There is a tense atmosphere at No 1 as Peter and Rob trade insults. Although Carla is not up to seeing visitors, she changes her mind when Roy arrives. He gives her one of Hayley's handkerchiefs as a keepsake, and Carla breaks down in tears. Audrey reluctantly agrees to go with Gail to the restorative justice session. Maddie is delighted to be invited to go to Devon and stay with Ben and his foster parents for a week and tells Sophie that she is invited too. She is surprised to learn that they are leaving that afternoon. Carla cries as she tells Roy that the lost baby was a girl. Tired of hearing snide comments about Peter, Tracy lets slip to Michelle that Steve was at the police station again. Michelle’s immediately suspicious and demands to know what’s going on. Desperate not to give Tim a chance to propose, Sally tries to find any excuse she can not to go out and socialise with him, even cancelling their weekend away. He insists on a meal at Nick's Bistro though. Steve confesses he knew of Peter's affair to Michelle. She lets rip at him. Gail and Audrey arrive at the prison and Gail is led into her session with Michael Rodwell. Sally summons Julie in a panic. She suggests Sally says "yes" to the proposal and then leads him on with a long engagement. Michelle angrily tells Steve he is a coward who has blood on his hands. Rob brings Carla home. On the step, Peter begs her forgiveness but the door is shut in his face with the news that the dead baby was a girl. Over dinner at the bistro, Tim announces that he’s got something for Sally and he’s going to nip home. She waits uncomfortably. Telling Steve that he sickens her, Michelle packs her bags and walks out on him.
