Moira is still struggling to sleep. Brenda has picked up that Bob isn't acting himself. Victoria also notices her husband is distracted but assumes it's because of Isaac. Both Pete and Ross want to get the funeral over and done with. At Mulberry Cottage, Arthur notices his advent calendar chocolate has been stolen. Arthur wonders if Laurel took the chocolate as she hates Christmas. Arthur is upset that they don't have a tree up yet and after overhearing Laurel talking to Bob yesterday, he worries his mum wants to cancel Christmas. Laurel promises Arthur they'll get a tree this afternoon. Arthur returns to the living room to find Dotty munching on his advent chocolate. Moira has an appointment with Dr Cavanagh where she explains she doesn't think she's coping as she's tired constantly. Moira states she cannot sleep and asks for some kind of sleeping pill but as she's still breastfeeding, Dr Cavanagh can't prescribe her anything. Harriet manages to persuade Bob to attend Emma's funeral to boost the numbers. At Keepers Cottage, Adam puts a new sim card in his phone then calls the police accusing Ross of killing Emma.

As the Dingles continue their protest, Lisa is becoming more concerned about Zak's worsening cough. Adam admits to Victoria that he didn't destroy the letter - he planted it at Dale View then called the police. Victoria is disgusted her husband would try to frame Ross but Adam protests Ross attempted to frame him first. Moira comes across Holly's phone in a drawer. Whilst Laurel and Arthur pick out a tree in the shop, Brenda informs Laurel that she and Bob are planning to go to Emma's funeral to pay their respects. Arthur butts in, questioning why anyone would respect Emma as she was evil. Moira struggles to hold back the tears as she looks at the final message she sent to Holly. Victoria calls round to Dale View. She lies she heard Moses so whilst Ross checks on his son, Victoria looks for the letter Adam planted. Ross comes downstairs to find Victoria going through his belongs and demands answers. Victoria states she's trying to help him. She reveals Adam stupidly planted Emma's confession letter so they need to find it quickly. Ross spots police cars pulling up outside.

He reminds them they've searched the house several times previously. DC Wilson picks up the jug where Adam planted the letter.
