GARY SHOOTS HIS MOUTH OFF Gary frees Derek from his bonds but Derek’s distraught he’s lost his kids forever. Gary sends Derek on his way, satisfied he’s shown him who’s boss. Fiz calls at the furniture shop, with Jade and Hope, to drop off items from a house clearance, including an antique gun. Gary’s alarmed as he points out it’s still live. As Gary stows it away in a filing cabinet, Hope eyes the gun longingly. In the Rovers, a drunk Ali vows to win back Maria and see Gary get his comeuppance. As Fiz, Tyrone and Ruby walk round the Winter Wonderland, Jade finds Hope peering through the door of the furniture shop. A loved-up Gary and Maria head home, watched by vengeful Ali and Derek. In the furniture shop, the filing cabinet drawer lies open, the gun nowhere to be seen.
