Carla and Peter continue to talk at cross purposes about Peter's admission of guilt regarding Frank's murder until Peter admits to a stunned Carla he of course didn't do it. Brian meets Julie outside the factory, still covered in chip shop food, and she consoles him. Brian's anger is inflamed when he sees Kylie laughing at them. Karl thanks Sunita for not mentioning the call from the casino to Stella. He asks if she'd care to join him but, although torn, she declines his offer to go to the casino.

Kevin is surprised when Sally tells him that she will go to Frank's funeral to support Anne, who has no-one else.
