Hayley irons Roy's best shirt for the funeral. Sinead moves into No.5. Roy buys cards from the Kabin for Hayley to write to Ruby, Hope and Joseph. Roy pleads with Hayley to see that there is still joy to be had, but she stands firm, saying that she won't be in control for much longer. Having made her peace, she's ready to go. She tells Roy they should be proud of the lives they've touched and makes him promise that he'll be her eyes, ears and heart for years to come. He leads her to the bedroom, where she has prepared a lethal cocktail overdosed with her medicine. She asks him not to touch anything. Tyrone searches the cafe for Ruby's stuffed kangaroo and insists on checking the flat too. Anna lets him check with Roy but Roy refuses to let him in. Tyrone feels guilty for disturbing them, while Anna realises what's happening and closes the cafe, sitting alone in the dark. Hayley and Roy have a final conversation, reminiscing about the past. She says she knows what it is to be loved thanks to him. He breaks down. Hayley says that she is so sorry, but she has to go. Hayley quickly downs the glass, though Roy tries to stop her. He tells her that he loves her. Seeing the cafe in darkness, Carla knocks on the door and asks to see Hayley. Anna weakly tries to say everything is fine but Carla rushes upstairs. As soon as they enter the room, they find Roy cradling a lifeless Hayley in the bedroom.
