Steve's glad that Karen seems to be back to her normal self. She throws a sickie and starts smoking again. Steve suggests that she goes shopping but Karen insists she visit her mother's grave instead to say goodbye. Ciaran's hurt that Tracy let him down on his opening night. Tracy promises to turn up this evening instead. Karen talks to her mother's grave and tells her that she intends to be the best possible wife to Steve. Steve's touched. Ciaran is offended by an article in the Gazette criticising his restaurant. Tracy turns up at McCarthy's and is rude to the customers. Ciaran tells her off so she leaves in a strop. Only the Platts and the Croppers are booked in for dinner. Ciaran fires Sarah when she drops two trays of glasses. Norris and Rita meet up with Rula for dinner. Norris is put-out when Rula introduces her husband Bernie. However, he perks up when Rula suggests that they meet up again. Leanne resolves to take Dev to court for unfair dismissal. She phones Maya. Tracy needles away at Karen accusing her of being jealous because they've got Amy, their own flesh and blood. Furious Karen blurts out that she's expecting a baby too. Steve's shocked.
