"Ross finds April hiding at the garage, while Marlon, unaware the crisis is over, prepares to come clean to the police; and Paddy realises it was Edna who turned Aaron in to the authorities." (TV Times synopsis)


The next morning, Marlon is still frantic as the police question Ross. Vanessa sneaks Kirin out the house after a night of passion before Leyla wakes. Pete asks Finn to help out on the farm. Ross finds April hiding in the backseat of the car in the garage. He tries to coax her out, but is clearly out of his depth and struggles with his own emotions when she talks about her mum as though she were still alive. The police urge conflicted Marlon and Laurel to make a statement to the press. Running out of options, Marlon is ready to come clean to the police about everything, worrying that April could have been taken by any one of Gary's dodgy contacts. He's relieved when Ross turns up with her but warns him off. Finn helps out on the farm and builds bridges with James. Marlon suggests to Laurel that they go ahead with the wedding to take April's mind off things. Vanessa throws caution to the wind as she agrees to have a relationship with Kirin, providing they keep it a secret. The police inform Chas that Aaron has been sighted down south - Cain's plan seemingly working. Paddy notes Edna's curiosity in Aaron and realises that it was her who shopped him. Finn wonders to Victoria about if he should come clean to James about his search for his Emma. Paddy confronts Edna about reporting Aaron and she admits she was responsible. Ross tells Marlon that April saw him burning the money and that he had no right going against Donna's wishes. He warns Ross to keep away from them. In his frustration, Paddy blurts out to Edna that Aaron wasn't responsible for the garage fire and he only took the wrap for it to protect the person who was responsible. Covering to Rhona about what's troubling him, he tells her that Marlon shared a kiss with Donna shortly before she died. Ross overhears them talking.
