Kevin and Molly agree that they'll lie to Pam, tell her their relationship is over and then resume their affair once the dust has settled. Jake calls in the Rovers wrapped only in a towel.

Tony's taken to hospital. The Registrar tells Roy that Tony has suffered a massive heart attack and is unlikely to survive the night. Roy tries in vain to contact Maria. Leanne agrees to help Peter out at the bookies on an ad hoc basis. Tony talks to Roy about his family history of heart disease. Roy listens patiently. Roy tells Tony about his bat-watch meetings. Tony's scathing and tells Roy to bog off back to his "man-wife". Roy leaves feeling hurt. Molly convinces Pam that she and Kevin have seen the error of their ways thanks to her and ended their affair. Pam's pleased and gives Molly a hug. Jake picks Michelle up in his truck.
