Jimmy is given an idea when Aaron approaches him to buy a truck for the new business. Megan and Jai are on tenterhooks as they expect Rachel to turn up for Archie at any minute. Ross and Finn are downhearted when Emma makes plans to leave already. Jimmy tells Nicola he'll be sharing the PortaKabin with Aaron and Adam and running the haulage firm from there. Moira's upset when she finds Cain and Noah are having tea at Debbie's and tells Chas that she's feeling pushed out. She adds that Cain spoke to Charity before she got taken away and won't divulge what she said to him. Emma tries to cook Ross and Finn a meal as a thank you but ends up burning it. James notices that she's at Dale View. Ali is suspicious as to why Rachel hasn't returned to see Archie. Megan suggests to Jai that they take Archie away for a while. Ali and Dan bump into Rachel in the street. James encourages Emma to stay by explaining that Finn is drifting and Ross is still grieving for his dead girlfriend, but warns her that Pete is so off with her because he remembers her trying to kill Ross. Eric complains to Chas about the PortaKabin and the plans for a scrap business right next to his cottage. Chas confronts Cain over Charity's confession and warns him he'll regret it if he leaves Moira for her. Rachel explains to Ali and Dan that she's been travelling around the UK, moving on to somewhere different when she suspected she'd been recognised. She's annoyed that nobody made more of an effort to find her and explain to the police what happened. Ali tells her of how Declan had Dan beat up and threatened the kids.

Zak's concerned when he walks in on Sam and Tracy preparing a belated surprise birthday party for Samson. Finn's ecstatic when Emma informs him she's decided to stay a while longer. Cain admits to Chas that he was thrown by Charity's confession but he's not intending to leave Moira. Rachel panics when Ali tells her that Jai has Archie and has told them all that she's in rehab. Megan and Jai pack in a hurry as they prepare to flee the village for a break in Cornwall before Rachel catches up with them. Rachel's relieved as she dashes back to her car and discovers Archie is still in there. Ali and Dan are baffled as to who Jai's child is if Rachel still has Archie.
