Arriving home, Alfie’s swept up in the Vic’s New Year celebrations. Fed up of hospital, Kat pulls out her drip, commandeers a taxi and heads home.

Roxy arrives and finds Ronnie shaking and tearful. Roxy asks what’s wrong, Ronnie tells her it’s James.

Ronnie’s about to tell Roxy what’s happened but Christian interrupts them, guilt ridden after kissing the piper. Roxy leaves, promising she’ll come back in the morning. Ronnie suddenly realises what she’s done, she has to give Tommy back now. On her way across the Square, Ronnie realises she’s too late when she sees an ambulance and Kat arriving home.
