Martin returns from hospital. Emma goes out shopping, but constantly worries about Ben. She gets Kevin to go and check up on Curly. Fred plans to steal Betty's hotpot recipe, but Betty, just returned from visiting Gordon, is soon wise to his idea. Sally is resentful that it was Gail that went to the hospital first, but Martin is reassuring - it is her that he loves. Sarah and Todd arrange to go for a pizza to get back at Candice. Les takes Sandra Milligan to the café. Jason is blown out by Maria and Candice. Everything goes wrong for Curly at the final moment just as Emma returns. Jason brings a girl to the Rovers and Maria is scathing. Sandra spends the night with Les.
