Laurel tells Doug that she's just heard from Hilary and she's getting engaged to Alberto. Sandy persuades Aaron and Paddy to accompany him to meet Lawrence. Lisa and Zak confront Sam over the bailiffs. Alicia witnesses Jai and Leyla arguing in the pub and is suspicious. Sam explains that he unintentionally landed himself in debt and that Kerry has been helping him out. Lisa is livid and cuts up his card, demanding that he hand over any bills he receives in future and that he keep it quiet from Belle. Sandy, Aaron and Paddy arrive to see Lawrence who plays dumb over mentions of Harold Birch. Sandy persists and Lawrence eventually gives in when Edna is mentioned, ranting that she's a selfish bigoted woman and takes pleasure in learning of her misery. He has them escorted from the premises to Sandy's protests. Juliette meets with Jimmy and asks if she can send him the papers saying that he doesn't want any involvement with the child. She explains to Jimmy that her and her husband Greg have spent over a year trying via IVF and now they actually have a child on the way, Greg's left her and she'll bringing up the baby on her own. Alicia works out that Leyla's mystery boyfriend is Jai. Jimmy's thrown when Juliette plans to call the baby Carl. Nicola witnesses them hug outside the café. Sandy tells Edna that he's tracked down and been to see Lawrence. He explains that Harold lied about him being dead so she has nothing to feel guilty about anymore. Jimmy explains to Nicola that he'd met with Juliette so he could sign papers agreeing to have no contact with Carl. Nicola's livid to think Juliette has allowed Jimmy to name the child and the pair argue again, leading to Jimmy deciding they should both keep out of each other's way for a while.
