Katy and Ryan continue kissing but spring apart when Dev walks in. Flustered, Katy promptly tells him that she's quitting her job because Chesney objects. Dev's annoyed. Gloria angrily accuses Eva of trying to steal her man, and refuses to fork out for a fancy funeral for Eric. Eva protests and insists they will split the cost. Chesney complains to Fiz about Katy putting work before her family. Fiz points out that he needs the extra money for the family and should be supporting Katy's work. Eva and Gloria discuss funeral costs. To raise funds, Eva decides she will sell the necklace Eric gave her, and orders Gloria to flog his diamond ring. Gloria refuses. Eva thinks that proves she was just a gold-digger and felt nothing for Eric. Chesney feels guilty when Katy reveals that she's resigned from the kebab shop. Under pressure from Stella, Karl and Eva, Gloria capitulates and agrees to sell Eric's ring to help pay for the funeral. Lloyd explains to Steve how Mandy tricked him. Steve advises him to grovel his way back into her favour. Paul's mortified to discover that Sean has invited the factory girls to watch him get his kit off with his workmates. Ryan lurks in the ginnel waiting for Katy. He apologises for getting carried away and begs her to come back to work. Katy's adamant that she won't return. Fiz admits to Tina that she fears Tyrone will be convicted. Tina comforts her. Chesney asks Dev to re-employ Katy, promising not to interfere in her work again. Dev grudgingly agrees and offers Katy her job back. With Chesney giving his full blessing, Katy has no choice but to accept. Tracy, Beth and Sean tease Paul about his forthcoming performance. Eileen applauds his bravery in the name of charity. Gloria admits she doesn't know what to do with her life now Eric's gone. Stella invites her to move back into the Rovers permanently. Gloria's touched. Eva and Gloria make up and agree to put the Eric business behind them. Lloyd apologises to Mandy for deceiving her. Mandy has one last joke at his expense by making him say sorry to Flash too. Lloyd's relieved that he's forgiven. Katy tells Ryan she's returning to work but assures him it's nothing to do with him, and their kiss was a mistake. Karl hangs back at closing time with Stella. He pleads for another chance and makes digs about Jason. Stella insists that it's over but Karl grabs her and tries to kiss her. Alarmed, Stella slaps his face and throws him out.
