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. Every time Alfie tries to get upstairs to see Tommy, something stops him. He finds Charlie slumped in a corner, drunk. After sorting out Fat Boy, Kim and the sound system, Alfie finally makes it upstairs. When Kat arrives home, she’s surprised by the quiet atmosphere in the bar. Excited, Kat bursts into the bedroom, but stops when she sees paramedics with a sombre Alfie, Charlie and Mo. Kat realises her baby’s dead. Ronnie returns to the flat holding a baby. Roxy arrives and finds Ronnie shaking and tearful. Roxy asks what’s wrong, Ronnie tells her it’s James. Roxy’s relieved to find a perfectly healthy baby in the cot and doesn’t realise it’s Tommy, not 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. Just then Jack gets out of a taxi – he’s finally home and is thrilled to see his wife and new son. Carol agrees Connor can stay, but when Bianca rings to say Whitney’s on the way home, she sends him away. Connor passes Whitney in the Square. She invites him home, but he claims he’s not feeling well. Whitney’s upset so Connor kisses her. Everyone’s drunk at the Vic. Kim flirts with Fat Boy, Jane falls into Masood’s lap and Jodie tells Darren he’s lovely when he nearly proposes. Ricky tries to find Whitney a new man.
