Ashley's belligerent as Doug puts pressure on him to persuade Laurel to return home. Doug also insists that he visits Laurel, too. When they arrive at the house, Gabby's pleased to see them but Laurel's sister Caroline explains that she's out shopping with their mum. Eager to see his wife, Ashley's adamant that he'll wait for her to return but Caroline firmly tells him that Laurel doesn't want to see him. With that, Doug's forced to usher a defeated Ashley home. Later, when Ashley questions why Laurel won't see him, Doug's determined to protect his daughter, until Ashley sees the error of his ways and decides to put his wife first. Meanwhile, Charity's finding village life hard and she's deflated when Debbie blanks her in the café. Charity later confides in an unsympathetic Marlon, who offers some sound advice of his own. Marlon suggests that Charity needs to convince Debbie that she's finally learned her lesson. He's shocked, though, when Charity suggests that it might be better if she simply took the money and disappeared. Elsewhere, Aaron suggests a lads' night out to Adam and Adam decides to invite Holly along, thinking that he's doing his mate a favour. Later, when Adam notices Aaron's nonchalant attitude towards Holly, he questions whether he's still into her. Aaron, however, claims that he's playing it cool, hoping that she'll come running.
