Plot

Geoff prepares for his first radio show since the stabbing and hints to Brian that he has something special planned. Brian lets slip about Sally acting as a defence witness. Yasmeen is coming round to the idea that Geoff is genuinely remorseful. Sally is sad to see Abi leave No.4. Abi promises that it won't affect their friendship. Imran presses Toyah to e-mail Karen Glen and get them back on the fostering list. Toyah is evasive. Adam rings Safe as Houses pretending to be Gary, and confirms that the safety deposit box Laura uses is in Gary's name. Taking to the airwaves, Geoff publicly forgives Yasmeen and announces to his listeners that he wants to be reunited with his wife. Brian tunes in at The Kabin, where Ryan hears it. Gary finds out from Kelly that Laura went on a bender last night. He's appalled to see a bruise on Kelly's arm that Laura gave her. He hands Kelly some cash to treat herself on her birthday as Laura forgot. Safe as Houses rings Gary to follow up on the call from earlier, making him aware that someone is investigating him. Abi cooks for the Websters on her first night living at No.13 and sets a place at the table for Seb, despite him turning down her invitation. At The Waterway, Daniel pays Nicky to wear Sinead's cardigan and perfume and lie on the bed with him. Gary demands that Laura start treating Kelly better or he'll tell Rick what she's like. He gets rough with her when she calls his bluff. Yasmeen meets a representative of the Women in Prison charity. The woman, Elaine Jones, admits that she just used the charity as a cover story to see her and is there because she has also been abused by Geoff.
