Yasmeen slowly begins to doubt herself. Yasmeen listens - in disbelief - as Peter talks about alcoholism and invites her to join him at one of his Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. Geoff lies claiming his first wife was a violent alcoholic and her drinking is bringing back awful memories. Geoff asserts that if she really loves him, she’ll give up drinking. When Brian and Cathy break the news of Yasmeen’s drink problem to Alya, she listens in total disbelief and tells Yasmeen it’s absurd.
The truth finally hits David, hard. Fiz apologises to David for unwittingly bringing a loaded gun onto the street. David is furious and points out that Shona is in a coma because of her.
Freedom comes at a price for Fiz. Fiz pleads guilty to possessing a firearm without a licence and receives a four month sentence, suspended for two years, and a £500 fine.
Meanwhile, Bernie confides in Sean how she’s been posing as a 14 year old boy online and has arranged to meet up with Kel in order to get justice for Paul. Sean is horrified and urges her to go to Weatherfield Police.
Elsewhere, as Nina puts the finishing touches to the corset, somebody hurls a brick through the window. Roy tries again to convince Nina to come and stay with him but she refuses, preferring to stay in her Dad’s flat surrounded by his memory.
