Tonight in Shieldinch…at the hospital, Lenny anxiously awaits news about Rory; Stevie’s stunned to discover the identity of the Two Jailbirds new owner; and, struggling without Poppy fighting her corner, Caitlin gets an idea which could break her case.

Following the street shooting, Lenny and Amber are on edge, waiting on word about Rory’s condition. While Kim tries to offer words of support, Amber is guilt-ridden for putting Rory’s life in danger with her Tyler Foulkes feud.

As Rory prepares to have an emergency operation to remove the bullet, Lenny sits by his son’s bedside and they have a heart to heart.

Amber decides to hand herself into the police but is talked down by her dad – prison nearly broke her. Despite their differences with Paul, one by one the Murdochs realises he’s the best chance Rory has for a brighter, happier future.

Elsewhere, Stevie’s shocked to discover Lenny sold him out and Tyler is the new owner of The Two Jailbirds. Adding insult to injury, Stevie’s stung when Tyler makes it clear he doesn’t need a manager – just a dogsbody.

Worse still, Stevie quickly realises Tyler plans to use the business as a front for criminality. After initially challenging Tyler, a debt-ridden Stevie faces up to the reality that he has no option but to swallow his pride.

Caitlin is dismayed to discover Poppy has left town. Worried about the hassle of finding a new lawyer, Caitlin has a brainwave – she’ll represent herself. Maggie is horrified at the idea, but Ruby assures her mum she believes in her.
