It's a bittersweet moment for Jackson and Hazel when he's moved into a wheelchair. Although both are relieved, they're reminded of the seriousness of Jackson's disability and his absolute helplessness. Jerry arrives at the hospital and offers Hazel a cheque to help with the costs, but it's not much and tempers flare up again. The pair eventually call a truce, but Hazel is still worried about affording accommodation until Declan kindly offers to let her have Dale Head at a token rent. Meanwhile, John and Moira decide to take Holly back to the clinic and get her back on methadone. Holly is determined to work through it this time and there's a sense she hates herself for what she's done. The family realises that they can only deal with the situation together - and Holly, Moira and John later join forces to decorate their Christmas tree. Elsewhere, Viv lies to Bob by claiming she's been mugged; Mia is less than enthused with her hairnet and overalls when Declan arranges a packing job for her at Jai's factory; and Maisie is grateful when Nikhil helps to cheer Will up.
