arranges to pay him on the condition that no one finds out.
