Steve's utterly appalled at Kylie trying to sell her son. He makes it clear to her that he won't even consider it but Becky's clearly taken by the idea. Panicked Claire prepares to take Freddie to hospital. Ashley finally admits that the pills were only indigestion tablets as he hasn't suffered an angina attack. Claire's too concerned about Freddie to react and dashes off to the hospital. Eileen takes Joshua trick-or-treating. Becky's furious with Steve for rejecting Kylie's suggestion out of hand. She points out that Max needs parents who would love him rather than sell him, but Steve maintains that the idea's totally immoral. Steve's stunned when Becky declares that they come from two different worlds and their marriage is over. She walks out. Michelle's bemused as John continues to brood over the note attached to the wreath. Steve tells Becky they will buy Max from Kylie. John retrieves the note from the wreath in the Rovers' dustbin. It reads "No resting place for a scholar". John's fears are confirmed: this is to do with Colin's death. Michelle tells Ciaran that he needs to tell Liz he's leaving soon. John's in a state about the note. He gets a nasty shock when he comes face-to-face with the Grim Reaper in the ginnel but it's Eileen in fancy dress with skeleton Joshua. Claire's back from the hospital and Freddie's fine. Ashley apologises for lying but Claire concedes she forced him into it and understands he can't leave Weatherfield. She calmly informs him therefore she and the boys will move to France without him. Becky and Steve call on Kylie and Dimitri. They tell Kylie they will pay her but she will have to wait a week for the money. She gives them until Monday or she's taking Max abroad.
