Harriet tries to talk to Pete about Emma's funeral but he's not interested. Victoria is nervous ahead of her and Adam's meeting with their social worker Rita. Harriet approaches Adam mentioning Emma's funeral and the state Pete is in. Adam is strongly against burying Emma in the village and doesn't want anything to do with Pete. David informs Eric that Leyla is planning to move to Greece and he's worried Jacob might go with him. Eric doesn't think he'll be much help as he's useless with women, revealing Faith has broken up with him. Rita suggests Adam and Victoria fix a date for next week to start the next stage of the adoption process. Harriet finds Moira has left Isaac in the house whilst she works in the yard. Moira states it's no big deal as she had the baby monitor with her but Harriet believes someone should've been with the baby. Moira states this was how she did things with her other children and reminds Harriet she doesn't have any children so she's in no position to judge. Drunk Pete buys a bottle of whisky on top of the cans he downed earlier. David fears Eric may turn into a recluse again. Brenda nags Bob about his birthday but he doesn't want a big fuss.

He loses his balance and falls down the stairs. As Leyla isn't leaving for six weeks, David and Jacob decide to use the time to persuade Leyla to stay. Moira explains to Bob that she feels she can't be trusted around Isaac as something bad will happen. Moira believes she got it all wrong with Holly and if she'd locked her daughter in her room, Holly would still be alive. Bob opens up about losing his daughter Dawn and explains the twins helped him move on. He insists Moira has got to let it go, promising things will get easier but Moira claims she's a bad person.
