Paul is in a quandary over whether to go in search of Jonny. Laurel advises him to try as he’ll never know otherwise whether it could work. In the Woolpack, Lily and Leyla are talking about Paul's potential trip but neither realise Val has overheard. She immediately goes to find Rodney and he's shocked to realise that nobody can find Paul. While Val elaborately complains she's lost her son, Rodney finds him at Home Farm helping Katie. Telling him that Val knows, Paul goes to the pub for a showdown. When Rodney defends Paul's decision to go, Val slams his fair-weather parenting. Rodney gives Paul his blessing and leaves. A desperate Val lies to Paul that Rodney has a serious heart condition to make him stay. Meanwhile, Debbie is furious when she discovers that Jasmine is planning to follow Ashley and Laurel to their new home in Leeds. She warns Jasmine that living with a vicar can’t wipe her slate clean, but angrily tells her friend to go if she wants to keep running all her life. Also, Lisa accuses Aaron of stealing from the family pot but he brushes her off with his cocky attitude. As Lisa is about to question Chas, she owns up to taking the money herself, insisting it was a loan. Lisa believes she's covering for Aaron. Her theory is proved right when, unbeknownst to the other Dingles, Chas pays back the money and then quizzes Aaron about that he did with it. As Aaron continues to make life hard for his mother, Chas breaks down and bolts upstairs leaving him perturbed.
