Ray and Louise enjoy Christmas morning – both unaware of the nightmare that is about to unfold. Ray is keen for them to leave their troubles behind and wants to get away from the village as soon as possible. Louise agrees and packs. She later calls in to the pub to say her sad goodbyes to Diane, Tricia and Bob. Terry watches – heartbroken. The woman of his dreams is leaving his life forever. As Louise leaves The Woolpack, she sees what she thinks is a friendly face and agrees to getting a lift from them. But as they drive away from the pub, Louise soon realises that she is in the hands of the stalker! Louise panics – desperate to get away from the maniac. She reaches across and grabs the steering wheel in a desperate effort to get the car to stop. But as she does so, the car spins and ends up in a ditch, scratching a wall and hitting a tree. Fortunately for Louise, she comes round first and she isn’t injured – the same can’t be said for her stalker, who lies motionless, slumped against the wheel. Scrambling free from the car she races back to the village on foot – convinced that the stalker is dead and her nightmare in finally over. Finally back at Mill Cottage, Louise is convinced she is safe, but she couldn’t be more wrong. Ray isn’t there to help her and no sooner is she inside than a bloody, menacing figure appears at the door. Elsewhere Christmas is looking dark, the village is out of power and Christmas dinner looks out of the question. But things are looking brighter at the Tates, who have survived the blackout. As word gets out, Chris is reluctantly forced to accommodate most of the village for Christmas dinner. Jack and Andy are still trying to puzzle out Victoria’s reasons for conjuring an imaginary friend. Determined to get to the bottom of things, Robert decides to teach Victoria a lesson – but she doesn’t rise to the bate leaving them all baffled.
