"As the wedding party discusses plans for the big day, Marlon pretends that Chas needs his help and escapes, but Laurel discovers his deceit; and a grief-stricken Ross kisses Debbie." (TV Times synopsis)


Kerry has to explain herself when Bernice finds her sleeping bag in the salon. Katie takes Sarah to the salon for a haircut, where Kerry jokes about all of Andy's exes being together in one room. Debbie is caught off guard when Pete mentions moving in together to her; she agrees to think about it. Marlon is a million miles away as the wedding party discuss their plan. He jumps up telling the party that Chas has texted him needing his help. Pete tries to push Debbie for an answer and she's forced to admit she doesn't want him to move in. Laurel calls Chas and asks if she has spoken to Marlon, Chas says she hasn't. She wells up as she realises that Marlon has lied to her. Marlon confesses to Bob and Brenda that he can't stop thinking about Ross getting through to April about Donna when it should have been him. Gabby asks Bernice if she can still go riding with Katie and Sarah, which creates an argument between the two of them. Harriet feels sad when Ashley tells her that he is calling it a day with relationships. Debbie finds a tearful Ross packing his things after Bob kicks him out the café, but she tells him that the grief will just follow him wherever he goes. He breaks down, angry that Donna didn't tell him she had cancer. Laurel confronts Marlon about his lie and tells him she feels like she can't trust him. He tells her he went to see Brenda about April and an embarrassed Laurel apologises. Caught up in the moment, Ross kisses Debbie and asks Debbie to say she loves him. She kisses him back before apologising, telling him she can't as she loves Pete.
