David goes to visit Audrey and tells her that they are moving to the other side of Manchester. Todd is cross with Sarah who insists that she must go and see Aidan. Richard and Gail tells Martin that they will be moving to Wentworth Meadows, half an hour away but that he can visit David any time he likes. Betty is puzzled when Fred takes little interest in Joshua and she has to see to him. Sarah visits Aidan in the Remand Centre. Aidan tells her that the police have found that the vodka he drank the night of the murder was spiked with Diazepam which knocked him out for the night meaning he couldn't have committed the murder. Peter and Shelley have Deirdre, Ken, Blanche and Tracy round for Sunday lunch. Tracy upsets everyone by bringing Dev with her. Dev leaves but the party is ruined. Richard gives Gail an eternity ring. Gail is ecstatic. Emma tells Curly that she's hoping to be promoted to Inspector which will mean attending a two week residential course. Later Deirdre and Tracy have a blazing row over her bringing Dev to Peter and Shelley's lunch. Ashley finds Fred looking at the family tree. He tells Fred that he intends to bring up Joshua as his own and that unless Fred can do the same - as Joshua's granddad - then their relationship is over. Sarah bumps into Audrey and tells her that Aidan is innocent of the murder. Audrey and Archie conclude that Richard is the one who drugged Aidan and attacked Maxine and Emily.
