Daniel makes a last stand for his wife, Sinead. Sinead urges Daniel to stop punishing himself and smiles at him lovingly. Daniel is deeply moved to know she’s forgiven him. In a bid to appear positive, Sinead asks Daniel to fetch her some flowers with a lovely scent so she can imagine she’s outside.
As the day progresses Sinead makes plans with Billy for her funeral. Dr. Susan Gaddas calls on Sinead and asserts that it’s too late to move her to the hospice in her fragile state. Daniel reels and Sinead realises it’s time to start saying her goodbyes. Beth confides in Tracy how she cannot help but feel angry with Daniel. Sinead wakes up to find her family gathered around her bed. She takes comfort from listening to them bicker over inconsequential nonsense. With the family gone, Sinead squeezes Daniel’s hand, aware her time is running out. Sinead passes away peacefully with Daniel and Bertie on the bed with her. Daniel lies down next to her and cries silent tears as he holds her knowing he and Bertie will have to get used to life without her.
Gail returns from Thailand to find Tracy and Sally tearing a strip off Bethany. A tearful Bethany launches herself at Gail, clearly upset. Gail steers Bethany back to number 8 Coronation Street and parking herself on the carpet, assures her that yoga is the way forward and she needs to find herself again making Bethany feeling bemused.
The Sutherlands and The Barlows gather in The Rovers and wait nervously for news of Sinead. The two families bond by sharing fond and amusing stories of Sinead. Soon, Beth takes a telephone call from Daniel to inform them that Sinead has died.
