Aaron's mood is increasingly dark and when Steve arrives in the village and wishes him luck for the trial, it's clear he feels he doesn't deserve his best wishes. Once in the court room, Aaron is disinterested as the defence try to demonstrate his closeness with Jackson. When the prosecution try to suggest that Aaron didn't want to be burdened with Jackson, he inadvertently strikes a chord with the jury, suggesting he thinks about Jackson every single day. As Paddy takes to the stand, he states that he'd be proud to be Aaron's dad but his confidence is shaken when he lets slip that Aaron once hit him and apologises later for potentially damaging his case. Chas, Paddy and Rhona worry about Aaron's state of mind when he questions whether he's done the right thing after all. Meanwhile, Alicia and Andy return from Spain but Leyla gets frustrated at the lack of answers about their move. Andy's not happy about Alicia keeping the truth from Jacob, thinking it would be better for him to get used to the idea of moving rather than surprise him at the last minute. Elsewhere, Debbie spots that Sarah has a bruise on her arm and wonders if Samson could have hit her, while Scarlett is thoughtful when Adam tells her that life's too short and she should spend her money on what she fancies.
