Shona shows signs of consciousness. David sits at Shona’s bedside playing recordings of Max and Lily. When her eyes momentarily flicker, David is excited. The consultant confirms Shona is slowly emerging from her coma but has a long way to go. She briefly opens her eyes again but when it’s clear she doesn’t recognise David, he’s devastated.
Roy finally makes progress with Nina. When Roy finds Nina fretting over her coursework because her sewing machine has conked out he returns with Hayley’s old machine. Nina is touched and asks him to stick around and be her model. As she makes adjustments to the corset Roy chats about Hayley and the difficulties she encountered as transgender, Nina warms to him.
Meanwhile, Bernie reads a text from Kel agreeing to a one-on-one DJ lesson with Alfie.
Elsewhere, Imran accompanies a terrified Fiz as she’s called into court.
