Part One: Tim leans on Aggie for support as he attends his pre-op appointment with Dr Handley. Bernie starts spoiling the Winter-Browns, telling Gemma she's had a pay rise from Dev. Abi cryptically suggests to Sally that she keep the tracker app turned on. Carla calls at the Rovers hoping for lunch with Jenny but she already has plans with Leo. Craig believes that tracing the owner of the crutch will prove to doubters that he's a real detective. Back in the street, Aggie invites Tim over for a brew. Sally is puzzled when the tracker places him inside No.3. Realising Shona was right, Abi tells her friend that Tim might be having an affair after all.
Part Two: Daniel expresses his misgivings to Mrs Crawshaw about the school's response to the upskirting complaints. The deputy head makes it clear that she expects his full support given his recent troubles. Dev calls at No.5 with a food parcel. Gemma is grateful but Chesney refuses his charity. The electricity goes off as they're arguing. Craig seeks help from Roy, remembering his efforts to solve the 'RP' mystery. Roy suggests 'THS' may refer to an institution, such as Trafford Health Services. Daniel and Mrs Crawshaw discover that Amy and Summer are leading a silent protest against the upskirters. The girls accuse the school of victim blaming by telling them to wear shorts. A sympathetic Daniel rings Suki Waters from the Gazette offering her a story. Chesney and Gemma's row over the food parcel spills out into the street. Gemma accidentally drops the contents onto the cobbles after taking the bags from Dev. She and Chesney are mortified when care worker Rahul Paswan arrives to see them in the midst of the chaos. Tim starts having trouble breathing at No.3 just as Sally marches over to the house. Seeing Aggie through the window putting a comforting arm around Tim, Sally screams at her neighbour to keep her hands off her husband. Aggie lets Sally in and it becomes clear to both women that Tim is having another attack.
Part Three: Sally finally learns the truth when Aggie dials 999 and explains that Tim is due a triple heart bypass. Craig confirms Roy's theory about the crutch and finds the record keeper for the crutches that haven't been returned. In hospital, a recovering Tim is told he's had an acute angina attack caused by stress. Sally asks him why he didn't tell her about the operation. He says he was protecting her from weeks of worry. Faye rushes to her dad's side after hearing about what's happened. Daniel advises Mrs Crawshaw to offer something tangible to the students. Her hand forced by Suki's presence, the deputy head announces that all pupils at the school will take part in compulsory consent workshops and Amy's suspension is revoked. The students celebrate. Tim's operation is brought forward to tomorrow. The care worker questions Chesney, Gemma and Joseph in a powerless No.5. He's keen to get them practical support as quickly as possible, suggesting matching them with a volunteer. Having just come to terms with Aggie knowing about the triple heart bypass before her, Sally is furious when George lets slip that he, Eileen and Adam did too.
Part Four: Clint tells Bernie he's bought a campervan with his half of the money. Daniel congratulates the youngsters on their victory. Leo introduces Jenny to his flattering housemates, Faith and Myles. She wonders about Leo's plans when the couple reveal that they're moving out. When they announce that they're having a baby, Jenny feels guilty that she can't give Leo one herself. Leo assures her that all he wants is her. She's taken aback when he suggests he'd like her to meet his parents. Sally doesn't see how Tim can love her if he doesn't trust her. She questions whether they have a future together.
