Still angry and upset after seeing Katie, Andy drowns his sorrows in The Woolpack. His predicament is not helped when Cain decides to play devil's advocate and winds Andy up about Robert. Andy storms out of the pub and fetches his shotgun. Daz tries to stop him leaving but Andy pushes him aside and heads for Robert's caravan, where he waits for his brother to return with the gun loaded. Meanwhile, at lunch with Robert, Jack says he has an old gas heater they can borrow for the caravan and tells Robert he will drop it round later. Frantic Daz goes round to see Jack but finding him out he tracks down Robert and Katie and tells them that Andy's gone after Robert with a gun. Robert realises that Jack may have gone to the caravan and they tear round there in his car but arrive too late and find Jack lying on the ground covered in blood with Andy standing there with the smoking gun. As Katie speaks to the ambulance crew on her mobile blood drips from Jack's mouth and armed police arrive in place of the ambulance they were expecting. Robert is frantic as he attempts to stop the blood pouring from Jack's chest and refuses to leave his dad's side. Andy is a daze and only puts the gun down when the police give him a final warning. Katie tells Robert that he must tell the police the shooting was an accident. At the police station Robert and Andy are interrogated separately and both stick to their story although the police have already worked out why Andy shot Jack and who he meant to kill. As Jack remains in intensive care the detective interviewing Andy tells him that if Jack dies he will be charged with murder. Meanwhile, Terry and Dawn’s meeting with the mediator ends in acrimonious deadlock, as the couple cannot agree on the slightest thing.
