ABI’S ON A DOWNWARD SPIRAL Abi orders more drugs as she struggles with Seb’s birthday. Kevin and Jack return from holiday, confiding in Debbie, Kevin says he wants to talk to Abi and hopes they can patch things up. But returning home he finds Abi and Dean cosy on the sofa, high on drugs and alcohol. Kevin orders Abi to pack her things and get out. While she’s in the bathroom, Dean steals Kevin’s garage keys. Abi races over to the garage to find Dean revving a customer’s car. She leaps in the passenger seat and makes a grab for the key, but Dean’s too quick and they’re soon careering down a country road in the stolen car. As Abi doubles over in pain, Dean stops the car. She crouches by the side of the road in agony, but to Abi’s horror, Dean leaps back in and speeds off. Abi calls for an ambulance but her phone dies. Abi surveys the empty road in pain and fear.

Lydia tells Adam that she hasn’t finished with him yet!
