Ashley is subdued as Laurel takes the kids to school, with the situation between them still unresolved. Soon afterwards, Ashley ushers Sandy out when Jude arrives to talk about the parish move. Jude is surprised to hear that Ashley has not mentioned it to Laurel. Later, Ashley is shocked when Laurel suggests that maybe their marriage is not worth saving. Ashley feels uneasy, but he deceives Laurel when he tells her about wanting to go away to Leeds for a few days. Sandy is suspicious when he hears of the plan to take her away to Leeds and questions him further in the church. Ashley's temper rises and Sandy is shaken when Ashley loses all control and violently hurls a hymn book at him. Meanwhile, Charity is relieved but bemused to discover that she is off the hook with the police, and she's keen to find out what has been said to change their minds. At the same time, Rishi worries about his sons falling out, as Nikhil is refusing to run the business with Charity. Later, Charity tells Jai that she is no longer a suspect. Jai then feels increasingly vulnerable and paranoid over why Cain has defended her. Elsewhere, Nicola is fuming when Jimmy tells her that they can't employ Rodney; Chas's concerns for Aaron increase as she fears he could end up like Cain; while Carl receives a driving offence in the post and a plan forms in his mind to get Rodney to take his speeding points.
