It is the day of Kevin and Sally's wedding. Sally is in torment not knowing whether to stay with Kevin for the sake of the girls or follow her heart with Alex Jordan. Doreen and Norris discuss their suspicions regarding the Nelson family. They are both adamant that Tommy must have seen Blanche's attacker. Vik and Maria arrive back from their holiday bickering. Maria accuses Vik of having ignored her all holiday and finishes with him. Vik insists on taking both the suitcases back to his flat despite Maria's protests. Blanche tries to buy Tommy a drink to say thank-you but Tommy makes his excuses and leaves the Rovers. Everyone agrees that they're a strange family. Kevin and Sally are in the car outside the Register Office when Sally tells him that she's in love with Alex. Kevin is initially angry but then decides he still wants to get married and make a go of it. Sally doesn't know what to do. Back in his flat, Vik takes two packages of drugs out of his suitcase. Steve arrives wanting to talk to Vik about the missing money and Vik's disappearance. Vik seems very edgy and tells Steve that he can't discuss things now as he's got to meet somebody. Just as Kevin and Sally enter the Register Office, Alex appears and begs Sally to come with him. Sally has to make a decision.
