The Ramsdens talk about making a fresh start away from the Street. As Gail hammers on the door there is an explosion from inside the shop. David wakes up. Terrified and choking on smoke fumes he tries to wake Martin. Richard tries to calm Gail who is hysterical with fear. David, unable to rouse Martin, tries to drag him out when Richard comes to the rescue, but David insists on still helping lift his dad to safety. The fire brigade arrive, then Richard and David emerge with Martin. Sally arrives with Kevin and is distraught to see all the damage. Les gives Janice a smoke alarm. Martin agrees to stay at Gail's while they clean up his flat. Matt decides he will leave with Charlie and they drive off together. Audrey pokes fun at Roy's efforts over the historical re-enactment, but Norris offers to help. Ken is covering for Charlie's classes. Maxine informs Ashley that the Ramsdens have gone and they can now get on with their lives, but Ashley is adamant. Eileen takes Sally a bottle of wine to cheer her up.
