Alya is surprised to learn that Gary has a girlfriend and son and panics him by asking if they've met before. He rushes Izzy away as quickly as possible. Michael tells Gail he's come because of her letter and shows it to her. She's confused and realises David and Kylie are behind it. Leanne decides to fight for the bistro and refuses to let Nick sack her. Gary pretends to have left his phone at the gym so he can speak to Alya. Kylie admits to writing the letter but doesn't apologise and calls Michael a lowlife. He feels uncomfortable and leaves. Gail feels sorry for him. Katy worries about her job when Alya decides to work at the gym until she finds something else. Tracy decides to keep the charm bracelet. Rob tells her he'll be back to normal soon. Steve picks up Michelle in his taxi. He refuses to go to the party even though everyone is waiting for him as he has nothing to celebrate. Gary begs Alya not to tell anyone about last night. Katy sees them talking. Alya agrees to go for a drink with Katy. Michelle insists on Steve driving her to Weatherfield Quays, where he opens up about his feelings on turning forty. He reveals he's still upset about his handling of the Tina situation and thinks he's a coward. Michelle defends him. Jason is amused by Gary's predicament. Michelle tells Steve to change his life if he doesn't like it. He decides to go to the party after all, where he declares he's going to be a success and retire before he's fifty. He surprises Michelle by carrying her into the house. Alya tells Gary nothing happened between them. He's relieved but knows he's not off the hook yet.
