When Linda realises she killed Dean she flies at her, calling her a murdering pig. Emma is devastated by the attack. Alma urges Gail to see that her life isn't over just because Martin has gone. Curly can't help thinking that he could have talked sense into Dean and Emma didn't have to kill him. Mike is annoyed when the Sykeses accuse Linda of marrying him for his money. She tells her father that she owes him nothing - he treated her like a skivvy when her mum left - but she will pay for Dean's funeral. Curly feels he can't help Emma as he believes that she did wrong in shooting Dean.
