Various villagers attend church for Easter Sunday. Ashley gives a brief sermon and then announces an Easter Egg competition hosted by Laurel. Lisa and Belle are eager to make an egg; Victoria only becomes interested when she learns there's a prize. She likes an egg until she learns Daz designed it. With Hari's prodding, Paddy buys the biggest egg he can find and begins to pipe icing on intending it to read ‘Toni will you go out with me?’ Halfway through he's interrupted by an urgent call out. Toni arrives home to see the incomplete egg with ‘Toni will you go’ iced on it. Assuming it's from Marlon and feeling hurt, she confronts him, wishing he had just told her to her face. Paddy sees Toni and Marlon arguing and is forced to reveal what the message should have said. Toni feels betrayed, assuming that Paddy had only pretended to be her friend to try to get her into bed. Adam is determined to avoid Steph blurting out their secret and suggests they go for a long walk together. Riddled with guilt, Steph wants to talk about what they’ve done but Adam warns her that dwelling on Terence will drive her mad. Steph suggests again that they go the police but Adam rubbishes her plan. Realising that he can’t keep her quiet forever he suggests they take a holiday. Meanwhile, Val comes clean to Diane that she's still in love with Eric. Alice is fed up by the Dingles doing everything for her with Samson, leading to them all leaving the cottage to allow her some time alone with her son. When Sam returns, Alice is content, but exhausted.
