Laurel remains wary of Ashley, not wanting him around the kids or Sandy. Ashley takes the hint to leave as Laurel heads out, promising Sandy that she won't be long. Ashley goes to the café to work, but Edna arrives and is in no mood to talk to him. Laurel is awkward as she tells Bob that Sandy is unwell, and Rachel is suspicious when she overhears the conversation. Rachel visits Sandy and when she sees his bruise, she accuses Laurel of covering things up. However, Sandy wants Rachel to go. At the church, Edna sees Ashley and says that she can't forgive or forget what he's done. Back at Mulberry Cottage, Laurel tells Ashley about Rachel coming round and he is wracked with guilt as Laurel can't take much more of the lying. Meanwhile, Megan insists to Declan that she isn't interested in finding her son, despite her recent upset over the situation. Megan says that she doesn't want to rake over the past, but later Declan is on his laptop looking up private detectives as Katie arrives. Katie is shocked when he explains that he's looking for his nephew. She thinks he should leave the decision up to Megan, but Declan has no intention of dropping it. Elsewhere, Chas enjoys having Cameron around behind the bar and the pair secretly fall into a passionate embrace in the kitchen, Ali deliberately misses her literacy class but tells her family that it went well, while Lisa looks for the number of Zak's consultant and tells him that she's made him an appointment, leaving him wracked with guilt.
