"Declan asks Charity to accompany him to the abortion clinic to dispel his doubts; Laurel has growing concerns about Marlon; and Sam receives a worrying credit card statement." (TV Times synopsis)


Debbie asks Charity to have the kids for the night as she's going away to a hotel with Pete. Sam quickly replaces the TV before Lisa arrives back home. Zak warns him that Tracy better be contributing to the cost. Declan visits Megan asking questions, clearly showing doubts over Charity. Jimmy tells Nicola that he is heading off to do Zumba at the gym in shorts and a vest leaving little to the imagination. Laurel's father Doug arrives in time for her wedding and Laurel questions why Hilary isn't with her dad. He hesitates before telling her that Hilary's come down with a bug. Sam opens a credit card statement and sees exactly how much he owes. Lisa is barely through the door before she clocks Sam's worried face and asks Zak if he's still seeing Tracy. Charity is rattled when Megan informs her that Declan has been asking questions. Doug worries to Diane that it's not a good time for Laurel and Marlon to get married, but she reassures him. An increasingly desperate Charity asks Chas one more time to go along with her plan and pretend that she had the abortion, but Chas refuses point-blank. Kerry and Sam end up doing their community service together. Zak tries to make Lisa that Tracy is making Sam happy and she can't be using him for his money as Sam doesn't have any. Jimmy returns home in skinny jeans and a tight fitting T-shirt, leaving Nicola wondering exactly what she has started. Laurel and Doug come across Marlon watching something on the video camera but he quickly turns it off and covers. Once Marlon and Doug are out of the room, Laurel's concerns mount as she presses play on the video camera and sees Donna. A stressed Declan asks Charity to accompany him to the abortion clinic to prove that she didn't abort their baby. Kerry is concerned when she sees Sam try to steal a wallet and she warns him not to do anything silly, reminding him to think about Samson. A panicked Charity covers that she did go to the abortion clinic but she was escorting Debbie.
