Mark’s encounter with Faye is in danger of consuming him as their re-wedding day dawns. Blaming his anxiety on the vow preparation, Mark does his best to avoid Natasha’s questions. The congregation arrive at the church without a hitch and Mark is forced to put his fears to one side. As the ceremony begins, Mark turns to realise Faye has slipped in at the back. She struggles to listen as Natasha expresses her love for Mark during her vows. Expecting the worst, Mark takes the opportunity to deliver a moving and emotional speech to Natasha, seeing it as his last opportunity to tell his wife how he feels and Faye witnesses the fact that Mark loves Natasha more than he did her. The ceremony draws to a close and as the happy couple walk up the aisle Mark meets Faye's gaze and can’t read her intentions. Later, Jimmy accompanies Nicola to the reception and masks his relief when she avoids alcoholic drinks. Nicola, still unaware that Jimmy knows about the baby, is pleased with the fact he is dancing to her tune. Laurel points out that she can’t hide nature and Nicola worries about her growing tummy. Rodney is also quick to deal out advice when Jimmy forsakes alcohol to share a fruit juice with Nicola and asks him not to make his knowledge of the pregnancy obvious. At the shopBob is missing Viv whilst simultaneously dealing with his unexpected frisson with Gennie. Bob struggles having her around and stuns Brenda when he snaps at Gennie for offering advice on the café. Feeling immediately guilty, Bob apologises to Brenda who tells him to do the same for Gennie, arguing that he’ll have to get used to not having his wife around.
