Ross tells the police that Jasmine can back up his story that he turned up and left Shane’s flat without even stepping foot inside. However, when Jasmine is questioned by the police she lies claiming it is possible that Ross could have been in Shane's flat. Eli tells Debbie and Jasmine that Ross is still being questioned and that he is not going to shed a tear after what he did to his brother. Jasmine, however, is sickened at to what she has done. Donna finds Ross in the cells and asks if he killed Shane. Ross is hurt she could even ask but before they can talk further Donna is bundled out of the cells by a colleague. Donna witnesses Ross being charged with murder and is crushed by his perilous situation. Elsewhere, Ashley tells the Kings of Tom’s defaced gravestone and it proves to be the final straw for fragile Jimmy. He heads to the Woolpack and almost provokes a fight with Zak. Attendance for the funeral is scant and it's clear that nobody is comfortable with the service. During Matthew’s funeral, Jimmy angrily demands to know who defaced Tom's grave. As he speaks a final mourner slips into church – it's Anna. He singles out people who could have a motive then storms out in disgust. Carl then delivers a eulogy for Matthew mentioning how much he loved Anna. They eventually lay Matthew to rest without further interruptions and afterwards Anna leaves the village to start a new life. At the wake, Carl thanks Chas for coming to the funeral insisting she got him through the day. They hug and Chas finds herself enjoying being close to him again. Before the moment can get any more passionate, Chas pulls away and returns home. After enjoying a drink to wind down after a hard day Chas finds a can of spray paint and realises it was Aaron who defaced Tom's grave.
