Rob tries to comfort Simon without giving himself away; he tells him he knows Peter would never kill anyone. He manages to restore Simon's faith in his father. Leanne gives evidence, telling the court about Peter cheating on her with Carla and attacking Nick with a metal bar. Carla tells Rob that taking Simon to Tina's grave was a bad judgement call. Leanne is forced to admit she assumed Carla had pushed Tina when she saw her on the balcony above Tina's body. Fiz and Tyrone invite Roy for dinner to cheer him up. He gets tetchy when he receives an invite from the hotel in Blackpool offering him and Hayley another night at a discount. Steve is nervous on the stand and keeps asking the barrister to repeat the questions. He blurts out that he advised Peter to "shut Tina up". Eva tells Todd to apply at Barlow's Buys. He isn't keen. Steve is unable to cope with the questioning and loses it, saying his friend killed Tina and it's his fault. The Barlows are stunned. Tracy and Rita bicker in court. The prosecution goes through the forensic evidence against Peter, including Steph's bracelet. Steve is wracked with guilt and feels useless. Michelle and Liz try to convince him it won't make a difference to the verdict. Leanne also feels guilty as she didn't get a chance to explain the circumstances of Peter attacking Nick. Ken is preparing himself for the worst. He's puzzled when Simon is confident that Peter will be found not guilty and hears about the chat Rob had with him. He tells Rob he'll have to pick up the pieces when the verdict doesn't go their way. Tracy grudgingly agrees to take on Todd. Eva also intends to find him a flat. David doesn't pick up on Kylie's hyper mood. Peter feels he's screwed.
