"Aaron puts on a brave face as his day in court arrives; Cain is determined to get to the bottom of Pete and Debbie's argument; Declan blames stress when Charity falls ill; and Jai prepares to dump Megan." (TV Times synopsis)


It's the day of Aaron's sentencing, and Chas and Adam head off to visit him beforehand. Charity is not feeling well and Declan comments that it could be down to stress. Cain is determined to get to the bottom of what has gone on with Debbie and Pete. When he hears about the abortion he is troubled, sensing there is more to it and soon realises the full picture. Nicola discovers that Jimmy has been looking at Botox online. Leyla tells Jai that it's over, which makes him want her even more. He tells her that he will leave Megan, as she has lost her mind anyway. Aaron tries to put on a brave face, but it's clear that he's anxious. Cain tells Debbie that he'll back her up if she wants to admit that the abortion was Charity's, but Debbie realises she can't drop her mother in it. She tells Cain that there's no hope of a reunion with Pete as they've only just recovered from her kissing Ross. Jai steels himself to dump Megan, but she crumbles over the stress of everything that has happened with Charity and he finds himself comforting her. Chas, Adam and Aaron all return to the pub, revealing that Aaron got a suspended sentence. Leyla is annoyed when Megan returns to the office and discovers she hasn't been dumped by Jai. Victoria catches Finn checking out Aaron, but Aaron tells Adam he's not interested. James suggests that Aaron have Ross's old job at the garage. Nicola can't keep up the game with Jimmy any longer as he leaves for an appointment for botox and hair plugs. She admits he's won to his relief. Debbie is upset as Pete collects his stuff from Mulberry Cottage, insisting she wasn't pregnant and she didn't sleep with Ross. Pete tells her regardless, he can't put up with everything anymore. Charity secretly takes a pregnancy test, but is relieved when it is negative. Edna asks Aaron to keep her secret about Harold and Lawrence White, saying nobody else knows about it. Declan suggests that a poorly Charity should call the doctor. Everyone is happy to see Aaron except Ross, who squares up to him menacingly.
