"Following Robbie's arrest for breaking into the abortion clinic, Declan wonders if there is any truth to Megan's accusation, and Charity knows she must think quick to throw her husband off the scent; Priya stirs up trouble for Kirin and Vanessa; and Jimmy plays Nicola at her own game." (TV Times synopsis)


Charity is smug as she watches Robbie get out of a police car. He explains to Megan that he was arrested for breaking into the abortion clinic. Megan despairs to think that any chance of getting proof may have slipped through their fingers. Tracy gives Sam a leather jacket for being so nice to her. Nicola and Bernice try to trick Jimmy into having a makeover but he escapes. Kirin tells a prying Priya that if he wants to see Vanessa again he will. Robbie arrives at work and winds up Declan by telling Jimmy that he was arrested for doing a favour for a mate who's in denial about his wife having had an abortion. Declan warns Robbie never to bring those accusations into his house again, but Robbie and Megan's determination to pursue Charity over this starts to stir doubts in Declan. Zak wonders if he has been too hard on Tracy and invites her round to watch a film on his new television. Priya overhears Vanessa telling Leyla how much she likes Kirin. Jimmy spies an opportunity to play Nicola at her own game and pays Finn for his trendy bow tie, braces and sunglasses as he heads off for a night out with Victoria. Charity becomes worried as Declan is distant with her. Despite learning Kirin's 'date' was actually his auntie, Priya twists the truth by telling Vanessa that Kirin has met a girl and they're going on a second date. Jimmy shows off his new look to Nicola and Bernice who are horrified. At the Dingles', Tracy loses her balance while dancing when Zak has popped out, sending the TV crashing to the floor. Sam asks Tracy if she can contribute to the cost of a replacement but she lies that she doesn't have any money. Beginning to panic, Charity begs Chas to lie and pretend that she was driving her to the clinic to have an abortion. She refuses saying if James ever found out it'd be over between them. She tells Charity that she warned her at the time to not go through with the abortion and flatly tells her she's on her own.
