Abi and the hens happily dance the night away at the bistro. Kelly returns home and does her best to mask her terror at what’s occurred. Realising she’s drunk, Imran and Toyah order her to knuckle down. Debbie tells a pleased Abi that Kevin is punching above his weight in marrying her. The stags wonder where Seb has got to and retire to the Rovers after Roy leaves early. Back at the flat, Corey rings Kelly and orders her to keep calm, wash her clothes and not to ring him again. When Asha returns from No.1, he claims he’s been at the flat for an hour, worrying about her. He apologises for his behaviour earlier on as a police car arrives in the street outside. They call for Roy while another officer goes to the bistro and tells a stunned Abi what’s happened. Sally runs to the Rovers and tells the men that Seb and Nina are at Weatherfield General. There, the nurse explains to Roy how Nina sustained several blows to her head and is currently undergoing an emergency craniotomy operation. When he is handed her jewellery to keep, he realises the extent of her condition. Seb is sedated. As a horrified Abi takes in his injuries, the doctor assures her they’re doing everything they can and they’re hopeful he’ll make a full recovery. Aadi calls at the flat and tells Asha about Nina. Corey puts on a show of concern. A stunned Carla sits with Roy and hears how Seb managed to call an ambulance before he fell unconscious. His distress at what happened to his niece emerges as he unburdens himself. Kevin and Abi agree to postpone the wedding. Corey persuades Asha not to rush to the hospital. Roy sits with an unconscious Nina as she recovers and talks to her about how lonely he often feels and vows to look after her. At Seb’s bedside, Abi rambles away about her son, trying to keep calm. The instruments suddenly start ringing out their alarms and the staff rush to help as Abi breaks down.
