Sandy's sad as he tries to remember the name of an old friend. Soon afterwards, Ashley suggests a care home and Sandy's angry, wondering who or what motivated the idea. Laurel's got mixed feelings when Ashley explains that Sandy doesn't want to leave, but she's guilty and unnerved when Sandy asks if it was her who tried to offload him. He wants further proof that there is nothing going on with Marlon, otherwise he'll be having a chat with Ashley. Laurel and Marlon also have another meeting and they both admit that they're not sure what's going on between them. They kiss, but Laurel pulls away. The pair decide they can spend time together as friends, but Marlon's clearly disappointed that it's not more. Meanwhile, Ruby and Ali unpack and officially move in. When Nicola arrives to read them the riot act with a list of regulations, she discovers Ali and Ruby are a couple. Later, Brenda's taken aback when she sees the pair kiss. In the pub, Ali and Ruby are introduced and Nicola announces Ruby as Ali's 'live-in love'. Elsewhere, Katie pushes Gennie's attention towards Nicky, while Hannah starts her new job at Home Farm following encouragement from Moira.
