Marlon has food for thought when Eli says Donna deserves a second chance since she forgave Marlon over the bungled burglary. Marlon tells Donna he is willing to give their marriage another go as long as she promises to be honest from now on and cut all thoughts of Ross out of her life. But when Donna receives a visitation letter from Ross she can't resist going to see him in prison. Ross pleads with Donna to visit Jasmine and find out why she lied to the police and she agrees to question her. Back in the village, Donna warns Jasmine that Ross is facing life in prison and a guilty Jasmine starts to crack, but Debbie interrupts just in time. Donna is stunned to sense that Debbie and Jasmine are covering something up - and Debbie is warning her off. Paul is in a despondent mood and pours his heart out to Lily and she suggests that he go after Jonny. Meanwhile, Val tries to smooth things over with Patricia to make things up to Paul and invites her over. Paul's heart leaps when Patricia reveals that Jonny is still in love with him and Lily gives Paul the money to buy a ticket to Australia.
