It’s the morning after Liam and Carla's night together. Liam comes out of the bathroom and starts gathering his clothes. Carla appears teasing him with his shirt. Liam feels awkward and says one of them should be opening the factory. Carla and Liam pull up outside the factory, as Maria approaches Carla tells him to think fast. Liam lies and tells her they have been out for breakfast. Maria tells him she wants them to register the baby's death. Liam agrees. They set off together, very distant and not knowing what to say to each other.

At the factory Liam is deep in thought at his desk. Carla comes over and says she is going home. She drops a key to her flat in front of Liam, he doesn't touch it. Carla tells him they are right for each other and that he knows where she is. She bends down to kiss him but he shakes his head. She leaves him lost in his thoughts.

At the Battersbys, Fiz is making a fuss over an unwell Chesney. Fiz is still convinced that Chesney is too poorly for school and as she leaves the house she bumps into Kirk and Julie. Julie starts fussing over Chesney also, much to Fiz's annoyance.

Over at the Platts, Gail has telephoned Tina's mother letting her know that Tina is okay. Whilst Ted and Gail are looking through old photographs there is a knock at the door. Tina's mother Anna McIntyre barges in demanding to know what Tina is playing at. Anna and Tina argue after Anna calls David a criminal and Tina admits to her mother about the baby. The argument esculates and Gail wastes no time in throwing Anna out.

Elsewhere, Liz is missing Vernon and keeping herself busy by doing jobs in the bar. Steve tells Betty how his mother is pining for Vernon, but when Harry appears Liz is all smiles and eager to serve him. Also, Leanne starts work behind the bar at the Rovers Return.
