Phelan rages at being accused of rape. He tells Nicola that he loved her mother more than anyone. Nicola doesn't believe him as Anna and Lydia Hartman made the allegation against him independently of each other. Phelan protests his innocence and tells her that Anna and Lydia both hate him. Alya tells Luke that Aidan kissed her. Nicola finds the idea of two women crying rape preposterous. Phelan defends himself for having sex with Anna, calling it a transaction, which repulses her all the more. When she calls him evil, he realises he's lost her. Nicola tells him never to come near her again. Andy agrees to help Vinny. Phelan returns and drives the men to an abandoned mill. Luke goes for Aidan in the Rovers. Tyrone stops the pair from fighting. Nicola bangs on Eileen's door to let her know what kind of man she's married to. Anna stops her and advises her to concentrate on getting away from Phelan. Eileen answers the door as Nicola leaves the Street in a taxi. Vinny breaks free of his bonds and attacks Phelan while his back is turned. A timely warning from Andy allows Phelan to turn the tables on Vinny, violently beating him. Andy hopes that his show of loyalty will make Phelan reconsider but inside the mill, Phelan puts his gun in Andy's hand and orders him to shoot Vinny dead. Left with no choice, Andy pulls the trigger and kills Vinny before turning the gun towards Phelan. Phelan manages to talk him into exchanging the weapon for his freedom but once Phelan has the gun in his hand, he fires it at Andy. Phelan says a prayer for his victims before dumping the bodies in the millpond. Eileen calls Phelan to warn him that Anna has been talking to Nicola. Alya tells Aidan to move out but agrees to continue working with him. Phelan drops Anna's earring in Todd's office, by the window Seb was cleaning. Aidan sleeps in the empty factory. Anna is happy that she's turned Nicola against Phelan. Phelan ignores her barbs and joins Eileen and Shona for a glass of wine.
