At the pub, Diane is concerned for Marlon when he tells her the plan to share care of the baby. At the baby shower, Rhona is touched by everyone's generosity and is relieved to tell her friends that the baby has Down's Syndrome, but she's clearly upset by Betty's tactless comments and her annoyance grows when she realises Marlon has already told most of the people there. Arriving home, Rhona tells Paddy that she's going to have to break it to Marlon that he can't have the access he's hoping for - it's what is right for the baby whether he likes it or not. Meanwhile, Ryan has decided to leave Emmerdale. Cain has a last drink with him and they discuss Cain's nefarious life decisions. Later, Katie is shocked when she sees Ryan loading his bags into Andy's car and tells him not to forget the friends he made in the village. Elsewhere, Ella apologises to Adam for winding him up, but it's clear she's enjoying messing with his head; John is enthusiastic after a meeting with trading standards about his plans, but he's not happy when Declan shows up with a potential buyer; and Gennie's deflated when she asks Nikhil to join her for a drink but he declines in favour of a gym session and work.
