Al visits Jimmi in prison and is upset by his defeatism.

Ruhma tries to get the measure of a young couple who aren’t what they appear to be.

Meanwhile a power-suited Emma visits DS Margrave and is left alone at her desk. Emma’s eye is drawn to something on the computer screen and she takes a photo.

At The Mill Daniel and Zara have another slanging match in reception, but Daniel sneakily passes her a note telling her to meet him at lunchtime whilst they continue to argue.

Pregnant Steph and pushy Billy Gannan turn up at St Phil’s and ask to see the obstetrician Tom Waverly. Billy refuses to listen when Tom and Ruhma insist Steph needs an emergency C section and convinces Steph to leave the hospital.

Zara and Daniel enjoy sneaking around too much and push it too far at a meeting with Bear, who kicks them out.

He speaks to Valerie about his worries, which Valerie does nothing to assuage.
