As the consultants carry out reflex tests on Jackson, his family and friends wait outside for news on the results. Jackson's raw anxiety is evident as the consultant asks if he can feel the pin he places against his body. Jackson fights back tears of disappointment as it becomes clear he can't feel anything. Frustrated that there are still no answers, Hazel tracks down the consultant and forces him to admit that it's looking highly likely that Jackson will remain paralysed from his shoulders down. Bereft, Hazel agonises about how she's going to deal her own child such a crushing blow, but Aaron vows that he'll be the one to do it. As Aaron struggles to tell Jackson he'll never walk again, Jackson's world collapses as his worst fears are confirmed. Meanwhile, a smug Nathan arrives in The Woolpack and announces that he's found a buyer for Home Farm. Simmering at Nathan's glory, Ryan leaves. Wound up, Nathan follows him out, just in time to see Ryan smash his car window. Nathan's furious, but Maisie orders him to let it go. Elsewhere, Nick buys Katie a drink, Rhona struggles to move on from recent events, Val appears torn when Amy heads home after her day in the village, and Bob falls for Viv's false concern and agrees to stay another night.
