It's the day of the christening, and Laurel hides her worry as she and Ashley get ready, but Sandy knows she's troubled. Later, Rhona's stressed and Laurel's concerned when Marlon doesn't show up. Marlon lies to Paddy that he's got a catering issue. He goes on to arrive at the last minute, unable to meet Laurel's eye. Sandy watches Laurel through the service, wondering what's wrong. Later, back at the pub, Marlon admits the depth of his feelings to Laurel. Both are unaware that Sandy's seen everything and his worst fears have been confirmed. Meanwhile, Zak decides not to go to the christening as he's got a belter of a black eye after Cain hit him. Lisa then lies to Debbie by informing her that Zak had a fall. Later, though, Debbie is shocked to discover that Cain gave Zak his black eye. When Lisa confesses it was over Charity, Debbie disowns her father as she's had enough. Elsewhere, Carl pays a surprise visit to Debbie wanting money and brands the Dingles thieving scum; Nicola reminds Jimmy that they're meeting Declan later but is furious when she discovers that Ali is renting Brook Cottage and blames Jimmy for hesitating; while Belle's confused when Amy tells her that David's not the father of her baby.
