Matthew is frustrated to learn that his father's will confirms that it was his wish for Rosemary to be buried alongside him. Whilst Jimmy and Carl are resigned to this fact, Matthew is still vehemently angry. Later that day, as the funeral procession reaches the graveyard, Grayson is horrified to see Matthew filling in the grave with a shovel. Gray loses it and the pair brawl in the mud. The police show up and Matthew is taken away but swears that it's not over. Meanwhile, at the hospital, Donald continues to play games with Nicola when she gives him details of private nursing agencies. Donald asks why he should want anyone else but her to be by his side. He says that she's described what seems to be a perfect marriage so he would like her to be the one by his side day and night. Paddy is shocked to discover that Ross is dating both Chas and Lexi. Paddy warns Ross on the sly that he won’t get away with it.
