Having been ostracised from The Woolpack, Terry is glad that Viv has offered him some temporary accommodation. Uncharacteristically, Viv has given him the benefit of doubt over the stalking allegations - although she is revelling in all the speculation. On her return to Mill Cottage, Louise finds a funeral wreath has been delivered. As she reads the message, a torn up photo of her falls out. She pieces the photo together only to reveal it spells out a chilling message. Clutching the wreath in her hands she heads for Café Hope – demanding answers from Terry. Paddy and Emily bid farewell to Jacob as he returns to his real parents. His mother has come out of hospital early and they have come to pick him up. Their first experience of parenthood has been a challenge. But despite everything they have learnt a lot and look forward to the prospect of taking more children in. Building work is slow at the church conversion as they’re a man down. Syd suggests Mack might be a good stand-in to Ray. But Ray is no push over and Mack is forced to grovel after stealing brandy from Mill Cottage during his last job. Having apologised for pilfering, Mack is annoyed when Ray proceeds to make a total fool of him! With a bitter taste in his mouth, Mack plots instant revenge.
